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 […]
Wasps and other foreign objects blocking the Pitot Probes have caused aircraft accident, compromised aviation safety. The aircraft instruments that are affected in most of the events are related to air speed which is vital for takeoffs. The cognitive load of the crew increases since there is a need for analysis at critical stages of […]
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 […]
If I don’t link my action or instrument readouts to consequences, how will I perceive risk &avoid them?
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.
Air India Express flight IX-611,a Boeing 737-800, VT-AYD 11th Oct 2018 suffered an accident soon after getting airborne. During takeoff roll, the Captain’s seat recline lock failed and the seat reclined. This resulted in an inadvertent action on the throttles pulling them back inadvertently. The thrust reduced from 98% N1 to 77% N1 and the […]
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.
Human brain will shrinks if not used optimally for prolonged periods. Will automation reliance affect our brain size?
