Fuel serves as the single largest cost for a majority of aircraft operators. In fact, some experts estimate that every pound of an aircraft’s weight, including crew, passengers, baggage, and the aircraft itself, contribute to about $10,000 in annual fuel costs. To reduce aircraft weight and fuel usage, aerospace engineers, aircraft designers, and maintenance organizations are reevaluating 21st century airplanes. In this blog, we will outline four ways changes in aircraft design can help reduce fuel costs and consumption.

Many types of transducers can be found on an aircraft, but one of the most important is the fuel flow transducer. By converting physical energy into an electrical signal, these devices can determine the rate at which fuel is being consumed and communicate that value to the pilot. As an essential instrument in a pilot’s display, it is very helpful for pilots and other aircraft operators to know what a fuel flow transducer is and how it works. In this blog, we will discuss these questions and more, delving deep into the mechanics of this crucial indicator device.

Silicone rubber is a popular material in multiple industry verticals including automotive and aerospace applications, but the innovation of fluorosilicone has introduced additional abilities of rubber materials in these industries. Fluorosilicone rubber (FVMQ) is a variation of silicone with properties that allow it to function in more extreme environments than silicone rubber. Containing trifluoropropyl groups, FVMQ is a complex material that can better withstand exposure to sunlight, ozone, chlorination, or aromatic hydrocarbons. With its many benefits, it is helpful to understand what makes fluorosilicone a smart choice for certain items and not others. This blog will delve into some applications where fluorosilicone should be used as well as the characteristics that differentiate it from silicone.

As airlines continue to move towards nearly 24/7 operations, the demand placed upon aircraft will continue to grow, with most expected to fly over 3-4 times per day. In order for these vessels to remain in a serviceable condition throughout their long days, it is necessary for them to undergo quick yet thorough ground servicing between flights. This service is supported by a catalog of ground service equipment, which comprises handheld or larger tools that serve several roles in the maintenance of the plane. Of this equipment, one of the most instrumental in preventing aircraft damage is the jack. Aircraft jacks perform the critical task of lifting the vessel off the ground to help facilitate maintenance. In this blog, we will discuss the four most common types of aircraft jacks and in what circumstances they should be used.

Bearings are components that prevent direct contact between two metals in relative motion to avoid friction, heat generation, and wear & tear. Since there is no sliding motion, the bearing reduces the energy consumption of moving parts through low friction rolling. In addition, bearings help transmit radial loads, axial loads, or both types of rotating element loads to the housing. Bearings are available in various sizes & shapes, and the choice between types depends on the application and type of loads, namely radial, axial, or a combination of both. Let us discuss each bearing and its subtypes in detail.

Private jet charters and first-class seating in aircraft are two types of air travel. Both of these options cost a tremendous amount of money and offer many luxuries and conveniences to their customers. Before we further discuss the differences between these two forms of air travel, let us first examine each by itself.
