Creative Story: The Crash
It was a calm sunny day in mid-January as Bob climbed into his plane to
go for a late afternoon flight over the mountains. He started the engine and it
gave a weak squeal as it turned over. Bob thought nothing of this as it happens
when it is cold out, but it was more than he could ever know. He taxied his
plane to the end of the runway and applied full power. The plane began to
accelerate slowly at first but quickly gained speed, and just as fast it leaped
into the air.
About twenty minutes into the flight the plane gave a shudder as a
strong gust of wind shoved at the small plane. In minutes the sun disappeared
and snow took its place. Bob\'s peaceful afternoon flight had just become a
Bob attempted to turn the small plane back to the airport but the wind
would not allow it. The wind had it\'s way with the plane until that squeal came
back to haunt the young man inside. With a shudder and a bang the plane\'s prop
stopped. Within seconds the stall horn began to blow and the plane rolled onto
it\'s right side and plummeted to the snow covered ground.
Bob awoke, not knowing how long he was out, hoping that some one had
received his frantic calls for help. After a day he decided to try and hike out,
he took everything he could carry. He made good distance during the day but at
nightfall he knew it was over; the temperature had fallen below negative fifty
The rescuers sent out search parties and finally found him in his
sleeping bag next to a burnt out fire. They had been looking for weeks, this is
what they had expected.

A Technical Analysis of Ergonomics and Human FactoA Technical Analysis of Ergonomics and Human Factors in Modern Flight Deck Design I. Introduction Since the dawn of the aviation era, cockpit design has become increasingly complicated owing to the advent of new technologies enabling aircraft to fly farther and faster more efficiently than ever before. With greater workloads imposed on pilots as fleets modernize, the reality of he or she exceeding the workload limit has become manifest. Because of the unpredictable nature of man, this problem is

HUMAN FACTORS IN FLIGHTHUMAN FACTORS IN FLIGHT Crew Resource Management, Crew Coordination, In Relation to Aircraft Accidents Abstract In this paper you will learn how Crew Resource Management came into effect and the reasons behind the need of CRM to further prevent accidents from happening. I will discuss the Communication aspect of CRM, how Crew Coordination is a very important program for multi-crew cockpits, and should be taken very seriously. Finally, I will present some examples of what happens when a break dow
AlcoholismAlcoholism Running Head: ALCOHOLISM Alcoholism: Causes, Effects, and Treatment Possibilities Alcoholism is a wide-ranging and complex disease that heavily plagues society, especially in the United States, today. The symptoms are many, as are the causes and the effects. Alcoholism may be defined as a pattern of drinking in which harmful consequences result for the drinker, though observers have not agreed upon one specific definition of the term. There are two types of drinkers. The first type, t
AviationAviation The airline industry has been subject of intense price competition since it was deregulated, and the result has been a number of new carriers which specialize in regional service and no-frills operations. These carriers typically purchase older aircraft and often operate outside the industry-wide computerized reservations system. In exchange for these inconveniences, passengers receive low fares relative to the industry as a whole. This research examines two low fare air carriers, ValuJ
Plane CrashPlane Crash Instructor: Greg Alston Abstract This paper examines the in-flight separation of the number two pylon and engine from a Boeing 747-121 shortly after takeoff from the Anchorage International Airport on March 31, 1993. The safety issues discussed focus on the inspection of Boeing 747 engine pylons, meteorological hazards to aircraft, the lateral load-carrying capability of engine pylon structures, and aircraft departure routes at Anchorage International Airport during turbulent weather
