Das Bundesheer interessiert sich angeblich für den S.C.A.R.-Pod von Airborne Technologies, montierbar an der PC-7. Das wäre kostengünstiger, als ein eigenes Flugzeug mit einem fix integrierten System zu ordern:

Maschin hat geschrieben: Nein. Unsere PC-7 haben im Schnitt erst über 4000h pro Zelle auf dem Buckel. Pro Zelle kann man bis zu 12000h fliegen. Derzeit rechnet man mit der Ausserdienststellung der PC-7 so gegen 2040! In den nächsten Jahren ist zudem noch ein MLU geplant. Aber zB man kann auch die PC-7 mit einem FLIR System Ausrüstung wenn man will. Ich habe einmal eine PC-9 mit solch einem System gesehen und sollte der Auftrag kommen kann die Werft bestimmt selbst was basteln.


Das mit Zelle wusste ich nicht, bin jetzt nur nach dem Baujahr gegangen. Wenn das so ist macht ein weiterer Betrieb der PC7 sicher Sinn, wobei bis 2040 schon eine starke, wenngleich österreichisch-realistische Ansage ist. Ein MLU wird sicher bald nötig sein: Avionik, ev. Einbau Schleudersitze wie in der MKII,...

Die PC-7 MkII ist ähnlich wie die PC-9. Das funktioniert mit der Zelle nicht. Ein Cockpit MLU soll kommen. Entweder von der RUAG oder man bastelt selbst was.

FIA2016: Diamond Aircraft DART-450 Unveiled

The fuselage has been preconfigured to accommodate sensors ranging from retractable surveillance cameras to electronic intelligence gathering systems. Stressed to +7/-4g, the aircraft features an Ivchenko-Progress/Motor Sich AI-450S turboprop engine and has a range of 1,500 nautical miles and endurance of eight hours. A GARMIN avionics system, sidestick HOTAS control system and an intelligent flight management system all contribute to making the aircraft a flexible and potentially highly valuable multirole aircraft at a cost-effective price.

FARNBOROUGH: Diamond’s Dart-450 on-target at show

While the aircraft is set to undergo certification, Diamond is planning to build three more Darts by the end of the year, and is targeting to complete 10 to 12 units in 2017.

Dries adds that by 2018, the Austrian manufacturer aims to produce one aircraft each week.

PARIS: Diamond to deliver first Dart-450s this year

The Dart-450 on display in the company's static exhibit is one of two examples built so far, with chief executive Christian Dries expecting a third to make its debut in late August or early September. Unlike the lead pair of Ivchenko-Progress/Motor Sich AI-450S-powered aircraft, the new asset will use a GE Aviation engine with a 550hp (410kW) output.

Diamond will deliver its first two Dart-450s to an undisclosed buyer this year in a non-certificated version. Dries declines to name the customer, but confirms that the pair will be used for testing.

The first delivery of a fully certificated aircraft is expected to take place in September 2018, and Dries says the company's ambition is to eventually deliver 50 Dart aircraft per year. This will include -550 and -750 variants, both powered by GE engines.

Buyers will be offered a Garmin G3000-equipped cockpit as standard, or can select a system from other suppliers, including Esterline, Dries says. The Dart features a sidestick controller, while customers have the option to select Martin-Baker Mk16 ejection seats or a pneumatic escape system from Zvezda.

Diamonds in the Rough

Two DART-450 have been produced so far, and three have been ordered by an Asian customer, which would be interested in buying more when certification processes will be accomplished.

According to the company talks are ongoing with a number of potential customers it met at the Paris Air Show, and production could rump up to 50 aircrafts per year.

Austrian Diamond DART 450 ‘breaks world record’ with fresh design

At Farnborough this past summer, Christian Dries, the CEO and owner of Diamond Aircraft, and his project director Clemens Knappert, briefed DIB’s Georg Mader on their new DART 450 turboprop trainer.

DIB: Are there provisions for external loads?

    CD: Yes. In the centre line of the fuselage, there’s a station to mount a pod of approximately 150 kg, and under each wing there’s an auxiliary fuel tank, or room for other external loads. And before you ask – we do not provide or support any weaponry but what the customer ultimately uses the aircraft’s capabilities for is up to them.

DIB: Often a manufacturer benefits from his own ‘home air force’ as a launch customer. How have the Austrian AF responded to the DART? Their own PC-7s are, after all, over 30 years old.

    CK: There’s no current or foreseeable place for the DART yet. As far as we know, their PC-7s are now getting a limited NAVAID cockpit upgrade. But we do have a good relationship with them and even an official partnership with the BMLVS. We mutually give each other feedback and input. But as yet we have no acquisition negotiations in the pipeline.

Image suggests DART-450 turboprop is possible candidate for new PLAAF basic trainer

Bild

The Diamond Aircraft Industries DART-450 tandem turboprop-powered trainer has emerged as a possible candidate for a new People’s Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF) basic training aircraft, according to information provided by Chinese reporter Wu Jie.

The journalist posted a photograph on his Weibo website of a DART-450 model in PLAAF markings that he claims was taken in September at an exhibition by the China Electronics Technology Corporation (CETC) Wuhu Diamond Aircraft Manufacturing Company, which is based in China’s eastern Anhui Province.

Formed in December 2013, this joint venture (JV) between the CETC and the Wuhu Municipal Government licence-builds Diamond Aircraft Industries aircraft such as the DA42 MPP, the DA42-VI, and the DA20.

DUBAI: Diamond debuts single and twin-engined quartet (14. November 2017)

The Dart 450 single-engined turboprops on display in the company's static exhibit are the first of two examples built so far, with chief executive Christian Dries expecting a third to make its debut flight before the end of the year. The lead pair are powered by the Ivchenko-Progress/Motor Sich AI-450S engine while the latest aircraft will use a GE Aviation engine with a 550hp (410kW) output.

The Austrian airframer will deliver its first Dart 450 to an undisclosed buyer shortly in a non-certificated kit version, and plans to hand over the first fully certificated aircraft in 2018.



Dubai Airshow: DART arrowing in on certification (13. November 2017)

The first DART-450 made its maiden flight on May 17 2016 and has been joined in the flight-test programme by a second aircraft, which is being used for certification tests. A third aircraft, to be powered by the 550hp General Electric (former Walter) 75100 engine, and fitted with Martin Baker Mk 16 ejection seats, is expected to fly imminently.

The DART-450 will be cleared to +7/-4g in aerobatic configuration (with centre fuselage fuel tanks only) and to +5/-2.4g in multi-role configuration, with the full internal fuel load of 826 gallons.

The side-stick will initially be mated to conventionally boosted flight controls, before being integrated into a fly-by-wire system when designed.
