Why the tires of aircraft made conducting & not insulating?

Asked by GARIMA SRIVASTAVA | 14th Apr, 2011, 12:17: AM

Expert Answer:

When aircraft is moving on the runway its body gets charged due to air friction. This charge can cause sparking. Thus to ground this charge aircraft tyres are made of conducting rubber.
