Hazards come in all shapes and sizes

Hazards come in all shapes and sizes

Today, flying is one of the most common and convenient methods of transportation. Aviation is the art and science of taking to the skies. It is all about designing, production and maintenance of aircraft. There are some people who have even adopted flying as a hobby. It is a fun activity but it requires extra care. Aviation safety is all about avoiding flight failures and plane crashes. There are multiple hazards which could cause such accidents.

These hazards need to be addressed critically before flying:

 

Foreign Object Damage

Any foreign object can be hazardous during the flight. It includes any technical error during manufacturing or repair. Any debris like dust or stones on the runway also acts as foreign object debris.

 

Misleading and Lack of Information

At times, the maps and charts used during the flights are misleading which can de-track the plane and can cause damage. In the same way, when information provided by the flight or ground control is not accurate then it can cause damage or even crashes.

 

Lightning

Per year average two planes crash because of lightning. It so happens that at times lightning occurs without any prediction which is very dangerous. Research has shown that the effect of lightning on the metal coated planes is very disastrous so it is very unsafe to fly in lightening and thundering.

Today, flying is one of the most common and famous methods of transportation. Aviation is the art and science of flying an aircraft. It is all about designing, production and maintenance of aircraft. There are some people who have even adopted flying as a hobby. It is a fun activity but it requires extra care. Aviation safety is all about avoiding flight failures and plane crashes. There are multiple hazards which could cause such accidents. These hazards need to be addressed critically before flying:

 

Component Failure

Component failure can be a result of multiple factors. For instance, there could be any technical error, foreign object debris, fuel starvation, any of these factors could cause an engine to fail. That is why a proper maintenance is crucial otherwise some serious damage can occur.

 

Human Factors

One of the most common cause of crashes and accidents is human error. It happens many times that the individual flying makes any error by mistake.  Special training sessions and programs are there to train people in this area. All people who adopt it as a hobby, fly professionally or work in Engineering need proper training. But despite all this, there is always a room for human error. People make mistakes which cost them a little too much and at times it can also be fatal.
