Winter gyro tests for MTR PLA passed in China

In China, winter trials of the promising Hunting Eagle amphibious gyroplane designed for the PLA special operations forces have been tested in winter. It is reported "NPlus1" citing the dambiev blog.


According to the publication, the development of gyroplanes in the interests of the army aviation The PLA and other power structures in China are engaged in the Chinese company Shaanxi Baoji Special Vehicles Manufacturing. The amphibious version of the new Hunting Eagle gyro was first introduced at the beginning of last year. The main purpose - the casting of fighters MTR PLA.

The autogyro amphibian is double, equipped with special floats for landing on water, but which on ice or snow can serve as skis. The weight of the aircraft is 290 kg, while the maximum payload mass is 230 kg. The gyroplane has a Rotax 914 engine with 115 horsepower. Cruising speed - 120 km / h, maximum - 160 km / h. The maximum flight range is 400 km, the ceiling is 4,5 thousand meters.


The device is equipped with an open two-seater cabin with landing fighters one after another. The payload mass allows you to transport two fighters with full combat gear.

    The Chinese are small, compact, there are three more Chinese on each ski there easily fit. ... yes

      Something like an airplane motorcycle. And what practical benefit from it, except for the price as for three snowmobiles or an SUV.

        The practical use is to fly over the front line unnoticed or land a group in hard-to-reach areas. A small example is to throw a sniper pair behind enemy lines without leaving any marks.

      And I think that it’s rather underestimated as ekranoplans and airships (although the latter were more fortunate - nevertheless, in a certain historical period they were used by everyone and massively).
      Any technique has its pros and cons. The question is to find a niche for her. Autogyros at the moment have this chance.

          in which place is the gyroplane underestimated, is it really that a screw rotating from the incoming flow is at least somewhat better than a fixed wing?

          The advantages of gyroplanes.
          Today the gyroplane is the safest means of transportation by air. It is easily controlled in all flight modes, including at zero speed. Even if the engine fails, the device can be fully controlled by planning for a suitable place for landing without additional mileage. The gyroplane can take off even in calm weather, from a platform whose diameter is only twice the diameter of the rotor itself. Maneuverability during flight and on turns, the absence of vibrations and stall, the presence of a wide range of horizontal flight speeds (from 25 to 185 km / h), a short take-off run (up to 50 m), all these indicators indicate a significant advantage of the gyroplane over other aircraft.
          For airplanes and helicopters, flying at low altitudes of 3-30 meters in the speed range of 30-120 km / h and headwind speeds of up to 20 m / s are considered dangerous, while the gyroplane in the same flight mode is completely safe. With skillful and prudent control of the gyroplane, the risk during the flight is minimized.
          Another advantage of gyroplanes is a wide view and much less vibration than in helicopters, which makes them very convenient for aerial photography, video shooting and surveillance.
          A comparative analysis of the characteristics of modern light aircraft (aircraft, helicopters, hang-gliders, gyroplanes, paragliders) allows us to distinguish the following advantages of gyroplanes:
          · Short take-off and landing;
          · Constructive simplicity, low labor input in manufacturing and operation;
          · The ability to perform the apparatus in the class of ultralight, light or medium aircraft with a closed cabin;
          High weight return (0,4 ... 0,65);
          · Flight safety - in the event of an engine stop in flight, as well as in case of loss of speed, the gyroplane does not enter into a tailspin;
          · Efficiency - hourly fuel consumption is comparable to that of light aircraft and hang-gliders, and significantly lower than that of helicopters. The average cost of gyroplanes is ~ 10 (!) Times lower than the cost of helicopters, about 2 times lower than the cost of aircraft and is commensurate with the cost of delta flights. The cost of one flight hour of operation of the gyroplane does not exceed that of a light aircraft and hang-glider.

          And this is still long away not all (I just don’t want to give out a perfect sheet of text). But somehow. Briefly summarized - it is very safe and brutally cheap and economical to operate (and not only that).

              As anyone.
              Autogyros are economically much more profitable than helicopters (helicopters), due to the low cost of the device itself and its not expensive maintenance, comparable to the cost of maintaining an ordinary car. This puts gyroplanes out of competition with other types of aircraft.

              Autogyros are a reliable mode of transport for fast movement in the air. All over the world gyroplanes are used for expeditions, hunting, fishing, sightseeing flights, and advertising. The heated and ventilated cabin allows you to make comfortable flights even at a temperature of -20 ° C on the ground, and night vision equipment (option), allows you to navigate in space at night without the use of landing lights. It is possible to place additional equipment for air reporting in real time

              Perfectly proved themselves when used for patrolling by police and security services of various departments. In many countries, it is armed with police, rescue services and other law enforcement agencies.

              By the way, the pepelats from the cult film Kin-Dza-Dza is a clear gyroplane. ^ _ ^

                  And in general, compare a car with a motor with glider, which initially has NO propulsion of its own? Is it even possible, sorry?

            If you apply the preliminary rotation of the rotor from the engine, then take-off, almost without a take-off.

          Worse. Even worse than a trike. But more compact. In aviation, scale is an insidious thing. The notorious square-cubes rule applies. Something changes in proportion to the scale, something to a square or cube of scale. Strength, mass, wing area, Reynolds number ... etc.
          And an interesting thing happens - solutions that are effective on small structures are far from optimal on large ones. An example - a motor-hang glider has a bad wing of bad quality. But a huge area with low weight. And he calmly comes off with consumptive engines, unlike airplanes. The small Su-26 has a destructive overload of -23. Count "Ruslan" to such a one; he will not tear himself away from the strip.
          Here the same thing - just a trifle gives a niche to the gyroplane. Making it bigger will no longer be profitable.

      Successfully combines the flaws of an airplane and a helicopter. Take-off and landing (without prior promotion), like a light aircraft with powerful wing mechanization, and aerodynamic quality is bad, like a helicopter (i.e. range and economy) With miniature designs
      such as this, they fade into the background, and simplicity, cheapness and reliability of the structure climb forward. Small to build it makes sense, a little more - no longer. It’s like with a motor hang glider.

Aircraft carrier “successfully” combines the shortcomings of a small (and, of course, dangerous for landing) airfield and an expensive, fragile, explosive floating barge (cost-effective? I haven’t heard it), the tank “successfully” combines the shortcomings of a half-blind tractor and the limitations of the cannon guns - and te de, the list goes on ...

          It does not stop this, but expediency. Nobody needs a big gyroplane. Just like no one in their right mind will build
          quadrocopter heavier than hundreds of kg. An increase in scale will change the weight-strength ratio, the load on the swept area, the speed and the required lane (or transmission complexity) will increase - and that’s all, cranks. Bad helicopter or bad plane. Who needs it.
