Bleed air and Boeing 7E7

Recommended Posts

I just wanted to share this info I just read regarding the 7E7 project. I found it quite interesting and surprising.It turns out engines on 7E7 will be started by electric motors, not typically through bleed air supplied from APU. This will require a new type of APU.(AWST Feb.9, page 38).Michael J.http://www.reality-xp.com/community/nr/rsc/rxp-higher.jpg

I thought the one thing interesting in that article and the previously one on 12/22/03 is author Mecham's misunderstanding that "traditional" electric generation is powered by engine bleed air! How did he end up writing for AW&ST?

>that "traditional" electric generation is powered by engine>bleed air! Really, so he goofed up ! Amazing. Maybe in the letters to the editor next week someone will point out the error. Maybe you Kevin should raise this issue with AW&ST.Michael J.
