CANSO Standard of Excellence in Human Performance Management

Domingo, 24 de marzo de 2019 admin Sin comentarios

The ATM (Air Traffic Managemnet System) is interactive and complex, operating in a continually changing environment. Traditionally, the focus of human performance has been on, for example, incident investigation, recruitment, training or equipment design. While this isolated approach continues to deliver good human performance, it is also important that all areas that contribute to human performance are managed at a programme level, in an integrated manner. This is because each area is connected and this connection needs to be managed….

Research report into Australian commercial pilots鈥 experiences with fatigue

Mi茅rcoles, 23 de enero de 2019 Twitter Sin comentarios

The research report, Fatigue experience and culture in Australian commercial air transport pilots , highlights the majority of pilot surveyed reported they were well rested at the end of their last duty. Over half of the pilots reported having seven hours of sleep or more in the previous 24 hours, and over 60 per cent reported having more than 14 hours in the previous 48 hours at the end of their past . The report shows that 10 per cent of pilots reported obtaining less than five hours of sleep in the previous 24 hours, and 17 per cent reported they had less 12 hours in the previous 48 hours of their last fight.

In Australia, high capacity regular public transport operators are required to transition to the new fatigue rules by聽30 September 2019. All other operators will need to adopt the new fatigue requirements by 26 March 2020.

Jueves, 3 de enero de 2019 admin Sin comentarios

In the transportation industry, crews often work long and irregular schedules 鈥 sometimes crossing multiple time zones or in challenging conditions 鈥 that are not always conducive to proper restorative sleep. Fatigue poses a risk to the safety of freight train, marine and air operations because of its potential to degrade several aspects of human performance.

Pilots incapacitated by cold?

Mi茅rcoles, 17 de octubre de 2012 Twitter 2 comentarios

The British AAIB (Air Accident Investigation Branch) released their bulletin concluding 聽the probable cause of an incident that British Airways A321 had near London on Dec 20th 2011 :
“The symptoms experienced by the commander may have been the result of the after-effects of a cold, combined with coincidental head and aircraft movement. The temporary symptoms experienced by the co-pilot may have been a reflection of the potentially evolving situation of an incapacitation at an early stage in the flight leading to possible mild hyperventilation.”

Questions about a medevac flight accident in adverse conditions

Martes, 28 de agosto de 2012 Laura Duque Arrubla Sin comentarios

Pressure to conduct EMS operations safely and quickly in various 聽enviromental聽conditions- for example, in inclement weather and at night- increases the risk of accidents when compared to other types of patient transport methods, including ground ambulances or commercial flights. In this accident report, NTSB said, 鈥淭he pilot did not maintain sufficient airspeed during an instrument approach in icing conditions, which resulted in an aerodynamic stall and loss of control. Contributing to the accident were the pilot鈥檚 fatigue, the operator鈥檚 decision to initiate the flight without conducting a formal risk assessment that included time of day, weather and crew rest, and the lack of guidelines for the medical community to determine the appropriate mode of transportation for patients.

Martes, 21 de agosto de 2012 FSI / Curt Lewis Sin comentarios

The JetBlue Airways pilot who disrupted a cross-country flight by leaving the cockpit and 聽yelling about religion and terrorists has had a psychotic episode in prison and requires further mental evaluation. Clayton Osbon was charged with interference with a flight crew, but was found not guilty by reason of insanity last month. A forensic neuropsychologist testified in a short, unpublicized trial that Osbon had a “brief psychotic disorder” at the time of the flight brought on by lack of sleep…
