Mark Adonis, the new Athlone police station commander. “Gaining the trust of the community is one of the first things I would like to work on.” Those were the words of Colonel Mark Adonis, the newly appointed Athlone police station commander.Colonel Adonis previously worked as lieutenant colonel at Cloetesville police station in Stellenbosch for three years.He said becoming a station commander was a dream come true because he always wanted to work with the community and make a difference, especially in the environment in which he was raised. Colonel Adonis grew up in Paarl East, in an area known as Chicago, with his parents and three siblings. He said the area was known for gang shootings and this encouraged him to follow his dream of becoming a police officer.“We are here to learn from each other. While I have an open door policy, we want to teach the community about access control because they cannot just walk in, there are processes that must be followed. We must also work closely with the Community Police Forum (CPF) because they are the middleman between the community and the police. They are there to build relationships, identify problems, and find joint solutions,” said Colonel Adonis.He said while every station had its challenges, together with his team they would try to find solutions.“The environment I came from, Cloetesville, is a gang area so I am more than ready to take on this position. I always tell my station members that they are the best and this station is the best. They are open with me and they have welcomed me here,” he said.Colonel Adonis believes earning the trust of the community is challenging and important. He said that part of his plan is to attend community meetings and visit schools in the area. He wants to get involved in the community and encourages them to get to know him.“If we work together we can make a difference. We cannot work alone because we are from the community, for the community,” he said.He also said that Athlone police station is ready for the upcoming festive season. He said that the members have planned for this, and there will be an increase in police visibility such as foot patrols in the malls every Friday morning. He said while they will use their own resources, if there’s a need for more police officers, they will be supported by the cluster office.“We will paint the City blue over the festive season. Our message to the community is that we won’t put up with drug houses and shebeens. Those are the major contributors to crime. The community must also be patient and give us time. There are phases in which these processes will happen but if I can gain the trust of the community it will be so much easier,” Colonel Adonis said.

However rail’s market share had stagnated in favour of road, and the sector needs to meet changing requirements for faster, cheaper and more user-friendly freight services including door-to-door intermodal operations.#*#*Show Fullscreen*#*# The 2030 railway strategy prioritises projects that are economically viable, that facilitate cross border freight and encourage private-sector participation, and that emphasise environmental performance and increasing safety and security.Although infrastructure and operations in the region had improved in the past two decades, CAREC reported that cross-border trade and transport still suffered from underfunding of infrastructure, inefficient maintenance and cumbersome cross-border procedures, all of which it hopes to address by promoting good practice.

Ilustrasi pesawat terbang dalam kondisi panas ekstrem. Foto: telegraph.co.uk Kecelakaan memang tak bisa dihindari dari setiap penerbangan pesawat. Teranyar, Boeing 737 MAX terpaksa di-grounded besar-besaran di seluruh dunia menyusul dua kecelakaan Lion Air dan Ethiopian Airlines hanya dalam tempo lima bulan.Baca juga: Mungkinkah Seluruh Penerbangan Di Masa Mendatang Gunakan Pesawat Listrik?Kendati demikian, terlepas dari suratan takdir pada dua kecelakaan tersebut, sebelum benar-benar terbang mengangkut penumpang, pesawat terlebih dahulu melewati serangkaian tes ekstrem dan inovasi teknologi untuk menjamin keselamatan dan keamanan terbang. Banyak hal, mulai dari menguji fleksibilitas sayap, ingestion, tes temperature, ketinggian, kecepatan minimum untuk lepas landas, mesin, test crash, dan uji rem. Selain itu, pesawat juga diuji untuk kasus-kasus darurat, seperti ketika tersambar petir dan minimnya bahan bakar. Dilansir bbc.com, berikut lima rangkain tes ekstrem dan inovasi teknologi pada pesawat sebelum mulai beroperasi.1. Bending wingsSecara garis besarnya sayap pesawat terbang terdiri dari beberapa bagian utama dan bagian kecil yang dirakit secara terpadu untuk mendapat kekuatan yang tinggi. Kekuatan yang tinggi tersebut untuk menahan gaya- gaya yang bekerja ketika sayap sedang terbang dan landing yakni gaya “bending stress”. Berbagai inovasi pun terus dilakukan terkait kemampuan dan fungsi sayap dalam mendukung keselamatan dan keamanan penerbangan dalam segala kondisi.2. Tes Bird StrikeBurung besi (pesawat terbang) meskipun berukuran jauh lebih besar dan jauh lebih berat, kurang lebih berbobot 40.000 kg, kerap dibuat repot dengan kawanan burung berbobot hanya 2 kg. Salah satu pelopor penerbangan, Cal Rodgers, adalah orang pertama yang mati karena bird strike.Pada tahun 1912, pesawatnya bertabrakan dengan burung camar di Long Beach, California yang menyebabkan masalah besar pada pesawatnya. Pesawat Rodgers jatuh dan ia pun tenggelam. Dalam catatan International Bird Strike Committee, sekitar $1,2 miliar digelontorkan maskapai untuk diperbaiki setiap tahun akibat bird strike.Selain itu, untuk menemukan formula yang tepat agar mesin tetap dalam keadaan prima saat terjadi bird strike, sejumlah tes pun dilakukan. Tak terhitung berapa banyak burung mati yang dilemparkan ke dalam mesin. Tak hanya itu, simulasi serangan bird strike dari arah depan juga dilakukan. Hal itu guna mengurangi potensi bahaya dengan kerusakan pada jendela pesawat akibat bird strike.3. Tes Panas dan DinginPesawat mengudara di hampir seluruh kondisi, panas dan dingin ekstrem. Maka dari itu, memastikan mesin, sistem, dan sejumlah komponen bekerja dengan baik di suhu ekstrem, produsen pesawat pun melakukan ‘hot and cold tests’ untuk menguji pesawat terbang dalam kondisi panas dan beku.Airbus A350 XWB terbaru, misalnya, untuk memeriksa seluruh komponen dalam suhu beku, para insinyur pun membawa ke Iqaluit, ibukota wilayah Nunavut di Arktik, Kanada. Pesawat tersebut menjalani tes di sana selama seminggu dan membiarkan pesawat dilahap dinginnya iklim Arktik dan kembali menyalakannya setelah sekian lama didiami. Selain itu, pesawat juga menjalani tes pengereman di kondisi landasan bersalju mana kala tiba-tiba pesawat memutuskan tak jadi lepas landas setelah memacu kecepatan penuh di runway.Selanjuntnya, pesawat juga menghabiskan waktu sekitar seminggu untuk melakukan tes serupa di ketinggian, seperti di Cochabamba dan La Paz (Bolivia), Addis Ababa (Ethiopia), dan lainnya. La Paz adalah salah satu bandara tertinggi di dunia dengan ketinggian 13.300 kaki (4 km) di atas permukaan laut, dan Cochabamba berada di ketinggian sekitar 8.300 kaki (2,5 km).4. Virtual plane: Iron BirdSalah satu cara paling mutakhir untuk menguji pesawat modern adalah menguji sistemnya secara digital. Bombardier, misalnya, telah membangun fasilitas pengujian yang disebut “Aircraft Zero” atau fasilitas pengujian lengkap dengan sistem terpadu I Montreal, Kanada.Baca juga: Inilah Enam Teknologi Terdepan untuk Tingkatkan Efisiensi Bahan Bakar PesawatFasilitas ini memungkinkan model pengujian setara penerbangan ‘nyata’ dengan menghadirkan seluruh segmen penerbangan, seperti lepas landas dan landing. Teknologi itu disebut “Iron-birds”. Banyak hal yang bisa diambil dari tes tersebut, mulai dari mencari keretakan pada pesawat hingga tes USG untuk mencari kecatatan lainnya pada pesawat.5. Tes PetirSelain bird strike, pesawat juga kerap mendapat ancaman dari serangan kilat atau petir. Oleh karenanya, sebelum benar-benar mengangkut penumpang, beragam tes simulasi petir pun dilakukan di berbagai fasilitas pengujian, salah satunya di Cardiff, Inggris.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedMau Gusur Airbus dan Boeing, Perusahaan Amerika Bikin Pesawat Listrik untuk Kurangi Pemanasan Global10/02/2020In “Destinasi Udara”Harbour Air Uji Coba Pesawat Terbang Listrik Selama Lima Menit18/12/2019In “Featured”Terungkap, Boeing 747 Masih Gunakan Floppy Disket untuk Simpan Database Penerbangan, Tiap 28 Hari Diganti13/08/2020In “Analisa Angkutan”
