USAF to study effects of noise exposure on health
There is a thing connected to aviation from its beginning. It’s the noise. In the early decades of the aviation development, when most of the airplanes were equipped with propeller engines, that was not a big deal but now, with many aircraft equipped with powerful jet engines, it is. That is the main reason the U.S. Air Force (USAF) is set to begin ...

Chińskie czy Tajwańskie Siły Powietrzne?
Wielki boom ekonomiczny na przełomie XX i XXI w., znacznie przyspieszył tak ilościowy jak i jakościowy rozwój chińskich sił zbrojnych – w tym lotnictwa.

According to the statement of the USMC (United States Marine Corps) head of Aviation Lt. Gen. Jon Davis , the F-35B is “ready to go right now” if it is needed to fly combat missions. Despite fact that F-35B is still being tested.

Lt. Gen. Jon Davis, deputy commandant for USMC aviation said, that Marines F-35B could be deployed even now to fight ISIS: “We’re ready to do that.” He also stated: “If we think we need to do that, we will”.

The Marine Corps’ first F-35B squadron is expected to arrive in Japan in January and then go to sea with the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit in the spring of 2018. The service’s second F-35B squadron is expected to go to sea in the summer of 2018.

In testing, the F-35B has proved to be “phenomenally successful,” showing that it can easily destroy the most advanced enemy aircraft defenses and fighters, Davis said. In fact, F-35B pilots made a demonstration of the aircraft’s capabilities last month more challenging than Davis had asked for because they did not feel it was difficult enough, he said.

All versions of The F-35 JSF, together with F-22 Raptor, various types drones and other sophisticated aircraft and equipment, will give the U.S. and its Allies strategic advantage in the air during incoming decades.
