Aviation Safety culture report, pilot fatigue and feedback are key issues.

Among the key findings of the work, 51 per cent of pilots surveyed reported that fatigue was not taken seriously by their airline, and 28 per cent of pilots felt that they had insufficient numbers of staff to carry out their work safely.

A total of 7,239 pilots from across European nations participated in the European pilots’ perceptions of safety culture in European Aviation survey, approximately 14 per cent of Europe’s total commercial pilot population, in the largest ever survey of commercial pilots on safety culture.

Safety culture is the way things are done in an organisation. There has to be a good working relationship between the management and the employees in order to establish a good safety culture which can be in the generative stage at the highest level, thus being a win win situation for both.

AirIndia Express Obstacle Contact After Takeoff:mindFly

Prima facie, the AirIndia Express incident is intriguing. The aircraft on the left is the one involved in the incident of contact with obstacle after takeoff. 1.

Passing 130kts, the aircraft’s acceleration seems to have slowed down considerably to reach 150 kts . 3. 76kt – 135 kt 3395′ covered 135kt- 150kt 3049′ covered Acceleration rate dropped by a substantial 62% after passing 125 kts G/S. 4.

My Aircraft Collection @mindFly

My First Aircraft and the most difficult to fly. Life became easier after i learn’t to fly this one. The Trinidad TB-20 at IGRUA. First exposure to modern day cockpit. First twin engine aircraft experience. Well, two engines means more thrust but loss of an engine means more sweat. The mouse that roared. A noisy little bird. All manual flying. Fully automated. The change to present. Flew the first flight for IndiGo. Launch Pilot and Chief Pilot Training. Learn’t how training could transform people and organisations.   Boeing 777, simply the best. Learn’t to relax and fly. A very practical…
