The mentor is primarily responsible for supervising the student’s progress on the Capstone Project, however an evaluation team comprised of the mentor, Capstone Coordinator, and a representative from the student’s academic division will assess the written report and the oral presentation. Peer-evaluations will also be included for students working on group projects. Deadlines for required submissions will be strictly enforced. Final reports submitted after the deadline will be considered late, and may not be accepted by the evaluating team. If accepted, a penalty may be assessed. Mentors The mentor will serve as the student’s supervisor for the Capstone Project, and is influential in maintaining the quality of the Capstone learning experience. While a mentor, as well as other individuals, will be resources the student may use in the development of the Capstone Project, the student is responsible for satisfying the established standards required for the successful completion of the project. Specific mentor responsibilities are described separately in the Handbook. Due to the time commitment required for effective mentoring, it is recommended that mentors initiate working with no more than three individual student projects or two student group projects in an academic year. Students should spend some time talking with individuals they
6-12 courses will be project based; scholars will work year-around on a capstone project that will be presented to a group of teachers at the end of the academic year
Currently the majority of the UAVs operated by the United States are military assets, and as such are subject to policies, requirements and regulations of the military. These safety requirements will be briefly discussed. As unmanned systems are integrated into national airspace they will be operated in increasing numbers by civil operators, for this reason we will also look at civil safety requirements. UAS will also present some unique situations which have up to this point not been experienced; this will require new areas to be incorporated into the aviation industrial safety arena to ensure our current level of safety is not degraded through their inclusion. This paper will investigate aviation industrial safety as it applies specifically to
This paper will review the July 10, 2007 aviation accident involving a Cessna 310R, N501N, operated by the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing corporate aviation division as a personal flight. The aircraft crashed while attempting an emergency in to Orlando Sanford International Airport, Sanford, Florida after experiencing an in-flight fire. The flight had been released for flight despite it having a known unrepaired maintenance discrepancy. Safety issues discussed in this paper relate to the resetting of circuit breakers, the inspection and maintenance of electrical systems in general aviation aircraft, and the establishment of safety management systems in general aviation corporate aviation operations. Safety
The student will investigate, compare, contrast, analyze and form conclusions to current aviation, aerospace, and industry-related topics in safety systems, including systems safety, industrial safety, accident investigation and analysis, transportation security, airport safety and certification, safety program management, and aviation psychology.
The terrorist attacks on September 11 2001 will have a permanent affect on the global culture. Nearly every decision, process, design in the aviation community will be affected from these attacks. The masterminds behind these attaches could not have envisioned how much the world would change from these acts.
American Airlines Flight 1420 is the aircraft that I will be writing about in this essay. It is classified as a runway overrun accident. The department that investigated the accident was the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB). Human factors will be the focus in this project by using the Human Factor Analysis and Classification System (HFAC) Model. I will be focusing on two different human factor areas and relate those to the chain of event that caused the aircraft to overrun the runway.
Everyday millions of people fly on airplanes. It is an easy and fast way of traveling for work, vacations or to see family members. Statically air travel is safer than traveling by car, airplanes have higher fatality accidents. The reasons airplanes crash vary and can happen during takeoff, landing or during flight. “August 1985 witnessed more passenger and crew deaths on commercial airlines than any other month.” [http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-33931693.]
Flight 1420 was a disaster that taught the aviation community several important lessons. All the Seven Major Elements of Aviation safety can be seen as contributing factors but the greatest factor was human error and the impact of pilot fatigue. With proper preventative measures, the pilots probably would have had the time to arm the MD-82’s spoiler system and the flight would have touched down safely.
The movement of millions of passengers over distances thought impossible decades ago is symbolic of the modern air transportation era that is characterized by speed, comfort and personal convenience. The commerce of aviation, both the operation of commercial aircraft for profit and the development of aeronautical systems, is also an important symbol of national prestige and a powerful economic force. Safety in air transportation is therefore a matter of significant national importance.
The Senior Exit Project allows your to delve into a topic of interest within your pathway. Additionally, it will help to develop skills that pertain to your pathway and any future endeavors. The graduation project will refine skills that will enable you to be successful in higher education, in the workplace, and in today’s global markets. Your success will be bolstered by the strong support of the school faculty, parents, and the community at large. The relationships
The NextGen Air Transportation System is a complex, revolutionary redevelopment of the broad U.S. air traffic control system that includes many challenging and interrelated components and concepts, including a fundamental transfer from a RADAR, ground-based system to a GPS, satellite-based system. Its multi-year implementation, touches virtually every aspect of aviation operations. As such, it presents many potential human factors challenges that can potentially directly affect aviation safety. Next, I will creatively apply the knowledge of human factors and aviation safety that I have developed over the
The aviation community has to constantly keep innovating to help ease congestion in the air space, and keep passengers safe. The implementation of the airport modernization act has continued to aid the aviation industry, and as a result we have seen improvement in technology, and airport operations. Human error has continue to be an issue in the aviation industry, as noted by the author in How Traffic Control Keeps you Safe, but airlines still has some of the best safety records amongst the modes of transportation. The article gave great example of the current issues in the aviation industry, and how they are using technology to their advantage to help lesson these risk. There is always going to be accidents in the aviation industry, but taking right steps to make sure that numbers of mistakes are slim to none is something that will help aid to the growth of the
The science of human factors in aviation has a come along way since the days of the Wright brothers in 1913 but it did not actually start with them. According to Dr. Bill Johnson, Chief Scientist at the Federal Aviation Administration, human factors “dates back to the 1600s when Leonardo da Vinci drew the Vitruvian Man, with all the anthropometric measures, [when] he was trying to decide if a human was strong enough to propel an aircraft” (FAA, 2012). Long after the work of da Vinci, human factors has brought advancements to aircraft design while creating a greater understanding of the human role in mishaps.
