Airlines, Price Wars, and Branding


Here are some thoughts on the study of the theory of price wars as they relate to the industries like the Airlines and others. Comments on an article in Harvard Business Review in March-April edition 2000.

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.

General Aviation Manufacturing is in the Tank; Hang On It is Going to Get Worse


Change is a constant, Outsourcing Jobs, Capital flows, Emerging Markets are a given and this includes the Aviation Manufacturing Sector as we watch the current Migration pick up speed.It appears that the technological advantage that we have here in the United States is no longer going to sustain us without further advances.

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.

Entering Business Aviation, Part II: Pay Rates for Flight Attendants


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.

Entering Business Aviation, Part III: Training Options


Time for some training! So, you are not sure what type of training you will need or how it compares to the commercial side of aviation. For starters, there are some very big differences.

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.
