Transcript: EP39 - Blade Entering the EVTOL Market; Boeing 787 Fuselage Issues and NASA X-59 Milestones



All right, welcome back to the struck podcast. I'm your co-host Dan Blewett on today's show. We've got a good docket of topics. Number one, we're going to talk about the eco pulse hybrid designs. Uh, interesting new aircraft. And we'll talk about some of that. Uh, NASA supersonic X-59 has a wing, a wing milestone.



So some, uh, good work from NASA. And we'll chat a little about that. And then obviously Virgin galactic, um, still big and has his hands in lots of different industries, but we're going to chat a little bit about their space tourism play in their headache. Concerning, but, um, sit still safe, sort of a board as part of the recent, one of the recent test flights in our engineering segment, we're going to talk about the Boeing 787, continuing to have fuselage issues.



Some new slight defects have been detected. And we're going to chat a little bit about the way carbon fiber and other materials are machine and manufactured and how, just how difficult it is to get some of these really high tolerance parts built. Right. And then lastly, we're going to chat about blade, which is a helicopter, a rental service and their potential entrance into the EVTOL market.



So, Allen, how are things going? We're closing on the holidays.



Allen Hall: Yeah, it's going to snow first big grill, snow storm, or the season is happening now, which means all our aerospace engineering companies in the Northeast are preparing for the worst, but that's okay. You know, it's part of this seasonal shift and we're getting close to the holidays, Christmas and new year and Hanukkah and everything's starting.



So that's exciting.



Dan: Yeah. It's um, well it's been currently snowing and. It's kind of half raining most of the day today. So it's definitely feeling Christmas-y that's for sure. So jumping into it today, what is, uh, striking to you about this eco pulse distributed propulsion hybrid aircraft it's coming out of France?



Um, this is news from to lose. Um, but tell us a little bit about what this propulsion system is and what do you think the long-term ramifications are?



Allen Hall: Well, it's first off, it's being funded by the French government. And it is essentially a consortium of French companies like, uh, saffron that makes electric motors and it is, it'd be very similar to what happened to the United States when there's government funding for a project where you're trying to.



Boost the industry and get to the next steps. Uh, so the airplane itself, I don't know if the airplane's all that important. Maybe it is in a longer scheme of things, as much as developing the system components and the products that they can offer worldwide in which. They are totally going to do so think of it as a, as a government funded jobs program a little bit, but also a technology development program that gives those com...
