Running head: EVALUATING HUMAN FACTORS IN AVIATION ACCIDENTS 1An Evaluation of Accidents Caused by Human factors in Commercial Aviation. bySandro Jose ChiappeA Research Project ProposalSubmitted to the Worldwide CampusIn Partial Fulfillment of the Requirementsof Course, ASCI 490, The Aeronautical Science Capstone CourseFor the Bachelor of Science in Aeronautics DegreeEmbry-Riddle Aeronautical UniversityJuly 2018
EVALUATING HUMAN FACTORS IN AVIATION ACCIDENTS 2AbstractDespite the efforts by the engineers to increase the safety level in the aviation, accidents still which are largely caused by human errors all ranging from technical maintenance problem tonegligence by pilots in the air. Most of these accidents and incidents could have been avoided if the correct information was available to the stakeholders in the aviation industry. There has beenchanges done in the industry. The changes are aimed at meeting the increased demand for safety, enhanced performance, reduction in fuel and environmental capabilities. This will be solely based on the appropriate technology. This study looks deeply into the some of the human causes of accidents such as health and compares the data through graphs and chart with the aim of drawing conclusions that would help reduce accidents that are caused mainly by man. An Evaluation of Accidents Caused by Human Factors in Commercial Aviation Statement of ProjectThis project is a partial fulfillment of the requirements of ASCI 490, The Aeronautical Science Capstone Course for the Bachelor of Science in Aeronautics Degree. The main goal of this research project is to understand, review and mitigate future accidents in aviation which could potentially be caused by human factors. To demonstrate the student’s understanding, critical thinking, text and data analyzation, quantitative reasoning, and error mitigation. In completion of this project, it will give the student a better understanding on how to identify and address issues with regards to human error. By analyzing this information, the goal is to improve the student's situational awareness while on the job and how to appropriately react if an issue is presented.
EVALUATING HUMAN FACTORS IN AVIATION ACCIDENTS 3IntroductionThis project primarily focuses on factors that directly correlate to human error. To identify its types, origins, causes and effects within the aviation industry. The purpose of this project is not to judge the actions of those who attributed or lead to fatal accidents. The focus is to reflect and learn from their mistakes and prevent any future incidents. As always, it is a tragedy that such events have taken place however, accidents such as these must always be taken as a learning opportunity.
