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.
Once again Dougal Watson, Aeromed-List editor puts us on track on this interesting report ¬†from the NTSB : ¬†”An accident involving a single-engine, turbine-powered, amphibious float-equipped de Havilland DHC-3T airplane,¬†which impacted mountainous, tree-covered terrain about 10 nautical miles northeast of Aleknagik, Alaska.¬†Among the safety issues discussed¬† inadequate FAA guidance related to the medical certification of [...]
A Podcast (or non-streamed webcast) is a series of digital media files (either audio or video) that are released episodically and often downloaded through web syndication. The word usurped webcast in common vernacular, due to rising popularity of the iPod and the innovation of web feed. ¬†Here you can hear many interesting audio postcast about [...]
Estimados socios y compa√Īeros de la SEMA (Sociedad Espa√Īola de Medicina Aeroespacial), bajo la coordinaci√≥n del Dr. Jose Ignacio Castro Land√≠n estamos perfilando¬†el pr√≥ximo Simposium de nuestra Sociedad que se celebrar√° el pr√≥ximo mes de Octubre de 2012 en Pontevedra . Se ha preparado el Avance del Programa Preliminar as√≠ como el Avance del Programa [...]
AVISO URGENTE A LOS SOCIOS DE SEMA Se ruega encarecidamente a los socios de SEMA nos faciliten los datos actualizados de la cuenta corriente donde desean se domicilien las cuotas anuales (70 euros a partir de 2014), incluyendo al inicio del n√ļmero de cuenta los cuatro nuevos d√≠gitos que corresponden al C√≥digo Internacional de Cuenta [...]
