As a vital part of the rain removal system in aircraft, airplane windshield wipers play an integral role in maintaining the pilot’s visibility. Unlike the windshield wipers found on ground vehicles, those in aircraft are not used for the entire duration of a rainy trip, but rather during taxiing only. Once the plane is in flight, the windshield wipers are often rendered inoperative. Due to other rain protection systems, many aircraft do not rely on windshield wipers at all; however, commercial planes must be equipped with windshield wipers for specific situations. Despite the fact that many aircraft operate without windshield wipers, they are a significant component of flight in rainy weather for some. With this in mind, this blog will explore the way aircraft windshield wipers operate and the functions they perform.

When aircraft land on a runway at the end of a flight operation, it is important that they are able to stop forward movement as quickly as possible while ensuring no damage to structures or major discomfort to passengers. The use of reverse thrust is common for aircraft deceleration, and it reduces stopping distances and the amount of wear brakes and wheels face. Modern assemblies redirect propulsive forces through the adjustment of a portion of the engine cowling. To ensure that the adjustment is maintained regardless of motion or stressors, redundant systems must be put in place. The standard is to use electromagnetic brakes or locks, allowing for the cowling to remain in place until an electrical signal is given for release.

A majority of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and military aircraft are equipped with advanced electronics and equipment that is integral to their optimal functionality. As electronic devices produce excess heat, they necessitate thermal management systems to improve their reliability. Typically, the amount of heat output is equal to the power input as long as there are no additional energy interactions. As such, selecting the proper thermal relief system should correspond to the amount of heat that must be expelled.
