ROMA SPOTTERS CLUB
spotters a FiumicinoRoma Spotters Club was created, in October 2009, by some spotters living in Rome and in the surrounding of the city. The main goal of the association is to share, promote and spread the exciting and unusual hobby of plane spotting. To be part of "Roma Spotters Club" means use, share and learn aeronautics and photographic culture, means also friendship and fun, means spending mornings and afternoons outdoor, means watching sunrise and sunset together. It means, above all, admiring aircrafts, which are definitely the best creations of physics and technology of the modern times. "Plane Spotting" is what “spotters” do: stay around airports looking for aircrafts landing, taking off or just taxiing and take pictures of them with their powerful cameras and lenses, always hoping to make a masterpiece, a perfect picture, or to take a shot of a rare aircraft. "Roma Spotters Club" works constantly to become the Roman point of reference for spotters coming from all over the world. In this website you can find information and guides about plane spotting in Rome Fiumicino airport. You can also take part at the periodical meetings organized by the club, inside and outside the airport fences.

TIPS
   
TURBOFAN
It is the most widely adopted civil aircraft propulsive system since 1950s. It is charactherized the by the presence of the front side big fan, which is clearly visible from outside. External airflow is driven inside the engine by the air intake, which is able to slow the flow speed aswell, and the sent throught the fan. Here the flow is slipt in core and bypass flow, which mass flow ratio is commonly known as bypass ratio. Bypass flow (cold flow) is simply carried in the bypass duct and then accelerated by the secondary flow nozzle. Core flow is first compressed in the compressor (typically multi-stage), then heated and burned in the combustion chamber where it increase both temperature and pressure. Some of the core flow energy is then extracted in the turbine, used to move the fan and compressor assembly, and the it is accelerated in the primary flow nozzle.
