Aircraft magnetos are components used to generate an electrical current to be used by the aircraft ignition system. They typically consist of a coil assembly that has a primary coil and a magnet rotor which interact with each other to generate current. The coil assembly includes a primary coil which is made up of about 200 turns of heavy copper wire wound around an iron core and a secondary coil, that of which is a thin copper wire wound around the primary coil. Next to the coils is a permanent magnet which rotates when actuated. As the magnet rotates, its poles continually change position so that a flowing current is generated in the primary coil. This current creates a powerful magnetic field in the iron core which encapsulates the whole coil assembly.

Whether you operate aircraft with turbojet engines, turbofan engines, turboprop engines, or any other gas turbine engine type, then the ability of flight for your vehicle is made possible through jet fuel. Jet fuel is a specialized form of aviation fuel for gas turbine engine aircraft, and it is a mixture of hydrocarbons that is either colorless or straw-colored in appearance. Depending on the area of operation and the type of aircraft one is flying, there are numerous subtypes of jet fuel that can be used. To help you better understand jet fuel and its applications better, we will discuss the various types of jet fuel available, their compositions, and more.

When you think about all the components on an aircraft that require electricity, it becomes easy to appreciate the role that batteries play in aviation. While not the primary source of electrical power during routine operations, batteries can supply energy to various entertainment, comfort, navigation, and other systems that would otherwise be dysfunctional in case of generator failure. In this blog, we will discuss one of the fundamental components of an aircraft's electrical system, the battery.
