A team from University of Wales TSD Swansea are looking to kite surf across the Bristol Channel

This weekend you’ve probably a friend, relative or colleague doing something, somewhere for a charity - a noble deed, some exhausting act, or something simply ‘a bit daft’.

We’re a society that thrives on both pushing ourselves, and contributing to helping others less fortunate, which is why the task set by a group from University of Wales TSD Swansea’s product design course is so eye catching.

Harnessing the power of both sea and wind, five kite-surfers will attempt to cross the 33 mile Bristol Channel in a world’s first attempt - To put this into context, the English Channel (Dover-Calais) is a mere 21 miles.

The test flight is another step on the path towards entering service in 2020

The Rolls-Royce composite carbon/titanium (CTi) fan blade for its Advance and UltraFan eco engine designs has taken to the skies for the first time.

The lighter fan blades retain aerodynamic performance, which when combined with a composite engine casing reduces weight by up to 1,500lb per aircraft, the equivalent of carrying seven more passengers at no cost.

The Advance engine design will offer at least 20 per cent less fuel burn and CO₂ emissions than the first generation of Rolls-Royce Trent engine and could be ready for entry into service from 2020.
