Aircraft are marvelous machines that have provided people far and wide with a means to explore even the remote areas of the world. Apart from exploration, aircraft are also used for military purposes, in addition to a wide range of other applications. To achieve such ends, aircraft are designed with numerous systems and devices which ensure they are working optimally. Regardless of the type (military, commercial, or private), all aircraft require a vacuum to operate safely. If you are asking yourself how and why aircraft benefit from the use of vacuums, some of the major beneficiaries include assembly, heat treating, brake production, and many others.

With the increasing complexity of aerospace technology, it is a tedious job to ensure all systems and flight components are safe and ready for flight, so preflight preparation requires great attention to detail. As overlooking just one detail could have detrimental effects to the flight, there are a number of steps for the pilot and crew to go through prior to takeoff. While these procedures take place outside and inside the aircraft, this blog will focus on the internal and external aspects of preflight.

When operating with systems and components that house and transport fluids, it is important that reliable seals are implemented to ensure that any leak is prevented. Gaskets are a common option for such needs, coming in the form of rubber components that are seated and compressed between two or more surfaces to deform and create a seal. When transporting or storing a fluid such as gasoline, it is crucial that one takes into account the types of gasket material that is used for the seal, as some materials may begin to break down and fail when interacting with gasoline. As the failure of a gasket can lead to dangers when fuel begins to leak, it is very important that the right material is relied on.

Fasteners are common components to countless industries and applications, allowing for two or more parts to be combined in a permanent or non-permanent fashion. Within the realm of aviation, fasteners are paramount to aircraft construction, so much so that they can account for nearly half of the parts of a single model. There are many types of fasteners that one may take advantage of, each featuring different designs and capabilities that warrant different uses. To help you understand the importance of aircraft fasteners, we will provide a brief overview of the most common types and their use.
