Physics is the science that aims to describe and quantify natural phenomena. While some argue that physics is the science upon which every other discipline is built, there is no doubt that it is of predominant concern in aviation. In fact, every second of a flight can be modeled and described using the concepts of physics. If you are interested in aviation, this blog will prime you on some essential physics ideas on how engineered flight is achieved.
Removing an aircraft's engine is not an easy feat. In fact, releasing a single engine on a Boeing 747 requires over 30,000 connections to be undone, and any mistake could lead to costly damages. When is it then appropriate or necessary to remove an aircraft's engine for replacement or repair? In this blog, we will highlight some of the circumstances in which it is required to remove this critical component.
A helicopter is a common form of rotary-wing aircraft, capable of generating the lift and thrust needed for flight with the use of horizontally-spinning rotors. With such vehicles, pilots may achieve vertical takeoffs and landings, hover in the air, and fly forward, backward, and laterally as desired. With these capabilities, the helicopter may be operated in countless areas and dense cities where a conventional fixed-wing aircraft would be unsuitable. In order to achieve the various flight capabilities of a standard helicopter, pilots rely on a set of controls that enable management of flight systems, surfaces, and more. In this blog, we will discuss the four main controls of a helicopter, those of which are the collective pitch control, throttle control, antitorque control, and cyclic pitch control.
Lift is the aerodynamic force that allows for aircraft to fly, resulting from the shape of wings as the fluid pressure of air will begin to differ on the top and bottom of the aerofoil during forward movement. While wings are the primary structure relied on for achieving and maintaining lift, high-lift devices are components or mechanisms that may be added onto an aircraft wing for the means of increasing the amount of lift produced. Increased lift can be very useful in many situations, allowing a pilot to lift off with reduced speeds and distances, or safely land in a similar fashion. Coming in a variety of forms which present varying characteristics and uses, it is important that any current or prospective pilot is familiar with the most common types.
During flight, aircraft tend to operate at extreme altitudes in which low air pressure and oxygen density is prevalent. If crew members and passengers are exposed to such conditions without ample protection, hypoxia can quickly ensue. To keep all individuals aboard an aircraft safe and comfortable, various oxygen systems may be used. While many airliners and business jets will utilize pressurized cabins and their related oxygen systems, other aircraft require different solutions that often come in the form of portable oxygen units. As there are multiple portable oxygen systems that provide different functionalities, it can be highly beneficial to understand each.
