However aircraft sales are reported slower than usual, and it’s quite evident by some of the advertising customers we advertised for have had to drop out due to little or no sales. You only have to look at some of our past issues and see who’s not there now. Too bad, economic downturns seem to pick them off one at a time. The helicopter industry has had few years show slower than usual activity, however indications are it is making a comeback, and much quicker than fixed wing general aviation. Specialized industry demands. Many of the AME’s and AMO’s seem to be doing well, there is enough steady maintenance to keep them up and running. The lean and mean operators still rely on good maintenance shops to help keep them operating, hence some economic stability there. Flying schools ands aircraft sales sure are down compared to others businesses in the aviation industry. And increased aircraft sales may take some time yet. Local flying schools who have been taking on foreign students who are training them here. They are managing to do much better than those who don’t, but that does not happen without considerable expense to provide and keep foreign students in training and they are not buying many aircraft at this time either. Till next issue, time to start getting ready for more flying. Keep flying, Keep Safe. . . . . . . . . . Bob

Aviation Humor? As the WWII bomber pilot settled into his seat, he pulled out a .38 revolver and placed it on top of the instrument panel. Turning to the navigator, he asked, "Do you know what I use this for?" The navigator replied timidly, "No, sir, what's it for?" The pilot responded, "I use this on navigators who get me lost!" The navigator proceeded to pull out a .45 and place it on his chart table. The pilot asked, "What's that for?" "To be honest sir," the navigator replied, "I'll know we're lost before you do." Did you hear about the new flight regulations for commercial aircraft? Now all commercial pilots must be able to read and write, hence, the two-pilot rule. One must be able to read and the other write. Two Redneck hunters got a pilot to fly them into the far north for elk hunting. They were quite successful in their venture, and bagged six big bulls. The pilot came back as arranged to pick them up. They started loading their gear into the plane, including the six elk. But the pilot objected he said, "The plane can take out only four of your elk. You will have to leave two behind." One of the hunters pushed forward, "Hey, last year our pilot let us take out six elk. It was the same model plane, same weather conditions, and everything. What's with this? We want you to allow us to fly out just like last year. Reluctantly the pilot finally permitted them to put all six elk aboard and the men all climbed in with their gear. But when they attempted to take off and fly out of the valley, the little plane could not make it. They crashed in the wilderness. Climbing out of the wreckage, one Redneck said to the other, "Do you know where we are?" "I think so," replied the other Redneck. "Yep! I think this is about 100 yards further along than where we crashed last year!" One mouse tells her girlfriend she dates a bat. " What is this "thing" you are dating?" " It's a bat, a mouse with wings!" " But he is soooo ugly!" " Well, yes, but . . . he is a pilot!" "So, a blonde fighter pilot was flying in a two ship one day. She was flying her heading just fine, when all of a sudden her wingman called, "We have Migs coming in at 6 o'clock!" She quickly took a thought, looked at her watch and said, "It's okay! It's only 5:30!" More Humor Next Month. . . . . . . . .

GTF able to power twin-aisle narrowbody: Pratt & Whitney

By Mary Kirby


rowing interest from airlines in the development of a new lightweight, twin-aisle narrowbody is among the factors driving Pratt & Whitney to ensure its PurePower geared turbofan (GTF) engine can provide as much as 40,000lb of thrust, a top executive at the engine maker says. The GTF has already been selected by Bombardier to power the 110/130-seat CSeries and by Mitsubishi to power the Mitsubishi Regional Jet (MRJ). The CSeries will be powered with the 20,000lb-24,000lb thrust class PurePower PW1000G. Yet, one of the reasons why Pratt & Whitney has "gone as high as 40,000lb of thrust is" that there are "airlines out there looking for a light twin", P&W vice-president next generation product family Bob Saia told ATI and Flightglobal last week during an exclusive interview in Dallas, where the engine manufacturer held a customer forum to exhibit some of its GTF hardware. These airlines are interested in an aircraft with an "[Airbus] A320, A321 seating capacity, so 170 to 220 seating capacity" that offers a twin-aisle configuration, says Saia adding: "The reason for the twin aisle was two-fold - cabin comfort, but another is can you turn the aircraft around faster in terms of boarding and de-boarding." It remains to be seen if airframers will pursue development of a twin-aisle narrowbody. Despite pressure from airlines to define their narrowbody replacement plans, Airbus and Boeing have instead been developing their current programmes to improve efficiency. Both airframers are looking at the possibility of re-engining their highly successful narrowbodies, with decisions expected this year. Some analysts believe Airbus and Boeing have stepped up their re-engining studies because a 150-seat variant of Bombardier's CSeries is in the works, but Bombardier has referred to such reports as "speculative". Nonetheless, Pratt & Whitney believes its GTF is well-positioned to play a role in any of these scenarios. "No matter what the application is, even if it were a lightweight twin-aisle, we believe the 40,000lb thrust regime would really cover that," says Saia. "So if someone like Bombardier decides to go larger, or if a re-engining happens, or if Boeing and Airbus really decide 'we're not going to reengine, we're going to do a new centerline aircraft and here's a new airplane' we can take all these requirements, and make sure we are ready to leverage the value of the gear, and have the demonstration to say, 'we know we're ready for this thrust regime'." With a fuel burn improvement of 15%, the GTF offers "significant" fuel cost benefits relative to a two shaft direct drive engine such as a conventional turbofan like the CFM InternationalCFM56, says Saia. "In the case of an airplane like an A320 or 737-800, you're saving about $750,000 per aircraft per year if you look at a CFM56 relative to our geared engine. So if you have a fleet like Southwest of [nearly] 600 aircraft, that's a significant amount of money," he claims. Saia further alleges that the maintenance benefit could represent hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of additional savings per aircraft per year. "Relative to the CFM56-5B, the GTF has four less life-limited disks and 1,500 less airfoils. The cost of these disks are approximately $100,000," he says. "Relative to the CFM International Leap X, the GTF advantage grows. The GTF has seven less life-limited disks and a minimum of 1,500 less airfoils. The cost of these disks represent a savings of $20 or more per engine flight hour. These life-limited parts plus lower airfoils will enable the PW1000G to have a greater than 20% engine maintenance cost advantage over the CFMI offering." A further 2% to 3% reduction in airline operating costs can be realized by European airlines that face airport noise fees. And additional savings from the GTF will be realized when airlines in Europe are forced to pay penalties for CO2 emissions, says the Pratt & Whitney executive.CFM International explains its decade-long development of LEAP technology has entailed extensive architecture studies focused on bringing the most advanced technology to every engine component, front to back: 3-D woven resin transfer molding, composite fan blades, a lean burn, ultra-low emissions combustor, next generation high-pressure turbine blades and third generation 3-D aerodynamics. "Each of these technologies is constantly evaluated through a filter of their potential impact on reliability, which is something on which our customers simply cannot compromise," says CFM. "LEAP is a more than worthy successor to the CFM56 product line and, we believe, the right choice for new or re-engined single-aisle aircraft applications in the future." Bombardier, meanwhile, is stressing to potential CSeries customers that a re-engined Airbus or Boeing narrowbody is not a new product. "It's a refresh," says Bombardier vice-president commercial aircraft programmes Ben Boehm. The only platform optimized "nose-to-tail" for the 100-149 seat market remains the CSeries family, he says. "Engines are only one part of the efficiency equation." Bombardier on 25 February announced Republic Airways as its third CSeries customer. The US operator has agreed to take 40 CS300s plus 40 options. Everything Aircraft

8/10 Paint and airframe are in near new condition. Minor scratches (shallow, short and less than 1 or 2 per square foot) are detectable only on close inspection (inspecting aircraft while standing at less than an arms' length from it). Paint on often-used fasteners and screws may be chipped.

8/10 Interior is in near new condition. Any smell, dirt or matting can be removed by simple cleaning. Some evidence of use can be found only on close inspection.

7/10 Paint has high gloss. Small number (less than 3 or 4 per square foot) of scratches are apparent, mostly on leading edges due to abrasion. Close inspection reveals only a few small dents or chips (less than 1 or 2 per square foot). Windows are clear with no crazing or discoloring. 6/10 Paint is shiny. Several small scratches, chips or dents (4 to 6 per square foot) can be found, mostly around high use areas (fuel caps, doors, struts). Some crazing or small stress cracks (less than 2 or 3 hairline cracks per square foot) are visible in plastic and fiberglass structures. Several windows may be milky at edges. 5/10 Paint is sound (no corrosion apparent). Slight oxidation can easily be polished out, leaving paint shiny again. Two or three small areas (rounded corner of cowling, part of leading edge) of crazing can be found in paint. Paint on leading edges is rough from abrasion. Touched up or repaired areas may be seen on close inspection. Small number (3 or 4 per square foot) of short cracks can be found in fiberglass wingtips and cowlings due to normal wear or hangar rash. Cowling seals are faded. Many (less than half) windows have milky edges. Several windows may be crazed or lightly scratched. Aircraft looks attractive to most people during walk-around. 4/10 Paint is generally sound. Small areas require special attention (touch up or repair by trained individual) due to oxidation, peeling, chipping, corrosion or crazing. Paint is dull in many (less than half) areas. Most windows are crazed and scratched. 3/10 Paint is not shiny and has peeled in many areas. Most leading edges and upper surfaces are crazed and oxidized. Moderate number (5 or 6 per square foot) of chips, cracks or dents can be found. All window surfaces are scratched. Even after touch-up and polishing, aircraft still looks unsightly. 2/10 Aircraft looks terrible. Paint is badly oxidized, peeled and blemished. It is well beyond the touch-up and polish stage. Corrosion, dents and cracks require extensive work. 1/10 Exterior is so full of corrosion, heavy dents or tears that it will not pass an annual inspection without repairs.

The Invulnerable Pilot Have you ever found yourself trying to turn a bad landing into a good one - like after several bounces down the runway? Have you continued a flight into deteriorating weather conditions despite the potential risks and hazards? If you said yes, you have been guilty of a pilot decision-making error. These are the leading cause of the majority of aviation accidents and the resulting insurance claims. The Invulnerable Pilot There are, of course, hundreds of different pilot errors. But perhaps the worst problem is what we refer to as “the invulnerable pilot”. The invulnerable pilot believes that the y have the skills and expertise to over come any situation that comes their way. They’ve usually been flying for years and nothing bad has ever happened to them. As a result, an undue sense of security and downright overconfidence can develop. This often leads to bad decisions—and big trouble. Here’s an example that I came across a few years ago. Peter, a very experienced pilot, was captaining a Learjet owned by a large corporation. He was ready for take-off as soon as his passengers arrived. They were two company executives who had rushed in from a business meeting and were behind schedule for a meeting at their next stop—which was a two-hour flight away. The weather conditions at their airport of departure consisted of a 2000 foot ceiling with scattered layers at 500 and 800 feet. The airport was surrounded by mountainous terrain. An IFR clearance would take at least 30 minutes. Since his passengers were in such a rush, Peter decided to depart VFR and try to obtain an IFR clearance en route, flying at about 1500 feet AGL. The one possibility Peter didn’t consider happened: he was unable to obtain his IFR clearance because of heavy IFR traffic. Peter was unable to maintain visual references to the ground. Just a few minutes after take- off the jet crashed into a mountain. The Moral of the Story This story shows that even a veteran pilot can make a fatal error when their decisions are based on something other than smart piloting. In this case time pressure was the culprit , but it can be any number of things. Another problem was that Peter didn’t think the situation through very carefully. He just assumed he would get his IFR clearance. It never occurred to him that he might not. Had he thought about all the possibilities he would have realized the danger. The low visibility and dangerous terrain didn’t seem all that significant to Peter and as the prototypical invulnerable pilot, he was confident that nothing could really go wrong for him. The trouble is that very often the first thing which goes wrong is also the last. In the luckiest cases such pilots get a big scare which straightens them and their attitude out. But the best way to avoid the risk is to keep educating yourself about proper piloting decisions. You have to realize that accidents can and do happen. Only by maintaining a healthy respect for safety and your own limitations can you minimize your risks. Keep learning ... And ‘keep on making good decisions.’

Ed’s Aerodrome

By: Ed Anderson

Howard DGA-15 The Howard DGA-15, built by the Howard Aircraft Corporation in 1939, was a derivative of non other than Mister Mulligan, the premier four seat racing Howard DGA-6, winner of both the Bendix and the Thompson Trophies in 1935. As with its’ forerunners the DGA-15 was a single engine, high performance, high-wing monoplane with a wooden wing and a steel tube truss fuselage. But, contrary to earlier models this metal-clad version with a deeper, wider body, superb visibility, extra headroom and long “legs” allowed four or five passengers to travel great distances non-stop in complete comfort. Also this solid, husky, cabin airplane sporting a smooth cowling, big prop spinner and panted fixed gear with electric-spring loaded flaps, emerged a coveted favorite of the rich and famous.

There were four variations of the now rare DGA-15, often referred to as the “Damn Good Airplane”. The first was the DGA-15P, powered by a nine-cylinder 450-hp Pratt and Whitney 985 Wasp Junior radial piston engine. Next, the DGA-15J utilized a 330-hp Jacobs L6MB radial and the DGA-15W used a 350-hp Wright Whirlwind R-760-E2 radial, followed by the GH-DGA-15P built for the US Navy and US Coast Guard as a utility and ambulance (Nightingale) aircraft. Numerous civilian Howards, DGA-8 through DGA-15 were commandeered by the U.S. Army during WWII to be used as officer transports and air ambulances and designated the UC-70. Overall the Howard Aircraft Corporation manufactured close to 550 DGAs, the last of which was built in 1943. Today there are roughly 70 airworthy DGA-15s, most in the United States where at least one or two appear at various antique flyins over the summer months around North America. The cleanly designed DGA-15 of “Benny” Howard, an early air racing enthusiast, had a peak speed of 201 mph at 6,000 ft and cruised nicely at anywhere from 170 to 190, with a service ceiling of 21,500 feet and a range of 1263 miles, fully fueled. Considered a ‘Golden Age’ Classic the Howard DGA-15 is said to be comparable to the Spartan Executive and Beech 17 Staggerwing of the same era. The included photo is of a DGA-15P, S/N 1010, tail #NC 727ST, taken at Concrete WA, in July 2009.

OLATHE, Kan.— Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), the global leader in satellite navigation, today announced a new Helicopter Terrain Awareness and Warning System (HTAWS) for the GNS 430W/530W series navigators. HTAWS is available as an option on newly purchased systems or as a field upgrade for current owners. When added to the GNS 430W/530W navigators, operators will receive graphical and audible alerts of potential terrain and obstacle conflicts along the flight path. “Garmin is serious about safety, and HTAWS is life saving technology that will increase safety of flight,” said Gary Kelley, Garmin’s vice president of marketing. Garmin’s HTAWS has forward looking terrain avoidance (FLTA) capability with visual and aural advisories to keep pilots advised of hazardous terrain. It incorporates a new five color terrain scale (red, orange, yellow, green and black), and also gives terrain voice alerts when descending below 500 feet. Voice callouts operate in all HTAWS modes, and Garmin’s technology allows the pilot to select multiple callouts, in one hundred foot intervals, descending from 500 to 100 feet above ground level (AGL). In addition, Garmin’s HTAWS offers a reduced protection (RP) mode that allows lowlevel operations with minimal alerting while continuing to provide terrain and obstacle protection. Garmin has incorporated three new helicopter specific databases for HTAWS. The obstacle database adds nearly 30,000 additional low-altitude obstacles. The new terrain database has been enhanced to show higher resolution. The navigation database lets operators navigate to over 7,000 heliports without having to create user waypoints at those locations.

Boeing Selects Pratt & Whitney to Power Boeing's Proposed NewGen Tanker to be Offered to U.S. Air Force


AST HARTFORD, Conn., March 5, 2010 – In an announcement made today, Boeing said it is offering the Pratt & Whitney-powered NewGen Tanker as its platform for the U.S. Air Force’s KC-X recapitalization program. Boeing’s proposal calls for the NewGen Tanker to be powered by Pratt & Whitney’s PW4062 engine. Pratt & Whitney is a United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX) company. “Pratt & Whitney is honored to partner with Boeing on the NewGen platform to be offered as America’s next generation of tankers for the U.S. Air Force’s KC-X program,” said Bill Begert, Pratt & Whitney Vice President of Military Business Development and Aftermarket Services. “The PW4000 engine has an exceptional track record of performance and reliability with numerous commercial customers operating the engine globally. We are confident it will meet Boeing and the U.S. Air Force’s performance requirements and expectations.” Pratt & Whitney has delivered more than 2,500 PW4000-94” commercial engines that collectively have logged more than 100 million flight hours on commercial aircraft around the world. The PW4062 is the highest thrust model in Pratt & Whitney’s PW4000-94” commercial engine family and is offered for both commercial freighter and military tanker applications. Two PW4062 engines, each delivering 62,000 pounds of thrust, will power The Boeing Company’s NewGen Tanker. The PW4000 family of engines includes models with thrust ratings ranging from 52,000 pounds to 98,000 pounds. These engines have an outstanding safety record, high reliability, excellent performance and low maintenance costs. The PW4000 family meets all required emissions and noise regulations, and offers superior fuel economy and maintainability.

Cessna A-37B Dragonfly The little airplane that could!! From a standard two-seat jet trainer, the Cessna T-37 ìTweetî evolved to become a warrior as the A-37B Dragonfly, ìSuper Tweetî. The T-37 ìTweetî had worn the colours of the United States Air Force since 1957 with a superb service-reliability record. In 1962 the Special Air Warfare Center of the United States Air Force set out to determine the potential of the T-37 for conversion to a Counter-Insurgency (COIN) light attack aircraft. Two T-37Bs were subsequently allocated for test and evaluation, which prompted numerous modifications, but without any firm decisions. It wasnít until 1966, with the growing involvement of the USAF in Vietnam, that the need for a light strike-jet fighter was authorized.

The Cessna Aircraft Company was then engaged to convert 39 T-37B trainers from those on hand at the DavisMonthan Air Force Base, later called the A-37A Dragonfly. Deliveries of the new variant, equipped with larger engines, wingtip fuel tanks, and eight underwing hard-points, among other modifications, began in May of 1967. The initial batch of twenty-five A-37As, after operational evaluation in Vietnam, were transferred to the 604th Air Commando Squadron at Bien Hoa, and then in 1970 were allocated to the South Vietnamese Air Force. In the meantime, Cessna Aircraft produced a new-build prototype strike-fighter, based on the T-37, classified as Model 318E. Still possessing the low straight wings, signature wing tanks, and inconspicuous twin wing-root jet intakes for the fresh 2,850-lb thrust J85-GE-17A engines, there were nonetheless significant differences. An airframe that was stressed for 6 Gs, a beefed-up undercarriage to ease rough strip landings, greater fuel capacity507 US gallons, plus 400 additional gallons in four underwing auxiliary tanks, and an air-refueling capability. The ìSuper Tweetî was re-designated the A-37B Dragonfly, a ground support gunship, bristling with assault weaponry, and other offensive advantages. Armed with a GAU2B/A 7.62-mm Gattling Minigun in the nose, capable of firing 6,000 rounds a minute, an ability to carry and dispense various mixes of general purpose, incendiary or cluster, and phosphorus bombs, made for a ëMighty Miteí airplane. Gun pods, rocket pods, gun cameras, cockpit Everything Aircraft

The ëDragonflyí weighed empty at 6,210 pounds, but fully loaded weighed out at 14,000 pounds. Maximum speed at 16,000 feet clocked 525 mph, with a cruise rate of 489 mph at 25,000 feet. Range was 460 miles, hauling a max load of external weapons; otherwise the Dragonfly could attain a reach of 1,010 miles. More than suitable for use against lightly armed ìinsurgentsî, the A-37s low stall speed, under 100 mph, made it a precision weapons platform. Cessna Aircraft built 577 units of which 254 were assigned to the South Vietnamese Air Force, where the ëDragonflyí became their primary strike aircraft. When South Vietnam was being overrun by the Communists, there were 187 A-37s on strength, from which the Americans were able to recover 92 Bs. The remainder were used by the North Vietnamese until the early 1980s, when most were passed off to Poland, the Soviet Union, and East Germany.

Apparently several A-37Bs wound up in the hands of Warbird collectors in the United States, and another four or five to Australia, and New Zealand where they are currently in airshow condition. A-37Bs were phased from regular service and reserve units in the United States onward from the late í70s. Some of these aircraft were exported to Latin American countries where more than 60 are still attached to active military squadrons. Surprisingly, hefty numbers of the T37B and T-37C models are in use with Germany, Greece, Turkey, and North Korea. The United States Air Force alone continues to operate over 200 of the T-37Bs for training purposes. The pictured aircraft is a Cessna A-37B Dragonfly, privately owned and currently operating in Australia under tail # VH-AZD. Story and Photos By: Ed Anderson

"Bell is committed to meeting the needs of our European customers; this acquisition allows us to more rapidly provide support and service to this important region," said John L. Garrison, Bell president and CEO. "This facility provides us with the capabilities to meet the maintenance and modernization needs of Bell's current European fleet of aircraft, while providing a foundation to accommodate future growth with local completion and customizing capability for new aircraft deliveries." "This central European location will further enhance our industry-leading Customer Support and Service organization, bringing the complete suite of Bell's support and service offerings closer to our European customers," said Danny Maldonado, senior vice president of Customer Support and Services and Chief Service Officer. "Supporting the European fleet is a priority for Bell, acquiring Aviation Service is one of the first steps to increase Bell's rising presence in Europe."
