Early aircraft didn’t have brakes— they weren’t necessarily needed— because pilots were able to slow down an aircraft by using slower speeds, soft airfields, and the friction produced from the tail skid. However, as aircraft advanced and became faster and heavier, the need for brakes was quickly recognized. Nowadays, every aircraft is equipped with a type of braking system. They are often more complicated than a car’s braking system and they come in a multitude of options.
Aircraft brakes are most commonly located on the main landing gear and the transmission of brake control input is through mechanical, hydraulic, or electrical linkages. Larger, heavier aircraft often use gear hydraulic pumps because they produce the required hydraulic fluid pressure and volume to safely slow the aircraft down. Not only did brakes become required over time, redundancy systems were eventually required to increase safety in case of primary failures. Large modern aircraft often have multiple independent hydraulic systems that are backed up by accumulators. There are different types and construction of aircraft brakes parts — single disc brakes, dual-disc brakes, multiple-disc brakes, segmented rotor-disc brakes, and carbon brakes.
Single disc brakes include a single disc keyed, or bolted, to each wheel. When the wheel rotates, the disc rotates. Non-rotating calipers are bolted to the landing gear axle flange. When pressure is applied, it is transferred from the calipers to the brake pads, which then utilize friction to slow down the disc and therefore the wheel. Single disc brakes include floating disc brakes and fixed-disc brakes. They are used on lighter aircraft.
When single disc brakes produce insufficient braking friction, dual-disc brakes are used. Multiple disc brakes are used on heavy aircraft because they create more friction and can bear heavier loads. Because friction generates heat, and heavier aircraft require more friction to slow down, slowing down a large aircraft produces excessive heat. This is the purpose of using segmented rotor-disc brakes— they aid in the control and dissipation of heat. Rotor-disc brakes are the most common brakes used on high performance and air carrier aircraft. One of the more modern braking systems is carbon brakes. They utilize the benefits of multiple disc brakes, but they specifically use carbon fiber materials to construct the brake rotors. The benefits include less weight, better heat dissipation, and longer wear.

While aircraft maintenance requirements can be convoluted, the basics are relatively similar. The entirety of a plane and its parts must be regularly inspected according to the Federal Aviation Association (FAA) standards. Aircraft inspection typically involves assessing the condition of various parts and systems especially aircraft brake parts. To ensure an aircraft is fully compliant, one might seek out maintenance practices outlined by the manufacturer, the aid of repair stations, and/or maintenance technicians.
Routine inspections as outlined by the FAA, include a multitude of time-sensitive evaluations. The frequency of evaluations required is dependent on but is not limited to, calendar specifications, flight hours, and/or flight cycles. A flight cycle refers to the particular series of operations that each component of the aircraft encounters on one full flight.
Checks, depending on the aircraft, might include the servicing, cleaning, or troubleshooting of hydraulics, fuel systems, pneumatic systems, avionics, and more. An important tip to remember: each system has its own specified flight cycle limit or lifetime limit. When reached, the part, and/or system, requires immediate replacement. Aviation maintenance professionals should be cognizant of the flight cycle limits specified to a particular aircraft.
For private plane owners, inspection parameters are outlined by a maintenance review board (MRB) upon manufacturing of the aircraft. The final scope of requirements should be published and available to the consumer upon production.
In the case of commercial airliners, civil aircraft are subject to the specifications listed by FAR part 121 subpart L. An MRB must also develop an FAA approved Continuous Airworthiness Maintenance Program (CAMP). This series of measures describes the frequency of checks required, time allotted between each inspection, and part replacement guidelines. Over time, this will include a comprehensive survey of the aircraft. A standard survey will likely include inspection of the engine mounts, fuselage, landing gear, avionics, corrosion risks, wear and tear, and more.
Repair station aircraft maintenance and operations requirements are outlined under Federal Aviation Regulation (FAR) part 43. This section outlines parameters for maintenance, preventative maintenance, and standards for alteration of aircraft, aircraft systems, and aircraft articles. Aircraft maintenance technician’s (AMT’s) must be certified by the FAA. These professionals are regulated by FARs as well, and the requirements applicable to their certification can be accessed under part 65.
Comprehensive maintenance is integral to the longevity and safety of an aircraft. From avionics to landing gear, you can see that each aircraft system has predetermined requirements that help keep maintenance in compliance with the FAA.

When assembling aircraft, it is crucial to follow the rules and regulations which have been set in place by the FAA and other governing and regulatory agencies. Each and every part must be in working condition in order to be allowed on the aircraft. Lack of vigilance can cause many problems and can even result in a manufacturing license being revoked. After all, aviation’s only possible with strict rules to ensure safety.
Fastener parts used must be of high quality and be able to conform to Defense Federal Acquisition Regulations (DFAR). DFAR compliance for metals and alloys is rigorous and sets even higher standards than most other aviation authorities. Their certification ensures all fasteners are made with the same type of metals the manufacturer used.
In addition to DFAR compliance, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) can be used to find a supplier who has the parts needed. Management standard is set by ISO certification. If a supplier is ISO certified, it is guaranteed that that fastener will be of the highest quality. ISO certified suppliers are also very reliable when it comes to fulfilling orders and making deliveries on-time. So not only will you be receiving high-quality aircraft parts, but you will also be receiving high-quality service.
Depending on the type of aircraft, the fasteners used will vary. And, depending on where on the aircraft the fastener is used, it can be subjected to different degrees of stress. In order to ensure safety and reliability, fasteners must be fit for the application that they are designed to fulfill.
Standards for parts used on aircraft should not be taken lightly, as the safety of the aircraft cabin crew and anyone on it is subjected to tremendous risk and consequences.

The aerospace and aviation industry, as you can imagine, is a very strictly regulated one. In the US, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is the body that regulates all aspects of civil aviation — including the aircraft “aftermarket parts” industry. Unlike the automobile industry, replacement parts not manufactured by the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) have to go through thorough scrutiny in order to get the parts manufacturer approval (PMA).
The PMA is approval granted by the FAA to a manufacturer of aircraft parts. In general, in the US, it is illegal to install replacement or modified parts on a certified aircraft without airworthiness approval. An applicant for a PMA can apply in several different ways: they can try to convince the FAA that their part is identical to the OEM part; they can provide evidence that they licensed the part data from the OEM; or they can undergo a thorough analysis and comparison process to the OEM part. But, in order to apply for a PMA and airworthiness, applicants need to identify a least one eligible installation in their application.
PMA applicants need to identify the intended installation in the application in order to permit the FAA to consider the airworthiness of the part. Without the context of an actual design in which the part will be used, airworthiness would be rather difficult to accomplish. Not to mention, it would be meaningless. To this end, the FAA only approves PMA parts in context of an existing aircraft, engine, or propeller product, and not in the context of a sub-assembly or as a mere replacement. Of course, applicants are not limited at only one eligible installation. It is up to their discretion to identify other installations. Afterall, the purpose of the FAA and PMA is not to hinder non-OEM manufacturers, but to create and enforce uniform quality standards in order to ensure aircraft safety.

When people think about their next computer purchase, it almost always comes down to Mac versus PC. And while Mac users boast all they want about the inpiduality and personality of a Mac, PCs are what you want if you truly want a powerful computer that reflects your personality. Building your own PC with hardware parts can be fun and exciting, especially if you love computers or want to do your own build for a specific reason like gaming. However, it can also be challenging and frustrating. Unless you’re prepared. Before you start your build, here are 6 things you need to have a basic understanding of.
1) Central Processing Units (CPU) do all the processing in a system, they are like the brain of your PC. CPUs come in different numbers of “cores”, which determine how much work your PC can handle simultaneously. They generate a lot of heat and therefore require peripheral cooling fans and liquid cooling systems.
2) Motherboard (MOBO) is the main circuit of the PC that all the peripheral hardware is connected to. MOBOs are very specific, so you need to make sure that your components are all compatible with the MOBO.
3) Random Access Memory (RAM) is a memory of your PC. Data is stored and erased here. For higher performance tasks like gaming, get a higher capacity RAM.
4) Graphics Card (GPU) allows computers to do graphics processing separate from the CPU. They give your PC better performance with higher graphic displays.
5) Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is the memory bank of the PC where all the data is actually stored. Instead of HDDs, you can choose Solid State Drives (SSD).
6) Chassis (Case) This is the final piece that holds everything together and protects the hardware. It’s also the most visible part of your custom build.
Of course, these 6 pieces of hardware barely scratch the surface of what it takes to build your own PC, but they are good place to start.

Aviation industry leader, Rockwell Collins, introduced a new system for managing aircraft, fuel and cabin crew expenses – with the hopes that it will make non-stop global operations feasible. The system is a collaboration with Laminaar Aviation Infotech, a company that creates innovative solutions globally for the aviation and airline industries. It has a turnkey, cloud-based design with components covering everything an airline should need for successful operations. Data will be able to flow in real time for optimization of resources and as they claim, it is the only system in the industry that can do so.
Currently, Rockwell Collins is using an operating system called ARINC PaxlinkSM which helps create more efficient operations and enhanced customer satisfaction. This system is a Passenger Service System (PSS) that allow airlines to created tailored solutions for passengers upon check-in, while boarding and during flight load planning; it also provides the airline with a reservation system, inventory management system, a departure control system and weights and balances. As Michael DiGeorge, VP of Commercial Aviation and Network Services at Rockwell Collins, puts it, this system “helps ensure reliability, consistency and high-quality customer service for their airline customers.”
The ARINC PaxlinkSM system is said to pair well with the new resource management system.
“independently or combined to simplify and cost-effectively connect operations from the back office all the way through to passenger-related activities, helping airlines of any size better manage their resources and expenses”;
this statement comes from Rockwell Collins head of Value Added Applications & Solutions and Strategic Partnership, Information Management Services, Heament Kurian. Rockwell Collins hopes that the combination of these two systems will give airlines a complete picture of all operations, allowing them to be more productive and maximize passenger enjoyment.

A recurrent argument in the aviation industry is whether people can use PMA parts or is OEM parts a must when it comes to buying parts?
To start off what is PMA? PMA stands for Parts Manufacturer Approval. PMA parts get production and design approval issued by the FAA. The FAA approves of PMA parts if they are manufactured following with FAA accepted procedure, they need to meet the FAA standards of airworthiness.
OEM is the Original Equipment Manufacturer. For the longest time, original engineer manufacturing had a monopoly on the industry. This monopoly made it harder and harder for plane enthusiasts to get the parts they needed because of sky-high prices and backorders.
Replacement parts started in the 1950’s when pilots needed parts for outmoded WWII planes. Over time, manufacturing companies started popping up to offer those replacement parts. Gradually, controls were added that helped make PMA certification more aligned with OEM certification. Since 2011 FAA updated their regulations. Now, PMA has a different kind of production certificate which gets rid of many differences between OEM and PMA manufacturing.
Still, ever since the commercialization of PMA parts, OEM’s have worked hard to try to delegitimize PMA parts. For starters, OEM’s started a taint campaign saying that PMA parts are knockoffs and will never be as good as the original. They also make suggestions that PMA parts put people at risk, that there is no guarantee that a PMA part will perform as well as OEM parts do.
As a rebuttal PMA parts feel as though their parts are not only similar but that PMA parts are superior air parts. They have the advantage to look at OEM parts performance and then improve their parts based on the results.
OEM Brake Parts vs. PMA Brake Parts
Original Engineer Manufacturer brakes have the luxury of already being on the aircraft when it is first made; that way they have an automatic approval. With PMA parts, they have to prove their worthiness to the FAA with multiple tests. Since PMA parts want to be approved upon the first tests with the FAA, they make sure that they exceed expectations to grantee approval on the first time around.
In conclusion,OEM and PMA parts have to go through the same FAA regulation tests to be certified. However, PMA parts can exceed regular test expectations as a result of the rigorous tests they go through to become certified.

United Technologies subdairy, Pratt and Whitney complete and delivers the beginning of their engine order to Embraer. The first two engines of the entire order begin with the delivery of two Geared fan PW1900G engines destined to be used on an E190-E2 aircraft.
The integrated engines are destined to be ultimately delivered for the end use of Scandinavian airline, Widerøe Airlines. Vice President of Commercial Engine Programs at Pratt & Whitney, Graham Webb states that,
"The delivery of these first two production engines is an exciting milestone for us as we continue to work together with Embraer and Widerøe in preparation of a successful introduction into revenue service"
and could not be more excited to be working with them.
The engine was first introduced in the year 2016 were it was found to be very efficient. To date the PW1900G engine has proven to decrease the burning of fuel by 16 percent, noise print by 75 percent, and nitrogen oxide emissions by 50 percent according to aviationpros.com.
Embraers São José dos Campos, San Paolo, Brazil last line facility received the engines in late December of 2017 with set schedule to insert them the following February.
Upon delivery the engine has received type certificate from the Brazilian Aviation Authority known as the Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil (ANAC). This certificate is similar to the FAA Part 33 type certification and is an essential step onto obtaining the Part 25 Type Certification to be granted to the aircraft.
Due the E190-E2 engines capabilities it has won the trust of about three aircraft platforms to be able to be integrated into them. Its unique performance and different style of engine composition makes this type an engine take precedence over engines for years to come.

Processing Company Intel has released a statement putting a stop to the spread rumor of their company containing a vicious bug in their system. According to a notorious electronic component website known as “the Register” they challenge Intel’s processors with having bugs that could affect systems and possibly steal passwords with other private information.
The website had a lot to reveal about Intel’s current working processors. Stating that current users that had Intel hardware older than ten years would be prime targets to the bugs affects.
Also stating that users with Microsoft’s Windows and Apples OS X would need to obtain what the industry calls patches. Attacking the entire system by guaranteeing that if affected by the bug the user’s system would experience reduced speeds of over 30%.
Still not completely deemed the truly, Intel had words of its own. Per an article by Mercury news it states that Intel believes that it does not have a bug but does have a chip that could be vulnerable to hacking. It also believes that other large companies carry the same problem.
Intel is an enormous contributor to the internet as well as many large corporations that affect everyone involved with the web. The ongoing solutions that Intel has had and executed over the years was enhancing the building of their processors as the hardware makes it less vulnerable to hackers.
Companies are coming together to assist intel on creating solutions with Intel to put a stop to ongoing bug issues. Entities such as Advanced Micro Devices and ARM Holdings are leading contributors to Intel’s prevention team.
During and After the spreading of the bug news, Intel and other intel companies experienced a drop-in stock prices. Drops in percentages beginning at approximately 3.9 to 6.4.
