Story of the only Romanian Passenger Aircraft



Story of the only Romanian Passenger Aircraft

ROMBAC 1-11 is the first reactive passenger plane built in Romania. It was built at the Bucharest Aircraft Company , after the English BAC 1-11 courier license.

The first aircraft was completed in August 1982 and was presented to the press and to the Romanian officials on 27 August 1982.

The first official flight to present the state aircraft was executed on September 20, 1982, at Baneasa Airport.

The inaugural passenger flight of ROMBAC 1-11 (YR-BRA) took place on January 28, 1983, on the Bucharest-Timisoara route, and the first external flight of this aircraft was made on 23 March 1983 on Bucharest-London.

Prior to 1989, the Bucharest Aircraft Factory, today's Romaero Baneasa, built 9 such vehicles (plus two unfinished ones), finding the only commercial airplane with a reaction in the communist Europe, except for the USSR. All of them were bought by Tarom, which exploited them incompletely because they were denied access to western airports because of the high noise level. The ROMBAC project envisaged the construction of a total of 80 aircraft.

 The ROMBAC 1-11 is an airplane equipped with two Rolls-Royce Spey Mk 512-14DW turbochargers, capable of a pushing force of about 6,000 kgf. It has a maximum takeoff weight of 47,400 kgf and can transport at speeds of 870 km / h to almost 3,500 km maximum 119 passengers with a two-pilot crew.

Two versions, 475 and 560, were constructed, corresponding to BAC 111-475 and 111-500.

Romania was the only communist country to produce passenger planes after the USSR. He also tried Poland under Soviet license, but failed to build a plane without technical problems.

Nearly 33 years after YR-BRA, the first ROMBAC 1-11 manufactured in Romania, on the gates of the Romaero plant, Aeronews will tell where the 9 airplanes produced and the state they were in. A text by Rares Mandu.

August 27, 1982. One of the most important days for the Romanian aeronautics industry. On that day, the first passenger plane manufactured in Romania, registered with YR-BRA, was on the doors of the ROMAERO plant. The ROMBAC project planned to build 80 aircraft, but - unfortunately - only 9 were produced. Now, almost 33 years after the launch of this plane, Aeronews.ro will tell you where ROMBAC 1-11 aircraft arrived in Romania and the state they were in.

Air giant crossing the ocean using cooking oil

Air giant crossing the ocean using cooking oil


 KLM representatives say the Dutch operator was the first global airline to fly a biofuel trade in 2011.

Biokerosen is made from cooking oil in restaurants, the procedure based only on recycling of burned oil. It does not seem to affect the quality of the flights, but has the advantage of reducing carbon emissions by up to 80%.

In 2011, the Dutch company made its first flight with a biokerosen fueled airplane produced from recycled oil between Amsterdam and Paris and in 2012 made the first intercontinental flight to Rio de Janeiro, marking the longest flight made by airplane biofuel.

Starting in 2013, KLM has started to use 75% of its fuel for airplanes for its transatlantic flights and 25% for cooking oil, according to the BBC.

KLM recorded a record of 34.1 million passengers in 2018, offering its passengers direct flights to 162 destinations with a modern fleet of over 214 aircraft. The airline has over 33,000 employees worldwide.

Dutch airline KLM announced it will finance a new aeronautical project that could change the aviation industry.
It's a new V-shaped aircraft, created by experts from the Technical University of Delft, the Netherlands, and financially supported by KLM.

"Flying-V" can carry up to 314 passengers and was named after the famous Gibson Flying-V electric guitar, used by artists such as Eddie Van Halen or Jimi Hendrix.

Creators say that due to the unique configuration, the new aircraft uses 20% less fuel than the classic planes, so they will considerably reduce carbon monoxide emissions. The wings could accommodate passengerscargo and other loads.

The size of the new airplane is similar to an Airbus A350 or Boeing 787 and could use existing gates, hangars and tracks.

Rolls Royce wants to build a flying taxi
Rolls Royce car maker is working on a flying taxi system that could be deployed at the earliest in the next 10 years, the company said.

The British company claims it has already made plans for a vehicle that can take off vertically and can accommodate 4-5 people, called EVTOL, according to the BBC .

The vehicle could reach speeds of 402 km / h, being able to travel 800 kilometers without refueling. Thus, Rolls Royce joins several companies already working on their own versions of the Flying Taxi.

Rob Watson, chief of Rolls Royce's Electric Department, said: "We are in a position to play a leading role in the emerging world of air transport, and we will also be looking to work with more partners."

Flying cars have long been a science fiction, but aviation and technology companies are working hard to turn them into reality. Airbus, Uber and several start-ups, one of which was funded by the Google co-founder Larry Page - Kitty Hawk - all of them have announced such projects.

British manufacturer Rolls Royce initially confessed that the EVTOL concept used gas turbine technology to power 6 electric propellers, specially designed to be noisy.

The wings of the vehicle could rotate 90 degrees, allowing it to take off or land vertically. The car can also use heliports or airports.

The company has promised to degrade more details soon.

MH370 flight was deliberately crashed




MH370 flight was deliberately crashed

Aviation expert Larry Vance revealed in the 60 Minutes show that the flap discovered a year ago on Madagascar Island and belonging to Malaysia Airlines indicates a bleak hypothesis.

According to him, the experts' analysis indicates that the MH370 flight would have been crashed in the water because the flap was stretched out, reported The Guardian .


Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 - Wikipedia
Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 (MH370/MAS370) was a scheduled international passenger flight that disappeared on 8 March 2014 while flying from Kuala Lumpur ...

Vance thinks that no other theory can provide a plausible explanation of what would have happened to the missing plane in March 2014.

"Someone piloted the plane directly into the water ," he said in the 60 Minutes show, where he argued that the stretched flap is "concrete evidence" that the plane would have been intentionally collapsed, which would explain why it was not yet found wreck.

'A flaperon can not activate himself, someone must have taken him out. Someone (in the cabin) must have selected the flaperon activation command, "said Vance, which reinforces the hypothesis that one of the pilots or an air pirate controlled the plane until it collapsed in the ocean.

Peter Foley, head of the search operations by the Australian Transport Security Authority (ATSB), does not exclude the possibility that someone has controlled the plane to the end. the Australian high-ranking official said the ATSB saw 'some French analyzes' suggesting that the flapper was activated, which would support the theory that the collapse of the plane was premeditated.

Search operations started from the premise that the plane's disappearance was not the result of a premeditated move. But so far, the most costly search in history has not produced any results. Several pieces that are supposed to belong to the missing Boeing were found on the islands of eastern Africa.

Recently, the investigators unannounced a key detail of the investigation. In the captain's home that piloted the Malausia Airlines, a flight simulator was discovered in which the pilot would apply a similar scenario a month before disappearance, and would be astonished in the Indian Ocean.

Meanwhile, the governments of Malaysia, Australia and China withdrew their commitment to complement the search on the 120,000 square meter range.

They said that in the absence of new credible evidence regarding the exact location of the airplane, the search would be temporarily suspended.

Airlines with the most delays and most punctual airports




In 2017, airline passengers should have received millions of euros in compensation due to delays or cancellation, and flights to Turkey have a record of these chapters.

AirHelp, the world leader in compensation for airline passengers, identified throughout 2017 over 42,000 Romanian passengers eligible for compensation from airlines. If they applied for compensation, as they were entitled, the compensation would amount to approximately EUR 12 million.      Due to the large number of delays and / or cancellations, Turkey was the most problematic destination for Romanian passengers in 2017. Most delayed, canceled or overbooked flights are on the Bucharest-Istanbul (Ataturk Airport) route. More specifically, last year, 621 flights recorded a cumulative delay of 14,134 minutes, equivalent to about 10 days. Out of over 152,000 flights are operated annually, of which more than 36,000 have been delayed or canceled.   The most crowded month for Romania in 2017 was November. After the large number of delayed or canceled external flights, the most problematic destinations were Istanbul (Turkey), Vienna (Austria) and Munich (Germany).    The internal route with the highest delays or cancellations was Timişoara-Bucharest , with 17%.   Romania, at the middle of the ranking with the biggest flight delays. Tarom and Ryanair among the weakest performances   Compared to airports such as Singapore Changi, which has the best references, or London Gatwick, The recorded performances place them in the middle of the leaderboard.

The AirHelp rankings, which track the punctuality, services, and claim processing rate, show that Tarom and Ryanair have the weakest performance.   "Year 2017 was very exciting for airline passengers. Let's recall the wave of races canceled by TAP Portugal in August and September, when passengers were not only picked up for a few days in a row, but did not receive any information regarding the status of their trip. Immediately after cancellations of Ryanair flights, which also affected passengers. What many of them forget is that in the event of flight delays of more than three hours or cancellation of flights, they are entitled to compensation from airlines, which can reach up to 600 euros. However, although it is their right, less than 2% of passengers apply for compensation. We recommend that passengers who have been affected by delays or cancellations of flights in 2017 should read their rights and ensure that they do not waive the compensation they are entitled to receive. The AirHelp mission is to help passengers get their compensation. Airline passengers who have been delayed or canceled can check their eligibility for compensation in the AirHelp free app, available for iOS and Android, or on the AirHelp site. The whole process does not take more than a few minutes.

Airlines should pay compensation if flights are cancelled

FlightStats Global Cancellations and Delays
The global flight cancellation and delay tracker from flightstats.com is the most trusted and comprehensive day-of-travel snapshot.

The case was brought before the Court of Justice of the European Union by a couple from Holland, whose flight from Quito, Ecuador, to Amsterdam, suffered a delay of 29 hours.

The airline refused to pay compensation on the ground that unforeseen technical problems that have imposed this delay constitutes exceptional circumstances.

According to EU legislationair carriers do not have to pay compensation if the cancellation or postponement of flights is caused by "exceptional circumstances", such as bad weather, strikes or political instability, which can not be avoided even if all reasonable measures should be taken.

In his defense, the airline said that those two components defects that caused the delay have not exceeded their term average operational and their producer did not provide any specific information, according to which might seem fault when the equipment reaches a certain lifespan.

In reasoning the ECJ pointed out that although the technical problems could be exceptional circumstances, for example if those caused by acts of sabotage or terrorism, the same is not true for problems that occur during maintenance the airplane or on grounds of non maintenance operations.

"In the course of an airlineunexpected events inherent in the normal exercise of the activity of a company, given that carriers face regularly unexpected technical. No component of an aircraft does not last forever," says CJ.

Consumer associations have welcomed the ECJ because it provides greater clarity on what constitutes "exceptional circumstances", adding that airlines often offered this reason to refuse to provide compensation in case of technical problems.

Airports in JapanRussiaFinland and the US have proven the performance after analysis by OAG, because they have the fewest recorded last year delayed flights. OAG report reviewed airports divided into three categories: small, medium and large, based on the number of seats sold annually, notes the Daily Mail. Thus, a small airport category fewer than 10 million people sold annually, a model of punctuality in this category Itami airport in Osaka Japan with a rating of 93.85%. The analysis was based on the flights should take off or arrive within 15 minutes of the scheduled departure or arrival announced. In the category of medium airports at Copenhagen was ranked first with a rating of 88.53% of flights arrived on time in 2015. Regarding major airports of the world, Tokyo Haneda from Japan included this year in the first position of the ranking, with 91.25% of flights timed departure and destination announced.

Travel compensation and how to claim them

Affected passengers are entitled to compensation up to 600 euros per person if their flight had a delay of more than 3 hours, was canceled or overbooked. Tourists can apply for and obtain compensation even if the airline offers them another flight to the destination where they have to arrive, vouchers for food and drink and / or accommodation.

The right to compensation for flights delayed, canceled or overbooked by an airline or low-cost airline is regulated by the European Union by Regulation (EC) 261/2004. The condition is that the passenger leaves the European Union with any airline or arrives in the European Union with an airline registered in the EU (or IcelandNorway or Switzerland). For example, an American citizen flying from the US or Africa to an EU destination with a company like Air France or Lufthansa is entitled to compensation if his flight is affected by delays, cancellations or overbookings.

However, affected passengers may only be eligible for compensation under the following conditions:

Flights take delays of at least three hours
It is the fault of the airline (eg an aircraft has been damaged).
It is not a cause for compensation for weather conditions, bad weather, political disturbances, terrorist attacks.
The airline refuses to board the passenger

Also, according to European Directive 261/2004, if a flight has several stopovers, the delay in one of them can be compensated if the eligibility conditions are met. It is essential that all those flights be on a single reservation. Currently, AirHelp says, many flights are operated in code-share with airline partners in the same alliance, but the company issuing the flight ticket is responsible for running the race to the end, including for delays or cancellations that may occur. This year, flights delayed or canceled due to spontaneous strikes of pilots and flight attendants or airport staff automatically fall into the right to compensation. Passengers can apply retroactively for damages within three years after the affected flight time and can receive compensation up to 600 euros.

Although passengers are entitled to apply for compensation up to 600 euros, only 50% of them apply for compensation.

Moreover, despite the 14-year EC 261 law governing the right of passengers to compensation, they do not apply for compensation for the following reasons: they do not know that they have this right (42%), I do not think they are eligible for damages (36 %) and do not know how to file a complaint (24%).

The world's most punctual airports revealed and the UK only has ONE
It turns out that if you want the best chance of a smooth journey, it's best to use hubs in JapanRussia, Finland or the US, according to a new report, which reveals the most punctual airports in the world. Shamefully, the only airport in the UK to ...

Airports in JapanRussiaFinland and the US have proven the performance after analysis by OAG, because they have the fewest recorded last year delayed flights. OAG report reviewed airports divided into three categories: small, medium and large, based on the number of seats sold annually, notes the Daily Mail. Thus, a small airport category fewer than 10 million people sold annually, a model of punctuality in this category Itami airport in Osaka Japan with a rating of 93.85%. The analysis was based on the flights should take off or arrive within 15 minutes of the scheduled departure or arrival announced. In the category of medium airports at Copenhagen was ranked first with a rating of 88.53% of flights arrived on time in 2015. Regarding major airports of the world, Tokyo Haneda from Japan included this year in the first position of the ranking, with 91.25% of flights timed departure and destination announced.

Travel compensation and how to claim them

Affected passengers are entitled to compensation up to 600 euros per person if their flight had a delay of more than 3 hours, was canceled or overbooked. Tourists can apply for and obtain compensation even if the airline offers them another flight to the destination where they have to arrive, vouchers for food and drink and / or accommodation.

The right to compensation for flights delayed, canceled or overbooked by an airline or low-cost airline is regulated by the European Union by Regulation (EC) 261/2004. The condition is that the passenger leaves the European Union with any airline or arrives in the European Union with an airline registered in the EU (or IcelandNorway or Switzerland). For example, an American citizen flying from the US or Africa to an EU destination with a company like Air France or Lufthansa is entitled to compensation if his flight is affected by delays, cancellations or overbookings.

However, affected passengers may only be eligible for compensation under the following conditions:

Flights take delays of at least three hours
It is the fault of the airline (eg an aircraft has been damaged).
It is not a cause for compensation for weather conditions, bad weather, political disturbances, terrorist attacks.
The airline refuses to board the passenger

Also, according to European Directive 261/2004, if a flight has several stopovers, the delay in one of them can be compensated if the eligibility conditions are met. It is essential that all those flights be on a single reservation. Currently, AirHelp says, many flights are operated in code-share with airline partners in the same alliance, but the company issuing the flight ticket is responsible for running the race to the end, including for delays or cancellations that may occur. This year, flights delayed or canceled due to spontaneous strikes of pilots and flight attendants or airport staff automatically fall into the right to compensation. Passengers can apply retroactively for damages within three years after the affected flight time and can receive compensation up to 600 euros.

A study conducted by AirHelp at EU level shows that: 85% of citizens of member countries do not know what rights they have as airline passengers. 66% of European tourists claim that airlines do not provide sufficient information about their rights as passengers 13 million passengers annually lose 5 billion euros, because they do not apply for delayed, canceled or overbooked flights.

Although passengers are entitled to apply for compensation up to 600 euros, only 50% of them apply for compensation. One of the main reasons is that air carriers do not inform passengers about their rights, as 66% of the study participants claim. Moreover, despite the 14-year EC 261 law governing the right of passengers to compensation, they do not apply for compensation for the following reasons: they do not know that they have this right (42%), I do not think they are eligible for damages (36 %) and do not know how to file a complaint (24%).

1. Clothing or jewelery containing metal It is no surprise that shoes with large metal ornaments or metal jewelery can make it difficult to make progress in the security area. What is unexpected is that some shiny sweaters may have woven metal wires in them. While you can easily remove the shoes as needed, removing a sweater might be more difficult.

2. Straight clothes Avoid tight clothing on your body, especially when your flight is longer than 4 hours. Persons on a long-distance flight are at risk of DVT (deep vein thrombosis). DVT is a blood clot that forms in a deep vein, usually at the foot. To prevent this, wear special compression socks, wearing comfortable clothes and walking as often as you can.

3. Summer clothes Even when you are flying in a warm country and you are tempted to choose summer flying clothing, remember that the airplane temperature can be surprisingly cold. Having multiple layers of clothing is essential for a comfortable journey.

4. Contact lenses On an airplane, the average humidity may reach up to 20%, which will cause the lens to dry and cause irritation to your eyes. If you have a long flight, it is recommended to remove your lenses, especially if you are sleeping.

5. High heels Airport security will ask you to remove your shoes. Not only can the heels be used to store forbidden objects but they have a metal construction base that will surely trigger the alarm. No one would like to sit barefoot on the airport floor. In addition, your feet may swell during the flight, so the shoes should be avoided.

6. T-shirts with offensive text You will not believe this, but there are people who have been forbidden to board the plane because of the way they were dressed. The reasons may be multiple: too large, short dress, left-handed pants, offensive jersey, bare legs or even leggings. While some of these decisions are questionable, try to stay reasonable when choosing clothing.

After a safe landing ... the 151 passengers left the plane through emergency exits and were taken to a transit gate, "said a spokesman for the Koln-Bonn airport. Passengers also had to pass immediately through security filters and the authorities also checked the EasyJet. It seems that other passengers have decided to let the flight crew know of the suspicious conversation between the three men, which had a terrorist content. All passengers received one night at the hotel and left Sunday morning to London.

German police announced on Sunday that they found no explosive on the EasyJet plane that had landed the day before in Cologne (West Germany) because of "suspicious conversations" heard on board, AFP informs. The three British 31, 38 and 48-year-olds arrested after landing, continue to be interrogated by the police. According to the authorities, none of them are in the security services database.
