Aena elimina el Servicio M茅dico del Aeropuerto de Alicante por las noches

Jueves, 26 de julio de 2012 Twitter Sin comentarios

AENA, ha decidido suprimir durante ocho horas al d铆a, el servicio sanitario que ofrece en 聽el aeropuerto de Alicante. Hasta ahora el servicio permanente H24 era atendido por un m茅dico, un ATS y una ambulancia para cubrir las incidencias a trabajadores y pasajeros. A partir del pr贸ximo 17 de agosto no estar谩 operativo entre la cero y las ocho horas. Al igual que CCOO, no entendemos que ning煤n recorte econ贸mico pase por la reducci贸n de la seguridad de la aeronaves o los pasajeros.

El aeropuerto de Girona prescinde del Servicio de Asistencia sanitaria

Martes, 17 de julio de 2012 Twitter 1 comentario

Seg煤n publica Extracrew.com ,el aeropuerto de Girona ha prescindido del servicio de asistencia sanitaria que desarrollaban cinco t茅cnicos en las mismas instalaciones, seg煤n informa el sindicato UGT.聽 Las mismas fuentes explican que los trabajadores y pasajeros deber谩n ser atendidos ahora en los centros de asistencia primaria de Santa Coloma de Farners o Cass脿 de la Selva, ambos situados a doce kil贸metros de distancia. Las urgencias graves se resolver铆an con la intervenci贸n del tel茅fono de emergencias 112 para que una ambulancia se desplazase hasta el aeropuerto. UGT ha rechazado la supresi贸n del servicio sanitario y ha denunciado precipitaci贸n por parte de la direcci贸n aeroportuaria, a la que critica que no se haya planteado un ajuste del horario de prestaci贸n

En 2009 este aeropuerto movi贸 5.286.975 pasajeros, gestion贸 48.128 operaciones y 71 toneladas de carga. Lo que lo llev贸 a ser el 8潞 aeropuerto espa帽ol por n煤mero de pasajeros. Al parecer no suficiente para mantener un servicio de asistencia m茅dica propio.

Air France 447 and “The automation Paradox”

Viernes, 13 de julio de 2012 FSI / Curt Lewis Sin comentarios

A deadly combination of pilot confusion, “warning system ergonomics” design and 聽inadequate pilot training were responsible for the crash of Air France Flight 447 on 1 June 2009.聽This is the conclusion reached by the BEA (Bureau d’Enqu锚tes et d’Analyses pour la s茅curit茅 de l’aviation civile), the French authority responsible for carrying out safety investigations relating to accidents or serious incidents in civil aviation, in its final report into the crash. BEA’s 224-page report indicated that the aircraft might have been flown out of danger if the pilots had realized the situation they were facing.

And what this has to do with Automation Paradox?聽 ….

Business aviation safety report over 20 years

Jueves, 10 de mayo de 2012 FSI / Curt Lewis 2 comentarios

There is a long-term favourable trend in business-jet fatal accident rates – and a significant improvement during the past three years which will be remarkable if sustained. That is the judgement of Paul Hayes, senior safety analyst at Flightglobal‘s data and consultancy division Ascend. During the 1990s, the rate in question was one fatal accident per 600 aircraft, while for the 2000s it has been one per 900 aircraft. On this basis, 2011 was the safest year ever for the class and continues the safety improvement trend that has halved the accident rate in the past 10 years…

Aviation safety suffers further setback after Helios conviction

Jueves, 3 de mayo de 2012 FSI / Curt Lewis 1 comentario

A Licensed Aircraft Maintenance Engineer has received a 10 year prison sentence by an 聽Athens court for allegedly not resetting a cockpit switch following maintenance on the Helios Airways Boeing 737-300 which crashed into a mountain near Athens in 2005 after its oxygen supply failed and the pilots and most of the passengers fell unconscious. It is difficult to grasp how aviation safety can be improved if the legal process surrounding an aircraft accident allows an engineer to be condemned to a prison sentence based on an “assumption” that a cockpit Switch (critical to flight safety) was set in the incorrect position….
