STRATOLAUNCH COMPLETES FIRST LOW-SPEED TAXI TEST STRATOLAUNCH飞机完成首次低速滑行测试

Jet Asia Pacific - - Jet News -

Late December marked another major milestone in the Stratolaunch aircraft’s journey to flight with its first low-speed taxi test. For the first time, the aircraft traveled down the runway under its own power, utilizing all six Pratt & Whitney turbofan engines.

The primary purpose of this activity was to test the aircraft’s ability to steer and stop. Its ground team monitored a number of systems, including steering, braking, anti-skid and telemetry. All objectives of this test were achieved – culminating to the aircraft traveling down the runway at 25 knots (28 miles per hour). 12月底, Stratolaunch飞机进行了首次低速滑行测试,标志着又一重大里程碑事件。该飞机启动全部6台普惠涡扇发动机,首次依靠其自身动力在跑道上滑行。

此次测试的主要目的在于检验该飞机的操纵与停止能力。其地面团队监测一系列系统,包括转向、制动、防滑与遥测等。此次测试的所有目标均已实现——飞机成功在跑道上实现了25节( 28英里/小时)的滑行。
