Mitch Mignano Services : Many small aircraft manufacturers, including Cessna, Piper,

Diamond, Mooney, Cirrus Design, Raytheon and others serve the general aviation
market, with a focus on private aviation and flight training.

Each country regulates aviation differently, but general aviation usually falls under
different regulations depending on whether it is private or commercial and on the type of
equipment involved.

Mitch Mignano Bio Aviation is the activity involving man-made air-borne flying devices
(aircraft), including the people, organizations, and regulatory bodies involved with them.
Many cultures have built devices that travel through the air, from the earliest projectiles
such as stones and spears. the boomerang in Australia, the hot air Kongming lantern, and
kites. There are early legends of human flight such as the story of Icarus, and later,
somewhat more credible claims of short-distance human flights appear, such as the
winged flights of Abbas Ibn Firnas (810–887), Eilmer of Malmesbury (11th century), and
the hot-air Passarola of Bartolomeu Lourenço de Gusmão (1685-1724).

Contact Mitch Mignano * On powered aircraft, one or more aircraft engines are
propulsion units that provide thrust to push the aircraft forward through the air. The
engine is optional in the case of gliders that are not motor gliders. The most common
propulsion units are propellers, powered by reciprocating or turbine engines, jet engines
or even rocket motors, which provide thrust directly from the engine and usually also
from a large fan mounted within the engine. When the number of engines is even, they
are distributed symmetrically about the roll axis of the aircraft, which lies along the plane
of symmetry (for symmetrical aircraft); when the number is odd, the odd engine is
usually mounted along the centerline of the fuselage.

Mitch Mignano Info Experimental rocket powered aircraft were developed by the
Germans as early as World War II (see Me 163 Komet), and about 29 were manufactured
and deployed. The first fixed wing aircraft to break the sound barrier in level flight was a
rocket plane – the Bell X-1. The later North American X-15 was another important rocket
plane that broke many speed and altitude records and laid much of the groundwork for
later aircraft and spacecraft design. Rocket aircraft are not in common usage today,
although rocket-assisted takeoffs are used for some military aircraft. SpaceShipOne is the
most famous current rocket aircraft, being the testbed for developing a commercial sub-
orbital passenger service; another rocket plane is the XCOR EZ-Rocket; and there is the
Space Shuttle.

Aquila AT01

Smaller and older propeller aircraft make use of reciprocating internal combustion
engines that turns a propeller to create thrust. They are quieter than jet aircraft, but they
fly at lower speeds, and have lower load capacity compared to similar sized jet powered
aircraft. However, they are significantly cheaper and much more economical than jets,
and are generally the best option for people who need to transport a few passengers
and/or small amounts of cargo. They are also the aircraft of choice for pilots who wish to
own an aircraft.
