Aerospace Research and Test Establishment

Aerospace Research and Test Establishment (VZLÚ) is a national centre for research, development and testing in aeronautics and space. The main mission of VZLÚ is to generate new knowledge, transfer it into industrial practice and to provide its partners with the maximum support in the development of new products. As a multi-discipline research organisation, VZLÚ exploits synergic effects and also contributes to progress of automotive, rail, defence, security and power industry and civil engineering. The major multidisciplinary fields of VZLÚ include: aerodynamics, structure strength and durability, material and corrosion engineering, composite materials and technologies, and accredited testing. In the field of product development, VZLÚ is focused on rotor blades, industrial fans, aircraft engines and satellite equipment. VZLÚ collaborates closely with similar organisations throughout Europe to provide feed-back necessary for its continuous development.

Excursion 1: Wind tunnel testing

Low Speed Wind Tunnels: Here measurements are taken of aircraft, cars, trains, aerials, traffic signs, athletes, simply everything that moves and causes air drag to play a major role.

Static and fatigue tests of aircraft structures: full scale static and fatigue of aircraft airframes, their parts and structural components

Excursion 2: Structure and material testing

Static and fatigue tests of aircraft structures: full scale static and fatigue of aircraft airframes, their parts and structural components.

Modal tests: modal tests on complete assemblies, dynamically similar models, structural parts, including establishing modal parameters, Ground Vibration Tests using PRODERA tester.

Material Testing and Experimental Stress Analysis: Trials are conducted on the loading machines MTS, Instron Schenck, Tira, Inova, Instron, Amsler up to 500 kN.

GE Aviation Czech

In 2008, GE Aviation acquired certain assets of Walter Engines, a Czech Republic-based manufacturer of small turboprop engines and high-precision machined aviation parts with a long history dating back to 1911. Renamed Business and General Aviation (BGA) Turboprops, the company has produced more than 37,000 aircraft engines for more than 85 years. Its most successful commercial engine family is the M601 turboprop engine, which has more than 1,600 engines installed on more than 30 aircraft types. With more than 17 million flight hours, the M601 engine has a proven legacy of performance and reliability in some of the most rugged, severe environments.
