Acknowledgement I take this opportunity to thank my faculty kalpana maam for giving me such an opportunity of doing an assignment in aviation. This subject actually gave me a clear picture of the aviation industry. Her suggestions in doing this assignment was really helpful..
This assignment gives a good picture of aviation industry. It deals with various aspects of the industry as a whole. By doing this assignment I understood many factors that affect the growth of aviation industry. It covers different fields of aviation like low cost carriers, domestic airlines, economy status, different features of airbuses etc.
FACTORS AFFECTING THE DEVELOPMENT OF AVIATION INDUSTRY
Radio beacon- A radio device on board to give out emergency signals on particular frequencies in case of an emergency with no contact with outside world. Found in the bins as well as in the slide/rafts.
First aid kit- Kits used in minor cases of injury or an emergency. Contain general items for treatment & can be administered by crew.
Emergency exits- In case of an emergency these exits can be used to get out of the aircraft if the doors are not opened properly. Every door in an aircraft is an emergency exit.
Slide/rafts- in case of ditching or other emergency the slide inside the door inflates automatically to allow the passengers to slide down and use it as a raft in case of ditching and move away to safety. These were not present in A300 or A320.
Brace position – This is the position a passenger should adopt, should the aircraft have to make an emergency landing. if there is time before the aircraft ‘touches down’ the crew should try and ensure that all passengers have adopted this position.

In my assignment I’ve tried to present various aspects of the aviation industry. For doing this assignment I’ve tried to collect maximum data available about this industry. This assignment deals with the present scenario in aviation industry. According to my view although the industry was facing a fall last year, it is currently gearing up. Due to the great depression in 2008 in world economy the aviation industry also strived hard to sustain. But due to the remedial measures it got, the industry has come back on its full strength when compared to any other industry. Aviation industry is booming up to regain all its past fruitfulness..
