These systems used a vegetable oil-based hydraulic fluid. As aircraft design produced larger and faster aircraft, greater use of hydraulics was necessary.</p> <p>These advances led to development of petroleum-based hydraulic fluids such as Mil-O-3580 and, later, Mil-H-5606. Shortly after World War II, the growing number of aircraft hydraulic fluid fires drew the collective concern of the commercial aviation industry and the public.</p></div> <p><a href="http://aviationweek.com/improving-fleet-performance/skydrol-history-aircraft-hydraulics" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://aviationweek.com/improving-fleet-performance/skydrol-history-aircraft-hydraulics#comments Improving Fleet Performance Tue, 11 Oct 2016 21:54:00 +0000 1523811 at http://aviationweek.com EASTMAN The Evolution Of Aviation Oil Chemistry - What You Need To Know http://aviationweek.com/improving-fleet-performance/evolution-aviation-oil-chemistry-what-you-need-know <div class="field-byline"> Eastman Aviation Solutions </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Like next-generation engines, the chemistry of oils used in them is changing to keep pace with more demanding operational environments.</div> <p><a href="http://aviationweek.com/improving-fleet-performance/evolution-aviation-oil-chemistry-what-you-need-know" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://aviationweek.com/improving-fleet-performance/evolution-aviation-oil-chemistry-what-you-need-know#comments Improving Fleet Performance Mon, 10 Oct 2016 21:56:00 +0000 1523311 at http://aviationweek.com EASTMAN Can Engine Oil Performance Have An Effect On Engine Coking Issues? http://aviationweek.com/improving-fleet-performance/can-engine-oil-performance-have-effect-engine-coking-issues <div class="field-byline"> Eastman Aviation Solutions </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Eastman Aviation Solutions participated in a case study with Juneyao Airlines of Shanghai to test the benefits of oil performance in reducing engine coking.</div> <p><a href="http://aviationweek.com/improving-fleet-performance/can-engine-oil-performance-have-effect-engine-coking-issues" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://aviationweek.com/improving-fleet-performance/can-engine-oil-performance-have-effect-engine-coking-issues#comments Improving Fleet Performance Mon, 10 Oct 2016 21:56:00 +0000 1523301 at http://aviationweek.com EASTMAN
