Emergency and Abnormal Situations: A Review of ASRS Reports  (2003)
Abstract Header
Emergency and abnormal situations in flight operations are relatively rare. When they do occur, though, we would like them handled as smoothly as possible. However, we know things don’t always work out as planned. A review of ASRS reports involving emergency or abnormal situations revealed that many complications do occur while flight crews work to resolve their problems. These complications often arose from issues around materials used to assist the pilots in these situations, as well as issues concerning the crews’ response to the emergency or abnormal situation. Moreover, it appears that current training practices prepared pilots for only a very small number of the types of situations that actually occurred. Thus, in reports we reviewed, even though pilots usually resolved well those emergency situations for which they had been trained, they often found themselves ill equipped and ill trained for what they had to face.
