An inlet ramp for an aircraft engine is constructed as a movable panel which is internally cooled by fluid coolant. At a selected time, the coolant flow is terminated allowing the panel to overheat and melt away so as to expose an underlayer of ablative material. The ablative material then begins to melt away thereby cooling the underlying surface of the aircraft via ablation.
A cooling system for high speed aircraft, comprising: first cooling mean provided on said aircraft for cooling a surface portion of said aircraft; and ablative cooling means provided on said aircraft adjacent said first cooling means, said ablative cooling means being drivably movable with respect to said aircraft such that upon deactivation of said first cooling means and upon controlled driven movement of said ablative cooling means, said ablative cooling means undergoes ablation.
