UNIT 3: Crew Alerting Management Notes ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ Crew Alerting Management Objectives After completion of this unit, the students will be aware of the following topics: Facilities and Gadgets in Aircraft Various Types of Emergencies Unlawful Interface and Aircraft Bomb Threat Introduction Aircraft while in flight is prone to various types of emergency situations, which become risky if not attended in time. The flight crew members (Pilots, Co-pilots, Flight Engineers, Cabin crew, stewards etc.) are expected to handle such situations of their own, since it may not be possible to provide any kind of fruitful assistance by ground personnel in the air. However, under such circumstances, ground people (ATC, Airlines, Fire Staff, Ground handling staff, Military and Defence authorities etc.) make efforts to allow the aircraft to land in a safe, expeditious and efficient manner and then provide full ground assistance; and also help in search & rescue efforts. In order to resolve any such eventuality, the best possible assistance that can be given to the pilot by the system is in the form of an early warning, so that he is able to take the necessary preventive action at the earliest. In order to meet this requirement, modern aircraft are equipped with various facilities and gadgets, which provide early alert warning of an emergency situation in the aircraft. Facilities and Gadgets in an Aircraft Some facilities and gadgets installed in an aircraft are given below: Stall Warning System If the speed of the aircraft becomes dangerously low (Known as stalling speed) this particular warning appears, so that the pilot can take preventing action to increase the speed of the aircraft. Activity Make a research on the facilities available for crew alerting management. (c) UPES, Not for Reproduction/ Sale

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
