Hypersonic or Ultrasonic Sound to Disrupt Laser Beam Attack on Commercial Airliners


In large buildings to prevent sound pollution often double paned glass is used with music or flowing air between the panes, this works very well and is sufficient to prevent the noise. Since many commercial airliners have double paned glass already if we are careful to watch the harmonics as to not cause structural problems to the aircraft (remember the Comet), then we propose hypersound or ultrasonic sound within the panes to prevent laser light from entering the cockpit and inhibiting or blinding the pilots.

Airline Fuel Costs Mount


The airlines are huge users of fuel. Fuel costs are higher than even the cost of the aircraft.

Find Cheap Tickets From all the Major Airlines


All of the major airlines are now associated with different web sites allowing for you to find discount airfare and cheap tickets on the internet. One of the reasons the airlines have done this is because so many people now have access to computers and the internet.

Case For Removing Ejection Seats From The F-22 And F-35 Discussed - Common Sense
In years gone by the US Navy and Air Force said that the cost to train a pilot is very expensive and human pilots are the most important part of the aircraft. While that is very true, today our most expensive fighter and attack aircraft are over $100,000,000.00 each. With a cost like that you can be sure that the taxpayer doesn't want a pilot to eject unless it is 'absolutely necessary' and the aircraft cannot be landed without total destruction. If there is a chance, even a slim chance that the aircraft can be brought back and crash landed, preventing it from being a total loss, the military pilot should risk his/her/its life to do so, if they perish in the attempt, at least they tried.

Each time you make an aircraft more efficient, you add to its performance, and this directly translates to lower fuel consumption, thus, greater range, faster climb rate, or lower weight, meaning greater payload. It's just an all-around good thing.

The economic crashes of 2000 and 2008 didn't help, although in 2003 the economy was flying high thanks to Bush Tax Cuts and stimulus, then it hit a wall again and didn't really do well until the run-up just before the 2008 crash.
