Commercial aviation is the part of civil aviation both general aviation and scheduled airline services that involves operating aircraft for hire to transport passengers or multiple loads of cargo. Harry Bruno and Juan Trippe were early promoters of commercial aviation. The Air Commerce Act of began to regularize commercial aviation by establishing standards, facilitation, and promotion. MacCracken Jr. To promote commercial aviation, he told town fathers that "Communities without airports would be communities without airmail.
The Jet Age is a period in the history of aviation defined by the advent of aircraft powered by turbine engines, and by the social change this brought about. Since large jetliners could also carry more passengers than piston-powered airliners, air fares also declined relative to inflation , so people from a greater range of socioeconomic classes could afford to travel outside their own countries. Besides the pure jet, the turbine driven propeller engines offered improvements of the piston engine delivering a smoother ride and better fuel efficiency. One exception to jet-powered domination by large airliners was the contra-rotating propellers turboprop design that powered the Tu first flight This airliner was able to match or even exceed the speed, capacity and range of contemporary jets; however, the use of such powerplants in large airframes was totally restricted to the military after The introduction of the Concorde supersonic transport SST airliner to regular service in was expected to bring similar social changes, but the aircraft never found commercial success.

In: Science. For example, the pelt on wheel has been used to make flour. Further more, the impulse turbine is still used in the first and sometimes in the second stages of steam turbine. Firemen make use of the kinetic energy stored in a jet to deliver water above the level in the nozzle to extinguish fires in high-rise buildings.
