Modern Airliners and Civil Aviation Aircraft.

Looking back to that day on an isolated dune at Kitty Hawk, one can only marvel at the humble beginnings to such an explosion in technology and an industry that it would feed.

Over the last hundred years such leaps forward have been made in new aviation technology, fueled by the ever increasing demand for mobility around the planet for leisure and for business. Various wars throughout the twentieth century helped to push forward with progress as governments made funds available to find ways to fly faster and higher than the enemy.

The latter part of the 1900s and the beginning of the 2000s has been effected by the 1970 oil crisis and its legacy and seen a move toward more economic and eco-friendly airplanes.

Airlines are now demanding more from plane makers. They need to reduce their kilometer/seat costs, they need to observe more stringent noise reduction laws enforced by airport authorities as their airfields are being surrounded by creeping urban expansion.  Aircraft construction materials need to be lighter and more impervious to corrosion.

In short, aircraft manufacturers are being pushed very hard to come up with new technologies that will reduce operating costs for airlines as well as keeping the aircraft in the air longer, thus earning airfare dollars.

This site will provide some insight into the more popular airliners in the skies today. We will continue to add more aircraft, so please bookmark and come back to visit us.

    Greetings Peter.
    Well, you really seem to know your stuff!
    Surely, I will revisit your site for all my aviation inquiries. Nice niche!

    I remember the 727 from the 1960s. My first thought when I saw its photo was, “Oh yeah, the noisy one if you sit in the back!” Still a beautiful airplane, and a heck of a lot faster than the 707.
    Agree that you know your stuff. Also loved the video of pilot landing 737 in extreme turbulence. Woohoo!

      Thanks for stopping by Nina. Yes the 727 was noisy in the back with three pure jets screaming around your head. Further forward it was a dream as all the engine noise was left behind. The only one I ever got to fly on belonged to Yemenia from London to Athens and back.
