Rotor track and balance technology is saving users time and money through the application of the RT-6 (pictured) from Helitune, which has been demonstrated by its flight reduction and quick processing of results. Helitune’s RT-6 is a system built for rotor track and balance - it measures the vibration and the rotor blade track split, Peter Morrish, technology manager at Helitune, stated. The aircraft can then be ‘tuned’ based on these findings.
As urban transportation programmes ramp up between manufacturers, the latest development from Airbus Helicopters suggests that the OEM and its CityAirbus eVTOL is readying for take-off by the end of the year. One of the premises behind the project CityAirbus is that with rising urbanisation and densely populated areas there is a trend towards air taxis as a solution to get quickly from A to B. The project kicked off with a feasibility study in 2015.
Airbus Helicopters has renewed its commitment to beat the Dauphin’s 22-week final assembly process to a mere seven weeks with the company’s soon-to-be certified H160. Three H160 prototypes and ten pre-series (PS) aircraft are planned, the latter aircraft will spend no longer than 24 weeks on the assembly line, before being delivered to customers. The aim is to meet this six-month target and beat it as time progresses through digitalisation and automated technology on the line.
@TotherChris@DefenceViper I agree. There needs to be more transparency with regards to conversations between industry and regulators on air space in urban environments. Be interesting to see how mainstream media deals with developments like this...
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
