This month, CallBack from NASA`s Aviation Safety Report System takes a look at how the urge to press on to ones`s destination, despite conditions that might otherwise discourage such a decision, can lead to risky behavior and undesirable consequences. Four pilots who let “ge¬ī-home-itis” cloud their thinking share valuable insights into avoiding this dangerous malady.

Verge of Consciusness (The threat of Hypoxia)

Viernes, 9 de diciembre de 2011 Jose María Pérez Sastre Sin comentarios

An improperly adjusted safety switch that rendered the aircraft’s pressurization system inoperative, an incorrectly wired cabin altitude warning switch that disabled a warning light and the pilot’s ineffective systems monitoring while distracted by an autopilot problem early in the flight were among the factors that led to a dangerous encounter with hypoxia, according to the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB). According to the safety report there is a continuing concern about hypoxia incidents especially in single- pilot, turbine-powered, pressurized aircraft.

The Pilot Diaspora

Lunes, 7 de noviembre de 2011 FSI / Curt Lewis Sin comentarios

This article published at last issue of Aerosafety Wordl October 2011 briefs the BALPA 2010 survey about pilot lifestyle. Of the many findings suggested by this research, some regarding to roster and economic factors contibuting to pilot commuting time and stress are worthwhile. More than 73% of respondents said they had felt unduly stressed at work. Over 30% took between 60 and 120 minutes to commute. The data suggest deterioration in relations betwwn pilot and manegement. Currently the pilot morale is low. Only 19% of them woulrl recommend a career in aviation to their offspring.

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 ‚ÄĒ the pilot, maintenance technician, dispatcher, etc. ‚ÄĒ cannot be discounted.¬†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¬†highlights “the need to notice hazards can evade identification when not clearly perceived”

Midair Collisions: “See and Avoid”

Miércoles, 21 de septiembre de 2011 Laura Duque Arrubla Sin comentarios

The number of midair collisions in the United States has averaged 30 per year since 1978, generally involving general aviation aircrafts, but by no means other operators are inmune. In the preceding 12 month period, over 4.000 in-flihght traffic collisions were reported to NASA-ASRS. The following ASRS reports published at CallBack September issue show that the “See and Avoid” principle remains a crucial aspect of collision avoidance in visual conditions
