USS Gerald R Ford

USS Gerald R Ford is the lead ship of her class of the United States Navy supercarriers. It is worth $13 billion and the most advanced aircraft carrier in the world due to its enormous flight deck and a new electromagnetic system to launch aircraft. The ship is able to hold more than 75 aircraft at a time because of its length of 1100 feet long. The warship can cruise at speeds of more than 30 knots and operate for 20 years without refueling, according to the Associated Press. It turned out to be the most expensive warship the US military has ever build since it manufacturing which started in 2005.

For the first time, on July 28th USS Gerald R Ford launched a nuclear-powered supercarrier and recovered a fighter plane using an electromagnetic catapult on the Piloted by Commander Jamie Struck, an F/A-18F Super Hornet was launched from the flight deck by the Electromagnetic Launch System and it landed using the Advanced Arresting Gear system.

The electromagnetic technology will be easier to maintain for sailor aboard the ship and will provide smoother acceleration for launch, putting less stress on aircraft air frames according to Navy Officials. It’s more reliable, easier to maintain, and has a higher launch energy capacity than previous system, however it’s complicated and requires a lot of crew to operate it and maintain it.

“AAG and EMALS have been successfully tested ashore at Lakehurst, New Jersey, but this is the first shipboard recovery and launch of a fleet fixed-wing aircraft," says Captain Rick McCormack, Ford's commanding officer.

Dassault’s UCAV project

Anglo-French is under speculation to continue their development on their latest project due to Europe’s current Brexit scandal. The production of the unmanned combat air vehicle (UCAV) is what is said to be at stake if companies do not decide to coincide.   Dassault, one of the main contributor to this project has stated to be very concerned to on the upcoming descions. 

Many companies are at a loss if the companies do not come to terms. Large companies such as Safran, Rolls Royce alongside their electronic components suppliers Thales and Leonardo. 

“France’s Dassault is partnered with UK-based BAE Systems under the future combat air system (FCAS) initiative agreed by the nations' governments in 2014 and reaffirmed in March 2016 at a summit in Amiens.” 

The relations began as a strong healthy partnership between the UK and the French when the Prime minister of the UK and the French president agreed to the second “stage” worth more over £1.54 billion ($1.87 billion US). 

With the scare of Brexit being imposed this year, the future of the production has not been as stable as before. France assures that they can and will take over the production if the UK decides to leave but may not be the right choice economically for their company.  

If the two companies come to terms and decided to pursue the project they will continue production immediately. The immediate production consists of the completion of two “full scale” prototypes. 

Per the Chief executive of Dassault, Eric Trappier he states that the prototypes would be a reassurance that the two companies have come to terms and can continue working together. The approximated flight launch for the new UCAVs would be around the year 2023.

Aeroplane Operations in Europe
The General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) welcomed the European Union (EU)’s acceptance of Commercial Air Transport (CAT) using Single-Engine Turbine aero planes at night or in Instrument Meteorological Conditions (SET-IMC) in Europe. Here at ASAP Semi we deal with many international customers. Having knowledge of projects going on around the world are great for us so that we can stock our inventory to accommodate orders that might be placed.  We are very knowledgeable of which parts go on specific airplanes and if not we have services to inform us.

The publication of these aero plane rules opens new markets and stands to improve connectivity across the continent. Europe is now aligned with the International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) standards for CAT operations. This publication also marks the end of a 20-year effort by manufacturing and regulators. These new guidelines and aero plane rules are based on demanding safety analysis, which in all contains the necessary safeguards to simplify this form of passenger transport via the General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA). It will greatly accelerate overnight cargo delivery and help provide efficient connectivity to Europe’s most remote regions. Beginning in the early 1990s, work on a regulatory framework for single-engine commercial operations is now common around the world. Such common operations that were issues in 2005 are based on ICAO standards. In 2012, GAMA, its several of the many association’s members, and EASA participated in a rulemaking group created to help develop the agency’s regulatory framework.

At Just Parts Unlimited we are constantly trying to find ways to build relationships across the world to make sure parts do not go to places they shouldn’t be going to. We want this world to be a safe place and with the regulations we have in place we try to avoid all situations that can affect us in the future. One reason why Just Parts Unlimited stands out from others is because it is not all about the money here, we don’t sell to anyone who is not approved and we make sure the parts work well.
