Under those conditions, it is possible to achieve a saving of 93 Kg 3 1,152 5 107,136 Kg of fuel on a single aircraft per annum. 15 The potential fuel saving is therefore more than 51,000,000 Kg of fuel (or US$51million)—all from a simple procedural solution. aspx. The Jet Fuel price is highly volatile (no pun intended); however, in early 2014, an average figure of about US$1,000 per metric tonne is reasonable, translating to approximately US$1/Kg. com/channels/Corporate-Fact-Sheet/pages/corporate-fact-sheet#fleet.

As the aircraft gains altitude, the flaps are retracted so that the aircraft can cruise at a higher speed. Like most engineering problems, however, there is a trade-off. Lowered flaps for takeoff achieves the desired goal of increased lift, but also means an increase in drag, which slows down the aircraft and requires more engine power to achieve takeoff speed. Finding the optimal combination of flap setting, drag, speed, engine power, and fuel consumption is a nontrivial problem with ample scope for finding solutions that favor low fuel consumption ahead of other factors.

In other words, the myth is making the point that sometimes the old, routine solution is perfectly satisfactory. 5 illustrates the six pathways through our problem-solving process. If the primary driver is change, the following pathways can be traced: 1. , an invention or discovery, creates a new, previously unrecognized, need. This is sometimes referred to as technology push, or a supply-side problem. 2 This type of problem driver also helps to explain why developing nations, for example, do not simply adopt old technologies as the solution to their needs.
