All too often, pilot errors are found to be contributing factors in Aviation Accidents that occur across the globe. So, what if a piece of technology was designed to prevent such mistakes from being made? What would the impact of its implementation be on safety in the aviation industry? A recent article from Aviation International News discussed these questions in detail.
The story examined several aviation accidents involving commercial flights that had occurred in recent years. In each of the cases, pilots reported being overwhelmed by a barrage of warning lights and sirens. The warnings were found to be so distracting that it may have affected the flight crew’s ability to bring the plane down in a safe manner.
These findings have led to several companies developing technology that would essentially simplify the information being given to a pilot during an emergency situation, while also giving visual aid as to what should be done to prevent an aviation accident from occurring. This includes directing a pilot to the nearest runway and taking over controls to get the plane to that location safely.
While the technology is currently on the market for smaller aircraft, many companies are looking at how it could be implemented into the commercial air travel industry. Experts say doing so could prevent a large number of accidents that occur each year.
The Ohio Personal Injury Lawyers with Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy are hopeful advancements in aviation technology will work to better protect air travelers from accidents.
