Guest airsick Posted September 17, 2008 Share Posted September 17, 2008 In light of the recent threads about accidents and what not I got to thinking about crash comics. In each edition of Flight Safety Australia (FSA) they discuss several accidents, incidents or events that might lead to an accident or incident. Some of these reports are written by magazine staff but most are people like us recounting their stories. I look forward to reading these parts of the magazine as I find it fascinating as well as educational to hear of other peoples flying experiences. The RAA magazine pales into comparison with their scant reports of things like 'nose wheel broke on landing' with no more than a paragraph. While these are useful in the context of making you think about safety they are nowhere near as good as the reports in FSA. The FSA articles cover the entire episode and detail the factors that built up to the event. I find this interesting as accidents tend to be caused by a series of errors rather than one. The FSA mag is distributed only to CASA licence holders so a lot of the guys in these forums will not get to read it regularly. I am curious if anyone here thinks the RAA mag should have a little more content in it than what is presently there. By the way, for those that didn't realise the FSA magazine can be read online at http://www.casa.gov.au/fsa/index.asp Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
