Performance of the Jet Transport Airplane: Analysis Methods, Flight Operations, and Regulations presents a detailed and comprehensive treatment of performance analysis techniques for jet transport airplanes. Uniquely, the book describes key operational and regulatory procedures and constraints that directly impact the performance of commercial airliners. Topics include: rigid body dynamics; aerodynamic fundamentals; atmospheric models (including standard and non-standard atmospheres); height scales and altimetry; distance and speed measurement; lift and drag and associated mathematical models; jet engine performance (including thrust and specific fuel consumption models); takeoff and landing performance (with airfield and operational constraints); takeoff climb and obstacle clearance; level, climbing and descending flight (including accelerated climb/descent); cruise and range (including solutions by numerical integration); payload-range; endurance and holding; maneuvering flight (including turning and pitching maneuvers); total energy concepts; trip fuel planning and estimation (including regulatory fuel reserves); en route operations and limitations (e.g. climb-speed schedules, cruise ceiling, ETOPS); cost considerations (e.g. cost index, energy cost, fuel tankering); weight, balance and trim; flight envelopes and limitations (including stall and buffet onset speeds, V-n diagrams); environmental considerations (viz. noise and emissions); aircraft systems and airplane performance (e.g. cabin pressurization and fuel); and performance-related regulatory requirements of the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) and EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency). Key features: Describes methods for the analysis of the performance of jet transport airplanes during all phases of flight Presents both analytical (closed form) methods and numerical approaches Describes key FAA and EASA regulations that impact airplane performance Presents equations and examples in both SI (Système International) and British units Considers the influence of operational procedures and its impact on airplane performance Performance of the Jet Transport Airplane: Analysis Methods, Flight Operations, and Regulations provides a comprehensive treatment of the performance of modern jet transport airplanes in an operational context. It is a must-have reference for aerospace engineering students, applied researchers conducting performance-related studies, and flight operations engineers.
The FAA?s Airplane Flying Handbook has been required reading for all pilots for over 40 years, and introduces the basic pilot skills and knowledge essential for piloting airplanes. It benefits student pilots just beginning their aviation endeavors, as well as pilots preparing for additional certificates and ratings or who want to improve their flying proficiency, and flight instructors engaged in teaching pilots of all skill levels. This handbook provides information and guidance on the procedures and maneuvers required for pilot certification. Chapters are dedicated to ground operations, basic flight maneuvers, slow flight, stalls, spins, takeoff and departure climbs, performance and ground reference maneuvers, airport traffic patterns, approaches and landings, flight training basics, transitions to different types of aircraft, emergency procedures, and much more. The latest edition expands and updates the material that has always been a key reference in the FAA?s testing and Airman Certification Standards (ACS), and it incorporates new areas of safety concerns and technical information such as loss-of-control upset prevention and recovery training, and transitioning to light sport airplanes (LSA). The Airplane Flying Handbook is the official FAA source for learning to fly and for many of the test questions in the FAA Knowledge Exams for pilots. Complete with chapter summaries and illustrated throughout with detailed, full-color drawings and photographs, it also includes a glossary and index.
Travel Tales Collections: Airplane Stories is part of Michael Brein´s Collections travel tales series and contains some of the best travel stories from Michael´s huge collection of travel tales, which he has gathered in interviews with nearly 1,750 world travelers and adventurers during his four decades of travel to more than 125 countries throughout the world. Travel Tales Collections are groups of very interesting, similar travel stories that address a variety of very specific travel subjects, themes, or countries, such as close calls, great escapes, pickpocketing, scams, safety and security in travel, Paris, Morocco, Mexico, and so on. Eventually, hundreds of Collections titles on all sorts of specific travel subjects, themes, and countries will be available. An airline story is in the news today! And so it goes. There´s hardly a day now that an airline incident of some sort or another is not in the news. We´re taking a lot closer look at air travel these days than ever before. Therefore, as regards the psychology of travel, we should take a much closer look at what actually happens on airplanes. So, in The Travel Psychologist Travel Tales Series, that´s exactly what I do. Air-travel-life stories include the full range of the human air travel experience, from preboarding incidents to arrivals; from the cabin to the loo; from the public and private lives of airline personnel as well as passengers - from the pilots, to the stews, to you; from that which makes us laugh to that which makes us cry as well as, unfortunately, to that which creates abject fear and terror in the skies. 1.

Boarding an airplane strikes at least a small sense of fear into most people. Even though we all have heard that the odds of being struck by lightning are greater than the odds of perishing in a plane crash, it still doesn´t feel that way. Airplane crashes might be rare, but they do happen, and they’re usually fatal. David Soucie insists that most of these deaths could be prevented. He’s worked as a pilot, a mechanic, an FAA inspector, and an aviation executive. He’s seen death up close and personal - deaths of colleagues and friends that might have been prevented if he had approved certain safety measures in the aircrafts they were handling. His years of experience have led Dave to become an impassioned consultant on the topic of airline safety. This includes not only advising the Obama administration, but also taking a leading role in the congressionally funded NextGen interdepartmental initiative in regards to both the department of transportation and the departments of defense, homeland security, FBI, CIA, and others. Find out the truth about airplane safety and discover what the future holds for air travel. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mike Chamberlain.

Scientific Essay from the year 2016 in the subject Philosophy - Miscellaneous, grade: A, , language: English, abstract: The importance of science cannot be over-emphasized. As a matter of fact it is almost, if not absolutely, impossible to imagine our world without science. Living in the twenty first century is almost synonymous with living the scientific life. Science has touched every aspect of human existence so much that man, today, cannot do without science. Living is today characterized by the use of the discoveries of science which to a large extent makes for safer,faster and easier ways of doing things. A good instance of a scientific discovery that has positively impacted all aspects of human existence is electricity. Electricity has changed the way we live, play, work, eat and communicate, among others. The invention of electricity gave birth to the idea of electric bulbs, electric kettles, electric heaters,refrigerators, air conditioners, elevators, automated teller machines (ATM), computers and tele-communication, among others. But for the discovery of the scientific phenomenon called electricity, humans would have remained crude, unsafe and at the mercy of the vagaries of nature. Similarly science has transformed the way we move and transport goods and services. Motorcycles, cars, trains, ships, jets and airplanes have all made movements of people, goods and services, safer, easier and faster. A journey of days from one part of the world to another is today only a matter of hours with air-planes. Livestockare moved in transport facilities that not only ensure their safety, but also ensure fast delivery in any part of the world. This brings us to the impact of science on agriculture. Hardly does a day go by without the need for food by both humans and animals. Food production is key to survival. Science has impacted on food (crop) production processes from planting, harvesting, storing and distributing. With the inventions of science such as bulldozers, planting machines, harvesters, insecticides and herbicides, among others, farmers today farm with ease and less stress as against the hardship faced by farmers in earlier centuries.
