During the Airbus Military Trade Media Briefing 2013, held on May 29th and 30th 2013,

Angel Barrio Cardaba Head of Engineering and Technology provided an overview on a number of technological developments at Airbus Military over the past year. But the key system highlighted was the C295 W.

According to Airbus Military:

Featuring winglets and uprated engines as standard, the new model will provide operators with enhanced performance in all flight phases but is particularly aimed at those operating at “hot and high“ airfields where payload increases in excess of 1,000kg are promised.

In intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) roles such as airborne early warning (AEW) the enhancements will increase endurance by 30-60min and permit an operating altitude up to 2,000ft higher than now.

The new features will also provide an overall reduction in fuel consumption of around 4% depending on configuration and conditions.

The C295W, assembled in Seville, Spain, is being offered to the market from now on and will be the standard version of the aircraft in all versions from the fourth quarter of 2014. Certification is expected in 2Q14.

Airbus Military is committing to the C295W following flight-trials with winglets fitted to its company development aircraft which showed positive results for a weight penalty of only around 90kg.

The engines are the Pratt & Whitney Canada PW127 turboprops which power all versions of the C295. New procedures recently certified by Canada and Spain permit operation in the climb and cruise phases at higher power settings at the discretion of the operator. As well as improved hot and high performance, the procedure improves operation over very high terrain such as the Andes or Himalaya mountains with only a minor influence on maintenance cost.

  • 1. May 2013Presentado porAngel Barrio Cardaba Head of Engineering and TechnologyEngineering and Technology
  • 2. • Winglets increase lift/drag ratio. Uprated engines add power in climb & cruise• Analysis of handling qualities and performance completed May 2013 usingpreliminary design• Aircraft used for the flight trials has been the company-owned C295development aircraft with structural reinforcements in the wings.Summary to date
  • 3. • Results have been very positive, with significantimprovement in performance• The next phases are:• Series solution design• Certification (including flight trials in C295)• Industrialization and introduction into seriesdesignStatus
  • 4. Main Characteristics• Winglets are metallic aerostructures with compositeattachments to the wing.• Applicable to all C-295 versions: transport, MPA, AEW…• A maximum weight increment (payload reduction) of 90 kg isestimated: 30 Kg due to wing reinforcements and 60 Kg dueto the two winglets (30 Kg/winglet).• C 295Type Rating is maintained without specific training• Fully compatible with other product improvements includingthe new engine power settings
  • 5. • Series aircraft solution:• New upper panel in external and central wing (increasedthickness)• Increased thickness in certain spars (analysis continues)• Solution for certification trials:• Increased thickness of upper panel only in external wing,implemented by repair solutionEngineering solution
  • 6. • Enhanced performance:• Higher powerplant rating,increases payload• Increased hot and highperformance• Already certified and offered ascustomer option (independently ofwinglets)Uprated PW127 engines
  • 7. • Main milestones• Start: End May 2013.• Design Documentation freeze: September2013.• Flight Trials start: January 2014.• Certification by INTA: May 2014.Certification
  • 8. May 2013C295 Airborne Early Warning & Command• New flight test campaign performed with winglets fitted.• Positive results.
