- Thesis: Military Aircraft Has Become More Sophisticated In Variety, Effectiveness In War Situations, And Special Maneuvering - 1,512 words
Thesis: Military aircraft has become more sophisticated in variety, effectiveness in war situations, and special maneuvering techniques in recent years. Military aircraft has become more sophisticated in variety, effectiveness in war situations, and special maneuvering techniques in recent years. With the advance of stealth technology, many new and very effective aircraft have been developed. The F-117A was used during Operation Dessert Storm and every plane came back without a scratch. The very expensive B-2 stealth bomber has never been used in actual war, but during testing it was a success. The Advanced Tactical Fighter program was started to make an aircraft that could supercruise, the ...

... e air over the wings creating lift. This initial force is usually found in the form of a propeller or a jet engine. An exception to those forms of thrust is a glider. A glider still needs an initial force to begin flight, which is usually found in a tow plane. The most commonly used thrust mechanism is a propeller. The propeller will continue to be the most commonly used because of its effectiveness and cheapness. Due to the jet engines high cost and high speeds it will remain primarily a military aircraft power plant. The physics of thrust used in aircraft is semi-complicated. Firstly, in the case of the propeller the propeller must be large enough to displace or pull enough air to keep ...

- Alaska Airlines - 1,400 words
Alaska Airlines Alaska Airlines For nearly 70 years, Alaska Airlines has served the west coast of North America. Alaska Airlines has grown from a small regional airline in 1932 to one today that carries more than 12 million customers per year. Alaskas route system spans more than 40 cities and primarily services four countries: Canada, United States, Mexico, and Russia. Its fleet of 88 Boeing jets is the youngest among all major airlines and it has earned U.S. airline recognition from Travel & Leisure and Cond Nast Traveler magazines. The foundation of Alaska Airlines began in 1932, when Mac McGee started flying his three-seat Stinson between Anchorage and Bristol Bay, Alaska. In 1934, a mer ...

... n their goals(Mosley 57). In the first 10 days the British suffered heavy loses because they flew in tight formations and had no room to move when they were under attack by the Germans. The RAF soon changed their strategy and began flying in Finger Four formation, which broke up the rigidity of the old formations and improved their odds against the Luftwaffe in air encounters(Mosley 86). Every day, during the months of June to October 1940, the RAF and Luftwaffe fought in the skies. The Luftwaffes final attempt to knock out the RAF began on Eagle Day, August 13,1940(Battle of Britain). Though the weather was stormy a flight of 74 Dronier bombers and 50 Me-110s headed towards RAF fields a ...

Crew Resource Managament WARNING!!! This is for ERAU -- Wildinger's class. Don't even *think* of using this in his class!!! -strong message follows- Crew Resource Management 1 Running Head: CRM AND AVIATION SAFETY Crew Resource Management and Aviation Safety Steven B. McSwain Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Crew Resource Management 2 Abstract Throughout the history of aviation, accidents have and will continue to occur. With the introduction of larger and more complex aircraft, the number of humans required to operate these complex machines has increased as well as, some say, the probability of human error. There are studies upon studies of aircraft accidents and incidents resulting fro ...

- Hurricanes - 1,193 words
Hurricanes Summer is over and fall has arrived- but many people to the south of us are observing another season- hurricane season. According to the Montshire Museum of Science, "hurricanes usually occur in the North Atlantic from June to November, with most of them in September." On average, between six to eight hurricanes form in the North Atlantic or North Pacific each year (Montshire). However, as many as 15 have occurred in the Atlantic in a single year. Hurricanes are powerful, whirling storms that measure several hundred miles in diameter. The winds near the center of a hurricane blow at speeds of 74 miles per hour or more (World Book, 400). Many hurricanes leave a trail of widespread ...

... nventional tail, there would be a downward vector, which reduces aircraft performance. But by putting a canard and control surfaces out front, you get an upward force vector to balance out the nose-down moment. The name of the game is to get as much lift as you can so you can carry as much weight as possible (Popular Science 143). Results from the NASA research are expected to influence both military and commercial-jet design of this decade and the future. The industry has been conservative for years--now we're pushing. These airplanes will be better than anything that exists today (Popular Science 143). The Canard Configuration, though it has many physical, economical and safety advanta ...

... to the United States in 1871. In the United States he began teaching students that were either deaf, mute or both. He taught by the system called visible speech. This system, was developed by his father, a Scottish educator named Alexander Melville Bell. It shows how the lips, tongue, and throat are used to make sound. In 1872 Bell founded a school for deaf-mutes in Boston, Massachusetts. The school later became part of Boston University, where Bell was appointed professor of vocal physiology. He became a naturalized US citizen in 1882. Ever since the age of 18, Bell had been working on the idea of transmitting speech. In 1874, while working on a multiple telegraph, he developed the basi ...

- The Birth Of The Western European Union Began Some 28 Years - 2,031 words
... when in 1987 the WEU membership expanded to nine with the inclusion of Spain and Portugal due to their membership in the EC, this lead to Washington issuing a warning that "Atlantic co-operation must take priority over developments among West Europeans themselves. In 1991 a U.S. call for a stronger Western European role within the alliance was matched with a warning about the adverse impact of moves towards a European discussion on America's role within Europe. Visits to Europe by U.S. officials cautioned European governments against any practical steps towards a separate European Defence Identity. This did however embarrass some as an intervention in preempting any European debate on th ...

- Us Airlines - 1,841 words
US Airlines Deregulation of the U.S. airline industry has resulted in ticket prices dropping by a third, on an inflation-adjusted basis. As a result some 1.6 million people fly on 4,000 aircraft every day. Airlines carried 643 million passengers in 1998, a 25% increase over 1993 and the FAA estimates that the nations airline system will have to accommodate 917 million passengers by the year 2008. The growth in air travel threatens to overwhelm the presently inadequate air traffic control system, which has not kept pace with available technology in navigation, communications, and flight surveillance. Much of the equipment used for air traffic control today is based on fifty-year-old technolog ...

... the assembly lines going and keep the planes flying. Women were also given the opportunity to fly these planes as well. Originally called WAFS, these women are actually considered to be the first women to fly in and pilot military aircraft. These women were part of a ferrying squadron that was dreamed up and started by a woman by the name of Nancy Harkness Love. This soon was renamed to the Women Airforce Service Pilots or WASP. These women were responsible for the delivery of aircraft to their home bases and for ferrying them back and forth from the war (Women were vital to military success in war). Women also served much like they did during World War I in which thousands worked with ...
