The Adverse Effects of Implementation of the Novel Systems in the Aviation Industry in Pursuit of Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS)
MetadataShow full item record
In the aviation history, there are many remarkable accidents. But rare of them are close to each other with the same types of aircraft. Basically, incidents are categorized as the Controlled Flight into the Terrain (CFIT) accidents and Loss-of-Control (LOC) in-flight accidents. For preventing these accidents, the training system and certification methodology are designed meticulously. Recovering from emergencies is the most important part of the Air Transport Pilot License (ATPL) and during their tough training period, the cadets are trained primarily against adverse situations. However, there are some iconic fatal accidents that we have information regarding pilots’ unawareness of the adverse situation. From crash investigation reports, it might be thought that these accidents are originated from Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS). MCAS is a novel technology implementation for Boeing 737 Max Aircrafts. But MCAS is just a technical issue. The conventional approach for type certification carries potential risks for novel technologies. In this study, an investigation has been made through the near term fatal accidents which are originated by MCAS. It has been claimed by the author, who is a pilot, before assuming the technical implementations; the certification process should be put under the magnifier.
