The cockpit of an aircraft is its center of action, serving as the room where pilots carry out flight operations ranging from the control of the aircraft to communication with Air Traffic Control. With the complexity of aircraft, an array of instruments and controls are placed within arms reach of the pilot, ensuring that they have the information and management capabilities to carry out safe operations. In this blog, we will discuss some of the main components that are found within the cockpit, allowing you to better understand how various procedures are conducted.

In order for fuel to be transferred from a fuel tank to a vehicle or other location, an apparatus known as a fuel transfer pump is commonly used. Fuel transfer pumps are relied on for a grand number of vehicles and operations, ranging from the fueling of a forklift truck to the operations of utility vehicles found within quarries and construction sites. Depending on the type of liquid or fuel that is being handled, as well as other various factors, there are a number of common fuel transfer pump types that one may take advantage of. In order to find the correct fit for a given application, it can be useful to have an understanding of the various differences between types.

As the aviation industry continues to seek out advanced technologies for the means of reducing emissions and the amount of fuel needed for flight, aircraft engines are constantly being improved. Beyond initiatives centered around the efficiency of fuel combustion, manufacturers also seek ways to achieve more efficient cooling and heat management to reduce the strain and wear placed on engine components as fuel is continuously burned at intense temperatures. In recent years, a number of technologies have been researched and developed for the means of creating more efficient aircraft, one of which is capable of increasing combustion efficiency, reducing heat strain, and achieving greener operations.

Despite the immense speed of aircraft as compared to common land based transportation options, long distance flights can still take a significant duration of time to complete. As such, aircraft are designed to ensure passenger comfort throughout flights with the implementation of various amenities. Serving as basic elements of almost all passenger aircraft, water and waste systems are crucial for providing passengers with a functional lavatory that is capable of distributing water and properly disposing of waste. Furthermore, the water system also provides fluids for the galley sink, enabling the use of coffee and tea makers. As a common part of many aircraft, understanding the basics of the aircraft water and waste system is crucial for any aircraft engineer or manufacturer.

As the aviation industry continues to grow in size, engineers are always searching for new improvements to be made for the benefit of flying. One crucial area of focus is the engine as increasing its performance can make flights more efficient and safe. Whether experts seek to find the perfect amount of fuel for flight planning or are determined to avoid lengthy and costly maintenance procedures before they occur, flight data is paramount for conducting the research needed for achieving such advances in technology and operations.

Hydroelectric plants are important facilities that generate a large amount of electricity with the use of water reservoirs. The water contained within the reservoirs is used to spin turbines within the plant, that of which then activates generators for energy generation. In order to efficiently produce power and to avoid any backups or hazardous water conditions, hydroelectric plants need to control the amount of water flowing through the entire system. To achieve this, plants will often use a hydro turbine control system that can vary the output and spill gates of the hydro turbine generator.

In aviation facilities, where there are countless moving parts and many pieces of large machinery, the presence of hazards is inevitable. During aircraft maintenance, in particular, workers are regularly near large structures, sharp components, turbine blades, and more. Whether it is a hangar, ramp, or workshop, extra precaution must be taken in these workplaces. In this blog, we will discuss the five most common causes of aircraft maintenance workplace accidents and how to prevent them.

A hydraulic system uses pressurized fluid to drive machinery. A standard system consists of the hydraulic fluid and three mechanical components: the pressure generator, plumbing, and motor. The pressure generator is a hydraulic pump driven by an electric motor, engine, or manual pump. The plumbing refers to the valves, filters, and pipes, and the motor is either a hydraulic motor, hydraulic cylinder, or hydraulic actuator.
