Discussion: What Do We Do with Accident Investigation Data? Peers Review 2

Provide a classmate review on their discussion topic :

The importance of accident investigation. Why do we do accident investigations and what do we do with the data? So, for this week Discussion Board question, I\\\’m going to ask you to find any kind of evidence that demonstrates what we actually do with what comes out of an accident investigation. So, for example, maybe it\\\’s a media clip, something you read in a newspaper, a recent article in a magazine, or something that actually came out from the FAA website.


Find that information and show us how that information that you found was actually derived from something that came from an accident investigation. Was it a regulatory reform? An enhancement to a safety initiative? Anything like that. Just show us what we are actually doing with that data.


Classmate post that you need to post comment/ review on:

  Typically, an aircraft accident is a book of life and death with a few chapters devoted to investigative findings, proof, or data. At the same time, each piece of gathered data is a fragment of a historical event. Nevertheless, the stories they relate may be persuasive enough to prompt regulatory revisions or newly mandated safety measures. The data may be used to conduct trend analysis on common occurrences in all facets of the aviation industry, whether maintenance, aircrew, or psychological (human factors).

       Continental Flight 3407 crashed into a house in Buffalo, NY, killing all 49 onboard and one on the ground, demonstrating a substantial change in how the Federal Aviation Administration FAA viewed fatigue due to the information discovered in the investigative report. U.S. NTSB safety experts noted fatigue and the need for increased training in the investigative report. The Federal Aviation Administration raised the standards for commercial pilots and first officers in 2013. (Josephs, 2019).  As far as one can determine, this accident was the straw that broke the camel’s back because the NTSB had expressed concerns to the FAA the previous year while reviewing data. At the same time, The NTSB released a new Safety Recommendation addressing fatigue in the aviation industry in June 2008. Four incidents and mishaps since 2004 were attributed, at least in part, to pilot fatigue been at the heart of the recommendations. The NTSB established that pilots were doing their fifth landing at the end of a 14-hour duty day in one of these accidents. (Nemsick & Antonecchia, 2008). Thus, the accident of 2009 ushered in the  FAA mandated AC No: 120-103A Fatigue Risk Management Systems for Aviation Safety. Figure1 illustrates data that shows the results of the changes in fatal accidents since the FAA mandated changes.
