Aircraft jacking is an essential aspect of aviation maintenance and safety. To gain optimal leverage over a vessel for specific maintenance, repair, and/or assembly operations, an aircraft must be raised off the ground without losing balance. While it may seem like a straightforward process, aircraft jacking requires careful planning, skilled technicians, and specialized equipment to ensure the safety of both the aircraft and all personnel involved. In this blog, we will dive into the importance of aircraft jacking and its significance in maintaining flight deck integrity.

The aviation industry is constantly keeping up with technological advancements in the aerospace realm, ensuring that materials they use to manufacture their products are of the highest quality. For example, as fasteners find employment in a wide range of aviation applications, with nearly one million being used on a single aircraft alone, they must be produced with top-quality materials. In general, aircraft fasteners range from bolts and nuts to rivets and washers, many of which work in tandem to hold different parts together.

One of the most notable advancements was the debut of turbine-powered engines, those of which have allowed aircraft to be heavier, fly higher, and fly farther. With continued advancements over the years, turbine engines have solidified themselves as a dependable choice for many aviation applications. Nevertheless, turbine engines can still face various issues during standard operations, such as starting malfunctions, that prevent the initiation of operations. In this blog, we will discuss the most common start malfunctions that turbine-powered aircraft may face, allowing you to be better prepared for such potential instances.

The aircraft parts interact to produce all the necessary aerodynamics that make them as successful as they are today. Whether you are piloting a civil, passenger, commercial, or military aircraft, always consider the primary areas which construct the vehicle you are occupying, that way you can better understand the state of your plane at every stage of flight. Listed below in brief detail are the seven sections which make up aircraft, and the purpose each one holds:

A monolithic composite panel made from carbon fiber, the bulkhead is a rigorous structure that is strengthened through the use of stiffeners which are integrated onto the front surface. To ensure that the bulkhead is even more secure, the entire rim is attached to the fuselage with 12 titanium rim angles. With such an intensive design, one may wonder why a rear pressure bulkhead that is this rigorous is even needed in the first place. In this blog, we will further discuss the design and purpose of the rear pressure bulkhead, allowing you to have a better understanding of its importance.

Many modernized instruments and systems are highly reliable in their performance, many can be sensitive and susceptible to magnetism. For example, magnetic compasses can have distorted readings when an object messes with their natural gravitational pull, leading to incorrect readings that can detract from a flight plan or operation. To avoid such issues with any instrument or system, aircraft are specifically designed with a number of non-magnetic fastener parts and materials.

Whether a passenger aircraft is small or large, all seem to share the same style of windows, those of which are small and circular. While one could imagine the benefit of having large, square-shaped windows for increased viewing of one’s surroundings, there are very specific reasons for why this is neither feasible nor safe. In this blog, we will discuss why the design of aircraft windows is fairly unchangeable, and how the shape of windows is directly tied to the aerodynamics of the aircraft itself.

Auxiliary power units typically comprise three main sections–the power, load compressor, and gearbox, and they are designed to operate at 115V and 400 Hz to reduce systemic inefficiency. These voltage and frequency values help make aircraft lighting and air conditioning possible for passenger comfort. Since APUs are fundamental to an aircraft’s well-being and standard operations, learning more about their functionality becomes paramount.

Auxiliary power units, or APUs, are common elements found on fixed-wing aircraft, serving as energy sources that are in addition to the standard engines and batteries used for flight operations. APUs are very important for a number of reasons, providing various systems power while the aircraft is parked for safety. While electricity is necessary for the operation of many systems and apparatuses during the passenger boarding phase, having an engine operating near personnel and the airport terminal is very hazardous. As a result, the APU is a common item on numerous medium to large aircraft.

Electromagnetic interference (EMI) is the phenomenon that occurs when signal noise from one electronic circuit or device disrupts the function of others around it. While generally unnoticed in everyday life, EMI can pose significant risks in aviation, with the capacity to disrupt vital avionic and communication systems. To safeguard against this, aircraft employ several physical security measures throughout to halt the propagation of these harmful signals. In this blog, we will discuss everything you need to know about EMI in the context of aviation, including the threat posed to aerospace operations and how it is prevented.
