New aircraft

For a quarter of a century already, ideas about creating a so-called hybrid aircraft have been hovering around the world, which, in its construction, will allow to combine the airship, the aircraft and the helicopter. Why do we need such a strange design, if all three of these types of aircraft can be used separately? And the thing is that back in the era of large Soviet construction projects there was a problem with the transportation of massive structures, which still had to be installed exactly in the agreed place. Indeed, in reality, an ordinary helicopter will not carry the multi-ton rig to the place of operation. Therefore, elements of the tower were delivered by rail, and then proceeded to assembly. It took a lot of time and resources, including financial ones. It was then that the Tyumen designers came up with the idea of ​​creating such an aircraft, which at relatively low speed could move through the air and carry the weight of a large mass.


New aircraft


Incidentally, such an idea, having been born first in the USSR, reached the United States. Already next year, the Americans plan to raise into the sky a giant “Aeroscraft” - both the plane and the airship at the same time. It can be stated that the Russian designers were ahead of the Americans in terms of implementing the idea of ​​a hybrid aircraft. After all, its “BARS”, namely the so-called hybrid, made the first flight over the Tyumen fields in the middle of the 90's. It turns out that the work has been done and our aircraft designers can rest on our laurels, however, as always, their work and talent cannot be appreciated. This is due primarily to total underfunding. The very “BARS”, in spite of its obvious merits, has not been put into mass production, therefore many of the tasks for the carriage of goods by air have not been solved until now.



Let us try to understand what the advantages of hybrid aircrafts are expressed in? The fact is that the design of the same “BARS” is a real integration of the elements of three aircraft at once. Its body is made of the same materials as the aircraft body, but in its central part there is a technological area with several screws. These screws allow for a strictly vertical movement of the hybrid machine. In addition, the aircraft is equipped with helium containers that implement the principle of flight of the airship and allow a hybrid on the ground to be rigidly fixed during unloading. The "BARS" and close to it models have elevators, as well as lateral tail, like a normal aircraft. This allows him to maneuver effectively in flight.



Many may notice that the airship could cope with the function of delivering large mass equipment to the agreed point, but the airship is much harder to manage and is influenced by the flow of air masses, which can easily lead to a catastrophe. And the airship can not effectively lower a large load - after the descent of a multi-ton design, the airship can take off uncontrollably, as if throwing a large ballast. A hybrid LA has no such disadvantages. In addition, such aircraft as “BARS” are equipped with an air cushion, which may allow it to fill a special capsule with water, and then use it to extinguish fires or irrigate fields.

If the Russian idea is wholly focused on civilian freight, then the Americans are planning to use their hybrid for military purposes. The Pentagon declares that it is already ready to acquire several Aeroscraft in order to use it to deliver warheads and contingent to remote areas in the future.



Of course, we should not say that hybrid aircrafts should be used as a passenger vehicle. For this purpose, the aircraft fit better, because the hybrid speed is not higher than 200 km / h. But in terms of effective provision of remote construction sites, transportation of large cargo through mountain ranges, extinguishing fires to these machines will not be equal. Note that the hybrid's carrying capacity is about 400 tons, which is 130 tons higher than the carrying capacity of the huge Mriya aircraft.

Let's hope that flying hybrids will soon begin to be delivered to various sectors of the Russian civil aviation.

      Well, the author wrote: "Let's hope" ... But hope is not harmful ...

      But in reality it will be like this: we will ask for our own, and after years 10 - 20 we will buy a French device and a license. Or so: we’ll build a couple of our own, then we will arrange competitive trials with some italian analogue, which will be worse in everything, take someone else's, forget yours. I don’t see other options nowadays ...

        Do not lose heart, do not despair on disbelief in the success of the business, you will not go far.

    Here, by the way, is an interesting historical project:

    We can’t arrange the production of ordinary civil aviation models, and we won’t give money from the budget about something new, uncracked ... I’m waiting
    if only private capital, but I doubt that choosing between a yacht and a promising aviation project will choose the latter ...
    Can the Chinese give money ...

    "In the United States, a flying car for 200 thousand dollars will appear on sale
    Read the full story: http://rbcdaily.ru/2011/07/08/cnews/562949980602990 "
    And the United States Congress and, most importantly, the progressively minded Obama squeezed budgetary money to launch mass production of such a thing that every American needs, and what's more, Terrafugia will transfer production to China! Joke of humor wink
    But seriously, whoever produces oil and gas from us, who needs those towers and equipment to haul? Well, let Gazprom, Lukoil, etc. and invested, and here is the budget? And besides, I say this, that the economic efficiency of the use of this ashtray is written with a pitchfork on water, the article already describes the load-carrying capacity in 400 tons, and in order to build an ashtray with such characteristics, many problems still need to be solved, my mother is not sorry after all, we are always guilty of “hand-guides”.

      There are problems, but do not forget how many have already been solved, at least within the framework of the implementation of the American Blimp program. There, the high efficiency of devices with partial or fully airship rigging has already been proven. And there is a colossal experience of the Germans.

    is it too early to talk about the BARS as a cargo delivery vehicle and fire extinguishing agent?
    Wright brothers machine could deliver much and far cargo?
    I’m not talking about fires
