“Aviation World Records for Speed and Time”
Another exciting topic is scheduled for our next EAL Radio Show on February 5, 2018 and Neal has chosen a fun program to present; “Aviation World Records for Speed and Time.” This program will keep our thinking caps sharp, and is geared to all of you flying buffs” out there that love “aerodynamic racing” in both speed and time world records. Aircraft engineers may have used all kinds of materials…aluminum, magnesium etc. long ago looking for the fastest performance and time out of an aircraft. Today, of course, it’s all about the latest products that aeronautical engineers devise i.e., special materials to make steel magnesium alloys or perhaps the use of composite materials of some kind.
Engine equipment today is being constructed for the best technology methods to obtain increasing power out of an aircraft. Consideration is given to install the maximum speed an aircraft will tolerate using jet engines that are being constructed to get a special “boost” or otherwise known as an “afterburner.” Electronics play a large part in the world today with all types of computerized equipment that are progressing rapidly for speed while reducing time dramatically. This focus is specifically in the areas needed to produce World records.
Some questions we ask are:
Are there many types of classes of aircraft, i.e., landplanes, seaplanes, helicopters, and amphibians?
What about the engine power such as, piston-engines, turbojets, turboprops, and rocket-engine aircraft.
What is the highest airspeed and time attained by an aircraft of a particular class?
Who makes the rules for all official aviation records? Are they defined by Federation Aéronautique Internationale (FAI)
