The El Al B-789 managed to get airborne safely despite the 40 Tonne error in weight while calculating the takeoff performance.
I have written a paper on how and why humans commit such grave errors and ways and means to prevent them.
Two accidents where supposedly Boeing did not inform the pilots about important technical information affecting safety. Is it a Safety or Ethical issue.
All systems are composed of three basic elements: people; processes; and technology. While managing safety, all three elements have to work cohesively in order to produce the desired results. The cost of workplace injuries is staggering: employers pay as much as $1 billion per week in direct and indirect workers’ compensations costs. Indirect costs include training […]
The root cause of this event was the initial difficulty to control the aircraft laterally due to the rapid asymmetric thrust increase at low speed. We will analyse this phenomenon in the following paragraphs and explain how the pilots can ensure a symmetric thrust increases to ease the lateral control of the aircraft in the early takeoff roll.
Emergency evacuations are plagued by escape slide failures.
Inattentional blindness, Cognitive bias and poor crew training standards lead to the near world worst air disaster.
How could two pilots execute an approach on the taxiway with 4 aircrafts with almost 1000 passengers in it. They missed the collision by 60 feet.
ET 302 took off from Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia on 10th March 2019 and 06 minutes into the flight met with an accident. The aircraft was the Boeing’s latest addition to the B-737 series, the B-737 8Max. The infamous MCAS(software) was to have played a role in the accident and nations all over […]
All aircraft, engines, and propellers must meet and maintain minimum standards for design, material, construction, quality of work and performance before they can be produced and operated. The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) requires each contracting state to adopt airworthiness standards for the design and performance of aeronautical products. States must ensure that aircraft, including […]
The Ethiopian Airlines accident on 10th March 2019 was the 2nd B-737 Max accident in 4 months. This created a public outcry about the safety of Boeing 737 around the world and given the fact that Boeing had not been forthcoming in its disclosure of the new software, MCAS.All countries flying the B-737 had to […]
In my opinion the primary cause of the ET302 accident lies in the take off roll , the final nose dive could have been caused due to structural failure of the elevator and in an extremely improbable case, the infamous MCAS would have had a role to play. All aircrafts are loaded with passengers, cargo […]
