Air crashes now occur more and more often.
Causes of flight accidents are different - from the weather conditions and the human factor to faulty old equipment.
Most accidents occur during the holiday season, when airlines use all its planes to carry the maximum number of passengers.
Older aircraft and their operation
The venerable age of the aircraft is todayOne of the most common versions of the plane crashes. However, experts say that such a thing as "old plane" simply does not exist, because the civil aircraft are designed for 25-30 years of operation. At the same time as the new and "old" aircraft have completely identical aircraft technical and economic characteristics.
Throughout the life of the aircraft are constantly maintenance, repairs and modernization of large-scale production systems.
After completing all the necessary procedures, evenold aircraft was allowed to operate, have a completely workable system. At the same time they are almost indistinguishable from the aircraft, just coming down the assembly line. For reference: the Russian system of airworthiness is one of the most rigorous and uncompromising tekhkontrol systems in the world.
The replacement of old aircraft carriers performedwith the aim to minimize costs. Modern aircraft consume less fuel, require less maintenance and are more attractive. Most ships are considered to be high-quality, age ranging from 12 to 17 years, because at this age they get the best operating condition.
Dangerous Age airplanes
According to international standards, the aircraft cansafely used for 30, 40 or even 50 years. However, most experts recommend to refrain from further practice of acquiring second-hand aircraft, because the improper maintenance and servicing of equipment and systems may be in poor condition.
Limit operation timing is every type of aircraft - they are guaranteed to be 60 thousand flight hours and 12 thousand successful landings.
Thus, the aircraft may be dangerousconsidered airliners, flying more than 30 years, but he has a very important feature. The aircraft can be young or old - it is determined exclusively by incompetent-of-life. In this connection, you can even fly on an old ship, a resource which is constantly updated carrier.
