Water ingestion trials are performed as a safety critical evaluation of an aircraft’s engines during take-off and landing manoeuvres through puddles. Here at Cranfield Aerospace (CAeS) we have the unique capability to run, manage and support water ingestion trials at the UK’s only specially constructed water ingestion testing facility. Our unique facility is integrated into the main runway at Cranfield Airport and allows complete control over the number of runs, direction and depth of water required to meet regulatory requirements. Each dedicated trial is designed to put an aircraft through its paces and ensure that any water ingested by the engines during take-off and landing does not cause unacceptable power loss, damage or failure.

For water ingestion testing, CAeS can offer:

  • Years of experience conducting successful water ingestion trials
  • UK’s only specifically constructed water ingestion test runway
  • Dedicated project managers and experienced trials engineers
  • Commercial, business and private aircraft testing
