- "Go-Around Decision and Maneuver: How To Make It Safer?": Captain Bertrand de Courville, Air France
- This paper examines the go-around decision and ways of improving the quality of that decision making process. It also considers the safety risks of the go-around manoeuvre.
- Simulator training which includes go-arounds from below decision height or when not in final landing configuration is just one of the improvements suggested by Bertrand in this paper.
- "Some Thoughts on Reducing the Risk of Aircraft Loss of Control": Don Bateman, the inventor of the Ground Proximity Warning System
- This paper focuses on the consideration of practical, cost effective technologies that could help reduce the aircraft risk of Loss of Control. Simple, practical, low cost technology solutions are advocated for both fixed wing and rotating wing aircraft as a means of quickly reducing the risk, years before more elegant and sophisticated systems can be created and fitted into new aircraft designs.
- Use of roll and pitch recovery “Arrows” on the ADI/EFIS to help the pilot recover from unusual attitudes is one of a number solutions considered by Don in this paper.
