Flying payloads

LIFEAIR provides, manages and accompanies all the stages of execution in flying varied payloads on top of the company’s aircraft and many other aircraft according to the client’s needs. LIFEAIR specializes in managing the stage of system characterization, matching of licensing and installation processes and in the planning the flight and coordinating aerial operation for it. It is possible to fly heavyweight payloads on a number of different platforms and configurations. You can schedule an aircraft survey at no cost in order to examine the company’s capabilities in flying various payloads. The survey will present the methods of installation and licensing, as well as the performance of different aircraft.

These days, the company operates a number of payloads in the field of electro-optics for its clients, as well as observation, radars and transmitting and receiving antennae. The company is in communication with different government bodies in order to receive the relevant regulatory certifications to fly various systems. These include the ministry of transportation, the ministry of communication, the ministry for environmental protection and others. LIFEAIR offers its clients all of its skills and capabilities in order to advance the execution of the project of flying the system and various payloads in all of the relevant stages. If needed, LIFEAIR operates sub-contractors to advance and complete the project, including structure engineers, avionics professionals, test pilots, design and electricity engineers and safety and operation officers. 

The use of payloads to haul airborne systems

Many technological systems in development or in their capability testing stage are in need of an aerial platform which will carry them. The stage of flying these systems is critical in the research and development process, as well as in the proof of capability stage and the commercial licensing. From a flight perspective, any external element which needs flying on top of a plane gets treated as a payload. A payload by definition is a load which requires flying in order to achieve its scientific, technological or military purpose.

Types of payloads

Mostly, the shape of a payload and the material from which it is composed are characterize in relation to its original use. For example, a payload which is required to transmit electro-magnetic signals will not be made out of metallic components that may hinder its original function. For another example, a payload which was designed to be exposed to the wind regime around the aircraft during flight will not be built in a non-aerodynamic way in order to reduce the change in the wind regime around the aircraft and keep its piloting as it was originally, without the payload.

Connecting the payload to the aircraft

Each payload which requires flying goes through a process of integration with the aircraft in order to characterize the effect of its being carried by the aircraft in different aspects, such as weight effects, change in the center of gravity, air regime and other aspects. By examining these aspects, it would be possible to plan the flight configuration of the payload, in view of the end goal for which it initially required flying. The process of integration will be done during the stages of the engineering planning of installing the payload on the plane. According to this planning, adapter units will be manufactured that would come between the payload and the plane, after being certified by the engineering department of the Civil Flight Authority.
