How about: Airspeed Indicator (or Mach Meter), Rate of Climb/Dive, Turn and Bank Indicator, Engine Temperature, Exhaust Temperature, OMNI, NAVCOM, Gyroscopes, INAV, GPS, ILS, GSI, DME, etc. etc.
What engineering professional organization is most useful for a mechanical drafter?
ANSI standards, Aviation, Engineering...which organization will provide a mechanical drafter the most useful and relevant information?
Question answered by mike c
It truly depends on what product you are working on; cars, SAE, general manufacturing, ASME, Electric motors, NEMA.
I have been a member of each at different points in my career. The biggest benefit of any of them is access to standards codes and discount on technical books.

What would be the cheaper route on becoming an airline pilot?
As of so far I have thought of one route on becoming an airline pilot and that is to go to University and take the Aviation Engineering with Pilot Studies BEng, course while at the same hiring an instructor for 1 to 1 on planes.
I'm asking for any other routes that could either cheaper and more beneficial.
Question answered by Bill
Go to www.pprune.org (the professional pilot's rumour network)
There are a set of 'wannabe' forums with a lot of advice on the career paths.
But please make sure you read the FAQs first, here are so many people asking the same basic questions. Failure to read the FAQs will get you flamed!
Is Aviation Engineering the same as Aeronautical Engineering?
I see some colleges offering Aviation Engineering alongside AeroSPACE engineering. Is it just the same with a different name or another course altogether?
Question answered by Manisha
yup, Aviation Engineering the same as Aeronautical Engineering as per vision
Is aviation engineering interesting? how hard is it ?
I want to study aviation engineering, but I need to know about the experiences of aviation students
if you have any information or any thing that can help me
please share it..
for example.. tell me
is it too much hard?
is it boring?
Question answered by Wooly Socks
It's definitely not boring... if you are interested in this type of thing. I think the general test here is which subject you liked better in high school- chemistry or physics- with physics equaling aerospace and chemistry equaling chem-Es. And if you thought both were boring (and it WASN'T because of the teacher)... you might ask yourself why you picked engineering.
It's school, so there are bound to be boring moments, but I find almost all of it to be pretty cool. Plus when you're talking to your old friends and they're talking about taking Government and Finance or whatever, you get to drop course names like Thermodynamics and Differential Equations. And that's always fun.
As for the level of difficulty: yes, it's tough. Very tough. Calc II tried to murder me. But that's why we get paid so much when it's all over. You don't have to worry about searching for months for a job, either- when you're an aerospace engineer, companies come looking for YOU.
Is being an MP in the marines just the same in all the other military branches?
I took the ASVAB last night for the Marines and scored pretty well to do what i wanted to do. My three picks are MP, Intel, and Aviation engineer. I pretty much got the scoop on the intel program but now i want to know about the MP. Is the MP program a good field to go in? Will they get send to iraq? And is there any type of good bonus pay for either intel or MP?
Question answered by Chesty Puller Lives
Is being an MP in the marines just the same in all the other military branches?
Is the MP program a good field to go in?
A. Personal encounters & though I wasn't an MP (I had drinking buddies that were MPs), YES. If I could turn back time and redo my DEP enlistment (30 yrs and 2 days ago), it would have been changed to MP K-9 handler or I wouldn't sign up again.
Will they get send to Iraq?
A. YES, there are None or minimal Marine MOS that shouldn't be in theater. You'll learn this in BOOT but Commandant Archibald Henderson took ALL of the Swinging D--ks in the Corps to fight my ancestors, Seminole Indians, in Florida in the 1800s.
(BTW Capitalize the M in Marines). It is a title.
Is there any type of good bonus pay for either intel or MP?
A. That is a question for the Recruiter or Military.Com.

What branches are Army OCS candidates usually put in?
I am doing my Army OCS Selection Board next month and I am curious about the branches and how likely it is that I will get what I want. I am hoping for Aviation, Engineering, Infantry or Artillery and I am dreading things like MI, Signal and Transportation. How likely am I to get Aviation if it is my first choice? And if I list my top 3 places to be stationed are Germany, Italy and South Korea, how likely will I be stationed there?
I will give 10 points for the best and most helpful answer.
Question answered by Oliver A
Max your PT and be squared away all around. The better you do at OCS, most likely you will graduate near the top of your class, and therefore get the branch you want. However, you must bear in mind that the branch you are assigned to, has more to do with the Army's needs. They put you where they need you. However, do not be discouraged and strive to do your best! You may get what you ask for.
As for station assignments, it all depends on where you are needed. Again, you go where the Army needs you. Right now, a lot of boots are needed on the ground in Afghanistan and Iraq. Best way to look at it is this. Depending upon the branch you are assigned to (i.e. - Infantry, Field Artillery, etc.) and what kind of units are at various posts, will play a role in where your are assigned. For example, a Field Artillery officer is likely to be assigned to Fort Sill OK - home of the field artillery, Fort Bragg NC, Fort Lewis WA, Fort Richardson AK - places where Field Artillery units are.
Hope these help you out. These are based largely on my experiences with officers that I have dealt with, as I too am planning on becoming an officer. Best of luck to you. HOOAH!
