A common ongoing debate within the aviation community is centered around flight instruments. Specifically, the comparison between the modern glass cockpit and the ‘old school’ six pack. A glass cockpit is an aircraft cockpit that features electronic or digital flight instrument displays, and typically large LCD screens. This differs from the classic six pack, which is composed of the traditional style analog dials and gauges, nicknamed ‘steam gauges.’ The six pack, which comprises the airspeed indicator, altimeter, vertical speed indicator, attitude indicator, heading indicator, and turn coordinator, has been in use for years, and remains a good option. However, glass cockpits represent the future of aviation. This blog will explain the main differences between these modern and classic instrumentation systems.

When boarding a plane, you’re likely not thinking about all the things that can go wrong. While you’re trying to occupy your mind with any other thought or contemplating the airy temperature in the cabin, the pilot is currently being vigilant of those very thoughts most passengers want to avoid. Aircraft skidding is one of those concerns. Though rarely heard of, aircrafts do have a risk of skidding when driving or landing on a runway. Thankfully, there are ways to mitigate this risk and methods on how to control the skid when it does happen. Read more about it in the article below. 

When travelling across the country or across the globe, there is no safer method of transportation than flying. This is due to rigorous standards that have been developed and refined over the years, ensuring safety and quality of aircraft and their procedures. In this blog, we will discuss why it is important to have such civil aviation standards in place, as well as the entities that spearhead the safety of air travel.

Flight instruments and navigation equipment are a critical part of safe flight. Parts such as the airspeed indicator, tachometer indicator, flap position indicator, temperature indicator, encoding altimeter, aircraft compass, and many more, have an important role to play. This blog will explain the main flight instruments and navigation tools, how they work, and why they are so important.

Electrical preventive maintenance (EPM) is among the most important tasks to perform in order to ensure the reliability and performance of electrical distribution systems, the longevity of machine service life, and the safety of personnel. It is particularly important in regard to overcurrent protection devices. For instance, in a circuit breaker, an unintentional time delay caused by a sticky operating mechanism can result in a dramatic and dangerous rise in energy. Despite this, electrical preventive maintenance is often done infrequently, inadequately, or overlooked completely.

After the first heavier-than-air powered flight conducted by the Wright brothers in 1903, aviation technology quickly began to develop through World War I and well beyond. Initially, aircraft technology and capabilities were very limited, and thus flight proved to be fairly dangerous. As aviation grew more commercial, industry leaders called for the government to create and maintain safety standards for the growth of the industry as a whole. With the establishment and governing of administrations such as the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), airworthiness and safety of parts could be mandated through the use of standards such as the Technical Standard Order (TSO). Technical Standard Orders dictate a minimum performance standard that parts, materials, and appliances that are to be installed on civil aircraft must meet. In this blog, we will discuss Technical Standard Orders more in detail, exploring how they are approved and taken away, among other regulations and policies.

Oftentimes people get confused between the terms wires and cables, and will sometimes use them interchangeably. The truth is that they are distinctly different in that the former is a single electrical conductor, while the latter is a cluster of wires covered in a protective sheath. Below, you can read more about the different types of electrical cables there are in the market and which ones might suit you best.

The history of flight and aircraft spans across thousands of years, progressing from simple kites to the full fledged aircraft that we know and rely on today. While flight and aircraft as we are familiar with have existed for over 100 years now, it may be surprising that aircraft as a method of commercial transportation is a fairly new addition to our society that is still developing. In this blog, we will discuss the rise of commercial aviation through modern history.

The flight simulator market is estimated to have a growth from $5.7 billion to $7.7 billion from 2019 to 2025, all with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.2%. The reason for this is because of the ever expanding aerospace industry and its needs. From the rises in commercial aircraft deliveries to increases in passenger air traffic, the need for more highly trained pilots is consistently growing. With flight simulators, pilots can safely, efficiently, and cheaply be trained and obtain expertise. Flight simulators also aid in accident investigation, which has seen an increase of interest with the new technological abilities simulators provide.

According to the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) – the leading voice in consumer electronics and technology forecasting – consumer technology retail revenue alone will reach a staggering bracket of $400 billion US dollars. So how does a fairly new industry compared to staple industries like agriculture or healthcare, keep up with the big red ball racing down the mountain that is technology?
