 Talk:Accidents and incidents in aviation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The article lists a number of current accidents which, while I don't wish to diminish the tragedy of the events, will probably in time come to be not seen as all that "well-known".
The accident investigation concluded that pressurization was gradually lost, causing hypoxia, which is insidious and hard to detect by those experiencing it.
One RFC summary admonished that ‘accidents during the last three months of 1917 cost £317 10s 6d - money down the drain, and sufficient to buy new gaiters and spurs for each and every pilot and observer in the service!’ A statement on flight safety pronounced at the time clearly outlined the problem.

Council Directive 94/56/EC of 21 November 1994 establishing the fundamental principles governing the investigation of civil aviation accidents and incidents [Official Journal L 319 of 12.12.1994].
The purpose of this Directive is to improve air safety by facilitating the expeditious holding of investigations, the sole objective of which is the prevention of future accidents and incidents.
It applies to investigations into civil aviation accidents and incidents which have occurred in the territory of the European Community or involving aircraft registered in a Member State or operated by an undertaking established in a Member State, when such investigations are not carried out by another State.

 OR/MS Today - August 1997 - Aviation
Researchers routinely analyze accident and incident data and use the information to build practical tools that are useful in solving aviation safety problems.
Factors that influence pilot error accidents and incidents can be broken down into two major categories as depicted in Figure 1: those that are individual (internal to the pilot) and those that are situational (external to the pilot).
As an example, one published gender study in aviation [3] was criticized because it used a simple approach that failed to control for recent flying hours, a measure of exposure of pilots to risk.

 Communications Related Incidents in General Aviation Dual Flight Training (ASRS Directline # 10)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
Although flight instruction, overall, is one of the safest operations in General Aviation, according to 1995 accident statistics, there was a notable concentration of fatalities and accidents during dual instruction: the only fatal go-around accident, four of the five fatal maneuvering accidents, and five out of seven non-fatal maneuvering accidents occurred during dual instruction.
Incident reports selected for the study had to directly reference the presence of a flight instructor onboard who was actively conducting dual flight instruction or a flight review.
Consistent with the numbers of incidents in the study set that occurred on or near airports, and at low altitudes, communications-related incidents were most prevalent during the approach/descent phases (167 citations, 47 percent) and landing phase (103 citations, 29 percent) of flight.

In addition to investigating accidents and incidents, the ATSB investigates safety deficiencies based on occurrence trends that could lead to a future accident.
For example, the investigation into aviation fuel contamination affecting thousands of smaller aircraft at the end of 1999, could have led to a serious accident and highlighted a range of safety deficiencies in global aviation fuel standards and refining.
The objective of investigating accidents and incidents is to prevent the occurrence of future accidents and not for the purposes of apportioning blame or liability.

 Study: Design Shortcomings Play A Prominent Role in Accidents Air Safety Week - FindArticles
The root cause of more than half of aviation accidents can be traced to design deficiencies, according to a new study by the Eurocontrol Experimental Center in France.
The study contradicts the widespread belief that pilot error is the predominant cause of aviation accidents and nearly triples a Boeing estimate that improved design would be an appropriate accident prevention strategy in only 20 percent of 230 accidents the giant manufacturer examined.
We focus here on the 35 aviation accidents that were the subject of the study.

 Human Factors Intervention Strategies to Prevent Aircraft Accidents   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
Problem: The objective is to reduce the incidence and severity of aviation accidents and incidents by formulating changes to human behavior which contribute to those adverse outcomes.
Define "accident" or "incident" in terms of relative outcomes, which are irrelevant for identifying data significance or analyzing processes leading to the outcomes.
Incident investigation affords opportunities to obtain first-hand data directly from participants, including how they perceived deviations from plans, diagnosed effects of deviations, evaluated and selected among alternatives, and evaluated consequent intervention actions and their results; in short, the entire process by which the incipient accident was mitigated to achieve an acceptable outcome.

 Aero 08 - The Role of Human Factors in Improving Aviation Safety
Because improving human performance can help the industry reduce the commercial aviation accident rate, much of the focus is on designing human-airplane interfaces and developing procedures for both flight crews and maintenance technicians.
Failure to follow procedures is not uncommon in incidents and accidents related to both flight operations and maintenance procedures.
An example is the company’s participation with the aviation industry on a takeoff safety training aid to address rejected takeoff runway accidents and incidents.
