For the Ultimate Aerobatic Or Fighter Plane Experience, Visit the Aviation Adventure Industry

Of all of the adventures that people can pursue, piloting an airplane is probably the most exclusive. To begin with, flying an airplane means that you'll have to invest a reasonable amount of time and money to attain your pilot's license. Then there's the cost of buying your own airplane or renting one every time you want fly. In addition, you should also invest in advanced air safety courses to be ready for any unexpected situation that comes your way. Add these three things together and you're looking at multiple thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours spent pursuing the adventure of personal flight. Perhaps you have the time but not the money to pilot an airplane, or perhaps you have the money but not the time. In either case, there's no reason to let your dreams of piloting an airplane go by the wayside; not when the aviation adventure industry offers you the ultimate fighter plane experience without even requiring you to possess a pilot's license.

How is this possible? Companies in the aviation adventure industry draw almost 50 percent of their business from offering flight adventures to members of the general public who don't possess a pilot's license. After choosing from a range of customizable flight packages, clients of the aviation adventure industry receive accelerated ground training in flight maneuvers and air safety and then take to the sky with an experienced military fighter pilot riding along as their copilot. Since the planes are equipped with dual controls, the fighter pilot can assume control of the aircraft whenever necessary. What this means is that you can focus on having the adventure of a lifetime without worrying about your safe return to the runway.

Most aviation adventure companies offer two basic kinds of flight adventures: Aerobatic flight and simulated air-to-air combat. A good example of aerobatic flight is the kind of flight that you see in air shows. Flying in an Extra 300L, a high performance aircraft that is regularly used in air shows, you'll perform a variety of gravity defying, pulse pounding maneuvers that constitute the ultimate adrenaline rush. If you choose a fighter plane experience package, you'll also be performing some awesome maneuvers, but the main focus will be on simulating every aspect of classic air-to-air combat, even to the point of aiming a real gun sight at enemy aircraft and firing simulated bullets to the sound of machine gun fire. There are several kinds of aerobatic and air combat flight packages to choose from, any of which can be customized to meet your needs.

Aviation adventure packages typically start at less than $500 for one-day flight adventures. But you can also purchase multi-day flight packages that include a little bit of everything for less than $3,900. At first glance, this might seem like a lot of money to invest in a leisure activity. But when you consider that the cost of the average family vacation is around $2,000.00, treating yourself or someone special to the ultimate aerobatic or fighter plane experience doesn't seem so out of the question. And when you consider the total time and money that goes into piloting an airplane, the flight packages offered by the aviation adventure industry seem like a better deal still.

Why the Child Aviation Restraint System is Better Than an Airplane Car Seat

Today, when parents drive with youngsters in the car they don't think twice about buckling them into their car seats. They don't take "no" for an answer and the kids rarely even protest because it's just such a routine thing. Keeping kids safe when riding in an automobile has become second nature to modern American parents.

Considering the concern parents show for motor vehicle safety, you would think that hurtling through the air at 500 miles per hour in a plane with a child would provoke every parent to carry an airplane approved car seat. But if you look around airports these days, traveling families rarely carry car seats for their child's airplane seat. The reason is simple - an airplane car seat is the same piece of equipment as the automobile car seat. It's heavy, bulky, meant to sit solidly in the back seat of an automobile and never meant to be carried through today's airports. This is like using the same boots you hike with in summer to trek through a meadow covered with deep winter snow. That said, parents shouldn't be any less concerned about their child's safety in a plane going eight times faster than they regularly drive their cars.

A handful of conscientious parents do still lug car seats through crowded airports, but they face another obstacle once they board the plane - installing the seat. For starters, car seats are only allowed in window seats. If these bulky seats were anywhere else, they would block other passengers from getting in and out. Even the installation process is a headache because the child cannot be in the seat while this is being done. This turns installation in to a two person process, one to install the seat and another to watch the child. For parents who've gotten this far, they're often confronted with the reality that these car seats simply don't fit well, if at all, in these small airplane seats. To avoid the hassle, many parents just forego any type of child restraint and just buckle their children in with the traditional lap belt. This is nothing short of opting for convenience over safety. Even in rough turbulence a lap belt is insufficient protection for small children who lack the ability to brace themselves.

Several years ago the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) recognized that fewer children were flying with airplane approved car seats and they addressed the situation head on. After extensive dynamic testing, the FAA certified the first ever child aviation restraint, certifying that it provided an equivalent level of safety to a car seat used on a plane.

Unlike a car seat, the Child Aviation Restraint System (CARES) is a light weight buckle and belt device that turns the airplane seat into something that resembles a flight attendant's airplane safety restraint. It is highly portable, easy to install, can be used in any size airplane seat, and in any airplane seat in the row. The best part is that it weighs only a pound and takes only a minute to install. The Child Aviation Restraint System works in conjunction with the regular airplane seat lap belt. Instead of being threaded through a slot beneath or behind a car seat, the lap belt goes across the child's lap. Once the shoulder strap portion of CARES is installed, the lap belt simply loops through the lower portion. The child remains comfortable, yet safely strapped in to a multipoint harness. Another advantage is the fact that the child sits in his own seat while the airplane child restraint is installed around him.

Perhaps the best thing about the FAA approved child aviation restraint is that it lets parents provide the safe seat they know their kids need and deserve, without breaking their backs and dreading the trek through airports with a car seat and dealing with a hassle ridden installation after boarding. Moms can actually travel alone with two youngsters seating each on either side of her. Parents are encouraged by the portability of CARES and the ease of installation, allowing them to have a stress free and safe flight with their children.

Airplane Accidents & Injuries - How an Airplane Accident Lawyer Can Help You

Air travel is perhaps the only transportation mode which can be termed as the safest and the riskiest at the same time. It is safe since air traffic regulations and aviation standards are strictly observed by airlines and other aviation authorities, which minimize the risk, but at the same time, everyone is aware of the risks associated with an airplane accident and crash.

We all know that airplane accidents are mostly fatal, and even though the occurrences of airplane accidents are not as frequent, their consequences are often disastrous. Although the frequency of the occurrence of airplane accidents vary with each year, but roughly around 30 fatal airline accidents occur every year and accidents to private and jet aircraft are apart from that.

But that does not mean that aviation accidents always result in the loss of the lives of the passengers and the crew. Not every accident is serious, and most of them, about which we never hear in the news, are mild accidents, which only result in injuries. If you are confident about the quality of aviation standards and precautionary measures offered by your air plane, then you should know that the chances for survival are good and that an accident should only result in injuries.

But why should you suffer as a passenger from an air plane accident injuries when it was not your fault? Did you know that most of the airplane accidents occur due to human error? Although the environmental factors are always there as a threat to air plane traffic, but despite all the aviation standards followed by airplane crews, they are still not able to prevent the occurrence of airplane accidents from time to time.

Even if you have suffered injuries in a crash landing, or in a more serious aviation accident, you are protected by the law to be compensated for your injuries. And if you have lost a loved one to an airplane accident, the grieving family can also seek out help for the necessary legal compensation, which is their right. While going through the trauma, you should leave all your worries to a reliable airplane accidents lawyer to take care of all the legal subtleties in helping you out with your goal. Not only will that offer you the moral support you need at a time like this, but will also fulfill the purpose for which you engaged the services of an aviation accident lawyer.

Obtaining the Assist of an Aviation Accident Attorney

Many people travel by air because it is fast and comfortable. This is especially true when travelling long distance or to overseas destinations. People see this as a safe option. The airway is wide and there are less chances of accidents. While this may be true, mishaps may still occur during flights. Accidents range from small injuries due to falling baggage, to fatal crashes. When you wind up in these situations, an aviation accident attorney can be very helpful. These professionals work by representing passengers who suffered injuries or wrongful death due to airplane accidents.

Why hire an aviation accident attorney?

Aviation accidents may involve large commercial planes to small private jets. Such accidents should not be taken lightly as there are special laws on these. Commercial airline companies have lawyers specializing in aviation law but as the affected party, you must know how to protect your rights. Whether the plane was in-flight or on the ground when the crash happened, you will need a help from an aviation accident attorney.

Airplane accidents are extremely serious cases. There are great chances of getting injuries, damage to properties, and even wrongful death. As mentioned, airline companies have a group of aviation accident attorneys but you cannot be sure they have your best interest in mind. The same is true with legal counsels and insurance companies of private plane owners and operators. Nothing beats hiring your personal airplane accident attorney who understands your situation and knows the proper way to pursue your claims in court.

What are Aviation Laws and Standards?

Aviation Laws refer to a set of rules and regulations all airlines, pilots, and airplane staff must abide. Negligence among these people resulting to injuries and casualties, is a form of violation. This means, people who suffered from negligence on the part of the service provider are entitled to compensation.

Commercial pilots must meet rigorous set of standards. They have to be at least 18 years old, and must have at least 250 hours of flight experience. They must also have extra training in low visibility. They must be well versed with the Instrument Flight Rules (IFR), which are regulations set by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). These pilots must be FAA-rated to fly by instruments and must have 40 hours of experience on it. Aviation accident attorneys, though not necessarily pilots, are familiar with these laws including the FAA regulations.

What are the common forms of accidents?

Airplane injuries are often due to falling luggage or items from the overhead compartments. This is actually the most common forms of accidents involving travelling by air. These things, specially the bulky items, can fall onto passengers and may lead to serious injuries. This can be due to turbulence, faulty bins, or negligence of the staff.

As mentioned, any carelessness from the company and its staff is accountable to the law. Whenever you suffer from injuries or damage to property involving airplanes, the law is there to protect your rights. As treatments and rehabilitation can be very costly, you have the right to get compensation from the responsible party.

Look for your airplane accident attorney online. Choose an experienced one so you have more chances of winning your case.

Is the General Aviation Industry Finally on an Upswing?

Over the past three decades, there's been a steady decline in the number of U.S. pilots. According to the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA), there were 827,000 active, certificated pilots in 1980. By 2011, that number had dropped to just 617,000. During that same 30-year period, production of single-engine planes dropped from 14,000 per year to fewer than 700.

But for the past three years, AOPA has made understanding this declining trend and reversing it a top priority. AOPA actions include developing a network of flying clubs, and speaking out in Washington to help keep the rising cost and complexity of aviation under control.

Thankfully, 2013 numbers are indicating a positive upswing, based on data from the General Aviation Manufacturers Association's (GAMA) 2013 General Aviation Statistical Databook & 2014 Industry Outlook.

Here's a look at what's been causing the pilot and production decline, and good news from GAMA's 2013/2014 aviation industry report.

What's been causing the decline?

According to a Washington Post article posted February 9 titled, "Small aviation businesses say pilot shortage could drive industry into the ground," there are a variety of factors that have contributed to the decline in pilots and production over the past decades, including rising fuel prices and heightened flying restrictions following the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

One reason is that the recent economic downturn has left fewer people with discretionary income. Others place much of the blame on federal regulators, whom they accuse of making it too difficult for pilots to obtain and renew their licenses, which in turn hurts small aviation businesses and the aviation industry as a whole.

Many commercial pilots come from the GA pilot pool, and the global airline industry will need almost a half million new commercial airline pilots over the next 20 years, according to the Boeing Pilot and Technical Market Outlook for 2013-2032.

Good news from GAMA's 2013/2014 industry report

Here are some positive numbers from GAMA's annual statistical databook.

Airplane shipments and billings - In 2013, airplane shipments increased by 4.3 percent to 2,256 airplane deliveries, and billings increased 24 percent to $23.4 billion across all airplane types. This is the second-highest industry billing number ever recorded-the industry's peak billings occurred in 2008 at $24.8 billion.

Business jets - After slowing the past four years, the business jet market stabilized in 2013. There were 678 business jets delivered in 2013, up from 672 in 2012. Several new models and increasing demand helped stabilize the market and increase deliveries.

North American market share rose to 52.4 percent from 49.7 percent in 2012. Europe's market share declined, however, from 20.8 percent in 2012 to 15.6 percent in 2013. Customer deliveries included 11.9 percent to customers in the Asia-Pacific region, 11.1 percent to Latin America, and 9.0 percent to the Middle East and Africa.

Turboprops - Turbo-propeller plane shipments also grew in 2013, increasing to 645 shipments from 584 shipments in 2012, a 10.4 percent increase. Shipments of agricultural turboprops, which GAMA began tracking in 2011, remained strong. Traditional single- and twin-engine turboprop shipments provided year-over-year increases in unit deliveries. North American customers took 57.1 percent of turboprop airplane deliveries in 2013, up from 48.6 percent in 2012. The Asia Pacific region took the second-largest market share at 14 percent, followed by Latin American at 13.2 percent. European customers took delivery of 10.5 percent, and the Middle East and Africa accounted for 5.3 percent.

Turbine helicopters - The turbine helicopter segment provided positive delivery performance in 2013 based on analysis of equivalent companies from 2012. GAMA identified 782 turbine helicopter shipments in 2013, which is an increase of 9.2 percent compared to the prior year for the same reporting companies. In this year's databook, GAMA has expanded the available historical data about helicopter shipments with select information from 1999 through 2013.

Piston airplane and helicopter deliveries - Feedback from airplane and helicopter manufacturers indicates that global demand from flight schools is contributing to year-over-year growth. Piston airplane deliveries totaled 933 shipments in 2013, up from 908 shipments in 2012, a 2.8 percent increase. North America ordered 52.8 percent of piston engine airplanes, Europe 17.2 percent, followed by the Asia-Pacific region at 15.1 percent, Latin America at 10 percent, and the Middle East and Africa at 5 percent of shipments. In 2013, the general aviation industry delivered 335 piston-powered helicopters, which was a slight increase from the 328 units delivered in 2012.

Turbine operators - According to JETNET, LLC, the fractional fleet of turbine operators fell to 869 aircraft in 2013, decreasing each year since 2008, the year it peaked at 1,094 aircraft. There were 4,365 fractional owners in 2013, which is also down compared to five years ago, when there were 5,179 owners. The worldwide turbine airplane fleet included 33,861 airplanes in 2013 and an additional 19,509 turbine helicopters.

Pilot population falling - The active U.S. pilot population continues to fall. The private pilot population has declined since the early 1980s, when it peaked at 357,479 pilots, and in recent years has lost between 5,000 and 10,000 active pilots each year. There were only 180,214 private pilots at the end of 2013, and a total of 599,086 total active pilots in the U.S. in 2013. One bright spot: 40,621, or 6.78 percent, were female-the highest ratio of female aviators on record.

Signs safety is improving - A welcome decrease: The FAA's preliminary data about general aviation safety shows there were approximately 216 fatal accidents during the year, a double-digit decline in the number of fatal general aviation accidents during 2013. While data is preliminary, the FAA's goal of reducing the GA fatal accident rate to one fatal accident per 100,000 hours flown may be possible to achieve by 2018.

GAMA also includes GA safety data developed by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) for 2006 through 2012. EASA statistics from 2012 also show a decline in the total number of accidents and the number of fatal accidents.
