Actuators are essential for all aircraft, serving to control doors, retractable landing gear, position engine vanes and thrust reversers, and adjust parts like the elevator, rudder, ailerons, slats, spoilers, flaps, and all other flight control surfaces. Critical for helping an aircraft remain in flight, it is essential for parts like an actuator to continuously provide reliability and integrity for improved aircraft efficiency. To better understand the importance of actuators and their role within aircraft, we will navigate through their history and how they are capable of making aircraft faster, easier to maneuver, and more cost-effective.

Airplane tires are not at all like regular vehicle tires because they need to withstand a staggeringly wide extent of temperatures that go from short 60 degrees Celsius at a height of 10,000 meters to exceptionally high temperatures while showing up on the ground. It is thus ten times more important that plane tires are treated with considerably more care than your standard vehicle tires. Plane tires are tubeless, have a load of around 12 to 18 bar bearing weight, and are stacked up with nitrogen as opposed to just air. Right when all of these components are collected, the result is that plane tires should be changed after every 120 to 400 intervals relying on the plane model and factors (for instance, the runway, the atmosphere, and the pilot. These are just a few things you can do to take care of your tires (like checking your anti skid systems, aircraft brakes, hydraulic fluids, and aircraft engines), but for more information, see the article below.

The transmission of a car is critical for the operation of a vehicle. A vehicular transmission is a machine that connects the power of the engine to the wheels of the car. This allows for the transmission to utilize engine power to spin wheels at a certain rate of revolution. Transmissions are often specifically designed with the vehicle in mind, and there may be many parts that assemble together to provide the basic functions needed for driving. In this blog, we will discuss the common components of the transmission, such as those within FSC 2520 Vehicular Power Transmission Components, and how they each function.

There are a variety of services that are available for aircraft before takeoff and after landing is made. These services, called ground handling, can include things like cabin service, catering, passenger service, field operation service, etc and what they all have in common is that they all must enlist the support of ground support equipment. Ground support equipment is industry jargon for equipment designed with the purpose of supporting the safe operations of the aircraft. This equipment, usually kept on a ramp near the terminal when not in use for quick accessibility, includes a variety of different items, some of which you can read about in the outline below.
