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:. ...
Contact: Dan Hubbard, (202) 783-9360, [email protected] Washington, DC, March 6, 2014 - The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) joined a coalition of aviation groups this week in calling for swift passage of U.S. Senate legislation aimed at bringing transparency to any decision by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to implement mandatory testing of pilots and air traffic controllers for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) before receiving a medical certificate.. As aviation community stakeholders, we are writing to express our support for S.1941, commonsense bipartisan legislation to address the sweeping [FAA] proposal to change the policy on sleep apnea for pilots and air traffic controllers without the benefit of a rulemaking process, reads the March 4 letter to senators. Further, we wish to express our collective hope that passing this important bill in a timely fashion will be a priority for the U.S. Senate in the coming weeks.. The FAA announced in November 2013 its ...
If the GOPs plan becomes a reality, the air-traffic control system would be removed from the auspices of the Federal Aviation Administration and turned into a nongovernmental nonprofit, with a board of directors including representatives for airlines, regulators and consumer advocates.. The National Air Traffic Controllers Association, a union representing almost 20,000 air-traffic controllers and other aviation safety-related professionals, supported Shusters 2016 legislation.. We hope you will join us in efforts to keep the U.S. National Airspace the safest and most efficient system in the world and available to all aviation stakeholders.. Airlines contend that the FAAs NextGen program to modernize the air traffic system is taking too long and has produced too few benefits.. Trump said of air traffic controllers, Under our plan they will have more financial security, professional opportunity, and far superior equipment - the best equipment anywhere in the world. If you make it harder for ...
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, ...
If it is military, having to work in remote areas with minimal medical help will be the norm. In both the cases, working hours can be erratic and extended shifts. The personnel are also easily exposed to contagious diseases. As such physical and mental alertness in aviation need not be over emphasized.Medical StandradsThe conditions that may be either impairments or diseases mentioned under each category are considered disqualifications for individuals working in an aviation environment. .. (See appendix 1) The aviation personnel are expected to perform duties and provide services concerning aviation safety in relation to their vocation degree, qualifications, license and rating.

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 Control (ATC) is a safety-critical system which places high demands on air traffic controllers (ATCO) multitasking abilities. Having the requisite information for well-informed decision making is central, and as new technologies such as remote towers demand an increase in capacity, efficiency, and safety there is a need for research that informs system development. Adopting a systems perspective, Distributed Cognition is an approach for investigating system functioning, and Resilience Engineering is a way of observing safety factors in everyday work. The purpose of this study is to understand how air traffic controllers work from a distributed cognition perspective, and manage safety in everyday tasks from a resilience perspective. Six observations and six interviews were conducted in a Swedish control tower. The data was analyzed using Distributed Cognition for Teamwork (DiCoT) and Resilience markers (REM), which both focus on the transformation and propagation of information. The ...
Nine aviation organizations, including AOPA, have joined forces to express support for a Senate bill that would compel the FAA to use the rulemaking process before enacting any new policies regarding sleep disorders. An identical measure passed last month in the House.. The letter regarding S. 1941 asked senators to pass the bill in a timely fashion and noted that, while the signatories universally support efforts to combat fatigue in the aviation industry, the FAAs original proposal would have been costly and delivered no clear safety benefits. It is essential that stakeholders be treated as partners in order to effect positive change in aviation safety, the letter added.. The Senate bill was introduced by Sens. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) and Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), both AOPA members and members of the Senate General Aviation Caucus. Identical legislation introduced by House Aviation Subcommittee Chairman Frank LoBiondo (R-New Jersey) and Rep. Rick Larsen (D-Washington), ranking member of the ...

The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) is one of the EUs decentralised bodies. Based in Cologne, it has specific regulatory and executive tasks in the field of civil aviation safety and environmental protection. The Agency prepares draft rules, provides technical, scientific and administrative support, conducts standardisation inspections and investigations and certifies aviation products. The scope of its competences might be extended in the framework of the revision of its Basic Regulation, which the Commission has announced will form part of a wider package of proposals on aviation, anticipated for later this year.
The Federal Aviation Administration has started to deploy a NASA-developed tool for air traffic controllers to manage the national airspace.. Air traffic controllers will use the tool handle airspace that spans five miles from an airport and 35 miles beyond through the use of the Terminal Sequencing and Spacing software, NASA said Tuesday.. We expect that it will enhance existing technologies that we use to efficiently handle traffic in the airport environment, said Edward Bolton Jr., assistant administrator for NextGen at the FAA.. The software is also designed to help pilots use flight deck automation to streamline runway paths and to implement modern arrival procedures.. The FAA plans to deploy tool at nine airports in Phoenix, Houston, Atlanta, Seattle, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Charlotte, Denver and Los Angeles between 2018 and 2022.. ...
While information on aircraft noise is limited, the studies and data GAO reviewed suggest that aircraft cabin and cockpit noise levels likely do not exceed the noise exposure standard established by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). None of the studies GAO reviewed, which included eight that measured noise in the cabin and four that measured noise in the cockpit, found levels that clearly exceeded the OSHA standard, though two of the studies found that noise over long durations in certain types of aircraft may reach the more restrictive exposure limit published by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). OSHA and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) have received few complaints from crewmembers related to aircraft noise levels. For example, since assuming authority to enforce its noise standard in the cabin, OSHA has received two complaints related to ambient aircraft noise out of more than 600 complaints related to commercial aviation. No ...

Organizations are mutually dependent, yet also independent. On the one hand, they need the support of others to realize their objectives. On the other hand, each organization has a certain amount of freedom to decide whether or not to contribute to industry developments. Considering this multifaceted situation, the decision-making process between organizations is crucial. When it stagnates, deadlocks occur. All examples took place in the Netherlands aviation sector. In aviation, narrow margins exist with respect to safety, economy and the environment. Therefore solutions to deadlocks are crucial. Furthermore, Amsterdams Schiphol Airport has established itself as a major European hub, in spite of a relatively small domestic market and tight environmental regulations. This makes the Netherlands aviation sector a particularly interesting case for studying deadlocks. Jasper Daams is a senior manager at Air Traffic Control, The Netherlands. During his career in aviation he worked in various ...

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 ...

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. ...

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
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 ...
