While pilots do an incredible job of keeping passengers safe during a commercial flight, many will be surprised to learn that 90% of the duration features operations carried out by the autopilot system. This system helps to ensure proper navigation, altitude, and sometimes landing in order to optimize each variable. While the autopilot system is somewhat complex, it is a critical element of the aircraft that must not be overlooked for those interested in aviation. In this blog, we will discuss the nuances of the autopilot system, including its design and implementation.

Pistons are essential for the standard operations of many aircraft engines, serving to transfer the power of ignited fuel-and-air mixtures to a crankshaft for the means of driving a propeller assembly. While the piston is the element that transfers energy, the combustion of the fuel-and-air mixture takes place within each cylinder. With a small metallic split ring known as a piston ring, a seal is established between the piston and the wall of the cylinder liner. Alongside acting as a seal, the piston ring has other various duties that benefit the overall functionality of the assembly as a whole. In this blog, we will discuss piston rings briefly, allowing you to better understand their design and use.
