    News | 02 Feb 2010 08:00

    The world has been standing by, watching an accident trend develop. So far it has caused 976 deaths since 2000. How many more are needed before a preventive strategy is applied?http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Comment-The-976-people-recently-killed-by-pilot-disorientation-accidents-337798/

    News | 16 Aug 2009 11:00

    The US FAA is right to be researching ways to train pilots for recovery from unusual attitudes, and EASA should be watching. But there is more than one way of achieving the objectivehttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Comment-Upset-recovery-training-331048/

  • Global airline accident analysis for 2008

    News | 19 Jan 2009 12:00 | David Learmount

    <P>One of the themes that emerged from last October's <A href="http://www.flightsafety.org/home.html">Flight&nbsp;Safety Foundation International</A> Aviation Safety Seminar was that, to advance safety, airlines need to move "beyond [regulatory] compliance", because rulemaking has done about as much as it effectively can.</P> <P>That theme, also embraced by the <A href="http://www.iata.org/index.htm">International&nbsp;Air Transport Association</A> and the <A href="http://www.ifairworthy.com/">International&nbsp;Federation of Airworthiness</A>, which organise the safety seminar jointly with the FSF, has since been given additional credibility by 2008's accident figures. These confirm that global airline safety has stagnated following a decade of steady improvement - airline fatal accident numbers have levelled out or worsened since 2003 (see graph).</P> <P>Simple figures paint the picture: in 2003 there were 27 fatal airline accidents causing 702 deaths, and in 2008 there were 34http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Global-airline-accident-analysis-for-2008-321124/
  • Comment: curb these killers

    News | 04 Nov 2008 00:00

    <p>The year so far has made it clear that loss of control as a killer accident category should be firmly on the airline industry's agenda as a problem to be solved. It is not reducing when almost all other accident categories are.</p><p>But work on the issue is under way. The US National Transportation Safety Board has been carrying out a study on such accidents that were caused by pilot spatial disorientation, including those involving Crossair (January 2000), Gulf Air (August 2000), Flash Airlines (January 2004) and Adam Airlines (January 2007), to determine what remedial actions might work.</p><p>Boeing, meanwhile, has conducted a simple but cleverly designed test to determine if one of the theoretical solutions - upset recovery training for pilots - is a viable solution. The test revealed that pilots got measurably better at recovering quickly from extreme attitudes following training, but that doesn't necessarily make upset recovery training a complete answer to disorientation-indhttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Comment-curb-these-killers-318253/
