Wave Engine ignites aviation buzz after successful UAV test flight

Wave Engine Corp has aced a demonstration flight of a simple jet engine with no moving parts. A modern version of a pulsejet, the J-1 engine powered a UAV through take-off and several mid-air stop/starts before the aircraft nailed the landing.The Wave Engine is an evolution of the pulsejet engine, a simple jet propulsion device where air is fed into a chamber and fuel introduced. This is ignited to produce a fireball that forces high-pressure heated gasses down a tube and out of the tailpipe, creating thrust. As this…

10 years after the lost Malaysia Airlines flight, satellite tech remai

This month marks 10 years since the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 (MH370), perhaps the best-known continued aviation vanishment since Amelia Earhart in the 1930s. That a Boeing 777—which carries up to several hundred people and, in 2014, cost in excess of a quarter-billion dollars—was able to completely drop off all satellite feeds and communications channels (and by manual settings in the cockpit) was astounding 10 years ago.  As that situation unfolded, Fast Company built a model that analyzed its most…

Can Loft Dynamics’ VR Flight Simulator solve America’s pilot shortage?

It’s a clear day in Zermatt, a remote Swiss town anchored in a sharp valley under the gaze of the Matterhorn. We’ve taken off from Air Zermatt, home to some of the best high-altitude rescue pilots in the world. I’d flown in helicopters before but never piloted one. And this location was hardly a beginner course.“Are you ready to take the reins?” the controller asks.“Um, I think . . .?” I said nervously.“In three, two, one . . .” And with that, the full power of the craft shifts to my command. The controls are exquisitely…

Denver’s Drone Express could start making drone deliveries soon

Zipping around the city by personal jet pack is still just a dream, but a drone humming along to drop off groceries, prescriptions or a late-night pizza at your door could become a reality in the Denver area as soon as late spring. Drone Express, which moved its headquarters to Denver in November, is one of a handful of companies to earn a spot in the Federal Aviation Administration program focused on incorporating drones into the national airspace and authorizing their use for commercial services. Within the next few…

Studying flight paths and neighborhoods could lead to more considerate aviation

Clarke compared the noise emissions from low altitude aircraft to that of cars in three case studies using three types of electric vertical take-off and landing vehicles, or EVTOLs, that are popular with aircraft design companies: stopped-rotor aircraft, tilt-rotor aircraft, and a hexacopter.
