Business aviation is one of America’s most important yet least understood industries. Most organizations (about 85%) operating business aircraft are small and medium-size enterprises. They include a wide range of organizations: state governments, universities, charitable organizations, and all types of businesses. While the organizations that rely on business aviation are varied, they all have one thing in common: the need for fast, flexible, safe, and secure access to destinations worldwide. Many small U.S. businesses rely on business aviation. They are located in markets where the airlines have reduced or eliminated service, making business aviation an important connection to the rest of the world. Business aviation fosters efficiency and productivity, and is essential in an intensely competitive global marketplace. This textbook, Practical Applications in Business Aviation Management, systematically examines business aviation and provides you with a complete understanding of one of America’s most dynamic industries. In this comprehensive guide to business aviation management, authors James R. Cannon and Franklin D. Richey provide in-depth and useful information on all aspects of managing a corporate aviation program. The book begins with a brief look at the history of business aviation and its important role in the aviation industry. It then moves on to focus on the practical issues facing all corporate aviation programs, such as: Regulatory compliance Administrative issues Aircraft and facility maintenance Finances and budgeting Aircraft selection and acquisition Standard operating procedures International operations Human resource management Training Communication and teambuilding Safety and security And much more The book also includes a foreword by Ed Bolen, the President and CEO of the National Business Aviation Association.

This book represents the Flight Operations Manual for a reusable microsatellite platform – the “Future Low-cost Platform” (FLP), developed at the University of Stuttgart, Germany. It provides a basic insight on the onboard software functions, the core data handling system and on the power, communications, attitude control and thermal subsystem of the platform. Onboard failure detection, isolation and recovery functions are treated in detail. The platform is suited for satellites in the 50-150 kg class and is baseline of the microsatellite “Flying Laptop” from the University. The book covers the essential information for ground operators to controls an FLP-based satellite applying international command and control standards (CCSDS and ECSS PUS). Furthermore it provides an overview on the Flight Control Center in Stuttgart and on the link to the German Space Agency DLR Ground Station which is used for early mission phases. Flight procedure and mission planning chapters complement the book.

Am 15. Januar 2009 startet der Inlandsflug 1549 in New York. In einer Höhe von etwa 1000 Metern – die Maschine befindet sich gerade über der Bronx – kollidiert ein Schwarm Wildgänse mit dem Airbus, an Bord sind 150 Passagiere und fünf Besatzungsmitglieder. Kapitän Sullenberger meldet Schubverlust in beiden Triebwerken und entscheidet sich wegen der geringen Flughöhe für eine hochriskante Notwasserung. Nur sechs dramatische Minuten nach dem Start trifft die Maschine im Gleitflug auf dem Hudson auf, rund anderthalb Kilometer vom Times Square entfernt. Rettungskräften gelingt die Evakuierung der Passagiere. Die Bilder von der spektakulären Landung und Rettungsaktion gehen bald um die Welt. Chesley Sullenberger, der sich eher ungern als »Der Held vom Hudson« tituliert sah, blickt nun auf sein Leben zurück und beschreibt, wie er zu dem Ausnahmepiloten wurde, der in schwierigster Notsituation Augenmaß und Entschlusskraft bewahrt und der Verantwortung für die ihm anvertrauten Mitmenschen gerecht wird. Er berichtet von seiner Kindheit in Texas, wie er bereits im Alter von fünf Jahren den Traum hegte, Pilot zu werden, und bereits mit sechzehn seinen ersten Soloflug bestritt; er erzählt von den prägenden Jahren bei der Air Force und seinen Erlebnissen als Flugkapitän, seit er 1980 zur zivilen Luftfahrt wechselte. Sullenberger ist überzeugt, dass seine gesammelten Lebenserfahrungen ihn auf die dramatischen Augenblicke, die sein Leben radikal verändern sollten und die er minutiös und mitreißend schildert, vorbereitet haben, als er sich – entgegen der Anweisung aus dem Flughafentower – für die Landung im Hudson entschied. Hier, so der Kapitän, konnte er auf all das an Einsichten und Tugenden zurückgreifen, was er nicht nur in seinem Beruf, sondern für sein gesamtes Leben als unerlässlich ansieht: Disziplin und Pflichtgefühl, Genauigkeit und Sorgfalt, Verantwortungsgefühl und Vertrauen, aber auch den Mut, notfalls im Alleingang eine Entscheidung zu treffen.
