La Spagna taglia e, per ora, rinvia ulteriori acquisizioni .....
The Spanish air force has agreed with Airbus Defence & Space to acquire an initially reduced fleet of 14 A400M tactical transports until a funding solution can be found for the remaining 13 of the type Madrid has committed to buy.
Speaking at SMi's Military Airlift and Rapid Reaction Operations conference in Seville on 1 December, Maj Gen Pablo Jose Castillo of the air force’s air mobility command, said 14 A400Ms will be delivered to Spain by 2022 after which a decision will have to be made on how to proceed with the remainder of the acquisition – postponed until 2024.

Attacco a 'Quota 20' .....
The delivery of only 11 A400M transports by Airbus Defence & Space in 2015 has prompted group chief executive Tom Enders to vow a target of “20-plus” deliveries in 2016.
By Enders’ admission, the programme faced a challenging year, with the type being grounded after the crash of an aircraft destined for Turkey.
Additionally, customers are calling for a schedule and capability assessment on orders made, leading to a slower output than planned.
The original target for 2015 was approximately 13 aircraft.
“We delivered 11 A400M in 2015, and we cannot be satisfied with that level of delivery – we planned for more,” Enders told a press conference in London on 24 February.
“We still have some problems [with] that programme.

By all rights, the Airbus Defence & Space A400M should be a soar-away success story in both the ­domestic and export markets – but at the moment the programme is looking dangerously vulnerable.
Given its promised capabilities and the absence of any direct competitor – it slots neatly between the out-of-production Boeing C-17 and Lockheed Martin ­C-130J – the Atlas stood a very real chance of becoming Europe’s Hercules, if you pardon the mixed mythology.

FARNBOROUGH: Airbus battles to get A400M back on track .....

06 July, 2016 - By: Craig Hoyle - London

Airbus’s military transport aircraft unit will arrive at the Farnborough air show amid an unwelcome gearbox crisis linked to its poster-child A400M – a model for which adding promised tactical capabilities was already proving harder than expected.
In Flight International’s news report from the 2014 Farnborough show, the Atlas’s first year of operational service was summed up as marked by “solid reliability from its [Europrop International] TP400-D6 engines”.
Two years on, the project is in disarray, with a reliability issue affecting an engine power gearbox component currently requiring users to follow operating restrictions.
Airbus was from mid-June flight-testing an interim fix for the reliability issue, which concerns a component called an input pinion plug’ supplied by GE Aviation company Avio.
Inspections performed on operational aircraft following an uncommanded engine shutdown involving a UK Royal Air Force example early this year found cracking on some pins.
The issue concerned only gearboxes linked to the aircraft’s clockwise-turning propellers.
Gearbox inspections have since been required after every 200 flight hours, but the interim solution – expected to be certificated during the “summer period”, after 100h of on-wing testing – is likely to increase this interval to 600h.
For Airbus, the gearbox issue detracts from the wider performance of the TP400 turboprop.
Aircraft operating in a basic logistic transport standard have been performing well, the company says, and the Atlas has demonstrated an ability to carry a 25t payload some 500nm (925km) further than its contractual specification, laid down by launch nations Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Spain, Turkey and the UK.
By mid-June, Airbus had delivered 26 A400Ms, with France receiving nine, the UK eight, and Germany, Turkey and lone export customer Malaysia three each.
Further deliveries in 2016 will include a first unit for Spain, but the airframer is for now unable to say how many will be shipped in total, against a target of “20-plus” outlined earlier this year by Airbus Group chief executive Tom Enders.
With the company already having its own challenges during the production ramp-up – such as a now-resolved problem with the quality of fuselage production in Bremen, Germany – the need to divert some engines to customers from its final assembly line in Seville, Spain, is an added hurdle.
One bright spot came on 8 June, when the French air force accepted its first A400M in a new tactical transport standard, which adds ballistic protection, defensive aids system equipment and an airdrop clearance.
Paris expects to receive another two new aircraft prepared to this standard this year, and to have three of its in-service examples retrofitted.
The tactical advance is a significant step for Airbus Defence & Space, as it continues to talk to its customers via Europe’s OCCAR defence procurement agency about a new delivery schedule and associated penalty payments.
Airbus expects to reveal more when it makes its next financial results statement, but none of the programme’s launch nations is understood to have requested reducing the total number of aircraft, from an overall 174.
With Boeing’s C-17 now out of production, Airbus Defence & Space should have been in the driving seat for lucrative export orders.
Head of military aircraft Fernando Alonso says the company is holding firm on its projection of selling at least 200 A400Ms to other nations over the life of the programme.
It has by no means given up on its earlier ambition of further developing the Atlas for operation by the US military, but any further sales are unlikely until its current challenges have been overcome.
Thankfully for the company, the situation is more positive elsewhere within its product portfolio – especially with the A330 multi-role tanker transport (MRTT).
To date, Airbus has delivered 27 of the aircraft, to the UK (13), Saudi Arabia (6), Australia (5) and the United Arab Emirates (3).
A 14th and final example will be accepted under the UK’s Future Strategic Tanker Aircraft programme around the time of the show, and a further two (second-hand) aircraft are to be converted for Australia.
Other confirmed buyers are France, Singapore and South Korea, while contracts are pending for India and for a pooled fleet to be operated initially by Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Poland.
Once combined, these deals will increase the number of A330 tankers to 49, and Airbus thinks that, in all, deals for up to 85 could be made over the next 10 years.
Controversially, Airbus Defence & Space head of sales and marketing Jean-Pierre Talamoni contends that the US Department of Defense twice cancelling a selection of the A330 tanker for the US Air Force’s KC-X requirement has played into Airbus’s hands.
“The Americans made the greatest gift to us – selecting us and then deselecting us. It saved us a lot of money,” he notes.
But Boeing’s 767-based KC-46A will be a fierce opponent, once through its current development and flight-test challenges, which are reminiscent of its rival’s past problems with the MRTT.
Airbus recently achieved the power-on milestone for Singapore’s first MRTT, with this and future examples to benefit from continual investment in the widebody made by its commercial arm over the past several years.
This includes new avionics equipment, aerodynamic enhancements and an increased maximum take-off weight of 238t.
New technologies – such as an autonomous boom refuelling capability – are currently being researched, and customers are being offered more advanced communications equipment, and the ability to potentially undertake communications and electronic intelligence tasks from the platform.
Another of the company’s success stories of recent years is the C295 medium transport, which – despite encountering a recent dip in sales – appears poised to secure further business.
Discussions continue over a proposed 50-unit deal to replace the Indian air force’s vintage Avro HS 748s, with the C295 – to be produced with local partner Tata in accordance with New Delhi’s “Make in India” industrial policy.
Alonso says the company is “very optimistic” of completing the sales process.
Also nearing possible conclusion is a competition to replace the Royal Canadian Air Force’s de Havilland Canada DHC-6 Buffalos and some aged Lockheed Martin C-130s for a fixed-wing search-and-rescue requirement likely to require the provision of 16 or 17 aircraft.
Rivals include the Leonardo Alenia C-27J Spartan and Embraer’s KC-390.
Canada – it’s life or death for the Italians, who are trying to sell [the C-27J] at any price,” claims Talamoni.
Airbus has so far won orders for 168 C295s from 25 operators, with roles ranging from transport to maritime patrol, anti-submarine warfare and other special-mission roles.
FlightGlobal’s Fleets Analyzer database shows 144 of the type as in current active service.
Deliveries will continue this year for lead operator Egypt – which has received 21 from an eventual 24 – and Mali, and “there are a number of mature discussions for the C295, and some very good opportunities,” says Fernando Ciria, head of marketing, tactical airlifters & intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance.
The company earlier this year conducted a demonstration tour around Latin America using a Mexican-owned and winglet-equipped C295W, and in late June repeated the process in Canada and the USA.
With a firefighting adaptation nearing certification, a roll-on, roll-off tanker fit in flight-test, offers of a cannon-armed version and airborne early warning and control system variant, Airbus believes there is much life left in the design.
“There is still a lot that can be got out of the C295 – we have the capability to add new functions quickly,” Alonso says.
“At Farnborough, we will show new capabilities, and the timeframe when customers can get them.”
Noting that the company is in no hurry to develop a replacement, he adds: “We have a winner for the period before we get to a new product.”
For Airbus’s sake, he will be hoping that the same can soon also be said of the A400M.

Airbus da i numeri .....
Airbus’s continued difficulties with producing and delivering the A400M tactical transport have led it to announce a fresh charge of just over €1 billion ($1.1 billion) against the programme.
“Industrial efficiency and the step-wise introduction of the A400M’s military functionalities are still lagging behind schedule and remain challenging,” says Airbus Group chief executive Tom Enders.
Fonte ..... "Airbus takes fresh €1bn charge against A400M" .....

On the A400M programme, five aircraft were delivered in the first half of 2016.
The European Aviation Safety Agency certified an interim fix to the engine propeller gearbox (PGB) which, once available, will give air forces at least 650 flight hours before initial inspections of the affected parts of the PGB.
The first major development milestone of the mission capability roadmap defined with customers earlier this year was successfully completed in June with certification and delivery of ‘MSN 33’, the 9th aircraft for the French customer.
Industrial efficiency and military capability remain a challenge for the A400M programme.
Furthermore, the EASA’s Airworthiness Directive, linked to the PGB on the engine, and various PGB quality issues have strongly impacted the customer delivery programme.
Management has subsequently reviewed the programme evolution and estimated contract result incorporating the implications at this time of the revised engine programme and its associated recovery plan, technical issues related to the aluminium alloy used for some parts within the aircraft, recurring cost convergence issues and finally some delays, escalation and cost overruns in the development programme.
As a result of the review, including an updated assumption of export orders during the launch contract phase, Defence and Space recorded an additional net charge of € 1,026 million.
Commercial negotiations with OCCAR and the Nations are yet to take place with regard to the revised delivery schedule and its implications.
As of today, the outcome of these negotiations cannot be reliably estimated.
The potential impacts on the financial statements could be significant.

Altra domanda Capitolo gearbox:

quale rigido workflow segue lo sviluppo e la scelta di un motore per una piattaforma, che impedisce di cambiare totalmente rotta sostituendo il motore in toto con un altro modello, invece di obbligare ad ispezioni intermedie ravvicinate in attesa di una soluzione finale in questo caso per la gearbox dei motori clockwise?

Interessanti questi rimandi alla memoria :)

Comunque nessuno che mi sappia dire perché non si può come nel settore auto sostituire completamente il tipo di motore (stessa auto motori differenti) invece di impazzire a cercare una soluzione alla trasmissione?

Il motore viene espressamente progettato per l'aeromobile in questione o si "pesca" in progetti preesistenti?

semplice curiosità...

Nel caso dello A400M il motore è stato progettato proprio in funzione di tale aereo e, al momento, in Occidente non esistono altri motori che possano sostituirlo ..... a meno che non si decida di installare dei turbofan ..... ma, per quanto mi concerne, non so se la cosa sia tecnicamente realizzabile con facilità e senza dovervi investire somme ingentissime nonché affrontare ulteriori grossi ritardi .....

Oltre che per quanto ti ha già detto richelieu, cioè che il propulsore è stato progettato proprio esclusivamente per questa macchina, parlando in generale il mondo aeronautico non è come quello automobilistico. Sostituire un motore non è semplice, non basta prendere un motore e metterne un tipo nuovo, ma occorre anche modificare tutta l'interfaccia tra motore e aeromobile. Il tutto con costi elevatissimi, molti test da effettuare e la necessità di ricertificare il tutto.

Il Giappone propone al mercato il suo Kawasaki Heavy Industries C-2 .....

Immagine

Anche se, nell' articolo, l' aereo viene descritto soltanto come un potenziale successore del C-130 ..... le sue caratteristiche lo pongono in concorrenza anche allo A400M .....
Kawasaki Heavy Industries expects to deliver its second C-2 transport aircraft to the Japanese Air Self Defence Force (JASDF) in 2017.
The first aircraft is already in service with JASDF after being delivered in June, says a company representative.
He did not give firm numbers on the total to be delivered, but expects that Tokyo will need 20-40 examples of the airlifter to replace the nation’s fleet of C-1s.
Production could ramp up to 3-4 aircraft annually, but this is contingent on Tokyo’s defence budget.
He adds that the C-2, which is powered by a pair of General Electric CF6 turbofans, has a unique niche in the transport mission.
He says that the aircraft can fly 30t to just under 6,000km.
With Boeing’s cessation of the C-17 line, there is a dearth of strategic airlifters available at the high end.
He adds that several countries have expressed interest in the C-2.
One market the Kawasaki is interested in is the replacement of legacy Lockheed Martin C-130 aircraft.
“For countries that need to fly further with larger cargoes than with the C-130, the C-2 is a good option,” he says.
Però ..... con una considerevole limitazione ..... :scratch:
The airlifter can handle takeoffs and landings from short runways, but Tokyo did not require that it to be capable of use from rough fields, he says.

"Gli aerei sino ad ora consegnati non sono operativi" ..... il Ministro della Difesa francese Jean-Yves Le Drian senza peli sulla lingua .....

Immagine
French officials are in tough talks with Airbus Defense & Space for a timely delivery of a more capable “tactical” version of the A400M military transport plane, French Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said.
“The problem is the company,” Le Drian told the defense committee of the lower house National Assembly on Nov. 2, the official minutes of which were recently released.
Today, the A400Ms delivered are not operational – and the problem does not concern just France: that is the case everywhere.”
“As this meeting is public, perhaps my remarks will reach Mr. Enders. It can be said that the talks I have with the Airbus executives are … lively.”

Fra di loro .....
Airbus Defence & Space has carried out two test flights at its facility in Seville, Spain, to evaluate the air-to-air refuelling capabilities of its A400M strategic transport.
During the flights, 50 contacts between the two A400Ms were made in both level flight and during turns, using a hose-and-drum add-on kit that enables the Atlas to refuel large aircraft.

La Spagna ..... paese in cui è ospitata la linea di assemblaggio ..... riceve finalmente il suo primo A400M .....
Spain has taken delivery of its first Airbus Defence & Space A400M tactical transport, which will now be transitioned to its home operating base at Zaragoza in the northeast of the country.
Aircraft MSN44 carried out its maiden flight from Airbus’s Seville final assembly site in September, and is the first of 27 examples on order for Spain.
