As our world becomes increasingly digital, there are numerous network devices that have come about to facilitate various operations. The term “network device” is fairly broad, covering simplistic unmanaged switches to robust routers. Additionally, various network devices can perform multiple functions, blurring the lines of classification. To assist you in better understanding the networking world, we will discuss some common types of network devices that you may run across.

Computing devices have become commonplace in almost every business and home in the developed world. Children are learning about computer technology as early as middle school as their usage is becoming ubiquitous. Designers and engineers have created an enjoyable end-user experience that focuses strongly on user interface and ease of access, but important insights can be learned from understanding how a computer processes information. Computers contain hundreds of parts, but the most important to understand are input, processing devices, output, and memory devices.

While pilots are required to learn how to conduct an emergency descent during their flight training, it is a procedure that many hope to never have to execute in real situations. Nevertheless, there is always a chance that an issue may occur, forcing the need for an emergency descent even if in a nonoptimal area. As such, it is crucial that pilots are well familiar with the basics of emergency procedures, and are aware that different aircraft have varying steps and configurations for such operations. In this blog, we will provide a basic overview of emergency descent procedures for single-engine piston aircraft, those of which are the type that most pilots will train in.

Reciprocating engines have long served aircraft with their ability to transform pressure into a rotational motion with the use of one or more reciprocating pistons. Also known as piston engines, such internal combustion engines have seen constant development over the the past century with new and advanced models superseding their predecessors through improved designs and efficiencies. In this blog, we will discuss the common types of aircraft reciprocating engines that have been developed over the years, allowing you to best understand the differences between each.

The flight data recorder, often referred to as a black box, is an electronic recording device that may be implemented within an aircraft for the means of registering flight pertinent data that is used to investigate accidents and incidents. Modern flight recording systems actually consist of two separate devices, those of which are the flight data recorder (FDR) and the cockpit voice recorder (CVR). Both of these instruments record different parameters, and they have both seen significant improvements over the years for their capabilities and design. As flight recording devices are paramount for increasing the safety of aircraft to prevent future accidents, understanding their functionality and use is crucial.
