While the number of flight hours continues to decrease, we have seen an increase in the number of accidents/incidents in our state. This glossary of aviation terms will be useful to understand some of the terminology used in this web site, and in our discussion forum.

About Chuck Hawks and this web site: I have been interested in history, particularly military history, since I was a child. Perhaps this is due in part to my father, who served in the USAAF/USAF during both World War II and Korea On the Edge of Flight: A Lifetime in the Development and Engineering of Aircraft. SIDESLIP - A movement of an aircraft in which a relative flow of air moves along the lateral axis, resulting in a sideways movement from a projected flight path, especially a downward slip toward the inside of a banked turn.

MASpares is able to assist with requests for commercial aviation (including Boeing, Airbus, Embraer, Gippsaero/Nomad and Bombardier aircraft). For military aircraft MASpares has strong connections and experience to support a wide range of military aircraft, including C130 Hercules, P3 Orion, F18 Classic and Super Hornet, B737 Wedgetail (AEW&C) and S61 Nuri.

This type of additive does not affect the freezing point of the fuel itself. Anti-icing additives can also provide some protection against microbiological growth in jet fuel. 6. Metal de-activators suppress the catalytic effect which some metals, particularly copper, have on fuel oxidation. 7. Biocide additives are sometimes used to combat microbiological growths in jet fuel, often by direct addition to aircraft tanks; as indicated above some anti-icing additives appear to possess biocidal properties. 8 Intratheater Airlift Functional Needs Analysis (FNA).

Modern times is a term coined for the last couple of centuries in history. And moreover, modern, if used without an explanation should, in my opinion, cover the last parts of all aviation timeline, or military aviation timeline. So it, in my understanding, is used in a sense to differentiate between old (military) aircraft such as premodern kites in 200 BC (for military, they were used by the Mongolian army in 1241 ) and modern aircraft like airplanes Apache over Libya. Armed with two machine guns, it had a top speed of 188 km (117 miles) per hour. Even more powerful engines made two-seat fighters possible. The best of these was the British Bristol F.2b, powered by the 220-horsepower water-cooled Rolls-Royce Falcon, a V-12 engine that gave the Bristol a top speed of almost 120 miles (200 km) per hour. The F.2b was armed with a synchronized machine gun for the pilot and two flexible machine guns for the observer THE LUFTWAFFE THE EPIC OF FLIGHT SERIES.

Test flying helicopters was a tenuous activity, and early on, many of our helicopters were "tethered" to the ground until we were satisfied they could properly hover. Has it that an early ATC commander flew a new helicopter that was supposed to be tethered, but wasn't Aircraft Recognition Guide (Jane's Recognition Guide). These were the most powerful offensive combat formations the U. Army has ever fielded to date, and if given a mission of world-wide power projection, it could have flown rapidly to anywhere in the world INSIDE USAF transport aircraft and defeated any known enemy, as these formations were our most successful even in Vietnam Napoleon's Line Cavalry: Recreated in Colour Photographs (Europa Militaria Special). However, the general reiterated that Russian strategic bombers never carry nuclear weapons when on combat duty.
