Default heuristic can help crew decision favouring a go-around if unstable

At 1000ft where the crew has to take a decision, what if the default mode is to call for a go-around and if parameters meet the safe criteria, the crew continue to land? Will this be a safer option than the current method which is the reverse of this?

How could two pilots execute an approach on the taxiway with 4 aircrafts with almost 1000 passengers in it. They missed the collision by 60 feet.

Max, NEO or Dreamliner. Names of new technology paradox: mindFly

In the past decade we have witnessed the events involving the B-737 Max, A-320 NEO PW1100 engines and the B-787 battery fires. There have been numerous other minor incidents in the industry too. Every industry faces the challenges of change management. It can be due to introducing a new product or enhancing an existing product. Critical thinking skills and attention will continue to remain the cornerstones of safety. The paradox of technology. Time The two Boeing products had one common factor, time. Airbus had launched its new product to the customers in the form of the A-320 NEO. NEO is…

Aeroflot Superjet. Go-around when against all odds, is it an option?: mindFly

I have a question to all aviators. How many times in your career have you been trained to carry out a go around with a malfunction and/or when the situation is against all odds? This is with the exception of an engine failure. The thought of carrying out a go around with a serious flight control or electrical malfunction coupled with adverse weather is unnerving. The mind influences you to put the aircraft on the ground come what may. Would you act differently if you had the confidence having seen such scenarios before? Preliminary report The preliminary report was accessed…

100% of accidents have Human Factor: mindFly

Introduction Humans, by their very nature, make mistakes. Human error is implicated in 70% to 80% of aviation accidents. (O’Hare, Wiggins, Batt, & Morrison, 1994; Wiegmann and Shappell, 1999; Yacavone, 1993). My views I beg to differ with the basic premise. Human involvement in the chain of events leading to an accident is a fact. There is a 100% involvement of humans in the error chain. Elimination of error is not feasible. Human factors are about designing systems that are resilient to unanticipated events. Training Crew resource management is a training intervention for threat error management. The whole focus has…
