While it is rare for an aircraft to catch fire, accidents and equipment malfunctions can happen, making it important to always have a fire detection system in place. As such, nearly all aircraft are fitted with automatic smoke, flame, heat, and gas detectors, all of which keep a plane and its occupants safe. While these sensors are most crucial to have in the engine compartment, it is common to find them placed throughout the vessel. With this, knowing the different types that may be present on an aircraft can be helpful for crew and passengers alike.

A ball screw is a form of mechanical actuator that combines the use of a screw with ball bearings. Consisting of a screw shaft and a nut that contains one or more balls which roll between their matching helical grooves, ball screws function by converting rotational motion to linear motion. They accomplish this by using rolling balls in the helical grooves of the screw to replace sliding friction with rolling friction. As a result, ball screws are useful for transmitting motion smoothly with less wear on internal components.

Operating across a variety of freezing environments, aircraft exposed to moisture are at risk of the dangers of ice formation. Forming on the wings, rotor blades, and other crucial areas, ice threatens flight safety from many angles. As such, it is important for pilots to rely on anti-icing and de-icing systems for preventing interference with both internal and external flight operations. For your better understanding of the ways in which ice poses a threat to flight safety, this blog will explore the purpose and working principles of anti-icing systems.

As pilots guide their vessels through the air, it is crucial that they have timely, accurate information about various flight conditions such as the speed and altitude of their aircraft. For this information, pilots generally rely on a grouping of pressure-sensing devices called the pitot-static system. These systems consist of a pitot tube and static tube, working in combination to tell the pilot valuable information about the airspeed, altitude, and vertical speed of their aircraft. One of the crucial portions of this system may be the pitot static test adaptors that can be installed onto the probes to enable the air data parameters to be transmitted to the flight-deck instruments. Here, you can read more about how pitot static test adaptors are used along with some major considerations to keep in mind during installation.
