Is service with the parachute regiment bad for your health? (1/151)

Military parachuting is perceived to be a 'high risk' activity. The estimate of risk should be based on a comparison of injury rates between soldiers who are military parachutists and soldiers who are not military parachutists rather than the rate of injury per parachute descent. Since other aspects of military life also have an inherent risk of injury the risk attributable to military parachuting must be assessed in this context. The aim of this paper is to determine whether Parachute Regiment soldiers have a greater risk of injury as compared with non-Parachute Regiment infantry soldiers by comparing rates of hospital admission and medical discharge between the two groups. Records at the Defence Analytical Services Agency were analysed for the 10-year period 1987-96. The mean rate of hospital admission for Parachute Regiment soldiers was 50.1 per 1,000 and for infantry soldiers was 50.8 per 1,000 [relative risk (RR) = 0.98; 95% confidence interval (CI) = 0.92-1.04). The mean rate of medical discharge for Parachute Regiment soldiers was 4.9 per 1,000 and for infantry the mean rate was 2.8 per 1,000 (RR = 1.76; CI = 1.45-2.15). This study has shown a methodology for comparing occupational exposure to risk that could be extended to other groups if they can be separated by appropriate criteria.  (+info)

What is the risk associated with being a qualified military parachutist? (2/151)

Military parachuting has been recognized as a hazardous activity since it was first introduced in World War II. Other risks associated with military service include actual war-fighting, training with weapons and explosives, operating with armoured vehicles or deployment to climatic extremes. These other hazards should be considered in any assessment of the additional risk associated with military parachuting. The aim of this study was to identify the risk attributable to parachuting amongst US Army enlisted soldiers. This study identified a cohort of infantry soldiers who served between 1990-94. They were separated by receipt of parachute hazardous duty pay. There was a total of 329,794 person-years (PY) available for study of which 18% were in the exposed group. The rate of hospitalization was very similar in both groups [123.9 per 1,000 PYs for the exposed group, 127 in the non-exposed group: relative risk (RR) = 0.98, 95% confidence interval (CI) = 0.96-1.00). The exposed group was 1.49 times (CI = 1.42-1.57) more likely to be admitted as a result of an injury as compared with the non-exposed group. Military parachuting was 20 times (CI = 16.6-24.3) more likely to be the cause of an injury. This study has shown that receipt of hazardous duty pay for military parachuting can be used as a marker in identifying significant additional risks to the health of infantry soldiers associated with military parachuting. This was reflected in an increased incidence of admission for acute injury and musculoskeletal trauma (particularly a trauma pattern associated with parachuting) as a result of military parachuting. Other risks, which are associated with parachute pay, are admission for the effects of heat, battle injury and helicopter accidents.  (+info)

Personal exposure to JP-8 jet fuel vapors and exhaust at air force bases. (3/151)

JP-8 jet fuel (similar to commercial/international jet A-1 fuel) is the standard military fuel for all types of vehicles, including the U.S. Air Force aircraft inventory. As such, JP-8 presents the most common chemical exposure in the Air Force, particularly for flight and ground crew personnel during preflight operations and for maintenance personnel performing routine tasks. Personal exposure at an Air Force base occurs through occupational exposure for personnel involved with fuel and aircraft handling and/or through incidental exposure, primarily through inhalation of ambient fuel vapors. Because JP-8 is less volatile than its predecessor fuel (JP-4), contact with liquid fuel on skin and clothing may result in prolonged exposure. The slowly evaporating JP-8 fuel tends to linger on exposed personnel during their interaction with their previously unexposed colleagues. To begin to assess the relative exposures, we made ambient air measurements and used recently developed methods for collecting exhaled breath in special containers. We then analyzed for certain volatile marker compounds for JP-8, as well as for some aromatic hydrocarbons (especially benzene) that are related to long-term health risks. Ambient samples were collected by using compact, battery-operated, personal whole-air samplers that have recently been developed as commercial products; breath samples were collected using our single-breath canister method that uses 1-L canisters fitted with valves and small disposable breathing tubes. We collected breath samples from various groups of Air Force personnel and found a demonstrable JP-8 exposure for all subjects, ranging from slight elevations as compared to a control cohort to > 100 [mutilpe] the control values. This work suggests that further studies should be performed on specific issues to obtain pertinent exposure data. The data can be applied to assessments of health outcomes and to recommendations for changes in the use of personal protective equipment that optimize risk reduction without undue impact on a mission.  (+info)

Error, stress, and teamwork in medicine and aviation: cross sectional surveys. (4/151)

OBJECTIVES: To survey operating theatre and intensive care unit staff about attitudes concerning error, stress, and teamwork and to compare these attitudes with those of airline cockpit crew. DESIGN: : Cross sectional surveys. SETTING: : Urban teaching and non-teaching hospitals in the United States, Israel, Germany, Switzerland, and Italy. Major airlines around the world. PARTICIPANTS: : 1033 doctors, nurses, fellows, and residents working in operating theatres and intensive care units and over 30 000 cockpit crew members (captains, first officers, and second officers). MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: : Perceptions of error, stress, and teamwork. RESULTS: : Pilots were least likely to deny the effects of fatigue on performance (26% v 70% of consultant surgeons and 47% of consultant anaesthetists). Most pilots (97%) and intensive care staff (94%) rejected steep hierarchies (in which senior team members are not open to input from junior members), but only 55% of consultant surgeons rejected such hierarchies. High levels of teamwork with consultant surgeons were reported by 73% of surgical residents, 64% of consultant surgeons, 39% of anaesthesia consultants, 28% of surgical nurses, 25% of anaesthetic nurses, and 10% of anaesthetic residents. Only a third of staff reported that errors are handled appropriately at their hospital. A third of intensive care staff did not acknowledge that they make errors. Over half of intensive care staff reported that they find it difficult to discuss mistakes. CONCLUSIONS: Medical staff reported that error is important but difficult to discuss and not handled well in their hospital. Barriers to discussing error are more important since medical staff seem to deny the effect of stress and fatigue on performance. Further problems include differing perceptions of teamwork among team members and reluctance of senior theatre staff to accept input from junior members.  (+info)

Cancer incidence among Norwegian airline pilots. (5/151)

OBJECTIVES: In this retrospective cohort study, the cancer incidence of commercial pilots was studied to determine whether exposure at work has any influence on the incidence of cancer. METHODS: The cohort was established from the files of the Civil Aviation Administration and included people who had valid licenses as commercial pilots between 1946 and 1994. Basic data about their flight careers were recorded, and exposure to cosmic radiation was estimated. The cohort was linked to the Cancer Register of Norway. The observed number of cases was compared with that expected based on national rates. RESULTS: A group of 3701 male pilots was followed over 70 560 person-years. There were 200 cases of cancer versus 188.8 expected, with a standardized incidence ratio (SIR) of 1.06 and a 95% confidence interval (95% CI) of 0.92-1.22. No significant decreased risk was found for any cancer site. Excess risks were found for malignant melanoma (22 cases SIR 1.8, 95% CI 1.1-2.7) and nonmelanoma skin cancer (14 cases, SIR 2.4, 95% CI 1.3-4.0). For malignant melanoma, there was a significant trend for the SIR by cumulative dose. CONCLUSIONS: For most cancer sites, the incidence among pilots did not deviate from that of the general population and could not be related to block hours of flight time or dose. It seems more likely that the excess risks of malignant melanoma and skin cancer are explained by factors related to life-style rather than by conditions at work.  (+info)

Changes in the ocular and nasal signs and symptoms of aircrews in relation to the ban on smoking on intercontinental flights. (6/151)

OBJECTIVES: This study determined the influence of exposure to environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) in aircraft on measured and perceived cabin air quality (CAQ), symptoms, tear-film stability, nasal patency, and biomarkers in nasal lavage fluid. METHODS: Commercial aircrews underwent a standardized examination, including acoustic rhinometry, nasal lavage, and measurement of tear-film break-up time. Eosinophilic cationic protein, myeloperoxidase, lysozyme, and albumin were analyzed in the nasal lavage fluid. Inflight investigations [participation rate 98% (N=39)] were performed on board 4 flights, 2 in each direction between Scandinavia and Japan. Scandinavian crew on 6 flights from Scandinavia to Japan participated in postflight measurements after landing [participation rate 85% (N=41)]. Half the flights permitted smoking on board, and the other half, 0.5 months later, did not. Hygienic measurements showed low relative air humidity on board (2-10%) and a carbon dioxide concentration of <1000 ppm during 99.6% of the cruising time. RESULTS: The smoking ban caused a drastic reduction of respirable particles, from a mean of 66 (SD 56) microg/m3 to 3 (SD 0.8) microg/m3. The perceived CAQ was improved, and there were fewer symptoms, particularly ocular symptoms, headache and tiredness. Tear-film stability increased, and nasal patency was altered. CONCLUSIONS: Despite a high air exchange rate and spatial separation between smokers and nonsmokers, smoking in commercial aircraft may cause significant air pollution, as indicated by a large increase in respirable particles. This ETS exposure is associated with an increase in ocular and general symptoms, decreased tear-film stability, and alterations of nasal patency.  (+info)

Gravitoinertial force magnitude and direction influence head-centric auditory localization. (7/151)

We measured the influence of gravitoinertial force (GIF) magnitude and direction on head-centric auditory localization to determine whether a true audiogravic illusion exists. In experiment 1, supine subjects adjusted computer-generated dichotic stimuli until they heard a fused sound straight ahead in the midsagittal plane of the head under a variety of GIF conditions generated in a slow-rotation room. The dichotic stimuli were constructed by convolving broadband noise with head-related transfer function pairs that model the acoustic filtering at the listener's ears. These stimuli give rise to the perception of externally localized sounds. When the GIF was increased from 1 to 2 g and rotated 60 degrees rightward relative to the head and body, subjects on average set an acoustic stimulus 7.3 degrees right of their head's median plane to hear it as straight ahead. When the GIF was doubled and rotated 60 degrees leftward, subjects set the sound 6.8 degrees leftward of baseline values to hear it as centered. In experiment 2, increasing the GIF in the median plane of the supine body to 2 g did not influence auditory localization. In experiment 3, tilts up to 75 degrees of the supine body relative to the normal 1 g GIF led to small shifts, 1--2 degrees, of auditory setting toward the up ear to maintain a head-centered sound localization. These results show that head-centric auditory localization is affected by azimuthal rotation and increase in magnitude of the GIF and demonstrate that an audiogravic illusion exists. Sound localization is shifted in the direction opposite GIF rotation by an amount related to the magnitude of the GIF and its angular deviation relative to the median plane.  (+info)

Cosmic radiation protection dosimetry using an Electronic personal Dosemeter (Siemens EPD) on selected international flights. (8/151)

The effectiveness of an Electronic Personal Dosemeter (Siemens EPD) for cosmic-radiation dosimetry at aviation altitudes was examined on eight international flights between March and September, 1998. The EPD values (Hepd) of the dose equivalent from penetrating radiation, Hp(10), were assumed to be almost the same as the electron absorbed doses during those flights. Based on the compositions of cosmic radiation in the atmosphere and the 1977 ICRP recommendation, an empirical equation to conservatively estimate the personal dose equivalent (Hp77) at a depth of 5 cm was derived as Hp77 = 3.1 x Hepd. The personal dose equivalent (Hp90) based on the 1990 ICRP recommendation was given by Hp90 = 4.6 x Hepd; the conservative feature of Hp90 was confirmed in a comparison with the calculated effective doses by means of the CARI-6 code. It is thus expected that the EPD will be effectively used for radiation protection dosimetry on selected international flights.  (+info)

At any given time, there are up to 5,000 aircraft in flight across the United States. Air Traffic Controllers direct the air traffic flow for approximately 200,000 aircraft each day. Controllers must manage and monitor all aspects of planes in the air and on the runway in a fast-paced and high pressure environment. Pilots rely on timely and accurate information from Air Traffic Controllers, and if they do not receive it, the results can be deadly. Although Air Traffic Controller error in these intense situations is understandable, it is by no means excusable. If you have been injured, or a loved one was injured or killed, in an aviation accident caused by Air Traffic Controller error, it is essential to contact an experienced aviation law firm with attorneys who are experienced in aviation disasters, as soon as possible.. Causes of Air Traffic Controller Error. Air Traffic Controller error can be caused by numerous factors. The following are examples of some of the most common:. ...

Air traffic controllers in the Federal Aviation Administration can submit voluntary safety reports when significant safety concerns and potential safety events are encountered during their everyday operations. We tested two questions: Can safety reports be classified according to whether the risk was known or unknown to the controller or the system; and would classifying reports in this manner yield useful safety information? A sample of 36 reports was assessed using this known-unknown method. 55% of the reports were classified as risks known to the controller but unknown to the system. 17% of the reports were scored as known to both the controller and the system. 14% were classified as unknown to the controller but known to the system, and 14% as unknown to both the controller and the system. Trends, limitations, and next steps are discussed.
To advance the uniform strength of the interconnected international civil aviation chain, technical cooperation and aviation safety, WAF calls for the establishment of a Global Aviation Fund to assist states in need to develop the necessary capacity and tools to comply with international (ICAO) aviation standards. Furthermore, contracting states to the Chicago Convention should avoid and prevent the disruption of funding to the International Civil Aviation Organization. WAF advocates that the funding mechanism of ICAO should never be disrupted.

Under the International Aviation Safety Assessment (IASA) program, the FAA determines whether another countrys oversight of its air carriers that operate, or seek to operate, into the U.S., or codeshare with a U.S. air carrier, complies with safety standards established by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). The IASA program is administered by the FAA Associate Administrator for Aviation Safety (AVS), Flight Standards Service (AFS), International Programs and Policy Division (AFS-50).. The IASA program focuses on a countrys ability, not the ability of individual air carriers, to adhere to international aviation safety standards and recommended practices contained in Annex 1 (Personnel Licensing), Annex 6 (Operation of Aircraft), and Annex 8 (Airworthiness of Aircraft) to the International Convention on Civil Aviation Chicago Convention (ICAO Document 7300).. IASA assessments determine compliance with these international Standards by focusing on the eight critical elements ...
Medical certification of U.S. airmen officially began with the Air Commerce Act of 1926, mandating that all pilots be medically qualified to fly. Disqualifying for any class of medical certificate were conditions that could cause sudden incapacitation or death, or could otherwise compromise aviation safety.. Since that time, aeromedical research has discovered, validated, and codified information about the physiological aspects of safe flight. The U.S. aviation system has the safest record of any mode of passenger transportation in the nation, but continued effort is required to preserve that record. Major challenges to aviation safety include revolutionary changes in aviation technology, human error, and intense physical demands. To function safely in todays complex airspace, it is imperative that all air crewmembers be medically qualified to perform their duties. For this reason, the aviation medical examiner is a key element in the aviation safety formula.. If you are interested in aviation, ...

through it and slow the parachute even more. Plastic Parachute Nylon Parachute Polyester Parachute Side View of Parachute Layout of Parachute Fabric Close-ups of Fabrics Plastic Nylon Polyester These were not the exact fabrics we used to make our parachutes, but were of the same material and will still give you a good idea of the consistency of the fabrics. Summary of Results By conducting this experiment, we found that the plastic bag was the most effective material for slowing the parachute down. The plastic was about .5 meters per second slower than Nylon and Polyester, at 1.44 m/s and was slower that our control group (no parachute) by 4.5 meters per second. This shows that our hypothesis was accepted, and that the parachutes were the variable slowing the fall. Nylon and Polyester were both very close, with Nylon .3 m/s slower than Polyester at 2.03 m/s. We observed that plastic parachute often spiraled as it fell, which made it take a longer time to hit the ground, which might have been one ...
Nowadays, the aviation sector plays a vital role in the economic development of countries by connecting the continents. Air transportation is preferred more and more thanks to its advantages over the other transportation modes. After implementation of liberalization policies in Turkey, the aviation industry has shown a rapid development and the country has taken its place at the forefront in the world air transport. Due to the increasing demand for the aviation industry, inevitably CO2 emissions of the sector increased rapidly. In spite of contributing to climate change in small percentages, the aviation industry is showing a much faster growth trend than other sources of emissions or industries. In this study, Turkeys CO2 emissions from international civil aviation activities are determined for the years between 2018 and 2030 by modelling Turkeys air passenger traffic demand under different scenarios. In air passenger traffic modeling, it is forecasted that air passenger traffic would reach ...

Air traffic controllers across the country had their first payday without a check. And theres no sign of when that will change.
Thursday marks 40 years since former President Ronald Reagan fired more than 11,000 striking air traffic controllers. That dealt a serious blow to the American labor movement.

TY - JOUR. T1 - Space-time FSI modeling and dynamical analysis of spacecraft parachutes and parachute clusters. AU - Takizawa, Kenji. AU - Spielman, Timothy. AU - Tezduyar, Tayfun E.. PY - 2011/9. Y1 - 2011/9. N2 - Computer modeling of spacecraft parachutes, which are quite often used in clusters of two or three large parachutes, involves fluid-structure interaction (FSI) between the parachute canopy and the air, geometric complexities created by the construction of the parachute from rings and sails with hundreds of gaps and slits, and the contact between the parachutes. The Team for Advanced Flow Simulation and Modeling (T*AFSM) has successfully addressed the computational challenges related to the FSI and geometric complexities, and recently started addressing the challenges related to the contact between the parachutes of a cluster. The core numerical technology is the stabilized space-time FSI technique developed and improved over the years by the (T*AFSM) . The special technique used ...
Over the last few years, the safety record of U.S. commercial airlines has improved to the point where the statistics on accidents are negligible. The overwhelming numbers of aviation fatalities occur in General Aviation (GA) accidents. While the fatal accident rate has improved-from around 5.0 per 100,000 miles flown in the post-World War II era to varying between 1.2 and 1.5 since 1996-it still results in 450 to 700 deaths per year. In 2013, improving GA safety was on the National Transportation Safety Boards (NTSBs) most wanted list. The NTSB has cited a lack of aeronautical knowledge as the cause of many of these accidents. If pilots are required to pass Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) knowledge and practical tests prior to obtaining a new pilot certificate, how could they not possess the knowledge needed to operate in the National Airspace System (NAS)? Some, attributing it to a failure to learn basic aeronautical knowledge, are concerned that potential pilots memorize the answers ...

The Alien Flight Student Program is a program operated by the United States Transportation Security Administration to screen prospective flight student candidates who are not citizens of the United States, before they are allowed to undergo pilot training. This program was created in response to the September 11, 2001 attacks, in recognition of the fact that the individuals who piloted the hijacked aircraft first learned to fly at US flight schools. The mission of the program is to ensure that foreign students seeking training at flight schools regulated by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) do not pose a threat to aviation or national security. Section 612 of the Vision 100 - Century of Aviation Reauthorization Act (Public Law 108-176, December 12, 2003) prohibits flight schools regulated by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) from providing flight training to a foreign student unless the Secretary of Homeland Security first determines that the student does not pose a threat to ...

Award at 2. As an initial matter, the Arbitrator stated that Article 42, Section 4 of the parties agreement requires that promotions be made in accordance with Agency directives and that Article 36 of the agreement provides that an employee will be promoted when the employee becomes fully eligible. Id. at 22. Interpreting these provisions, the Arbitrator found that an otherwise lawful eligibility requirement set forth in Agency Directives constitutes a valid requirement and allows the Agency to withhold a promotion . . . . Id. (2) The Arbitrator also rejected the Unions reliance on an award of Arbitrator David Concepcion (Concepcion award) involving the parties to support its position that time spent as a DC should be credited for promotion and pay purposes. The Arbitrator noted that the Agencys exceptions to that award were pending with the Authority (3) and that the record and arguments in the case before him differentiate it from the dispute addressed by the other arbitrator.

Pilots who are considered hypertensive are closely monitored by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to ensure that their hypertension is properly controlled. During the investigation of fatal civil aviation accidents, postmortem samples obtained from pilots are submitted to the FAAs Civil Aerospace Medical Institute (CAMI) for toxicological evaluation. During such evaluation, submitted samples are analyzed for prescription and nonprescription drugs, and it is common to find beta-blocker antihypertensives such as atenolol, metoprolol, and propranolol in the submitted biological samples. During a 10-year period of 1993-2002, postmortem samples from 3290 civil aviation accident pilot fatalities (cases) were received by CAMI. Toxicological evaluation of these cases revealed that 50 of the 3290 fatalities had the commonly prescribed beta-blockers, atenolol, metoprolol, and propranolol. Out of the 50 fatalities, atenolol, metoprolol, and propranolol were found to be present in 24, 19, and 7 ...

Drowsy Driving also known as Drivers Fatigue has been identified as a cause of many accidents. A major cause of Drowsy Driving is Sleep Apnea. The Center for Disease Control has stated An estimated 1 in 25 adult drivers (aged 18 years or older) report having fallen asleep while driving in the previous 30 days. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that drowsy driving was responsible for 72,000 crashes, 44,000 injuries, and 800 deaths in 2013. However, these numbers are underestimated and up to 6,000 fatal crashes each year may be caused by drowsy drivers. The National Transportation Safety Board found fatigue to be a leading cause of many aircraft and railway accidents. In response the Federal Aviation Administration has instituted medical screening for Sleep Apnea for pilots and air traffic controllers. ...

Europe regulator sees November lifting of Boeing 737 MAX flight ban SEPTEMBER 25, 2020 Boeings grounded 737 MAX could receive regulatory approval to resume flying in November and enter service by the end of the year, Europes chief aviation safety regulator said on Friday. For the first time in a year and a half I can say theres an end in sight to work on the MAX, said Patrick Ky, executive director of the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). EASA expects to lift its technical ban not long after the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), probably in November, but national operational clearances needed for individual airlines to resume flying in Europe could take longer, he said. We are looking at November, he said when asked when the technical ban would be lifted. China is expected to take longer to give its own approval, he said, without elaborating. Cologne-based EASA, which regulates air safety in 32 mainly European Union countries, has locked horns with the FAA and ...
Tucson International Airport (TIA), has kicked off plans for implementing energy conservation measures by installing solar canopies.

It will be designed and built by Tucson firm, Barker Morrissey Contracting, from a proposed system featuring an enduring, iconic design powered by industry-best components and will be both aesthetic and practical in terms of construction.. The Federal Aviation Administration has awarded a $5.7 million dollar grant to Tucson Airport Authority to fund the design and construction of the first phase of the project, which will generate about 1 megawatt of power annually and feed into the airports central utility plant and serve the terminal complex. Overall, the project will feature a 2.5 megawatt photovoltaic array of about 20 feet tall over the entire main ...
A new study on the impact of occupational exposures, particularly cosmic radiation, on the health of Air France flight crews is being set up at IRSN, in collaboration with Air France and Public Health France. The SPACE project aims to set up, for the first time in France, a cohort of about 40,000 flight crews in order to study, over a period of more than 40 years, the mortality of this population in relation to their occupational exposures (shift work, breaks in the circadian rhythm and cosmic radiation). SPACE is expected to have several types of impact: to contribute to the improvement of scientific knowledge on the risk factors for cancer among flight crews and also regular travellers exposed to cosmic radiation, to contribute to the consolidation of occupational health and cancer prevention systems, and to provide answers to questions from flight crews on the potential impact of their working conditions on their health ...

Do you consider yourself a serious aviation safety professional? Beyond a significant interest in safety, do you actually develop, integrate or monitor a program? Look around your workspace. Is it littered with magazine articles about Safety Culture or Hazard Tracking or Risk Management? Can you recite the Four Pillars and the Dirty Dozen without a need to refer to notes? If you know the difference between ALARP and IS-BAO, you have been waiting for this book.. The first word in its title describes its purpose. It is a single-source reference for aviation professionals needing a clear understanding of how all those Safety Management parts can be integrated into one unified system. What I really like about the book is its breakdown of the content. Each chapter stands alone as a guide to a specific part of a complete safety system. If you need help developing your metrics or creating top-down support, just flip to that particular chapter. Do you have questions about how to include your maintenance ...
Now Southend has many more flights than a couple of years ago, the airport wants to have control of its immediate airspace(which it had years ago, when it was busier). There is a 12 week consultation at Southend on its plans to introduce controlled airspace around the airport. The consultation started on 20th September and ends on 19th December. Airspace users and local community groups including borough, local and parish councils, are being consulted, though individuals are discouraged from responding, unless they channel their responses through some of the consultee organisations. Currently aircraft are permitted to come within 2.5 miles and 2000 feet of the airport without having to talk to air traffic controllers, which can lead to unplanned alterations to an aircrafts track and possible delays to scheduled aircraft. Controlled Airspace is a defined area of the airspace around an airport where any aircraft must communicate with Air Traffic Control. The final decision over whether to reinstate
AC 120-85 is a 64-page document created by the US FAA (United States Federal Aviation Administration) under the title Air Cargo Operations. Created in response to the US NTSB (United States National Transportation Safety Board) report into the Fine Air 101 crash in 1997, this document is intended to provide guidance to US airlines in establishing their internal operating procedures for all aspects of air cargo operations.. You might well wonder if there is a similar document for passenger operations or for any other aspect of aircraft operations. There may well be but in general, such advisory circulars are only created when the FAA wishes to draw special attention to a particular area of aviation operations.. There are of course, underpinning everything, the general aviation regulations, known in the US as FARs and by similar nomenclature in other countries. However such regulations are always extremely generic and, apart from a few major components such as engines, will provide broad ...

OPINION ♦♦♦. It is the opinion of This Day in Aviation that the Probable Cause of this accident as determined by the National Transportation Safety Board was a political statement. As far back as 1956, with the mid-air collision of a United Air Lines Douglas DC-7 and a Trans World Airlines Lockheed Super Constellation over the Grand Canyon of Arizona, the Civil Aeronautics Board and its successor, the NTSB, had repeatedly placed emphasis on the role of air traffic control (or, the lack thereof) in a number of mid-air collisions, and had been recommending numerous improvements.. TDiA believes that these recommendations were valid.. However, coming to a political conclusion hides the actual cause of the accident. When investigators look for a cause, they evaluate each individual factor. That single factor, which, if it had not occurred, results in no accident taking place-all other factors being the same-is the cause.. In this case, the pilot of the light airplane had filed a Visual Flight ...
