Why not all airplanes taking sea routes for be fitted with sort of arrangement like a floatplane ,so that? Topic: Case seat plane
June 19, 2019 / By Dolly
Question: even big commercial planes in case of emergency can safely land on sea water and float . Recently, we have witnessed in many parts of globe some plane crashes in which none of the passengers/crew survived. Frequency of air travel is increasing day by day there by increasing chances of accidents. I think , someone must have thought about the idea of floating the entire heavy commercial aircraft on sea surface if emergency demands, but it may not be feasible due to some unavoidable reason. But, safety of passengers on sea route must be the first priority. Why not big planes carrying 250-300 passengers be fitted with small float plane kind of arrangement?

Airplane *does* float.. if put down properly. Didn't you see "miracle on the Hudson"? When captain Sullenberger belly-landed that jet on the river? That airliner made a PERFECT water landing, and floated for a LONG time, plenty of time for everybody to get off and onto the floating ladders and whatnot. If you have floatation device, someone will be demanding parachutes. Frankly, all the seat cushions already float. The reason most perish on transoceaning crashes is because the plane either broke up in the sky, or it crahsed into the water too hard. Neither would be helped by a pitiful few floats.

Maybe the people on American Idol getting instant stardom instead of taking the long way to a career. Maybe kids skipping college and going straight into professional sports. I know you don't need a degree to play pro sports, but once the sports are over, the kid has no profession to fall back on. Fast food/ package foods instead of cooking a meal at home. I phones have more technology than just a regular phone, I don't know if that is an example Asking for homework help on the internet, instead of going to the library and doing the research yourself. Some people even expect the answers to the homework on yahoo answers, instead of doing the math or homework themselves. Maybe the way people on yahoo answers ask for medical advice instead of going to the doctor, or asking questions about their pets, instead of taking the pet to the vet.

You can actually land an aeroplane on water even if it doesn't have a float plane arrangement, because of the air in the cabin and fuel in the tanks (it happened on the Hudson river.) However this depends on other factors such as weather and suitable places to land. Also if you did manage to land somewhere in the middle of the Atlantic, a few people might die from exposure and that sort of thing before emergency services get there.

The chances of an airliner that is able to fly transoceanic routes being fitted with flotation landing gear ranks right up there with Mike Beech being a Delta pylot. Every airplane has trade-offs in the design and so far no a/c manufacturer has figured out a way to make floats practical and worth the cost. Especially in the middle of the northern Atlantic, right up next to the iceburgs.

In order to safely land on water, the plane must still have an ample supply of power to the engines, the plane would need to squarly land on the float plane arrangment. If the plane is going down, that means that the plane obviously dosen't have ample power to the engines, and it would make it almost impossible to land on the float plane arrangement. Because of this it would be more dangerous to the plane to try and land on some type of floating contraption than it would for it to land on its bare fusealge.

The airways at the instant are not involved in secure practices, extraordinarily if it eats into their salary, including huge decide on the flow beams, no longer in common terms provides to the payload, it is going to reason drag, and value extra to fly. Air shuttle is on the completed, nevertheless the main secure thank you to shuttle, have faith it or no longer. There are some rogue airways who've a foul music checklist, and enjoyed ones flights interior of Africa go through the worst in crashes, so due care could be taken in those places. i think of the Dakota plane continues to be the main secure plane of all time. Concorde became incredibly good till the deadly crash in Paris, which hailed it somewhat is downfall, even after setting up bullet evidence kevlar to the backside, it became doomed from that Paris crash. with the aid of fact as i've got stated right here, this returned cost money to slot, and extra weight to the payload, subsequently the plane grew to become uneconomical to fly.

do you have any idea how big the floats would have to be on a 747? Besides you've seen the video of the hudson river landing? So it is possible to do it w/out them

Because it's not practical. What you suggest would mean slower and less efficient planes. There's a reason why 'flying boats' aren't really used anymore.

It creates too much drag. Is your next question: Why don't they build planes the same way as those black boxes that can survive a crash?? (because if they DID, it would be too heavy to fly)

Fine, replace them with vectors. the following is 100% 1998-compatible C++ But if that's your homework, you'd then be expected to churn out generic C++ for every problem from this point! #include #include #include #include #include template void print_array(Iter beg, Iter end) {      typedef typename std::iterator_traits::value_type value_t;      copy(beg, end, std::ostream_iterator( std::cout, " "));      std::cout << '\n'; } template void insertion_sort_and_show(Iter beg, Iter end) {      for (Iter i = beg; i != end; ++i)      {          std::rotate(std::lower_bound(beg, i, *i), i, i+1);          print_array(beg, end);      } } template void quicksort_and_show(Iter beg, Iter end, const C& a) {      if (beg != end && beg+1 != end)      {          print_array(a.begin(), a.end());          typedef typename std::iterator_traits::value_type value_t;          Iter mid = beg + (end - beg)/2;          value_t pivot = *mid;          Iter split1 = std::partition(beg, end, std::bind2nd(std::less(), pivot));          Iter split2 = std::partition(split1, end, std::bind2nd(std::less_equal(), pivot));          quicksort_and_show(beg, split1, a);          quicksort_and_show(split2, end, a);      } } template void mergesort_and_show(Iter beg, Iter end, const C& a) {      if (end - beg > 1)      {          Iter mid = beg + (end - beg) / 2;          mergesort_and_show(beg, mid, a);          mergesort_and_show(mid, end, a);          std::inplace_merge(beg, mid, end);          print_array(a.begin(), a.end());      } } int main() {      int a[12] = {18,15,11,4,2,9,10,5,3,12,6,7};      std::vector a1(a, a+12);      std::vector a2 = a1;      std::vector a3 = a1;      std::cout << "Insertion sort:\n";      insertion_sort_and_show(a1.begin(), a1.end());      std::cout << "Quicksort:\n";      quicksort_and_show(a2.begin(), a2.end(), a2);      std::cout << "Merge sort:\n";      mergesort_and_show(a3.begin(), a3.end(), a3); } and oops, it's std::array (although std::tr1::array is also supported) in 2010 Express already, and it's been in std::array in g++ since 4.4 at least (with -std=c++0x commandline switch). But yes, tr1/array has been around for even longer (and boost.array even longer!)
