Dale E. Van Cor is born and raised in Winchester. He is an inventor working on a better reformed system for nuts and bolts. His goal revolves around a fastener that is the powerhouse of all bolts or nuts. These fasteners will be more dependable than the average bolt or nut making them a better choice. Dale has also shared his invention with a teammate from Massachusetts named Harrison Frye who is a mechanical engineer. Harrison has been using a 3D printer to create a trial run of Dale’s design. Amazingly, when Harrison examined a wave threaded-cap-and tube connection on August 18th, it was withholding 20 pounds of water current for up to one hour. Dale mentioned that as of now only one out of ten trials have worked at full capacity.
This is a whole new design that is not like anything else ever made for physical connections so they are of knowledge that there will need to be patience. There is a goal to make O-rings and gaskets secured to perfection. They have mentioned that the spaceship Challenger failed due to O-ring complications, so the goal is to make them last for eternity. Some great leverage about this design is that there is complete contact between the superficial layers which is beneficial for the production of forwarding vibrations rather than holding them captive. Harrison and Dale believe that this product will be best used for aviation purposes due to the weight management that it can support. Van Cor greatly stresses the greatness of 3D printers and how they are useful in large amounts of production. He believes in the near future most will own their own 3D printer to assist with repairs around the house. Overall, this upcoming year will hopefully have a better technology in fasteners created by Harrison Van Cor.

Sonex Aircraft the kitplane maker is looking to introduce the homebuilt aircraft culture to mainland China. At the EAA AirVenture this week, Sonex Aircraft which is based in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, announced that it had collaborated on a partnership with the Chinese firm Uniworld in order to promote its line of aircraft kits and AeroConversion product line in China. By adopting a multi-tier strategy consisting of immersion in the Chinese training infrastructure for GA pilots and technicians, governmental advocacy and fanning the flames of growth for its recreational aviation enthusiast base. Sonex has selected Beijing Aviation Technology (BAT) as a franchisee and named Uniworld’s Francis Chao as the director of Sonex operations in China.
Sonex general manager Mark Schaible admits that expanding business in China won’t be easy as it is a “complex place for Western companies to do business with aviation in China already presenting its own unique and complex challenges.” Beijing Aviation Technology (BAT) has established a new aviation education center which features Sonex and flight simulator manufacturer Precision Flight Controls in Beijing. This goal of this center is to educate the Chinese public, entrepreneurs and government officials about general aviation which includes a space for workshops, seminars, aircraft projects as well as provide living quarters and offices for all the international aviation professionals who wish to share their knowledge and experience with center visitors.
Sonex hopes to increase recreational aviation freedom allowing the construction of amateur built aircrafts by lobbying with the Chines Civil Aviation Authority. The plan is to use the FAA regulations as a working template in order to establish a dealer and support network throughout China. Schaible believes that in order for privatized general aviation to grow and succeed in China, a network of private A&P and flight schools must be established in order for the qualified personnel supporting general aviation to become owner/operator consumers of GA products in China. The current aviation landscape in China only supports training operations primarily for the airlines and military.

Every year The U.S. Space & Rocket Center and long-term partner Honeywell hosts over 200 teachers from 25 countries and 36 U.S. states and territories at the HESA (Honeywell Educators at Space Academy) which spans over the course of two consecutive weeks in the month of June. This year the award-winning scholarship program which was created by Honeywell Hometown Solutions in partnership with USSRC hosted six teachers from the Philippines.
The program is designed to help middle school math and science teachers be more effective at teaching the STEM subjects such as science, technology, engineering and math. Since the time of its inception way back in 2004, HESA has helped over 2,576 educators from 56 countries and 52 U.S. states and territories graduate. CEO and Executive Director of the Rocket Center Dr. Deborah Barnhart practically beamed while stating how proud and fortunate they were to be able to partner up with Honeywell to offer this amazing program in order to help teachers and educators from all over the world. Dr. Deborah Barnhart believes that the program provides teachers with the innovative tools they need in order to engage students and lead them to more success in the classroom and ultimately in life. Past educators and teachers who have attended the program swear that
“HESA changed the way they teach and reinvigorated their passion for their work”.
The program consists of 45 hours of classroom, lab work and workshops focusing specifically on science and space exploration. This once in a lifetime experience includes sessions simulating astronaut-style exercises such as interactive flight dynamics programs, high-performance jet simulation, scenario-based space missions, and land/water survival training. 2016 Philippine graduate Christoper Ramayla gives his own testimony on how HESA was the best training he’s ever had and how eternally grateful he is for having been blessed with the opportunity to attend. HESA has a rigorous application process and qualified teachers are awarded scholarships, round-trip airfare, tuition, meals and accommodations completely free of charge courtesy of Honeywell and its employees. Honeywell to this date has provided over 3 million students with invaluable teaching techniques as a direct result of the HESA program.

Sukhoi has started a project on building a larger version of the super-jet 100. There hasn’t been much marketing on the new jet but the designs have been clearly made and clearly show that the new super jet is going to seat from 20 to 120 extra seats per jet. Nazario Cauceglia, the CEO of super Jet International has stated the new design of the Sukhoi 120 seat superjet is not going to the narrow plane market. Also, Sukhoi SSJ100 had two different versions where two different types of the winglets used on their aircraft, one was set at 1,500 nm and the other was set at 2,400 nm. However, the first prototype of the Sukhoi 120 seat superjet is going to have a 2,000 nm range.
Cauceglia has stated that redesigning the SSJ100 is going to cost a lot of money, which is why the new design of the 120 seat superjet is not going to be far from the SSJ100. The weight of the 120SSJ is going to increase significantly due to the increase in size. The CEO of PowerJet has stated that PowerJet SaM146 turbofan powerplant is not going to change at all, it’s enough to thrust at 2.5% more than the original version.
Two customers who have agreed to be part of the SSJ100 promotion, Ireland’s CityJet and Mexico’s Interjet, have favored Sukhoi civil aircraft, the SuperJet 100, over the airbus A320 and they don’t feel like they are ready to jump into the 120 Seat SuperJet. The crews that utilizes the SSJ100 have showed more interest and said that the superjet has a slight edge over the technology in the aircraft over the Airbus A320.

Introducing the new snap-lugs, a ruggedized power connector, that will replace the current and traditional terminal lugs, are a great innovation of TE Connectivity Ltd... They are an easy and quick to process without all the bulkiness of the traditional terminal lugs. They can connect thick gauge power cables to grounding devices, bus bars, power panels, and relays and therefore are used in Aerospace, Defense, Marine and many other harsh environments that require a ruggedized power connector. What makes these snap-lugs unique in their nature is that you can connect them and disconnect them without the requirement of a wrench and applying any torque force.
The snap-lugs are installed and disconnected without any special tools, a simple snap on to install it in place, and a simple push to release it. This feature makes it very easy for to deal with the bulkiness and ruggedness of the part. Also, snap-lugs are colored differently in order to distinguish between polarities, this will make it easier not to switch the polarities and avoiding any damage from reverse polarities. The snap-lugs are made shock proof to protect from any accidental shock accidents because they don’t require to have any metal on the outside. They also can withstand high intensity vibrations and extreme temperatures, which makes them ideal in harsh environments.
These advantages bring some benefits to the user because not only they are easy to use but that makes them accessible in confined places which doesn’t require room for installation due to the snap on/off feature.

Kelsey D. Atherton released an article on Popular Science’s website that writes about how there is conversation amongst defense companies that are proposing to launch drones from aircrafts carriers that are already in flight.
In the past, the United States Airforce was afraid to lose their aircrafts in the sky to other external factors. However, with the rise of drones, the US Air Force is taking steps in order to have unmanned aircrafts (or drones) to be sent out of aircrafts in mid-flight as protection. In this way, The US Air Force aircrafts will still be able to remain stealthy by using sensors.
One obstacle that the US Air Force is now facing is keeping the cost of the drones low. They want to implement these drones into many different types of small planes that don’t require much fuel or electrical power.
As of right now, DARPA’s plan is to have drones launch from adapted cargo planes. Not only should these drones be launched from the cargo planes, the drones would also be able to land back in the cargo planes as well.
However there are companies like SAIC and ArcXeon that want plans to take off from airships instead of adapted cargo planes. Here is what AirStation has to say about it this. “Airships themselves have been proposed as long-endurance surveillance platforms, but U.S. Army and Air Force programs started during the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were ultimately canceled. Instead, says [SAIC senior aerospace engineer Ron] Hochstetler, the trend has been toward a more distributed, multiplatform, multisensor capability using small- and medium-size UAS.
But conventional UAS require support infrastructure and
“their ground- and ship-based launch sites cannot be quickly relocated as needed, and are often unable to operate on land or ocean areas due to political sensitivities,” Hochstetler argues. “For UAS operations to fully reach their maximum capability, they require the mobility and geographical independence of an airborne support platform dedicated to UAS launch and recovery operations,” he says.”

First Delivery of Pratt & Whitney Modified A320neo Engines has arrived at Airbus group; whereby it will be installed on the Airbus A320neo. The new engines’ hardware has been modified to speed up the start time of the PW1100. Clients awaiting the new engine include Lufthansa and IndiGo; who plan to equip it in their PW1100G-powered aircraft. However, with the arrival of the new engine, not everyone is on board. Operators such as Qatar Airways has expressed that they have no interest in the new A320neo Engines; until the new aircraft start-time requirements are similar to those of A320s powered with in-service CFM International CFM56 or International Aero Engines V2500 engines.
Pratt is responding to this situation with a combination of software and hardware changes that are related to thermal bowing and the rotor bow. When an engine shuts down, it could result in unequal temperatures across the shaft section supporting the rotor. This would cause thermal deformation to the shaft material which would lead to the rotor axis to bend. At times, this could cause the compressor tips to potentially make contact with seals, linings and walls. Pratt & Whitney have solved this issue by prolonging the start-up time of the engine temporarily. A slower start-up time allow for a more even heating of the engine; thus eliminating uneven thermal deformation. In order to temporarily prolong the start-uptime of the engine, an engine-control software is put into place which would use sensors inside the engine to interrupt the start sequence at a low-pressure spool speed. Once the engine is at low-pressure spool speed, a signal is given to the engine software that indicates that the process has minimized the temperature differences to acceptable levels and normal start-up resumes.
The new revisions to the A320neo engines will have a maximum cooling time down of 90 seconds and will be delivered in June. Other changes introduced will include:

The defense industry crushes the risks found within supply chains by tackling three key aspects of the industry. Experts look at supplier risk, narrowing profit margin, and demand risk. Controlling these prevents the market from crumbling and counterfeit products from even coming in.
Supplier risk comes with product failures that can lead to disastrous events. This is why quality control Is essential for the aviation industry. Products need to be tested out to prove to work as intended. Buying from suppliers who have not been in the market for long is risky. They may not be quality products or just bad imitations. To battle this, buyers need to purchase from well-established suppliers who have demonstrated their products work.
Narrowing profit margins is the second aspect looked at.
To deal with profit and job losses that come from renegotiating contracts because of budget cuts, some suppliers compromise the quality of the parts they sell. This leads to inferior products to enter the market without notice. Congress has failed to act thus far, and a long-term strategy has to be established soon to prevent this from continuing, especially when there is little room for error in this industry.
Demand risk come from budget cuts and a natural fluctuation in the market. Manufacturers find ways to offer protection for suppliers to avoid financial burdens when there is a deficiency in demand. Rising cost is one way companies prevent their profits from diminishing ever further. Aging programs also offer a risk, as continuing to invest in a program may no longer yield as much profit as originally anticipated.
Focusing on this at once is not possible- or smart. Each risk has to be tackled separately through a series of strategies, not just one. If any problems arise, managing each glitch one at a time turns out to be more efficient- as the entire plan does not collapse at once.

It’s official. India has now taken over the top spot from the US as the fastest growing aviation market in the world. Coming in March with an estimated growth of 27.4%, which according to the International Air Transport Association (IATA) dwarfs the US aviation market growth of 4.1%. That’s over 6 times more than the US which comes in as the second fastest growing market in the world for those counting at home.
IATA cites the reason for such a dramatic growth lies in the fact that the “Indian domestic market is being propelled by the comparatively strong economic backdrop as well as sizeable increases in services.” With average flight frequencies within India set to increase by 11.5% year-on-year in 2016, domestic India airlines carried upwards of 23 million passengers in the first three months of 2016 compared to the 18.5 million figure during the same time period last year which means there’s been a growth of 24.03% according to the data released by the Indian aviation regulator. Also factoring in the fact that as a whole, the global domestic demand rose 3.7% in March compared to last year which is actually a slowdown from the leap year-aided 7.8% growth recorded last February.
The main driving forces behind the demand are the US and China market which are 2 of the largest markets in the world with the US accounting for 2 out of every 5 domestic passengers. Domestic capacity climbed 4.3%, and load factor retreated 0.4 percentage points to 81.6%. The Indian annual domestic revenue Passenger Kilometer growth rate has held steady in the double digits for nineteen consecutive months and counting. This combined with the extremely rapid growth in India contrasted with the slower and negative growth rate in other similarly-sized domestic markets have created a perfect confluence of factors that has crowned India as the overall growth leader in terms of seasonally adjusted domestic RPKs over the last year or so. Add to the fact that for the first time in a decade Air India has reported a modest operational profit and one can see how Indian aviation market is a rising tide that lifts all boats.

Delta Air Lines, the major American airline headquartered at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, has recently come to an agreement with Airbus, the civil aircraft manufacturer based in France, in order to purchase 37 additional A321ceo aircrafts. These newly ordered aircrafts will be utilized in efforts to renew and revitalize Delta Air Lines’ narrow body fleet. The A321 aircrafts are very fuel efficient and will be replacing older-generation jets such as the MD-88.
In 2013 and 2014, Delta Air Lines placed orders for the Current Engine Option version of the biggest Airbus A320 Family member. In March of 2016, Delta Air Lines received delivery of their first A321 aircraft. In total, Delta Air Lines has now ordered 82 A321 aircrafts. Each aircraft will be powered by CFM International’s CFM 56 engine.
"The Airbus A320 family of aircraft continues to be a cost-efficient, reliable and customer-pleasing mainstay of our narrowbody fleet," said Delta Air Line’s incoming chief executive, Ed Bastian. "The order for the A321s is an opportunistic fleet move that enables us to produce strong returns and cost-effectively accelerate the retirement of Delta's 116 MD-88s in a capital efficient manner."
“Delta is an industry leader in many ways, not the least of which is contributing to the trend toward larger, more fuel-efficient aircraft for their single-aisle fleet,” said the Chief Operating Officer of Customers, John Leahy. “The A320 Family continues to be the backbone of every airline in the world that is paying attention to what their passengers want and their investors need. In 2015, nearly 40 percent of our A320 Family deliveries were A321s, up some 10 percent from the previous year. Our customers, like Delta, know where to find the best comfort, economy and reliability.”
All of the A321 aircrafts ordered by Delta Air Lines will be equipped with the fuel-saving Sharklets system, which is composed of lightweight composite wingtip devices which provide for up to 4 percent fuel-burning savings. Sharklets offers an environmental benefit and provides the airlines with the option of extending their range up to 185 kilometers, or 100 nautical miles. These A321 aircrafts will also have the option of increase payload capacity by nearly 450 kilograms, or 1000 pounds.
