Halogen light bulb theory
By: Keith Hamburger
Halogen light bulbs work in the same manner as our old friend the incandescent light bulb. You know, the one invented by Thomas Edison.Halogen and incandescent light bulbs operate by heating a filament, most commonly made of tungsten, today, until it glows. The glowing...

There are three axes about which an aircraft can rotate in flight, and therefore it is necessary to have corresponding control surfaces to retain control of the aircraft. An axis is a straight line around which a geometrical figure, in this case an aircraft, can...

Safe flying requires that the pilot knows the speed and altitude that they are flying at. Air speed is measured using small tubes called Pitot tubes (pee-to). These cylindrical tubes are positioned on the aircraft and air naturally flows into them during flight. The tube...

The axis of an aircraft are the most crucial and important things during air-travel. The axis work as a simple steering method, but we as the general public and users of an air-craft would not consider the technicalities and workmanship of what goes on inside...

Wind is the main element contributing to the stability of an airplane. Aircraft require lift to remain airborne, lift generated by wind passing over the wings. The shape of a wing is such that the upper surface is longer then the bottom surface. As the...

With an in flight aircraft the direction and altitude of flight is determined by the three rotational axis operating from a center point within the aircraft. All three axis work together to determine the attitude of the aircraft. The three separate axis of movement are...

If you've ever watched pilots performing acrobatic stunts, you know they do some amazing and complicated maneuvers. Yet, no matter how complex they are, all the movements of the plane can be described in terms of just four types of motion. The first, when the...

All pilots look forward to the day their instructor gets out of the airplane and tells the student that he is ready for that first solo flight. As the student taxis back to the runway, he is planning his flight and already apprehensive about the...

Since early man wandered from his cave, gathered some berries and meandered back to the same cave, he has been using some form of navigation. Basically, navigation is getting from one place to another, hopefully without getting lost. When man was walking around the immediate...

Getting direction and reaching your destination in a road journey is the easiest thing to consider. If at all, we are off the track and stumble over an unknown path, we can always look for a road sign, a gas station or may be a...
