A potentiometer is a three-terminal variable resistor with a sliding or rotating contact that forms an adjustable voltage divider. Upon activation by turning a dial on the device, you can measure the amount of voltage running through different parts of a circuit. The way a potentiometer achieves this is through the use of an adjustable wiper that can be moved along the wire inside the device to control its resistance. Two of the three terminals are the input and output resistors of an internal conductive strip, while the third terminal is connected to the wiper. By adjusting the wiper and dividing the voltage between the two resistors, you can measure displacement in any direction. Though they both work to accomplish the same thing, potentiometers are split into two major design types to suit different applications. In this blog, we will be comparing these two types, linear and rotary, including some of the key benefits and potential drawbacks for each. Read more >>

Earlier in 2019, a jet stream of 231 mph swirled high above New York City. Record-breaking speeds like that had not been seen since 1957, when the previous record of 223 mph was set. Aided by this powerful jet stream, a Virgin Atlantic flight reached 801 mph, a possible record for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Unfortunately, Boeing Company does not track the speed of their planes, so there’s no way to know for sure if it was a record. That said, the 787’s average cruising speed is 561 mph, a figure that seems meager in comparison. Read more >>

In the aviation aftermarket spares industry, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and part manufacturer approvals (PMAs) are in competition. Of course, there are maintenance repair and overhaul (MRO) businesses and parts distributors, but when it comes to making the parts, competition is between the former two. Originally, OEMs had a monopoly on parts, but the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approved manufacturing PMAs and drove high prices down through competition. Although the FAA has made it clear that PMAs are just as safe as OEM parts, some are still skeptical.  Read more >>
