9) What is Aqua-planing?

It is a condition where a standing water, snow or slush makes a layer on the ground which causes the moving wheel of an aircraft to lose contact with the aircraft, due to which braking action on the wheel fails or becomes less operative, reducing the friction between the wheels and the ground.

10) Why Pilot hits ground hard during bad weather?

During bad weather Pilot hits the ground hard intentionally while landing, it is not because they lacks skill for landing but to avoid the accident due the slippery surface which is formed when there is an excess layer of water accumulated during rain, so to puncture that surface they hit the surface hard.

11) Explain what is Clear Ice?

Clear Ice refers to a solid precipitation which forms on the air-craft when air temperature is between 0 degree C and -3 degree C and it can make the formation of water ice on the surface of the aircraft. With clear ice or Icing the aircraft will be at risk of stalling.

12) Explain what do you mean by stalling of aircraft?

When the wing can’t generate or produce enough lift to support weight of the airplane the airplane stalls. The angle at which it happens is called the critical angle of attack. Stalling of aircraft can occur at any speed.

  • Keep your seat belt fastened
  • Consider purchasing a separate seat for infant or child while travelling
  • Stretch your arms and muscles on long flights

15) What creates the strange sounds you hear prior to take off and landing?

The drilling sound you hear during landing and take-off is the sound of the flaps and slats being extended on the wings. These panels are driven by a screw mechanism that causes the sounds; it increases the area and curvature of the wing when extended to facilitate low-speed flying.

16) Is it possible to open flight door at high altitude?

Airplanes are pressurized to the equivalent of 8000 feet for passenger comfort and to facilitate breathing. At higher altitude, around 30,000 feet the air pressure inside the plane is much higher than the pressure outside and this pressure differential will not allow the door to open.

17) What are the measures taken to save the aircraft from lightning?

“Static Wick” is the key component used in an aircraft to save the plane from lighting, this device disperses the static build up in the air, which reduces the intensity of a lightning strike and deviates the path of lightning through the rod instead of spreading throughout the air-plane.
