Once flight is achieved, aircraft flight controls give a pilot the ability to direct an aircraft. In this article, we will go over primary flight control and secondary flight control systems to give an overview of how flight control systems accomplish aerial navigation. Aircraft flight control systems are comprised of aircraft control surfaces, cockpit controls, connecting linkages and various operating mechanisms such as flaperon parts, bellcranks, pulleys and cables.

While flying is an exceedingly safe means of travel, aircraft manufacturers have to expect the unexpected. Even in the event of total engine failure, aircraft can glide for impressive distances. However, in order to land the aircraft safely, a power source is needed to operate the flight controls. This is where ram air turbines (RATs) come in. RAT systems, a product of Hamilton Sundstrand, can provide emergency power in the event of engine, hydraulic, or electrical failure. Available in hydraulic, electric, and hybrid models, RATs have become a standard of backup systems in modern day aircraft whether it be business, regional, large commercial jets, or military.

If you own a small or large private airline company, then you will need to rely on a responsible crew to handle all aspects involved with FBO. FBO refers to fixed base operators, or the organization that is granted the right by the airport to provide services like fueling, hangaring, tie-down and parking, aircraft rental, and other services on the aircraft. Overall they provide various services depending on the demand from the airport and its base.

An aircraft propellor is extremely pertinent to its ability to fly, transforming rotational energy into propulsion and thrust that drives the vehicle forward. Variable pitch propellers are a special type of propeller that allows for the change of the blade angle during flight, opening up new abilities to increase performance. In this blog, we will provide a short overview of the functionality of variable pitch propellers, as well as their benefit to the aircraft they are fitted on.

Out of every component on an aircraft, the propellers are often the most stressed part, facing around 10 to 25 tons of centrifugal force during normal operation. Because of this stress and wear, it is very important to conduct regular inspections and maintenance of propellers. With proper maintenance, aircraft propellers will see the longest amount of life expectancy and save money.

O-rings are a vital component for numerous types of fluid power applications. If improperly installed however, an o-ring seal can fail, which can lead to leaks and system failures. Therefore, to meet strict industry standards, o-ring production is extremely careful in terms of design, choice of materials, and installation procedures. The three most important things to do when installing a new o-ring seal is to ensure that the seal is well-lubricated, that it is the right size, and that it has been designed with the application in mind.

Modern automobiles feature countless electrical systems, such as the horn, headlights, fan motors, and auxiliary lamps. Obviously, all these systems need power, and that power needs to be regulated and controlled. This is where relays come in. Relay switches controlled by electrical power, with the purpose of automating this power to switch electrical circuits on and off at particular times. Relays can also switch multiple circuits, including different voltage types, within the same relay at the same time.

When it comes to removing old finishes, getting rid of rust and corrosion, or preparing a surface for painting, abrasive blasting is often an ideal and efficient solution. By choosing the right material, or ‘media,’ for abrasive blasting, you can save time and money on otherwise intensive cleaning. In this blog, we’ll break down some of the most common blast media, as well as the types of projects they’re best suited for.

A fixed-base operator (FBO), is defined as an organization that has been granted the right to operate at a particular airport and perform aeronautical services: such as aircraft maintenance, tie-down and parking, fueling, hangaring, flight instruction, and many more services. An FBO is typically the primary provider of general aviation support services and is usually located onsite at the airport.

Today we’re focusing on the basic design of propeller blades. The use of propeller propulsion systems extends over a century and have paved the way for modern air travel as we know it. Let’s take a look at how standard propeller blade design helps to creates sufficient airflow in order to generate lift.
