Flight Safety Considerations
- Bird Strike, is common and can be a significant threat to aircraft safety. For smaller aircraft, significant damage may be caused to the aircraft structure and all aircraft, especially jet-engined ones, are vulnerable to the loss of thrust which can follow the ingestion of birds into engine air intakes, which has caused a number of fatal accidents.
- Altimeter Temperature Error Correction, is applied to altimeters to compensate for error caused by deviation from ISA conditions.
- Parallel Runway Operation, need to be carefully managed in such a manner as to minimise the risk of runway incursion or wrong runway use due. Closely-spaced parallel runways may affect the pilots' situational awareness or lead to their distraction or confusion.
