New Airbus Military Training Centre opens in Seville



October 15, 2010 by Rob Vogelaar · Leave a Comment


Madrid, 15 October 2010







The new Airbus Military Training Centre has been opened today in Seville (Spain). The facility is among the most modern in the world with space for six full-flight simulators and a range of other computer-based training devices. It will house Airbus Military’s training provision for the A400M new-generation airlifter as well as its family of light and medium aircraft and military derivatives of commercial models.

Two full-flight simulators, one for the C295 and one for the CN235, which faithfully replicate the experience of flying a real aircraft, have already been installed.

An A400M simulator will be installed prior to the planned entry into service of the aircraft in 2012. All the simulators are capable of representing the full range of operations including specialised activities such as flight with night vision goggles, rough field take-offs and landings, and air-dropping of loads or paratroopers.

A range of other devices for training on specific aircraft systems, including the Fully Integrated Tactical System (FITS) at the heart of Airbus Military’s surveillance aircraft, and in the classroom or over an intranet are also provided. Further devices are dedicated to training engineers and technicians in the maintenance and support of the aircraft. The new centre has a staff of some 100, of which 40 are new positions, and is expected to train around 1,000 students per year. The two-storey building covers 13,000m2 and is built in the Andalusian style with environmentally friendly internal patios providing natural light and ventilation to most rooms.

Airbus Military A400M drops paratroopers for the first time


November 8, 2010 by Rob Vogelaar · Leave a Comment


The Airbus Military A400M military airlifter has dropped paratroopers for the first time in a successful demonstration of one of its key roles.
Six freefall paratroopers made jumps from aircraft Grizzly Three in separate passes from 6,000ft at the th Fonsorbes drop zone near Toulouse on 4 November.
The paratroopers, two each from the UK armed forces, French armed forces, and the French Centre d’Essais en Vol reported that the aircraft was easier to jump from than other transports. Four of them jumped from the left-hand side door, and two from the ramp.
In an earlier flight water-filled balloons were first dropped from the aircraft and, following the paratroopers, specially instrumented mannequins were dropped using static lines. Further trials are planned for 2011.

L'A400M, "un désastre"
Par Jean Guisnel
Selon le Financial Times Deutschland, l'Airbus A400M est "un désastre pour son fabricant", mais aussi pour la Luftwaffe, qui ne recevra qu'en 2014 les premiers de ses 53 avions (contre 60 prévus au départ), et dans une version ne correspondant pas dans un premier temps aux spécifications demandées. En réalité, les choses sont un peu plus compliquées, apprend-on aujourd'hui auprès de bonnes sources industrielles et militaires.

Comme on le sait déjà depuis un bon moment, Airbus a un problème avec le système de conduite de vol (FMLS - Flight Management System) de l'avion, produit par Thales. Plus exactement, avec certaines composantes du système, et plus précisément avec la gestion du mode "suivi de terrain", qui doit permettre à l'appareil de conduire des missions "en radada", c'est-à-dire au ras du sol, de manière complètement automatique. Ce mode TBA (très basse altitude) a été commandé par la Luftwaffe, mais ni par l'armée française - qui doit recevoir l'A400M à partir de 2013, pour que sept exemplaires soient opérationnels en 2014 - ni par la Royal Air Force, deuxième sur la liste de livraison. Pour les avions qui seront livrés sans cette capacité particulière du FMS, les aviateurs parlent désormais de "mode initial", en soulignant que, dans un premier temps, ils pourront s'en passer sans problème.

Fourth Airbus Military A400M makes first flight


December 20, 2010 by Rob Vogelaar · Leave a Comment


Grizzly fleet ends 2010 with 1,000 hours in the air
The fourth Airbus Military A400M military airlifter has made its first flight – the culmination of a highly successful 2010 which also saw the fleet of Grizzly development aircraft complete just over 1,000 hours flight-time and 300 flights.

Known as Grizzly 4, the aircraft took off from Seville, Spain with a weight of 130 tonnes at 10h18 local time (GMT+1) and landed five hours and ten minutes later.
Experimental Test Pilot Klaus-Dietrich Flade captained the flight, supported by Experimental Test Pilot Christophe Cail. The crew also included Test Flight Engineers José Aragón-Gómez and, Bruno Bigand, and Flight Test Engineers José Casado-Corpas, and Catherine Schneider. Catherine is the first female Flight Test Engineer and test crew member to participate in an A400M first flight.
Grizzly 4 is the fourth of an eventual five aircraft which will conduct the 3,700 hour flight-test programme leading to first delivery in around two years time. It will be primarily dedicated to cargo and air-to-air refuelling operations and carries a medium flight-test instrumentation load.
Airbus Head of Flight Operations Fernando Alonso said: “The on-time first flight of Grizzly 4 highlights what has been an excellent first year of the flight-test programme. We end 2010 fully on schedule and with every expectation of rapidly building flight-hours and hitting our key test objectives in the year ahead. I am particularly proud of the seamless work done by the Airbus and Airbus Military teams in the Seville and Toulouse Flight Test Centres which has been instrumental in this achievement.”
The maiden flight of Grizzly 4 followed the completion of a series of milestones in recent months – notably the first paratrooper jumps from the aircraft, which were highly successful and demonstrated the excellent potential of the aircraft for this military operation. Flights with the ramp and doors open have proceeded smoothly.
An extensive programme of flying the aircraft with simulated icing shapes attached to the wings and tail has been completed. These flights were performed by Airbus and European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) flight crews and represent the first set of certification tests completed on the A400M.
Preliminary tests of protective kits for rough-field operations have been completed in preparation for next year´s trials.
Flight and ground load testing is complete, as is measurement of cruise performance. All major aircraft systems have been tested and flutter tests throughout the flight envelope are extremely close to completion.
The Europrop International (EPI) TP400 engines have been performing well, with the in-flight relight capability having been successfully demonstrated and ground starts following an overnight cold-soak recently performed. Behaviour of the auxiliary power unit has been excellent, and it has been started as high as 40,000ft.
Following the A400M’s maiden flight on 11the December 2009, earlier this year Grizzly 2 and Grizzly 3 made their first flights in respectively April and July and their introduction into the fleet made possible the outstanding demonstrations of the A400M´s handling qualities at the Berlin and Farnborough airshows.

German Lawmakers May Defer A400M Decision, Handelsblatt Reports


German lawmakers may defer a decision on funding European Aeronautic, Defence & Space Co.’s A400M military-transport plan as they seek more answers about financial-risk estimates, Handelsblatt newspaper reported.
Legislators on the budget committee in Germany’s lower house of parliament, or Bundestag, have sent a list of queries to the Defense Ministry after officials speculated that the 500 million-euro ($663 million) risk estimate tied to the A400M’s funding is too low, the newspaper said.
Free Democratic lawmaker Juergen Koppelin removed the item from the budget committee’s schedule, Handelsblatt said. The committee was due to vote on the funding this week. Lawmakers from Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic bloc have also raised questions about the estimate, the newspaper said.

Major fatigue testing of Airbus Military A400M begins in Dresden


January 18, 2011 by Rob Vogelaar · Leave a Comment


Major fatigue testing of the Airbus Military A400M has begun on schedule in Dresden in January. The test airframe, known as MSN5001, will be subjected to a punishing regime of loads, 24 hours per day, for an initial four weeks, eventually simulating 160 flights per day. The first 1,665 simulated flights are required for European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) type certification of the A400M, but over the next 18 months a total of 25,000 simulated flights will be performed – equating to 2.5 times the A400M´s design-life. Static testing of another A400M test airframe, MSN5000 was completed in Madrid in September 2010. That airframe continues to be used for further fatigue tests of composite structures which will last until early 2012.

L'A400M sous la neige et ravitaillement



Article publié le 17 février 2011 par David Barrie
Deux avions se sont relayés en Suède pour des essais de grand froid et MSN001 a réalisé pour la première fois des tests de ravitaillement en carburant grace à un VC-10 de la RAF.


Airbus A400M ravitaillant auprès d'un Vickers VC-10



Le deuxième avion de test, immatriculé EC-402, est parti au début du mois de février pour des essais de grand froid à Kiruna, dans l’extrême nord de le Suède. L'Airbus A340-300 numéro 1, qu'Airbus possède, avait suivi l'avion de transport européen pour amener les équipes sur place et toute la logistique.

On a appris que l'avion a été exposé à des températures descendant jusqu'à -21°C et a complété avec succès le programme que les équipes avaient mis en place. La campagne s'est surtout concentrée sur le comportement des moteurs dans un environnement de grand froid.
Cette semaine, c'est au tour dd troisième avion de test, F-WWMS, de se rendre en Suède pour y effectuer des tests de même nature.
Samedi dernier, à Toulouse cette fois, c'est un Vickers VC-10 de l'Armée de l'Air Britannique, la RAF, qui a atterri. Cet appareil a débuté depuis mardi 15 février une série de vols qui ont vu les premiers essais de ravitaillement en vol de l'A400M. C'est l'avion numéro 1, F-WWMT, qui est utilisé pour cette campagne.
C'est le tuyau déployable de ravitaillement se situant à l'arrière de l'avion (il y en a trois en tout, un sous chaque aile et un sous le cône arrière) qui a servi pour les tests, comme on le voit sur la photo fournie par les services presse d'Airbus. Le ravitailleur anglais, qui sera retiré du service en 2013 et remplacé par des A330MRTT, repartira vendredi de Toulouse si tous les essais se sont révélés concluant.

Bigger show planned for Lima ’11




KUALA LUMPUR: Commercial aviation and shipbuilding segments will be added to the eleventh session of the Langkawi International Mari­time and Aerospace Exhibition (Lima ’11) show later this year, the Defence Minister said.
Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said segments of commercial and corporate aviation, commercial shipbuilding, maintenance, repair and overhaul and airport equipment and services would be re-introduced at this year’s exhibition.
“The segments are in line with expectations that Asia will lead global traffic by 2028. The exhibition for the commercial sector will provide more opportunities for companies to tap this lucrative market,” he said at the Lima ’11 launch at the Matrade Exhibition and Convention Centre here yesterday.
The exhibition will be held from Dec 6 to 10 in Pulau Langkawi.
Among the major attractions at this year’s show are the new Airbus A400M Airlifter aircraft, four of which are expected to supplement the RMAF fleet of 15 Hercules C-130s by 2015.
Defence Ministry secretary-general Datuk Dr Ismail Ahmad said this year’s Lima show was expected to attract about 500 companies and more than 50,000 visitors and investors from 31 countries.
RMAF chief Gen Datuk Rodzali Daud said visitors would be treated to a display by the 1Malaysia Air Display Team comprising five Extra-330 aircraft operated by the Aero 3 company of Germany.
Navy chief Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Jaafar said the navy would show off one of its submarines.

IDEX: Airbus Predicts Mideast A400M Sales




ABU DHABI - Airbus Military sees potential sales of 50 to 100 of its A400M military airlifter in the Middle East and North Africa, Didier Vernet, head of market development at the aircraft company, said Feb. 21 at the IDEX trade show.
Asked about export prospects for the turboprop transport plane in the Middle East region, Vernet said, "Yes, we have prospects."Related Topics

Airbus Military estimates the world market for military airlifters to total about 800 units over the next 30 years as replacements for the current 1,800 transport fleet. The European company hopes to snare about half the replacement market with the A400M, which aims to hit the segment for payloads of 25 to 50 tons.
The planned KC-390 from Brazil and the Lockheed Martin C-130J would grab sales in the market segment for 12- to 25-ton payload.
Airbus Military hopes the A400M will meet requirements for flying heavier armored vehicles, humanitarian equipment and helicopters.
The company needs to sign contract changes agreed with the seven European launch customers before it can begin selling the A400M to potential export clients.
With a total of 174 units ordered - 170 for the European nations and four for Malaysia - Airbus would fit export deliveries around the planned production of 2.5 to three units per month that is expected from around 2015-2016.
Export prices for the A400M would depend on the mission package selected - 50 "plug in" options are offered - the number of units and services required.
Belgium, Britain, France, Germany, Luxemburg, Spain and Turkey are the seven European launch customers. Britain has canceled three orders and Germany seven for the A400M amid budget constraints.

Airbus Military completes A400M full scale fatigue tests for EASA certification

Airbus Military has successfully completed the number of required simulated flight-cycles on a full scale test airframe to achieve civil type certification of the A400M by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). The test programme is required to simulate flights at least one year ahead of the actual operations performed by the aircraft. The test specimen at Dresden, known as MSN5001, has undergone 1,665 cycles, about five times the maximum number of flights expected to be recorded annually by each A400M in service, in order to give a large safety margin. By mid-2012, 25,000 simulated flights will be performed – equating to 2.5 times the A400M's design-life.

Denel Saab Aerostructures Helps to Keep Airbus A400M on Schedule

Denel Saab Aerostructures (SAAB), based in Kempton Park is responsible for the design and manufacturing of a vital component on the massive four-engine turboprop aircraft which recently made its public debut at the Farnborough Air Show in England. The Wing to Fuselage Fairing (WFF) was designed from scratch at DSA and is locally produced using predominantly local technology and labour.

DSA is the only component manufacturer outside of Europe and Turkey involved in the project and the South African flag is prominently displayed on the cockpit of the massive transporter currently undergoing advanced flight testing in challenging conditions.

The first operationally-ready Airbus A400M --- codename Grizzly, serial Number MSN 0006 –will be ready for delivery in accordance with the earlier deadlines recently provided by Airbus. DSA’s contribution was an outstanding achievement to this critical delivery, says Roland Diem, Project Manager at DSA.

The Airbus A400M was commissioned to meet the need for heavy airlift capacity that can transport modern military equipment and humanitarian relief supplies into inaccessible global hotspots. The aircraft has a payload capability of more than 30 000 kg, a range of 8 710 km and can land and take off in less than 1 000 metres.

Mr Diem says the Wing to Fuselage Fairing is an essential part of the aircraft that provides protection to the sensitive equipment under the centre wing portion against lightning strikes, hail damage and bird strikes. The WFF is made up of 86 composite panels and doors and some 1 100 metallic sub-structural parts and is designed for ease of systems installation and maintenance.

The local DSA team were given the task to design the WFF from scratch and its proposal was accepted by the Airbus programme management team. Although South Africa cancelled its own order of eight Airbus A400M aircraft the work packages remain with DSA. The company also manufactures the aircraft’s Top Shells which are positioned in front of, and behind the wings where it is joined to the fuselage.

Mr Diem says during the evaluation of the first prototype it became apparent that the aircraft was about 12 000 kg over its target weight. All suppliers and component manufacturers were required to reduce the total Aircraft weight by some 7 000 kg. In the end a combined saving of only 700 kg was achieved of which DSA was responsible for more than 130 kg – without compromising safety or functionality.

Subsequent load loops resulted in significant changes being required to the design and build of the aircraft. DSA were tasked to make the relevant changes to the WFF MSN0006 baseline to ensure structural integrity and safety was maintained. The initial indications were that the redesign could take up to three years to complete, without any additional resources, resulting in major delays in the final production schedule.

Through the technical expertise and ingenuity of the DSA design team together with a massive integrated management team effort, this period was significantly shortened. The redesigned WFF for the MSN 0006 aircraft has already commenced delivery of Sub-sets, to the full Ship Set, in November 2010 and will be fully delivered by mid April 2011 as scheduled by Airbus. This will enable the fully assembled aircraft to take to the skies in December 2011.

Full production is expected to start no later than 2016. Denel Saab Aerostructures expects to produce up to a maximum of 2, 5 WFF units per month from early 2016.

The Airbus A400M is a joint project between France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Turkey, Belgium, Luxembourg and the United Kingdom.

“Our participation in the Airbus production process is testimony to the ingenuity of our engineering team and the quality of our workmanship,” says the CEO of Denel Saab Aerostructures, Ismail Dockrat. It has brought significant benefits to the local aviation industry and confirmed South Africa’s status as a reliable supplier and innovative design partner.

New Head of A400M Programme appointed as industrial go-ahead reached



Airbus Military has given the green light to the industrial launch of the A400M airlifter and approved the start of series production.

This follows a thorough review of all aspects of the programme which demonstrated that all readiness criteria were fulfilled. This means that the first four series aircraft will be produced in 2012 and the production rate will gradually be ramped up to 2.5 aircraft per month by the end of 2015.

“The industrial launch is a very important milstone for the programme. It is also excellent news for the suppliers and workforce who depend on the programme and who can now look forward to producing the A400M in the years ahead, said Airbus Military CEO Domingo Ureña.”

Having reached this key milestone, Rafael Tentor, who has led the programme for four years, is handing over responsibility to Cédric Gautier, currently President and Chief Executive of EADS Sogerma, who will, from 1st April 2011, lead the programme to certification, delivery and entry into service of the aircraft with the launch customers.

“My most sincere thanks go to Rafael for all the work he and his team have performed over the past years. His enormous commitment and dedication have enabled the A400M to become the aircraft it is today”, commented Domingo Ureña. “Rafael has led the programme back on track, to first flight and initial Flight Test. The industrial launch means a turning point. I am convinced that, with all his engineering and above all industrial expertise, Cédric will be the best person to manage this new phase leading to type certification, series production and entry into service”.

As of 1st April, Rafael Tentor (53) is becoming Head of Airbus Military aircraft programmes, covering the Light & Medium C212, CN235 and C295, as well as the A330 MRTT and all other conversions.

Airbus Military A400M completes low-speed take-off tests


March 24, 2011 by Rob Vogelaar · Comments Off


The Airbus Military A400M has completed a challenging series of tests to determine the lowest speed at which it can take-off – known as minimum unstick speed or Vmu. During the tests, performed at Istres in France, the aircraft’s nose was raised until a special ‘bumper’ fitted to the rear fuselage struck the ground at the maximum pitch-up angle of 13º. In the close-up photo sparks can be seen flying from the bumper as it drags on the runway.

A400M contract amendment finalised with customer nations


Leiden/Seville, 7 April 2011 – EADS and Airbus welcome the conclusion of contract amendment negotiations with OCCAR and the seven A400M launch customer nations.

The contract amendment was signed today in Seville by Patrick Bellouard, Director of OCCAR – Executive Agency, and Airbus Military CEO Domingo Ureña, in the presence of Spanish Minister of Defence Carme Chacón. National armament directors and other representatives from customer nations also attended the ceremony.

The Contract Amendment now implements the changes which were agreed in principle by the Participating Nations with EADS and Airbus Military in the Frame Agreement signed on 5th March 2010.

“This is a major milestone, and EADS is particularly proud to have the support of all governments involved in this cooperation programme that represents a strategic capacity for Europe and its defence, and for the new generation of military transport worldwide. The A400M is a fantastic new aircraft already flying with outstanding and unrivalled capabilities", said EADS CEO Louis Gallois.

“From an industrial point of view, the programme is on track. This enabled us to agree, with full confidence on the industrial go-ahead of the programme over a month ago,“ said Domingo Ureña, Airbus Military CEO. “We are also very satisfied with the progress of the Flight Test programme which confirms day by day the soundness of the aircraft. Also, all the pilots of the Air Forces who have already tried and flown the aircraft, expressed great satisfaction about its agility and capabilities. We are sure that, once it gets better known, many more Air Forces around the world will be keen to have it in their fleets”.

With four aircraft flying, the A400M has achieved over 1,400 test flight hours and close to 450 flights. The fifth aircraft is complete and has started the final control phase prior to a first flight in early Fall. Civil Certification is to be achieved before year end, and first delivery to first operator – the French Air Force – by the turn of the year 2012 / early 2013. Today Airbus Military holds 174 firm orders from eight nations, the seven launch nations (Belgium, France, Germany, Luxemburg, Spain, Turkey and the UK) for 170,plus four for Malaysia.

About EADS
EADS is a global leader in aerospace, defence and related services. In 2010, the Group – comprising Airbus, Astrium, Cassidian and Eurocopter – generated revenues of € 45.8 billion and employed a workforce of nearly 122,000.

About the A400M
The A400M is an all-new military airlifter designed to meet the needs of the world's Armed Forces in the 21st Century. Thanks to its most advanced technologies, it is able to fly higher,faster and further, while retaining high manoeuvrability, low speed, and short, soft and rough airfield capabilities. It combines both tactical and strategic/logistic missions. With its cargo hold specifically designed to carry the outsize equipment needed today for both military and humanitarian disaster relief missions, it can bring this material quickly and directly to where it is most needed. Conceived to be highly reliable, dependable, and with a great survivability, the multipurpose A400M can do more with less, implying smaller fleets and less investment from the operator. The A400M is the most cost efficient and versatile airlifter ever conceived and absolutely unique in its capabilities.

C’est le premier gros turbopropulseur certifié par l’agence européenne et également le premier moteur militaire certifié par l’EASA selon les standards de l’aviation civils.
Depuis le premier démarrage moteur fin 2005, le TP400 a complété plus de 12000 heures d’essais dont 8000 sur les ailes de l’A400M.
Le président d’Europrop International, Simon Henlay, a déclaré : « Cet accomplissement marque une étape importante et positive dans le développement du turbopropulseur le plus avancé de la planète. Le TP400 a démontré ses excellentes performances grâce à une série de tests intensifs et d'essais en vol et nous sommes plus confiants que jamais qu’il apportera une amélioration significative de la capacité opérationnelle de nos clients quand il entrera en service sur l'A400M. Dans l'intervalle, nous continuons à concentrer nos efforts sur le soutien du programme d'essai en vol del’A400M, où nous avons maintenant atteint plus de 500 vols avec un excellent niveau de performance. »


Le TP400-D6 est un turbopropoulseur de 11 000 SHP conçu pour l’appareil de transport militaire A400m d’Airbus Military. Il a été développé par le consortium Europrop International, constitué de quatre motoristes européens : Rolls-Royce (28%), Snecma (28%), MTU Aero Engines (28%) et Industria de Turbo Propulsores (16%). L’entrée en service de l’A400M est prévu au début de 2013 avec une première livraison à la France.
