Hello Everyone,

Generally, Ground Support Equipment is the support equipment usually found at the airport for aircraft and other terminal usages.
But some of the equipment is only used to service the aircraft for maintenance purposes

Everyone aware Ground Support Equipment means servicing and maintaining aircraft and other airport usages, Of course, correct But in-depth there are many tools and equipment involves for many factors to support and service the aircraft.

TYPES OF AIRCRAFT GROUND SUPPORT EQUIPMENT (GSE) :

Air Start Unit
Ground Power Unit
Aircraft Air Conditioning Unit
Static Frequency Converter
Electric Baggage Tractor/Apron Tractor
Load Bank AC/DC
Auxiliary Power Unit
And Many More

Here above I've mentioned the major key Ground Support Equipment which is used for Aircraft GSE Requirements.

So When you are selecting and purchasing Ground Support Equipment, Try to know the basic procedures and foundation for good Aircraft GSE.I hope I provided a short information about Ground Support Equipment used for aircraft

For More Information Air+Mak Industries.

Landing is one of the most complex part of flying especially when it comes to windy,rainy, snowy and foggy conditions. Point is to maintain the plan in straight line and bring it few feet above the grond and slow down its speed. When plan is unable to fly any more, bring it smoothly down on tires. And apply brakes

Really depends who you think your audience is. Lay people may just want to know how a plane flys or why certain things happen on commercial flights. Pilots may want to learn about skills/ratings they havent acquired yet, recent incidents.

The pilot of the aircraft with the compressor stalls was calling "mayday mayday mayday" then explaining his problem. The response was the tower acknowledging the mayday call and telling the pilot that he's cleared for any runway that he needs.

They could. Lindbergh flew across the Atlantic without autopilot.

He would be stretching himself too thin to do it all at once. Airport police chief would require all his time spent on the ground, so being a pilot is possible, it would be impractical.

its all about relative motion and being part of the earth atmosphere system, the plane is matched in speed with the earth. its the same reason we dont fly away when we jump up.

I recently browsed a forum where this was debated by the FE believers vs normal OE people. (Obloid Earth).
The FE'ers simply believe that photos, videos etc are hoaxes. :))

James,

There are navigation and softwares inside the cockpit so pilot can find easily as well as air traffic controllers will guide them so they can easily land there....
with regards,

Technically anyone could get in and start a big jet aircraft, but it would have to be pointing in the right direction. Getting a large transport jet going is allot more complicated than just starting the engines. The whole aircraft has a multitude of systems that have to be brought on line even before the start is selected. Failure to do so would have the computers on board sulk until you said good morning to them. The first operation, thus, is to 'power-up' the aircraft, this means to establish electrical power. This can be done in two ways, one being establishing a ground power unit and secondly, the aircraft's own auxiliary power unit, which is normally a little jet engine in the tail of the aircraft. The APU as it's called (auxiliary power unit) will also supply air pressure for cabin air conditioning and to the air starter units used to spin the main engine turbines at high speed to start the main engines, when commanded to do so. This is why the air-conditioning temporarily goes off when the engines are starting, because the APU cannot supply both engine start air and conditioning air at the same time.
After electrical power has been established, the on-board computers will come to life. Some computers are in their own little world and control things that are fully automatic, you only hear from them if they detect a defect in their own self test. Other computers are in pairs and threes, they monitor each other and alert the pilots and engineers via other computers if any detects faults in the others. There are two or three inertial navigation systems that are driven by lazar light. In each unit there are at least three lazars in different orientation. These units can detect the slightest movement and calculate the position of the aircraft by adding that movement to the aircraft's current position. The IRS units are very - very clever since they measure the movement by measuring the shift in the light spectrum when the aircraft moves. Since they measure movement, they have to know the speed the world spins at and the speed of the earth through space, to deduct that from the small movement on the aircraft in order to calculate the position. Allowing the IRS units to come on line is essential and must be done before main engine start. The aircraft must be completely stationary for this to happen.
After all that has been done the main navigation computers are programed for the route to be flown and with other information. The Flight management computers (as they are called on some aircraft) can also acquire their own information, like how much fuel is on board, and in flight the airspeed of the aircraft the angle at which the aircraft is at and from that it will calculate the weight of the aircraft.
So when all the systems are up and running and the computers have done their thing and have been programmed where required we can carry out all the other checks, switch on the galley power and call for a cup of tea and when we have drunk that we are nearly ready to start the main engines.
When ready to start the main engines the air system has to be re-configured to enable the starters to operate, following that the normal procedure is to place the engine start switch in the auto start position, where all the starting functions are carried out automatically. Both pilots monitor the engine start as sometimes things can go wrong like a hung start or a hot start. These sort of malfunctions can seriously damage a multi-multi million dollar engine in a flash and no pilot would want to be responsible for that. As the engine spins up to speed, at a predetermined percentage RPM the captain will select the fuel switch to the run position which will allow the fuel to be injected into the engine for light-up. Following a normal start the air system is then reconfigured once more as part of the after start check list, along with other post start items.
All in all what I'm trying to say is that it is a complicated procedure and not just about turning a key like a car. So if you were to board a dead aircraft on the tarmac and turn the start switch nothing would happen.
So what if the engineer wanted to run an engine for an engine test, would he have to follow the same procedure? Well, apart from loading the flight data into the flight computer, he would have to do everything else, if only to prevent all sorts of warnings that would occur trying to short cut the procedure, since the only warnings he would wish to see is anything that is relevant to the engine start, otherwise engine starting and running warnings may well be disguised by other more insignificant malfunctions. Hope this has been helpful.

Technically is you are flying domestic you are not flying over foreign airspace. If flying IFR you must file one. Needless to say when filing a flight plan you must decalre if you are domestic of international flight.

There are some speed limits for certain types of airspace. Airliners are always in contact with air traffic control and in order to keep the required separation of aircraft sometimes the controllers will ask the pilot to maintain an airspeed. More than likely you experienced a slowdown while your plane was beginning an approach, During approach controllers have to maintain specific spacing between aircraft and often must slow them down behind slower aircraft. Your plane very likely was slowing down from approx 570 knots to 250 knots or less for the approach.

Changes in terrain and weather, planning assent/descent, and for balloons seeking the desired wind direction to get somewhere.

I can speak confidently but not authoritatively on this, so let's consider this answer tentative. I would be glad to be corrected.

Military gliders were replaced by helicopters after World War II, and no one seems to have found a civilian use for large ones. Unpowered flight is a sport, now, so there don't seem to be any with more than 2 seats. The only recent exception I can think of is the Space Shuttle, which was unpowered during its return from orbit.

The most important reason is that the fuel is kept away from the passengers, improving safety. Your wing bending theory is close. Since the entire weight of the airplane is supported by the wings, keeping the fuel there reduces the amount of structure to transfer the weight of the fuel to where it is supported by the wings. In most airliners, having the fuel in the wings reduces the amount of plumbing to get it to the engines. Finally, it's important to keep the airplane balanced fore and aft. Keeping the fuel in the wings near the center of gravity reduces the amount of adjustment needed as the fuel is burned.
