NAVAIR marks first flight with 3-D printed, safety-critical parts

NAVAL AIR STATION PATUXENT RIVER, Maryland (NNS) -- Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) marked its first successful flight demonstration of a flight critical aircraft component built using additive manufacturing (AM) techniques, July 29. An MV-22B Osprey completed a test flight outfitted with a titanium, 3-D printed link and fitting assembly for the engine nacelle. This link and fitting assembly is one of four that secure a V-22's engine nacelle to the primary wing structure and will remain on the aircraft for continued evaluation. The flight was performed using the standard V-22 flight performance envelope. "The flight went great. I never would have known that we had anything different onboard," said MV-22 Project Officer Maj. Travis Stephenson who piloted the flight. AM uses digital 3-D design data to build components in layers of metal, plastic and other materials. The m...
