Waking up to sad news this morning, what everyone hoped it wouldn't come too, Thomas Cook has gone into administration. I'll be thinking about all the crew, staff and everyone who is still abroad today and of course people going on holiday in the future 😞 ✈️ ✈️ ✈️ ✈️ #avgeek #miniavgeek #planespotting #familyhobby #beginners #travel #aviation4u #megashot #megaplane #megaaviation #aviationlovers #aviation_lovers #ig_aviation_club #instaaviation #instagramaviation #crewlife #crew #pilot #pilotlife #flying #aviation #avnews #thomascook

✈️ ✈️𝐊𝐫𝐮𝐞𝐠𝐞𝐫 𝐅𝐥𝐚𝐩✈️ ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ 🛩️Krueger flaps are lift enhancement devices that are fitted to the leading edge of an aircraft wing 🛩️Unlike slats or drooped leading edges, the main wing upper surface and its nose is not changed. Instead, a portion of the lower wing is rotated out in front of the main wing leading edge 🛩️Current Boeing aircraft, and many others, use this design between the fuselage and closest engine, where the wing is thickest. Outboard of the engine, slat flaps are used on the leading edge. The Boeing 727 also used a mix of inboard Krueger flaps and outboard slats, although it had no engine between them 🛩️Most early jet airliners, such as the Boeing 707 and Boeing 747, used Krueger flaps only 🛩️The aerodynamic effect of Krueger flaps may be similar to that of slats or slots (in those cases where there is a gap or slot between the flap trailing edge and wing leading edge), they are deployed differently. 🛩️Krueger flaps, hinged at their foremost position that once deployed actually become their trailing edges, hinge forwards from the under surface of the wing, increasing the wing camber and maximum coefficient of Lift. It produces a nose-up pitching moment. Conversely, slats extend forwards from the upper surface of the leading edge. 🛩️Additionally when deployed, Krueger flaps result in a much more pronounced blunt leading edge on the wing, helping to achieve better low-speed handling. This allows smaller-radius wing leading edges, better optimized for cruise 🛩️The Krueger flaps developed for the Boeing 747 were constructed from fiberglass honeycomb material and were designed to be intentionally distorted into an aerofoil section on deployment ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ 🛫Visit Link mentioned in bio for detailed facts and knowledge🛫 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #aircraft_fact #aviation_stream #aerodynamics #aircraft #aeronauticalengineering #mechanicalengineering #sky #jet #aircraftengineer #aviation #airbus #boeing #instagram #aircraftmentaintence #fighter #engineering #pilot #pilotstuff #instagram #knowledge #studentlife #airbuslovers #boeinglovers #piloteyes #pilotlife #inspiration #avporn #dailypost #planes #instalike

Pernah nggak sih kepikir, "terbang malam bahaya nggak ya?" Welcome on board future pilots! Kan banyak yang berkata bahwa berkendara di malam hari lebih berbahaya ya? Untungnya hal itu tidak dapat diaplikasikan dalam penerbangan kok. Penerbangan di malam hari sama aman nya dengan penerbangan di waktu lainnya, seorang pilot juga telah dipersiapkan untuk menghadapi segala situasi, termasuk menghadapi kegelapan di malam hari. Mau tahu hal hal apa yang dipersiapkan? Ikuti kelas AVOC kita yang akan diselenggarakan tanggal 4 & 15 oktober 2019! Jadi cepat reservasi dan jangan sampai ketinggalan ya future pilots!

Sling Training Lesson 2 involved being loaded up with more logs, to bring home the criticality of using “Power[check]” in the “Fixpoint-Load-Destination” check loop. . Working on the edge of Max Power further demonstrated the criticality of a smooth, constant decelerative approach (something that @specialist_helicopters has kept me on my toes with since day one). . But while I can get within the vicinity of the destination smoothly, I find myself failing to anticipate (and proactively manage) the further effects of controls in the small adjustments required to get the destination direct under the fix-point …which triggers the pendulum effect and ends up requiring me to hold the fix-point over the destination for much longer (while the load stabilises) before I can release the load (because I haven’t yet mastered the other techniques to stop load swing). #inefficient . Sling training has really opened my eyes to a whole new level of precision which is already benefitting my general flying. 🙏🏼😍🚁 . #livetolearn #learntolive #helicopter #pilot #girl #aerialwork #awk #doorsoff #slingendorsement #training #helicopterpilot #chicksfly #femalepilot #pilotlife #avgeek #ipullpitch #happydays #learningaddict #specialisthelicopters #whenonlythebestwilldo #davidwillkillmeforwritingthathashtag #truethough

Destination: Salt Lake City (SLC). Easy short hikes in the foothills minutes from downtown offer stunning views like this one I caught while a thunderstorm was rolling in from the west desert at sunset, which created the striking contrast for this photo taken on the Living Room trail. Have you ever been to SLC? What did you like most about your visit? ✈ sixmilesup.com 📷: @six.miles.up | MB

Had a great dinner with friends tonight at their family's old farmstead. I never think about it when I am there but afterward I always remember the story of Lindbergh eating here with their grandparents. Today, few people know the hill above Lee Bottom is where the Air Force almost put the academy that ended up in Colorado Springs. They were going to buy this farm and Lindy was on the board for chosing the location. On his way here to discuss it there were protestors in Saluda and at dinner he told them they would not put the academy where it was not wanted. #avgeek #eaa #sunset #eveninglight #airforce #taildragger #pilotlife #aviationdaily #igaviation #fly #aviate #aviation #airforceacademy #taildragger #tailwheel #airtoair #aviationphotography #photographer #travel #explore #flight #aviation #flying #pilotlife #aviationlovers #instaaviation #whyifly #lindbergh #igers #igtravel #igdaily
