Aviation is an ideal industry to be in if someone likes to be learning new things in all technical fields. Each year airplanes change and are effected by new technology in metallurgy, chemistry, engines, plastics, electronics, welding, etc.
I am always learning as technology progresses forward. I enjoy mentoring others - this refreshes my memory and makes research in new areas enjoyable.
The average commercial jet lands with 3-5 problems that maintenance fixes or defers (MEL) before the next flight. The flight can not continue unless both maintenance and the pilot accept the plane for safe flight.
Most Common Reasons for Plane Accidents: 50% - Pilot Error, 22% - Maintenance Error, 12% - Weather, 9% - Sabotage, 7% - air traffic controllers

The advantage of rear facing seats (and some aviation safety experts have considered it) is the human body can take more g forces during a crash. However, the airlines have resisted the current
There several reasons. 1) to sit comfortably, seats need to be reclined at least 20deg and must be able to be reclined further for sleeping. Two seats back-to-back must allow for this space and it would
Airliners use a prioritized message system. For example, if the airplane is on fire, that is given a higher priority than a low fuel alarm. Also, light aircraft attempt to show ALL the information on
Actually, technology has increased the accident rates. Since "glass" cockpits, accident rates have gone up. Apparently pilots are being overwhelmed with information instead of just receiving the basic
While it would be possible, the same money and effort would just as well be spent perfecting the landing system. Part of the long range goal of the project is to eventually automate landings on earth,
