This activity involves pointing at target objects by stretching your arm and stating out loud, “Such and such is OK” at important points in the work in order to proceed with work safely and correctly.
long-term–low-level (LTLL) contamination, such as that to which aircrew are exposed, has been shown to be more injurious than short-term acute exposure. Aircrew breathe
the low-level toxicity every minute of their working days. When an aircraft lands the passengers disembark, but the crew turn around and do it all over again, time and time again. Perhaps there has too much emphasis on fume events, while the real damage is being done by LTLL.
The flyDubai B-737 attempted takeoff without clearance while a Russian Aeroflot A330 was crossing the runway. Euro Control has introduced Runway Status Lights being used at Paris airport, which is a safety barrier for such incidents.
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.
Triage after an accident determines the time, treater & treater requirement of the victim. Is it beneficial to create a triage or simply rush the accident victims to any hospital available?
Crew flying an aircraft with multiple failures would be reluctant to carry out a go-around. The human factor.
At 1000ft where the crew has to take a decision, what if the default mode is to call for a go-around and if parameters meet the safe criteria, the crew continue to land? Will this be a safer option than the current method which is the reverse of this?
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.
In the past decade we have witnessed the events involving the B-737 Max, A-320 NEO PW1100 engines and the B-787 battery fires. There have been numerous other minor incidents in the industry too. Every industry faces the challenges of change management. It can be due to introducing a new product or enhancing an existing product. […]
