A pilot has many factors to monitor when operating aircraft, as taking flight can be dangerous if not handled with precision. This being said, some aircraft have more complex features than others, requiring additional measures for safety, such as the tail camera that is featured on many larger modern aircraft. Popular components of some of Airbus’s more recent widebody designs, aircraft tail cameras offer an additional angle from which pilots can monitor their aircraft before, during, and after flight. Although tail cameras are not integral to all aircraft, they are useful additions to certain plane designs for a few reasons. As such, we will cover the purpose of aircraft tail cameras below.

While the passenger loading ramp is now a common staple of commercial aviation that many are familiar with, such amenities were not always available. Prior to the 1997 FAA mandate for dignified access to commercial aircraft, passengers often needed to board aircraft using the built-in staircases that were present on various models. Now, passengers must be provided a boarding ramp to enter an aircraft, bolstering accessibility and ease-of-boarding for both those with special needs and anyone else.

While many may be familiar with the ejection seats and parachutes present in various aircraft that pilots use in emergency situations, some may not be familiar with whole-airframe parachutes that help set the entire aircraft down. Airframe parachutes are not the most common type of emergency equipment, generally only being found on models made by Cirrus Aircraft, serving as one of their driving forces of popularity. These aircraft are primarily single-engine models, being light enough to take advantage of an aircraft parachute.

Like their namesake, sandwich panels are made up of several pieces that make up a single unit. Composed of three layers, any structure can be considered a sandwich panel as long as it has a low-density core, and two thin layers or sheets of material which can be bonded to both sides of the core. Used wherever high structural rigidity and low weight are needed, these components are commonly applied within aerospace apparatuses, turbines, automobiles, and watercraft.

Aircraft experience a lot of stress, facing strain from takeoff to landing and the time in between. Fortunately, there are a number of safety measures set in place to ensure an aircraft is working optimally. One of these safety measures, while small, packs quite the punch. A safety wire, or locking wire, is an integral part of aviation maintenance and performance. Since many are unfamiliar with the importance of such a device, this blog will cover what it is and what it does.

Flying in an aircraft is statistically one of the safest methods of traveling when compared to automobiles and other powered vehicles, and this is due to the intensive regulations and standards that they are held to during production, testing, operation, maintenance, and so much more. As an aircraft typically operates at very high altitudes where environmental conditions may be extreme, in order to withstand intensive pressures and other physical forces, rigorous, advanced materials are used to promote safety, longevity, and integrity. At the same time, it is important that the aircraft is made from lightweight materials for an efficient fuel economy. To meet such demands, while also accounting for things such as temperature fluctuations, materials such as aluminum honeycomb are commonly used for modern aircraft design.

Advances in semiconductor technology have helped propel the capabilities of electronic devices across a wide variety of industries. Their small size and dual conductor-insulator action allow for accurate and creative current management solutions. One such device that has been widely adopted is the optocoupler or opt isolator. These components, which are primarily found in noise-sensitive and low voltage applications, provide circuit isolation and noise reduction. In this blog, we will discuss the operating principle behind optocouplers, as well as their design and variants.

The life of an aircraft engine is not as easy as we may think, and several factors are put into consideration while determining the aircraft's serviceable life. During the internal combustion process, the metal structures inside aircraft engines undergo many heating and cooling cycles. These cycles are responsible for causing metals to degrade over time. The design of aircraft engines allows expansion to be tolerated after the operating temperature range has been achieved. To prevent major damage, aircraft engines are generally designed with the ability to expand for tolerating operating temperatures.
