Another presentation for the Science and Technology Division during ATA:s 53:rd Annual Conference will be given by Nicholas Hartmann, a German, French and Italian into English translator. Here is a short introduction of the presentation.
Most of us who are planning to attend the 2012 ATA Conference will arrive in San Diego on a commercial airplane. To find out more about the technology that has made air travel an everyday reality, and to learn why and how an airplane stays up in the air and gets you where you’re going, come to a presentation entitled “An Introduction to Aviation and Air Travel” (ST-4), tentatively scheduled for Friday, October 26, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. This extensively illustrated session will be given in English, and is intended to explain basic concepts and terminology relating especially to the atmosphere, the nature of powered flight, aircraft design and construction, propulsion, and airport operations.
