Both delay-on-make timers and delay-on-break timers are classified as time delay relay systems. In other words, these components are considered control relay devices with time delay functions built in. Though both mechanisms are not typically noticeable, we see them quite often in everyday life. When you step through a door and a fan overhead turns on, you’ve activated a delay-on-make. If you’ve adjusted a thermostat or air conditioning system, you have encountered a delay-on-break. Electronic parts manufacturers label both systems under the same umbrella because the processes of these electronic part types are essentially the same, but the results differ.
When buying electronic parts, there are many factors to consider. It’s important to be able to find the aviation components you need without unnecessarily overpaying, and to be sure you are purchasing the right product.
The first step is to search the market for pricing, availability, and lead times if the product is out of stock. The most efficient way to do this is to use aggregator websites. Here, potential customers can see distributors’ listings and compare prices and availability all on the same site. It’s much more efficient to use these types of sites rather than Google, because you can find many electronic parts distributors who stock the part without going back and forth between the multiple sites Google generates. Not to mention, Google search results are not always reflective of popularity or relevance thanks to features such as Google Ads.
The most important part of an aircraft engine, arguably, is the lubrication system. But it’s also the most vulnerable. Generally, lubrication systems are recirculatory. Fresh oil is introduced to the lubrication system and met with bearings, seals, and gears that wear and erode, producing abrasive contaminants. The oil flushes them away and carries them to the scavenge oil flow away from the sump where they are almost completely filtered out.
In an interview with Hush-Kit, the alternative aviation magazine, Bing Chandler, a former Lynx Observer from the Joint Helicopter Command and the British Army Air Corps Center, talks about his top 10 attack helicopters.
The structure of aircraft has changed enormously over the last century, with most changes being made to aeronautical engineering. Almost every aspect of creating and designing an aircraft has changed. Changes have been made to aerodynamics, engineering, navigation aids, interior fittings and structural design. The first successful flight conducted by the Wright brothers was powered by a small light engine that wouldn’t weigh down the structure of the aircraft itself. The first jet engine, a heavier type of engine, was created and used during WWII. Since then, the structure of the aircraft has completely changed and is still changing today.
UTC Aerospace Systems (UTAS), operating under United Technologies, is one of the world’s largest suppliers of aerospace and defense products. UTC develops, manufactures and delivers parts to some of the biggest names in the aerospace industry. As a premier Boeing parts supplier and Airbus parts supplier, UTC has been hit hard with increases in production rates demanded by these OEMs.
UTC’s CEO, Greg Hayes, said during the company’s first-quarter 2018 earnings call,
Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs) are the foundation for everything electronic. As we move further into a technology-dependent society, everything is becoming digitized- which in turn increases the demand for PCBs. According to TechNavio, a leading market research company, the worldwide PCB is forecasted to grow at a rate of 6.14 percent from 2017-2021; TechNavio reports that NIPPON MEKTRON, Zhen Ding Tech, TTM Technologies, and Unimicron are key PCBs parts suppliers.

CozLink – 1000Base-SX SFP Transceiver Modules
This bad boy can pack a punch, and you shouldn’t underestimate it just because it costs a little less than the other ones out there. With 1.25Gb/s rates you can expect this guy to be able to handle anything you throw at it.
Babcock International recently had a ceremony in Darwin, Australia to commemorate the introduction of two new Airbus H175 Helicopters. The first to be introduced to the southern half of the globe. While the ceremony was held in Australia, the two helicopters will be stationed in the little town of Dill, Timor Leste, located just north of Darwin. These two helicopters will mostly be used for search and rescue missions as well as transportation of important personnel
The Global Commercial Airframe market is expected to be on an upward trend until 2021. Market analysts predict that total revenue growth for the overall market will total more than 5.4 billion dollars before 2021. This upward trend will be attributed to the rising number of orders for new-generation aircrafts. Air traffic is significantly raising in countries such as Indonesia, Russia, India, China and even the United States, making the demand for airframe materials increase.
