Проекта забуксува днес. На срещата на купувачите в Лондон, най-голямото препятствие се оказаха не домакините /с 25 поръчки за самолета/, а Германия/поръчки за 60 самолета/, поради, което срещата е прекратена. Великобритания е съгласна да се увеличи сумата, която тя ще плати до 3,375 милиарда евро за 25 самолета/или с 25% повече/. Франция и Испания също са съгласни да платят повече, но Германия отказа. Нейните самолети са най-евтини по 100 милиона /или общо 6 милиарда евро/, тъй, като страната има най-голямо участие в проекта. Увеличен е срока за постигане на съгласия до началото на февруари.
Първоначално 180-те самолета трябваше да струват 20 милиарда долара или средно по 111,1(1) милиона евро на самолет.

"Airbus A400M" отново във въздуха?
Временно са прекратени полетите на A400M. По-рано беше прекратена програмата на тестовете поради лошото време. До сега са изпълнени 7 полета с обща продължителност повече от 30 часа. В момента се правят корекции и подобрения. Очаква се след около три седмици да продължат тестовете.

Ако имаха малко повече акъл и по-малко гордост, да са изкупили отдавна Ан-70 с парцалите и да градят на тази основа.

А и проявяват достатъчно акъл еврпейците, въпреки всичко да инвестират в собствената си индустрия.

EADS са заплашили, че ако в понеделник (15 февруари) не се получи яснота за финансирането на А400М, ще започнат да прекратяват програмата.

EADS To Ground A400M if No Deal By Monday: Report
By AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE
Published: 11 Feb 2010 10:30


MADRID - The European EADS aerospace group, which controls Airbus, will begin to wind down development of the A400M military transport plane if an agreement on budget overruns is not agreed with partner governments by Monday, a report said here Feb. 11.

The newspaper Cinco Dias quoted trade union sources as saying that top Airbus executive Tom Enders had made this clear Feb. 10 when he visited an Airbus site at Getafe near Madrid.
Related Topics

The report said Enders told union officials that European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company (EADS) chief executive Louis Gallois had written to the governments concerned threatening to begin winding down development if an agreement on big development cost overruns were not found.

The partner governments backing development of the innovative A400M are Germany, France, Britain, Belgium, Luxembourg, Spain and Turkey.

An EADS spokesman, when asked about the report, said talks among the partners were "continuing, with the urgent nature of the situation clear to everyone."

In Paris a defense ministry spokesman, Laurent Teisseire, said France had not received the communication from Gallois mentioned in the report.

He added that the last exchanges with the EADS head last week "showed that like us EADS wants to see an end [to the negotiations] as soon as possible but without reference to a particular date."

Gallois said in Munich, Germany, on Feb. 6 that he expected clarification by "next week" on government financing of the extra costs.

French Defense Minister Herve Morin has said that the seven countries had given EADS until the end of February to conclude negotiations.

The program to develop the new transport aircraft and produce 180 planes was based on a budget of 20 billion euros ($27.6 billion). But development costs have pushed up the budget by more than 5.0 billion euros and the program is running at least three years late.

The governments have already agreed to provide an extra 2.0 billion euros, and EADS 800 million euros.

If the governments agree to a French proposal to advance another 1.5 billion euros, the remaining funding gap will be about 1.0 billion euros.

Airbus A400m: buyers submit joint proposal on funding
By James Hall, Retail Editor
Published: 6:57PM GMT 15 Feb 2010


Representatives from Britain, Germany, France, Spain, Belgium, Luxembourg and Turkey on Monday submitted the proposal to EADS, Airbus's parent company. EADS must now respond, a spokesman for the German defence ministry said.

"The buyer nations are thereby confirming their firm intention of continuing the A400M project. It's now important to see how the industry will react to the proposals," the ministry spokesman told a news conference.


He added that it has been agreed by the parties to remain silent on the details of the funding plan. The partners have been at odds for months over how to resolve a funding shortfall on the A400M troop carrier.

The €20bn (£17.4bn) project faces estimated losses of €7.6bn, of which EADS has so far pledged to absorb €3.2bn. EADS has asked buyers to share some of the losses to prevent damage to Europe's airliner business and safeguard around 10,000 A400M jobs.

Sources familiar with the talks said in addition to offering to cover €2bn, buyer nations were now prepared to put up guarantees worth €1.5bn, leaving an outstanding funding gap of around €900m.

Late last week Airbus threatened to start winding down work on the troubled project within days if long-running talks with national buyers do not yield results.

Tom Enders, chief executive, told unions in Spain that he was ready to stop work on the aircraft if no agreement on funding is reached with European governments.

The discussions have already dragged on beyond the January 31 deadline laid down by Airbus.

The A400M is costing EADS between €100m and €150m a month while talks have continued with Britain, Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Spain and Turkey.

The seven countries have together ordered 180 of the planes.

Airbus has 52,000 employees around Europe with about 10,000 working on the A400M. The plane is designed to carry troops, armoured vehicles and helicopters. It would replace Europe's ageing fleet of transport planes.

A400M: Final deal close?
An agreement may have been reached with EADS?
Gary Parsons - 25-Feb-2010


February 25: At a meeting of European Union defence ministers in Majorca, both the French and Spanish defence ministers confirmed an agreement had been reached with EADS, the parent company of Airbus Military.

French defence minister Herve Morin told AP that EADS has asked for guarantees that the 180 aircraft on order would not be reduced and that the technical specifications would not be altered. EADS also asked for clarification of the €1.5 billion in loan guarantees the partner nations are offering, together with the €2 billion to cover cost overruns.

Spanish Defence Minister Carme Chacon told the BBC "I am able to tell you with great satisfaction that we have reached an agreement in principle."

An EADS spokesman also told the BBC that "This doesn't seem like a big breakthrough to me" as little has changed since early February in the partner nations’ offer. A joint statement by all parties is expected soon.

Детайли около спасяването на програмата Airbus A400M.

A400M: Agreement on the Financing of Additional Costs
(Source: French Ministry of Defence; issued March 8, 2010)
(Issued in French only; unofficial translation by defense-aerospace.com)


"I always thought that the program was emblematic for Europeans, for the European defense industry and for our armed forces. That is why I am committed to save the program,” French Defence Minister Hervé Morin told the press during a March 8 conference on the A400M held at the Hotel de Brienne.

The customer countries of the program to develop the new A400M military transport aircraft on Friday, March 5, finalized the negotiations on the financing of additional costs, and the associated developmental delay.

The continuation of the program had been decided a few months earlier by the defense ministers of the countries concerned, on July 24, 2009 at Le Castellet, southern France. Since then, the issue of financing the additional costs was the subject of discussions between the countries involved in this project and the manufacturer, EADS.

"The agreement setting out agreed changes to the original contract will be signed within the next few days by OCCAR (Organization for Joint Cooperation in Armaments, representing the client states) and Airbus Military," the minister said. The addendum to the contract should be finalized within one to two months, and the new contract signed by next June.

Financially, this agreement includes several decisions:

-- The nations have waived penalties for the delays on the original schedule, for an amount of about 1.2 billion euros;
-- A new schedule for pre-delivery payments, spread out between 2010 and 2014, was agreed to maintain a minimum cash flow for the manufacturer, and enable it to continue the program without difficulty;
-- A price increase of about 10% (2 billion euros), shared between the client countries in proportion to the number of aircraft ordered, was also recognised;
--Finally, the client nations will provide an interest-bearing, refundable advance of EUR 1.5 billion to the manufacturer. This is, in fact, an investment in future exports of the aircraft.

As regards France, the order of 50 aircraft is maintained. The first aircraft will be delivered in early 2013. Seven additional aircraft will arrive by the end of 2014, and another 35 by 2020. The last delivery is scheduled for 2024.

The delay in the delivery of the A400M, of about 4 to 5 years, will be offset by the continued employment of certain Transall aircraft, by the purchase of 8 CASA light cargo aircraft as well as leases in the field of strategic lift.

In total, changes to the program will cost France an additional 550 million euros. The total cost will increase to 22 billion euros for all countries involved in the project.

Великобритания е първата страна, която ще намали поръчките за А400М.
Вместо първоначално исканите 25 самолета, ще бъдат реално поръчани с три по-малко.

The Royal Air Force will receive 22 A400M transport aircraft.
Gary Parsons - 29-Mar-2010


March 29: The UK Ministry of Defence has confirmed that the Royal Air Force will receive 22 A400M transport aircraft, a cut of three from the 25 originally wanted.

Defence Secretary Bob Ainsworth said Airbus Military will deliver “at least” 22 aircraft. “I am greatly encouraged by the progress made on the A400M programme,” he added.

The aircraft will be based at RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire.

Полетял е втория прототип на А400М. До момента програмата има 70 часа.

Second A400M takes off
DATE:09/04/10
SOURCE:Flightglobal.com
By Craig Hoyle


A second A400M has joined Airbus Military’s operational flight test fleet, and taken the delayed type past the 70 flight hour mark.

Piloted by Michel Gagneux, Karl-Heinz Mai and with three flight test engineers aboard, aircraft MSN002 completed a 4h 50min debut sorties from Seville, Spain on 8 April. Carrying heavy flight-test instrumentation, the aircraft got airborne with a take-off weight of 128t; 13t below the A400M’s expected maximum.

“The crew confirmed that the aircraft and its four Europrop International TP400D engines performed in line with expectations,” Airbus Military says.

“Having MSN002 join the flying programme will help us accelerate the rate of progress in building flight hours,” says head of flight operations Fernando Alonso.

The first of five flight test aircraft, MSN001, has now flown 15 times and spent over 66h in the air. The platform made its 3h 45min debut flight on 11 December last year and was recently moved to Toulouse, France.

MSN003 should fly “by the beginning of the summer”, according to the European manufacturer, with the fourth aircraft to follow suit around year-end.

Germany Confirms A400M Agreement
By Jens Flottau
FRANKFURT — Germany will take only 53 of the 60 Airbus Military A400Ms originally on order, German government sources indicated on Oct. 25.
A400M customers continue to chip away at the commitment of 180 units that was negotiated as part of a general settlement reached in March. With the U.K. planning to cut its commitment by three aircraft, the total program now totals 170 aircraft.
French avionics specialist Thales will have to cover possible additional expenses for flight management system (FMS) changes, according to the sources. But a German defense ministry letter to leading Bundestag defense committee members says that industry has to come to a final agreement on the FMS matter.
Defense State Secretary Thomas Kossendey writes in the statement obtained by AVIATION WEEK that implementation of the March 31 heads-of-terms deal with the A400M nations turned out to be more challenging than expected. In his view, that is mainly due to the lengthy search for a compromise on the industry side and reworked planning for the FMS.
But the letter concludes that “significant progress has been made” since then, and negotiations on Oct. 1 “should finally have led to a breakthrough. After tough negotiations so far, an agreement with regards to critical aspects, particularly the financial ones, could be found according to the view of the nations.” Kossendey refers to talks involving the nations, the Occar arms procurement agency and Airbus Military.

A400M close to first air drop, refuelling tests, says Airbus
By Craig Hoyle
Airbus Military is poised to perform its first air-drop assessments with the A400M transport, while long-running contract negotiations with its seven European customers appear to also be making significant progress.
Development aircraft MSN1, which is undergoing artificial ice trials flying from Toulouse, will soon start air-drop tests, says Fernando Alonso, Airbus Military's senior vice-president flight and integration test centre. The process will first involve releasing balls from the transport's cargo ramp and doors, before progressing to dropping instrumented dummies and then paratroops from France and the UK.
Other planned activities for the A400M for the rest of this year include braking trials at Spain's Moron air base, and completing around five outstanding flutter test flights. "We have done sufficient [tests] to be confident that our predictions are good," Alonso says, with these having already been completed at up to Mach 0.7.
Further work with a tail bumper installed will also prove the A400M's expected maximum take-off angle of around 12°, with 10° having already been demonstrated.
MSN1 is also to be deployed to the Royal Air Force's Brize Norton air base in the UK for up to 10 days to undergo receiver trials behind a Vickers VC10. To involve only dry contacts, the work will de-risk further work to be done using MSN4 next year.
Alonso says the priorities for early 2011 are to conduct natural icing trials and make the first series of landings on unprepared runways (artist's impression, above). Cold weather trials will be performed in Sweden and Canada, high-altitude operating tests made in La Paz, Bolivia, and hot weather activities conducted in Al Ain, the United Arab Emirates.
The A400M programme's current three test assets had flown a combined 200 sorties and 672 flight hours by 25 October, with Alonso revealing that the latter is around 100h fewer than planned.
One factor in this shortfall was the need to replace two Europrop International TP400-D6 engines during September: one from each of the programme's Toulouse-based aircraft. One suffered foreign object damage, while the other had an actuator failure due to pollution in its oil system. "EPI was very reactive in isolating the root cause of the problem and fixing it," Alonso says, but each change took two to three weeks to complete.
Nonetheless, he says no major problems have been encountered to date, and Airbus expects to complete certification activities late next year.
Aircraft MSN4 is on track to make its flight debut before year-end, having recently been moved from the final assembly line at San Pablo airport near Seville to receive its hydraulics fluid and fuel. The first structure for programme's remaining development aircraft, MSN6, has also arrived at the site, with the centre wingbox to be followed within the next few weeks by its wings.
Airbus expects to sign a new production contract with Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Spain, Turkey and the UK before the end of the year. Germany is understood to have agreed to trim its purchase from 60 A400Ms to 53, which when combined with the UK's planned removal of three transports will reduce the European order to 170 aircraft.

Финализирана е сделката за А400М
Написано от Списание АЕРО
Понеделник, 08 Ноември 2010 20:26


Страните клиентки на турбовитловия транспортен самолет А400М и производителя EADS се споразумяха за финалните условия по закупуването и доставките на самолета. Въпреки заплахите за прекратяване на програмата, страните клиентки по-скоро отстъпиха на условията на EADS.

Изображение

Конкретните условия по споразумението включват съгласие на седемте страни клиентки (Германия, Франция, Великобритания, Турция, Испания, Белгия и Люксембург) да заплатят допълнително 3,5 млрд. евро по програмата, гаранция за оттегляне на всякакви правни претенции по закъсняващата програма и нарастващите цени и ограничават броя на общо отказаните машини до 10 от общо 180. Клиентите се съгласяват също на ускоряване на плащанията в периода 2010 – 2014 г. EADS от своя страна поема 1,8 млрд. евро от преразходите по програмата.
Германия ще откаже седем самолета от първоначално планираните 60. Великобритания пък ще откаже три А400М от първоначално заявените 25 машини. Първата серийна машина, чието производство вече започна, ще бъде доставена през 2013 г. на Франция, а страната ще получи още седем самолета през 2014 г. Като цяло програмата инкасира около четири години закъснение и сериозен преразход.
В същото време изпитателната програма върви гладко. Към края на октомври трите прототипа на А400М са налетяли общо 773,5 часа при 230 полета. Наскоро от самолета се извършиха първите реални парашутни скокове, а до края на годината ще полети и четвъртия прототип.

Германия ще се откаже от още 13 А400М
Написано от Списание АЕРО
Четвъртък, 27 Януари 2011 13:15

Въоръжените сили на Германия имат намерение да се откажат от още 13 стратегически транспортни самолети Airbus A400M. Това е просто част от мащабните усилия на германското правителство да намали харчовете в бюджетната сфера.
В момента Германия възнамерява да поръча 53 самолета А400М, но необходимостта от намаляване на военния бюджет ще наложи съкращаване на цели 13 машини. Оригинално Германия възнамеряваше да придобие 60 самолета, но в рамките на преструкторирането на програмата А400М, страната се отказа от 7 машини. Не е ясно какво ще се направи с излишните 13 самолета, но се предполага, че Германия ще се опита да ги продаде на външни клиенти.
В момента в Германия се залагат огромни съкращения на въоръжените сили, които трябва да бъдат намалени от 250 000 на 185 000. В същото време в момента във ВВС на Германия има на въоръжение около 80 стари C-160 Transall, които спешно се нуждаят от замяна за да осигурят мобилността на немската армия.
Програмата А400М до скоро бе затънала в технически проблеми и бюджетни преразходи. През ноември 2010 г. страните клиентки на А400М се съгласиха да отпуснат допълнително финансиране за проектът. Към момента изпитателната програма върви гладко и се очаква през 2013 г. първия сериен самолет да бъде предаден на Франция.

Полетя първият сериен А400М
Написано от Списание АЕРО
Четвъртък, 07 Март 2013 19:28


Първият сериен стратегически транспортен самолет Airbus Military A400M изпълни първия си полет днес, 7 март 2012 г., от летището в Севиля, Испания. Полетът продължил 5 часа и 42 минути е протекал нормално.

Машината е известна като MSN7 и е предназначена за ВВС на Франция. Полетът е започнал в 11,48 часа местно време. Командирът на самолета е Хю ван дер Стрихел, който след полета е отбеляза, че няма никакви забележки към машината.

Първият сериен A400M трябва да бъде доставен на ВВС на Франция през май или юни 2013 г.
