A rocket-powered aircraft or rocket plane is an aircraft that uses a rocket engine for propulsionsometimes in addition to airbreathing jet engines. Rocket planes can achieve much higher speeds than similarly sized jet aircraft, but typically for at most a few minutes of powered operation, followed by a glide. Unhindered by the need for oxygen from the atmospherethey are suitable for very high-altitude flight. They are Mindanao - Various - ¡Hasta Aqui Hemos Llegado! capable of delivering much higher acceleration and shorter takeoffs.
Not all rocket planes are of the conventional takeoff like "normal" aircraft. Some types have been air-launched from another plane, while other types have taken off vertically — nose in the air and tail to the ground " tail-sitters ".
Because of the heavy propellant use and the various practical difficulties of operating rockets, the majority of rocket planes have been built for experimental use, as interceptor fighters and space aircraft. Rocket-powered flight was pioneered in Germany. The first aircraft to fly under rocket power was the Lippisch Entein The next year, inthe Opel RAK.
The Heinkel He was the world's first aircraft to be propelled solely by a liquid-propellant rocket engine, making its first powered flight on 20 June with Erich Warsitz at the controls. The first rocket plane ever to be mass-produced was the Messerschmitt Me Komet interceptor inone of several German World War II attempts at rocket-powered aircraft. Other experimental aircraft included the Russian Bereznyak-Isayev BI-1 that flew in while the Northrop XP was originally planned with rocket engines but switched to jet engines for its first and only flight in The rocket engine could run for about a minute.
Of much larger size, the Silbervogel antipodal bomber spaceplane was planned by the Germans late in World War II, however later calculations showed that it would not have worked, and would have been destroyed during reentry. Inthe Soviet Mikoyan-Gurevich I was built partly using technology developed by Sergei Korolev in and In the s the British developed mixed power designs to cover the performance gap that existed in then-current turbojet designs. The rocket was the main engine for delivering the speed and height required Laura - Duke Ellington - Hot Summer Dance high speed interception of high level Changes - London Aircraaft - Rockets and the turbojet gave increased fuel economy in other parts of flight, most notably to make sure the aircraft was able to make a powered landing rather than risking an unpredictable gliding return.
The Saunders-Roe SR. The advancement of the turbojet engine output, the advent of missiles, and advances in radar had made a return to mixed power unnecessary.
The development of Soviet rockets and satellites was the driving force behind the development of NASA's Changes - London Aircraaft - Rockets program. In the early s, American research into the Boeing X Dyna-Soar spaceplane was cancelled due to lack of purpose; later the studies contributed to the Space Shuttlewhich in turn motivated the Russian Buran. No images of the vehicle configuration have been released. The Northrop HL, Northrop M2-F2 and Northrop M2-F3 were examples of a lifting body which are aircraft which have very little if any wing and simply obtain lift from the body of the vehicle.
Another example is backslider rockets in amateur rocketry. The EZ-Rocket research and test airplane was first flown in EZ-Rocket was the first privately built and flown rocket-powered airplane.
A second privately developed rocket-powered aircraft flew just two years later, in SpaceShipOne functions both as a rocket-powered aircraft—with wings and aerodynamic control surfaces —as well as a spaceplane —with RCS thrusters for control in the vacuum of space. The Rocket Leben - Nino De Angelo - Jenseits Von Eden League has developed three rocket racer aircraft sinceafter initially evaluating and testing the EZ-Rocket in None are currently in production however.
