Goodbye to the A380, the biggest passenger plane there ever was

The largest commercial passenger plane in the world, the A380, is a double-decker behemoth with four engines, a wingspan of 262 feet, and a cabin that can hold more than 500 people. It has enough space inside of it, Airbus says, to fit 35 million ping-pong balls, if you count its cargo hold along with its two main decks. It first left the ground in 2005, and on Valentine’s Day 2019, Airbus announced it would stop producing the aircraft. The last vessels will be delivered in 2021. Read moreRead more

Five myths about private jets

If you’ve ever spotted a private jet in flight or on the tarmac, you’ve probably wondered which celebrity it belonged to. The fact is that many jets are chartered, not privately owned by a fat cat or pop star, and they’re mostly used for business, not lavish vacations. It’s a world shrouded in mystery, so here are five myths about private jets. More on USA Today

The Biggest Private Jet Stories For 2019 Predicted

Private jets were already in the news this year when reports that as many as 1,500 would descend on the World Economic Forum in Davos drove a number of stories highlighting one of the agenda items was global warming. We asked a variety of leaders from business aviation what they believe will be the biggest headlines for the industry in 2019. Answers ranged from green fuel and alternatively powered aircraft to Brexit, China, the pilot shortage, new models, a tightening market of used aircraft available for sale, the government shutdown, consolidation, shared charters, the cost of capital, technology, weather and regulations that could ground older jets.

Some history on the Jet Aircraft

Whereas the engines in propeller-powered aircraft generally achieve their maximum efficiency at much lower speeds and altitudes, jet engines and aircraft achieve maximum efficiency (see specific impulse) at speeds close to or even well above the speed of sound. Jet aircraft generally cruise at faster than about Mach 0.8 (609 mph, 981 km/h or 273 m/s) at altitudes around 10,000–15,000 metres (33,000–49,000 ft) or more. Frank Whittle, an English inventor and RAF officer, developed the concept of the jet engine in 1928,[1] and Hans von Ohain in Germany developed the concept independently in the early 1930s. He wrote in February 1936 to Ernst Heinkel, who led the construction of the world’s first turbojet aircraft and jet plane Heinkel He 178. However, […]

Supersonic jets are booming back into style

You might not remember, but there used to be a jet called the Concorde that had a cruising speed of 1,354 mph, which is twice the speed of sound. New York City to London, typically a seven-hour flight, only lasted three-and-a-half hours on the Concorde. But the Concorde went bust in 2003, and supersonic jets fell out of favor. A new crop of aviation startups is hoping to resurrect it, and thanks to a new set of laws in the US, that comeback seems all but assured. From The Verge

Black Boxes: Why airplanes still manage to disappear?
