Aircraft Accidents

Remains Of Collgan Air Crash At Buffalo, NYAircraft accidents are more common than we would like to think despite the recent history of air carrier safety records. While commercial airline flight activity accounts for a large percentage of flight hours worldwide, general aviation flight hours remain a significant portion of total worldwide aircraft flight hours. General aviation aircraft perform a myriad of jobs around the world ranging from student pilot instruction to cargo transportation and emergency evacuation helicopter flights. Add to that military flight hours and it is easy to see the skies are certainly busy, and getting busier.

    All the more reason to eliminate the weak link in the aviation chain: the human. We have the technology, why can’t we use it – starting with cameras in cockpits. Including GA.

    Dave:

    You are right. I was listening to NPR the yesterday and they were having a conversation about driverless cares and airplanes. The point they made was that the technology is here and capable; the problem is that we humans are afraid of surrendering control to a computer.
