The jet engine is one of the most important breakthroughs in aviation history, as it revolutionized the way people fly. From Boeing to Airbus, no matter where you travel, the aircraft you are in is most likely to be powered by this technology. However, this technology wasn’t used commercially until the middle of the last century. The modern jet engine was invented by Frank Whittle in 1930. The engine’s capability to rapidly deliver products, transfer passengers and deploy artillery has changed how the world is run.

An uncertain future for cruise and aviation

Article | April 9, 2020

As we begin to hit what would be the peak season toward the middle of spring and start of summer, instead of reading stories of holiday go-ers preparing for their next big escape, we’re instead reading stories of two huge industries that may suffer huge losses following the coronavirus pandemic. As it currently stands, all major cruise lines have had major disruptions to their services as they’re forced to lay off thousands of workers indefinitely whilst ports to many countries remain closed for the foreseeable future - the first big disruption to the industry since 9/11. And whilst the extended period of time in which services aren’t running for, the issues that the cruise liners may suffer from most could be a damaged reputation following the spread of infections amongst a number of ships. With many different people from many different countries all coming together in one confined space, it allowed the virus to spread very quickly in some instances, such as the Diamond Princess, reporting over 700 confirmed cases .

When it comes to the climate, the aviation industry is heavily focused on investing in new technologies to keep passengers in the air. From biofuels to new aircraft designs, the focus is on bringing a green evolution to aviation. However, what if the answer to combatting climate change already existed?

What Aircraft Are Best Suited For Arctic Flight?

Article | April 13, 2020

When operating aircraft above the Arctic Circle (66.5° N latitude) there are certain hazards to be aware of. We decided to take a look at what aircraft are best suited for Arctic flight.A huge problem with flying in the Arctic is not just icing, but the visual restrictions that are placed on pilots. During the spring and fall, whiteout or flat light can distort what a pilot sees. The horizon can suddenly disappear making objects appear as if they are floating in the air. This can make things like mountain ranges extremely difficult to judge.
