The Wonders of Aircraft Tires

by Admin 27. September 2011

We know our pilots and equipment make it smooth, but in reality, the physics of a perfect airplane landing involve a lot of heat and force. It involves conditions that ordinary tires just can’t handle. That’s why airline tires are a step above the kinds you’d find in any other industry.

Although they move through the skies with ease, aircraft are heavy vehicles. Combined with the speed involved in a landing, aircraft are built to exert a lot of force on whatever is underneath them. That’s why aircraft tires are built with such a heavy duty design – they need to withstand the heavy load of a landing.

In addition, airplanes handle different road conditions (or landing strip conditions, to be precise) than a typical vehicle. Planes may need to deal with not only rain or snow, but crosswind conditions as well. Unique tread patterns on aircraft tires allow them to land in nearly any conditions.

We also mentioned the large amount of heat generated during a landing. This occurs when the tires come into contact with the runway and the plane begins deceleration. Aircraft tires use two design features to render this heat harmless. Firstly, aircraft tires are filled with pure nitrogen. Compared to oxygen, nitrogen hardly expands with heat and pressure changes (like when a plane ascends and descends). Because they are filled with nitrogen, the tires’ shape changes very little which allows for smoother landings. In fact, nitrogen has proven to be so effective in airline tires, other industries (such as auto racing) now fill their tires with nitrogen too.

However, unlike these other industries, aircraft tires do not blowout from friction generated heat. A specially designed heat fuse is installed in every tire. If the tire reaches a certain temperature, the heat fuse melts and expels nitrogen from the tire in a steady, controlled stream – allowing for a smooth and safe landing.

When you think about airplanes, you probable never think of tires. Yet, they are an important part of all aircraft that make every landing possible.

Miami Air International’s 20th Anniversary

by Admin 12. September 2011

Miami Air International is proud to announce our 20th anniversary in business. For two decades, we have provided a level of safety and service that has exceeded the expectations of our customers and made us the number one choice for leading corporations, professional entertainers, major sports organizations, world governments, and more.

Of course, we couldn’t have done it without our fleet of Boeing 737-800 and Boeing 737-400 aircraft. The versatility of these state-of-the-art aircraft allows us to customize flight experiences for each of our customers down to minute details – everything from seat arrangements, to menu and bar selections.

We are also well respected for the level of safety at our airline. We were among the first airlines to voluntarily implement a Safety Management System (SMS) and we will be at a one to one-and-a-half year advantage over other airlines when SMS implementation becomes mandatory. In addition, we are certified by the FAA under stringent Part 121 Flag regulations. We also regularly receive positive marks by independent aviation experts, and Miami Air International always offer a “100% reliability guarantee” to our customers.

Our customers enjoy an impeccable level of service from Miami Air. Whether its aircraft commitments up to two years in advance of flight date, access to preferred airports, planeside boarding, or expedited passenger screening, our customers’ safety and comfort always come first. By providing only the finest customized in-flight experiences, we look forward to flying for the next 20 years and beyond!

The Differences between the Boeing 737-400 and 737-800

by Admin 1. September 2011

The Miami Air International fleet is composed of two different types of aircraft. We have two Boeing 737-400s and seven 737-800s. Knowing the differences between these aircraft can help you make the best choice that will suit you and your travel party.

Our smaller aircraft, the Boeing 737-400, are all 100% 1st class. As such, they feature 68 plush leather seats with lustrous wood tables for club seating – allowing for a more casual and conversational atmosphere for your flight. They have DVD players, as well as 110 volt electrical outlets for your laptops, cell phones, or other entertainment devices. The 400s also allow for China meal service and other upscale amenities.

In terms of flight ability, the Boeing 737-400 has a flight range of 2,820 statute miles, or approximately five hours. The GE CFM engines boast superior fuel efficiency and reliability, but you will hardly hear them, as our 737-400 meets Stage 3 noise regulations – the quietest rating from the FAA.

The Boeing 737-800 is our larger aircraft, featuring up to 172 single class seats. If needed, the 737-800 can be modified into a 118 seat configuration, including 48 first class seats. An in-flight entertainment system, 31" - 33" reclining seat pitch in standard-class (44" for first-class), and other amenities guarantee a comfortable flight. Like the 737-400, our 800s also feature GE CFM engines and Stage 3 noise regulations. In addition, the size of the crafts increases their flight range to six hours – meaning they can fly non-stop to almost anywhere in continental North America. They also are equipped with self-contained air stairs for remote boarding options.

Those are some of the key differences between the planes in our fleet. However, no matter which aircraft you choose, you are guaranteed to have a comfortable and memorable flight with Miami Air International.
