AVIA 300 Quiz 8: Final

  1. Working to maintain the highest levels of airline safety is an enormous challenge. The depth and breadth of ALPA’s air safety structure, and the critical role it plays in meeting that challenge, are unique in the air transportation industry.
  2. A small part of safety promotion involves the critical need for communication.
  3. According to the textbook, what is a Recommendation?
  4. According to the textbook, what is a Finding?
  5. It is NOT desirable to ensure that the automation and systems operated by pilots are relatively similar between different types of aircraft in a given airline. Doing so reduces training costs and prevents negative transfer of habit patters as pilots transfer between aircraft types during a career. Maintenance costs are also reduced from such an approach.
  6. Annex 6 to the Chicago Convention deals with International Commercial Air Transport. Amendment 33 of Annex 6 sets the stage for international awareness and implementation of SMS by the world’s airlines. It provides that ICAO member States shall require its operators to implement an SMS that as a minimum:
  7. We investigate accidents to prevent future ones.
  8. What are some of the NTSB’s items from their most wanted list?
  9. An additional role of unions is to stimulate _______ awareness among individual pilots to enable flight crewmembers to be constructive critics of the airspace system.
  10. An ideal airline SMS would have limited resources to manage the safety demands of the business.
  11. Automation is not beneficial because it can slow aid human decision making.
  12. Some investigators ask themselves three questions to test if a finding is indeed causal. This is often called the three-step causation test. What are those questions? (select all that apply)
  13. A great leap forward for commercial transport airplanes occurred with the development of the _________, a military jet bomber that first flew on December 17, 1947, the 44th anniversary of the Wright brothers’ first flight.
  14. a display that allows pilots to see through low-visibility weather, could become commonplace in the cockpit of the future.
  15. Development of¬¬¬ _________, such as movable aerodynamic surfaces on wings to increase and decrease lift as a function of phase of flight, had to keep pace with the transition from piston engine to jetliner operations.
  16. According to the textbook, what is a Cause?
  17. _________ are conducted by operating departments of the organization.
  18. From a human factors point of view, major changes in NextGen flight decks also provide new opportunities for human error and significant training challenges.
  19. The NTSB aviation accident database contains information dating from ______ about civil aviation accidents and selected incidents within the United States, its territories and possessions, and in international waters.
  20. The flight management system (FMS) is an integration of four major systems:
  21. The FAA’s principal investigator at an accident is also called the
  22. Since the _____ lacks regulatory authority over the ______ and aviation industry, one of its most important functions is to strongly recommend and advocate appropriate _____ actions that will improve aviation safety.
  23. Aircraft accidents prompt strong emotional responses and confusion.
  24. In the right setting, automation can increase capacity and productivity, reduce manual workload, and provide precise handing of routine operations.
  25. Despite numerous avenues for people to address safety in a proactive way, one of the major challenges to the above systems is that there are no robust frameworks to synthesize all the data. All of the systems work independently of each other, making it hard to combine information for a holistic view of aviation problems.
  26. NextGen is the United States’ new national airspace system set to be in place by 2025.
  27. From Chapter 2, Aeronautical Decision-Making, of the PHAK within Figure 2-4, The Five Hazardous Attitudes, what is the attitude of people who frequently feel the need to do something, anything, immediately.
  28. The U.S. space program today includes three sectors:
  29. is training and communicating other actions to create a positive safety culture within all levels of the workforce.
  30. Radar keeps track of aircraft position in real time, but coverage begins to lessen more than 150 miles from the coast and in remote airspaces.
  31. The significant increases in commercial air travel strain the planet’s airspace, especially when coupled with the explosive growth of unmanned aircraft systems (aka “drones”).
  32. North America remains the busiest region in the world for air traffic.
  33. From Chapter 2, Aeronautical Decision-Making, of the PHAK within Figure 2-4, The Five Hazardous Attitudes, what are pilots who are always trying to prove that they are better than anyone else think, “I can do it—I’ll show them.”
  34. The radar sweeps the area it covers with a radio wave and recognizes flying objects. Typically, it takes a radar dish _______ to rotate.
  35. From the FAA’s, “Avoid the Dirty Dozen” safety list; What is the failure to work together to complete a shared goal?
  36. which provides digital datalink for transmission of short messages via air band radio or satellite between ground stations and aircraft.
  37. The MOST WANTED LIST is the NTSB road map from lessons learned to lives saved. They urge lawmakers, industry, and every American to learn more about what they can do to implement and champion these critical safety improvements.
  38. A future area in commercial aviation safety may be expanding awareness of software failure modes and the vulnerabilities of software to intentional attack by terrorists.
  39. From Chapter 2, Aeronautical Decision-Making, of the PHAK within Figure 2-4, The Five Hazardous Attitudes, these pilots do not see themselves as being able to make a great deal of difference in what happens to them.
  40. Cyber threats will continue to persist in the 21st century and may possibly grow, so there will continue to be a need to protect ________, _________, and the _________________ systems as the number of passengers and flights increase internationally.
  41. Four months after the crash of Germanwings Flight 9525, in response to the preliminary investigative report and due to the lack of current standardized guidance across the world, the EASA produced several recommendations for consideration by the European Commission.
  42. From the FAA’s, “Avoid the Dirty Dozen” safety list; What is the failure to transmit, receive, or provide enough information to complete a task?
  43. From the FAA’s, “Avoid the Dirty Dozen” safety list; What is a physical, chemical, or emotional factor that causes physical or mental tension?
  44. Commercial aviation has managed safety in one way or another since the dawn of flight, but over the last decade, regulating government agencies has created a useful business approach to accident prevention described as ______________.
  45. One advantage is that RNP allows pilots to land in hazardous weather conditions that might otherwise require holding, diversion, or even cancellations. Its precision and reliability ultimately can help air traffic controllers to minimize delayed flights and reduce traffic congestion
  46. In addition to expected increases in traditional commercial air traffic, worldwide airspace is under growing pressure by a new type of user. What is this new user?
  47. is determining the need for and adequacy of new and revised risk controls based on the assessment of acceptable risks.
  48. Accident investigators count on several major skills to perform their duties:
  49. The NTSB MOST WANTED LIST, is the NTSB’s premier advocacy tool, identifies the top safety improvements that can be made across all modes to prevent accidents, minimize injuries, and save lives in the future. These issue areas are ripe for action now; if addressed, they would make a significant impact.
  50. One recommendation that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has suggested to prepare pilots for handling missile threats is to increase pilot training, such as putting pilots through specific simulator exercises using missile attack situations.
