In the world of aviation, routine maintenance is an integral part of aircraft ownership. Due to the importance of maintenance, aircraft owners should only work with experienced aviation mechanics who understand the unique needs of your specific model. One vital part of aircraft maintenance consists of looking over the exhaust system. Over the years, certain aviation companies have garnered popularity for being exceptional aircraft exhaust maintenance experts.

For most modern aircraft, flight is achieved through the use of internal combustion engines, those of which compress, mix, and ignite fuel-and-air mixtures to create the necessary thrust for lift generation and forward momentum. Once combustion is finished and the resulting exhaust gasses have been harnessed for power, they must be expelled from the engine to mitigate pressure and temperature build-up. Since exhaust gasses are extremely hot as a result of combustion, it is crucial that proper temperature monitoring is put in place to ensure that heat levels remain within safe ranges. Generally, this is done with the use of an exhaust gas temperature (EGT) gauge, that of which is a monitor that measures exhaust temperatures with the use of a thermocouple-type pyrometer.

You may have wondered before, why many jet airliners have engines mounted at the front of and below their wings rather than behind them. While there are planes that have their engines placed on the back, wing-mounted engines are commonly used on commercial transport planes for several key reasons. The popular Boeing 737 for example, has two large turbine engines installed in pods at the front of its wings. In the following blog, we will be discussing the major benefits of wing-mounted engines along with some adverse maneuverability effects to keep in mind.

General Aviation has grown exponentially over the last few decades, and this growth is largely attributed to the advancement and production of high-performance piston aircraft. Not only have these aircraft accelerated the ability to train pilots, but they have also provided the general public with the means to own and fly advanced airplanes. However, the technical definition of “high-performance” aircraft has varied over the years.

Aircraft seats are integral in keeping passengers safe and comfortable. Unlike the seats found in other passenger vehicles, the aviation sector must balance economy with comfort. Over the years, airline seats have been continually improved, giving travelers more entertainment and storage accommodations throughout the flight. However, the configuration and mounting techniques have generally remained the same. In this blog, we will discuss the layout, design, and amenities associated with airline seats.

When conducting system checks in aircraft, there are countless components to investigate and many more tools to use for the process. Many of these systems are pneumatic, meaning they rely on pressurized air to perform functions like pressurization, cooling, sensing, and more. When working with these systems, it is important to monitor the air to ensure it is operating at an ideal pressure range. This demand can be met with air-ring gauges. Air-ring gauges, also referred to simply as ring gauges, are parts used to measure the air pressure within a cylindrical object by fitting around the exterior circumference of the cylinder, or workpiece. They are made of thermally stable metals like steel, and they function to measure the diameter of the object around which they fit. Air-ring gauges provide the ability to measure air pressure through this function, and we will further discuss the types available, as well as their applications, in the blog below.

Servos are small, modular actuators developed by the radio control (RC) industry to remotely control or move various parts and surfaces to the desired angular position of the operator. They can even be found in airplanes for moving aircraft wings, boats for their rudders, cars for their steering linkages, or parachutes for their release mechanisms. The servo is a device that can be programmed with different settings to achieve a desired result. They have garnered popularity for their ability to optimize size, speed, and torque while also costing less than other mechanical or electrical components, making them an ideal generic actuator used by aircraft manufacturers across industries.
