A collection of artwork, projects, articles and video relating to ATPL.
Helicopter silhouette 🚨
3D content creation is endlessly fun.
The Cloud Book: How to Understand the Skies
Picked up this handy paperback packed with plenty of stunning cloud information and insight.
Head in the clouds
Creating a volumetric cloud visualisation using realtime fluid simulation tool EmberGen.
Working on a new iOS app
A whole new immersive learning experience is coming soon.
Really impressed with Blender's Eevee motion blur on M1 🚁
I have been testing Blender's Eevee renderer on a first generation M1 Mac.
Spiral bevel gears
An animation showing how a pair of spiral bevel gears interact using gearing similar to that found in the Airbus H125 helicopter transmission gearbox.
Interference effects can be observed with all types of waves, including, light, radio, acoustic, surface waves and more.
Visualising cloud coverage
This NASA satellite observation map shows how much of Earth's surface is covered by clouds for a given month.
Visualising land surface temperature
Highlighting the average temperature of land, during the daytime in November.
Flight paths and great circles
The route is first projected onto a two-dimensional map before animating to the three-dimensional shape of a globe.
A virtual tour of Zürich Airport
Experience the three runways of Zürich Airport in this 3D virtual tour. Featuring terminals, taxiways and more details.
Airports around the world
View the location of more than 7,000 airports spanning the globe.
Flight routes and waypoint references visualised
Aircraft navigate the skies along routes of waypoints and beacons. Waypoints indicate a change in direction, speed, or altitude along the desired path.
Innsbruck airport approach
The runway at Innsbruck is at an elevation of 581 metres and the final approach must be made through a narrow valley with terrain on either side.
Airspace above the United Kingdom
Across the world airspace is divided into three dimensional blocks. This view shows airspace blocks over an area of the United Kingdom.
Airflow around an aircraft wingtip
Visualising the aerodynamic effects of airflow at an aircraft's wingtip. Vortices are circular patterns of rotating air left behind a wing as it generates lift.
Pressure around an aircraft wing
CFD visualisation to show the pressure distribution around an aircraft wing. The curved shape creates lift by forcing air to move faster over the top of a wing.
Cross section of pressure around a wing
Rendering the volume of air that is affected by an aerofoil surface. Low pressure areas, responsible for creating lift, are shown in blue.
