Yi Li Intro to Aviation Flight report On Tuesday of the sixth week this quarter, with excitement, I went up to the airport, and got ready for my first time “pilot” experience. As soon as I got there, I met my flight instructor, and started the paperwork. After that, I got my headset and head to the plane I was about to flight. From there, we started the pre-flight. First, my flight instructor and I walked around the airplane, he introduce to me every part of the airplane, such as the nose, the propeller, the wings and so on. When he talked about the wings, he also showed me the Angle of incidence, which is the angle if attachment of the wing to the plane. He then told me their functions, and how everything works together as a whole. Then he started to get samples of “gas”, which looked like pure oil to me, and it is very clear. He explained the reason he did this is to check the pure level of the gas, as when it rained, sometimes water or other small substance may get in. As this gas has very small density, anything get in would sink to the bottom. He repeated this procedure four times, and all the samples are pure. After this, we started to head into the airplane. We adjusted the seat, wore seat belt and lab belt, closed the door, plugged in the headset wire for communication, putted on the headset and he started the engine. Immediately, I saw the propeller spin very fast, and heard the noise. Then we started the preflight check list, after everything is checked, he stepped on the rudder pedals and the airplane started to move. We turned a little, and got into the main runway. My flight instructor started to communicate with the Air Traffic Control Center and asked permission to take off, which he explained to me later, is Departure control. When we got to the end of the runway, we got the respond and had the permission to take off. So we turned around again, and then started to accelerate. He told me about the accelerate fluid and non accelerated fluid, and according to the Bernoulli’s principle, an accelerate fluid has less pressure than a non accelerated fluid. As we accelerate, he explained to me the take off roll, which is the distance required to take off. Right after he explained, he pulled the control yoke, and we took off. About a minute after we took off, we had our first left turn. He told me this is the traffic pattern, which 500 feet after take off, turn left. Also, as soon as we took off, the rudder pedals does not work any more, the control yoke is what works. Soon after we turned, we got to the center, where we neither landing nor departing. He then told me that all I need is only three fingers to control the airplane, and that is because when pilots flight alone, they need another hand to control the engine power and so on. Later after we leveled the flight, he had me to try to turn left and turn right, and play with the control yoke, just not to…

California has the worst air pollution in the whole United States. What are the politics doing to help improve the air quality? Well, governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed to become the first nation’s law to regulate greenhouse emissions. With the desire in having a better air, many ideas, laws, and plans have been presented to regulate greenhouse gases that…
As pilots, passengers, safety managers, and ground support, we are all affected by how efficient our national airspace system is. Whether it is in the air, taxing on the ground, or in the terminal, we have all had to deal with a delay of varying lengths. Most of the inefficient use of our time is due to ground delays. Ground traffic flow is the movement of aircraft to and from the runway as planes arrive and depart. It is vital to the smooth and continuous operation of an airport since…
On August 3, 1981 nearly 13,000 of the 17,500 members of the Professional Air Traffic Controllers Organization (PATCO) walked off the job, hoping to disrupt the nation's transportation system to the extent that the federal government would accede to its demands for higher wages, a shorter work week, and better retirement benefits. At a press conference in the White House Rose Garden that same day, President Reagan responded with a stern ultimatum: The strikers were to return to work within 48 hours…
Research in Europe), which is committed to developing technology that can help to reduce CO2 emissions by 50% per passenger kilometre by 2020 relative to a 2000 baseline. This goal requires improvements to be made in engines and aircraft as well as air traffic management and operations.
The Environmentally Friendly Engine programme will be a key contributor to meeting this target by reducing engine emissions by 10-15%. The £95m programme is led by Rolls-Royce and includes industrial and university…
played by test engineer. These engineers would construct the architect of testing i.e. way of testing or testing process. In beginning of any test, we should understand whether the test is done on the existing system or a completely new system. Since airport system already exist and our project deals with the improvement to existing system, we would discuss on changes that are planned to be done on the system compared to existing system. These changes are discussed below on the basis of

Now there is roughly one major accident per 1 million
flights with increased air traffic by 2015 there would be one
fatal crash a week. (CNN.com) So in the near future if
stricter regulations are not placed on the people building,
inspecting and flying these planes. Future airplane
crashes will be responsible for killing hundreds of people a
week. Air safety is also important because it effects
America’s economy. American airlines alone logged 9.5 million
Delta Air Lines INC is a major United States airline that services both domestic and international travel. Delta is part of the “big four” legacy airline carriers, contributing to approximately 15.1% of the US domestic airline market share. Delta and its subsidiaries offer flights to 341 destinations with over 13,000 flights daily. Established in 1924, agricultural scientist Collet Woolman founded Delta as a crop dusting service. A few years later, the crop dusting service broke away and formed…

“Osceola traffic, Skyhawk 79118 at Alpha 1, departing one-zero, close patter, Osceola,” I called out to surrounding air traffic.
Osceola traffic-what airspace I was in, Skyhawk 79118-who I am, at Alpha 1-where I am specifically, departing one-zero (the runway name) close pattern-my intentions. Close pattern means I am just taking off and flying the plane in the traffic pattern right away after departure. Finally finishing my call with Osceola-elaborating…

Through the history of aviation the importance of airport security has steadily increased. Since the disastrous terrorist attack of September 11, 2001, many changes have taken place at airports to prevent such an attack from occurring again. The purpose of this paper is to: outline airport security procedures, discuss the different technologies involved with airport security, as well as examine…
