Aircraft maneuver their way through different parts of flight, they must move their various control surfaces accordingly, such as the ailerons and rudders. With controls for such parts located in the cockpit, the pilot can manually operate all of the control surfaces, however fly-by-wire exists in most modern aircraft to reduce the pilot’s responsibility. With many benefits for both the pilot and the flight, fly-by-wire has replaced mechanical and hydraulic systems in the majority of aircraft, from military planes to commercial jets. As such, this blog will offer a look at how this came to be and why fly-by-wire is such a popular choice.

While drones have taken the consumer market by storm in recent years, such aerial vehicles find use in many industries such as agriculture, science, and photography. Much of the rising popularity of drones is a result of their various advancements and more prices, allowing many industries and individuals to harness their capabilities to improve a wide variety of activities. While drones may vary in their construction and design based on the application they are to serve and how advanced they are made to be, many consumer drones utilize a similar set of materials and parts. In this blog, we will discuss the anatomy of consumer drones in brief detail, allowing you to have a better understanding of these intricate vehicles.

When working with various instruments used for measuring values and troubleshooting in industrial applications, it is important that they are well calibrated for the means of ensuring accurate results and readings. Deviations in calibration can occur as a result of various reasons, and it is important that they are addressed before the instrument is used. Incorrect readings and measurements can lead to losses in performance, accidents, and much more as systems and components function differently than intended.

Aviation industries are highly regulated, ensuring the utmost safety of operations and the personnel that carry them out. While various initiatives have been spearheaded by regulating bodies and governments, aviation manufacturers have also been making strides with high-caliber systems and components that have come about over the years. One such company that is noted for its endeavors to improve safety is Honeywell Aerospace, that of which is a subsidiary of the American company Honeywell International Inc. To help you better understand their efforts for aviation safety, we will discuss some examples of their useful technology.

Pilots undergo vigorous training to learn how to fly a plane, and they have to undergo upwards of 1,500 hours of training to master take-offs, landings, and other such maneuvers to make the flight as comfortable for passengers as possible. However, apart from pilots, there is something else on which the success of take-offs and landings depends--shock-absorbing tires. The tires of an airplane hit the runway repeatedly when the plane is landing at a speed of 180 miles an hour and have to bear almost 40,000 kilograms of weight while on a ground surface. As a result, they are rigorously designed for reliability and performance that is necessary for ground operations.

Ground support equipment heats quickly during operation, so summers bring greater risks for safe and proper functioning. Equipment and personnel alike may function less efficiently in high heat, so some measures should be taken to ensure such vital parts of air travel work year-round. For the machinery in particular, a ground support equipment cooling system should be operated in the summer to prevent overheating.

Due to their high efficiency and robustness, piston pumps find use in a wide range of applications. A piston pump is a type of reciprocating pump that is utilized to displace liquids or compressed gasses from one point to another. The piston moves up and down in the compression cylinder, and it is connected with a crankshaft that is supplied power by an electric motor to drive the piston. They are particularly useful in applications where there is a requirement of high consistent pressure.

Flying a drone is a difficult task and tracking its orientation is quite challenging, especially for new pilots. If you are not an experienced pilot, then you might get confused with the drone’s orientation during flight. The headless mode of a drone makes flight easy by maintaining its orientation in the right direction. In this blog, we will discuss the headless mode on drones–a featured flight mode that helps pilots demonstrate a drones orientation easily.

When one is operating a Cessna, Piper, or other small aircraft with a conventional aero gas engine, there will most likely be a mixture control element present in the cockpit. With this control, pilots have the ability to adjust the fuel-and-air ratio in the carburetor, as well as stop the engine when the flight concludes. While some aircraft will automatically adjust mixtures, others may provide manual control for the benefit of various flight operations and needs. In this blog, we will discuss the leaning of aircraft engines, that of which is when the amount of air in the mixture is higher than standard operating ratios.
