In addition to the bogus flight plan would there be many other SOPs skipped or ignored? Wondering if this a/c had a CVR capacity long enough to record the pre-flight briefing, cross checks, fuel...

FBW

Surely the argument of computers being between pilot and control surfaces has long vanished from relevance. Many modern aircraft cannot be directly hand flown as they are aerodynically unstable by...

Overspeed vs Crazy AoA.
Surely there are too many variables to say which is preferable:
how much energy a/c has, are the engines at idle and how long until they can be safely spooled up without...

Situate, Aviate, Navigate, Communicate

TY safetypee for one of the best posts I have read in a long time. This identifies the root issue. All of these pilots knew how to fly, however they failed to understand their situation, their...

I recall this whilst being considered a very low probability it was address in AF447 BEA final report. They raised the concept of camera's being used to record the PFDs and pilot actions.

Freedom of Speech on Flightdeck

Having read several official accident reports and their transcripts in almost all I see a common factor of poor crew communications. Conversely in successfully averted incidents it appears high...

Automatics

Clearly there is a need for improved training. However these incidents which allegedly have a significant component of pilot error will only support the trend to increased automation. I don't...

Perplexed

I am forced to accept the initial miscommunication "pull down".
What I cannot accept is how the FO, a french pilot would block out the grim similarity with his stick inputs to AF447. Surely FO would...

Cross cockpit comms

One thing that puzzles me is why the CAPT did not take control assertively. He is 100% responsible for a/c. Did he feel FO was more situationally aware? Perhaps another similarity with AF447 is CAPT...

There have been airbus cases where spurious rates of descent and false stall warnings were correctly ignored. However to your point I think it helpful to add a dedicated AoA guage to avoid any...

@Parkfell



It boils down to knowing your a/c and not getting behind its situation.
In both this incident and AF447 the central issue appears to be PF failing to adapt/recognize the a/c...

Holes in the swiss cheese that lined up

If 1 or 2 of these issues had been addressed would it have been just another day at the office:

Lack of training.
Regulatory/airline policy
Solder joint fail
Poor error logging and pattern...

Hacker turns a/c

Someone tell me that these a/c have physically separate networks for flight systems vs entertainment. Did the bean counters save a few $$$'s by using only one network device instead of 2?

NOD


You make a very good point, ultimately it is all about reducing risk. No solution is perfect. At least the sane pilot would have a fighting chance to deliver a knuckle sandwich.

Sanity Check

Are you suggesting a sanity cross check pre-flight?

Cockpit alone time

With such low hours I am wondering if this flight was the first time he had been left alone in the cockpit. All short haul and so not many rest breaks in the air. Some would have had check/training...

Some national regulators did issue a ban on flights e.g. FAA banned all US flights over Ukraine. Some airlines decided to avoid without waiting for regulator e.g. BA. Did Kiev keep commercial flights...

Airbus auto trims with pilots inputs not against. If the automatics degrade then it leaves the trim as is. As far as I have read FAC never trims against pilots inputs. If you try and confuse auto...

To clarify my comment about idle detent; N1 take time to spool up when changing from prolonged idle to TOGA. This is another consideration when a/c is falling out of the sky and flight control is...

Energy Management

My understanding is that kinetic energy is the work done to accelerate the mass of the a/c. This is increased by engine thrust or trading potential energy (losing altitude and claiming the...

From an interview I saw with an airbus test pilot, he said that they only test a stall close to the edge of the envelope with high energy. The AF447 and air asia stall are far more lethal because the...

Stall diagnosis

Failure to identify stall is indeed remarkable. You have highly qualified pilots looking at stall warning lights & sounds, crickets, an PFD pointing up 10 deg, airspeed decaying to below 60knots, vsi...

I take your point about the lack of recent manual flying. This over automation issue has more to it as it affects pilots across a wide range of experience. That said the Captain is the highest...
