IAE V2500

The IAE V2500 is a two-shaft high-bypass turbofan engine which powers the Airbus A320 family, the McDonnell Douglas MD-90, the Embraer KC-390. The engine name symbolizes on one hand the roman letter 5 for the number of the original aero-engine manufacturers of the International Aero Engines consortium, formed in 1983 to produce the V2500 engine. On the other hand, the 2500 represents the thrust class of 25,000 lbf of the first engine V2500-A1. FAA type certification for the V2500 was granted in 1988. Rolls-Royce based the HP compressor on a scale-up of the RC34B eight stage research unit used in the RB401-06 Demonstrator Engine, but with a zero-stage added at the front and a tenth stage added to the rear. Pratt & Whitney developed the combustor and the 2-stage air-cooled HP turbine, while the Japanese Aero Engine Corporation provided the LP compression system. MTU Aero Engines were responsible for Fiat Avio designed the gearbox; the 4,000th V2500 engine was delivered to the Brazilian flag carrier TAM and installed on the 4,000th Airbus A320 family aircraft.

In early 2012, the 5,000th V2500 engine was delivered to SilkAir, IAE achieved 100 million flying hours. Six years in June 2018 over 7,600 engines were delivered and the V2500 achieved 200 million flight hours on 3100 aircraft in service. First entered service with Adria Airways. A fourth booster stage was introduced into the engine basic configuration to increase core flow. This, together with a fan diameter and airflow increase, helped to increase the thrust to 33,000 lbf thrust, to meet the requirements of the larger Airbus A321-200; the vast majority of V2500s are A5. The maintenance and operations market for V2500 is close to US$3 billion as of 2015. A number of derated, Stage 4 noise compliant engines have been produced from the -A5 configuration, including: The 23,500 lbf thrust V2524-A5 for the Airbus A319 The 27,000 lbf thrust V2527-A5 for the Airbus A320 The 25,000 lbf thrust V2525-D5 for the McDonnell Douglas MD-90-30. Engine Turbine and Accessory on the side instead of bottom to accommodate lateral mounting.

Has an option in the cockpit to add 3,000 pounds additional thrust for "hot and high" conditions The 33,000 lbf thrust V2533-A5 for the Airbus A321 The 31,330 lbf thrust V2531-E5 for the Embraer KC-390 On October 10, 2005, IAE announced the launch of the V2500Select—later called V2500SelectOne—with a sale to IndiGo Airlines to power 100 A320 series aircraft. The V2500SelectOne is aftermarket agreement. In February 2009, Pratt & Whitney upgraded the first V2500-A5 to the SelectOne Retrofit standard. On March 15, 2011, IAE announced an upgrade option of V2500 SelectOne Engines to the SelectTwo Program, it offers reduced fuel consumption due to a software-upgrade and Reduced Ground Idle, is available since 2014 for the V2500-A5 variants.

Vernon Tejas

Vernon "Vern" Tejas is an American mountain climber and mountain guide. He is the current world record holder in the amount of time taken to summit all of the Seven Summits consecutively, having previously held the same record, he was the first person to solo summit several of the world's tallest peaks. Tejas was named one of the top fifty Alaskan athletes of the twentieth century by Sports Illustrated in 2002. In 2012, he was elected to the Alaska Sports Hall of Fame. Tejas plays the guitar, he resides in Greenwich Village, New York. Vernon Tejas was born on 16 March 1953 at Portland, the son of Phillip Sand Hansel and Janice Elaine Hansel. Tejas was born Vernon Edward Hansel and changed his name to Vernon Tejas. From Oregon, Tejas ended up in Alaska, he went to work on The Alaska Pipeline and for Alaska Telecom, enjoyed tower work where he built and maintained communication towers on North Slope in Alaska. He is now with Alpine Ascents International as a senior international high altitude alpine mountain guide.

Tejas became a mountain guide and mountain rescuer operating in the Andes, the Alaska Range, Antarctica during the 1980s. In 1980, he was part of the team; the team consisted of Paul Denkewalter, Vernon Tejas. The ascent began on Kahiltna Glacier, their climb was via the Northwest Spur. The Northwest Spur is known as the Lowe-Kennedy Route, after Michael Kennedy and George Lowe made the ascent with this route in 1977; the team took their supplies to the base of Triangle Face, located a few thousand feet above their base camp and established an advanced camp. They climbed the Triangle headed for Mushroom Ridge. Next the team reached the summit of Mount Hunter. In the autumn of 1982, Tejas broke his ankle while rock climbing in Yosemite; the doctors had to wait a week for the swelling to subside before setting the fracture with a cast. The stress the ankle was subjected to over the years took its toll; the pursuits of a mountaineer and a high altitude alpine mountain guide had destroyed the cartilage in between the subtalar joint.

In 2010, S. Robert Rozbruch, M. D. of the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City utilized the Ilizarov technique and injected stem cells into the fixated subtalar joint to stimulate the growth of cartilage. The procedure is known as ankle distraction. In 1986, he led the first winter summiting of Mount Logan. Around this time he made several summits of Mount Aconcagua, two of which led to descents to the base camp via a mountain bike, a paraglider, both of which he took to the peak himself along the climb. In 1988 he became the first person to paraglide from the Vinson Massif in Antarctica, became the first man to solo ascend the mountain, he has paraglided from the summit of Mount Elbrus. In 1988, Tejas became the first person to solo climb Mount McKinley, during the winter season, he had summited the peak several times as a mountain guide. In order to prevent becoming lost on the climb, he used an aluminum ladder as a part of his safety equipment, so that he would not fall into a crevasse.

In 2011, he recorded his fiftieth summiting of the mountain. He has summited the northern-most peak in the world, Helvetia Tinde. In 1989, he began guiding for Alpine Ascents International. In 1992, Tejas was part of the team that measured the exact height of Mount Everest, was the team member that planted the prism pole at the top of the mountain so that lasers could be used to measure the exact altitude. On 12 May 1992, Todd Burleson and Peter Athans placed laser prisms from Bradford Washburn on the summit of Mount Everest as part of a study to determine the height. In 1994, Tejas helped guide Norman D. Vaughan up his namesake Antarctic mountain Mount Vaughan in the days leading up to Norman Vaughan's 89th birthday. In 2010, Tejas set the world record for the fastest period in which a person has climbed all seven of the world's highest mountain summits, at 134 days, he is the only person to have summited all seven on at least ten separate occasions, has climbed all seven twice within a year.

He had held the record in 2005 at 187 days. During the period of the new record, he scaled the Carstensz Pyramid in New Guinea. First person to climb Seven Summits 10 times. On 12 May 1992, Tejas was the youngest person. Mount Everest, 11 guided summit ascents. Denali, 54 guided ascents, 1st solo winter ascent, 1st paraglider descent, 14:50 speed ascent. During the Denali solo winter ascent, when Tejas reached the summit he planted a Japanese flag to commemorate the heroic efforts of Naomi Uemura. In 1984, Uemari had reached the summit attempting a solo winter ascent but disappeared on the descent and his body has never been found. Mount Elbrus, 34 guided ascents, 3:20 speed ascent from hut, paraglide descent. Mount Aconcagua, 25 guided ascents, 8:02 speed ascent, paraglide descent. Aconcagua, Cerro 6,959 m, 22,831 ft. Known as the "Sentinel of Stone," its original name in Quechua language. Aconcagua was conquered in 1897 by Swiss guide Matthias Zurbriggen. Located near the Argentinean-Chilean border, this is the world's highest mountain outside of the Himalayas, the South American highpoint.

Although it is not a volcano, it is of volcanic origin. The summit ridge, between the north, or main peak, the south peak, 6,930 m, 22,736 ft, is called the Cresta Guanaco; the normal route is located in the south and circles to the west side of the mountain ascends the northwest ridge.

Band-winged meadowhawk

The band-winged meadowhawk is a dragonfly of the genus Sympetrum belonging to the family Libellulidae. Sympetrum semicinctum is related to, may not be a distinct species from, the western meadowhawk. Other geographical variants are S. fasciatum. This species is native to Continental United States, from coast to coast, it is present in Canada. This dragonfly can be found perched on vegetation along the edges of meadows, in weedy ponds and lakes in the hills or mountains. Sympetrum semicinctum can reach a length of 28–36 millimetres, with a wingspan of 45–55 millimetres; the male has a bright red abdomen with black markings on the lower sides and on the top of the segments 8 and 9, creating a U like pattern. The thorax is brownish red and the sides show three irregular black stripes. Face and eyes are dark red; the legs are black. The hind wings have a rusty patch at the base, covering one-third of the wings, while the front wings are completely transparent. Pterostigma is blackish red; the female is greenish-yellowish or orange, with red over green on eyes and extended blackish markings on the abdomen.

Mature females sometimes turn red like males, while immature males are yellow like females and reach their red coloration. The flight period extends from April to mid October, but this dragonfly is more common in late summer. Adults feed on soft-bodied flying insects. After mating females fly in tandem with males during oviposition, performed in flight by dipping the tip of the abdomen into the water. Larvae live in aquatic vegetation, they feed on many different aquatic insects. World Odonata List ITIS
