  • Characterizing Cabin Noise
    Directives to assess and minimize cabin noise have become a top priority for the aerospace industry. From large. commercial jets, to helicopters, to small propeller aircraft the need is the same, which is for a reduction of cabin. noise. This is critical to the commercial success
  • In the Making: Padded and Flexible Parts for Aircraft Interior Applications
    Extending from the flight deck in the fore to lavatories in the aft, General Plastics' flexible polyurethane foam parts play integral yet unsung roles in today's aircraft. While few prompt even a second thought from passengers, our build-to-print flight deck and passenger cabin molded parts have
  • Adhesive Tapes for Solutions Cleared for Take Off
    Adhesive tapes and other fastening materials have been developed to specifically comply with various burn tests as mandated by FAR 25.853. These tests are used for determining material viability for use in both the cabin and cargo compartments of an aircraft.
  • Rutan Tag Team Enters the Space Race
    An innovative two-craft approach to putting humans in space could earn its designers the X-Prize. The White Knight aircraft will carry SpaceShipOne to 53,000 ft and release it. The spaceship carries the FAA designation N328KF (328,000 ft roughly equals 62 miles). The White Knight uses hydraulic
  • Security of Flight Doors Improved Through Use of MTI-2100 Fotonic Sensor
    deck door locking systems, must quickly and positively seal aircraft cockpit doors against unauthorized cockpit entry but also be capable of opening upon a sudden loss of cabin pressure. Since the solenoid latch needs to complete the locking or unlocking cycle in as quickly as 13 milliseconds
  • Miniature fittings enhance airline beverage service
    Designers increasingly rely on pneumatics for clean, fast, reliable, and economical automation systems. A new beverage-dispensing cart eliminates the need for bottles and cans. Beverage service aboard commercial aircraft has changed little since the 1950s. Flight attendants wheel a mobile service
  • Electric actuators replace hydraulics in flight simulators
    Electric actuators replace hydraulics in full-flight simulators while still maintaining that aircraft "feel. " Every aircraft flies with its own special feel stemming from its flying and handling parameters. Pilots develop a special sense tuned to the feel of the plane that lets them react
  • Lowering The Toll On The Highway To Space
    . Roton's two-person crew will be able to remain in space for up to 72 hr, but the primary mission, satellite insertion, is only a five-orbit or 7.5-hr mission. The Roton crew wears pressure suits resembling those worn on the SR-71 Blackbird. In case of cabin depressurization, the crew can complete
  • Causing a stir in welding
    Friction stir welding joins previously unweldable materials. As the tool moves along, frictional heat plasticizes material from the front of the rotating pin to the back. The material consolidates and cools to form a solidstate weld. The lower cabin assembly of the Eclipse 500 jet was assembled
