An aircraft fuel system is a configuration that allows a crew to pump, manage, and deliver fuel to the propulsion system, engine, or other auxiliary power unit of an aircraft. A common aircraft fuel system consists of fuel tanks, fuel lines, fuel valves, fuel pumps, filters, heaters, and fuel system indicators. This blog will look at each of these engine fuel system components and shed light on their functions and role in the system as a whole.
On modern aircraft, both personal and commercial, there are a variety of systems that work together to provide pilots and passengers safe flight. The pitot static system of an aircraft is an extremely important system for the safety and efficiency of flight from the readings that they provide. From the altitude indicator to the airspeed indicator, many aircraft instruments rely on the pitot system for providing accurate readings so the pilot can always be aware of various aircraft operations and conditions. In this blog, we will discuss the pitot static system functionality, as well as some of the flight instruments that rely on them for functionality.
Passenger aircraft require reliable power distribution systems to carry out their operation and take hundreds of passengers across thousands of miles. Each aircraft has multiple sources of power and corresponding distributors. On average, airliners feature two or more AC generators driven by turbine engines. DC systems are also present on large aircraft to supply emergency power in case of main generator mishaps.
For every aircraft landing, the procedure consists of the descent to the runway, contacting the ground and reducing speed, and then taxiing to the terminal or final designated area. Landing is aided through many stems and components of the aircraft including wing flaps, thrust, and/or aircraft wheel and brake systems. In this blog, we will discuss a few of the procedures and aircraft landing gear components used to bring a flight to a successful end.
In the world of aviation maintenance, few procedures are as strenuous or demanding as removing an aircraft’s engine. Expensive and labor-intensive, it is something few technicians wish to do. Still there are numerous good reasons for removing an aircraft’s reciprocating engine or turbine engine.
Fiber optic cables are a new technology that is often on the tips of everyone’s tongues regarding internet speeds, better cable television, and more. Fiber optics have already been showcased as an improvement to the copper wire by many companies, and they have been slowly making their way into commercial markets and many homes. In this blog, we will discuss the various fiber optics materials that make up the wiring, as well as how they function to create greater bandwidth and transmission speeds.
The aspect ratio of a turbocharger’s housing is very important for aircraft engine and its boost ability. When aspect ratios are too small, there is little ability to create boost at lower speeds. On the other hand, having too great of a ratio can cause the engine to choke while in higher speeds, leading to drawbacks such as high pumping losses and lower output of power. Variable geometry turbochargers serve as a solution for this problem and are a rapidly developing technology.
In aviation, pressure switches and sensors are used in nearly every system aboard the aircraft. They trigger flight controls and instruments, monitor the fuel and engine systems, and are used to keep the cabin comfortable and clean. Even the pilot’s seat is equipped with a pressure sensor that detects if the pilot is sitting in it to ensure that he or she is flying the aircraft.
Most aircraft feature a 14- or 38-volt electrical system that is comprised of various components. This blog will identify the main components of the system and their function.
To begin, the alternator or generator supply the electric current to the aircraft electrical system. Alternators also provide an electrical charge to the battery which is used to start up the engine. The battery also stores a limited amount of energy in case the main electrical system fails.
