...Aviation Safety Abstract Aircraft accidents are not very common, but when they happen, the level of damage is large compared to other means of transport. This is because some aircrafts have a very large capacity of passengers that they can accommodate. This is not always the case, as some of them are small and do not carry so many people. Aircrafts accidents range from fires, collisions, ditching and accidents caused by pilot errors among others. This paper will look at an accident that happened in 1997 at Newark International Airport in New Jersey. The paper will address the causes of the accidents, the findings of the investigation carried out after the accident, recommendations after the investigation as well as the measures taken to make sure that accidents of this type do not happen again. Aviation Safety FedEx Express Flight 14 This scheduled cargo flight was going to Newark International Airport, New Jersey from the Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport in Anchorage, Alaska. It crashed when trying to make a safe landing on July 31, 1997. The pilots thought that the plane would have little stopping distance after landing, which made them think of landing early on the runway. Misinterpretation of runway data was the main cause of the crash (Dismukes, Berman & Loukopoulos, 2012). The pilots were aware that the plane had problems with its auto-breaks because they failed to initiate during landing, which also contributed to their hasty decision to land......

...stem the rise of Virgin Australia in the domestic Australian market, which threatens the flag carrier’s market share (Saurine, 2012). It was evident that Jetstar has played a vital role in profitability as the revenue climbed by more than 40% from 2006 to 2007. In addition, Jetstar contributed almost four-fold increase in operating profit earning A$112 million from routes that Qantas lost money. Jetstar also challenged Virgin Australia to its full extend, proving itself worthy by contributing A$250 million profits to the Qantas group from 2007 to 2010. Thus, it was apparent that Jetstar helped to sustain head to head competition with Virgin in low yielding leisure routes and provided profitable growth for the Qantas Group (Asia Pacific Aviation, 2008). Besides that, Qantas responded to the problem of rising international competitions by refocusing their operations on long haul markets, where there was a greater scope for profitable operations. Thus, it tied up with Emirates (Aspireaviation, 2013). This alliance provided both Qantas and Emirates customers with increased access to a large number of existing frequencies and destinations under a single airline code improved the connectivity and scheduling of the flights and access to each alliance partner’s frequent flyer programs (Gazzar, 2014). Together, Qantas and Emirates operate 98 weekly flight services between Australia and Dubai, including from Sydney, Perth, Brisbane, Adelaide, and Melbourne, with one-stop connection......

Aviation Safety Program

...AVIATION SAFETY PROGRAM Name Professor’s name Course Date Abstract The paper seeks to look into some of the critical issues concerning safety measures in the commercial aviation industry. It focuses more on the concept of stress in Air Traffic Controllers (ATC) and how high stress levels can affect the performance of ATCs. Further emphasis is laid on the various measures that can be put into place to address some of the safety issues in commercial aviation industry through the risk management strategies. Several aspects of the whole case arise in the whole program of addressing the issue. It becomes a matter of collective responsibility in the bid to address safety issues and come up with modalities to mitigate any safety threats in the future. At the end, we realize that all the players in the industry have the specific roles to play towards the program. Introduction In an increasingly competitive global environment, where the scramble for resources and the search for tangible opportunities seem to have overtaken any other global undertaking, the importance of commercial aviation cannot be overemphasized. Commercial aviation plays a very central role in the overall growth of any economy across the world. It is therefore imperative to look into the key issues that govern the aviation industry to ensure its success and proper functionalism. The concept of aviation security comes in as one of the most pressing issues in this regard.......

...If you are considering a professional aviation career, think seriously about the adjective that modifies aviation. "Professional," as defined by the dictionary, means "of, engaged in, or worthy of the high standards of, a profession; designating or of a school, especially a graduate school, offering instruction in a profession." Further consider "professional" as a noun — "a person practicing a profession; a person who engages in some art, sport, etc. for money, especially for his livelihood, rather than as a hobby; a person who does something with great skill." These definitions could have been written with aviation in mind because it definitely has high standards, and the people who meet these standards certainly must exhibit great skill. Aviation professionals are not born, they are educated. With professional aviation's increasingly complex and high-technology environment, being an aviation professional, today and in the future, requires more than just knowing how to fly. Few of the major airlines require a college degree for employment, but in the past several years, more than 95 percent of the pilots hired have at least a four-year college degree. If you want an airline job, you stand a better chance if you are among the 95 percent with a degree than the 5 percent without one. Aviation is an exciting career field, and because you can earn an above-average income, competition for jobs is keen. Traditionally, military pilots often place first in the employment contest...

Філіпенко О.В. Метою даної статті є загальний огляд явища незаконного втручання в діяльність цивільної авіації та висвітлення деяких значущих аспектів даної проблеми, яка не тільки не втрачає, а навпаки дедалі набуває все більшої актуальності. З появою авіації, зокрема цивільної авіації, незабаром постало питання захисту від незаконних актів втручання у її діяльність. Так, держави почали вживати заходів на законодавчому рівні. Одним з найбільш ранніх законодавчих актів подібного роду був закон Німеччини 1922р., який, зокрема, встановлював міри покарання для осіб, «які навмисно піддають небезпеці життя людей шляхом навмисного пошкодження, знищення або приведення до непридатного чи небезпечного стану повітряного апарата, а також ті, хто навмисно створюють перепони для руху повітряного апарату шляхом оманливих сигналів чи іншим чином»49. Найперший відомий випадок незаконного захоплення літака, відбувся в Перу в 1930р. За деякими відомостями, літак було викрадено з метою поширення листівок революційного змісту (іноді зустрічається дата першого угону літака в 1912 р.) 50. Однак жодних наслідків у міжнародно-правовій......

Chappelle Jr Commercial Aviation Safety Tom Stein 9 April 2011 USAF C-17 Crash Abstract On the 28th of July 2010, an Air Force C-17 took of from Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson in Alaska so it could practice for an air-show that was to happen later on in the week. During the first minute of flight that included takeoff, a steep climb followed by an aggressive left turn and as planed the aircraft executed another aggressive right hand turn so he could line up with runway 6 for a high speed low pass, It was during this right hand turn that the aircraft entered into a low altitude stall and crashed killing all crew onboard. It was found that pilot error was the cause of the crash. On the 28th of July around 1800, an Air Force C-17a with a total of 4 crew members to include the load master, took off on runway 06 at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson in Alaska. It was a schedule practice flight for the aircrew so they could practice for the Arctic Thunder airshow that was to happen a few days later on the 31st of July. The flight was intended to show the crowd the extreme maneuverability of the C-17. The practice flight included a maximum climbout followed by a steep left turn. After the left turn, the aircraft was to inter another steep right hand turn that would allow the C-17 to line up with the runway that it......

Qa & Aviation Safety

... Aviation Safety and Quality Assurance Despite having an enviable safety record, the aviation industry is under constant pressure to drive down accident rates. Air accidents damage consumer confidence and inhibit the growth of the industry. When it comes to flying, the word safety is mentioned constantly. Shortage of qualified professionals, aging of aircraft’s fleet and environmental concerns are some of the challenges faced by today’s aviation. The primary goal of the aviation industry is to maintain airplane and helicopter safety standards and protect the interests of the mechanics, flight crew, and passengers. It is important the use of different techniques for increase of safety practices in a industry that is increasingly diverse, complex, and under very significant pressure. John O'Brian, from ALPA's Engineering and Air Safety Department, once mentioned “No matter how interested individual employees might be, or what assistance a manufacturer offers, or how insistent a certificating authority might be—none of these factors will have a significant effect on safety without support from top management”, so it is imperative that managers and supervisors are well aware of the impact of their roles during the daily operations. As aviation evolves, a lot of programs and procedures were created in order to organize, monitor and standardize maintenance practices and flight operations. From a safety......
