yard Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC), Kuala Lumpur end of April visitors swarmed to see a fighter plane on display there.
People who saw the aircraft come rushing to enter the space shuttle’s cockpit tub to experience a fighter pilot.
Aircraft Eurofighter Typhoon is just a replica, but the actual size. Although it’s not true, a crane had to be used to place the replica.It is not possible on behalf of BAE Systems, the company responsible for building the aircraft was carrying a real Typhoon. It is very expensive and there is no space wide platform for landing. Typhoon aircraft replica is on display there to join the Defence Services Asia Exhibition (DSA) of the 13th, held twice a year.
If you look from the outside, most people think it is the same as other fighters, but when compared in detail a lot of difference.
original materials used in the manufacture of carbon fiber and the Typhoon is not a frame. It is very different from the other aircraft before the use of iron and should be made first frame.According to the Head of Export Typhoon, BAE Systems, Ian Malin, the material selection can reduce the overall weight of the aircraft up to 45 percent compared to the use of other material the same size.
“In addition to light, carbon fiber is very strong in receiving shock or momentum,” said Ian, when met in Kuala Lumpur recently.
Measuring 16 meters in length , five meters high and over 11 meter wing, Typhoon has its rugged engine and equipped with electronic devices.
A fighter should be easy to do a lot of movement against commercial aircraft flying on one-way movement especially when in high-speed battle.
Control computer system in the Typhoon cockpit environment designed to harmonize the oxygen system and suite-g to provide comfort to the pilot.
Sut-g is a dress worn by fighter pilots to put pressure on the abdomen and legs to slow down the paint.
-g suits specially designed for driver Typhoon will provide compression to the chest pilots in response response to the strong gravitational force resulting from a plane change lanes.
When compression, enough air is forced into the lungs at the right pressure to the pilot able to breathe normally.-g suits design the right people is important because nine times the gravitational pressure can cause the pilot unconscious. If-g suits commonly used already, the pilot is difficult to be conscious during the flight. For pilots who do not wear any protection while in the aircraft that can reach super sonic speeds, the blood can continue boil.
-g Suit Typhoon also has a temperature control system to ensure that the pilots body temperature in the optimum conditions to give the maximum concentration.
All these features allow Typhoon flown at all either the high or low altitudes and in hot weather membahang in the desert.
In terms of handling technology, the Typhoon has a Quadro Plex system that can optimize the operation of the aircraft in addition to making it more easy to fly. It also comes with Avionic systems.Avionic System is an electronic system in an aircraft. It covers technology, radar, infra red and defense. First developed in the mid 90′s, Typhoon has a total of 300 units are in space and is owned by six countries, namely Germany, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom, Austria and Saudi Arabia.
More than 400 of Typhoon longer being manufactured in Europe, while Malaysia has ordered the 18 Typhoon for the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF).
Typhoon is a program involving four countries namely United Kingdom, Germany, Italy and Spain.
Aircraft that they meet the four criteria as a jet fighter required by the all manufacturers Typhoon.
“For example, there are countries that have criteria can act as defense aircraft only but, some want it to be attacked.
” Some countries want both The features found on the jets. So, the Typhoon is an aircraft that meets all specifications, “explains Ian again.Eurofighter Typhoon is a design that combines lightweight materials and power and precise design and precision. It can fly at an altitude of 6.4 kilometers higher than passenger planes. Having the weight of 15.880 kilograms, two Typhoon EUROJET engine can produce thrust of approximately 18.140 pounds. Pilots can stop the aircraft which is in the speed of Mach 1.4 within 2.5 minutes only between a distance of 10 kilometers.
mach number is the comparison between the speed of fighter aircraft and the speed of sound. In short, the Typhoon can glide at high altitude with a speed twice the speed of sound.Life expectancy of European-made aircraft to enable it to operate satisfactorily for a period of 30 to 40 years. conflict Libya
When the conflict Libya in March 2011, Typhoon fighter aircraft services were used by British Royal Air Force (RAF) to attack the country to quell the revolt.
From the feedback received by the RAF pilots, very comfortable and Typhoon aircraft design enables it to serve 100 percent during the attack.
According to BAE Systems Chief Test Pilot, Mark Bowman, of the RAF pilots who operate outside the country, said that Typhoon are high up to 98 percent. It’s something unusual.“machine (Typhoon) has proven excellence in Libya during a conflict. In addition to world attention, capacity and capability of Typhoon performance commensurate with the cost recognized, “said Mark via e-mail received Kosmo!
Storytelling on Typhoon aircraft flying experience, Mark believes that it will not fail to arouse admiration within pilots, especially to those who have a lot of driving fighter.
Mark has become a fighter pilot over 30 years. He described the experience of flying aircraft is an experience full of excitement to be able to practice their skills and fighting skills.In addition, he is able to enhance decision-making when assessing the fighting. ” We do not get paid a lot of like Formula One driver. But, money is not everything because not everyone can feel driving at high speed every day, “says Mark again.
