Radio Show, Episode 318, Monday, May 15, 2017
Radio Show Episode 318 will air on Monday, May 15, 2017 and will focus on
“Flight Accidents … Pilot Error or Maintenance Factors?” This next Episode will
take our discussion to another vital topic that is being discussed in the May
Issue, www.Aviation Safety Magazine.com, see article in Newsletter online 2017.
We don’t often hear that a Pilot manages to accommodate a systems or hardware failure and prevents a flight accident from happening. There are circumstances where a scenario complicated by weather/fuel shortages/loss of flight electronics, etc. that are factors…is it human or is it a maintenance error? Does the airlines follow their maintenance schedule to keep their aircraft up to Aviation Safety Network specifications? Are they training their employees to be highly qualified technicians? Do they have the latest Pilot training on new technology aircraft?

Metro Skyways said on Monday they plan to develop a four-passenger, hydrogen-powered, autonomous VTOL ﬂying car, the CityHawk. The vehicle will initially use jet fuel, but eventually will be converted to liquid hydrogen and then to compressed hydrogen, the company said. Development is expected to take about five years. The company plans to use a standard FAA-approved aviation engine, the company said, with an independent fuel system. Metro is a subsidiary of UrbanAero, which developed the Cormorant VTOL, on which the CityHawk will be based. The Cormorant has logged more than 200 hours in flight test. See more... Video
