Aviation Maintenance & Real World Safety – Episode 168

Aviation maintenance professionals are critical to safety. John Goglia helped put the spotlight on aviation maintenance and safety programs at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University recently. John did a presentation on Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT) Day and witnessed first-hand some safety operations in place at the university.

Greg Feith also reviews lessons learned from the fatal June 1999 crash of American Airlines Flight 1420 in Little Rock, Arkansas. The NTSB investigation showed the role that being in a rush played in the crash that involved 9 fatalities.

  • A rush to beat 2 converging thunderstorms
  • A rush to finish within duty hour limits
  • A rush to maintain the flight schedule

Greg shares important research that provides insight into why the pilot may have made the decisions that led to this air crash.

5 star Review for Flight Safety Detectives

Your breakdown of the Lion Air Max accident has been the best I’ve heard. It’s not about pinning blame. It’s about education and prevention.

“Best show ever on the tube”

“Your analysis of the preliminary report into the Lion Air 610 was brilliant.”

“I enjoy the podcast. As your average passenger it’s a comfort to know that there are people working hard to ensure safety.”

“My favourite channel”

“Your podcasts are fantastic ! It’s really great to hear You and John discussing aviation subjects in such fine detail!”

“Excellent podcasts and detailed information. Keep up the brilliant work. Respect to you both from Scotland.”

Your show is just fantastic. I’m in my 50th year as a pilot, to include missionary flying in Africa, 30 years with American, and still flying a 604. Nothing I listen to can beat the down-to-earth wisdom and insight you guys bring.
