For many of those traveling by air turbulences are a cause for dismay. To help them understand what happens at such times, an airline pilot from known airline British Airways, along with two other specialists, explained what happens during turmoil and how dangerous they are.
The pilot and author of “Cockpit Confidential” Patrick Smith, the airline British Airways pilot Steve Allright and flight safety specialist from the Association of British Drivers, Steve Landells, commented and explained the problem of flight turbulence. The three experts were discussed including the processes by which they occur and how pilots manage them. According to experts, there are different types of turbulence. These occur when two large masses of air, moving at different rates can be found. In most cases, the turbulence are caused by thunderstorms and wind currents that come from larger aircraft. “The turbulence are uncomfortable, but are often dangerous. Various aspects of various types of weather can cause turbulence. The most common type is’ Clear Air Turbulence “(No – clear air turbulence), which is perfectly normal. Air flows from other aircraft can stretch even thousands of kilometers. Depending on the direction of travel, our flight planners choose to avoid them or to use these currents to reduce fuel consumption, given that it can fly in this way, with 400 kilometers per hour. The turbulence sometimes occurs when air currents meet with slower moving, “explains Steve Allright. Meanwhile, Steve Landells, flight safety specialist, says that turbulence may occur sometimes due to vagaries of the weather. Fortunately, thunderstorms are easy to see, the expert adds.

On the other hand, wake vortices are a different phenomenon, dangerous but rare. These are caused by eddies of air that is created when the airplane is at low altitude and weight maintenance in air is left on the wings. The larger the plane, the more dangerous turbulence. However, very vulnerable and small planes. In such situations, a technique adopted by pilots is the gradual increase in altitude. “Despite all safety measures, I think every pilot was, at one time, in such a situation. Wake turbulence could last only a few seconds, but are memorable, “said pilot Patrick Smith. It may collapse due to turbulence flying airplanes? The fault is afraid of flying or inconvenience caused by the cramped space, most of the passengers do not feel at ease when traveling. During turbulence, the plane seems helpless in the sky, but, except in rare cases, it is not in danger, says pilot Patrick Smith. It is true that among the most common reasons of fear among passengers include turbulence. But they are part of the experience, not a cause for fear. Children, especially, who have irrational fears, not afraid of these reasons, says Allright. When the plane starts to “tremble” because of the turmoil, the pilots on this issue as one uncomfortable, not safety. Utmost care crew in those moments is to calm passengers. In addition, after such events, specialists inspect the operation of the aircraft, to ensure that everything works properly. “Aircraft are constructed so as to be prepared for turbulence, and the damage is very rare,” says Steve Landells.
Pilots assess the severity of the turbulence in flight, so that they can decide what is best for the flight. “Drivers will slow down to a certain” threshold speed in case of turbulence “, to ensure that aircraft and flight are not affected. This rate is close to normal, so that passengers do not notice, most often a difference. Can I change altitude or route. But the fact is that pilots remain very calm in such situations. Often try to avoid areas of turbulence, so it retains the air traffic controllers. The other drivers know when to change the route or altitude aircraft so that passengers are not disturbed or, at worst, wounded, “he said Landells. People who feel less turbulence caused by the lack of comfort seats are those near the wing. “Gone are very close to the center of gravity of the aircraft,” says pilot Patrick Smith. On the other hand, those seated from the tail will be affected by such events Airlines.

European air carriers are rushing to offer Internet access via Wi-Fi on board aircraft, the desire to attract new passengers and create a new source of revenue through entertainment, and advertising services, Reuters.

Passengers traveling with US airlines already benefit from free Wi-Fi on 66% of miles flown, compared to a global average of 24%, according to data supplied by Routehappy. Europe, however, the adoption of Internet services for ground-to-air type is more difficult than in the US because of the number of countries in the region, while services based on satellite Internet proved too expensive for flights short distances. Since the number of satellites in orbit is increasing, leading to lower costs and airlines are increasingly aware of the possibilities of making money, the price is no longer an insurmountable obstacle, analysts say.
