Aircraft The extent to which wind shear presents a hazard to aircraft has been well documented in the last ten years. Since some wind shear can occur in otherwise relatively good weather, the most hazardous kind, a microburst, is associated with rain showers and thunderstorms even thought the parent storm may not be discernible. It was not until the early 1970\'s that the National Transportation Safety Board was able to obtain the level of data form flight recorders to quantify wind shear. This
The FAA The FAA has hindered the development of airline safety because of its policy of safety, its regulation of the airline industry, and it needs to be separate from the Department of Transportation.

Deregulation The term "free enterprise" is often used to describe America\'s market system.

Aviation The airline industry has been subject of intense price competition since it was deregulated, and the result has been a number of new carriers which specialize in regional service and no-frills operations. These carriers typically purchase older aircraft and often operate outside the industry-wide computerized reservations system. In exchange for these inconveniences, passengers receive low fares relative to the industry as a whole. This research examines two low fare air carriers, ValuJ
Midway Nothing distinguished the dawn of June 2, 1942, from countless other dawns that had fallen over tiny Midway atoll in the North Pacific. Nothing, that is, except the tension, the electric tension of men waiting for an enemy to make his move. On Midway\'s two main islands, Sand and Eastern, 3,632 United States Navy and Marine Corps personnel, along with a few Army Air Force aircrews, stood at battle stations in and near their fighters, bombers, and seaplanes, waiting for the Japanese attack
Degrees INTRODUCTION Many adults who graduate from high school immediately enter careers that do not require a college degree. Indeed, the majority of the adult population of the United States of America does not have college degrees. And the lack of degree is not a stigma. Vocations usually do not require degrees. Certainly the many trade vocations in the building industry do not require college degrees, but instead either vocational training, on-the-job training, and combinations of both. The
American Naiveté PREFACE American Naiveté The United States trade gap with China jumped 17 percent in 1996 to $39.5 billion, the worst showing for any country other than Japan. It marked the 11th strait annual increase in the deficit with China and analysts believe this trend will result in the deficit with China surpassing the imbalance with Japan probably this year. Fundamental macroeconomics informs us that China’s trade surplus, created by virtue of its cheap labor, will directly support its

Flight Man has always been fascinated with flight. As soon as there were forms of communication, sculptures, carvings, and paintings of beings with wings appeared. From the winged bulls guarding the halls of ancient Persia to the winged horse Pegasus from Greek Mythology, the idea was clear and simple. To fly is to conquer, to dominate, to be as a god ( Josephy 11- 12 ). These early individuals dreamed and experimented with the idea of flight. In the modern world many people take flight for gran

Will Hong Kong still function, economically, as it does now or will power from People\'s Republic of China (C
World War I Powers During World War I many different types of weapons were utilized by both the Allied and Central powers. Some were variations on older models of weaponry, and others were totally new inventions created to aid in the wartime effort.
