Cirrus Vision Jet: The World’s Most Popular Private Jet

The Cirrus Vision Jet is a one-of-a-kind personal jet that doesn’t fit any of the pre-existing jet categories. It was built with the Cirrus pilot in mind, created to burn about half the fuel of a light jet and be cheaper than the single-engine turboprops that can’t fly as high or fast. The Vision JetContinue reading “Cirrus Vision Jet: The World’s Most Popular Private Jet”

SR-71 Blackbird: The jet that could outfly a bullet and a missile

The Lockheed SR-71 “Blackbird” is a long-range, high-altitude, Mach 3+ strategic reconnaissance aircraft developed and manufactured by Lockheed Martin’s Skunk Works, which has a hard-earned reputation for making the impossible happen.

Fuel Servicing of Aircraft

Many of us have seen tanker trucks around when the aircraft is on the ground and think about the type of supply they are loading on the plane. Fueling servicing is only one part of Aircraft ground handling when the plane is at the terminal gate of the airport. The fuel servicing may be performedContinue reading “Fuel Servicing of Aircraft”

Reverse Thrust: An Essential Deceleration Mechanism

Function: Reverse thrust is thrust projected in the opposite direction to provide an opposing, decelerating force on the plane’s direction of travel. It is used to decelerate an aircraft after landing, in the event of a rejected take off or, in some limited cases, during push-back from the gate. This system can be either hydraulicallyContinue reading “Reverse Thrust: An Essential Deceleration Mechanism”

The Satellite That Started the Space Race

Right now, satellites surround our planet, nearly 6,000, circle the earth, with huge constellations and different features. Even some of unknown functions. However, these objects have improved the quality and technology in home as we may notice. We would not be surprised that Newton devised the idea because of the universal gravity force, and hisContinue reading “The Satellite That Started the Space Race”

The smallest acrobatic microjet

It is not necessary to look like a mighty fighter to be an aviation gymnast and reach incredibly high speeds. This is a light bullet that can be manned by daredevils due to the high acrobatic performance only awarded by fighter jets. Just seeing how this plane flies is shocking because of its small size.Continue reading “The smallest acrobatic microjet”
