Victims of Global Warming or Culprits?

The world is getting hotter. Earlier this year Shanghai’s highest temperature reached a record high 41 degrees, while in Hongqiao and Pudong Airports, the surface temperature approached 70 degrees. It is like this in the most part of Europe, and rising temperatures will make more trouble for our airlines. A study by Columbia University researchers showed that the temperature rise caused by global warming may make it more difficult for aircraft to take off and land. It is predicted that by 2050, in the highest temperature of the day, 30% of flights globally will not complete take off with maximum weight. Higher temperature will lead to lower air density, and the principle of aircraft take-off

Demand Growing Rapidly for Aircraft Engineers

Aircraft are highly specialized pieces of equipment. The passengers and crew depend entirely on the reliability of all aircraft parts and equipment so the engineer jobs do not only demand training, but also logical thinking and acceptance of responsibility. Job Outlook The increase in the number of jetliners taken delivery by airlines, the profits in the airline industry and the growth of the new generation of aircraft has resulted in a shortage of aircraft maintenance personnel. Situations like this create opportunities and increase wages for engineers and maintenance technicians.
