The hole is actually an important component of the window, and contrary to what you might have thought it did, the hole actually helps the safety of the window. In this article, we will be discussing the function of the hole and what it actually does.

Flight schools around the world use various types of trainer aircraft. In this article I will mention few of the best aircraft for training. Flight schools choose their aircraft according to what suits their training and vision. Nonetheless, all trainer airplanes are designed specifically to assist with the flight training of pilots and aircrew. Private and Commercial pilots are usually trained in light aircraft, with two or more seats for the students and instructors. What are few of the best trainer airplanes out there?

Have you ever wondered how WIFI works on a plane? How does a plane have an internet connection thousands of feet up in the sky when even a phone doesn’t have cellular data or any type of service? Furthermore, how is this connection strong enough to accommodate the hundreds of passengers onboard? Internet connection on a plane is a revolutionary invention and an astonishing breakthrough in air travel. In this article, we will explain how WIFI works on a plane and answer questions raised from this invention.

Colonel Merryl Tengesdal, born in the Bronx, New York, in 1971 was the first and only African American woman to fly the United States Air Force’s U-2 spy plane, the unique and famous aircraft used to spy and reconnaissance flown in the Cold War over the Soviet Union, China, Vietnam, and Cuba. Merryl overcame and broke down barriers in more ways than one. She has accomplished what seemed like a mission impossible, to be in Air force being a pilot working for the spy missions and risky operations overseas.

Let’s just say it like it is, not everyone can be a pilot. It’s not easy, there are certain requirements not everyone possess. It’s nothing personal, for example, I can’t be a pharmacist or a lawyer? It makes sense, it’s too late, I’ve already made my “life” choice. Wait, why can’t I be a pharmacist? I can be a lawyer if I wanted to. It’ll take a lot of time and effort but if I’m passionate about it, I can easily do it. You know what? anyone can be a pilot. Still though, like any career choice in the world, there are a list of requirements you’d need to fill.

Google it, if you want. Write “What’s the safest mode of travel?”, you’ll instantly know that flying is the safest way. Some of you will think “that can’t be true”, while others will say “that makes sense”. The actual question is, “really? Prove it”. I will prove to you that despite the various ways to visit far away places, whether on the road or over the sea, the safest way to do it is flying.

The story of the two US Navy pilots, Lt. Cody and Ensign Adams, who disappeared into thin air. After 78 years, what happened to these men remains a mystery. There were various theories and suggestions about how the scene was played in the blimp, but nonetheless, remained theories and suggestions since nothing was confirmed.

Emirates has recently welcomed their first of the three Airbus A380’s which will be joining up with the carrier’s operations this month. One of them will be featuring the premium economy product. Carriers within the Gulf region have been famous for not being fans of having premium economy seats on their aircraft, instead, they prefer standard economy throughout as they move towards business class and first-class.

As we all usually know that fighter pilots work in a cramped cockpit and modern fighters do not have more person space. The developers of modern fighter jets such as the F-16 and the F-35 made the cockpit extremely small and the average height of design is around 5’10 to 6’2 and 210 pounds .

We already know what VFR stands for, visual flight rules, but what is Special VFR? First, let’s recap, visual flight rules (VFR) is a set of rules under which a pilot operates an aircraft in generally fair weather where the pilot can clearly see where the plane is going. Generally, the basic VFR minimums are, visibility should be at least 3 statute miles and distance from clouds should be 500ft below, 1000ft above, and 2000ft horizontal. So, what’s the difference between basic VFR and Special VFR? What makes it so special?

I know what you’re thinking: Flying cars have a history? Do they even exist? At least that’s what I also thought, and it turns out it’s a long one. It starts in 1917 with Glenn Curtiss, who built the Curtiss autoplane, a combination between an automobile and an airplane, it was something unheard of back then. It looked like a car but with wings attached, so obviously, it never flew. It was only capable of making “short hops”. The good news is that it was the first stepping stone towards the exploration of the possibility of having flying cars in the future.

Even the name sounds awesome, Supermarine Spitfire, no offence Boeing, you’re still my favorite aircraft, love you. Anyway, the amazing Supermarine Spitfire is a British single-seat fighter aircraft, it was used by the Royal Air Force and the other Allied countries before, during, and after WWII. It’s extremely famous, I would be really surprised if you didn’t know about it, I personally found out about the aircraft a week ago. So let us learn more about this incredible aircraft that defeated the German air attacks during the battle of Britain together.

What is risk management? it is the vital process of making constructive and effective decisions. It includes two frequently-used tools: PAVE and the 5Ps. I chose to write, in detail, about the 5Ps checklist because I simply prefer it and feel it pays attention to the smallest detail. This checklist is crucial for the flight and that is why a pilot goes through it thoroughly. But why is it so important? Because it helps the pilot make fundamental and careful conclusions.

In the history of aviation, the goal to fly vertically was not far away from application. The world’s first practical vertical flight other than hot air balloons was accomplished by Igor Sikorsky who was the designer and the pilot for VS-300 helicopter. The design was using a single main rotor and single tail rotor.

Pilots need to have great self-awareness; they need to understand what they’re capable of. Each flight is different, so while pilots do a thorough check of their aircraft, they must also evaluate their fitness for the flight. They must create a checklist to help them understand if whether or not they are prepared for that specific flight. They have checklists for everything and for this particular assessment they have the I’M SAFE checklist to fully understand their capabilities for flight.

As airports all around the globe become nearly as dense as a seaport, the layout of them has been evolved and changed to create the momentum for the passengers to travel easily and have a better experience. The layout of the airport starting from the main entrance and ending with entering the airplane. The designs have been filled with alot of modern technology to achieve the most comfort throughout the airport.
