You will stop breathing. Your heart will race. You will whisper, Dear God, no!" Five Minutes to Impact is every traveler's nightmare, yet simultaneously an inspiring story of supernatural peace in the darkest hour." ( Jim Congdon, Th.D, Sr. Pastor Topeka Bible Church, Author, Chairman of Jews for Jesus)"Kansas City Center- Comanche eight-five-four-six-papa-we have an emergency."With these words, David F. Osborne alerted air traffic controllers his plane and passengers were in serious danger. What began as a normal business trip home from North Dakota turned, without warning, from tranquility to turmoil.In the darkness of night, the once-powerful, single engine, Piper Comanche 260 airplane began experiencing catastrophic engine failure. Within seconds, the previously well-tuned aircraft was shaking violently putting the plane in a rapid descent while the cockpit was quickly filling with thick smoke. With an emergency crash landing now imminent, the gripping realization that the pilot and his passengers faced almost certain death had become undeniable reality.Five Minutes to Impact is a true story of overcoming fear in the face of unexpected crisis, understanding the providence of God in the dealings of man, and renewing our faith in His divine plan for our lives.Continued endorsements:"This is the story of a pilot's worst fears lived out! As a private pilot myself, I caught myself mentally following the story . . . a story of a miracle landing on a dark night with seemingly nowhere to land. Dave tells the story from his perspective a faith-based worldview intertwined in every aspect of his life. I'm sure that you, like me, will not be able to put down this incredible story. If you know a pilot, give this book to her or him for an inspirational experience." (Lauren Libby, International President/CEO, TWR International)Five Minutes to Impact is 1. Language: English.

Simulation Software

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Simulation software is based on the process of imitating a real phenomenon with a set of mathematical formulas. It is, essentially, a program that allows the user to observe an operation through simulation without actually performing that operation. Simulation software is used widely to design equipment so that the final product will be as close to design specs as possible without expensive in process modification. Simulation software with real-time response is often used in gaming, but it also has important industrial applications. When the penalty for improper operation is costly, such as airplane pilots, nuclear power plant operators, or chemical plant operators, a mock up of the actual control panel is connected to a real-time simulation of the physical response, giving valuable training experience without fear of a disastrous outcome.

Seminar paper from the year 2000 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 2,0, University of Flensburg (Englisches Seminar), course: Reading Contemporary American Fiction: Barbara Kingsolver, 5 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: IntroductionThe main thesis: Death determines the life of Cosima Noline and finally changes it The main character in the novel 'Animal Dreams' by Barbara Kingsolver, Codi Noline, is a person who has always denied the possibility and importance of change in peoples lives. Her sister Hallie has a positive attitude towards the way of the world and thinks 'nothing stays with you all your life' [p. 31], which means everything can be changed to turn out well. In Codi¿s opinion there is nothing she can ever steer in the world not even in her own microcosm and although the name Cosima means 'order in the cosmos' [p. 13], she feels that she 'must have sensed the lack of cosmic order in (her) future' [p. 13]. When she grew up in Grace, Codi felt 'unfit to live' [p. 184], also in present she has 'no more mission in life than I¿d been born with [p. 28]. She believes she is born as the bad part of the two sisters. The one who goes hand in hand with death. When Codi once looks at the plants before her front step, she thinks they are 'right down to death¿s door, but water always brought them back' [p. 89], whereas she 'could only wish for such resilience' [p. 89] to escape death. In opposition to her fate as being the death angel, her sister Hallie has got the gift to protect life because she knows how to grow plants and how to help people in emergencies.The roles cannot be changed. Codi is surrounded by death. Her mother died when she was a child and at the age of sixteen Codi had a miscarriage. She is the first person who explores the poison which is killing Grace from underneath. For her it seems to be just another bad omen of her failed life. She does not recognize the positive images around her, for example the strong relationship with her sister Hallie, not also that she is the savior of Grace, because she has enabled the people of Grace to take the last chance and save their hometown. In the end of the novel, the life of Codi Noline turns upside down and this dramatic change is on one hand the result of Hallie¿s death in Nicaragua. The closest person in her lifetime, whom Codi always believed was the better part of herself has now gone forever. On the other hand that she survived the airplane flight accidentally is the second occurrence on her way towards a new life. Suddenly she recognizes that 'so much of life is animal instinct' [p. 319]. It is a new aspect on her life, that she as a human being also inherited 'fear and the will to live' [p. 319]. However, these are the traumatic incidents she always seemed to need. It does not make her life seemingly unbearable but turns her despair around. Halimeda, which means 'thinking of the sea' [p. 13], nevermore the center of Codi¿s life, is dead. But the sea is the origin of all life on earth and becomes the bearer of Codi Noline¿s 'new life'. The discontent that has chased her since she was born is now unraveled.

Carrier Daze

In 1951, as tensions escalate on the Korean Peninsula, a Stanford freshman who prefers a dry ship to a wet foxhole, and who has a ferocious fear of flying, joins the Stanford NROTC on the promise of a Marine Colonel that he never has to fly in the Navy. The Colonel of course meant fly like at the controls of an airplane. Our young hero thought he meant fly like in an airplane. And thus began the hysterical adventures of he who didn?t want to fly but ended up in the air. Four years later, he is commissioned an ensign after graduating from Stanford and completing two years of law school. He then receives orders for Japan and nervously boards a cargo plane, beginning an unforgettable adventure to keep America safe for democracy with a laugh a minute. When Dick finally arrives on his assigned ship, the USS Oriskany, he is appointed temporary legal officer and even more temporarily, a lieutenant commander. In the middle of the vast Pacific Ocean, he handles legal cases, makes new friends, and learns how to survive life on an aircraft carrier. His adventures eventually lead him to the girl of his dreams, literally, and onto the deck of the USS Lake Champlain where more hysterical and some very moving events await. Carrier Daze shares tales of a naïve naval officer?s entertaining adventures on the water and beyond as he serves his country and becomes a man.

Why Planes Crash
29,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

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 pre-vented 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 air-line 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.
