RE: Holes In Airplane Wings To Save Fuel

Very hard to imagine manufacturing of 50-micron holes to be cost-effective whatever fuel saving would be. Even then, they will get clogged with dust very soon - not to mention any paint job. I suspect, surface grooves were proposed, and idea lost in translation and communication. Patterned surface (...

Pressurization With No Fuel?

I guess there are very few situations when both engine are lost at 30 000+ ft (Gimly Glider, Air Transat), but still - what happened to cabin pressurization in these situations? I know, even very uncomfortable landing in one piece is way better than a comfortable crash - yet what was done in these s...

RE: TSA.....no Common Sense...

Is there a security policy everyone on a.net would be happy with? When pilots and FAs are being screened, the argument is that they can bring something dangerous into sterile area, and pass that to a passenger of the other flight (for a small illegal reward). Anyone who is happy with that argument s...

There is no real alternative to burning fuel at this point. Planes need a lot of energy, with wide range of powers being available on demand. Required amount of power per pound of plane is MUCH higher than for any other transportation vehicle (well, possibly expect for helicopter). Some sort of "alt...
