I didn't even finish the book ( most of the stories is from air crash investigation...which I know them already)
and the book is printed by Amazon with ordinary white paper so it's really unpleasant to read... If I knew about it I would buy it as an e-book)

Revealing 22 janvier 2013
Par Tara - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Wow! What a read. It's going to be hard for me to get on any more MD-80s, 737s, or an Airbus every again. Even though I LOVE airplanes. This book was incredibly insightful. Perfect for an aviation buff such as myself. Having had an "insider view" into some aspects of these things in my career as a mechanic, I felt as though I was getting the full 411 for a change.

I love Air Emergency. I have this sick obsession with airplane crashes. What causes them? Was it mechanical? I think that's partly because in all my aviation career, that possibility was always in the back of my mind, ensuring I did my job carefully. This book brings up many air crashes and disasters, some I watched on that show, some that were new to me. My one and only quibble is the book leads with introducing a flight crew and telling us they crashed, but never do they tell us why. Urgh! I felt teased. If it did reveal the reason, it was so far later, I didn't make the connection.

But...things I learned that blew me away:

Your baby and your child under 7 are NOT safe on commercial planes. Babies on the lap: not safe. The likelihood of your baby surviving in severe turbulence or a rapid brake landing: nil. Seatbelts are made for adults, not children, as it can severely damage their pelvises and abdominal area in a crash. Talk your airline about a "car seat" and NEVER use loop belts. Incredible data was revealed in this.

Fatigue: bad problem.

Counterfeit parts: Yikes!

Boeing and their 737 NGs. Wow. This chapter talks about a major scandal and cover up regarding parts Boeing bought from a company... The company claimed they were computer made when in reality, they were man made with sharpie markers and hand saws and you have aircraft flying around that shouldn't be. This chapter was my favorite. Very revealing.

It talked about how the big airlines to save money are not really hiring mechanics, but people off the street with one mechanic supervising, training them for a mere specialty.....Been there. *nods*

And oh, also, how the engine air is circulating through the aircraft with oil fumes in it so we breathe that stuff in. Flight crews often have a high rate of cancer because of this.

A very eye-opening book. The last chapter is about how YOU can make flying safe for yourself.

Four stars. Wish the crashes had been better explained. I bought this on Amazon. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in aviation or those who fly often.

A good read for airline passengers 8 février 2013
Par Wayne A. Allen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
In this book, the authors do a credible job of documenting the current (2012) state of airline safety. Although clearly the safest way to travel long distances, passenger safety has been compromised significantly since the beginning of the worldwide economic downturn. All parties including the manufacturers, the airlines, governments, and airports have been operating under immense financial pressures. Once well paid pilots are a thing of the past, and those employed by regional carriers often earn less than $15,000 a year. The airlines are under constant threat of bankruptcy or takeover and as a consequence cut corners on maintenance and repair. Passengers have also contributed to this undesirable situation by seeking out low fares --- understandable given economic circumstances.
Perhaps only time will lead to improvements in passenger safety. In the meantime, the last chapters of the book offer some useful tips to the travelling public to reduce the chances of being in an aviation accident.

Thought provoking - especially for an industry insider! 20 juillet 2013
Par Carolyn W. Pope - Publié sur Amazon.com

Enjoyed this book... As a flight attendant for a major U.S. carrier, I appreciate information that is credible. This book provided me not only with insight, but also with potential tools and information that I might use to keep myself and my passengers safe.

Thank you for publishing this book!

Kindle freebie - for a reason 12 février 2014
Par sph - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This is virtually a book-length "scare story" from the evening news. Flying is dangerous! Pilots are fatigued! Planes can have mechanical problems, poor maintenance, or go down due to pilot error! OMG! There's nothing new here for "students" of aviation accidents. Ice-clogged pitot tubes WILL mess with your instrumentation. Definitely a design flaw, but the A330 involved in the Air France #447 disaster over the Atlantic is one of the most popular aircraft in the world. Author Meade is guilty of hyping rare outliers in the otherwise superb safety statistics in aviation. (For the record: I have no affiliation whatsoever with the airline/travel/aircraft businesses, I'm just a regular guy with an interest in air accidents.)

If you're interested in the causes and effects of aviation disasters, there are far, far better choices. The same is true of some of the industry's unsavory practices, including doing everything "on the cheap". If, however, you want to read an extended "details on our news at 10" ratings-boosting scare report, here's your book.

One pilot's delima 8 juillet 2014
Par Verna Bassemier - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This inside story of a pilot's struggle to buck the system when he was not at fault shows pilots are underpaid in my opinion. It's not the guy in the office who makes the air line a success, it's the pilot and he should be treated like a partner. I had to read other sources to find that he was later rehired by the air line that hadn't backed him up after landing a plane in very difficult circumstances with no loss of life. Instead he was told to keep his mouth shut and not talk to the media while his first officer was allowed to give interviews which made it look like the author had something to hide. Just because he didn't take over from the first officer to land the plane himself, he did direct the show and applied the necessary trim to the plane to land it safely.
