AGlazed Fouga Magister

AGlazed Fouga Magister

THe Dutch Historic Jet Association have given praise to the AGlaze system.


Their Fouga Magister CM-170 was AGlazed by Angus Craig, of AGlaze Benelux in The Netherlands, at the end of last year.

Fons Hemmelder, The Dutch Historic Jet Associations Board Member for Operational Affairs, gave high praise to the AGlaze system saying

after the application of AGlaze, our aircraft is much easier to clean which saves us a lot of labour hours, the colours look much brighter & shiny’


He further added that we do experience during low level navigation flights a much higher indicated airspeed with the same power setting, for example with the recommended range-power-setting according to the Aircraft Operating Manual, the resulting speed would be 210kts, Now, with the same power setting our aircraft flies 225kts, which equals a saving of more than 7%’

AGlaze Limited have been working alongside Airbourne Colours, the leading Bournemouth based commercial paint facility, and is today pleased to announce that AGlaze paint sealant, has lead to a tangible fuel saving for bmibaby based on Boeing’s Airplane Performance Monitoring® system. An airframe efficiency improvement of 0.8% was achieved after application in November 2011, which equates to a 161 tonne JetA1 fuel saving over the course of year based on 7.5 hour/day utilisation.

Andrew Tarry, sales and marketing manager of Airbourne Colours, said, ‘In today’s high fuel price environment, these fuel savings are welcome. I am pleased to say as the exclusive distributor for this excellent product, we can ensure that it is applied to the highest standards at a location of an operator’s choice’.

AGlaze underwent extensive wind tunnel testing at the Aircraft Research Association’s high-speed wind tunnel in the final week of May.

AGlaze applied under strict conditions.

The product was applied to a test model to ensure accurate scientific confirmation of these results in improving airframe efficiency compared with a traditionally painted aircraft surface. The results confirmed the bmi test results and also proved that even on a brand new smooth, unweathered paint surface the AGlaze treatment significantly reduces drag, the benefits would considerably increase on older paint finishes.

Aircraft Research Association is an independent non-profit distributing research and development organisation that was set up as a wind tunnel test centre for the UK aircraft industry.

Matthew Darge, Operations Director of AGlaze said ‘ This is an exciting time for our product, we have always known that the sealant could potentially save on fuel usage but to have it now independently confirmed, gives further confidence to major airlines that by getting involved with the AGlaze programme they can dramatically improve their fuel efficiency and in turn help reduce their carbon footprint’.
