India amends Aircraft Act: “Tipsy pilots now face jail”

Jueves, 5 de enero de 2012 FSI / Curt Lewis Sin comentarios

Reporting to work drunk would now mean more than just cancellation of licence for pilots and cabin crew. It will now also invite anywhere up to one year in jail and¬†important ¬†fine for tipsy pilots and crew. The aviation authorities have now amended the Aircraft Act’s rule 24 and now even those who are caught drunk at airport in pre-flight tests and then not allowed to operate their flight will now face a jail term of up to one year¬†. Pilots and cabin crew are not supposed to have alcohol at least 12 hours before operating a flight.

 

** Tispsy pilots now face 1 year jail and 5L fine

Alcohol and Human Performance from Aviation Perspective: A Review

Miércoles, 22 de junio de 2011 Jose María Pérez Sastre Sin comentarios

Alcohol is a widely used drug, and its abuse is a serious public health problem. In aviation environment has special safety  implications.It impairs almost all forms of cognitive function, such as information processing, decision-making, attention and reasoning. Visual and vestibular functions are also adversely affected. The performance of any demanding task, such as of course flying an aircraft, is thus impaired. Besides, many studies have shown a significant proportion of aircraft accidents associated with alcohol use. Alcohol increases the risk of spatial disorientation, hypoxia and poor +Gz tolerance. Here you can download an interesting  report about this issue Рfrom the aeromedical point of view Рpublished by Australian Transportation Safety Bureau. There always seemed to me useful because of its briefness.

Interpretation of Measured Alcohol levels in Fatal aviation victims

Alcohol ¬†is a commonly ingested substance which has been implicated in the causation of many types of accidents. Its effects can be summarised as loss of control of movements, decreased ability to process information and make decisions, decreased awareness of surroundings and situations and prolonged reaction times.¬†Numerous studies have implicated ethanol as a causal or contributing factor in fatal aviation accidents.¬†There are legal and social issues associated with a pilot‚Äôs use of ethanol. It is therefore important to make a correct assessment of the pilot‚Äôs blood alcohol (ethanol) level at the time of the accident….

 

¬ŅSabes ….si los vinos saben diferente a 30.000 pies de altura?

Martes, 9 de febrero de 2010 Jose María Pérez Sastre Sin comentarios

 Amaya Cervera  reconoce que aunque el lugar elegido para responder a esta cuestión, en uno de los galleys (cocinas) utilizados por la tripulación, dista ligeramente de la amplia mesa a la que están acostumbrados cuando prueban vinos para La Guía TodoVino,  las expectativas de lo que se  podrían encontrar en la copa compensaron con creces cualquier posible incomodidad (y  además les  ayudó a entender mejor la gran habilidad de los tripulantes de cabina de pasajeros para moverse con soltura por los estrechos pasillos del avión).
