This research project is an evaluation of aviation-related accidents related to human factors. The student will denote knowledge and understanding of all 11 program outcomes including but not limited to quantitative reasoning, information literacy, critical thinking, aviation legislation and law, aeronautical science, aviation safety, and aviation management and operations. This research paper will explain human factors, more specifically human error and how it plays a very critical role in aviation-related accidents and more times than none considered the causal reason. The student will take a look at and ratiocinate the human factors as they apply to aviation accidents. The student will provide recommendations to implement, modify, or eradicate
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.
American Airlines Flight 1420: Errors in Decision-Making and Situational Awareness Mariah Cann Embry Riddle Aeronautical University Abstract This case study will focus on the human factor errors involved in American Airlines Flight 1420 and organizational shortcomings by American Airlines and their policies. By using the Human Factors Analysis and Classification System model (HFAC), key human factor failures can be identified. HFACs is used to identify the probable causes of accidents by laying a valid framework to investigators analyzing aviation accidents. The two human factor errors that contributed to the accident were fatigue and situational stress. The organizational failures may not stand out to untrained bystanders.
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) .

Engineering Disasters: Concorde Air France Flight 4950 Crash (2000) Name Student ID Institution Affiliation Introduction Purpose Official reports by France’s Accident Investigation Bureau (BEA, 2001) revealed that on the Tuesday of July 25th, 2000 Concorde Air France Flight 4950 from Paris en route to New York crashed barely two minutes after takeoff from runway 26 at the Roissy Charles de Gaulle Airport. The airplane rammed into a hotel in Gonesse, France, bursting into flames and killing all the 109 passengers on board including the 9 flight crew members, and 4 other ground casualties. This catastrophic incident raised engineering concerns, which beg the following questions: What engineering design flaws led to the disaster? Whose fault was it? What future precautions and safety measures are recommended?
Because of its nature, aviation is extremely sensitive to any disruption. It is the crew who mainly guarantees the aircraft flight safety. Interfering with the crew's duties by unruly behaviour can therefore cause serious disturbance in the operation of the
The human error made by medical worker In the human error classification, Reason (1990) said “Greater understanding of the why of human error is provided by a popular approach based, in part, on the distinction between whether the inappropriate action was intended or not”. For example, the nurse who unintended brought the oxygen tank into the MRI room was considered as one of the human error in knowledge-based mistake, without the training of MRI equipment, she didn’t know that she could not bring the metal materials into the MRI
While Air Florida Flight 90 (aka Palm 90) waited for takeoff, it’s exterior was de-iced with glycerol and water, but according to Ken Kaye, a reporter from Sun Sentinel, “the solution wasn’t as potent as it should have been”. Not having a solution which wasn’t as potent as it should have been, wasn’t the only reason Palm 90 crashed. Ken Kaye also stated that “like most airline accidents, the crash of Air Florida Flight 90 was the result of a chain of events set in motion by Murphy's Law”. Perhaps the biggest mistake the two pilots, Larry Wheaton and Roger Petit, made was failing to turn on the anti-ice system.Not turning on the anti- ice system, prevented the engines from de-frosting and caused incorrect power readings of instruments in the
Including health problems with emission from the plane, and pollution to our environment. This has become a huge situation for people everywhere.Could the airplane become one of the worst inventions mankind has created? To begin with, the airplane viewed from the ground appears to be safe, clean, and efficient. But that’s not the case, that white puffy cloud it leaves
1- Air Canada flight 797. Air Canada Flight 797 was a projected trans-border flight that hovered from Dallas/Fort Worth Global Airport to Montréal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau Global Airport, alongside an intermediate halt at Toronto Pearson Global Airport. On 2 June 1983, the McDonnell Douglas DC-9-32 working the ability industrialized an in-flight fire behind the washroom that range amid the beyond skin and the inner decor panels, filling the plane alongside toxic smoke. The spreading fire additionally blazed across critical mechanical cables that knocked out most of the instrumentation in the cockpit, compelling the plane to redirect to an alternative landing field. Ninety seconds afterward the plane arrived and the doors were opened, the warmth of the fire and new oxygen from the open exit doors crafted flashover conditions, and the plane's inside instantly came to be engulfed in blazes, killing 23 travelers who had yet to evacuate the aircraft.
