  • OPINION: Aviation must address risk within the cockpit


    ​The Germanwings Airbus A320 loss, it seems, was another deliberate act by a pilot. That statement is not intended to imply that this is becoming commonplace – because that is far from true – but the very fact that there have been several deliberate acts of destruction by pilots, even if over many years, makes it clear that the issue needs to be addressed.

  • ANALYSIS: Air France, Malaysia Airlines losses prompt rethink on flight data

    News | 25 Mar 2015 14:59 | David Learmount

    ​Calgary-based communications specialist Flyht did not need events like the loss of Air France flight 447 or Malaysia Airlines MH370 to persuade it that airlines’ connectivity with their aircraft could beneficially be improved. It had been producing intelligent on-board satellite communications systems since 2003, and if either or both those aircraft had been fitted with one of these, the airline operations departments – and emergency services - would have had a great deal of instant information about the nature of the anomaly the aircraft and crew faced, and an accurate picture of the aircraft’s location.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-Air-France-Malaysia-Airlines-losses-prompt-rethink-on-flight-data-410137/
