Back to the Future of Personal Aviation

1990-09-01
901990
This paper reviews the status of personal aviation and proposes that information technology has made possible a personal aviation industry on a scale last imagined in the nineteen forties. ...Helicopters and lift fans are examined in light of the specifications, but a kind of flying car seems more plausible. Personal aviation emerges as a system of three levels, including the Global Positioning System for navigation, an infrastructure called Skyways, and modular conveyances called Starcars that function as automobiles and airplanes.

An Evaluation of General Aviation Aircraft Flying Qualities

1966-02-01
660219
The flying qualities of six late-model personal-owner aircraft are generally satisfactory for operation in the visual-flight environment. ...During instrument flight, particularly in the presence of turbulence, the flying qualities of these aircraft are such that excessive pilot effort is required to perform precise tracking tasks such as instrument landing system approaches.

The Personal Computer Transport Analyzer Program

2006-07-17
2006-01-2050
It was decided that the most effective way to achieve a user-friendly interface was to develop a C++ object-oriented Windows language (heat and mass) transport phenomena analysis program. The Personal Computer Transport Analysis Program (PCTAP) would allow the programmer to develop small models of different transport devices, such as heat exchangers and tubes, and then link and modify these models to form the overall PCTAP. ...The Personal Computer Transport Analysis Program (PCTAP) would allow the programmer to develop small models of different transport devices, such as heat exchangers and tubes, and then link and modify these models to form the overall PCTAP.

CURRENT
ARINC434-2
This document will address measures pertaining to and directly associated with the maintainability and reliability of FSTDs throughout their entire life cycle, from initial specification and design to de-commissioning. Although the primary emphasis of this document is on full flight simulators (with motion and visual systems), it should be applicable in part or total to all FSTDs.

2019-01-1347
Nowadays, many different research efforts are being conducted to develop personal ventilation system for aircrafts. A numerical CFD study is presented as an example analysis, finding the relationship between the initial jet temperature and mass flow to the local thermal comfort on the head, chest and face. ...The study first investigated whether the personal ventilation jet has influence on only one of the passengers or if it also affects the other. ...It was demonstrated that the proposed personal ventilation outlet can influence local thermal comfort with minimum influence on the adjacent passenger.

ARINC759
This document sets forth the characteristics of an Aircraft Interface Device (AID) intended for installation in commercial aircraft. The intent of the document is to provide general and specific design guidance for the development of an AID for use in retrofit applications associated with aircraft typically developed between the mid-1970s through the 1990s, that primarily utilize ARINC 700 series avionics, and that interface with the aircraft via ARINC 429 and ARINC 717 unidirectional buses and Hi/Lo discrete signals.

HELIos is a single seat, three wheel, vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) flying car concept. It uses duct enclosed counter-rotating propellers. This technology eliminates the need for a tail rotor and makes the vehicle more compact. ...HELIos is equipped with a guidance control system for safe and precise flying. In emergency cases, the driver/pilot can employ a ballistic parachute, which allows the vehicle to float safely down to earth.
