Will a Digital Marketplace Modernise the Aerospace Industry?

An average aircraft contains approximately 3 million different parts, which are in turn produced by thousands of different manufacturers across the globe. As a result, the procurement of spare parts exists as an extremely complex daily process. This complexity gave rise to a question: is there a way to simplify the process and increase its

What goes up must come down

Bringing at aircraft down to the runway is only part of the challenge. It is not over until the aircraft parked at gate. In order to do this, there are a number of systems for slowing the aircraft down. Stopping a 200-tonne aircraft landing requires a lot of braking force. To do this, there is

An aircraft contains approximately 3 million different parts, and there are thousands different manufacturers that produce the spare parts. Therefore, the global supply chain for the aerospace industry is an extremely complex one. So how do you take something complex and make it simple? You build a platform to make it easy for their customers

Aerodynamics: Aircraft Flaps

“A flap is a high-lift device used to reduce the stalling speed of an aircraft wing at a given weight. Flaps are usually mounted on the wing trailing edges of a fixed-wing aircraft. Flaps are used to reduce the take-off distance and the landing distance. Flaps also cause an increase in drag so they are

Recycling an airplane – salvaging aircraft parts

What’s scrapped when an aircraft retires? Deciding when and how to retire an aircraft is a complicated job, even in normal times, but with Covid-19, the world’s fleet has been largely grounded. Many aircrafts that might have flown for five, 10 or even more years are being sent to have their valuable parts and systems
