Aerochia LT-1 : The First Flight
The LT-1 made its first flight Friday afternoon May 14th, 2010 at Jacqueline Cochran regional airport in Thermal California. Test Pilot Len Fox was enlisted last minute to make the maiden flight after Darryl Greenamyer was sidelined with a rib injury. Len spent the morning reviewing the aircraft with designer/builder Andy Chiavetta and performing engine runups. After a quick lunch at El Grecko Loco (which definitely did not help settle any pre-flight butterflies) it was back to the field for a fast taxi test, and followed shortly by its first flight. Aerochia would like to extend its sincerest gratitude to Len for making the last minute trek from Oregon for the first flight as well as Penny at Tradition Aviation for giving us the run of hanger A.

Roger Followell's Geared Drives LS1 Engine for Legendary P-51
Bud Warren starts the Geared Drives the LS1 Chevrolet firewall forward engine package with Geared Drives PSRU prior to delivery to its owner, Roger Followell. I heard the engine start up so I grabbed my camera...this was the very first start and it did start first time. We are running it gently since there is no load on the engine.





Rolls Royce Turbine Engine For Small Planes
A 300+ hp (flat rated) turbine that weighs well under 300 pounds designed for small general aviation aircraft. Is this what the high-end piston market has been waiting for? Pilots may be asking, and Mooney may have an answer. Aviation news at http://www.avweb.com





Rare Bear & Friends, Reno 2003, the record setting Heat Race
I decided to throw up this old video (filmed using my old equipment) just because I always thought The huge 3 blade prop on the Bear sounded so wicked at speed.





Larry Ketterlings P-51 Engine
Geared Drives FWF engine package for P-51 at idle and run up very conservatively since we were testing ignition only and there was no prop installed. Note how smoothly the engine transitions from low RPM to higher RPM. Nice rumbling sound through the short custom Exhaust, volume increased via the collector with baffling within to provide back pressure and guard against shock cooling the valves.





Truyeart LS1 Engine for his RV-10 Starts for the first time!
Another Geared Drives LS1 engine package for RV-10 roars to life for the very first time! The engine starts easily and runs at low RPM since it is not good for it to run without the load of a propeller on it. We run it long enough to test the systems, check for leaks, test the PSRU etc. At the very end of the video you can see the breather on the PSRU kick over the little bit of overage of oil as it seeks its natural level in the gearbox. This is normal for a first run up.

Osprey GP-5 Reno 2010
Here is a short clip of the V-8 powered homebuilt racer 'Osprey GP-5'. After many years the plane finally made the trip to Reno only to have the engine let go during a qualifying run. As can be seen in this clip, Lee Behel managed to get the plane down in one peace, the plane should be back to try again for the 2011 races.

US navy begins tests of ADVANCED F-35 on aircraft carrier
The US Navy has begun to test the F-35 stealth aircraft on an aircraft carrier. The Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II is a family of single-seat, single-engine, all weather stealth multirole fighters undergoing testing and final development. The fifth generation combat aircraft is designed to perform ground attack, reconnaissance, and air defense missions. The F-35 has three main models: the F-35A conventional takeoff and landing (CTOL) variant, the F-35B short take-off and vertical-landing (STOVL) variant, and the F-35C carrier-based CATOBAR (CV) variant. The F-35 is descended from the X-35, which was the winning design of the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) program. It is being designed and built by an aerospace industry team led by Lockheed Martin. Other major F-35 industry partners include Northrop Grumman, Pratt & Whitney and BAE Systems. The F-35 took its first flight on 15 December 2006. The United States plans to buy 2,443 aircraft. The F-35 variants are intended to provide the bulk of its manned tactical airpower for the U.S. Air Force, Marine Corps and Navy over the coming decades. Deliveries of the F-35 for the U.S. military are scheduled to be completed in 2037.[9] F-35 JSF development is being principally funded by the United States with additional funding from partners. The partner nations are either NATO members or close U.S. allies. The United Kingdom, Italy, Australia, Canada, Norway, Denmark, the Netherlands, and Turkey are part of the active development program;[10][11] Several additional countries have ordered, or are considering ordering, the F-35. Design Overview The F-35 appears to be a smaller, single-engine sibling of the twin-engine Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor, and indeed drew elements from it. The Exhaust duct design was inspired by the General Dynamics Model 200 design, proposed for a 1972 supersonic VTOL fighter requirement for the Sea Control Ship.[199] Lockheed consulted with the Yakovlev Design Bureau in the F-35B STOVL variant's development, purchasing design data from their development of the Yakovlev Yak-141 "Freestyle".[200] Although several experimental designs have been developed since the 1960s, such as the unsuccessful Rockwell XFV-12, the F-35B is to be the first operational supersonic, STOVL stealth fighter.[201] Acquisition deputy to the assistant secretary of the Air Force, Lt. Gen. Mark D. "Shack" Shackelford has said that the F-35 is designed to be America's "premier surface-to-air missile killer and is uniquely equipped for this mission with cutting edge processing power, synthetic aperture radar integration techniques, and advanced target recognition."[202][203] Lockheed Martin states the F-35 is intended to have close- and long-range air-to-air capability second only to that of the F-22 Raptor.[204] Lockheed Martin has said that the F-35 has the advantage over the F-22 in basing flexibility and "advanced sensors and information fusion".[205] Lockheed Martin has suggested that the F-35 could replace the USAF's F-15C/D fighters in the air superiority role and the F-15E Strike Eagle in the ground attack role, although the F-35 lacks the range of the F-15.[206] Some improvements over current-generation fighter aircraft are: Durable, low-maintenance stealth technology, using structural fiber mat instead of the high-maintenance coatings of legacy stealth platforms;[207] Integrated avionics and sensor fusion that combine information from off- and on-board sensors to increase the pilot's situational awareness and improve target identification and weapon delivery, and to relay information quickly to other command and control (C2) nodes; High speed data networking including IEEE 1394b[208] and Fibre Channel.[209] (Fibre Channel is also used on Boeing's Super Hornet.[210]) The Autonomic Logistics Global Sustainment (ALGS), Autonomic Logistics Information System (ALIS) and Computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) are to help ensure aircraft uptime with minimal maintenance manpower.[211] The Pentagon has moved to open up the competitive bidding by other companies.[212] This was after Lockheed Martin stated that instead of costing twenty percent less than the F-16 per flight hour, the F-35 would actually cost twelve percent more.[213] Though the ALGS is intended to reduce maintenance costs, the company disagrees with including the cost of this system in the aircraft ownership calculations.[214] The USMC have implemented a workaround for a cyber vulnerability in the system.[215] Electro-hydrostatic actuators run by a power-by-wire flight-control system.[216] A modern and updated flight simulator, which may be used for a greater fraction of pilot training in order to reduce the costly flight hours of the actual aircraft.[217] Lightweight, powerful and volatile Lithium-ion batteries similar to those that have grounded the Boeing 787 Dreamliner fleet.[218]





Aero-TV: Trace Engines - Re-Engineered Turbocharged Power
C.E.O. David Czarnecki Profiles the 600 horsepower Trace Engine Until recently, general aviation manufacturers had only one option, the turboprop, for powering market aircraft. Trace Engines LP spent years developing and designing an alternative solution to meet the aviation industries need for a modern, cost effective reciprocating engine. Fully certified and ready for production, the Trace V-8 engine represents an evolution in engine selection. The turbocharged, liquid-cooled engine improves operational performance by increasing speed, range, and gross weight without increasing operational cost; TRACE Engines estimates that with the combined lower cost to purchase, repair, and overhaul, operators can save 35% to 50%. As Czarnecki explains, while a turbine engine displays constant power degradation as altitude increases, the turbocharged TRACE V-8 maintains cruise power all the way up with an estimated 600hp maximum takeoff and 500hp maximum continuous; an equivalent turbo prop engine would need to be rated as much as 1,000 horsepower at sea level to match the TRACE engines output at altitude. The result is an average 27 gallons per hour fuel rate, less than 30% than the fuel rate of an equivalent powered turbine engine. Currently, typical installations can be found in singles with gross weights up to 6,000 lbs and twins up to 12,500 lbs. The starting price remains at 200,000 for an engine package, with total installation costs varying due to time and labor. TRACE Engines LP is located in Midland, Texas where its production facilities are able to produce around 100 engines a year for over 40,000 potential aircraft retrofit opportunities.
