Safety in the Air: Technology, People and Practice
Jun 15, 2015
A lecture concerning aviation safety: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/safety-in-the-air-technology-people-and-practice
Flying is one of the safest modes of travel, and few of us consider a weekend flight to the Continent as hazardous, or crossing the Atlantic as a risky business. Air safety covers everything from aircraft loading and technical standards to the dangers of birdstrike, icefalls, volcanic ash and low-flying aircraft. How is air safety controlled and regulated and how safe can we really be?
The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/safety-in-the-air-technology-people-and-practice
