Aircraft are some of the most advanced and meticulously designed machines in modern engineering. Nothing, from the individual bearings to the large superstructures, is left up to chance when it comes to design and composition. One of the most critical elements in aircraft engineering has always been the material that various components are made from, which has changed many times over the years as material technology has advanced. Known for its reliability and cost-effectiveness, one type of material that has stuck around since the earliest days of aviation is stainless steel. In this blog, we will discuss this longstanding material and describe why it has played such a large part in aviation history.

Airshows are events where aircraft are exhibited, and aerobatic demonstrations are quite common for entertaining onlookers. As aerobatic demonstrations often include various tricks, maneuvers, dives, and other complex techniques, they require pilots with high skill to successfully and safely carry out shows. While a pilot will need to have ample ability to expertly maneuver their aircraft, they also rely on various instruments that provide them with the necessary information to do so. One of the most important instruments that airshow pilots consistently monitor is the airspeed indicator, allowing them to conduct various tricks and maneuvers without facing a stall.

Aircraft can produce their own power, it is often not economically feasible or safe to do so while on a runway near an airport, or next to a hangar. To remedy such issues, operators rely on GPUs which are an efficient solution that power aircraft while saving money and fuel.

In this blog, we will talk about propeller technology and how they are implemented on modern aircraft. The operating principle of propellers can be described using basic physics, particularly Newton's Third Law, which states that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. That being said, propellers convert rotational energy into forward thrust by pulling air through the propeller. This act of displacing air creates a pressure differential which is met with force in the opposite direction, thus pushing the aircraft forward. The relationship between the two opposing forces is constant, in that more thrust is created as more air is pulled through the propellers.

Overview
Electronic devices use switches to regulate when and where power is used. An automotive relay is a common type of switch, often used in car headlights. Another type of electronic switch is a starter motor. Indicated by its name, a starter motor is compatible with motors and features safety designs that are not found in relays. Here, you will find some of the basic information about starter motors that will help you understand their functionality and practical usage.

As the aviation industry continues to grow and the need for filter replacements is ever present, the global aircraft filter market has seen consistent expansion over the years. As of the present, the global aircraft filter market has been projected to grow around 21.75% over the years between 2021 and 2026, featuring a CAGR of 4.0% across the same period. This growth is due to various factors, examples being a steady increase of aircraft renewals and deliveries.

Due to the intensity of aviation operations, many components can easily face wear and tear over time, and other parts may become bent, dent, or otherwise deformed due to stressors or force. As a loss of integrity or a change in functionality can affect the overall performance and safety of an aircraft, it is imperative that damaged items are rapidly attended to in order to ensure that the aircraft gets back up and flying again as soon as possible.

While the collection of moisture is fairly unavoidable, unchecked accumulation can eventually result in heavy damage that can only be reversed with significant repairs or the replacement of parts. In order to mitigate the buildup of hazardous moisture, assemblies utilize what is known as a drain valve for protection.

Bearings are a common component to assemblies with moving parts, facilitating motion while minimizing the amount of friction generated between surfaces. Bearings may come in many forms to accommodate varying applications, popular types including the plain bearing, ball bearing, and roller bearing. As each type may vary by its design, load capacities, speeds, and more, it is very important that the correct bearing is implemented within a system to avoid costly failures or downtimes. In this blog, we will discuss some of the main considerations that should be made when deciding between bearings, allowing you to narrow down your search with ease.
