Here's How They'll Piece Together What Happened to Flight MH370 | Autopia | Wired.com | Technology Enhanced Learning in Aviation | Scoop.it
As the search for MH370 enters its third week, authorities get their most tantalizing clue yet with photos showing a possible debris field. Finding wreckage would allow them to begin piecing together, literally and figuratively, just what happened.
The Digital Aviator's insight:

We may never know what eventually happened on board the day this aircraft was illegally seized. Blaming the pilots may be an assumption too far, 'might it be possible that they died rather than hand their aircraft over to people unknown?  I am sure almost no effort will be spared to get to the bottom of this, but it will almost certainly involve some very serious deep water recovery...

The Digital Aviator's insight:

'Being tired' is something we still don't fully understand, as simple as that sounds. The difference between a few days of heavy work and a timezone jumping roster flown for a decade is something you must do to fully appreciate its effects long term. We take these affects out on the line with us every day - we better understand how to manage them because the regulators don't. They understand what they are being told by politicians being advised by those who see their numbers, but can't get their head around the longer term consequences.

Flight Safety Compromised | European Cockpit Association (ECA)

Flight Safety Compromised | European Cockpit Association (ECA) | Technology Enhanced Learning in Aviation | Scoop.it
“Today the European Parliament (EP) voted for a Regulation that is not to the benefit of the flying public in Europe,” says Nico Voorbach, ECA President, after the adoption of the new EU Flight Time rules by the EU Parliament this afternoon. “With this approval the EP took a step away from a ‘precautionary’ approach, ignored scientific expert advice and put passenger safety at risk.” Pilots and cabin crew from across Europe have repeatedly highlighted the safety loopholes of the regulation proposed by the EU Commission: excessively long night flights of up to 12hrs30 – while scientists have set the safe limit at 10 hours – and a combination of standby and flight duty, which could lead to pilots landing aircraft after having been awake for more than 22 hours.
