The FAA is intending to propose new rules for civilian use of small drone aircraft in January. UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles), also known popularly as ‚Äúdrones,‚ÄĚ are most recognized for their crucial role in the war in Afghanistan.¬†They have been also used very recently ¬†in civilian field, you may recall that after the catastrophic tsunami that struck Japan earlier this year, several types of robotic aircraft assisted air ambulance crews in search and rescue operations. The FAA hasn‚Äôt fully permitted drones in airspace at home due to concerns that the robotic craft do not yet have sufficient ‚Äúdetect, sense, and avoid. This story may seem like the science fiction of years past, but the technology of reality has now caught up with the writer‚Äôs imagination. What‚Äôs more, now that robotic aircraft technology has arrived, it‚Äôs very unlikely to disappear.
De nuevo llega la Navidad, y a continuaci√≥n el A√Īo Nuevo, que nunca como este a√Īo hemos deseado tanto que ¬†realmente sea nuevo ¬†y¬† mejor.¬†Las ilusiones, los deseos, las perspectivas¬† de mejora, los proyectos¬† de futuro, los vamos construyendo ¬†d√≠a a d√≠a¬† y es imprescindible que as√≠ sea pues son¬† alimento del alma.Y si cada d√≠a ,¬†¬†deseamos fervientemente que se cumplan, seguro que como los ni√Īos en la m√°gica noche de Reyes , al despertarnos se har√°n realidad. De todo coraz√≥n os deseo¬† que junto a vuestros seres queridos teng√°is una Navidad plena de¬†¬† de felicidad¬†¬† y un a√Īo 2012 en que cumplan vuestros¬† mejores deseos .
The Aviation Health Conference¬†that was held in London ¬†last October continued to emphasize cabin crew and passenger health, but will also targeted a wider audience, including flight deck crew when appropriate. Here you can see presentations regarding to Cosmic Radiation, Flight fatigue, Cabin Hygiene, Malaria and crews and Health effects of volcanic ashes. Very advisable to read for aviation medical examiners as well as to¬† flight crews.¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†
A research study titled “A Descriptive Instrumental Collective Case Study of the Cognitive Processes Employed by Pilots-in-command During Extended, Extreme, In-flight Emergencies” is currently being conducted.¬† The purpose of this research¬†is to provide an understanding of the cognitive processes (among them risk assessment, problem solving, and decision making) pilots who have experienced these extreme emergencies have used, and how they have used them,¬†in successfully overcoming the emergency.¬† From this, further research will be conducted with the ultimate intent of defining training methodologies to provide more pilots with these skills.The researcher is in the process of recruiting pilots who have experienced in-flight emergencies that meet the study criteria to participate in this research….
The Nationnal Luchtvaart-Themapark or simply Aviodrome , located in Lalystad, Netherlands is quite a long leap from being an average european air-show. A unique combination of permanent air festival, aerospace museum and family theme park. A visit is really worthwhile but if you can not go, then do not miss this 57 slides show.
An improperly adjusted safety switch that rendered the aircraft‚Äôs pressurization system inoperative, an incorrectly wired cabin altitude warning switch that disabled a warning light and the pilot‚Äôs 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.
El siguiente art√≠culo, aunque publicado hace unos a√Īos,¬†se refiere a la exobiolog√≠a, es extrapolable a la exploraci√≥n humana de Marte y, por tanto, indirectamente tiene algo de relaci√≥n¬†con la Medicina Espacial, aunque tenga m√°s que ver¬†con la F√≠sica y con¬†la Geolog√≠a Planetaria. Su autora Carmen Cordoba Jabonero¬†¬† mezcla con estilo, ¬†la divulgaci√≥n con el rigor [...]
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 [...]
From time to time “The guardian” in its¬†very detailed site on travel¬† publish articles about topics that can be very interesting for travellers, as well as for aviation medical examiners. Even for one year, Dr. Jules Eden answered questions on Travel Medicine that oftenly we have to deal with on our daily practice. Travel insurance, [...]
