The Pilot Diaspora

Lunes, 7 de noviembre de 2011 FSI / Curt Lewis Sin comentarios

This article published at last issue of Aerosafety Wordl October 2011 briefs the BALPA 2010 survey about pilot lifestyle. Of the many findings suggested by this research, some regarding to roster and economic factors contibuting to pilot commuting time and stress are worthwhile. More than 73% of respondents said they had felt unduly stressed at work. Over 30% took between 60 and 120 minutes to commute.

Fighting Pilot Fatigue on Military Charter Flights

Lunes, 31 de octubre de 2011 FSI / Curt Lewis Sin comentarios

Civilian pilots who transport troops put in long hours on little sleep.聽聽Not enough military planes and pilots to transport U.S. troops means that 87 percent of personnel flown around the globe are carried by civilian charter airlines. For years, pilot unions and safety advocates have sought to reform what they call outdated work rules, particularly for charter airlines. The Federal Aviation Administration has issued a proposed rule that would reduce the number of hours pilots can fly and increase the amount of rest they get between long trips. This article highlights the fatigue as important cause of military transport 聽accidents

Infoxicaci贸n

Cada d铆a recibimos m谩s informaci贸n; por e-mails, por聽 redes sociales, por tel茅fonos m贸viles, adem谩s de los medios habituales: prensa, radio y televisi贸n. El aceler贸n de la tecnolog铆a ha provocado que la informaci贸n nos bombarde茅 a discreci贸n, en tal medida que puede llegar a afectarnos.聽La ‘infoxicaci贸n’ empeora la capacidad anal铆tica, aumenta la ansiedad y conduce a decisiones err贸neas.

Owatonna Airport Accident 2008: Fatigue was a contributing factor

Lunes, 21 de marzo de 2011 Jose Mar铆a P茅rez Sastre Sin comentarios

Pilot error was to blame for the crash of a Hawker Beechcraft 125-800A in July 2008, the NTSB said on Tuesday (15th march). The airplane, operated by East Coast Jets, crashed when the crew attempted a go-around after landing on a wet runway at Owatonna Degner Regional Airport, in Minnesota.
