If you want to enjoy a family friendly hobby with your children you might want to start flying electric rc airplanes. It is a wonderful hobby that an entire family can enjoy together that involves plenty of bonding time and all sorts of fresh air. A family that flies electric rc airplanes together can travel all over the country to meet with different flying clubs and enjoy the group activities that these types of clubs put on throughout the year.

Flying an electric remote control airplane is just the same as a traditional remote control plane. The only difference is that an electric planes battery is charged by electricity instead of by gasoline. The electricity charges up the battery pack so that when a family is ready to go flying their aircraft is fully charged and ready to go.

Electric rc planes can be flown by both children and adults. Children usually have to be supervised by an adult and in some locations children have to be of a reasonable age in order to handle the aircraft safely. Just because they are able to manipulate the controls does not mean that they have the mental wherewithal to control it safely and effectively in the air. By having an adult supervise them they not only are able to learn from watching but they are able to take turns controlling it on their own.

Quite often different remote control flying clubs have meets and tournaments all across the country. Families and flying aficionados will travel for many hours just for the opportunity to take part in these tournaments and meet with other flying fans at the same time. It is a great bonding time and allows full families to connect with each other and converse over their favorite flying machines. Many families look forward to these meets each year so that they can reconnect with other families that they met on previous years to see how the children have grown and what types of new remote control planes have been purchased.

More times than not, a child that grows up in a family that enjoys electric rc airplanes turns out to be a flying buff as an adult too. It is a hobby that gets in the blood from a very young age and sticks with them even through to adulthood. Chances are that a love for flying will be passed on to their children also. It is a wonderful family friendly hobby that inspires children to dream and teaches them the importance of family and team building while enjoying the great outdoors at the same time.

Fear of Flying Can Be Caused By Many Untrue Myths!

The fear of flying affects many people throughout our world and it can be one of those things that is hard to overcome because there are so many parts to flying to be scared of! There’s the claustrophobia (especially in smaller planes with a bigger person next to you), fear of crashing, nervousness about freaking out on the plane, and the fact that the woman announces what you will be doing in the event of crash which is not something you really want to be thinking about while flying.

Fortunately many of these fears can be fixed as the fears stem from things that you have heard or seen on TV. Once you understand the truth to these occurrences your fear may lesson or disappear completely – I know mine did!

One huge fear of flying is extremely popular. The fear that turbulence equals doom! This is shared by so many people who fly. The truth is planes are built to go through some turbulence. If they weren’t then there would be no flying – ever. In fact, they can go through a hefty amount of turbulence without falling apart at the seams. The plane is built to fly which means it can handle the turbulence that comes its way. The best way to look at turbulence is as something that forces you to wake up and put your seatbelt on and causes some discomfort.

Air pockets have been said to force a plane to drop hundreds of feet in the air, but the truth is that won’t happen. First of all it will be hard to find a place in the sky without air. I mean really, have you ever heard of such a thing? If that was the case then we would hear about it quite often in the news and experience it ourselves when we accidently walked into a pocket that had no air!

And thanks to many movies and TV shows there is a myth that you can fall straight down if the engines on the plane gives out. But this simply won’t happen. A plane is meant to glide like a bird. Birds do not go straight down if they stop flapping! They glide.

If your engines go out then you will glide out of cruise altitude and make your decent somewhat like a gliding bird. You won’t just drop from the sky. And many pilots do land planes without the engines on when they are trying to save fuel. So you can be assured that pilots know what they are doing and how to land safely if they have to.

Those are just a few of the common fears of flying that come from the TV or just gossip in general, but now you know that they really are not to be feared but to be viewed as ‘things planes can do’. The more you learn about planes and how they operate the less afraid you will be.

Rifle Sites The Basics for Beginners 101

Rifle sights have greatly developed over the last several decades. There are basically 3 kinds, or generations, of sights used on rifles for focusing on your target.

The first of the three basic rifles sites is the open site. This has two focal points mounted on the rifle. The first is mounted close to the muzzle of the rifle and the second is mounted along the first third of the rifle. This open sight then requires the shooter to line up three focal planes with your target being the third focal point. Therefore the shooter needs to look down the barrel of the rifle, lining up all three focal points to get an accurate shot. As you can imagine this is not the simplest task and requires a lot of skill and training. The ability to perform this type of focus on your target gets more difficult as ones age affects their eye site.

The second basic type of rifle sight is called the Aperture. This type uses a “peep sight” also known as a “rear sight” mounted to the rear of the barrel of the rifle. This reduces the focal plane to just two focal points rather than the three above. This is made possible as you look through the rear aperture, not at it, down the barrel of the rifle to your second focal point being your target. With some practice, this aperture can bring increased speed, accuracy and efficiency to your shooting.

The third basic type of rifle sight is the telescopic sight. This “scope” greatly reduces the eyes work as you look through the scope to focus only on one focal point being your target. As you can imagine, this scope will even further increase the efficiency and accuracy of your shot over the previous two types of sights described above. Just a few decades ago it was believed that the down side to telescopic sites was that they were not reliable or rugged enough. It is true that generations ago “scopes” did not stand up well to weather conditions as the clarity was affected. They did not stand up well to much impact of a rough terrain or to the snagging of getting caught up in thick bush.

These down sides of years ago are no longer true. Scopes have become just as sturdy, if not even more so, as the aperture peep sites. Modern scopes are dependable tools that can withstand knocks and snagging and can be trusted to maintain their accuracy or to remain in “zero”. A well-made, simple, rear scope mounted on a quarter rib or sturdy steel base is virtually indestructible. With these new generation scopes or “optics”, there is greater chance of something going awry with your rifle than with the scope.

Facts About Sakkara Necropolis in Giza, Egypt

The site of Saqqara is the central portion of the Memphis necropolis which stretches for more than 30 kilometers. The moment your van will turn onto the road that led to Sakkara, you will feel as traveling back in time.

At Saqqara, the oldest complete stone building complex in history was built: Djoser’s step pyramid, which is not as impressive as the ones at Giza, but it is much older And partially covered to ongoing renovations. It was built for King Djoser of the 3rd Dynasty by the architect and genius Imhotep and high officials added private funeral monuments to this necropolis.

The Step pyramid is an archaeological remain in the Saqqara necropolis. The Step Pyramid was built for the 2nd king of Egypt’s 3rd Dynasty, Kind Djoser, and is considered to be the foundation on which all later pyramids were based upon. The pyramid was built by a genius architect of the time who based the theory of the pyramid on the more traditional ancient Egyptian funerary chamber the “mastaba”.

This first Egyptian pyramid consisted of six mastabas (of decreasing size) built atop one another in what were clearly revisions and developments of the original plan. The Step pyramid complex is comprised of a series of sections creating the complex, much like later pyramids.

It also contains offering rooms and most of the other features that were often found in both earlier and later tombs. The Mortuary Temple is just north of the pyramid and is in total ruin. On the southern wall back across the Great Court from the pyramid are carved cobra heads or uraei. The cobra head is an often seen as a symbol in Egypt. It was once a symbol of the north. The Southern Tomb is located just outside of the southern wall. Steps lead up the wall to the other tombs and monuments outside the walls.

Traveling to Saqqara is popular from Sinai and Red Sea resorts , you may go individual or booking any of the group tours from your hotel if you stay in Cairo, Luxor or Aswan or from the resort if you are staying near the Red Sea or the Sinai Peninsula.

Air Ambulance Types

The air ambulance industry has existed for almost 100 years now and during that time the services have evolved. From medevac services offered only in the army, the air ambulance industry has grown to help anyone in need. There are several different types of air ambulance planes that can be used to help people in need. Whether it is an accident that requires immediate attention or a longer journey home, there is a right air ambulance for any need.

A helicopter air ambulance is the most common form of air ambulances. The helicopter is how the industry started. There is some debate on when the first helicopter was used to transport an injured person, however most people point to WWI as the beginning. Since then multiple companies have formed to help that use helicopter air ambulances. The helicopter is the most common air ambulance and used for the most immediate needs. Typically helicopters are called into use when there is a car accident that has to close a highway, for example. Helicopters can be used for shorter flights in remote areas as well, where rescue can be affected by terrain.

Fixed wing aircraft is another type of air ambulance that can be propeller or jet powered. At Travel Care this is our specialty service. Your medical needs and location will factor into which plane is used for your flight. Fixed wing or jet air ambulances are used for longer flights and both offer something different for patients in need. Travel Care offers both options. Our fixed wing plane, the Cessna 340 RAM VI is used most frequently for shorter flights.

For international flights or longer domestic flights, a jet powered air ambulance, like our LearJet is used. A jet powered air ambulance can fly at a higher altitude than a fixed-wing plane. It also needs to stop less for fuel. A jet-powered air ambulance is also likely larger, which means more medical equipment can be carried onto the flight. All of our planes are equipped with modern communications tools as well as medical equipment.

No matter what your needs our fleet of air ambulances are available anytime you need us. Whether domestically or internationally, Travel Care Air can help get you home no matter what your medical issues.
