CHIRP Air Transport FEEDBACK Edition 140

Air Transport FEEDBACK 140 covers a wide-ranging set of issues reported to CHIRP during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic period.  

The editorial focuses on the need to proactively report across the whole spectrum of safety concerns so that we can identify emerging themes before they become critical  – one such theme being the growing pressure on individuals’ rosters and associated FTL/FDP as airlines return to fuller schedules with reduced crew availability.  Other reports include systems under pressure due to the sub-optimal introduction of new technology, and the second-order impact that third-parties can have on safety at the coal-face.
