      Fun Facts About the Electric Plane

      Fun Facts About the Electric Plane

      Everything You Didn’t Even Know You Needed to Know!

      Electric planes are the future of flying. Since they swooped onto the aviation stage, electric planes have left jet fuel-based aircrafts quivering in their presence. Here are three facts you might not have known about these ground-breaking emission-free aircrafts.

      #1: They Have Big Batteries

      Instead of jet fuel, electric planes use batteries to fire up the engine – but obviously, batteries lack fuel’s density. That’s why electric plane batteries are big. Very big. As in 3.8 metric ton big.

      #2: Less Maintenance

      Seeing as electric motors don’t need gearboxes to bring the engine to a standstill, fuel costs are not just reduced – but eliminated – and maintenance is almost zero, seeing as there is no need for a traditional air-and-fuel mixture to expand and power the plane.

      #3: By Any Other Name…

      There are countless electric planes out there, from UberAir to the Dubai Air Taxi to Lilium – each service a unique purpose in the skies and on the ground.

      While the electric plane sector is still in its infancy, one thing’s for sure – it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. Be prepared for the future of flying with the most comfortable, breathable, and fashionable mechanic coveralls in the business. If we do say so ourselves.

      The Latest Air Filters for Post-COVID Flights

      It’s no secret that COVID-19 changed the way we travel, forever. Airplane powerhouses are more aware than ever of the need for more advanced cabin air filtration, seeing as hundreds of people are breathing the same, recycled oxygen for hours on end. With serious concerns about the coronavirus spreading throughout cabin air, the European Aviation Safety Association (EASA) recently published a safety guidance bulletin. Here are three suggestions every mechanic needs to know:

      #1: Industrial-Grade HEPA Filters

      High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters can be installed in aircrafts, but recirculation fans should “never be stopped”. These circulate cabin air in its entirety in about 2-4 minutes, capturing a minimum of 99.7% of airborne pathogens.

      #2: Avoiding Blocked Vents

      This is crucial when it comes to maximizing air flow and preventing the spread of contamination. It’s recommended that recirculation and fresh air systems be operated to exchange the entire cabin’s air volume ahead of time before passengers board.

      #3: Ending Recirculation Entirely

      While it sounds extreme, if a plane’s re-circulation system doesn’t contribute towards critical functionality in-flight, then the potential to keep SARS-Cov-2 particles stagnant will prevent them from being captured by the aircraft’s filtration system.

      Catching a flight is clearly no longer as simple as, well, catching a flight. Aircraft mechanics have their work cut out for them more than ever before. If you’re one of them, don’t make another move without our short-sleeve coverall. With comfort and breathability guaranteed, you can get the job done with confidence.

      What Aircraft Maintenance Crews Need to Know

      While aviation crew vests have long been crucial in the aviation industry, safety regulations are always changing. Here are five safety vest regulation mandates you need to know if you’re an aircraft mechanic.

      1: They Need to Be Reflective

      Reflective safety vests must be worn at all times on airport ground. Anyone found without one will be fined or asked to leave. Is it worth the risk?

      2: They Must be Worn by Everyone, at All Times

      From baggage loaders to tug drivers to mechanics, anyone who works at a major airport must be wearing their reflective safety vest day and night.

      3: They Need to Comply with ANSI 107-1999 Standards

      From breathable fluorescent polyester fabric to high-visibility 2” reflective tape on the front and back, aircraft personnel can’t just wear any safety vest. They need a compliant one designed to mitigate worker hazards.

      Looking Ahead

      Safety isn’t negotiable. To stay safe and compliant on the job, choose the coverall company trusted by the best aircraft companies and mechanics in the industry.
