Recently there was an intentional GPS outage in the California / west coast of the US. http://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/17987/usaf-is-jamming-gps-in-the-western-u-s-for-largest-ever-red-flag-air-war-exercise In the case of a global outage - say some kind of war broke out - and GPS was shut off u...Jump to post
near Morristown NJ (MMU) are two IFR fixes: http://18.104.22.168/d-tpp/1713/00931IL23.PDF
BADDA and BINGG
are other fixes like this or is this an outlier?

is this a concrete step up in an arms/space race or just noise?
Greetings, I've used the search function but was not sucessful in my search. in GA planes with ICE's the thrust (is that the same as force?) is transmitted through the crankshaft to the crank case to the airframe I think). Is the transmission of forces similar in jet engines? does the shaft of a lar...Jump to post

My aunt and uncle were supposed to be on that flight but she got into an argument with a person at the hotel they were staying at and got to the airport too late to get on.
The whole event sent her to therapy for quite a while. KLM gave them a gratis RT ticket........
GTFs seem to be a patch – trying to bridge the different strengths and requirements of the bypass / fan/prop component and the turbine part of the engine. Given the high efficiency of electric motors perhaps it would be possible to drive the fans, in whatever location makes most sense, electrically,...Jump to post
First post after a long time lurking. Modern high bypass jet engines are almost shrouded prop planes where the "prop" is driven by a turbine rather than a reciprocating engine. A modern bypass engine has say a 8 or 10:1 ratio. Not too much Jet there, more fan / prop. Would it make sense to separate ...Jump to post
