    3 hours ago  Performance factors are correctly interpreted for flight planning purposes and on-board (Flight Management System (FMS)) calculations. Final reserve fuel is the minimum fuel required to fly for 30 minutes at 1, feet above the alternate aerodrome or, if an alternate is not required, at the destination aerodrome at holding speed in ISA conditions. The Lockheed U-2, nicknamed "Dragon Lady", is an American single-jet engine, high altitude reconnaissance aircraft operated by the United States Air Force (USAF) and previously flown by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). It provides day and night, high-altitude (70, feet, 21, meters), all-weather intelligence gathering.. Lockheed Corporation originally proposed .

    High-altitude flight planning means recognizing the aircraft’s weight at all times to prevent trying to force an airplane higher with a climb when it’s incapable of doing so safely. The bumps. Turns at high altitude also demand additional respect because of load factor. The most important advantage of the turbo was a very high critical altitude (if all the ducts were tight), and the small amount of engine horsepower required to run the turbosupercharger. Much of the energy used to run the turbo came from the tremendous heat (roughly degrees F.) .

    Performance Level Flight Performance and Level flight Envelope We are interested in determining the maximum and minimum speeds that an aircraft can fly in level flight. If we do this for all altitudes, the locus of theses points as they change with altitude describes the flight envelope. It is important to characterize aircraft into two. Aircraft Performance Aircraft performance includes many aspects of the airplane operation. Here we deal with a few of the most important performance measures including airfield performance, climb, and cruise. The following sections describe how each of these may be calculated at the early stages of design, by.

Design and Performance Calculations of a Propeller for Very High Altitude Flight Reported here is a design study of a propeller for a vehicle capable of subsonic flight in Earth's stratosphere.

[L Danielle Koch; Lewis Research Center.]. Design and optimization of a high altitude propeller can be a challenging problem due to the extremely low air density.

Even so, propellers are being used in many high altitude aircrafts such as: Egrett (), Condor (), Pathfinder (), Perseus A (), Perseus B (), Strato 2C (), Theseus (), Pathfinder Plus (), Centurion Cited by: High Altitude and the Piranha Advantage. If you are trailering your boat from higher altitude lakes to coastal areas at sea level, correct prop pitch can be an issue.

How many props can you carry. With the composite, modular design of Piranha, you can re-pitch your blades right on the water in minutes. the initial propeller design and analysis capability for predicting propeller performance of a High Altitude Long Endurance (HALE) flight vehicle. These design and analysis capabilities cover flight conditions from take off at sea level to the low air density, high Calculation of the Blade and Hub Stressing flight data and the maximum propeller diameter of m.

This was below the critical Mach number for the tip aerofoil section. Propeller Performance Estimates In order to obtain an idea of both the geometry and more importantly the characteristics of optimal propellers for each flight condition, propellers were designed for the conditions.

The engine performance test at altitudes of m was carried out on the high-performance test bench of the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) piston engine. The flight performance of UAV was studied, including propeller thrust characteristics, maneuverability, flight envelope, and cruise performance.

The results showed that with the increase in altitudes, the UAV climb. However, if one assumes that the propeller and motor are well matched to the design flight condition, some simple estimates of over efficiency are possible.

For very good brushless motors on might achieve motor efficiencies as high as much as 90%. For small brushed motors 50% is very common and 25% not rare. With this large variation, it is. Props have between 0 and 20 degrees rake. The rake angle determines how much the bow lifts out of the water.

High rake propellers are ideal for light-weight, high speed boats. Too much rake, however, will strain the engine and reduce overall performance. Some propellers are cupped, which means they have a lip on the edge of the blades. To date the high altitude propeller has been used to altitudes up to km (40, ft).

The high altitude propeller has 2 blades and is m ( ft) in diameter. It is constructed of a tubular spar with a light weight composite shell and is designed to absorb 50 kw (67 hp) of power at altitude. The propeller pitch is actuated by an. Airmaster CS propellers significantly out-perform GA propellers in this area.

Testing of a typical two place, Rotax powered aircraft fitted with a two blade wooden fixed pitch propeller, yielded a static thrust of ~kg. On the same engine/aircraft a CS propeller was capable of pulling kg (increase of ~ 45%) When Its Needed.

Pilots, aviation students, kitplane builders, aircraft fleet operators and aeronautical engineers can all determine how their propeller-driven airplanes will perform, under any conditions, by using the step-by-step bootstrap approach introduced in this book.

A few routine flying manoeuvres (climbs, glides, a level speed run) will give the necessary nine numbers. Design, wind tunnel test, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis, and flight test data analysis are conducted for the propeller of EAV-3, which is a solar-powered high-altitude.

1 Overview of propeller performance. Each propeller blade is a rotating airfoil which produces lift and drag, and because of a (complex helical) trailing vortex system has an induced upwash and an induced downwash.

Figure shows a schematic of a propeller. Other propeller designs include ducted or nozzeled propellers, contrarotating propellers, controllable-pitch propellers, and reaction fin propeller systems. A surprising range of 5 to 15% efficiency can be achieved over standard series propellers in selected applications with these systems, although relatively high capital investments are required.

Furthermore, as with any aircraft, the designer has a design goal in mind. For the Bonanza, the design goal was high speed cruise coupled with all around good handling and performance. The design goal influences propeller design and selection.

Propellers Typically propellers are divided into three main categories: fixed pitch, adjustable.
