Safety Culture is the way people manage safety. Do you have the right people, sincere, flexible and learners
The Runway Overrun Protection System (ROPS) is designed to alert the flight crew in the case of potential runway overrun situation. The overrun warning (ROW) function automatically arms at 400ft AGL and works until start of braking. The Runway overrun protection (ROP) works from start of braking until the aircraft stops. The surprising part is […]
We have read about the Sharjah incident where the crew took off from the shorter end of the runway. The Captain realised the mistake, gave maximum thrust and selected a higher flap setting. Managed to get airborne safely and an accident was averted. In 2019-20 there have been two incidents in the U.K. where the […]
Poor braking action by the aircraft during the 1st stage of deceleration proved very costly. Was it due to the runway surface which holds water and has a smooth finish? Matters which were not investigated.
An unexpected wind shear warning. The crew had disconnected the auto pilot on final approach at Orly. Thereafter no one flew the aircraft for a few tense moments.
Is it safety to takeoff if there is a layer of marked temperature inversion? There are a number of factors that affect the performance.
The Aircraft Accident Investigation Bureau has failed in its primary duty that of securing the accident site
Hydroplaning will always occur when operating on a wet or flooded runway. Depending on different factors braking performance can change.
In poor-performing work cultures, the low trust often masquerades as bureaucracy, dysfunction, inefficiency, turnover or disengagement.
Human factors in accidents play a critical role in attempt to understand why the accident happened and what could the the crew be possibly thinking.
