Aviation Forensics

Aircraft accidents result when the “error chain” is NOT broken. The “error chain” represents a chain of events, any one of which if broken, would have prevented that accident from happening. Air Force studies have indicated that, on average, there are seven opportunities to stop an accident from occurring. Typically, some combination of the following come into play and contribute to the accident: weather; aeronautical decision making (“ADM”); aircraft maintenance issues; design and operating limitations of the aircraft, its systems, avionics or propulsion characteristics; operating procedures; adequacy of aircraft flight manual (“AFM”); flight and simulator training; human factors including pilot workload and cockpit design features, physiological issues; and the adequacy of FAA regulatory operating and aircraft design requirements.
