Question about Aircrafts

Who's responsible? I'm sure you've all heard about the BrazillIan soccer team that died in a plane crash. The investigators found absolutely no fuel at the crash site. If not having enough fuel was the cause of the crash wouldn't the pilots be responsible? From what I know pilots are the ones responsible for having enough fuel on the aircraft. What are your opinions?

Is hydrogen the only source of fuel that can replace the current jet fuel for airplanes?


Well technically you can make a ducted fan plane but it is highly inefficient as battery technology is still in its infant stages as well as batteries are still very heavy. Secondly Jet engines are basically high bypass turbines.. They can technically run on many different fuels such as diesel, kerosene, and propane.

Where do you land if there is an emergency during a trans-atlantic flight?


You're stuck with a water landing (ditching). Hopefully at altitude the pilot can see a ship and make the landing in the vicinity of the ship for quick rescue. It so rare for a plane to lose power to all engines though that you should never hear of such an incident. Depending on the route, however, Bermuda may be within gliding distance.

Do airplanes use a key to start?


Depends on the plane. Most small general aviation planes use a key. Larger planes, and commercial airliners do not. The owner of the plane keeps the key with them and in many cases is required to have a secondary locking system of some sort on the plane.

Why do air traffic controllers make bank?


From a pilot perspective, the pilot is ultimately responsible for all operation of the aircraft. This includes following all the instructions of an air traffic controller who often gives their radio commands so fast a stenographer couldn't keep up with it. Often an unbelievable amount of stress, but we can always ask them to repeat slower - though they frequently get a little sarcastic when you ask. Controllers, on the other hand, are responsible for sometimes dozens of aircraft in their sectors and many of them are not talking to the controller. I can imagine an equally huge stress trying to keep the planes that are talking to a controller away from the ones who aren't talking to the controller. So I'd call it fairly even.

Is flying during a snow shower dangerous? I am going back to Los Angeles from Denver on Wednesday, but there is a snow shower.?


As long as the plane is equipped for icing, which all airlines are, there is not really any added danger to flying in snow. Braking on landing may be affected if there's any accumulation but they keep close track on braking ability as each plane lands at the airport. Snow won't affect the way the plane flies as long as the wings are clear of snow on takeoff.

What are the chances of surviving a plane crash at like 30 000ft?


This depends on whether the plane breaks up in flight or just loses power and glides to a landing. Usually a plane can glide and land just fine without the engines if there's a suitable place to set it down.

Scared of plane crash?


The safest time to fly is after such an incident because all pilots are double checking themselves to make sure it doesn't happen to them.

Can military fighter jets use JET - A fuel?


They can use almost any jet fuel on a short term. For longer term use there is usually an adjustment required on the fuel controller.

Is there any advantage to passenger jets carrying fuel in sealed tanks in their wings?


As the wings are lifted by differences in air pressure and gravity acts on the fuselage, the extra fuel load in the wings won't really affect the curvature. Rather, this is for the large storage capacity (volume) of the wings, and the safer option that your fuel tanks are outboard, rather than crew / passengers sitting directly on top of a "belly" tank. In event of a fuel-fire or crash, there is still a chance of fire being extinguished, or fuel-laden wings breaking away in a major crash. The spread-out mass of the wings also adds to stability by increasing the inertia.
