    • Full throttle for engine solutions
      Powering aircraft from Mach 2 fighters to tiny hovering UAVs, military engine technology is now operating on a very broad front. Design and production flexibility together with reduced in-service costs are priorities.
    • To the breaking point
      Test engineers use new rigs and data-acquisition equipment on the latest generation of pneumatics, engines, and airframes.
    • PCs move into the cockpit
      Pilot training is getting a bit less expensive with the introduction of more portable flight simulations.
