Revealing 22. Januar 2013
Von Tara - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Wow! What a read. It's going to be hard for me to get on any more MD-80s, 737s, or an Airbus every again. Even though I LOVE airplanes. This book was incredibly insightful. Perfect for an aviation buff such as myself. Having had an "insider view" into some aspects of these things in my career as a mechanic, I felt as though I was getting the full 411 for a change.

I love Air Emergency. I have this sick obsession with airplane crashes. What causes them? Was it mechanical? I think that's partly because in all my aviation career, that possibility was always in the back of my mind, ensuring I did my job carefully. This book brings up many air crashes and disasters, some I watched on that show, some that were new to me. My one and only quibble is the book leads with introducing a flight crew and telling us they crashed, but never do they tell us why. Urgh! I felt teased. If it did reveal the reason, it was so far later, I didn't make the connection.

But...things I learned that blew me away:

Your baby and your child under 7 are NOT safe on commercial planes. Babies on the lap: not safe. The likelihood of your baby surviving in severe turbulence or a rapid brake landing: nil. Seatbelts are made for adults, not children, as it can severely damage their pelvises and abdominal area in a crash. Talk your airline about a "car seat" and NEVER use loop belts. Incredible data was revealed in this.

Fatigue: bad problem.

Counterfeit parts: Yikes!

Boeing and their 737 NGs. Wow. This chapter talks about a major scandal and cover up regarding parts Boeing bought from a company... The company claimed they were computer made when in reality, they were man made with sharpie markers and hand saws and you have aircraft flying around that shouldn't be. This chapter was my favorite. Very revealing.

It talked about how the big airlines to save money are not really hiring mechanics, but people off the street with one mechanic supervising, training them for a mere specialty.....Been there. *nods*

And oh, also, how the engine air is circulating through the aircraft with oil fumes in it so we breathe that stuff in. Flight crews often have a high rate of cancer because of this.

A very eye-opening book. The last chapter is about how YOU can make flying safe for yourself.

Four stars. Wish the crashes had been better explained. I bought this on Amazon. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in aviation or those who fly often.

A good read for airline passengers 8. Februar 2013
Von Wayne A. Allen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
In this book, the authors do a credible job of documenting the current (2012) state of airline safety. Although clearly the safest way to travel long distances, passenger safety has been compromised significantly since the beginning of the worldwide economic downturn. All parties including the manufacturers, the airlines, governments, and airports have been operating under immense financial pressures. Once well paid pilots are a thing of the past, and those employed by regional carriers often earn less than $15,000 a year. The airlines are under constant threat of bankruptcy or takeover and as a consequence cut corners on maintenance and repair. Passengers have also contributed to this undesirable situation by seeking out low fares --- understandable given economic circumstances.
Perhaps only time will lead to improvements in passenger safety. In the meantime, the last chapters of the book offer some useful tips to the travelling public to reduce the chances of being in an aviation accident.

Thought provoking - especially for an industry insider! 20. Juli 2013
Von Carolyn W. Pope - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Enjoyed this book... As a flight attendant for a major U.S. carrier, I appreciate information that is credible. This book provided me not only with insight, but also with potential tools and information that I might use to keep myself and my passengers safe.

Thank you for publishing this book!

This book is well written and informative. An insider's perspective on commercial aviation and issues that the public should be aware of.

Important, but sloppy 25. Juli 2013
Von J. Trajen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This book is important, so it is a shame that it is so poorly edited and produced. Typos abound, words are missing, and there are egregious errors of all sorts. For example, "formally" is used at one place when "formerly" is what is intended. Weirdest of all, I suppose, is the location of the Foreward, which for some reason has been placed near the end of the book.

I have read one of Glenn Meade's books, and it was much better done than this thing. And that's too bad, because the information here really is important. The information on children in airplanes is worth the price if you ever fly with kids. And the main point, that money-hungry airlines are perfectly happy to put their profits ahead of passenger safety if it increases their bottom line, and that they get cooperation from the government bodies that are supposed to regulate them--well, this is something it is vitally important to keep pointing out.
