Preventing Rapid Decompression In Commercial Airliners


In Flight Airline Rapid Decompression Breached Window(Airline Safety)Here is a concept worthy of mention about the issues concerning Airline International Terrorists and Guns in the Cockpit and of course Federal Air Marshals. If a gun goes off in a smaller airliner, 737 or 767 then a bullet could penetrate a window and breach the pressurization system.

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.

Pay. You know that aviation pays better than commercial, in most cases a lot better, but you aren't sure what the going rate is for a corporate flight attendant.

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.

Floatplanes With Superhydrophobic Nanostructures Coatings
As a designer and innovator type, I often see applications for new scientific research and discoveries. I'd like to explain what I mean with a little example if I might. In this case study, I will be discussing float planes and sea planes, specifically how to make them safer and more efficient. 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.

How does this work you ask?

This may sound complicated, but it really isn't and there are many patents explaining how this works if you do a Google Patent Search - each one refers to the others.

Best Explanation of PW 100 Engine & Its Parts
PW 100 series of engines are the forefront in modern, state of the art regional and commuter turboprop engines. With its three spool design, easy to maintain modular construction, and high power rating, the engine is a logical choice for medium to large turboprops including the Bombardier Q400, DeHavilland Dash 8 and Embraer EMB 120. Some consider the PW 100 to be the replacement to the venerable PT6, but in reality the PW 100 picks up where the PT6 Large version left off in terms of power, fuel economy, and reliability. The PW 100 series consists of a number of variations. There is no actual PW 100 engine; the engines start with the PW118 engine and end at the PW127J.

An Aircraft Detailer's Dream - No Bug Stick Wings
It seems like a thousand years ago when I started my first real business washing aircraft at age 12. It turned out to be a very astute business decision in hindsight. Still, as a 12-year old it was really hard work, and I can remember scrubbing the bugs off the leading edge and wings of small light aircraft and business jets. Then I'd have to wax them really good to help me get the new bugs off next time I washed the same aircraft.
