How do you make an aircraft?
You will usually have to buy a kit because the FAA will have to certify the aircraft and it's is hard to get that if you don't use a kit. Some kits have a 2 week to taxi program in which you go into a class where you build your plane in two weeks. Most kits cost around $100,000 to $150,000 but I would look around not only for the right price but for the right kind of aircraft.

if you have a commercial licence, and can find a customer who is willing to pay, yes. with the price of avgas these days, I wish you good luck!
Aluminum alloys are used to make aircraft because they are much stronger than steel pound for pound. Another advantage is that aluminum is corrosion resistant. Aluminum is very lightweight for its strength. This makes it an ideal material for airplanes where every extra pound of weight means one …less pound of payload. Many modern aircraft are now being made of composite materials which are even lighter (and stronger) than aluminum. Not exactly aluminum,an alloy of Al "MAGNALIUM".Magnalium is expensive than aluminum and having high strength and low density. Aluminium is light,yet strong enough to withstand abuses to an airplane (MORE)

None. He made sketches for a couple of different aircraft, none of which were ececuted.
Yes, but this would be impractical and could pose many safety hazards. Pumping helium into the various nooks & crannys of the airframe would require not only that those voids be sealable, but would also require the hardware needed to pump in the gas and safely vent it for maintenance. This added …hardware and complication would negate any benefit you might get from the lifting force of helium. Additionally, doing so would also severely complicate maintenance and repair of the aircraft, as all panels now need to be air-tight. Heavier materials and gaskets would have to be used in some areas, and control lines would have to pass through the various sealed compartments, but still be accessible for inspection. In conclusion, there are much easier ways to make an aircraft 100 or 200 lbs lighter without reinventing them. It would not work in most cases. Helium is used in an airship in such a way so it displaces the heavier air, thus making it "lighter than air". If you compressed the Helium into spaces then it would not displace any air. Assume we tried this on an old biplane. If we could seal the wings and fill them with Helium, would the aircraft be lighter? Maybe be a very small amount. My guess is only a few pounds. The weight of the material or coating to seal the wings would be heavier and negate the benefits---IMHO. (MORE)
The aircraft that has had the most fatalities is the Boeing 747 it has been in the most innocents
It works in the same way as a fan it pushes air due to the angle or pitch of the blades
There are a lot of companies that make jet aircraft. There are two big ones, Airbus and Boeing.
Aluminum-magnesium alloys are used in making parts in aircraft. Aluminum-magnesium alloys are lighter than other aluminum alloys and much less flammable than alloys that contain a very high percentage of magnesium. . Aluminum alloys are alloys in which aluminum (Al) is the predominant metal. The t…ypical alloying elements are copper, magnesium, manganese, silicon and zinc. . Aluminum alloys are widely used in engineering structures and components where light weight or corrosion resistance is required. . Alloys composed mostly of aluminum have been very important in aerospace manufacturing since the introduction of metal skinned aircraft. (MORE)
What are the two most important properties of aluminum that allows it to be used to make aircraft bodies?
\nAluminum Alloy is easily machined and easy to forge.\n. \nAluminum Alloy is about 1/3 the weight of steel.
Sodium is a highly unstable and reactive substance, which reacts badly with any moisture; whether it be in the air or on the ground. This means any aircraft made of sodium would likely explode (literally) before it could even take off. Not that anyone could finish making it first. Also, sodium… is highly expensive, and may even cost more to make an aircraft than it's current metals. Sodium is also highly dangerous to touch with human skin, as it literally sinks into the skin, which is very dangerous. (MORE)
Generally, Balsa or Basswood would be used. Occasionally, Obeche is used, though it is much harder to find. ANS 2 If your aircraft is going to fly it would have to be made of balsa and tissue covered. All other woods are too heavy for flying models.
Depends on the aircraft. For example, an F-18 kind of sounds likehowl or moan that starts off low and get high until you here theabove mentioned noise. The F-15 has a very annoying, high pitched,squeel after it has started but not when it is flying.
Depends upon the country (nation). Example (for ground units): During the Vietnam War, an Australian tank regiment of Centurion tanks was equal to a US Army battalion; an Australian tank Squadron was equal to a US Army tank company.. So, for US air units, (during the Viet War) a squadron was about …15 to 18 aircraft, with normally about 12 of those being airworthy during any 24 hour time period. (MORE)
first bend the creses really good so they fly better. then you kiss them good luck and make it fly
There are already many passenger helicopters on the market, all of which are capable of vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL).
This occurs at Mach 1, which is the speed of sound. At this speed the sound waves traveling out in front of the aircraft become compressed into a single intense front or "shock wave" which forms a cone shape with the point of the cone on the aircraft's nose, and spreading out behind the aircraft. If… you're standing on the ground as the low flying jet goes past, you will hear the "boom" as the shock wave passes you. By the way, thunder is also a variety of sonic boom produced naturally by air collapsing at nearly the speed of sound around a lightning bolt. (MORE)
Making an aircarft is not easy. It takes time and effort. First you need to find what are all the parts and other things required to build it. Then you have to build it. Only experienced persons can build even small aircrafts like aeronautical engineers, airplane mechanics etc..
Aluminum is used in aircraft due to it's low weight to cost ratio, materials such as Carbon Fiber or Titanium are lighter but far more expensive.
Aluminum is light weight metal. So it helps the aircraft to have more lift. Also it is very strong and durable.
Many reasons mainly that aluminum is lighter and is flexible and will not shatter like glass. That being said, aircraft bodies have been made of composite materials like fiberglass (or carbon fiber, or occasionally Kevlar) which is glass cloth with a epoxy binder. Also Plywood (the spruce goose) …also canvas cloth stretched across a frame and then coated with "dope" to stiffen it. (MORE)
Lift on an airplanes wing is what makes it stay in the air. Of course, lift diminishes the slower you go so eventually the plane will lose lift and begin to fall.
The engines provide forward thrust, allowing the wings to generate lift. It is the lift that allows the aircraft to take off.
Yes, especially military aircraft. Civil aircraft have a fuselage made of an aluminum alloy. However, parts of the aircraft are still made from titanium.
Mostly thousands of tons of steel. The hull of the ship, and the floors, walls and ceilings of all compartments within it are steel. So are most engine components, though nuclear powered carriers have more exotic materials in the engine room. There were also thousands of miles of copper wire, though… on todays ships fiber optic cables have replaces some of this copper wire. The flight deck of WWII carriers was wood, planks laid over a steel deck. (MORE)
Aluminum is useful in the aerospace industry because of its relatively high strength to weight ratio, fair corrosion resistance, and because it is generally easy to machine.
Why Does The United States of America decommission aircraft carriers and does it make the country weaker?
The United States Navy decommisions all types of ships, including aircraft carriers. One reason they do it because the ship's technology is to old or to expensive to update. Another could be because the service is no longer using that type of ship anymore. You wouldn't expect us to use the same ship…s we used in World War I, would you? Decommissioning ships doesnt make the country weaker because usually those ships are replaced with more technologically advanced ships. It would make the country weaker if we didnt replace them, but since we do replace them with better ships, the country actually gets stronger. (MORE)
Aircraft batteries are there primarily to provide power should the engines fail in flight and work individually or alongside the auxillary power unit (APU). It provides 28V dc electric to the primary displays ( i.e. Altimeter and EHSI).
Not enough! No in all seriousness we get on average Â£24k in the first years of A/T, but it really is dependant on what licence you hold or EASA A, B, C and which type ratings you have you could just earn Â£12k per year but believe me you will earn much more once you gained more exp, some people… earn over Â£100k per year!

What happends is when the engine spins really fast they have these little blade like things in the engine and it spins really fast sending the aircraft into the air
First the strength of the wing must be such that it can safely carry the weight of the airplane when flying inverted as well as upright and secondly if the flight is to be inverted for more than about 10-20 seconds at a time it must have been modified to include an inverted fuel feed system to the e…ngine so that the engine will not stop running when flying inverted. Concerning a conventional wing profile (flat on the bottom and curved on top) the pilot manipulates the controls so that the craft will roll over into the inverted position and he/she will keep wings level using ailerons and maintain level flight by pushing forward on the control column. The plane will fly slower with the same power applied than it would if upright because the lift is now being created solely by the force of the air against the bottom of the wing which is now the curved surface that was the top of the wing when flying upright. It is just the wing keeping the plane in the sky by the same force as you experience when holding your hand palm down out in the airstream created by a speeding car and you tilt your hand backward and feel the rushing air try to push it upward. Basically that is why a plane does not fall out of the sky when flying inverted. (MORE)
about 100 to 300 can be made into one tire of an air craft depending on the plane if it is a small plane it will only be 50 to 100 basket balls
Boeing of USA and Airbus of Europe Makes such planes and sell to all world airline companies. There are other aircraft companies who makes commercial planes but not as big as 747 or 737.
Depends on the year of manufacturing, speed of aircraft , purpose of window and desired shape. WW1 = Glass, WW2 = Acrylic, laminated glass, 1960's Laminated plastics and polycarbonate, Now special laminated blends of glass and plastics and transparent aluminum, chemically speaking.
The aircraft carrier was a major support in world war 2. Take the battle of Midway for example, almost the WHOLE battle was the carriers launching their aircraft at one another. also, Aircraft carriers made the bombing of japan possible in the middle of the war.

DC-10s were made by McDonnell-Douglas. "DC" means "Douglas Commercial." McDonnell-Douglas was purchased by Boeing, so if your DC-10 needs parts you order them from Boeing now.
There is no single person that makes aircraft, however there are many different companies that do such as: Boeing, Cessna, Mooney, Diamond, Cirrus, Embraer, Bombardier, Piper, Airbus, and many more. If you are referring to the people who made the first working aircraft then the answer is Orville and… Wilbur Wright. (MORE)

A Combi aircraft is a two deck plane that is designed to carry loads of cargo on the upper deck. Normal airliners, however, typically have just one deck.
Very light weight and durable alloys of titanium, aluminum and magnesium are commonly used. this makes air/space travel easier, this also smart money wise.
The Gulfstream V is produced by Gulfstream Aerospace. This vehicle is meant to be used as a private jet for politicians, CEOs, and other very rich and powerful individuals.
One kind of aircraft job and a very good career is to study aeronautical engineering where you get to design aircraft. The other job is to be a pilot and drive the aircraft.
To purchase kits for making model aircrafts, one should visit the local toy stores, such as Toys R Us. Alternatively, try webpage stores such as Amazon or Ebay.
Seeing as the distance from Hawaii to California is about 2,500 miles, the flight you suggest is totally impossible.
The Citation was a name for a line of business jets produced by Cessna. Cessna called its prototype the FanJet 500, which first flew on the 15th September 1969.
The blades on the propeller are angled in such a way that, whilethey are turning, they push air backwards towards the tail of theaircraft. This 'pulls' the aircraft forwards - and the air flowingover the wings lifts the plane into the air.
