Leif Gram: Mr. Fix

express.co.uk -- Airline pilot Patrick Smith revealed the truth behind the phenomenon, saying that turbulence should never concern fliers.
“In all honesty, passengers should never worry about turbulence,” he told Express.co.uk.
“The aircraft is designed to take the stress and strain of turbulence. For example, it’s like designing a car with good enough suspension to drive over a rough surface road with potholes.” In the book, Mr Smith explained: “A plane cannot be flipped upside down, thrown into a tailspin or otherwise flung from the sky by even the mightiest gust or air pocket.

Что, даже в грозу?
I also always thought planes were designed for that. At takeoff or landing it can be dangerous though.
For what? Mightiest gust оторвет самолету крылья, иначе бы летали через грозы и не заморачивались.
Mightiest gust will not tear the wings off. The wings can hold the weight of the whole plane times 1.5. I've seen some testing videos, pretty impressive. I think there are two reasons they don't do it: (1) a lightning strike can damage electronics, (2) turbulence will smash passengers inside against the ceiling. Even if they have seat belts on you don't want laptops flying around.
Мне кажется, у самолета есть максимальная воздушная скорость, при превышении которой он развалится на части.
I suspect it is a lot faster than any gust of wind. If it is going slowly, it can lose lift though. That's why planes take off against the wind, I think.
Воздушная скорость увеличивается до произвольных значений, когда самолет летит носом вниз. Удерживать самолет в некотором конкретном положении, чтобы этого избежать, в урагане может быть затруднительно.
I think once it gets going, the speed of the plane is so much higher than the wind speed, even in a storm, that control surfaces work well enough. There is no way the wind can make a plane dive nose down.
