Evolution Turbine

 

Turboprop power, efficiency and simplicity.

What’s a Turboprop? It is a jet turbine engine that drives a propeller. Jet engines are simple machines, with few moving parts. They convert kerosene into power and speed, and they do it very reliably. The smile on your face is a bonus. The Pratt & Whitney PT6 turboprop engine is iconic, probably the most famous turboprop engine of them all. There are more than 50 variations of this engine and it powers more different types than any other. The Evolution uses the 750 hp. PT6-135A.

Himeji-jo is the finest surviving example of early 17th-century Japanese castle architecture, comprising 83 buildings with highly developed systems of defence and ingenious protection devices dating from the beginning of the Shogun period. It is a masterpiece of construction in wood, combining function with aesthetic appeal, both in its elegant appearance unified by the white plastered earthen walls and in the subtlety of the relationships between the building masses and the multiple roof layers.

Breakthrough Engineering

The Citation X+ has an advanced flight deck is powered by the Garmin® G5000™ avionics suite. With touch-screen controllers, the flight department can customize how data is presented, see dimensional terrain renderings, read precise weather patterns and see traffic from miles away.

Intuitive Control

Four intuitive, full-color, touch-screen LCD control panels serve as the crew’s primary user interface, replacing old-fashioned knobs, buttons and switches. Pilots are presented with triple 14-inch landscape WXGA high-resolution displays. Each all-purpose display can function independently as a primary flight display or multifunction display. These displays can also function in multi-pane mode, showing both PFD and MFD side by side on the same screen.

True-to-life Visualization

Garmin’s Synthetic Vision Technology offers a virtual reality view of terrain such as water and land surfaces, obstacles, traffic and runways. Using the system’s terrain-alerting database, SVT enhances pilot’s situational awareness by creating a dimensional rendering of terrain features, obstacles and traffic in proximity to the aircraft. Pilots get a realistic picture of everything beyond the widescreen, even in solid IFR or nighttime VFR conditions. On the secondary display, MFD capabilities can be divided into two vertical pages. This allows logical pairing of whatever information is needed during any particular point in the flight sequence.

737 MAX Efficiency delivers 8% lower operating costs than its main competitor. The new 737 MAX Advanced Technology winglet increases fuel efficiency by 1.8%. 

737 MAX Reliability – the benefit of 99.7% dispatch reliability is that an airline with a fleet of 100 737 MAXs will avoid delaying over 65,000 passengers. 

737 MAX Passenger Appeal is found in the new Boeing Sky Interior, which dramatically elevates the passenger experience. 

Better environmental performance. The superior fuel efficiency of the 737 MAX reduces carbon emissions. The quieter 737 MAX has a 40% smaller noise footprint than today’s single-aisle airplanes.

 

 

Bangalore Aviation’s photo editor Vedant, was given a tour of Boeing’s new 737 MAX which is designed to compete with the new A320neo from Airbus. The MAX features new LEAP engines from CFM, a digital flight deck that derives inputs from its big brother the 787 Dreamliner, split wing-tips, and a host of other new features.
