While aircraft are designed with increased durability and strength in mind, aircraft inevitably age, their components wear down, and their structures necessitate reinforcement. One notable example of the detrimental consequences of aircraft aging was seen on April 28, 1988 in Hawaii when an Aloha Airlines Boeing 737-200 lost part of its cabin roof during flight. Luckily, the pilot was able to safely land, saving nearly everyone onboard with the exception of a flight attendant who was swept overboard.

As the capabilities of modern aircraft continue to improve, so does the need for high-reliability instrumentation. These instruments, which may either be mechanical or electrical depending on the age of the aircraft, give pilots critical information about metrics such as altitude, airspeed, direction, and other such information. While instruments such as the altimeter and artificial horizon play a vital role in operations, the less appreciated engine-performance instruments also provide essential real-time data to help ensure safety. In this blog, we will detail the several engine-performance instruments so that you may have a better understanding of their design and function.

A turbocharger system consists of a turbine and a compressor connected by a shared axis. The turbine inlet receives exhaust gasses from the engine exhaust manifold, causing the turbine wheel to rotate. This rotation drives the compressor, allowing it to compress ambient air and deliver it to the air intake of the engine. To better understand turbocharger systems, this blog will provide a brief overview of their function and importance.

Fasteners are a crucial aspect of aviation operations, serving for the assembly of aircraft, their various systems, and much more. As the fasteners implemented on aircraft require the ability to withstand intensive environments where they face temperature extremes, high pressures, chemicals, and more, they must be manufactured to rigid standards. Additionally, aviation fasteners also undergo very thorough inspection prior to being sold to ensure their quality and caliber. These processes and standards are extremely important as they make the difference between a robust aircraft and one that is very hazardous to fly. In this blog, we will discuss the regulations that aviation fasteners are subjected to, allowing you to better understand the importance of such control.

If you've ever looked out the window of a modern commercial aircraft and observed the wings, you might have noticed an interesting notch at the tip. While they might not appear to be doing much, those "winglets" have played a prominent role in increasing the efficiency of aircraft since their implementation in the early 2000s. In this blog, we will discuss the history and some nuances of the winglet.

Actuators are commonplace components on countless assemblies, responsible for moving and controlling mechanisms or systems as a mover. With a control signal and an energy source, actuators generate a mechanical motion for automation or automatic control. On aircraft, actuators may be present in countless areas, tasked with managing the operations of the cargo door, bay door, flap control systems, landing gear, and more. Furthermore, they may be powered through hydraulic motors, electric motors, or other means. In this blog, we will discuss mechanical actuators in particular and their common types, allowing you to understand how they benefit flight operations.
