In the world of aviation, safety is the number one priority; thus, airplanes are designed and equipped with various precautionary measures. For instance, plastic all-weather carry cases, fiberglass containers, or canvas holdalls that store life rafts are supplied on board. Life rafts are incredibly handy during some over-water operations and incidents, ensuring that passengers and air crew can be evacuated with ease.

Across all parts of a typical aircraft, the engine mount can be considered one of the most crucial assemblies, serving to support the engine and all other power plant components. Without an engine mount, the aircraft engine and all other related components would be subject to major undue stress, leading to increased wear and tear, among other hazards. Despite engine mounts being well-designed and securely attached to the frame through bolting, such assemblies face major stresses ranging from load-bearing forces to extreme heat. As such, they need to be inspected and repaired on a regular basis so that they can remain reliable with ample integrity. To help you better manage your engine mount(s), we will discuss their care in more detail below.

As aircraft operate at high altitudes, they must be pressurized or have breathable oxygen provided for the safety of passengers and aircrew alike. If such heights pose safety risks for humans, then why do we fly so high? First, airplanes at high altitudes consume less fuel for a given airspeed than they do for the same speed at lower altitudes, making it more efficient to soar high. Second, bad weather and unprecedented turbulence can be avoided by flying in the smooth air above dangerous weather patterns closer to the surface.

Propellers, or props for short, are one of the most misunderstood aircraft devices. While it may be obvious to some, aircraft propellers are designed to transfer the engine’s horsepower into thrust by moving large amounts of air to the rear of the airplane. Upon looking at a propeller blade cross section, you will realize that it actually serves as the airfoil of an aircraft. Looking more closely, the airfoil section varies with each blade to provide the most efficient AOA (angle of attack) for both rotational and forward speed. The thickest part of the blade’s airfoil is at the propeller hub which tapers down to the tip, reflecting the range of airspeeds the blade experiences in operation.

Of all airplane components, one of the most fascinating and complex aircraft parts are jet engines. Early jet engines included turbojets, while more modern aircraft use turbofans. Regardless of the variations in design, jet engines are giant pieces of machinery that generate incredible thrust to power aircraft. They draw in large amounts of air, mix parts of this air with fuel, and expel the resulting gasses out of their backside to move both the engine and the aircraft forwards. This blog will explore the way jet engines have performed this function over time and the way jet engine designs inform their functions.

Connectors are essential electromechanical devices used to create electrical circuits by joining two or more conductors. Due to the significant variations in applications and conductor configuration, connectors are incredibly diverse and are often designed to fit particular requirements. However, one design characteristic that is universal among connectors is the male and female ports, in which one side of the interconnect features outward-facing pins, whereas the opposite end is designed to accept those pins. One of the most common wire types in the world is the coaxial cable, which is ubiquitous in telecommunications. In order for these cables to effectively transmit signals over long distances without loss, they require a specialized BNC connector. In this blog, we will discuss the design characteristics and function of the widely used BNC class of connectors.

Since the inception of aviation in the early 20th century, the industry has relied strictly upon fossil fuels as a substrate for propulsion. While aircraft have adopted more fuel-efficient designs over the years, and engine technology has improved immensely, aviation still accounts for a non-negligible amount of CO2 produced each year. These carbon emissions are damaging to the environment, and with many countries creating a regulatory setting that favors green energy, it may become very costly for airlines to continue to operate in such a manner. One solution that is gaining popularity which boasts academic and commercial interest is electrification, which aims to replace longstanding fossil-fuel-driven engines with fully electric models. In this blog, we will discuss the push toward electrification in aviation and the challenges associated with its implementation.
