The most comprehensive coverage to date of Air France 447, an Airbus A330 that crashed in the ocean north of Brazil on June 1, 2009, killing all 228 persons on board.

Written by A330 Captain, Bill Palmer, this book opens to understanding the actions of the crew, how they failed to understand and control the problem, and how the airplane works and the part it played. All in easy to understand terms.
Addressed are the many contributing aspects of weather, human factors, and airplane system operation and design that the crew could not recover from. How each contributed is covered in detail along with what has been done, and needs to be done in the future to prevent this from happening again.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Insightful and well written 6. Januar 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Bill Palmer’s analysis of the events leading to the accident is insightful and well written. Many concepts of modern civil aviation are explained short enough not to bore those who understand them already, but very efficiently to those who are not familiar with them.

There is only one point, where, in my opinion, the book falls short of its promise:

Bill Palmer presents evidence that the First Officer Robert in the left seat and Captain Dubois, standing behind, where not fully aware of the control inputs that First Officer Bonin in the right seat, acting as flying pilot, was giving, and which were contrary to returning to the intended flight path and at times contrary to their instructions.
This is, as the author acknowledges, furthered, if not completely due to the fact, that the sidestick flight controls for both pilots on the Airbus A330 are not interconnected as on conventional aircraft and airliners of other major manufacturers (including Boeing). The author states that there are “those that believe [the sidestick] design to be a contributing factor” to the accident.

At this point I would expect a deeper analysis of the effects of not being able to accurately see or feel the control inputs made by the other pilot. As the author states, recovery of the aircraft, which was rapidly approaching the limits of its flight envelope, became progressively more difficult as the seconds passed while an aggressive pitch up attitude was commanded with the stick held full back most of the time.

Many other points are revisited several times and examined in great detail: For example, it is repeated four times in different places that the yaw damper presumably performed very well and possibly kept the aircraft from entering a spin.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Must read 8. August 2013
Von Are Johnsen - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I fly the A330, the author was one of my simulator instructors when I checked out 7 years ago. Capt Palmer wrote our operating manual for the A330, and writes an excellent analysis of this accident. This book is a must read for any Airbus pilot or anyone wishing to understand more about this accident.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A must-read for pilots and any aviation enthusiast! 10. August 2013
Von El Puma - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
It would be great if there would never have been a need to write this book. However, if this book weren't written now, it would have to be written at some point, for some aircraft and some other airline.

AF447 was a tragedy. It is, at first thought, amazing how a modern airliner with highest technology and highly trained crew on board can simply disappear. Bill Palmer dissects that fateful night in admirable detail. He takes you there - from the initial moment of strange indications, to the incomprehension in the cockpit, to the disastrous ending - as well as to the pain-staking investigation and final report. You live the cockpit conversations, you feel the confusion, you can smell the desperation. It's not a suspenseful novel - you already know the outcome. What you learn here is the detailed, second-by-second analysis of what went on and what went wrong.

Bill writes with the technical perspective of someone who understands the accident aircraft in finest detail. Of someone who understands the benefits as well as shortcomings of Airline Training in its finest detail. Of someone who understands Human Factors. Every accident is the result of a chain of events. Bill does not assign fault. And he offers solutions to prevent recurrence of a similar accident.

I admire the author for his tenacious research, and for creating a work that appeals to everyone with a basic amount of technical understanding - from basic aviation enthusiasts to airline instructors: As an aviation enthusiast I was utterly fascinated by the read. As an airline pilot I was incredulous. And as an A330-pilot the book had a profound impact on me.

Captain Palmer draws attention to a somewhat overlooked problem not only in aviation but also in many other fields that have undergone a rapid paradigm-shift in technological advance: Do Humans run technology, or does technology run the Humans?

I am not a pilot, and not even work in an air related company (port, plane, craft).

This book is all about process: identifying a problem, procedures, communication and action.

5.0 von 5 Sternen What your airline doesn't teach you. Interesting read for aviation enthusiasts. 12. Februar 2014
Von Mark A. McClain - Veröffentlicht auf
Captain Palmer has gone to great lengths to explain the various causal factors in this unfortunate accident. The in depth discussion is a must read for all but the few Airbus gurus out there. As a professional pilot for over 35 years that is current, qualified and actively flying the A330 I gained a much better understanding of the Airbus flight control, automation and indication systems. As a "Boeing guy" for many years the narrative and writing style made the discussion much more interesting than the "stale bread" that aircraft manuals can be. As I read I wondered if airline training could be better served by telling more stories about the aircraft we fly, in lieu of droning through facts, figures and graphs. The way Captain Palmer breaks down the systems certainly increased my knowledge of the A330. I just finished my recurrent training last month and finally felt I could keep up with the instructor during the systems review. A must read for professional pilots.

The layperson can also gain a lot of understanding of the modern airliner, the airline industry and the challenges faced by pilots everyday and night, just as the Air France pilots did. There are some fairly technical discussions but for those who don't want to immerse themselves in those aspects just bypass those discussions to focus on the big picture story of an accident that has served as an overdue wake up call for all of us in the aviation industry.

I will keep this book for future reference, when I get it back from the long list of other pilots who have already borrowed my copy.

5.0 von 5 Sternen True to its title 10. Oktober 2013
Von Gulfstream 550 Pilot - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is authoritative, clear, and objective about an accident that never should have happened on many different levels. It does a great job of explaining Fly by Wire controls, Airbus design, aerodynamics, weather, human error, and the other various factors involved in this tragedy. I like the way it divides the pilots' loss of control of the aircraft into 4 phases, so it is easier to understand. And I like the way it concludes with lessons for the future that are spot on. It is a good read for all levels of aviation enthusiasts.
