GE Aviation announces first run of the Advanced Turboprop engine

GE Aviation’s Advanced Turboprop engine, the first clean-sheet turboprop engine to hit the Business and General Aviation (BGA) market in more than 30 years, successfully completed its first engine test run at GE Aviation’s facility in Prague, Czech Republic, on Friday (December 22).
“Running the Advanced Turboprop engine this year was our biggest and most important goal,” said Brad Mottier, vice president and general manager of GE Aviation's BGA and Integrated Systems organization. “This milestone comes as a result of two years of tremendous effort by a worldwide team. We’re developing a real catalyst for the BGA market and we’re executing on plan. The integration of proven technologies has expedited the design, development and certification cycle of the engine.”
The Advanced Turboprop engine will begin certification testing in 2018. The engine will power Textron Aviation’s new Cessna Denali, which is expected to fly in late 2018. By the time the Denali enters into service, the engine will have completed more than 2000 hours of testing.

Czech participation at the MAKS 2017

Supported by the Ministry of Industry and Trade the Czech Aerospace Industry took part at the MAKS, International Aviation and Space Salon held at the Ramenskoye Airfield in Zhukovsky. The official Czech participation enabled the Czech aerospace companies to present themselves as an inseparable part of key Czech industries and to demonstrate their still retained ability to design, develop and manufacture complete aircraft. This has been proved by flight demonstrations of the significantly modernized L 410 NG aircraft from the Aircraft Industries Company.

Innovative TP 100 Engine wins "Enterpreneurial Project of the Year"

První brněnská strojírna Velká Bíteš a. s., the renowned manufacturer of high-speed turbine machinery for the aerospace, power and transportation industries, has won a contest entitled Podnikatelský projekt roku 2014 (Entrepreneurial Project of the Year for 2014). It was awarded first place in the Innovation category for innovating production of the TP 100 turboprop engine for aviation.

The Entrepreneurial Project of the Year contest, organized annually by CzechInvest in cooperation with the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Czech Republic, evaluates the best investor projects financially supported by EU structural funds and the state budget. The Minister for Industry and Trade, Jan Mládek, took personal patronage of the event.
The project pertaining to První brněnská strojírna Velká Bíteš (PBS) was praised by the jury, made up of representatives from the CzechInvest business development agency, the Ministry of Industry and Trade and evaluators from a group of experts. The assessors particularly took into account the fact that PBS, with the help of European subsidies, had put its own prototype of the TP 100 turboprop engine for aviation into production. The CEO of PBS, Milan Macholán (Ing.), said that: "We are incredibly grateful for this award, which recognises our research endeavours supported by EU structural funds and the Czech national budget; it is for us, and I believe also for other Czech entrepreneurs, an incentive to go ahead and make further efforts and progress. It is our belief that the TP 100 engine shall find widespread adoption worldwide, and this prize will be of great help to this end".
The TP 100 is a turboprop engine boasting an output of 180 kW and a total weight of 61.6 kg. It is based on the proven TJ 100 turbojet engine, which in this configuration acts like a gas generator, driving the free turbine and – via the propeller gear – a three-blade propeller at a constant speed (2158 rpm). It is mounted in piloted aircraft with 1-4 seats and unmanned aerial vehicles.
The opinion of the CEO of CzechInvest, Karel Kučera, is that investor projects for Czech entrepreneurs deserve support, as they bring about improvement in the quality of products and ensure success. "Therefore, over 132 billion crowns have been allocated for similar projects in the new Operational Programme Enterprise and Innovation for Competitiveness," he stated.

PBS is a comprehensive engineering manufacturer that designs and produces aerospace technology and provides precision castings, hi-tech machining of metals, galvanic coatings and the assembly of machines.

VTP UNIS (Science and Technology Park UNIS) Grand Opening

A BUSINESS INCUBATOR OF THE FUTURE – a hatchery of new projects including but not limited to the Avionics branch

A unique project, the UNIS Science and Technology Park (VTP UNIS), was successfully launched in the summer of 2015 in Brno.
Helping start-up companies, the VTP is ready to provide offices equipped with the latest technology as well as state-of-the-art test laboratory services for equipment including but not limited to the Avionics branch.
The building, thanks to its complex and precise architectural design, offers a total net internal area of 9.500 m². The total capacity is 380 working spaces.

Modern laboratories and offices
The VTP UNIS consists of two buildings providing renters with a conference hall, a training office on each floor and high-tech offices.
The renters can take advantage of the Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Test laboratory and the Mechanical Resistance and Climatic Test laboratory. Moreover, as the only test laboratory in the Czech Republic it offers a HALT /HASS chamber. HALT (Highly Accelerated Life Tests) enable to detect weak points of the design in the course of the development with the aim to increase product reliability and to find its operational and destructive limits. HASS (Highly Accelerated Stress Screen) Tests allow defect detection during the production phase, decreasing appliance failure rates in normal operation.

From the design up to the final product
The renters can use a mechanical workshop. The workshop is equipped with SW for the design and 3D modelling of mechanical constructions, with complete equipment for the production as well as testing of the designed units.
The workshop is equipped with a CNC milling machine, a 3D printer and a 3D coordinate measuring machine.
Last but not least, we offer prototype and small-series production of electric devices, including PCB population, assembly and product testing (manual or automated). Customers can also make use of a dry box for the long-term storage of electrical components.
