We already know the Drone operator is at fault because he broke multiple regulations This paper will go over the torts in this case and use resources to explain why the drone operator is at fault. These torts involve the drone being operated in a no fly zone, We will also go over the money that the operator would be fined for the reckless behavior. Tort #1 Tresspassing Tresspassing is a big no when it comes to flying a drone. The reason is because it can cause accidents like the one we are talking about now. According to Michael Spanel, "Section 520 of the Second 4 Restatement of Torts suggests that the following factors be considered in determining whether an activity is abnormally dangerous: (a) existence of a high risk of some harm to the person, land or chattels of others; (b) likelihood that the harm that results from it will be great; (c) inability to eliminate the risk by the exercise of reasonable
Aircraft accidents Aircraft accidents are the nightmares for both every pilot and aircraft passengers. Accidents can happen even when you least expect it which makes them even mere frightening. The reasons behind an aircraft accident can vary from situation to another but the main reasons are human error or most of the time it is caused by technical issues. In this essay I will address how accidents can happen which means I will in detail examine how accidents can happen which related to human error, technical issues or even accidents are caused by supernatural phenomena. First of all in my essay I will talk about human errors.
Reason being that the crew could not have fixed the problem fix had been confirmed. When reentry the earth the damage allowed hot atmospheric gases to penetrate and destroy the internal wing structure, which caused the space craft to become unstable and break
She was a very experienced investigator of plane crashes. Funk first tries to put the wreckage of the plane together to understand what caused this horrendous collision. Funk interviews witness while memories are still fresh. She found out that none of the witnesses actually saw the collision happen, they only saw the two planes falling out of the sky. Philip huge a senior investigator, was also assigned to this case, finds out that the Cessna was flown by a student pilot who was under training.
I will explain that there are many factors that led to the accident affecting hundreds of people. The Flight was operated by Air Florida and it was “Delayed by one hour and forty five minutes due to a heavy snowfall which necessitated the temporary closing of the airport” (National transportation safety board ) but it took off anyway at four o’clock in the afternoon, the aircraft stop working in midair twenty seconds after that and started to go down with no power until it hitted the fourteenth bridge and sank in the Potomac river Killing seventy eight people between passengers, crew members and people in the bridge. The rescuers had a lot of trouble taking people out of the river because “Helicopter of the U.S park police aviation was not designed for heavy rescue work but they were decide to do help” (National Geographic Network) and “Terrible traffic in Washington that day made it difficult for rescue workers to reach the scene” (History.com) .

Abstract The accident on McDonnell Douglas DC-9-82, N215AA of 1991 is a good example of an aviation accident that occurred majorly due to human factors. This paper aims to analyze the main causes involving human factors that lead to the crash. The two core factors associated with the accident include; fatigue and situational stress. Both crew members sustained long duty day that exceeding the maximum waking hours. Additionally, the prevailing weather conditions placed them in a stressful environment.
United Airlines Flight 93 Despite the cockpit recordings implying that the passengers fought, overpowered the terrorist and eventually crashed the plane into the ground, people think that the plane was actually shot down. One reason for this theory is that the actual crash site had very little debris, which showed no evidence of a plane crash. All that was left behind was a big crater. Nevertheless, authorities found some debris 10 miles away from the crash site. Which would support this theory, as if the plane was in fact shot it would have started exploding in the air and debris would have been spreed out by 10 miles.
Accidents happen. We’re human, mistakes are very natural. They will always happen, no matter how careful we think we are. In normal everyday life, a mistake or two is not the end of your life. But the thing is, with space, a tiny mistake that is overlooked or forgotten can cause catastrophic consequences.
American Airlines Flight 1420 June 1, 1999, a McDonnel Douglas DC-9-82, dispatched as American Airlines 1420, crashed after it had overran runway 4R, at Little Rock National Airport. The flight claimed the lives of 11 people, including the captain, and 105 passengers received serious or minor injuries, including the first officer and flight attendants (NTSB, 1999). According to the NTSB, this accident was due to pilot error (NTSB, 1999). This report will exam all human interaction as well as performance, utilizing Dr. Scott Shappell’s and Dr. Doug Wiegmann’s HFACS model, so one may find the route cause of the errors, and prevent similar accidents in the future. HFACS Level 4: Organizational Influences Errors aren’t created at the bottom
Although it has been heavily tested and is now safe for humans it is still not risk free from viruses and hacking. There may be potential of a new virus that can manipulate the system and cause damage to the passengers. They can also be easily thwarted by incorrect GPS and bad weather. In fact, majority of the aircraft accidents that take place happen during the switch of control from autopilot mode to the pilot (1). In case of high speed accidents, the car may be programmed to safeguard the passengers which may cause more damage to the pedestrians and people would more likely buy a car that would safeguard them over the others.
