Aircraft Icing

major weather hazards that cause a number of aircraft accidents. It is a hazard that can snowball out of control and cause problems such as reduce aircraft efficiency by increasing weight, reduce lift, decrease thrust and increase drag. These effects can cause the aircraft to increase stalling speed or cause the aircraft to force downward in flight. Over the years, aircraft engines and airframes have changed dramatically. Modern day aircraft are aerodynamically less accepting of airfoil...

Construction and Design of Modern Aircraft

1 Contemporary Methods of Aircraft Construction and Design The construction of aircraft is a complicated process requiring precise calculation and innovative design in order to improve and maintain the structural integrity of the aircraft. Aerospace engineers must find a balance between reliability, strength and weight of the many components used in the fabrication of the aircraft. The design of an aircraft must take into account the magnitude of forces, such as lift and drag, acting upon the...

why do aircraft crash

tragedy in Irkutsk is due only to Russian disorder: such a catastrophe could have taken place in any country and involved any aircraft. This is proved by the statistics. Hundreds of planes crash during landing or take-off claiming the lives of hundreds of passengers in many counties in Asia, Africa, Europe, and America. What is happening? Experts believe that today's aircraft are designed the way that a man's error is inevitable in an emergency situation. Obviously, no constructor can ackowledge the...

Aircraft Systems and the Importance of Pilot Training

Aircraft Systems and the Importance of Pilot Training The operation and maintaining of an aircraft comes with many responsibilities and obligations. This is especially true when running a scheduled airline operating under 14 C.F.R. Part 121. When under these rules, profit margins can be very thin and a manager must be able to lead the airline through some very difficult economic circumstances. Many of these operating procedures can be streamlined through proper pilot training and proper utilization...
