Aircraft Failure Assessments: A Practical Guide for System Safety presents a practical guide for the novice safety practitioner in the more specific area of assessing aircraft system failures to show compliance to regulations such as FAR25.1302 and 1309. A case study and safety strategy beginning in chapter two shows the reader how to bring safety assessment together in a logical and efficient manner. Written to supplement (not replace) the content of the advisory material to these regulations (e.g. AMC25.1309) as well as the main supporting reference standards (e.g. SAE ARP 4761, RTCA/DO-178, RTCA/DO-154), this book strives to amalgamate all these different documents into a consolidated str...
Designed as an introduction for both advanced students in aerospace engineering and existing aerospace engineers, this book covers both engineering theory and professional practice in establishing the airworthiness of new and modified aircraft. Initial Airworthiness includes: · how structural, handling, and systems evaluations are carried out; · the processes by which safety and fitness for purpose are determined; and · the use of both US and European unit systems Covering both civil and military practice and the current regulations and standards across Europe and North America, Initial Airworthiness will give the reader an understanding of how all the major aspects of an aircraft are certified, as well as providing a valuable source of reference for existing practitioners.
Demonstrating safety for the application of ever more complex technologies is a formidable task. System engineers often do not have the appropriate training, are unfamiliar with the range of safety approaches, tools and techniques, and their managers do not know when and how these may be applied and appropriately resourced. Aircraft system safety provides a basic skill set for designers, safety practitioners, and their managers by exploring the relationship between safety, legal liability and regulatory requirements. Different approaches to measuring safety are discussed, along with the appropriate safety criteria used in judging acceptability. A wealth of ideas, examples, concepts, tools an...
Revised for the 700th anniversary of the author's birth, this richly descriptive tale of medieval Italian life details how ten young Florentines retreat to the countryside to escape the plague-infested city and entertain themselves by telling 100 stories.
A-Z fact-packed guide to MRO leadership and training Industry shorthand for maintenance, repair, and overhaul, MRO is the key to air carrier safety and profitability (it could help you see as much as 25% growth over the next 5 years!). Written by Jack Hessburg, the award-winning chief mechanic and developer of the Boeing 777's computerized maintenance system, Air Carrier MRO Handbook fully explains and illustrates MRO in air carrier operations with charts, graphs, forms, tables, data, statistics, and figures -- the most complete and usable collection of MRO data ever assembled. This expert tunes up your knowledge base so you can streamline all phases and facets of operation. This is the resource you need to help your managers, engineers and technicians work within the industry's guidelines and interdependent network to facilitate partnerships, leadership, and profits.
