Nearly 50% reported their medical specialty as family practice. Their average age was 59.4 years; the majority (52%) did not hold a pilot license, and 82% were male.

Drugs and Alcohol in Civil General Aviation Accident Pilot Fatalities 2004-2008

Jueves, 29 de septiembre de 2011 Estrella Forster Sin comentarios

The data for this study was from 1353 pilots who died from 2004 to 2008, most from general aviation accidents. The majority of the pilots held a third-class medical certicate. Drugs or medications were found from 42% of pilots tested, being Diphenhydramine (an H1 antihistimine with impairing properties) the most common. The FAA has taken steps to warn pilots of the dangers in using this medication that can be dispensed as both a prescription and over the counter. A 7% of pilots were found alcohol levels above FAA limit. Interesting thecnical report advisable for the AME’s -aviation medical examiners- who issue medical certicates for priveta pilots

The need to “NOTICE”

Martes, 27 de septiembre de 2011 Estrella Forster Sin comentarios

“There has been a great deal of discussion lately about organizational responsibility versus individual responsibility for aviation mishaps. Although the main body of research for the last 30 years has shown that aviation accidents mainly are organizational accidents, the role of the individual 鈥 the pilot, maintenance technician, dispatcher, etc. 鈥 cannot be discounted.聽Anyone seeking a simple answer to this question: organization vs individual is bound to be disapointed. We invite you to read last issue of AeroSafetyWorld- Sep 2011, specially following article that聽highlights “the need to notice hazards can evade identification when not clearly perceived”
