In the last three years, at least 173 people have been killed and more than 700 wounded in 17 ramming attacks around the world (source: http://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-tsa-truck-warning-20170505-story.html).
A New Geared Aviation Diesel Design: Power Transmission through the Camshaft or a Dedicated Internal Driveshaft
Aviation 100LL (100 octane, low-lead) gasoline is produced in relatively small quantities, contains lead, is expensive and difficult to obtain outside the developed world. Jet fuel is widely available, cheaper and has higher energy density than aviation gasoline.
This concept presents a radically new wing design that aims to equip new aircraft designs such as flying car with the aim of emulating the behaviour of helicopters and tilt rotors with much higher efficiency, better performances and higher safety levels.
According to a NASA study published in 1999, there were 160,577 General Aviation aircraft of which 75% had fixed gear. These airplanes have the obvious drag penalty of the gear remaining in the airstream while in flight,
The eXOgon antenna is a broadband, circularly polarized, active, high frequency receiving antenna with switchable polarization sense. It has been known for decades that all ionospherically refracted radio signals are circularly polarized, but virtually nobody is taking advantage of this fact.
In the very near future, pilots will receive better information from DTI autostereoscopic instrumentation and navigation displays. According to NASA, this will result in an 18% improvement in pilot situational awareness.
This proposal closes the gap between old fashioned airplanes and new generation high tech super planes. Main focus is on utilizing affordable standard technique and the latest results from aerodynamic R&D. With this approach production and operating costs will be significant reduced.
