Airbus BLADE Makes First Flight WEB
Toulouse, September 26th, 2017 – Airbus’ A340 laminar-flow “BLADE” test demonstrator aircraft (A340-300 MSN001) has made its successful maiden flight for the EU-sponsored Clean Sky “Blade” project. The aircraft, dubbed “Flight Lab”, took off from the Tarbes aerodrome in southern France at local time 11:00, and after a series of successful tests it landed at Airbus’ facilities in Toulouse Blagnac. The overall flight time was 3hrs/38mins.
Improving air traffic management with PEGASE
The volume of global air traffic has been steadily increasing for years. To accommodate the anticipated growth moving forward, Airbus is supporting PEGASE (Providing Effective Ground & Air data Sharing via Extended Projected Profile) - which is part of the SESAR (Single European Sky ATM Research) initiative. PEGASE connects jetliner and ground systems to optimise trajectory in three dimensions (latitude, longitude and altitude), plus time with real-time exchange of trajectory information – the Extended Projected Profile – between aircraft and air traffic management systems.
