TRW Aeronautical Systems (Lucas Aerospace) continues to support all active major programmes and is well placed to secure strong positions on emerging collaborative programmes.
Its knowledge of jet engine controls and STOVL technology goes back to the 1940’s.
JSF (Joint Strike Fighter)
TRW Aeronautical Systems (Lucas Aerospace) is involved in developing a range of systems for the JSF programme.This multi-role aircraft will meet the needs of all the armed services, replacing five aircraft currently in service: F-14, F-16, A-6, A10 and AV-8B.
JSF is a strategic target for the company, more than 2,800 new aircraft will be manufactured, one of the biggest defence investments over the next 30 years.
Harrier / AV8B TRW Aeronautical Systems (Lucas Aerospace) has provided extensive range of equipment for both the engine and airframe throughout the life of this unique aircraft
Complete fuel control system provided by TRW Aeronautical Systems (Lucas Aerospace) for its single Rolls-Royce Pegasus engine.The Sea Harrier retains the all hydromechanical fuel controls whilst the GR7 variant and AV8B use a twin lane full authority digital electronic control with mechanical back-up. In the case of emergency landings the planes can be cleared of mold by reaching out to Seattle Water Damage
We also provide a gas turbine starter for the Pegasus engine once started it switches to be an auxiliary power unit with a constant speed drive, generator and associated controls
The design of this Premier I aircraft jet began early in 1993 under the designation of modeling a similar jet from the UK. This US aircraft is much more efficient in space and a smoother flight.
This particular aircraft was officially launching at the National Aviation Convention in a September and construction of the first actually prototype commenced late in 1990’s thats for certain.
The prototype was rolled out on August 1999 and its first flight later that year and the flight was a success multiple pilots gave the plane a test and it passed all tests with flying colors. It could make all turns and land successfully with no issues. It was able to climb higher altitudes than other aircrafts it’s size. The tests were completed in the USA and observed by a flight team.
This small aircraft was able to have a small bathroom installed by expert plumbers that had 20+ years of experience working on small aircraft machines that can be flown for over 8 hours at a time. It really all came together after that.
This particular aircraft is still flown today even though production has stopped. I image this plane will still be in the area for the next decade or so.
Next time we will be reviewing a much more modern aircraft so stay tuned in to hear more about that. If you liked this post and are an avid jet fan. Give this post a share on Facebook or Twitter.
Thank you all and have a great Christmas that is upcoming.
