Views from the Cockpit: The Journey of a Son is a memoir born from pain. Word by word, year by year, tender father-son memories of airplane watching transform into nightmarish, turbulent family drama. Upon the discovery that his father had been the victim of severe elder abuse as his health was rapidly deteriorating, the author finds himself reevaluating the decisions his father made throughout his life. With an unshakable ending, the author's probing dissection of a man he thought he knew reckons with disloyalty, depression, religion, and death, leaving no stone unturned.Through sharp, sometimes hilariously brash analysis, decorated in plane metaphors and imagery, the author expresses his commitment to truth with sincerity and transparency. He reaches for forgiveness, understanding and compromise in the face of absurdity and uncompromising rigidity.Ultimately, he contemplates a different "flight path" drawn from past lessons. He encourages listeners to do the same.A must-listen for sons, fathers and families. Book-club discussion guide included. 1. Language: English. Narrator: J. Ross Victory, Ross Victory.

Blending Families responds to the need for a book that explores stepparenting by starting with the marriage as the central relationship in a new blended family unit. Just as you are better able to help your child in an airplane emergency if you put your oxygen mask on first, you are better able to blend two families if you take care of the marriage first. Starting with a discussion of attachment styles, the authors explore how those styles translate into the new family unit when trying to forge a new marriage while parenting tween and teen children in a family unit that is new to them as well. They provide parenting guidance premised on the fact that parenting occurs within a context, and in this case a context that is unfamiliar territory for everyone involved. Using true stories throughout, they explore the variety of challenges that may arise, such as sibling rivalry, puberty, dating, emotional and intellectual differences and preferential treatment and offer suggestions for overcoming obstacles to fully blending. By focusing the light on the marriage as the most important source of stability, the authors encourage listeners to develop a style of parenting that works for everyone and brings a sense of unity and strength to the household. 1.

Al Gore has been in the news recently, and it's not about his environmental work. A high-end hotel masseuse claims he wanted her to keep going lower with the rubs. But she really only does back and shoulders massage, so she got a little steamed when he kept insisting on more. Why wasn't a real call girl called? Well, Susie has many takes on the need of some powerful men to dominate, and why Al and his wife, Tipper, and have decided to split. Next, in "Tell Me Your Sex Story", our ongoing series of listener interviews, Susie speaks with "Sam", an aerospace engineer. They talk about having sex in some surprising places…he's even done it while flying an airplane. Oh no, the co-pilot is busy adjusting some controls other then the navigational instruments. This redefines turbulent motion on planes.Finally in our "Try This at Home" mailbag, a man writes in response to Susie's recent discussion about Apple founder Steve Jobs' statements about evil porn. Our listener says, no, Jobs just wants to control everything; he's not anti-porn. Susie thinks otherwise. She says many anti-porn people will cry wolf to distract you from seeing what they’re actually doing behind closed doors. Have a question? You can call Susie's hotline at 831-480-5110.

Cyclogenesis research is a central issue of meteorology and climatology. This book gives a deep specific view and fundamentally and effectively contributes to the discussion of the problem. It treats cyclogenisis as a stochastic process in a very fundamental way. Since the publication of the first edition of Global Tropical Cyclogenesis in 2001, a number of important scientific results has been obtained using methods and techniques proposed in that first edition. There is therefore a great need for a revised 2nd edition of this book. It is based on scientific findings from the performance of satellite data processing and a series of scientific marine expeditions to the tropics as part of major Russian Science Academy research projects. Professor Eugene A. Sharkov has proposed the main approaches, experimental techniques and theoretical explanations for many scientific findings as well as new methods of satellite processing. He is recognized as a leading scientist in the field of microwave remote sensing of terrestrial surfaces and atmosphere and in nonlinear geophysics (origination and evolution of atmospheric catastrophes) and has published around 100 scientific works on the problems of global tropical cyclogenesis structure and evolution. This book presents the first physical findings of an investigation into the spatio-temporal characteristics of the global tropical cyclogenesis. Since Global Tropical Cyclogenesis was first published in 2001, many important scientific results have been obtained using methods and techniques developed by the author, including: the detection of the global tropical cyclogenesis as a main element of poleward heat transport in the terrestrial atmosphere, the evolution tropical activity in equatorial precipitable water fields, and scales of interactions between solar activity and global tropical cyclogenesis. These are all explained, together with the new scientific knowledge gained from the study of spatial-temporal properties of the global tropical cyclogenesis which affects satellite oceanography, atmosphere physics, ocean engineering, air-sea interaction and ocean remote sensing.Professor Sharkov gives findings from the Russian scientific airplane-based remote sensing expeditions to the Far East over the Pacific and the several scientific marine expeditions to the tropics as part of major research projects of the Russian Academy of Sciences. A principal feature of the book is the integrated description of spatial-temporal and structure properties of atmosphere catastrophes. Emphasis is placed on the physical aspects of breaking processes necessary to judge the possibilities and limitations of remote sensing methods in monitoring and mitigating natural hazards. The author includes numerous practice applications and illustrations taken from air-borne, ship-borne and laboratory up-to-date experiments. New chapters cover the possible impact of solar activity and effects of tropical cyclones on the upper atmosphere, time series and cumulative functions of global tropical cyclogenesis over 25 years, ionosphere and tropical cyclones activity, instability genesis in compress and saturated moist air atmosphere and complex satellite and in-situ "Scenario-TC" and "Global-RT" databases. A new Appendix gives quantitative data on spatio-temporal features of global and regional tropical cyclogenesis from 1983 to 2008.
Seminar paper from the year 2014 in the subject Engineering - Aerospace Technology, grade: 1,3, University of Applied Sciences Wildau (Wildau Institute of Technology), course: Aviation Management 2012, language: English, abstract: Indeed, the majority of airlines are faced with the challenge of aging fleets and when it might be optimal to replace older aircraft. Well, any discussion of the wisdom of retaining capital equipment is usually based on economic arguments. In a competitive environment, airlines are continuously obliged to improve their business and equipment to stay profitable.The prediction of future maintenance costs of the own fleet is an integral element of prospective budgeting projections, on the other hand they serve as a vital part within aircraft replacement calculations. For example if the costs of maintaining the existing equipment on a timely basis exceeds the capital, interest, and amortization charges on replacement equipment, the decision to buy a sort of replacement is straightforward. In most cases the substituteequipment even offers an improved productivity as well (Dixon 2006, p. 1).Beside any debate concerning costs and efficiency, flight safety considerations also enter into the discussion especially in the field of aviation. The question to repair or replace is an ongoing decision making process for the maintenance department of every airline operator.Now the key questions to be answered in this context are: Is it possible to describe a standard airplane service life and how does the fleet age of world's leading airlines look like? How does the process of maintenance develop over an aircraft's whole life cycle and can necessary costs be estimated? What can be done technically to keep aging effects of aircraft under control and when might be the right time to withdraw an aircraft from service?In order to answer the abundance of questions my term paper is divided into an economic based part including compiled data and statistics and a more technical part. In the beginning, this paper investigates the ordinary economic life of commercial airplanes. Additionally I'm going to inspect exemplary the average fleet age of world's leading airlines. In the second stage I am going to describe how to estimate maintenance costs of aircraft that grow older.Further I wanted to clarify technical aspects and problems that might occur more frequently with the rising age of an aircraft.
Scientific Study from the year 2007 in the subject Business economics - Operations Research, grade: 1,0, University of Southern California (Business Faculty), course: Strategic Management, 64 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The purpose of this report is to provide a Strategic Management Report with detailed strategic analyses of the dominant civil aircraft manufacturers Airbus and Boeing. The discussion main part of this report is separated into internal and external analyses, which are reasoned in greater detail and supported with reasonable graphs and tables in the attached Appendices. Finally, conclusions are drawn as to which is the more strategic savvy and which company has the more sustainable enterprise; and there is a recommendation given in which company a potential investor should rather invest in. Airbus and Boeing are having a neck-and-neck race in the aircraft industry for jets over 100 seats between Airbus and Boeing about the market leadership. After Airbus overtook its rival the first time in 2001 in terms of aircraft order and delivery, it stayed in front the last years until Boeing got back on top in 2006. The aircraft manufacturing industry is constantly growing, a global market and had a size of US$ 63 billion revenues in 2006. It is characterized by high entry barriers and investment in R&D and by a duopoly with Airbus and Boeing having a market share of 86% for aircrafts over 100 seats. At the moment Airbus is in weaker financial position than its competitor. Boeing had an average year in 2006 with a moderate and good profitability, whereas Airbus is not in the red, but it is remarkable that the company had a bad year caused by the production and delivery problems with the A380, connecting with the delay compensations. In general, both Airbus and Boeing experience a strong support by the parent companies, whereas Boeing's outstanding and tightened military division strongly keeps the commercial airplane division on the ground and gives it an edge. In terms of product strategy the strength of the one is the weakness of the other: Boeing found no real answer on the A380 as mega-jumbo, but is highly successful with its B787 in the mid-size, long-range segment, where Airbus is lagging behind with its try to catch up through the A350. The market opportunities for both companies and strategies exist with increasing air traffic, especially in Asia with its upcoming markets China and India. On the other side increasing prices for raw materials or indirectly oil price fluctuations, and the risk of a new external shocks are threatening the performance.
The Aircraft Weight and Balance Handbook is the official U.S. government guidebook for pilots, flight crews, and airplane mechanics. Beginning with the basic principles of aircraft weight and balance control, this manual goes on to cover in exacting detail the procedures for weighing aircraft. It also offers a thorough discussion of the methods used to determine the location of an aircraft&#8217;s empty weight and center of gravity (CG), including information for an A&P mechanic to determine weight changes caused by repairs or alterations. With instructions for conducting adverse-loaded CG checks and for determining the amount and location of ballast needed to bring CG within allowable limits, the Aircraft Weight and Balance Handbook is essential for anyone who wishes to safely weigh and fly aircraft of all kinds.
Aircraft Flight Dynamics and Control addresses airplane flight dynamics and control in a largely classical manner, but with references to modern treatment throughout. Classical feedback control methods are illustrated with relevant examples, and current trends in control are presented by introductions to dynamic inversion and control allocation. This book covers the physical and mathematical fundamentals of aircraft flight dynamics as well as more advanced theory enabling a better insight into nonlinear dynamics. This leads to a useful introduction to automatic flight control and stability augmentation systems with discussion of the theory behind their design, and the limitations of the systems. The author provides a rigorous development of theory and derivations and illustrates the equations of motion in both scalar and matrix notation. Key features: * Classical development and modern treatment of flight dynamics and control * Detailed and rigorous exposition and examples, with illustrations * Presentation of important trends in modern flight control systems * Accessible introduction to control allocation based on the author's seminal work in the field * Development of sensitivity analysis to determine the influential states in an airplane's response modes * End of chapter problems with solutions available on an accompanying website Written by an author with experience as an engineering test pilot as well as a university professor, Aircraft Flight Dynamics and Control provides the reader with a systematic development of the insights and tools necessary for further work in related fields of flight dynamics and control. It is an ideal course textbook and is also a valuable reference for many of the necessary basic formulations of the math and science underlying flight dynamics and control.
