Pseudo satellite, potential disrupter, flies on sunlight

Zephyr 8 has a wingspan of 25 m and can carry 50% more batteries than the earlier version, yet is 30% lighter. This translates into a UAV that can carry a heavier payload and is designed to, typically, stay in the air continuously for over a month

Airbus bring four dimensions to Airspace

As Airbus looks to launch new-engine option (neo) aircraft, it has announced it is also launching a new cabin brand it calls “Airspace by Airbus.”

High-strength aluminum powder developed for additive manufacturing in aerospace, automotive

Metal laser melting has made a successful leap from rapid prototyping to an approved manufacturing technology, and the method is increasingly becoming an option for companies in high-tech industries, according to Toolcraft. And now the German manufacturer has teamed with Airbus APWorks to offer another option for additive manufacturing—the Airbus subsidiary’s Scalmalloy high-performance aluminum powder.

Ground testing begins on the GE9X

GE says the GE9X engine for the Boeing 777X is the largest commercial aircraft engine in the world. It will feature a titanium engine exhaust system from Aircelle.
