Problems in Air Traffic Control and Proposed Solutions
Problems in Air Traffic Control and Proposed Solutions In northern California this summer, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) unintentionally performed it's first operational test of free flight; aviation without direct air traffic control. This was an unintentional experiment because it was a result of a total shut-down of the Oakland Air Route Traffic Control Center (ARTCC). Although Oakland is only the 16th busiest ARTCC, it's responsible for the largest block of airspace of any ATC

5 Modes of Transportation
5 Modes of Transportation In order to have easy mobility of persons and goods, it is necessary to have a sophisticated and widespread transportation system. This system is made up of five primary areas of transportation, which are: · Motor vehicles · Railroad transportation · Air transportation · Water transportation · Pipelines Each of these five modes consists of different subsystems which make up the system. Each mode is used to transport persons or goods, but in many instances, one mode may

On the night of July 17, 1996 TWA flight 800 left New York’s JFK Airport en-route to it’ destination of Paris, France. At approximately 8:31 PM a strange explosion ripped through the Boeing 747 jumbo jet violently taking the lives of 230 helpless people that on board the aircraft and threw them into the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Long Island. Almost immediately, as news of the tragedy began to circulate, theories and possible explanations of the cause began to surface. Was it a terrorist b

Plane Crash Instructor: Greg Alston Abstract This paper examines the in-flight separation of the number two pylon and engine from a Boeing 747-121 shortly after takeoff from the Anchorage International Airport on March 31, 1993. The safety issues discussed focus on the inspection of Boeing 747 engine pylons, meteorological hazards to aircraft, the lateral load-carrying capability of engine pylon structures, and aircraft departure routes at Anchorage International Airport during turbulent weather

Airport Security 1 Since September 11, 2001, airport security has been raised in the United States. Most major airports had the National Guard posted at terminals and other parts of airports. Doing airport security checks, and taking over the screener jobs. Because of the events the occurred on 9/11, the FAA, Federal Airline Association, has been really strict on what people ca take with them on planes. They will not even allow people to take plastic knives or forks, because those can be consid

Hatred Why does everyone hate the United States? Everyone hates the U.S. because everything that goes wrong in the world today is the fault of the U.S. Our military consists of 1.5 million highly trained people and tens of thousands of machines capable of getting them very quickly to where they are needed. Yet though we claim to be interested in justice and human welfare we generally don't bother to act to protect non-citizens. For example, impending genocide in Rwanda elicited the following quo
Deregulation
Deregulation
Deregulation The airline industry has been subject of intense price competition since it was deregulated, and the result has been a number of new carriers which specialize in regional service and no-frills operations. These carriers typically purchase older aircraft and often operate outside the industry-wide computerized reservations system. In exchange for these inconveniences, passengers receive low fares relative to the industry as a whole. This research examines two low fare air carriers, V

The extent to which wind shear presents a hazard to aircraft has been
The extent to which wind shear presents a hazard to aircraft has been well documented in the last ten years. Since some wind shear can occur in otherwise relatively good weather, the most hazardous kind, a microburst, is associated with rain showers and thunderstorms even thought the parent storm may not be discernible. It was not until the early 1970's that the National Transportation Safety Board was able to obtain the level of data form flight recorders to quantify wind shear. This data beca

Tahiti Dear: Vacationer I am glad you have chosen Tahiti as your vacation spot. I think you should have some history on the island. Tahiti was discovered in 1768 by French explorer Louis Antoine de Bougainville who claimed the island for France. Here are facts on the island. The size of the island of Tahiti is 1036 sq.km. The island is consisted of two circular, uneven parts. The total population of Tahiti’s island is 130,000 people. The capital city of Papeete has 23,555 people of that populat

The Year 2000 Problem Where did this problem come from? What is going to happen on January 1st, 2000? What will we be doing on New Year's Eve 1999? Will we be partying and celebrating like it's the beginning of the new millenium or will we be storing up on food, gas, and batteries for our survival? According to Professor Bill Erdly, Director of Computing and Software Systems at UWB, the Y2K problem certainly does exist and can result in some major problems if not corrected. (Nelson-White, 1/1

History of the Concorde project actually goes back to a 1955 propositi
History of the Concorde project actually goes back to a 1955 proposition for a supersonic transport aircraft. The British aircraft producer Bristol Aviation, under the 1956 Supersonic Transport Aircraft Committee, or STAC, developed a model known as the Type 198. The Type 198 could fly across the Atlantic at twice the speed of sound. Power was to have been provided by eight engines. It had a slender fuselage and delta wing. A delta wing is a large single wing which takes the place of a main win

Introduction Science and technology are advancing at a very rapid rate, but do we really understand all that is going on? Probably not. This paper will identify current issues related to science and technology from the business, governmental, and societal perspectives. However, before we can begin to understand the advances in science and technology, we must know the definitions of them. The Microsoft Encarta 97 Encyclopedia on compact disk defines science as the observation, identification, d

The Myth of the Plague of Sexual Harassment
The Myth of the Plague of Sexual Harassment One of the most talked-about issues of the past few years has been the issue of sexual harassment, and it supposed prevalence in all workplaces. Pushed to the national spotlight by the Anita Hill-Clarence Thomas hearings, in which Ms. Hill accused her boss Justice Thomas of sexual harassment, it has become popular belief that sexual harassment occurs in all workplaces, and that the vast majority of female office -workers have been sexually harassed.

The FAA The FAA has hindered the development of airline safety because of its policy of safety, its regulation of the airline industry, and it needs to be separate from the Department of Transportation. The FAA has hindered the development of airline safety because of its policy of safety. Part of its policy is the cost-benefit rule, which was an executive order issued by President Ronald Reagan in February 1981. This rule stated that the FAA could issue new rules only if they could show the pot

Flight Man has always been fascinated with flight. As soon as there were forms of communication, sculptures, carvings, and paintings of beings with wings appeared. From the winged bulls guarding the halls of ancient Persia to the winged horse Pegasus from Greek Mythology, the idea was clear and simple. To fly is to conquer, to dominate, to be as a god ( Josephy 11- 12 ). These early individuals dreamed and experimented with the idea of flight. In the modern world many people take flight for gran

With greater workloads imposed on pilots as fleets modernize, the reality of he or she exceeding the workload limit has become manifest. Because of the unpredictable nature of man, this problem is
