  • Safety Management System
    • Abstract: Fred George [nid:7350] Using feedback to fatten safety margins   Hgh-performance aviation organizations set the bar for crew discipline and error prevention by using comprehensive safety management systems (SMS) that trap errors before they can develop into safety risks. The process initially starts by creating a comprehensive flight department operations manual, one that promulgates detailed standard operating procedures as well as general policies. (See “The Flight Department Ops Manual,” B&CA, July 2014, page 44.) read more

  • Ground Pounding
    • Abstract: Reducing handling accidents, aviation’s costly nemesis for aviation insurers’ largest category Is there a way to reduce them?   Like the famed albatross, airplanes may be beautiful and graceful in flight, but let’s face it — they’re just as ungainly as the big, awkward bird on the ground. Imagine designing a car with appendages on either side that extend out wider than the length of the vehicle and a tricycle suspension with a really wide turning radius. Now, drive it around in traffic on really narrow streets and try not to hit anything. Welcome to aircraft ground handling, movement and parking. read more
