Ich (Markus) bin grade in Bayreuth. Jemand Lust für ein spontanes Hörertreffen? Bspw. Mittwoch Abend? (Foto (c) Rico Neitzel, CC-AS-2.5)

Episode 257 concludes the recordings from the my trip to the US earlier this year; we discuss fullscale flight reserarch at NASA Armstrong:

http://omegataupodcast.net/257-flight-research-at-nasa-armstrong-part-2-fullscale/

As part of my trip to the US earlier this year I visited NASA’s Armstrong Flight Research Center at Edwards Air Force Base. I conducted six interviews over two days, those concerning full scale (“real”) aircraft are in this episode. We start out with Kevin Weinert, with whom we talk about the Adaptive Compliant Trailing Edge project, essentially a flap made of flexible materials to save fuel and reduce noise. Next up is Jim Less, one of NASA’s F-15 and F-18 pilots; we chat about his flying and various research projects where the jets are utilized (you can see this part as a continuation of Episode 73, where we chatted with Dick Ewers). Finally, we talk about flying the MQ-9 and RQ-4 unmanned aerial vehicles with the pilots Scott Howe and Hernan Posada.

Übrigens: die von uns gemeinsam vorbereitete Folge zu Kohlekraftwerken wird (erstmal) nichts. Gast(firma) hat Zusage zurückgezogen :((

I have uploaded the questions for a detailed episode about ATC radar, transponders and ADS-B. Any additions? https://github.com/omegataupodcast/episode-prep/blob/master/open/ATCRadar.md

omega tau 256 – Flight Research at NASA Armstrong, Part 1: Subscale

http://omegataupodcast.net/256-flight-research-at-nasa-armstrong-part-1-subscale/

As part of my trip to the US earlier this year I visited NASA’s Armstrong Flight Research Center at Edwards Air Force Base. I conducted six interviews over two days, the ones concerning subscale research (i.e., on model airplanes) are in this episode. We start with a conversation about flying wings in general and Prandtl-D in particular with Armstrong’s Chief Scientist Al Bowers. Next, we chat about flutter research and the X-56 with project lead Cheng Moua. Finally, we talk to Matt Moholt about his project, the Spanwise Adaptive Wing project.

The next two episodes are those from my visit to NASA Armstrong. I took a number of pictures that do not directly relate to the episode, so I am publishing those here.
