Aircraft lessors could provide unique data to SMS and ASIAS, which would help understand the meta data and the solutions to the carrier’s unique problems.
Against all odds, Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) has raised its safety performance. It’s great news that this segment of aviation is making significant strides towards safer flight.
A fault in the battery can cause a fire. Even if a fire starts elsewhere, a lithium battery makes for formidable fuel. When a fire spreads from cell to cell within a lithium-ion battery, it can burn at 1,100 degrees Fahrenheit.
Sean Elliott, EAA’s VP of Advocacy & Safety, met with FAA officials to expand on EAA’s success of its supplemental type certificate to install a non-certified Dynon primary flight display in their certified aircraft. The meeting evolved into how to utilize the risked-based certification regime to low-risk non-certified safety- and performance-related equipment on certified aircraft using the Parts Manufacturing Process.
Two stories suggest that the FAA’s new SMS safety program, which has been heralded as reducing safety risks, might be an effective tool to address this WAVE of problems in hazmat shipping.
Uber plans to use a VTOL aircraft in intracity taxi operations and has published a study that lays out the map from vision to realization by 2028. The proposal’s ideas for using aerial vehicles to diminish the ground traffic density have awesome potential.
The Pence plane being mired in the EMAS (Engineered Materials Arresting Systems) arresting material highlights a number of important safety advances and the result of collaboration.
Boeing’s new airplane safety data project expects a 140-fold increase in the annual data generated that will contribute to both developing integrated solutions and reducing the cost of operating and manufacturing. As Boeing initiates this project, SMS experts should be included in the design team.
