Adequate aircraft maintenance is a necessary task incumbent upon those who own or operate such vessels. Aviation is by far the safest form of transportation due to the endless amount of stringent regulations set forward by the FAA and other agencies. However, this safety is only made possible through diligent adherence to those mandates by aircraft owners. With that background in mind, one may wonder if there are any important considerations when choosing a maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) facility to perform service on their aircraft. In this blog, we will discuss the various things to look for when choosing an MRO facility in order to establish its reputability and fit with your requirements.
Preheating aircraft engines is extremely important. Giving a cold start to the engine without preheating causes much more wear and tear than 1000 hours of runtime will. Or worse, it could lead to engine failure after take-off. While the term preheating might sound like it is just about increasing an engine’s oil temperature, it is more than that. It involves heating the entire engine to bring all working components up to an optimal and safe temperature range.
When a flight ends, a commercial aircraft will need to rapidly be cleaned, inspected, and prepared for the next set of passengers in a process known as a turnaround. To ensure smooth flights with no delays, the aircraft turnaround process must be minimal while ensuring all regulations and procedures are met. In this blog, we will discuss the efficiency of aircraft turnaround operations and how such processes can be safely improved.
Welding is a fabrication method that is often used to join metals and thermoplastics together, relying on high heat to conjoin parts through fusion. Welding is practiced for the manufacturing of countless assemblies, even finding many uses in the realm of aviation for aircraft part construction. Despite this, there are certain areas of an aircraft in which welding cannot be used, necessitating a reliance on fasteners and other solutions for securing assemblies. In this blog, we will discuss the most common aircraft parts and sections that cannot be welded, allowing you to better be aware of the limitations of such practices in the aerospace industry.
Airplanes are some of the most meticulously designed vehicles in engineering. While it is easy to appreciate the apparent flight control surfaces like the wings, elevators, and rudder, hundreds of other equally important components in the plane's interior contribute to safe operation. In this blog, we will be discussing the design and function of an aircraft's various bulkheads.
When it comes down to the different components within an electric flight power system, connectors may be one of the most important. Connectors are used to connect batteries to speed controls, and speed controls to motors. Performance can be severely impacted by these connections, and poor connections can rob the systems of power, cause a meltdown, or result in a fire.
Aircraft can come in many shapes and sizes, accommodating particular design requirements, applications, and needs. When observing various aircraft, you may have noticed that some airliners feature a lower tailplane while others may have what is known as a T-tail. While differing from a majority of designs found on commercial airliners, these T-tails serve a significant role in flight.
In order for a local area network to relay data packets between devices, a component known as a network switch is often used. Unlike a router that may manage data across multiple devices and networks simultaneously, a network switch is specifically intended for directing data towards a single device. In this blog, we will discuss network switches, their common types, and uses, allowing you to better understand typical network configurations and assemblies.
