After the Crash: Surviving an Aircraft Accident

AOPA

Of the millions of GA flights every year, only a few end with unplanned off-airport landings. But even though the odds of a crash are slim, the potential consequences are harsh—which is why smart pilots prepare and take basic precautions. From route planning and emergency rations to signal mirrors and sat phones, AOPA Air Safety Institute Manager of Aviation Safety Programs, John Collins, takes a user-friendly, common sense approach at maximizing your chances of survival and rescue after a crash.

John Vassberg | Boomerang Flight Dynamics

Michigan Engineering

The new aerodynamic model is coupled with a gyroscope model for rudimentary analyses. Some significant findings are made regarding the radius of a boomerang’s circular flight path, the required inclination angle of its axis-of-rotation, its trim state, as well as its dynamic stability. These discoveries provide a basic understanding of how the interplay between aero-dynamic forces and moments, and gyroscopic precession combine to return the boomerang to its rightful owner by way of a circular flight path.

Aerial Roof Inspections with Drones

DroneDeploy

The roofing, insurance, and solar industries are undergoing a fundamental change in the way they operate. No longer do you have to spend valuable time manually inspecting roofs to process insurance claims, detect damage, or plan and design solar array installation. The latest technology allows inspectors to save time, increase productivity, and improve worker safety by leveraging drones for roof inspection and measurement.
