Low cost airlines are now common place in our society and since there launch, traveling to foreign countries is now possible for the masses.

Easy Jet are considered to be the founders of low cost air travel, starting there operations from London Luton Airport. Over the years, Easy Jet has grown and now flies to many European countries. As Easy Jet grew, more and more airlines jumped on the bandwagon. Ryan Air, BMI Baby and FlyBe to name a few.

Not so long ago, I had cause to travel from the UK to France on a regular basis. As there were low cost airlines operating from my local airport, East Midlands, I decided to sample a flight and flew with BMI Baby. At that time, BMI Baby, the low cost arm of BMI (British Midland International), were flying to Paris CDG. It was a really convenient service and took about 1 hour. The flight I would regularly take, left the UK at 16:00 and would arrive in Paris at 18:00 local time. I can't quite remember how many journeys I made with BMI Baby, but I would hazard a guess at about 12 - 15 times.

When BMI Baby launched there low cost operation from East Midlands, the fares were offered at ridiculous prices. Ridiculous to the point that they were offering seats for nothing! Unfortunately there is the issue of tax, so the flight was not actually free. Never the less, a return flight from the UK to France usually cost somewhere in the region of about

Flight History Of Aeroplanes And Steps Of Flying

(category: Aviation, Word count: 406)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

The invention of flight by the Wright brothers has brought about a revolution in the world. The concept of speed and distance started changing. The impossible started looking possible. The perfect combination of strength, weight, and carrying capacity has been experimented and finally achieved.

The airplanes were previously called "Kites"! They did not have much power and were supplied with a lot of wing area. The streamlined aircrafts came up just before the World War I. they has cleaner aerodynamic shapes and had increased horsepower. During the First World War, the traditional wooden frames were replaced by welded steel tubing. Duraluminum was used to prepare all the assembly-wings, fuselage and tail of the flight.

Slowly metal was used to replace the use of wood in preparing the body of the flight. The revolutionary Boeing 247 combined the streamlined all-metal semi-monocoque construction, retractable landing and variable pitch propellers. Whenever there is a war, the nation tries to utilize the best technology. During World War 2, the jet fighter was developed. An all-composite design was appreciated during 1980s. The flight design by Brut Rutan made history by flying non-stop around the world without refueling.

The Voyager's composite airframe was lightweight and circled the earth in nine days. Not only for transporting people from place to place, certain space shuttle is prepared for space flight. The various mechanical flights include aircraft, aeroplanes, helicopters, airships, balloons and spacecraft. Flying an aeroplane is no easy task. It involves various methods like taxiing; take off, climb, cruise, descent, flight planning, and landing. Some of the early flight pioneers were Abbas Ibn Firnas, Amelia Earhart, Alberto Santos Dumont, Armen Firman, Charles Lindbergh, Richard Pearse and ultimately the Wright Brothers.

A taxiway is used for flights to move from one place to another with the help of wheels, within the airport. The process when the flight, after gathering speed from the runway, leaves the ground and flies into the air is called takeoff. For light flights, usually full power is used. Climb involves getting the flight into the desired cruising altitude. Cruise involved changing the direction of the flight. The landing of the flight by decreasing its altitude is known as descent of a flight. Flight planning is an essential part in both private and commercial flights. Landing the flight to ground level is the ultimate part of safely handling a flight.

What Is The Safest Seat In An Airplane

(category: Aviation, Word count: 348)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

A question often asked by anxious airplane passengers is this: What is the safest seat in an airplane? The answer: none. Because accidents can erupt at any spot within the aircraft.

Some people are of the opinion that the nearer one is seated to an emergency exit, the safer one is. Sadly, that is not absolutely true. A fire can start near the emergency exit as in any place within the plane. And if the emergency exit is jammed, then the person sitting nearest it is in as much of the same fix as the one sitting farthest from it.

Regardless of where the passenger is seated inside the aircraft, the risks to one's safety is greatly minimized by one thing above all else: by being alert and aware of one's surroundings.

Being alert means being watchful and attentive. Note the location of all exits. Listen to all pre-flight and in-flight instructions. Do not drink too much. Use common sense and try not to do anything that will be detrimental to your own safety, as well as to that of others, such as having too many or too heavy carry-on luggage, spilling hot drinks, being careless with pointed objects or things with sharp edges, and the like. Again, use common sense.

Airplane accidents are rare, despite the fears and misgivings surrounding air travel. But if one does occur during the flight, it is very important for the passenger to stay calm and not to panic. Fear is a highly contagious disease. Many casualties in accidents, even those that happened on land, could have been prevented had the panic been contained. Thus, in case of an accident, take a deep breath, keep the tone of voice down and follow the line.

There is no such thing as the safest seat in the plane. But any passenger can always make his or hers the safest seat if he or she chooses to, wherever he or she is seated. Creating the sense of safety within one's self, after all, is a mind game.

Tips On Alaska Floatplane Flying

(category: Aviation, Word count: 677)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

A life of adventure - doing what you love and getting paid for it - does this sound interesting to you? Maybe if you're thinking about a career change you should think about heading to Alaska to be a float plane pilot or a bush pilot.

At the very least it's an excellent summer vacation idea if you can't manage the career change right now. These pilots live lives that most of us will only dream of. Think of it this way if you have to justify the change to your significant other: when it's really hot and humid where you live during the summer you are pretty much guaranteed relief from the heat in the form of lower temperatures if you're in Alaska! That should definitely get you to at least the "I'll think about it" stage with them (if you're lucky).

Fast forward to what your life would be like in the winter. Imagine the adrenaline rush of flying over a glacier and then landing on an icy lake with skis on your plane. No brakes here...all you've got is your wits and some luck!

Are you looking for some more "subtle" adventure? You could fly charter flights the rest of the year into the wilderness and drop people off for a day of fishing, hiking, nature-watching or the like and then head back at the end of the day to pick them up and take them back to civilization. Talk about the ideal job for a pilot!

There are thousands of lakes in Alaska that you can land on, or if you prefer you can put your tundra tires to work and find a flat spot to land in the wilderness. Bust out "The Claw" and leave your plane to go do some exploring of your own! The cool thing about this particular tiedown is that it's not only super-portable but the more your plane pulls on it the deeper it pulls into the ground, keeping it safe from those renegade tornadoes that keep threatening to swoop your little investment away!

There is some sort of fancy mathematical equation for how "The Claw" works, and if you want to work it out you can go right ahead. For the rest of us, trust me, this contraption is very cool. It's easy to take with you because it breaks down and even has its own storage bag.

However, there are always two sides to every in Alaska means that you probably aren't going to see most of your family as often as you'd like (or if it's the in-laws that might not be such a bad thing, right?) and every day in your plane isn't necessarily going to be idyllic.

If you have a job flying you are going to have to be out in all sorts of weather; much of it as far from ideal conditions as you can imagine. You'll have to have a lot of training and experience as well as the guts to keep going when you know that you really shouldn't. Not to mention that when you turn a hobby into a job you run the risk of losing the excitement and reward that you get out of it.

If you still are interested at this point and I haven't dissuaded you then probably you are going to make a go of it "by hook or by crook." Good for you!

Things that you will need for your trip:

1. Plane

2. Maps

3. Tiedown

4. Willing victim to tag along

5. Warm clothes

6. Camera

7. Floats (weather-permitting)

8. Skis (weather-permitting)

9. A guide who knows where the best places are to check out

Overall, the idea of spending time in Alaska with your family, (or just alone with your plane if you're that type of person) can be a reality for most anybody. All it takes is some research, a little bit of planning, and before you know it you're off on an adventure that will be well worth writing home about!
