Boeing to pack fliers tight on high-density 737 model

Boeing to pack fliers tight on high-density 737 model | OCH&S in Aviation Quest 1 | Scoop.it

Already squeezed for space on many flights, economy class passengers may soon lose another two inches of legroom when the fly on no-frills airlines.

That comes after Boeing confirmed on Sunday that it's planning to offer a "modified" high-density version of its popular 737 that will seat up to 200 passengers -- 11 more than on the comparable current model of the 737. The high-density version of Boeing's 737 MAX 8 jet will be targeted to bare bones, low-cost carriers that want to squeeze as many customers as they can onto their flights.

Joe Shreddney Balchin's insight:

Might raise a few complaints about the lack of space. This could also lead to an increase in passenger health problems.

Excellent video identifying the risks surrounding an aerodrome. Also provides tips on how to avoid said risks. The majority of the risks that people face not only around an aerodrome but whilst flying an aircraft in general, are influenced heavily by human input.

Pilot Risk Management: The I'M SAFE Checklist

Pilot Risk Management: The I'M SAFE Checklist | OCH&S in Aviation Quest 1 | Scoop.it
As pilots, we love our checklists. So it's no surprise that there is a self-assessment checklist to assist pilots in determining physical and mental health before flight. The I'M SAFE Checklist is taught early in flight training and is used throughout a pilot's professional career to assess their overall readiness for flight when it comes to health.
Joe Shreddney Balchin's insight:

This article shows an interesting and effective way of minimising the potential for many risks that pilots are faced with. This simple structure could also be applied to other areas of work as well.

Escaped crocodile 'caused fatal plane crash'

Escaped crocodile 'caused fatal plane crash' | OCH&S in Aviation Quest 1 | Scoop.it

A crocodile that escaped in an aircraft cabin may have been responsible for a plane crash that killed a British co-pilot and 18 travellers.

A Gloucester inquest heard how the aeroplane nose-dived from a forward shift in weight after a crocodile climbed out of a sports bag and passengers stampeded towards the cockpit in a panic.

Joe Shreddney Balchin's insight:

Sometimes it's a bit hard to control some situations. How a croc got in to the cabin of a plane I have no idea.
