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.

Airbus has today released its third-quarter financial results. Like all companies across the aviation industry, the European plane manufacturer has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic in addition to the sudden lack of demand for new commercial aircraft.

From this point the innovation in the steam engine made it to the ICE or the internal combustion engine. The ICE has revolutionized the world transportation until now. This type of engine is first type in our story of aircraft propulsion.

The basis of designing anything comes from the goal of this product. Such as the goal of an aircraft is to transport people from point A to point B in an easy and efficient way while flying in the air. Then looking on any previous or existing designs which will aid the upcoming new one. After that engineers apply the fundamentals of the science behind building up an aircraft.

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.

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.

The GE9X one of the biggest and most powerful engine for any aircraft has been manufactured as well as developed by GE Aviation ( General Electric ) specially designed for the 777X, this engine type is now certified from the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA).

It’s not easy being a pilot, one mistake and it’s game over. Studies have shown that certain attitudes can interfere with a pilot’s better judgment and they are called “hazardous” attitudes for a reason. What makes them a real issue is that sometimes these attitudes are part of someone’s personality and that is not something a person can easily shake off. That is why pilots are incredible people because not only do they study and train hard for their career, they also need to have great self-control and the ability to change major aspects of their personalities to become better pilots. So what are the 5 hazardous attitudes that if not addressed will make a bad pilot?
