Aviation Cadet Primary Pilot Training

Germanys AERO 2011 Friedrichshafen: A Show Of Economic Confidence

Comfortably established as the largest general aviation (GA) show in Europe, Germanys AERO 2011 held at Friedrichshafen, really had something for everyone this year, ranging from the latest gliders, ultralight and motorized aircraft up to the latest in business jets.

Special exhibits included innovative electric-powered aircraft and helicopters, while the Berblinger Flight Competition and a Comprehensive conference programme maintained their usual high standard. With some 630 exhibitors from 29 countries and an improving economic outlook, customers are returning.

An interesting sign was the number of North American aircraft, engine or accessory manufacturers exhibiting, together with companies from the Czech Republic and Slovakia, Australia, Brazil and Russia. Attendance was finally counted as some 33400 people, 70% of the trade visitors being licensed pilots.

The show demonstrated an optimistic future for light and ultra-light aircraft, as well for electric motors and diesel engines, while developments in advanced composite materials and fuel cell technologies for smaller and larger aircraft are now gaining ground. It would seem that electric motors are now being increasingly adopted for gliders.

There was even an altruistic element that recalled some of the great names of aviation history. Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. and Lindbergh Electric Aircraft Prize (LEAP) organization representatives announced a joint initiative that continues the historic relationship between the Sikorsky and Lindbergh namesakes.

Sergei Sikorsky ,son of company founder Igo Sikorsky ,was among the representatives of aviations "first families" participating in promotional events to benefit Erik Lindbergh's non-profit group, LEAP. Other participants include members of the Wright, Zeppelin, Piccard, and Dornier families.

Erik Lindbergh, grandson of aviation pioneer, Charles Lindbergh, founded LEAP to promote solutions to social, technical and environmental challenges through prize philanthropy and education. LEAP awards the Lindbergh Electric Aircraft prize to recognize those who are leading advances in electric aircraft technology.

Sikorsky had the opportunity to promote the advanced technology research currently taking place within Sikorsky Innovations. This includes the Firefly all-electric helicopters, introduced in July 2010. The Firefly demonstrator is an S-300C helicopter equipped with a high-efficiency, 190-horsepower electric motor, digital motor controller, battery system and cockpit controls.

In cooperation with Deutschland AGs Piper Germany, Pipers dealer in Germany, the company introduced for the first time at the show, Garmin-equipped Meridian, Seneca and Archer aircraft.

Piper Aircraft Inc. has named European Aircraft Sales APs, Denmark, as the company's new aircraft sales representative for the Baltic and Scandinavian regions.

Italy-based Black shape has launched its new factory and production facilities in Monopoli, Italy, where it is beginning production of its new "Prime" carbon fibre, low-wing, two tandem seats, and ultra light aircraft. Black shape recognized that the carbon fibre UL segment was plagued with lots of good intentions, yet little conviction, with stagnation and prototypes that never made it off the ground.

Black shape decides that this could be changed and that a carbon fibre ultra light aircraft could be commercially produced. The Prime conforms to FAR 25 regulations, including auto-extinguishing carbon fibre and interiors, a four-spar cockpit and wing core, consisting of double pass through carbon fibre longerons, an internal ballistic parachute and an advanced diagnostics module.

In early April, Blackshape met with "interested "Greek parties to discuss the development of basic training aircraft for use in military training. Due to its performance, carbon fibre construction and emphasis on safety and cockpit construction, the Black shape Prime is particularly adapted to the needs of a military trainer. The discussions are to be followed by a tour of the Greek islands where the Black shape Prime will be presented to both civil and military pilots.

Piaggio Aero showed its P180 Avant 11 is said to be the only aircraft with the performances of a jet and the economics of a turboprop. This is based on fuel efficiency, lowering operating costs without sacrificing performance or environmental responsibility, less fuel burn means lower carbon emissions.

Simulator manufacturer and exhibitor, Mechtronix Systems Inc., an MWC company, announced that Lufthansa Flight Training (LFT) had placed an order for a new flight simulation training devices (FSTD) Simulator for installation at its Bremen facility, in Northern Germany. The simulator is configured as a Cessna Citation CJ1+ and is the sixth unit, acquired by the German pilot school in the past three years.

Like the five earlier supplied FSTDs, it will be used to train Lufthansa's cadet pilots during the initial phase of their curriculum. The unit will be ready for operational use in December and will be ready for operational use in December and will be evaluated by the German aviation authorities, LBA, to obtain dual qualification JAR FSTD A FNPT 11 MCC and FNPT 11.

The Cessna CJ1+ FSTD provides exceptional visual fidelity through a high standard RSI image generator and a 220 degree by 40 degree wide field of view. It comes with a suite of specific airport database for optimum realism during training. Featuring a Collins Proline 21 suite, the platform is also equipped with advanced avionics such as EGPWS and weather radar, enabling LFTs pilot students to benefit from state-of –the –art technology for the initial part of their training curriculum.

Indigenous manufacturer, Diamond Simulation, is a business unit of Diamond Aircraft Industries (DAI), Austria, and has its headquarters in Germany. Since 2005, the product line has been subject to constant further development, thus being technologically state of the art, allowing up to 100 hours simulator time to be set off against required flight hours in pilot training.

The product portfolio has been further extended by the DSIM DA40/42 convertible simulator that can be modified from single (DA40) to multi-engine (DA42) configuration, in a few easy steps. The device fully conforms to the worldwide qualification requirements for both training variants.

The manufacture of the first customer devices was completed by the end of April. These FSTDs fulfill the strict FAA rules for approval as FTD Level 6 (ACCORDING TO 14 CFR Part 60) and allow a greater share of the training to be flown on the simulator.

Apart from economic benefits, this means more safety and autonomy for training organizations.

Diamond Simulation is focused only on Diamond aircraft, namely: DA40 and DA42, both in diesel and avgas engine configuration.

Avionics

Avionics was much to the fore at AERO 2011 and Avidyne Corporation announced that its EX600 multi-function display (MFD) had received European Technical Standard Order (ETSO) approval from the European Aviation Safety Agency(EASA) .this ETSO paves the way for installation of the EX600 MFD in European-registered fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters.

Avidynes EX600 is a full –function MFD that is designed to enhance situational awareness and safety for pilots of general aviation aircraft and helicopters. Incorporating a 5, 8-inch diagonal, 640by 480 pixel display, the EX600 features Avidynes easy-to-use, pilot interface. With its new map panning keys and Quick pan function, the EX600 improves a pilot's ability to access and display critical flight data.

Quick pan allows the pilot to quickly toggle between the present position and a panned-to position, such as destination airport, with a single button push.

All EX600s include the ability to display CMax electronic approach charts and over 6000 worldwide airport diagrams at no additional charge, as well as support for European VFR Charts (aka Bottlang Airfield Manual), covering over 2200 airports in 29 European countries.

CMax Charts provide an added measure of situational awareness during critical phases of flight and while taxiing, both domestically and internationally.

GA Innovation

Innovation in general aviation has often been inhibited by lack of suitable technology, [particularly small jet engines. This is a problem that has now been addressed by French manufacturer Price Induction SA, with the introduced the DGEN 380, a high bypass ratio turbofan engine optimized for the lighter sector of aviation and its pilots.

The DGEN 380 allows the design of aircraft that can cruise up to 240 knots with an optimal consumption rate at altitudes between 10000 and 15000 feet.

It features an "all electric" concept with integrate FADEC, low vibration level and low noise signature. It is particularly applicable to PLJ (Personal Light Jet) development.

The DGEN 380 represents the first member of high bypass ratio engines with a thrust capability varying from 2.5KN to 4Kn. The DGEN 390, with 3KN OF THRUST (flat rating ISA+10),is the natural evolution of theDGEN 380  and will be developed concurrently.

Price Induction SA is based in the Aquitaine region, France, in Anglet (offices) and Tarnos (test bench) .Today, the company counts more than forty employees, more than 30 of which are engineers. The company recently opened two subsidiaries, one in Atlanta, Georgia, USA and one in Sao Jose dos Campos SP Brasil.

Answer:

There is not enough information to assess chances. Weighted or Unweighted Gpa. A 3.5 is below the 3.87 median Gpa at Usafa, but if this is at a very competitive school and depending on the class rank, this could be a very competitive Gpa and PAR(prior academic record.) Grade trends are also considered. Sophomore year is given more consideration than Freshman and Junior than Sophomore; hence, a 3.5 overall with a rising grade trend is not the same as a steady 3.5. Sat or Act scores weigh heavily on the Academic Composite portion of the whole person score as does class rank based on weighted Gpa, the courses completed, the courses enrolled in Senior year, and the competitive level of the high school. A 2000 looks good however Usafa only considers Math and Cr. A lot of extracurricular activities are listed; but, like most highly selective colleges, they are looking for quality not quantity. Significant leadership in a balance of activities including at least one athletic and non athletic activity. CAP, but no indication of Billy Mitchell or higher, which is considered significant leadership. Two very common activities are not mentioned- NHS membership is common to about two thirds of each service academy class and there is no mention of varsity athletic participation. There is a diminished chance of a male being admitted to the the Academy with no varsity athletic participation. About 95% of each class at the Air Force Academy, West Point and Annapolis have been varsity athletes with around 85% earning varsity letters and 2/3 have been athletic team captains. Up to around 35% of each class are recruited athletes.
The whole person score used by the service academies breaks down....
Academic Composite(60%) + Extracurricular Composite(20%) + Selection Panel(20%)

http://i53.tinypic.com/2ajcgfr.gif

[The Pie Chart on page 7 of the 2010-2011 Usafa Catalog has the same breakdown of the whole person score.]
Academic Composite = PAR + Sat/ Act
PAR = Prior Academic Record = Weighted GPA + Class Rank based on Weighted GPA, correcting for competitive level of high school based on percent of students continuing on to 4 year and 2 year colleges.

Also read all the Faq on the websites:

http://www.usna.edu/admissions/faq.htm

Understand the three rounds of competition in which an Appointment can be earned:
1) National Competition for an Loa(letter of assurance)

http://www.usna.edu/Admissions/steps10.h…

2) Competition within nominating sources
3) National Competition among wait listed candidates for declined offers of appointment, strictly according to whole person scores
Each Rep and Senator can have five Cadets he nominated and were charged off to him at Usafa at any point in time. For each vacancy due to graduation or otherwise, he can nominate ten candidates to compete for the appointment. Candidates he nominates who receive an Loa and accept an offer of appointment are not charged off to him as one of his five Cadets in residence. Without a nomination from some source, a Candidate cannot compete for an appointment beyond the first round competition for an Loa. With a nomination from any source, a candidate can compete within his nominating sources and then compete off the waitlist for declined offers of appontment. A further issue is that a Rep or Senator can:
1) Name a Principal Nomination and rank Alternate Nominations
2) Name a Principal Nomination and offer an unranked slate of Alternate Nominations
3) Name an unranked slate of Alternate Nominations
70% of Reps and Senators choose "3." For those who name a Principal or rank Alternates, as long as the Principal or highest ranked Alternate are triple qualified-scholastically,physically, medically- the whole person scores assigned by the Academy are irrelevant in the round of competition within Congressional Nominating Sources. Also the Congressional Liaison Office notifies the Rep or Senator of the Whole Person Scores of any applicants to him for a Nomination and also of any Loa's assigned to any applicants for a Nomination even before notifying the recipient of the Loa. Since Nominations are not due to the Academy till late January and Loa's are made in the Fall, the Rep or Senator knows the Whole Person Scores and of any Loa's assigned before announcing his Nominations. If you are still a Sophomore or Junior, suggest dropping some of those clubs/activities in which significant leadership is not being shown and join whatever sport you can where you have a good chance of earning a varsity letter and start practicing the CFA to be able to max it out by summer seminar. If the desire is to continue on to flight school, know that 50% of Usafa commissioned 2nd Lieutenants continue on to flight school and the service commitment is ten years from earning one's wings, which takes about two years. Just over 40% of Naval Academy commissioned Ensigns and Marine 2nd Lieutenants continue on to flight school and the service commitment is eight years from earning one's wings. Regarding the nominations for regular and reserve Airmen and Air Guard. The places are not exactly reserved. There is a maximum number of Appointments based on Secretary of the Air Force Nominations. Eighty to ninety percent of these Appointments are utilized for high school students recruited for athletics and other academy goals, who are then enlisted in the AF Reserves and placed on active duty on admission to the Prep School, and then if the Prep School year is completed are appointed based on a Secretary of the Air Force Nomination if a Nomination from some other source was not earned. These Appointments are extremely competitive for enlisted Airmen. It is the same at West Point and the Naval Academy. For the Usna Class of 2014, only 8% of the Appointments from the Naval Academy Prep School were prior enlisted Sailors and Marines and there were only 12 direct Appointments of Sailors and no direct Appointments of Marines.
Good Luck!
