Aircraft Engine Accessories

Engines are made up of many accessories that highly contribute to the safety of the engine, and therefore the safety of the plane and its’ passengers. When an aircraft has an issue, it is not automatically the entire engine that needs replacing, but most likely one of its’ accessories. When the accessory is the only issue, that is good news, it is obviously a lot cheaper than replacing a whole engine.


The starter is exactly as it sounds, its assists to start the engine. Alternators are considered one of the highest failing items in an aircraft since they were originally manufactured for automobiles. Its purpose is to convert mechanical energy to electrical energy. Oil huge when it comes to a smooth-running engine. It circulated within the hot engine keeping everything lubricated, which in turn heats up the oil rapidly. That is where the oil coolers come into play, these coolers prevent the engine from over-heating. Ignition systems are what burn the fuel, and most aircrafts are built with two ignition systems, along with two spark plugs.


The spark plugs ignite the fuel prior to it entering the ignition system. There are two of both the spark plugs and ignition systems in case one fails, the other one can do all the work needed for a safe landing. Fuel systems, also called fuel tanks, are where the fuel enters and is stored prior to being sent to the engine by the fuel pump. Hoses allow for connection of different components and liquids, and provide a safer engine all together.


The last accessory that pulls the aircraft engine together is the exhaust systems, this is where all the fuel and engine exhaust is released to prevent overheating or damage to the engine. These accessories can be hard to keep track of, and hard to find. Which is where a reputable aircraft engine parts supplier can be a huge commodity.

flexible material that generates electricity when stressed

Empa, a materials science research facility located in the UK just announced that they have developed a flexible material that generates electricity when it is stressed. This type of technology is ground breaking and it can be used to advance society in unimaginable ways. The material is thin, organic and extremely flexible, which makes it different from any other type of power plant or sensor.


The film generates electricity when it is stretched or compressed, making it extremely useful to use on virtually anything. The film could be used for clothing’s, remotes, control buttons, robots, or even inside the human body. Piezoelectricity, electricity resulting from pressure and latent heat is what was used to make this product work. The internal polarization changes when it is stressed, creating the electric impulses.


The Piezoelectric effect, for a long time, was only known to work for crystals. After thousands of hours of research, the Empa team made it possible for elastomers to have piezoelectric properties. The product is extremely difficult to create. The material contains polar nanoparticles and a silicone prototype. These pieces must be molded together to start conveying electrical impulses, and even once they are connected they nonparticals are still randomly oriented, which is why the part needs to become polarized. To polarize the part, Empa must create and electric field.


The electric field is created by heating the glass transition of temperature to a rubbery state and then cooling it to room temperature. This invention creates unlimited opportunities in the world of flexible electrodes. These tiny films could be used to measure human energy just by wearing a t-shirt, they could restart a pacemaker, they could even make the skin of an interactive robot.

NVIDIA Quadro P6000

Laptops are designed for transportation and live a mobile life. When trying to upgrade or enhance a feature much like many people do with PCs, it is often more difficult with laptops as parts come small to be able to fit into place into the laptop itself. Although the swapping of parts has been mastered by many ending results don’t always go as planned and up slowing down the entire laptop unit. To avoid the removal of access parts and tampering with the original stock products, NVIDIA has engineered a new outer graphic card that comes equipped with their popular TITAN X and Quadro products. This will be the first time that NVIDIA will be entering the graphic card market with their eGPU product.


NVIDIA will be partnering with other computing companies to be able to create the eGPU product such as Bizon, One Stop Systems/Magma and Sonnet. The product they that they have come forth with is the NVIDIA Quadro P6000- 24GB graphics potential and retail price goes for $5K US.


Another premium product that goes hand in hand with the TITAN Xp is NDIVIAs all new performance driver . This newest driver has been built to increase computer compatibly and enhance products much like Adobes Premium Pro and Maya.


A lot of additions and optimizing features leave Macs out of the loop when it comes to customizing. Personalizing older Mac laptops have come with more precautions then non-Mac laptops but have made the customization obsolete with the newer version of the Mac laptops. The newer version laptops have come with more parts that are held down with strong secure adhesives.


NDIVIA has been able to come up with a solution for the mac users with the creation of the Sonnet external GPU chassis with Thunderbolt 3. The Sonnet is apart of the Apples External Graphics Development Kit with a retail price of $599. This allows for Mac uses to be able to optimize their computer without having to take their laptops apart.

Trifan Effort
George Bye, creator of the Sun Flyer electric trainer prototype, has teamed up with XTI Aircraft Company to accelerate development of a vertical takeoff and landing design with intention to seat six and cruise at business jet speed.

XTI Aircraft announced the partnership March 6, adding that the joining of Bye and his design team to the effort will expedite development and allow the first prototype to be built at full scale, rather than the 65 percent scale previously planned. The TriFan 600 also will now have a hybrid-electric propulsion system.


XTI is recruiting investors through conventional venture capital channels as well as online crowdfunding. They are developing the TriFan 600 to be able to take off and land vertically, then transition to more airplane-like flight as the ducted fans rotate, giving it an expected range of 1,200 miles. XTI expects the TriFan 600 to be able to climb to 35,000 feet in ten minutes. Bye’s own Sun Flyer, a two-seat, solar-electric trainer, aims to be the first American-made, practical, and all-electric trainer to reach the market. A maiden flight has not been announced, but ground testing began in 2016. XTI CEO Robert LaBelle stated in a press release, “We’re replacing the transmission, gears, two large heavier engines and other components with electric motors, batteries, generators, and a single smaller turboshaft engine.”

George Bye, founder, chairman, and CEO of Bye Aerospace, explained in the XTI news release. “Advanced electric power for aircraft makes the hybrid-electric configuration compelling for the TriFan. We can now bring together into one extraordinary airplane, battery power, electric motors, and a light efficient engine in a vertical takeoff and landing platform. The TriFan will achieve unprecedented performance and operating economy while being safer, lighter, quieter and cleaner. We’re very excited to team with XTI on this game-changing VTOL project.”
