Incident: Wings AT72 at Ambon on Jul 3rd 2020, Failure of All Instruments
"A. Wings Eighteen, seventy, two or eighteen, seventy, two dash. Two, one to. At Ambon, which is in Indonesia was flying from Ambon to Babbo with forty nine passengers and three crew D my Indonesia accent. Yeah. I think you make an APP. I am was in the initial climb out of Ambon Putnam, Laura Airport's runway to just when just after becoming airborne all display units, standby instruments, communication and multifunction control display unit failed. All of it. The landing gear lever not good. No landing gear lever could not be retracted. Climbing through about two thousand feet the display units one and three partially recovered showing speed and altitude indications again, and about three thousand feet communication and remaining displaying its intermittently recovered and the landing gear retracted. They put their landing gear lever up and then finally goes. Okay. Yeah. Sure. You're up. You sure. It wasn't doing a Microsoft update or something might have been. So. I'm thinking. If this were instrument meteorological conditions. I believe we will be reading about the accident and terrible tragic crash of this flight however could easily be yeah without any insurance when you're going to do not ways up, right. Thankfully the weather was not quite as bad. I mean it wasn't perfect, but it wasn't IMC apparently. and they were able to maintain. Reference to the. Queues outside to keep the airplane flying straight and level and climbing all stuff aircraft stop the climate four thousand feet position for return to runway for about thirty minutes after departure but went around and enter to hold at seven thousand feet. The aircraft subsequently landed back on runway four, one hour fifty minutes past. Departure. In Asia Cayenne KT which I guess is there investigatory agency rated the occurrence a serious incident? Yeah. Open an investigation. There were no injuries and the aircraft sustained minor damage doesn't really say. How I can recall. Let's see. Then they go into a little bit more detailed by the way this is from the aviation. Excuse me. Aviation Herald. Let's see the weather during the situation was raining and the ground visibility was six kilometers. So you know wasn't. Great with not great. Let's see the. Starting process of the engines was normal when the aircraft taxied in lined up for runway to to. The aircraft took off and after airborne, the pilot verified the idol gate lever engaged I don't know what that is something to do with props. I guess suddenly all five display units and the integrated electronic standby instrument i. e s I went blank and the VHF radios burr off. the pilot glance to the overhead panel several lights eliminated. Consisting of the shed light on the D. C. Service utility busts, the available light on the external power push buttons. That problem they. Hit a great big generated. Along. With the we're just getting of course Pack lavatory detection engine boost. Hey we have a lavatory, we detected there. during the Situa- we just talked about that the pilot did not have flight instruments as reference for flight therefore, the pilot flew visually. about one minute. So everything came back and let's see why is it that they ended up holding for a while they run some checklist or something that the deal oh, I think he was waiting for the weather to improve. A bit before they came in for their landing. Yeah. Sensible. Relying, his attitude indicators. And other instruments. Yeah. Urinate Visual Reference Yeah. That was smart. So you know you'd think that was this the airplane that was kind of Pretty new or was that another one lows? Let's see Oh. August fourth twenty seventeen. Yeah. So it's Relatively, new airplane Not, sure. Exactly. What happened there some kind of electrical. Weirdness apparently yeah. I mean a supply problem but the thing that really concerns me as if you get a supply problem to you main instrument panels. Avis or whatever type of aircraft urine you would expect perhaps to lose some. But the one thing that should you should always bail rely on is you standby instruments they should be from a completely separate power sauce. Often. Just connected almost directly to the battery so that regardless of what else you've lost, you've got something to go on to help fly the airplane. the fact that he lost his signed by insurance as well. makes me seriously concerned about the architecture, the electrical system of of this aircraft. If, they find a full of manages to take out. So many buzzes by all buses that they also lose their same standby instruments that for me is a major concern. Yeah. I'm wondering if if that was something about the way, the electrical system was designed and manufactured or maybe. There was some kind of maintenance done to the airplane and they didn't connect all the bits and bobs correctly. I don't know I saw. The aircraft should be so capable on the ground before they get on something incorrect deep rooted of self diagnosing electrical problem If they wouldn't have got to have on, they had known that they had a major potential right room with their instruments. Sure. So this is just It happens. On a bus of had some problems in the pasta with unexpected glitches which have taken out all the display units but never have I heard of an Airbus having a problem with standby simultaneously that that is just nine national that is not supposed to happen. Ever. But did apparently in this case, and thankfully, the weather was good enough for them to maintain control their come. We had some pundits who had enough skill to bail to continue to fly the airplane the even relatively poor visibility with. Right around which meant horizon, the visual horizon would have been indistinct. They managed to interpret what was happening to the aircraft in their Themselves and not get fooled and not getting a situation where they lost control. So fantastic
High desert flower farming in Arizona with Aishah Lurry of Patagonia Flower Farm
"Was thinking about you all week thinking, how is she farming when it's over a one hundred degrees so give us sort of a snapshot of your farm and like how do you cope with those conditions? Well, let me tell you first of all, we're in what's called the high desert where about four thousand feet above sea level. So we're in the mountain. Okay. So near probably always consistently ten degrees cooler than Tucson in almost fifteen degrees cooler than Phoenix. So settle a little secret about where you are is because of allegation exactly now it's hot outside it's a little hot, but you know it works in it's funny because one of the benefits about living here it does snow. We get snow in the winter, but it's usually gone by noon our ground never freezes. So the soil is always workable all and very rarely have like a hard frost. So if you think of like I, go up in Boston, it would start to get colder and colder nine pm pm and that's when the coldest would happen. But here the coldest time it seems like is early in the morning three or five. In the sun rises in warm things up in usually. So is just a click fraud so that can damage some plants but for the most part, we have no problem. So I don't know and I I just I guess, I have the desire to grow flowers GonNa make it happen or the variances is what's crazy is that it can be like ninety five degrees during the day and then in the thirties at night. It's crazy I mean I was thinking when you talked about snowing in the morning at least you're getting precipitation where other parts of Arizona are not getting precipitation. So even though it snow, it becomes the moisture the roots need that's in. It's wonderful when the snow slowly melts in and gets into the soil, you really can't beat that. while. So give us snapshot of Patagonia Flower Farm, and of course I pick a Patagonia as the clothing, but it's actually the name of a town and I believe a mountain somewhere, right? Yes. In it's actually pronounced Pentagon Yep. Okay Not like the brand to girl. No. So it's very hilly. We got a lot of grasslands here Yes. So it's really really beautiful. A lot of people think of Arizona and they think of Oh. It's everything's GonNa be dry. We've got quite a bit of green going on Yeah. It's really a beautiful town the Pentagon, yet self only has about a thousand people that that live here Old Mining town in it's quite a lot of retire. You can imagine a lot of artists, letter retirees, a lot of women. So it's an interesting sweets out. Wow. That's I wanNA visit. That sounds really wonderful. Yeah and is there much agriculture they're like. Are. You a lone ranger to use the Weser your lot. Of course. Now, a lot of people are gardening. You know it's funny because there is A. Organization here in town that I work very very closely with called Borderland Restoration. So they have a big greenhouse here where they sell native plants in the harvest seeds germinate the season, create more plans to restore the over you know. Overworked will say off. Areas of. Of. Southern Arizona. So so yeah. So. There are few. Let me think. So, before I moved here like years before there was a A Dalia grower here believe it or not, and I know that they must have had a lot of shade because we need the shape of the Dahlia's but But yeah. So a little bit here and there but I think borderlands nursery is the biggest like grower right now and it is mostly native Oh. That's so interesting. So your what's the size and scale of of your farm and give us a snapshot of what all the pieces to the puzzle there. Okay. So. I am what is called a micro farm about or thousand square feet, and I'm growing things very tightly together and I. You know I took 'em a Florette alumni I took her class in twenty seventeen. So I follow a lot of her protocols and the only differences I do a no till I keep the landscape fabric down and Yes. So so that's if I do the landscape fabric I've got who those short tunnels I don't have a greenhouse yet, but one day. And yes, I have an area where I'm doing mostly perennials and then I have my annual and at borderlands has been so gracious of allowing me to use a quite about fifteen hundred square feet where I've been growing sunflowers in in the ground or undercover know in the ground vendor landscape fabric on their property warring. Yeah. But I love it that like you've been entrepreneurial enough to figure out how to. Access land that wasn't being utilized, but you knew would be perfect for some flowers. Eight. Wow.
Will the Fires That Made Centralia a Ghost Town Ever Go Out?
"The smallest municipality in Pennsylvania is Centralia a former mining community located about two hours north west of Philadelphia. Records tell US had one thousand, four, hundred and thirty five residents in the year nineteen sixty. Today fewer than ten people still live there. The US Postal. Service revoked and trailer Zip Code in two thousand two and the local portion of state route sixty one was permanently closed off nine years before that. We can't blame. The areas decline on the usual socioeconomic suspects. Its problems run deeper literally since at least nineteen sixty to a coal seam fire has been smoldering right below the town. Yes, in. The Earth has been smoking. An ash has been raining down for over fifty years. No one knows exactly how the coal fire got started, but whatever set the thing off this long lived. Blaze isn't some kind of one off luke. Naturally occurring coal deposits are called seems in the mining industry, and wherever such veins occur whole seem fires like the one under Centralia may break out and commonly do. China's three thousand mile or five thousand kilometer coal mining belt is notorious for its seemed fires a so as a town in India where fires have claimed about forty one million tons of coal since nineteen eighteen. We spoke by email with a new TMA per cash, a geologist at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. She said the issue is more prevalent in areas. Where coal was extracted in the past with limited efforts to ensure that the whole left, the extraction was filled up. She explained that mines that don't provide structural support to keep ground from collapsing. Likewise risk seem fire outbreaks. Granted humans aren't always responsible. Though down in new, south Wales Australia, there's a famous coal seam that's been burning for six thousand years straight scientists think it was first ignited by an ancient brushfire or lightning strike. A coal doesn't need much encouragement to catch fire under the right circumstances, the material can actually light itself ablaze through spontaneous combustion. We also spoke by with research geologist Alain Coker. He explained the decomposition of Pyrite President in coal produces heat, and in some cases, the self heating can start the coal on fire. This is a problem even where coal is transported long distances and ships. By most accounts, Centralia great fire began at a dump near the local odd fellows cemetery on May, twenty seventh of nineteen, sixty two. This landfill was intentionally set ablaze was six volunteer firefighters, standing by. It was all part of a yearly cleanup effort by the local government. Controlled Burns were popular garbage disposal technique back then, but things didn't always go according to plan. Perhaps this fire ran deeper into the trash than anybody realized if so, it could have spread through the refuse and entered the nearest coal mine pit with no one being the wiser. Than again, be the town. Government had nothing to do with it. Some have argued that different garbage fire at the same site. A lit by an unidentified truck driver is what really sealed Centralia fate. Another less popular theory claims the coal seam fire started all the way back in the Great Depression and went unextinguished for decades before the nineteen sixties gave it a new lease on life. Regardless. The inferno made itself right at home, sweeping through mine tunnels and coal seams, flames descended as far as three hundred feet, ninety meters below the ground, sometimes nearing temperatures of one, thousand, three hundred fifty degrees, Fahrenheit or seven hundred thirty Celsius. According to an investigation in two thousand twelve has a tway's underlying. Some four hundred acres or sixty hectares of land, had been touched by the blaze at sometime or other. Coker said uncontrolled coalfires have all the potential environmental impacts of burning coal for power generation with none of the benefits in addition to emitting carbon dioxide, trace metals, such as mercury and harmful. Fine particles are emitted. Per, cash noted that methane and sulfur dioxide are also common and so distinctive that just talking about these fires virtually floods her with memories of the sent. To this day, smoke rises from the earth through fishers around Centralia. Meanwhile, the terrain has become perilously unstable over time. Her cash said these fires are dangerous as land can suddenly collapsed or sink as the fire just eats up the ground underneath such collapses can damaged houses roads. Train tracks etc.. That's why Pennsylvania closed off four thousand feet, or about one thousand two hundred meters of route sixty one back in nineteen, ninety-three subterranean pillars held up the pavement, were destroyed or weakened by the flames, making the roadway totally unsuitable for motorists. So Wilson Trail is fire ever burn out? Extinguishing so-far haven't paid off. Between nineteen sixty to nineteen eighty-two assorted government agencies spent seven million dollars fighting. This entrails a qualifier openings sealed trenches were dug, and the minds were stuffed with non-combustible. And crushed rocks, but nothing worked. Nearly all of Centralia former residents are long gone. Many took advantage of a forty two million dollar tax payer funded relocation initiative, which saw five hundred buildings destroyed. The final holdouts have been granted permission to spend the rest of their lives in the town as per eight thousand thirteen settlement with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. According to the state's Department of Environmental, protection the fire might keep on raging for over a hundred years yet to come. But as bad as they can get coal seam, buyers aren't invincible. Kosh said good policies on mining safety and reclamation go a long way as preventative measure, if a fire does start taking quick action to contain it by isolating the fire, dousing the fire, cooling the area and continued monitoring to ensure that the fire does not start again are important measures. Centralia? Hellish effect made it part of the inspiration for the two thousand six horror film silent. The departure from the video game series that it was adapted from. And over the past thirty odd years town Centralia not silent hill has become an unlikely tourist destination. One former attraction was the abandoned stretch of route sixty one dubbed the graffiti highway at attracted masses of street artists who added a rainbow of cartoons and signatures to the pavement. However in two thousand twenty, the corporation that owns the undrivable road, had covered up with piles of dirt. Dissuade visitors from swinging by during the covid nineteen pandemic.

Gabrielle Palmas: Surviving a Midair Collision
"Thanks for joining us. Thanks for having me. You were in an interesting situation and you and I were Were chatting about it not too many people have survived a mid air you did. Can you tell us all about that absolutely so thankfully not many three hundred? Our pilots have experienced talking to the FAA and the NTSB but In October twenty twelve. I found myself in that exact situation to give some background. I fly out of Phoenix and a few different airports here where we have some of the best flying weather in the United States and in the world so with that comes a whole bunch of traffic air traffic. We have eight general aviation airports within thirty nautical miles of each other. And there's a lot of international students here with training academies and things tend to get busy when it's a beautiful day outside a very busy area. You've got all the airport you mentioned you. Of course got Phoenix International. And just outside of that. You've got Luke Air Force Base which is a training base for the Air Force. So it is a busy area. Everybody trying to take advantage of that beautiful Arizona weather and along with that. We have very limited approaches that we can do when it comes to training. So there's only one I alas in the area that were really allowed to navigate by and the only other two are at Phoenix Sky Harbor and over it Gateway Airport so along with that we have a lot of intense training traffic heading down south to this one particular airport. Kasa grind and their sister when were transitioning through these areas on top of that we have practice areas so it gets to be a little crazy when it comes to all of these training academy airplanes in one spot. So there I was. I was up on a training flight with my chief pilot on a stage. Check to progress to my next step of training in my instrument and as we were flying and transitioning out of the practice area and heading toward the airport for practice approach. We were in that scary spot where you're not talking to either frequency yet. You're in the process of changing your in the process of getting yourself situated for an approach. So there's a lot happening. I was under the hood at the time and my chief pilot reached out for the controls and turned to the aircraft and dove down as fast as he could and we ended up hitting something and my initial thought was. Maybe we hit an airplane. But I'm thinking birds. Birds are probably going to be the best scenario here right birds. It's fine just birds and he told me calmly. I need you to take your hood off and I need you to look around to see if you see them so there was with the thought process of. Oh my gosh. We hit another airplane with people inside of it. Wow that's another level of intensity there you're under the hood you feel an impact. The instructor says take your hood off and now you take the hood off. You're just trying to get total laissez on on now having vision. And where are you? And I can't imagine that it was a fear of looking out to the right side. I can tell you that. Why is that where you felt the thump? Come from yes okay. The impact was from the right side of the wing. We lost three feet of our wing and a Piper Warrior and had no aileron control whatsoever after that. So not only. Were we trying to see if the other party survived? We were also trying to figure out. What do we do now? Do we get this aircraft on the ground as soon as possible. Yes okay do we. Head straight toward the airport. Because at that point we were aligned directly toward the Chandler airport where we're based or do we make smaller turns to head toward an abandoned airstrip. That's on reservation. Land Not really monitored by anybody but also much closer to us and less traffic possibilities because we were also thinking okay. It's just the wing but it could also be the landing gear. It could be the engine stopping at any moment. We don't know what else has been impacted. About what altitude were you guys in terms of AG L? When the collision occurred at about four thousand feet. Okay and it's a an awkward altitude to be at because you're in the process of shooting practice approach and not yet on with approach. But your right at that altitude Should you be at the five hundreds or should you be at the thousands? What are we doing here? So that was the most difficult struggle for us to is that. It's a transition point where you're descending from one to another but with us. We had just leveled off to start the approach and start talking to traffic control so I remember a styling in. Instead of contacting approach. We contacted our local tower because we figured that the local tower might have these guys up on their radar and they have a better internal contact to get down to our flight. School emergency services in the local area Chandler versus talking to Phoenix approach which was much further away. So all of these split-second decisions were being made. We didn't want to fly over houses. Were dealing with an airstrip in the middle of nowhere versus airports but the airstrip is closer. And how do we do this? We manipulate the airplane. Just using rudder so I can tell you I am beyond grateful. I wouldn't be here today. If my chief pilot had not been the one in the airplane with me because this man flies great lakes he flies pits he flies aerobatic and knows exactly the limitations of an aircraft especially in a state like this so immediately of course he was on the controls and once we landed We couldn't use any flaps obviously coming in because the Aileron had been jammed so much into the flap system and we just took every precaution. You're sitting there thinking about going back to the basics when something like this happens. You're cracking the door open. Just like you're taught in training your hands on the fuel selector valve to make sure that you're shutting that off as soon as you touch down you just go into that mode that we all practice for over and over again in emergency training as student pilots. All the way up to professionals know at any point. Did you ever see the other airplane? We never did air. Traffic control finally told us about a minute before we land that they were able to see them squawking seventy seven hundred so at least we knew at that point that they were alive before we landed. Okay but you hear the collision you never do. See Them. You're focused on flying your own airplane. The instructors got control of the airplane. Did you guys do a controllability check talks about now? You've got this airplane. You make the decision to go into Keila River Memorial. I think you mentioned on on the reservation. Was it relatively close to you. Where you just a few miles away from the airport. At that time we were so we were just a few miles to southeast of the airport. So perfectly lined up with the chandler that we were checking back to so. It took us about fifty to ninety degree turn. I can't remember the exact amount in order to get lined up with the runways that are over at. He'll river for us. During that time it was a matter of okay. Let's take a look. See what we can actually do. The airplane okay. The rudders are fine. Ailerons can't do it okay. What about flap controls? Nope totally jammed. Can I ask you? Did you know that were ineffective? Because you tried to use them in. Couldn't or did you just look out at them and decide? We're not even going to try that. Nope we tried to move the yoke around and nothing was working. You could move the from full left to right and nothing was working. Got It so no aileron control but you do have good pitch control and good rudder control of course The engine still operating normally correct. Okay and you're at four thousand feet above the he'll river memorial. So you looking at the map here you do. What looks like probably a left hand. Turn and begin. Descending towards the river memorial is that right correct it was get on the ground as fast as you can power idle since we have zero flaps worse case scenario if we're high weaken slip it and just pray at this point though we get this thing on the ground safe and you have to do much turning or you rudder over in the direction of he'll river and you were pretty much set up on a final approach there or how did you guys do that. We were essentially on a long final at this point. Enough time to get stabilized and pay attention to how we were going to muscle this onto the ground. And how did you do that? Did you fly a pretty fast final because you were? I mean who knows what your real stall speed is now with three fear wing missing out on the right side right. How'd you handle the approach speed somewhat? I remember I remember My chief keeping it pretty straightforward and S. Just saying. You know. It doesn't matter how long it takes us to get stopped. We're going to aim toward the beginning of the runway. It's a relatively long runway because this airport at one point was used for aerial firefighting. So they still have some DC. Six's that are. They're just kind of abandoned so we knew we had a lot more room to work with and no houses on either end unlike the Chandler airport so we figured we just need to get close to the ground. We'll get it on the ground and then however long it takes us to get stopped and situated. We'll figure that out as we go. Yeah so it sounds like you keep your speed up. You came down and realize you had a long runway. The winds can get pretty strong out there in Arizona were the wind factor at all. Thankfully not because this was October so October is some of our most mild weather in Arizona. It's the transition period between when we get all of those storms coming in. The monsoon season has wrapped up for the most part and then October becomes that seventy degree weather until we reach March. Beautiful Time of year to fly out there and so That was a lucky break for you that it happened there when you're not worried about the heat or the wind or density altitude too much so you guys came down final. Kept your air speed up. You come over the runway and then just from there as normal as he could make it around out of flare and touchdown correct yet as normal as we could make it and as soon as we got on the ground immediately. Shut everything down. Fuel selector valve turned off and get out of the airplane as fast as we can just in case and I can't tell you how fast we both dropped to the ground just to make sure that both of us were okay that you know okay. We're on the ground. It's fine now. We can start thinking about everything that comes along with this.
Invulnerable to Danger - Part 2
"Talking about affecting the safety mindset of pilots that appear to feel invulnerable and we were using the Kobe. Bryant crashed the pilot from that crash is a kind of example now. We don't have the final report on that accident yet. But we do have a lot of data and I've had a lot of great conversations and I think I'm finally getting my head around some strategies that we can use to avoid making the same mistakes I mean first of all. Let's just review. There's been a lot of data coming back about the Kobe. Bryant crashed but we're using that pilot as an example because at the end of the day he was flying at about one hundred and sixty knots three hundred feet off the ground in very very marginal conditions and died doing something that kills more pilots than other weather events combined rights lightning icing thunderstorms microbursts wind. Share I mean you name it right all of that in one bucket via far into IMC kills more pilots right. So how did this eight thousand two hundred pilot? Eight thousand two hundred hour pilot not know that right. He must have known that. There's there's no way he didn't know that yet he's still going at that. Speed three hundred feet off the ground in conditions that were extremely marginal and at some point. He realized I can't do this anymore. I'm not I don't have visibility. I'm getting too close to the ground. And he executed an abrupt pull up into the clouds. We don't know why it was so abrupt. We don't know if he was thinking. I'm just GONNA pop up through this layer or or what but you can go to the pilot's. Handbook of Air Nautical Knowledge. Look up the section on spatial disorientation. This is textbook. There's something called elevator allusion when you introduce that upward force. Your tendency is to pitch down and just before the top of the clouds just before the helicopter broke out. That's exactly what happened. It started diving left. Turn and hit a mountain going. Four thousand feet permanent down right so the pilot unless he became incapacitated or had instrument failures. Let's just you know. Let's go with the obvious. Right comes razor. The most obvious answer tends to be the correct one he. He was spatially disoriented which would make a ton of sense because he's doing something that kills more pilots than all other weather events combined and he exposed himself to this elevator illusion. The real question is how did he feel as though this was not a problem for him how did he. Why was he going that fast? And some people say well hey look. There were pressures to fly Kobe Bryant. And Yeah Okay. But it doesn't mean you have to be on one hundred sixty three hundred feet off the ground. I think the behavior of if you watch the flight path and think about the mindset of this pilot. This is somebody who wasn't feeling vulnerable. Maybe right up until the very end. So how do we affect that? A lot of you know my work and I I in my book setting the standard a large part of. What's really become my thesis and Flight? Training is that we need to emulate the commercial operators standardize our behavior around accidents. That have occurred so that. We're modifying behaviors based on accidents. That have occurred whenever possible. We make those procedures redundant and then we force our own compliance But still even even knowing that there's still the right amount of pressure under the rate circumstances at the right time or the right combination of events that will get even the most experienced pilots. You know that to say well just this once. I'm going to. Maybe they even get away with it and it becomes normal right and they normalized this deviant behavior that they didn't even know was deviant because they keep getting away with it. I got some really interesting feedback about how in some other industries like law enforcement for example or construction others unknown concept that with a certain amount of hours or a certain amount of experience you become complacent that experience equals that and then flying we kind of do the opposite. We think more hours is more experienced. The is the safer pilot. And maybe that's true in the in the professional world where you're going back in for recurrent training every six months But maybe not so much in generally vacation one of the people I talked to a gentleman named David Dow. Who's a safety expert for confined spaces particularly in construction? I believe in any case. Consider what he had to say about safety. Classes that were required in the workplace couple hundred fatalities each year and trenches and excavations and confined spaces and was my specialty so to speak a lot of safety classes I met a lot of times with skepticism from participants and they basically had the attitude. If I've been doing this work for years and I've never had a problem So safety really isn't a concern. Just have not had a problem in the past. So why am I here for the safety class? I sometimes joke and think of it like you know. There's an expression that if a company is not growing it's dying. I always say if a pilot's not trying to get better. They're getting worse. And the concept of normalization of deviance is. Maybe you're getting away with things. Maybe the Kobe Brian Pilot had done this fifteen twenty times when the conditions were slightly better and it worked. You know you can kind of falsely. Prove to yourself that what you're doing is safe. So that's when I started thinking about the scared straight program and you know that's the one where they take the problem youth and they put him in jail for the night and they get scared straight in quotes and that led to a very interesting conversation with Greg Patch. All My name is Greg Paddle. I'm the Chief Flight Instructor Gateway Technical College and Kenosha Wisconsin. I think the biggest issue is getting pilots to realize their their own weaknesses or overconfidence. And the the only way to really do that is to put them in a position where they become overconfident or overlook some of their weaknesses and actually make a mistake. And it's trying to find a safe way to do that and there in lies one of the issues. You know the reason. We don't do spins in training anymore because two thirds the accidents. The fatal accidents were happening in training. So how can you safely do this? How can you safely make pilots aware of their vulnerability? Greg uses simulators and actual NTSB accident reports to recreate events that have proven fatal in the real world One of the scenarios we use as a a maintenance flight for an aircraft where it had some work done. Everything's supposed to be good and you know you're flying this airplane back to your home base. what we usually do is We we give the students the scenario. We don't tell them you know what the accident is. What happened we say? Plan the flight you know you might have. Passengers might not how much fuel you bring in. So the first thing they do is they ready. One page Risk Assessment papers and Kinda lay out what they see as possible risk for the flight and what their negation strategies or reduction strategies are for those perceived risks and they may or may not hit the nail on the head with the flight. Sometimes it's something that's completely outside the realm of something they could check on a simulator flight like a maintenance issue Then they will Submit a flight plan and plan for him so we know what their route is. We know what fuel they WANNA take and they may or may not get that out just like an eye for flight plan you might get throughout you file or not. The scenario happens in the simulator. The instructor kind of drive that Whether it'd be an engine failure or Seafood type of scenario where there's controlled flight into terrain and the actual excellent report And depending on how. The students either plan the flight or respond to that. That stressor in this scenario is Is the learning experience so sometimes the flight was off without a hitch minutes because they saw that risk upfront and they were able to apply you know appropriate negation strategies and move through that. And say I'll come and they they get to the end of the scenario and they're like well you know nothing really happened. Well Great. That means you. You had good skills going into that flight. For that scenario that doesn't happen with every scenario One of the scenarios I use is a A flight within Inner Fire and I actually bought a small smoke generator from party city and use that in the simulator to to add that realism. And it's about an hour and a half into the flight so I mean you're in the simulator in an enclosed simulator for an hour and a half after a while. It feels like you're fine an airplane and all of a sudden starts pouring. I had students panic a little bit in the simulator. You know and it. Kinda sounds funny but you know after you're in there for a while you really think that's happening so as realistic as you can. So that it applies to something they'd see in real life to trying to teach them to be more diligent about looking at the day to day flying and and what south or that could be a danger. There is so much good stuff in there and Greg is definitely a man after my own heart. You know I am the guy in the simulator with all the lights off and forcing my student to hold a Red Light. You know and Turning the volume the hominy engine up as loud as I can. And putting on headsets and making fake air traffic control calls mean anything we can do to make it more like the real world and Greg's right after a while that the illusion really does start to get some depth and you start to feel like you're in an airplane even though it's not moving and there's no you know perception emotion. Another amazing thing that they are doing there is having a risk assessment For the flight that they're about to taken. I'm not sure if it was greg with. Somebody got me on instagram and said that that was something their school did as well just to build it in from day. One on any given flight even if I'm going out to the practice area with a student there's a certain amount of risk associated with it and I have certain risk mitigation strategies for me assuming. No one makes any obvious mistakes. I consider the three big risks fire failure and collision on and you know for fire and failure. Outside of structural failure. You practice you know you. Practice communication failure you practice engine failure you practice fire procedures emergency to sense all sorts of stuff like that and for collision. I feel a lot better now. In today's world that were inside of what used to be the mode c ring but now requires a DSP out transponders. So I definitely take advantage of that. I've got the century Receiver always up. I've got four flat on my phone buzzing traffic in my pocket. I've got four fight on my IPAD showing traffic and now we really do have good visibility. So you have a risk mitigation strategy. Even if it's just I'm GONNA look out the window and I think the process of walking through it is what's important and what we want to pass

Is BizAv Entering The Third Age Of Aviation?
"What was the highlight or alone lider help us out well certainly Monday nights Gulfstream roll out of the g seven hundred sales mockup amid a multi million dollar extravaganza telescoping led jumbotrons and smoke and sound the end and light flashes and so forth those pretty much stole the show and I think the significance of g seven hundred was that cost name whether they wanted not Kinda got eclipsed by global seventy five hundred here's an airplane to go seventy seven hundred files business aviation's first for section did you really say eclipse anyway you know all of the thunder at the top end of the market Peru can produce the ultimate over jet seems to have been stolen by bombarded with global seventy five hundred you know the folks Savannah near the editor something so what they've done is a very clever stretching of g six fifty and they stretched it by ten feet and of course I will tell you when you stretch an airplane you can re Lee add a lot of volume to it for very little weight increase and saw the airplanes been stretched the airplane has the same weighing as the g six fifty it has new winglets to lower drag and new engines that Guy talked about and a new flight deck that has taken from the G. five hundred six hundred so called Jesus Surrey's a which is symmetry which is based on active side sticks and touchscreens an iphone for avionics if you will and the need a g seven and g five hundred g six hundred type rating instead of g six fifty type rating to fly the G. Seven hundred even what's a derivative of g six fifty now the airplane because it stretched only gained about fifteen hundred pounds of empty weight and Gulfstream's managed to stuff another twelve hundred pounds of fuel onboard they're claiming the airplane will not have any more range initially than the seventy five hundred mile g six fifty we all know here that Gulfstream is not going to allow Bob Party to have boardroom bragging rights with a four Cabinet Uber jet that has more range than airplanes so you know people I talked to think it'll APP seventy eight hundred eight thousand miles range when it comes out but I think Gulfstream really kind of Stole the show on Monday night you know what what did you folks that how did you how do you think it compares you know Plane plane with with the bombarding well The airplane is ten feet longer now it has two extra windows in each side and Gulfstream specifications showed the cabin is almost two feet longer than the global seventy five hundred Each of those four living spaces should be better and I think that from my experience lead the Gulfstream will have not only the highest pressurization class mind you you know forty five thousand feet the pressurization on g seven hundred as she six fifty gives you like a four thousand foot cabin uh-huh and from what I've seen these are the quietest business jets in the Sky I believe the Gulfstream will have a substantially quieter airplane them Bob Barker Jake the global seventy five hundred what's what's the price seventy five million dollars only that only why is that for seventy five hundred dollars seventy five million dollars well you get we'll head up displays with standard enhanced vision and synthetic vision on displays get symmetry cockpit you get standard k a band sat gone and he played with the same bill you know you can do a void calling on Asan you can stream movies this has become the standard and I think that at the cabin experience will be at least as good if not better than global seventy five hundred because it slightly larger quieter and bombarding a is here at the show is highlighting there Interior of seventy five hundred with the law Fra the opera soundsystem strategically placed so it's like the taking the home theater experience and putting that into your airplane at Swiss to cheech strategically placed speakers and all that and the new seats or it's almost like a seat contest in a way like especially designed seeds and beautiful interiors on both of these what's really interesting molly and thank you for bringing Matt up you take a look at how these airplanes have been positioned in the market you don't see the videos where they're planning stuff with executives going from city to city Doing Business deals man this is a fly Ferretti Yacht you see families and dogs and beautiful people inexpensive closed and they're listening to Laborat- Stereo Systems and seeing four K. movies this is a lifestyle experiences for me Geez you know after almost four decades and business aviation dime shift to see these manufacturers go after high net worth individuals and the lifestyle segment business people due to the mood lighting and to if you go from so you're less jet lag so you kind of recreate the you know you're the different daylight nighttime die you're doing inside but at seventy five million I think I think the bottle mine is GONNA pay for more than more than individuals I would think of all the airplanes going out there that maybe I don't eighty five percent would go to these individuals or what do you think no actually there's been quite a bit of shift and I think both bombarded and Gulfstream of said these things now predominantly or going to hide Nassar's individuals as opposed to corporations they announced still watch customer had her executive right and also put the flex jet to add it to their flex jet yet is going to be I and and Embraer's going to flex shit now as well right one and one point five billion dollars worth of member airs that's Interesting Guy day Fred raise the point about the engines are they special I mean most most Gulfstream's have had roles from the start not all yeah no not all not all well this is very interesting point here I think what you're seeing is now the the next phase of this ongoing battle that we've nest Zena the top end of of the Corpus jet market where these these UBI jets as Fred rightly calls them kind of the broad out of the the factors the very best of new technologies that's been developed not only for these this what is admittedly a niche market but also springing off work in doing it back on the headquarters for that commercial programs so for example Jeez spun the passport engine which took over at bombard ea for for a while at the top end of the market with the equal which they then produced the passed ball from Pratt and Whitney of course came out of a similar concept of common in core program for the for the geared turbofan which then managed to get hold of this the top end of the Gulfstream market temporarily taking the crown away from rolls-royces equally right you mentioned so roles similar program it's called the advance series so the advanced three is currently developing as the basis for their next Generation big commercial engines the advanced two is where the Pearl comes on the Pearl is the engine for Fred's chat it's the pill seven hundred it's a piece of engineering excellent by what we've seen so far it's remarkable it's going to fifty one point inch diameter titanium uh-huh bliscoll fan that means that the blades is twenty four of them and they're actually permanently attached to the to the hub itself they're not sloppy it and like you used to be able to it's a that's a lighter weight solution is more narrow dynamically advanced to and it's called Scott this very high Asia ratio core twenty four to one inside the engine the first six play first stages of high pressure

as the ammunition it fires it fires the high velocity to twenty three caliber military ammunition small bowl at the size of a twenty two rifle bullets the problem is it's high velocity four thousand feet per second it is something hard that tiny little bullet fragments and causes tremendous tissue damage why not be in the two twenty three ammunition and limit you the a a a our platform to twenty two caliber bullets which don't do nearly as much damage they would be in machine guns and and in nineteen thirty four because they were too lethal why not be in the high velocity two twenty three zero okay to lethal but all bollocks or lethal a George by if used in this fashion and here let me answer yeah go ahead let me answer the answer just as many people would get shot fewer people would die because the tissue damage wouldn't be as great you can get shot with a twenty two and I did not die one of the reasons he settles order doesn't have an army three thirty seven what about that well of course what you do then you're talking here and then you're talking hand yeah sure we we should go out of hand guns and to write well sure but yeah well that's that's that's that's the that's the point that we brought up earlier than once you start doing that then it keeps going down the list and then and the eventual solution is to get rid of all guns and that's just again that isn't going to happen in our society right it's just not going to happen right and it isn't you're not going you're we don't and say whatever you want and I know that the left states it's evil but for the millions of gun owners and say that doing that use their guns aren't actually don't use their guns except when they use our guns are using them properly for target practice or whatever who don't miss you lose their right to own a gun I'm sorry you can't go to them and say well because five or six people year do something wrong or because there are people that are in gangs or whatever who use stolen weapons to kill other people that's got nothing to do with me right it doesn't take away my rights and we know that the left views at as an offensive point of view to hold that's part of the debate that we have in this country that's part of the anger that comes from a left towards people on the right and I ask that question many times you and I both as it is at justified from the left the hatred that you have for legal gun owners whose only goal is to protect themselves if we talk about the rage that exist and we believe that that's part of the problem that we have in our society even though I don't believe that's the reason for the mass murderers and bad the mass murders like we see I'm but this is what the leftist is stating that they must be the range from the right that's doing it when the moves let's pick out the rage in the laughter for going to do that ever going to play that game will play that game right but there are tons of people in this country the hot there's hundreds of millions of people that are in rage right now because of what's going on in this country on the left and on the right they don't commit mass murders no they don't so how do you figure out which one to

Plane with the largest wingspan in the world takes flight
"The world's largest aircraft made its maiden flight in California. On saturday. The plane has to coke pits and a wingspan longer than the length of a football field. One very excited. Plane-spotter was there to see a takeoff in havi desert? Jack bay aerospace and rocket photographer for NASA spaceflight dot com, and he's been speaking to the BBC's lease to set very early morning. Maybe thirty minutes after sunrise, and we were near the end of the runway offset slightly or very early on. They had pulled the aircraft out and lined up on the end of the runway. So we were all very excited and right around seven o'clock it started to move and to my delight it took off. And it seemed almost effortless. It was. It was almost any climatic. They really did a great job both with the take off in the ending. But almost surprise to me at a certain moment. It hit me. Like, oh my goodness. This thing is actually fine in the air. Right at me. So that was quite a treat. I expect. I'll not forget this day ever set the wingspan is greater than the length of a football field. I mean, that's just almost impossible to contemplate. It's really madness. I mean, that's kind of what I mean about it being startled are surprised when it took off. 'cause I don't know what I was expecting maybe maybe longer on the runway or maybe a slower climb. But I mean, like any other aircraft. It was basically just up and out, and you know, my I was lack jot. It was just it was like nothing I've seen before. And I've seen plenty of aircraft. Plenty of large aircraft. I've shot virgin galactic here multiple times. That's always a treat. But you know, this is just on a whole 'nother level. I absolutely cannot wait for them to get a rocket under this thing. And I wanna photographic with rocket attached. I wanna see this thing launch a Pegasus, which is the type of rocket that they're believe are aiming to launch. So it's the dawn of a new era of space white we've been watching from aircraft for some time. But everyone is trying to lower the access to space low the cost access to space. You know, we can do that. Then only going to benefit humanity a large scale, it's really great. So what actually happens when the rocket is put on the plane? So eventually got to the point where where they will make the rocket to the vehicle when are happy with how everything's performing. And they have done all their tests. The vehicle will climb up about four thousand feet, I think and will release the rocket and thereby airplanes and go back and land at the at the runway, the rocket freefalls briefly fires engine, and then climbs into orbit where it will deposit payload. It's fascinating and interesting to see another page in aviation history. Spaceflight history
