Monday Accidents & Lessons Learned: Dumping the Electronic Flight Bag En Route

August 6th, 2018 by

The electronic flight bag (EFB) has demonstrated improved capability to display aviation information such as airport charts, weather, NOTAMs, performance data, flight releases, and weight and balance. This portable electronic hardware has proven facilitative for flight crews in efficiently performing management tasks. While the EFB provides many advantages and extensive improvements for the aviation community in general and for pilots specifically, some unexpected operational threats have surfaced.

NASA’s Aviation Safety and Reporting System (ASRS) has received reports that describe various kinds of EFB anomalies. Today’s particular instance relates to EFB operation in a particular phase of flight:

An ERJ175 pilot attempted to expand the EFB display during light turbulence. Difficulties stemming from the turbulence and marginal EFB location rendered the EFB unusable, so the pilot chose to disregard the EFB entirely.

“We were on short final, perhaps 2,000 feet above field elevation. [It had been a] short and busy flight. I attempted to zoom in to the Jepp Chart, currently displayed on my EFB, to reference some information. The EFB would not respond to my zooming gestures. After multiple attempts, the device swapped pages to a different chart. I was able to get back to the approach page but could not read it without zooming. I attempted to zoom again but, with the light turbulence, I could not hold my arm steady enough to zoom. [There is] no place to rest your arm to steady your hand because of the poor mounting location on the ERJ175.

“After several seconds of getting distracted by…this EFB device, I realized that I was … heads-down for way too long and not paying enough attention to the more important things (e.g., acting as PM). I did not have the information I needed from the EFB. I had inadvertently gotten the EFB onto a company information page, which is bright white rather than the dark nighttime pages, so I turned off my EFB and continued the landing in VMC without the use of my EFB. I asked the PF to go extra slowly clearing the runway to allow me some time to get the taxi chart up after landing.

“… I understand that the EFB is new and there are bugs. This goes way beyond the growing pains. The basic usability is unreliable and distracting. In the cockpit, the device is nearly three feet away from the pilot’s face, mounted almost vertically, at a height level with your knees. All [EFB] gestures in the airplane must be made from the shoulder, not the wrist. Add some turbulence to that, and you have a significant heads-down distraction in the cockpit.”

The award-winning publication and monthly safety newsletter, CALLBACK, from NASA’s Aviation Safety Reporting System, shares reports, such as the one above, that reveal current issues, incidents, and episodes of some common problems that pilots have experienced. In this issue, we learned about precursor events that have occurred during the EFB’s adolescence.

Circumstances can crop up anywhere at any time if proper sequence and procedures are not planned and followed. We encourage you to learn and use the TapRooT® System to apprehend situations and find and fix problems. Attend one of our courses. Among our offerings are a basic 2-Day Course and an advanced 5-Day Course. You may also contact us about having a course at your site.

Monday Accidents & Lessons Learned: Zooming to “Too Low Terrain”

When the Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) platform—frequently a tablet device—was introduced as a human-machine interface into the aviation industry and the cockpit, the platform proved to  facilitate improvements for both pilots and the aviation community, but the human-machine interface has encountered operational threats in the early years of EFB utilization.

NASA’s Aviation Safety Reporting System (ASRS) has received reports that describe various kinds of EFB anomalies. One routine problem occurs when a pilot “zooms,” or expands the screen to enlarge a detail, and unknowingly “slides” important information off the screen, making it no longer visible. A second type of problem manifests itself in difficulty operating the EFB in specific flight or lighting conditions. Yet a third wrinkle relates to EFB operation in a particular flight phase.

Let’s look at what happened in an A319 when “zoom” went awry:

Prior to departure, an A319 crew had to manage multiple distractions. An oversight, a technique, and a subtle EFB characteristic all subsequently combined to produce a unrecognized controlled flight toward terrain.

“We received clearance from Billings Ground, ‘Cleared … via the Billings 4 Departure, climb via the SID.’ During takeoff on Runway 10L from Billings, we entered IMC. The Pilot Flying (PF) leveled off at approximately 4,600 feet MSL, heading 098 [degrees]. We received clearance for a turn to the southeast … to join J136. We initiated the turn and then requested a climb from ATC. ATC cleared us up to 15,000 feet. As I was inputting the altitude, we received the GPWS alert, ‘TOO LOW TERRAIN.’ Immediately, the PF went to Take Off/Go Around (TO/GA) Thrust and pitched the nose up. The Pilot Monitoring (PM) confirmed TO/GA Thrust and hit the Speed Brake handle … to ensure the Speed Brakes were stowed. Passing 7,000 feet MSL, the PM announced that the Minimum Sector Altitude (MSA) was 6,500 feet within 10 nautical miles of the Billings VOR. The PF reduced the pitch, then the power, and we began an open climb up to 15,000 feet MSL. The rest of the flight was uneventful.

“On the inbound leg [to Billings], the aircraft had experienced three APU auto shutdowns. This drove the Captain to start working with Maintenance Control. During the turn, after completion of the walkaround, I started referencing multiple checklists … to prepare for the non-normal, first deicing of the year. I then started looking at the standard items. It was during this time that I looked at the BILLINGS 4 Departure, [pages] 10-3 and 10-3-1. There are no altitudes on … page [10-3], so I referenced [page] 10-3-1. On [page] 10-3-1 for the BILLINGS 4 Departure at the bottom, I saw RWY 10L, so I zoomed in to read this line. When I did the zoom, it cut off the bottom of the page, which is the ROUTING. Here it clearly states, ‘Maintain 15,000 or assigned lower.’ I never saw this line. When we briefed prior to push, the departure was briefed as, ‘Heading 098, climb to 4,600 feet MSL’; so neither the PF nor the PM saw the number 15,000 feet MSL. The 45-minute turn was busy with multiple nonstandard events. The weather was not great. However, that is no excuse for missing the 15,000-foot altitude on the SID.”

The award-winning publication and monthly safety newsletter, CALLBACK, from NASA’s Aviation Safety Reporting System, shares reports, such as the one above, that reveal current issues, incidents, and episodes.

Circumstances can crop up anywhere at any time if proper sequence and procedures are not planned and followed. We encourage you to learn and use the TapRooT® System to apprehend, find, and fix problems. Attend one of our courses. We offer a basic 2-Day Course and an advanced 5-Day Course. You may also contact us about having a course at your site.

How Do You Get to Brazil?

July 29th, 2018 by

Come to Brazil and learn TapRooT® through one of these courses in the fascinating city of Sao Paulo:

Did you know Christ the Redeemer Statue in Rio de Janeiro is one of the 7 Wonders of the World?

  • Related image

Brazil is known for spectacular beaches, the flamboyantly colorful Carnival, and its symbolic statue of Christ the Redeemer at the peak of Corcovado Mountain.

    • Brazil is also home to Sao Paulo, the financial hub of Brazil and where world-renowned Pele played at the legendary stadium Pacaembu.

    • Did you know each Brazilian city has at least one soccer stadium?
  • It’s been called “one of the most beautiful bridges in the world” and “the bridge with the complicated name”—Octavio Frias de Oliveira bridge, or Ponte Estaida, over the Pinheiros River in Sao Paulo is known for its unique architecture. This national landmark is the only bridge in the world with an X-shaped supporting structure, with the cruciform prop supporting two crossing roads of different heights. The bridge’s nighttime lights are spectacular.

    2014-05-23-monkey1955130.jpg

    Fun fact: Brazil has more species of monkeys than anywhere else on earth.

    Se Cathedral and square Free things to do in Sao Paulo

    Sao Paulo See Metropolitan Cathedral (Catedral da Se): Statuesque palms line the square, framing this neo-Gothic Roman Catholic Archdiocese. The structure and its Renaissance-styled dome are inspired by the Cathedral of Florence, and more than 800 tons of unique marble were used to construct the building. All the furniture, mosaics, and sculpture were transported by ship from Italy.

    Patio do Colegio, or “Courtyard of the College,” is Sao Paulo’s oldest building and a historical Jesuit church and school. The Pátio do Colégio is home to the Museu Anchieta, which features a fascinating collection of artifacts and records from the 16th century.

    The Julio Prestes Cultural Center: The Julio Prestes Cultural Center, or the Sala Sao Paulo, was once a train station. With its terrific acoustics and a cool, adjustable ceiling, the hall is a copy of Vienna’s Great Musikverein Hall. The Symphony Orchestra of São Paulo (OSESP) performances are some of the most-attended events in the city. A visit here pairs well with some of the other area attractions: Pinacoteca, Museu da Arte Sacra (Sacred Art Museum), and the Parque da Luz

Pedra Grande: Take a hike on the trail; paraglide the skies over Sao Paulo; take in panoramic views—all from this gem in the middle of the city.

Botanical Garden Of Sao Paulo: With exotic flora, the garden is conservatory of luxuriant landscapes and impressive collections of ornamentals, trees, and groves, as well as many lakes. See the orchid collection; visit the bamboo groves; dine at the great restaurant.

Get a Taste of Brazil

Try what the locals love: Bacalhau is a Brazilian-adopted Portuguese dish containing onions, olives, tomatoes, potatoes, and herbs. Fried fish cakes (bolinho de bacalhau) are consumed with gusto (and often with beer). Tiny tasty rolls (pão de queijo) eaten typically for breakfast—you would call them “cheese bread”—with a cup of coffee with milk (pingado), found in Brazilian bakeries.

Experience the falafels, crispy on the outside and filled with goodness, at Tent of the Nile (Tenda do Nilo).

Taste an African-influenced fritter (acarajé) at Star City
