As you watch the video identify hazards relating to the failed aircraft system. In your initial post use the risk assessment format in Chapter 11 pgs. 141-142 of the textbook to explain: Hazard Risk Risk Assessment Control Approach Hydraulic system Hazard risk, Item 1: Loss of all primary flight control surfaces . The hydraulic system controls the ailerons, flaps, rudder, and elevator (Nature TV, 2019). The hazard mode is described as malfunctions of the hydraulic system or loss of hydraulic power, causing the loss of control of the primary flight control surfaces. This condition is hazardous at any time of a flight operation because the changes in primary flight controls can affect the lift and drag of the aircraft (Federal Aviation Administration [FAA], 2016). Although this hazard does not pose a discernible effect on other systems, the significant result of this hazardous condition could lead to a total loss of control of the aircraft and the occurrence of a catastrophic accident, which could cause fatal injuries. Risk assessment, Item 1: 1D. This hazard is categorized as catastrophic because of its potential loss of human life. The probability of occurrence is considered remote as three hydraulic systems were isolated and had its distinct function. However, failure of all three hydraulic systems at the same moment could happen when there is explosive damage where the debris damaged the entire hydraulic systems, which is one of the contributing factors to the United Airlines flight 232 (Nature TV, 2019).
