Aero-TV: Aerovate Innovates – A Passive Variable Pitch Prop

Aerovate's Kondor Shows Off A Unique Prop Technology

While at the 2014 Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) convention, ANN CEO and Editor-In-Chief, Jim Campbell came across something called a “passive variable pitch propeller.” Andrew Kondor, the president of Aerovate, Inc. accepted the task of explaining to Jim what it’s all about. He said it’s a propeller that changes pitch without the use of electronics or hydraulics. You’ll have to watch the video to get the full story, but Kondor explained it senses the load on the engine to make the adjustments in the propeller. The entire adjustment mechanism is part of the hub and when the prop is bolted to the aircraft it just starts to work... Sounds like black magic.

ANN's Daily Aero-Term (04.30.15): Kuiper Belt

Kuiper Belt A region in our outer solar system where many "short-period" comets originate. The orbits of short-period comets are less than 200 years. This region begins near Neptune’s orbit at 30 astronomical units (AU) and extends to about 50 AU away from the Sun. An astronomical unit is the average distance between Earth and the Sun. The Kuiper Belt may have as many as 100 million comets.

Aero-News: Quote Of The Day (03.30.15)

“EAA AirVenture creates unmatched opportunities for people to see aircraft in one place that you cannot see anywhere else in the world. It’s only fitting that on the B-52’s 60th anniversary of active military service that it comes to Oshkosh and, for the first time, will be on ground display for the world’s aviation enthusiasts to see up-close.” Source: Rick Larsen, EAA’s vice president of communities and member services, who coordinates AirVenture features and attractions, commenting on plans for the first-time attendance of the venerable B-52 Bomber at this year's massive AirVenture gathering.

Airborne 03.27.15: Cockpit Changes Announced, Maine v UAVs, NBAA v Santa Monica

The loss of Germanwings Flight 9525 due to what seems to be confirmed as case of the First Officer being alone in the cockpit, which facilitated his deliberately crashing the airplane, has already caused changes in the way some other European air carriers are managing cockpit disciplines. Norwegian Air Shuttle has decided to change its cockpit procedures so that two crew members always are present in the cockpit. There’s no getting around it, people are concerned about the issue of privacy when it comes to UAV operation. A bill introduced in the Maine legislature would make it a crime to fly a UAV over someone's property without their express permission. At a City Council meeting earlier this week more than 100 people attended to express their views for and against th

ANN's Daily Aero-Term (03.29.15): Comet

Comet A ball of rock and ice, often referred to as a “dirty snowball.” Typically a few kilometers in diameter, comets orbit the Sun in paths that either allow them to pass by the Sun only once or that repeatedly bring them through the solar system (as in the 76-year orbit of Halley's Comet). A comet’s “signature” long, glowing tail is formed when the Sun’s heat warms the coma or nucleus, which releases vapors into space.
