  • ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY EXPOSED in Indian Air Force Su 30MKI Aircraft

    A great short documentary about the Indian air force Su 30MKI Aircraft some may say that it is the most feared air force in Asia. The Indian Air Force (IAF; Devanāgarī: भारतीय वायु सेना, Bharatiya Vāyu Senā) is the air arm of the Indian armed forces. Its primary responsibility is to secure Indian airspace. It was officially established on 8 October 1932 as an auxiliary air force of the British Empire and the prefix Royal was added in 1945 in recognition of its services during World War II. After India became independent from the United Kingdom in 1947, the Royal Indian Air Force served the Dominion of India, with the prefix being dropped when India became a republic in 1950. Since independence, the IAF has been involved in four wars with neighbouring Pakistan and one with the People's Repu...

  • WORLDS FASTEST HELICOPTER Sikorsky X2 unveiled in US

    A helicopter is a type of rotorcraft in which lift and thrust are supplied by rotors. This allows the helicopter to take off and land vertically, to hover, and to fly forward, backward, and laterally. These attributes allow helicopters to be used in congested or isolated areas where fixed-wing aircraft would usually not be able to take off or land. The capability to hover efficiently for extended periods of time allows a helicopter to accomplish tasks that fixed-wing aircraft and other forms of vertical takeoff and landing aircraft cannot perform. The word helicopter is adapted from the French language hélicoptère, coined by Gustave Ponton d'Amécourt in 1861, which originates from the Greek helix/helik- (ἕλιξ) "twisted, curved"[1] and pteron (πτερόν) "wing".[2][3][4] English-language nick...

A great short documentary about the Indian air force Su 30MKI Aircraft some may say that it is the most feared air force in Asia. The Indian Air Force (IAF; Devanāgarī: भारतीय वायु सेना, Bharatiya Vāyu Senā) is the air arm of the Indian armed forces. Its primary responsibility is to secure Indian airspace. It was officially established on 8 October 1932 as an auxiliary air force of the British Empire and the prefix Royal was added in 1945 in recognition of its services during World War II. After India became independent from the United Kingdom in 1947, the Royal Indian Air Force served the Dominion of India, with the prefix being dropped when India became a republic in 1950. Since independence, the IAF has been involved in four wars with neighbouring Pakistan and one with the People's Republic of China. Other major operations undertaken by the IAF include Operation Vijay – the annexation of Goa, Operation Meghdoot, Operation Cactus and Operation Poomalai. Apart from conflicts, the IAF has been an active participant in United Nations peacekeeping missions. The President of India Pranab Mukherjee serves as the ex-officio Commander-in-Chief of the IAF. The Chief of Air Staff, an Air Chief Marshal (ACM), is a four-star commander and commands the Air Force. There is never more than one serving ACM at any given time in the IAF. The rank of Marshal of the Air Force has been conferred once, to Arjan Singh, by the President of India on 26 Jan 2002 and he became first five-star rank holding officer of IAF & serves as the ceremonial chief. In its publication the Military Balance 2010, the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) estimates that the Indian Air Force has a strength of 127,000 active personnel. However, various reliable sources provided notably divergent estimates of its strength over the years. Flightglobal (Flight International) estimates there to be around 1,588 aircraft in service with the IAF, according to its World Air Forces 2015 publication.[1] Mission[edit] Evolution of the IAF Roundel over the years: 1)1933–1942 2)1942–1945 3)1947–1950 4)1950 – present[5] The IAF's mission is defined by the Armed Forces Act of 1947, Constitution of India and the Air Force Act of 1950,[6] in the aerial battlespace, as: “ Defence of India and every part thereof including preparation for defence and all such acts as may be conducive in times of war to its prosecution and after its termination to effective demobilisation. ” Thus, the IAF has the primary objective of safeguarding Indian territory and national interests from all threats in conjunction with the other branches of the armed forces by defending Indian airspace. The IAF provides close air support to the Indian Army troops in the battlefield and also provides strategic and tactical airlift capabilities. IAF also provides infantry and artillery transportations or secondary Airlift for the Indian Army . The IAF also operates the Integrated Space Cell together with the other two branches of the Indian Armed Forces, the civilian Department of Space and the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) to utilise more effectively the country's space-based assets for military purposes and to look into threats to these assets.[7][8] The Indian Air Force along with the other branches of the Indian Armed Forces provide assistance in disaster relief such as during natural calamities by undertaking evacuation or search-and-rescue (SAR) operations and air dropping relief supplies in affected areas.[9] The IAF provided extensive assistance to relief operations during natural calamities such as the Gujarat cyclone in 1998, the Tsunami in 2004 and North India floods in 2013.[9] The IAF also provides assistance to other countries during relief activities such as Operation Rainbow in Sri Lanka.[9] History[edit] Main article: History of the Indian Air Force See also: List of historical aircraft of the Indian Air Force Formation and early pilots[edit] A Westland Wapiti, one of the first aircraft of the Indian Air Force. The Indian Air Force was established in British India as an auxiliary air force[10] of the Royal Air Force with the enactment of the Indian Air Force Act 1932 on 8 October that year[11][12] and adopted the Royal Air Force uniforms, badges, brevets and insignia.[5] On 1 April 1933, the IAF commissioned its first squadron, No.1 Squadron, with four Westland Wapiti biplanes and five Indian pilots. The Indian pilots were led by RAF Commanding officer Flight Lieutenant (later Air Vice Marshal) Cecil Bouchier.[13] World War II (1939–1945)[edit] Main article: India during World War 2 During World War II, the IAF played an instrumental role in blocking the advance of the Japanese army in Burma, where its first air strike was on the Japanese military base in Arakan.

The X2 first flew on 27 August 2008 from Schweizer Aircraft's (a division of Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation) facility at Horseheads, New York. The flight lasted 30 minutes.[1] This began a 4-phase flight test program, to culminate with reaching a planned 250-knot top speed.[9] The X2 completed flights with its propeller fully engaged in July 2009.[10] Sikorsky completed phase 3 of the testing with the X2 hitting 181 knots in test flight in late May 2010.[11] On 26 July 2010, Sikorsky announced that the X2 exceeded 225 knots (259 mph; 417 km/h) during flight testing in West Palm Beach Florida, unofficially surpassing the current FAI rotorcraft world speed record of 216 knots (249 mph) set by a modified Westland Lynx in 1986.[12] The X2 flight was purposefully made 37 years to the date of the S-69's first flight.[13] On 15 September 2010, test pilot Kevin Bredenbeck achieved Sikorsky's design goal for the X2 when he flew it at a speed of 250 knots (290 mph; 460 km/h) in level flight,[14][15] an unofficial speed record for a helicopter.[2][16] The demonstrator also reached a speed of 260 knots (300 mph; 480 km/h) in a shallow 2˚ to 3˚ dive,[17] slightly less than the 303 mph of the XH-59A.[18] On 14 July 2011, the X2 completed its final flight and was officially retired after accumulating 22 hours over 23 test flights.[19] With the end of development, the X2 will be followed by its first application, the S-97 Raider high-speed scout and attack helicopter http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sikorsky_X2

This allows the helicopter to take off and land vertically, to hover, and to fly forward, backward, and laterally. These attributes allow helicopters to be used in congested or isolated areas where fixed-wing aircraft would usually not be able to take off or land. The capability to hover efficiently for extended periods of time allows a helicopter to accomplish tasks that fixed-wing aircraft and other forms of vertical takeoff and landing aircraft cannot perform. The word helicopter is adapted from the French language hélicoptère, coined by Gustave Ponton d'Amécourt in 1861, which originates from the Greek helix/helik- (ἕλιξ) "twisted, curved"[1] and pteron (πτερόν) "wing".[2][3][4] English-language nicknames for helicopter include "chopper", "helo", "heli" and "whirlybird". Helicopters were developed and built during the first half-century of flight, with the Focke-Wulf Fw 61 being the first operational helicopter in 1936. Some helicopters reached limited production, but it was not until 1942 that a helicopter designed by Igor Sikorsky reached full-scale production,[5] with 131 aircraft built.[6] Though most earlier designs used more than one main rotor, Due to the operating characteristics of the helicopter—its ability to takeoff and land vertically, and to hover for extended periods of time, as well as the aircraft's handling properties under low airspeed conditions—it has been chosen to conduct tasks that were previously not possible with other aircraft, or were time- or work-intensive to accomplish on the ground. Today, helicopter uses include transportation of people and cargo, military uses, construction, firefighting, search and rescue, tourism, medical transport, and aerial observation, among others. The Sikorsky X2 is an experimental high-speed compound helicopter with coaxial rotors developed by the American aircraft manufacturer Sikorsky Aircraft. Sikorsky has incorporated decades of company research and development into the X2 helicopter on a $50 million budget. The S-69/XH-59A Advancing Blade Concept Demonstrator showed high speed was possible with a coaxial helicopter and auxiliary propulsion but it vibrated too much;[2] the Cypher UAV expanded company knowledge of the unique aspects of flight control laws in a fly by wire aircraft with coaxial rotors; and the RAH-66 Comanche, which developed expertise in composite rotors and advanced transmission design.[3][4] Other features include slowed[5] rigid rotors 2 feet apart, active force counter-vibration inspired by the Black Hawk,[6] and using most of the power for the pusher propeller rather than the rotor.[2] The fly-by-wire system is provided by Honeywell, the rotor by Eagle Aviation Technologies, anti-vibration by Moog Inc, and propeller by Aero Composites.[7] On 4 May 2009, Sikorsky unveiled a mock-up of a Light Tactical Helicopter derivative of the X2.[8] Sikorsky plans to submit a helicopter for the Future Vertical Lift program based on the X2 design.[9] The X2 first flew on 27 August 2008 from Schweizer Aircraft's (a division of Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation) facility at Horseheads, New York. The flight lasted 30 minutes.[1] This began a 4-phase flight test program, to culminate with reaching a planned 250-knot top speed.[10] The X2 completed flights with its propeller fully engaged in July 2009.[11] Sikorsky completed phase 3 of the testing with the X2 hitting 181 knots in test flight in late May 2010.[12] On 26 July 2010, Sikorsky announced that the X2 exceeded 225 knots (259 mph; 417 km/h) during flight testing in West Palm Beach Florida, unofficially surpassing the current FAI rotorcraft world speed record of 216 knots (249 mph; 400 km/h) set by a modified Westland Lynx in 1986.[13] The X2 flight was purposefully made 37 years to the date of the S-69's first flight.[14] On 15 September 2010, test pilot Kevin Bredenbeck achieved Sikorsky's design goal for the X2 when he flew it at a speed of 250 knots (290 mph; 460 km/h) in level flight,[15][16] an unofficial speed record for a helicopter.[2][17] The demonstrator also reached a speed of 260 knots (300 mph; 480 km/h) in a shallow 2˚ to 3˚ dive,[18] slightly less than the 303 mph of the XH-59A.[19] Sikorsky states that the X2 has the same noise level at 200 knots that a regular helicopter has at 100 knots. Above 200 knots, the rotor speed is reduced to keep tip speed below Mach 0.9, the rotor disc is slightly nose-up, and Lift-to-drag ratio is about twice that of a conventional helicopter. Hands-off flying was sometimes performed.[20] On 14 July 2011, the X2 completed its final flight and was officially retired after accumulating 22 hours over 23 test flights.[21] With the end of development, the X2 will be followed by its first application, the S-97 Raider high-speed scout and attack helicopter.[22]

Being selected to design the AW609 – one of most innovative aircraft in the history of aviation – is truly the realization of a dream! “For the design I sought to emphasize conscientious comfort, transparency, lightness and efficiency, expressing my philosophy of thoughtful evolution and seamless integration. “I wanted to make a design which is futuristic, but realizable. Based on science fact, not science fiction, it combines forward thinking, advanced materials and digital technologies. I wanted to establish a new paradigm in personal luxury aviation for the 21st century.” - Jozeph Forakis www.forakis.com
