Interesting Animation Explains How Airplanes Are Able to Fly

Drag. Thrust. Lift. Jet engines. Propellers. Wings. This animation breaks down just exactly how an airplane flies and it’s pretty damn interesting. Each design element of the plane basically solves a law of physics and is part

Why can’t pilots drink alcohol after a flight?

Commercial pilots (in the United States) are usually not allowed to drink while on duty regardless of their flight status because, among other things, it would be frightening to any prospective passengers who might see them drinking.

A plane on conveyor belt which in opposite direction, Can takeoff?

The plane on the conveyor belt A plane is on a conveyor belt which moves in the opposite direction. Can it take off? This page is an appendix to the Physclips page Vectors and relative motion. It

Runway Lighting Technical Specifications

Technical specifications  Runway lighting is used at airports that allow night landings. Seen from the air, runway lights form an outline of the runway. A particular runway may have some or all of the following: Runway end

Aircraft Maintenance Technician Salary In USA By State

Process costing

Process costing Process costing takes into account the cost of each manufacturing process and apportions part of the cost of each process to an individual product. Typical processes might be: • forming, bending or machining of metal

Costing Techniques

Any engineering company will incur a variety of costs. These will typically include: • rent for factory and office premises • rates • energy costs (including heating and lighting) • material costs • costs associated with production

Environmental legislation

Engineering activities can have harmful effects on the physical environment and therefore on people. In order to minimize these effects, there is a range of legislation (rules and regulations) that all engineering companies must observe. The appropriate

Carbon dioxide

Carbon dioxide in the air absorbs some of the long-wave radiation emitted by the earth’s surface and in so doing is heated. The more carbon dioxide there in the air, the greater the heating or greenhouse effect. This

Environmental constraints

Modern engineering processes and systems are increasingly designed and implemented to minimize environmental affects. Engineering companies must ensure that the negative effects of engineering activities on the natural and built environment are minimized. You need to be
