Interesting information for the avid travelers.
A seasoned traveler it is difficult something to surprise, but there are some details that you probably not thought of.
Mounting on the wing
To use the emergency chute, passengers must pass over the smooth surface of the wing, and without downs there will not be enough. So was invented a special device: it is passed a rope, one end of which is fixed at the exit and the other near the ramp. Holding the rope, the passengers can safely get out of the plane.
Axe in the cockpit
According to aviation regulations of the United States, Russia and other countries of the axe included in the list of emergency equipment and stored in the cockpit behind the chair of commander. With an axe it is possible to localize the fire, to open a jammed door or to cut a new one – in the fuselage of the aircraft there are marks that show where the best place to make an emergency exit.
The hole in the window
The Windows of the plane consists of 3 panes: external able to withstand changes in blood pressure, protects against internal damage from the inside, and secondary, in which holes, regulates / o panel is represented. The hole helps to balance the difference in pressure levels, and also prevents the formation of condensation between the panes of the window.
Auxiliary power unit
When boarding the plane we always hear the noise while the engine is not running. This noise produces power unit, which provides vital systems of the aircraft with disabled engines and used to run them. Such a generator can come in handy in poorly equipped terminals, where it is not possible to produce proper maintenance.
Service air marshals
Marshals are on Board incognito and unable to reason with the rowdy, or even to neutralize the terrorist. Service air marshals operating in the USA, France, Canada and other countries. Also it existed in the USSR, but was abolished. Russia has proposed to revive it as a division of the transport police, but while the function of the marshals staff perform some of the airlines.
Rest rooms for the crew
Some liners have small secret rooms for crew members, where they can relax during long flights. Lounges are not very comfort – their size allows you to move only by crawling, but it is possible to lie down.
Handrails next to the emergency exit
These railings are designed primarily for flight attendants, in the event of panic they do not accidentally knocked down or pushed out of the plane. Holding the handrails, a flight attendant can carry out the evacuation of passengers without fear of losing balance.
Have you ever wondered what air we breathe in airplanes? It turns out that what passes through the compressors of the engines. Perhaps because of this, and there was a misconception that the air in airplanes is very dirty. But there is nothing to fear: before you get to the salon, it goes through a cooling and cleaning, and the filters trap up to 95% bacteria.
It came after the crime (remaining undiscovered), when someone named Dan Cooper hijacked a passenger plane, received a ransom and disappeared in a skydiving accident. Since then, Boeing and Airbus planes are equipped with “shovel Cooper”, which prevents the door opening during the flight. But without her to open the door due to pressure difference happens is that the team of bodybuilders.
You may have noticed in the cabin of some aircraft small black triangles. According to captain Airbus A320, they note the places from which the aircraft wings can be considered the best way. Visual inspection may be required if pilots have doubts about the position of the flaps, and the sensors are faulty. Fortunately, this rarely happens.
