Cost Of Flight
- (in soccer, cricket, etc.) Deliver (a ball) with well-judged trajectory and pace
- an instance of traveling by air; "flying was still an exciting adventure for him"
- shoot a bird in flight
- Shoot (wildfowl) in flight
- be priced at; "These shoes cost $100"
- monetary value: the property of having material worth (often indicated by the amount of money something would bring if sold); "the fluctuating monetary value of gold and silver"; "he puts a high price on his services"; "he couldn't calculate the cost of the collection"
- (of an object or an action) Require the payment of (a specified sum of money) before it can be acquired or done
- Cause the loss of
- Involve (someone) in (an effort or unpleasant action)
- the total spent for goods or services including money and time and labor
Reducing Space Mission Cost is the first complete treatment of the technology, process, and problems in the most critical areas of modern spaceflight. The demand to reduce cost is unrelenting. This pioneering book addresses all aspects of this problem, including:
Technology and processes for reducing cost
Cost reduction in mission engineering, spacecraft design, manufacture, launch, and operations
Implementation methods and problems
The price of reducing cost
10 detailed case studies of what works in practice in:
Test and Applications missions
Beginning on the inside front cover, this book provides real cost data on a variety of missions, systems, and subsystems. According to the authors:
`Reducing mission cost is hard enough if you know what the real costs are, and virtually impossible if you don't.'
This book challenges traditional methods, yet recognizes that all space programs are run to minimize cost within the rules under which they are built and flown. It provides practical recipes for reducing cost in both new and ongoing missions and discusses what works, what government can do to help, and what methods intended to reduce cost may be counterproductive and unintentionally increase cost. As shown on the inside rear cover, the case studies described in the book have reduced total mission cost by 80% to more than 90% with respect to projections by traditional cost methods.
This book is a follow-on to the now standard text and reference, Space Mission Analysis and Design, also edited by Drs. Wertz and Larson. It is required reading for professionals, students, and managers in astronautics or space sciences and managers or scientists involved in space experiments. This book shows that reducing space mission cost, without reducing reliability, is as possible as it is important for the future of space exploration.
Queens Flight BAe142 ZE710
Queens Flight BAe142 ZE710, parked on stand 9 at Exeter International Airport overnight, 5th December 2010.
ZE701 was built in 1985, construction number 1029 LN:29
On 1 April 1995 The Queen's Flight was merged into No. 32 Squadron RAF to become No. 32 (The Royal) Squadron. Its BAe 146s and two Westland Wessex HCC.4 helicopters moved from Benson to 32 Squadron's base at RAF Northolt. This ended the RAF's provision of dedicated VIP transport aircraft; the aircraft of 32 Squadron are only available to VIP passengers if not needed for military operations. This was declared officially in 1999, with the Ministry of Defence stating "the principal purpose of 32 Squadron [is] to provide communications and logistical support to military operations; the Squadron's capacity should be based on military needs only; and any royal or other non-military use of... spare capacity is secondary to its military purpose." The effect of this declaration was to radically reduce the charge per hour to the royal travel grant-in-aid for flying in an RAF jet, because now only the variable costs of the flight were expensed to the royal travel budget. In the 2007/2008 fiscal year only 9% of the flying hours of the squadron were devoted to flying the Royal Family and their staff.
The Squadron also has six smaller British Aerospace BAe 125 CC3 jets, which seat a maximum of six passengers. The last of these jets was delivered in February 1984.
Flight departures board at TLV Terminal 3 showing flight to Kaliningrad
My mother grew up in East Prussia, the easternmost province of the German empire, bordering on Russia. The capital of East Prussia was Koenigsberg which after the Second World War was taken over by the Soviet Union and renamed Kaliningrad. It was a military area, off limits for all foreigners and many Russians. Now, only 18 years after the collapse of the Soviet Union, there are flights from Tel Aviv to Kaliningrad by the Russia low-cost airline KD Avia. Who would have believed it?

Increasing congestion at major hubs and the advantage to passengers of non-stop flights and faster journey times has intensified the debate on patterns of air service. At the same time the economics of highly focused networks has been challenged by the availability of very economic smaller capacity long-haul aircraft. The purpose of this research is to value the environmental costs of these two patterns of service: hub-to-hub and hub by-pass. Five long-haul markets were evaluated both on a hub to hub and hub by-pass basis. These involved both transatlantic and Europe/Asia flights. It was found that the noise and emissions social cost impact of the hub by-pass networks was significantly lower than the hub to hub in all cases. Differences in environmental costs per passenger depend on the concentration of population around the airports and the degree to which the hub routing involves extra mileage.
