4.0 su 5 stelle Revealing 22 gennaio 2013

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.

3.0 su 5 stelle A good read for airline passengers 8 febbraio 2013
Di Amazon Customer - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
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.

5.0 su 5 stelle Please Make This Book Available for All Passengers, and Anyone Even Remotely Connected to the Airline Industry! 10 luglio 2015
Di Sheila - Pubblicato su

If you're reading this review, and you are in a position to sponsor the distribution of this book to anyone and everyone even remotely connected to the airline Industry, please, please, please, help do it!!! This needs to be taught to anyone and everyone in schools, colleges, government offices, travel agencies, and especially to potential passengers!!! If an airline is known to be dangerous, the public needs to be aware of the dangers of flying with that company.

Every newspaper and news channel, as well as 20/20, CNN, and every magazine, newspaper, computer blog, and Facebook page should include this book's contents and warnings, and make the public aware of dangerous planes, or airlines. Write your senators, congressmen, and governors, and get this information to them. Every talk show host should make this information a major lead story on their programs.

Everyone in the military should spread the information in this book, to their fellow recruits and families and friends. What a cruel punishment that would be, to finish your tour of duty safely, only to have you, or your loved ones killed on a flight mishap, when your families and friends are finally able to be reunited.

Shame on anyone who's swept this information under the rug, downplayed it's importance, or managed to make the government offices and officials in charge of our airline's safety look away from their job of protecting the world's public safety. If even one person dies from their dereliction of their duty to protect and serve, that's one too many lost.

Shame on the airlines that allow airplanes that are too old, too dangerous, or blatantly inferior from the start of production, until the finish of the production, to remain actively flying, particularly when it's a known risk factor to the airlines and their governing agencies, before the planes even leave the ground with passengers onboard. There's no valid excuse to pick profit margins over human lives.

Shame on every airline for not making child safety a priority. Shame on every airline that has had any culpability in the death of a child in an airplane accident due to improper seat restraints or safety seating, it's inexcusable. Ask yourself how you'd feel if that child were yours, or your family's or your friend's child.

Last of all, shame on any airline that cuts costs of airplane construction, the costs for proper pilot training, and simulation time, or that reduces pilot's and crew's living allowances and the down-time that the pilots and their crews need to rest between or on flights, in order to perform their duties safely and effectively.

Thanks to the authors of this book, for getting valuable information to the public. It's a great book, and you should be rewarded for your candor. It takes a great deal of courage to do the right thing, and you "have it in spades." I wish you all many blessings for helping to protect airplane travelers in these dangerous times. Thank you!!!

5.0 su 5 stelle One pilot's delima 8 luglio 2014
Di Verna Bassemier - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
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.

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!
