Problems in Air Traffic Control and Proposed Solutions
Problems in Air Traffic Control and Proposed Solutions In northern California this summer, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) unintentionally performed it's first operational test of free flight; aviation without direct air traffic control. This was an unintentional experiment because it was a result of a total shut-down of the Oakland Air Route Traffic Control Center (ARTCC). Although Oakland is only the 16th busiest ARTCC, it's responsible for the largest block of airspace of any ATC

Plane Crash
Plane 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

The Bermuda Triangle
The Bermuda Triangle Are the different stories of the Bermuda Triangle true? It is considered one of the biggest mysteries of our time, and nobody knows for sure if it is an actual phenomenon or just a made-up story. There are many different theories floating around the world trying to explain the unusual disappearances of planes and ships within the Bermuda Triangle. Could it be UFOs or a sea monster in the ocean? What if there were pockets of gas lodged deep in the ocean floor that caused ship

Deregulation
Deregulation 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, V

The extent to which wind shear presents a hazard to aircraft has been
The extent to which wind shear presents a hazard to aircraft has been well documented in the last ten years. Since some wind shear can occur in otherwise relatively good weather, the most hazardous kind, a microburst, is associated with rain showers and thunderstorms even thought the parent storm may not be discernible. It was not until the early 1970's that the National Transportation Safety Board was able to obtain the level of data form flight recorders to quantify wind shear. This data beca

I. What is Virtual Reality The term Virtual Reality (VR) is used by many different people with many meanings. There are some people to whom VR is a specific collection of technologies, that is a Head Mounted Display, Glove Input Device and Audio. Some other people stretch the term to include conventional books, movies or pure fantasy and imagination. The NSF taxonomy mentioned in the introduction can cover these as well. However, my personal preference, and for purposes of this paper, we restri

What a nice day. A balmy sixty degrees out. Children are outside playing ball. What a wonderful time of the year this is. I just hope that when mom opens up her Christmas present tomorow, she likes it. Scientists have proven that the Earth gets hotter and hotter each year. More and more people are born each day and the population of the Earth is continuously growing. The more and more people that populate the Earth, and the United States of America in general will require more and more energy.

One of the things associated with volcanos erupting other than lava and rocks is pollution. Volcanic pollution is generaly in three forms, gases, ashes, and cinders. Volcanic gases are emitted during erutions and periods of inactivity. In an eruption the gas relesed is mostly(80%) water vapor(H20), with smaller amounts of sulfur dioxide(S02) and carbon dioxide(C02). These gases rise and can harm or depleate the ozone layer. Volcanic ashes are composed of pulverized rocks and accompanied by a nu

The FAA The FAA has hindered the development of airline safety because of its policy of safety, its regulation of the airline industry, and it needs to be separate from the Department of Transportation. The FAA has hindered the development of airline safety because of its policy of safety. Part of its policy is the cost-benefit rule, which was an executive order issued by President Ronald Reagan in February 1981. This rule stated that the FAA could issue new rules only if they could show the pot

A 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 FLIGHT Crew Resource Management, Crew Coordination, In Relation to Aircraft Accidents By R. Jason Dagenhart [pic] 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

These stories were posted to Twitter under the hashtag #smugeog3332. Each class the new stories were explained by whomever had posted it, the story was then discussed amongst the whole class. These stories share multiple common themes as they relate to the broader topics of
