Trailblazer In Flight

by Yvonne Pope Sintes, Trailblazer In Flight Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Trailblazer In Flight books, Yvonne Pope Sintes only ever wanted to fly. But in the 1950s, very few women were allowed into the male dominated world of aviation. Whilst many women were consigned to the role of house-wife, Yvonne chose a different path. Her dream was to join the ranks of the Royal Air Force, crisscrossing international skies. Despite an awareness of the pitfalls that might await her, she embarked upon her mission. Her story, told here for the first time and in her own words, is one characterized by gritty determination against the odds, a startling level of achievement and a continually modest approach to life and her own accomplishments.A career trajectory marked by such landmark achievements as becoming the first female Air Traffic Controller with the Ministry of Aviation, the first female civil airline pilot in the UK, and the first female jet airline captain in Britain are relayed in this inspiring autobiography. Bomb scares, engine failures and other perilous episodes punctuated Yvonne's experience. All are enlivened during the course of the narrative. A raft of prestigious awards including the Brabazon Cup, the International Owner and Pilots Association award for best Air Traffic Controller in Europe, the Amelia Earhart memorial Scholarship for licensed pilots to advance in aviation, the Whitney Straight Award for courage and determination in pursuit of an aviation career (awarded by Princess Anne) and the British Airline Pilots Association Award for work towards air safety all were awarded to Yvonne during the course of a spectacular career, the details of which make for a truly inspiring and engrossing read.Yvonne has taken this opportunity to record the pitfalls and landmark successes of her career for posterity. She does so in a style that is at once both humble and immensely celebratory of a profession that has meant so much to her."I first met Yvonne and her husband Miguel in Mahon during September 1992 when I was researching my book on Dan-Air. It was immediately clear that she had a rare and fascinating story that deserved telling in its entirety to reach a much wider audience. I am pleased and proud to have played a small part in making that happen!" - Graham M. Simons, EditorAs featured in the Surrey Advertiser, Essence Magazine and Discover Your History

Arsenal Of Defense

by J'Nell L. Pate, Arsenal Of Defense Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Arsenal Of Defense books, Named after Mexican War general William Jenkins Worth, Fort Worth began as a military post in 1849. More than a century and a half later, the defense industry remains Fort Worth's major strength with Lockheed Martin's F-35s and Bell Helicopter's Ospreys flying the skies over the city. Arsenal of Defense: Fort Worth's Military Legacy covers the entire military history of Fort Worth from the 1840s with tiny Bird's Fort to the massive defense plants of the first decade of the twenty-first century. Although the city is popularly known as "Cowtown" for its iconic cattle drives and stockyards, soldiers, pilots, and military installations have been just as important--and more enduring--in Fort Worth's legacy. Although Bird's Fort provided defense for early North Texas settlers in the mid nineteenth century, it was the major world conflicts of the twentieth century that developed Fort Worth's military presence into what it is today. America's buildup for World War I brought three pilot training fields and the army post Camp. During World War II, headquarters for the entire nation's Army Air Forces Flying Training Command came to Fort Worth. The military history of Fort Worth has been largely an aviation story--one that went beyond pilot training to the construction of military aircraft. Beginning with Globe Aircraft in 1940, Consolidated in 1942, and Bell Helicopter in 1950, the city has produced many thousands of military aircraft for the defense of the nation. Lockheed Martin, the descendant of Consolidated, represents an assembly plant that has been in continuous existence for over seven decades. With Lockheed Martin the nation's largest defense contractor, Bell the largest helicopter producer, and the Fort Worth Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Federal Medical Center Carswell the reservist's training pattern for the nation, Fort Worth's military defense legacy remains strong. Arsenal of Defense won first place in the Press Women of Texas Communications Contest (2012).

Airborne Trailblazer

by Lane E. Wallace, Airborne Trailblazer Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Airborne Trailblazer books, This book is the story of a very unique airplane and the contributions it has made to the air transportation industry. NASA's Boeing 737-100 Transport Systems Research Vehicle was the prototype 737, acquired by the Langley Research Center in 1974 to conduct research into advanced transport aircraft technologies. In the twenty years that followed, the airplane participated in more than twenty different research projects, evolving from a research tool for a specific NASA program into a national airborne research facility. It played a critical role in developing and gaining acceptance for numerous significant transport technologies, including "glass cockpits," airborne windshear detection systems, data link for air traffic control communications, the microwave landing system, and the satellite-based global positioning system (GPS). Since the airplane played a role in such a wide variety of research programs, its story also provides an enlightening study of the many factors that influence the selection, development, and application of new technologies.

Electric Probe Data Analysis For Trailblazer Ii Third Flight

by Ronald A. Johnson, Electric Probe Data Analysis For Trailblazer Ii Third Flight Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Electric Probe Data Analysis For Trailblazer Ii Third Flight books, The ion current measured by flush mounted electric probes is compared with that predicted from flow field calculations for the Trailblazer 2 over an altitude range from 220 Kft to 270 Kft. Various approaches, all of which assumed the sheath to be collision-dominated were used to infer ion currents from the flow field predictions. Except for current traces associated with those probes located on the nose cap at 270 Kft, the experimental results were bound from above by the total convective current in the boundary layer and from below by a quasi-one-dimensional current or a diffusion current. The inclusion of convective effects helps provide agreement between theory and experiment for some of the higher altitude data. But over the altitude range considered, it is evident that no simple theory in which it is assumed that either convection, diffusion or a thermal flux respectively is the dominant mechanism for transporting ions into the sheath, produces results consistent with the data. The ion transport phenomena are too complex to be described by such simple theories. (Author).
