From 2012 to 2021, I worked w/remarkable #campaigners 2secure an #European @Standards4EU 2deliver cleaner & less toxic air 4 #Aircrew & #Passengers

In that period, we suffered derision, insult & indifference, but still we battled

No one will ever know or u/stand what we endured, but we strove to build bridges

But, as with all things standards-making, as we discovered via @Standards4EU, the path was never straight

However, we created the most dynamic draft #Standard seen to date

⛴️ Avez-vous entendu parler de grand carénage ?
Ce n’est n’y une religion, ni un credo politique, ni une ligne de budget qu’on pourrait réattribuer pour faire autre chose, mais alors qu’est donc ?🧶

#thread #sécurité #grandcarenage #aviation #nucleaire
Les #bateaux trop immobiles hébergent vite sur leur coque immergée un #écosystème mêlant #algues et #coquillages dont la masse n’a d’égale que le temps resté au port. Cette coque rendue rugueuse n’est pas l’idéal pour se mouvoir dans l’eau, le poids ajouté non-plus

Aussi périodiquement, on sort le bateau de l’eau et on nettoie la carène (surface extérieure de la coque). C’est ca le #carénage.

Living in dreamworld: why international aviation emissions have no chance of being addressed at UN @icao level

@eaTransport @EURACTIV @CarbonMrktWatch…
For decades, the #aviation industry has long resisted all but ineffective international regulation on emissions.

The UN body @icao has only agreed to regulations that promote growth📈and has done nothing to reduce emissions.
International aviation will be regulated by a cheap #offsetting scheme. Why is that bad?
❌The offset price is less that €1/tonne of CO2
❌Passengers will pay €2 on a flight to NY to offset emissions
❌These sums won't incentivise the uptake of clean fuels or technology

I often post pics of the @Airbus #A350 flightdeck and get lots of questions about what is where and what does that do…so a little thread to help explain the screens and options that #WePilots have with them using my limited knowledge. First… the middle #aviation #airbus #Pilot
The two centre screens are electronically split into four. The upper two give information such as systems on left and anomalies on right. Lower are used to give the aircraft information from the pilots, such as route, weather, speeds, performance details, etc. #aviation
The displays in front of either pilot are configurable as the pilot wishes. The inboard display is seen here with camera and airfield navigation system displayed but it can also be primary flight instruments and navigation. The outboard is our Electronic Flight Bag. #aviation

#USAF #avgeek #aviation #avgeeks - The SR-71 is the world's fastest jet airplane and air-breathing airplane. I only recently realized THIS SPECIFIC SR-71 at Warner Robins Museum of Aviation @MOAatRAFB IS THE WORLD'S FASTEST JET AIRPLANE* EVER!!! 1/
@MOAatRAFB 2/ In 1965, SR-71 Blackbird, S/N 61-7958, was the #USAF's 1st production model SR-71. On July 27, 1976, for the Bicentennial, Capt. Pat Blesdoe and Maj. John Fuller rocketed her at 2,092 mph in a 1,000-km closed-course loop... @Sylvia70485099 @kadonkey
3/ ... breaking the #USSR's MiG-25 Foxbat interceptor's astonishing 1,852 mph world-speed record set by Mikhail M. Komarov on October 5, 1967. Note: this was 10 years and 1 day after Sputnik 1 first flew into space on October 4, 1957!!! #ColdWar

- The history of the Ferrari logo 🧵-

The story of the Ferrari prancing horse logo is tied to military history and especially the history of military aviation (1/7) #svagaiature #Ferrari #History #Historia #WWI #WW1 #Aviation #AeronauticaMilitare
The prancing horse was in-fact the insignia of the Italian WWI aviation ace Francesco Baracca, one of the greatest pilots of Italian history, who was shot down during a mission in 1918 (2/7)
That insignia was a symbol of speed and audacity, a black horse on a white back, renown in all of Italy. Baracca became a legend especially in his home region, Emilia Romagna, the same of Enzo Ferrari (3/7)

#AviationAffaires [THREAD]- Les vrais chiffres de son impact environnemental.
L'#aviation dans son ensemble = 2% des émissions mondiales de CO2. L’aviation d'affaires, quant à elle, représente 10% du trafic & 2% de ces émissions, soit 0,04% des émissions de CO2 au niveau mondial.
#AviationAffaires En France, elle représente 2,6% du trafic mondial = 0.001% des émissions mondiales de CO2. Les grands avions d’affaires (Falcon…) en France = 0.00025% des émissions mondiales de CO2. Au niveau européen, l'aviation d'affaires représente 0,006% de ces émissions.
#AviationAffaires – Ses fleurons en France sont @Dassault_OnAir, @DAHER_official et nombre de constructeurs d’aviation générale. L’aviation d’affaires est un outil de travail au service des entreprises, qui en sont les principaux utilisateurs.

Deeply concerning incident at Africa’s largest airline — Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 #ET343 was still at cruising altitude of 37,000ft by the time it reached destination Addis Ababa

Why hadn’t it started to descend for landing? Both pilots were asleep.…
Air traffic controllers tried to contact the pilots numerous times without success

After overflying the runway (still at cruising altitude), the autopilot disconnected - and this chime alert woke the pilots up — who then initiated a descent and eventually made a safe landing.
Pilot fatigue is nothing new, and continues to pose one of the most significant threats to air safety - internationally.

Just last week, pilots publicly criticised UK leisure airline Jet2 for “refusing to recognise concerns about pilot fatigue”…

(Mini thread coeur tout mou 😞) Aujourd’hui vol quelque part en France. A l’arrivée pendant le débarquement je prends un p’tit garçon au poste pour qu’il vienne faire des photos du cockpit et la fameuse photo assis sur mon siège. 👨🏻‍✈️✈️
Le gamin est heureux comme tout, pose plein de questions et prend des tonnes de photos.
Il a meme pas 10 ans et je sens qu’il est totalement fana d’avions.
Mais ce jeune homme est accompagné d’une dame, plutôt âgée, très élégante mais discrète
Elle le regarde avec beaucoup d’amour, je sens même une pointe d’émotion.
Je lui demande si elle veut faire une photo avec lui, elle accepte.
Le p’tit mec fini par quitter le poste en me remerciant, la banane jusqu’aux oreilles.

1️⃣ Deciding between multiple alternative #aviation fuels is a complex and daunting task, as all options have unique advantages and weaknesses. #RECCE, our new tool, aims to streamline this decision-making process:
2️⃣ The Resource to Climate Comparison Evaluator (RECCE) allows users to systematically compare 15 aviation fuels across the entire system, from the resources required to produce each fuel to #emissions resulting from infrastructure, manufacturing, on ground operations and flight.
3️⃣ The Resources section displays the cost, #electricity and feedstock required by 2035 to produce enough of each #fuel to fly everyone in the world 1,300km - the average distance flown by each person on Earth in 2019.

What does this symbol mean?

#aviation #pilot #COVID19 #VaccineSideEffects
A Black Triangle symbol is assigned to any drug or vaccine if it meets any of the criteria which is:

a new active substance or a biosimilar medicine
a new combination of medicines or active substances
a new route of administration
a new drug-delivery system
an established medicine which is to be used in a new patient population.

Dear @CASABriefing @atsbgovau
Please define "safe" and "effective" as Dr. Manderson uses terms here.
Is a "black triangle" med under intense monitoring by EMA & UK actually "safe"? Are black triangle medicines compatible with flight safety?
#aviation #pilot #COVID19
Interesting things to say to someone whose two children both suffered myocarditis after taking a "safe" and "effective" medicine that doesn't provide immunity or stop transmission and carries severe adverse event and fatality risk.
Black Triangle - intensive monitoring (variety of reasons):…

#AAI bids for the new airports were rejected with no reason so that Modi’s #Adani takes away all new airports

Note: Adani has no prior #aviation experience

#SBI was pushed to give $ 1 Bullion debt to Modi’s #Adani to purchase #CoalMines in Australia.

Why did @ALPACanada and @AirCanadaPilots stonewall this report, "The Case Against Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccinations for Flight Crews" from the @CCCAlliance despite being sent it directly by @freetoflycanada over 7 months ago?…
#aviation #GAAC #cdnpoli #onpoli
The content and conclusions of the report are true, proven then and increasingly now by medical and scientific research.
"The adverse events databases from around the world are reporting unprecedented numbers of adverse events from these vaccines including clotting and bleeding disorders, and death. Flight crews are already prone to more clotting events than the general population."

@usfreedomflyers John Pierce Law for US Freedom Flyers (USFF) files lawsuit against Atlas Air over Covid mandates
"18 Major Airlines, FAA, and DOT to Be Sued Over COVID Vaccine Mandates"…
#GAAC #Aviation #COVID19 #usfreedomflyers
"Perhaps most significantly, it is in contravention of long-standing FAA guidance for pilots to take medications that have not been approved by the FDA and then in use for twelve months."…
"Use of, or administration of a drug that does not meet these standards – such as the COVID-19 “vaccines” at issue in this case – is a blatant violation of long-standing FAA procedure. Atlas has encouraged, coerced and even paid pilots to violate this FAA guidance and procedure."

>american Switchblade 300 #UAV
quality small drone, up for some clever use. #aviation

2.5 kg all up weight is excellent, and the 63/100 mph cruise/dash is much better than typical quadrotor
the drone is up for some clever tactical use:
rather than "suicide attack" of simpler systems,

it *shoots* the payload and continues loitering for follow-up observation.

A 10 tweet thread on the indomitable Fairchild Republic A-10 Warthog, the "flying tank". Enjoy! 1/10 #avgeeks #aviation #aviationdaily #USAF #Warthog
A Warthog pilot sits in a "bathtub" of titanium armour, at places up to 38 mm thick and weighing 544 kg. This is proof against direct hits from 23-mm cannon. 2/10 #avgeeks #aviation #USAF #Warthog
The GAU-8/A's barrel is some 80 calibres long, resulting in a length of nearly 2.5 meters. It's one of the largest weapons of its type in the world. 3/10 #avgeeks #aviation #USAF #Warthog

Tomcat musing: a short thread on the "dowdy" parts of one of the most glamours interceptors of the world. 1/6 #avgeeks #aviation #aviationdaily #Tomcat #TopGun #USNavy
Did you know that when the F-14 stretches its wings fully forward, the fuselage slots into which the wings retracted are sealed with inflatable airbags? The airbags use bleed air from the TF30s to inflation! 2/6
#avgeeks #aviation #TopGun #Tomcat
The F-14's variable-geometry outer wings carry full-span leading-edge slats and almost full-span trailing-edge flaps. In addition, four-section spoilers augment the differential movement of the tailrons in roll control. 3/6
