of more than 60% since 1970. There are a number of evolutionary technologies that could help achieve further fuel efficiency improvements in new aircraft over the next 20 years. Aviation engineers have been working on silent aircraft and using 3D systems in aircraft to make precise aircraft design which will be very useful for cargo purposes and for travellers to reach their destinations. Students of Cambridge university are also been working on silent aircraft which will reduce the aircraft noise
course of the thirty years spanning from 1959 to 1979 there were many incidents that led to a need for a system to reduce human factors in major accidents, but in the seventies, there were some significant accidents that highlighted a need for action. A very notable crash was the Eastern Airlines Flight 401 on December 29, 1972. The flight was making their approach in Miami when the landing gear light would not illuminate. All members of the flight crew attempted to troubleshoot the problem with

Abstract Introduction In AIR India jet shop they deals with the V2500 and CFM 56-5B jet engines these engines are widely used in A320 series of Boeing airplanes .In JEOC complete overhauling, maintenance and repairing of these engines take place at various assemblies and sub assemblies. The two terms being used in aerospace industry are Power Plant & Engine. The difference between the two is that the Engine without the accessories is called a Power Plant. Description regarding
public interest in purchasing such a plane, Airbus was already pursuing its own large plane project. Analysts suggested that Boeing instead would pursue stretching their 747 design, and that air travel was already moving away from the hub and spoke system that consolidated traffic into large planes, and toward more non-stop routes that could be served by smaller planes. In June 1994, Airbus began developing its own very large airliner, designated the A3XX. Airbus considered several designs
of 2006 they led the commercial and defense aircraft market as the company with the largest total revenue. (Defense News , 2007). The corporation is divided into five separate business units/services. Commercial Airplanes and Integrated Defense Systems are the two major components. The other three units span control over research and development, services and financial services; Phantom Works, Shared Services Group and Boeing Capital Corp, respectively. As of 2006, these three smaller units contributed
flying into their airport. However, the plane also features advanced flight management systems, and improved navigation modes, to allow the pilots an easier flight and more downtime in the cockpit. In addition to that, the plane also offer low fuel consumption and reduced Co2 and Nox. In addition, the Airbus A380 features advanced wing and lander gear design, which makes it significantly quieter at takeoff, landing, and in flight, making the plane a leader among industry competitors. In particularly
AIR CARRIER PLANNING & OPERATION MANAGEMENT Objective Airlines are no more used by the rich. Now they have become Essential for the modern day of transportation system the objective of this topic is to make the student aware of it operation and also its management. .From outside to a passenger it seems a very simple means of transport but its operation and management it an absolute professional and it requires highly professional approach. This
economic expert Professor Jay Pil Choi (Choi, 2001). 7 The Commission claimed that the merged entity would have incentives to bundle its avionics (e.g. aircraft communication and navigation equipment) and non-avionics products (e.g. wheels, lights and landing gear) with engines, at a discount to single product purchases, which competitors could not match. In the short to medium term, this would marginalize competitors by depriving them of revenues which would mean they could not cover their fixed costs.
