    This paper contains a brief review of some of the literature concerning the part that medical factors may play in the causation of road accidents, together with the results of three further studies. Two general categories of research are considered: (a) the results of routine medical examination of drivers; and (b) the investigation of accidents with a view to identifying any responsible Cited by: system design, and aircraft design. A checklist based on a systems approach to understanding human behavior in aircraft accidents was used to identify human factors that contributed to general aviation accidents. Accidents studied were selected randomly from all National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) accident Size: 5MB. The FAA may have an interest when the aircraft and/or equipment is common to both civil and military aviation or when there are environmental factors of common interest. (4) In a military aircraft accident (mishap) in which a mutual interest exists but no FAA function is or may be involved, the FAA may request to participate in the investigation.

During the investigation of aircraft accidents occurring within the jurisdiction of the United States, autopsied biological samples (blood, urine, liver, kidney, vitreous fl uid, and other body specimens) collected from pilot fatalities of civil aircraft accidents are submitted to CAMI for toxicological analyses (1).

Fatal Civil Aircraft Accidents: Their Medical and Pathological Investigation focuses on relevant literature and discussions of the impact of medical and pathological investigation on fatal flying accidents. The publication first elaborates on public transport accidents, natural disease in the operating crew, impaired efficiency Medical and toxicological factors in aircraft accidents book a pilot due 4/5(2).

This chapter presents the study of 74 fatal civil aircraft accidents, almost all of which were investigated by pathologists with special interest in the work. A comprehensive pathological investigation might reveal a probable medical cause of an aircraft accident when that cause would otherwise be unsuspected or have insubstantial evidence to.

In most cases, the main purpose of the medical investigation of the deceased would be to ascertain whether disease or toxicological findings could have precipitated the crash.

Medical factors do play a significant role in accident causation because most sky sports are single-pilot-operated, and incapacitation of the pilot can lead to a crash. Unfortunately, aviation accidents involving aircraft operated under Part do occur. From an aviation safety perspective, it is important to determine why these accidents take place.

The purpose of this study was to examine the toxicological findings obtained from pilots involved in aircraft accidents operated under these regula-tions.

Investigations into the causes of aircraft accidents often focus on what happened and who did it - but very rarely on why, which is the question the author addresses in this book. He propounds that the cause should be sought deeper inside human beings who make simple human errors rather than /5(30).

The term “human factors” is increasingly used in modern times. All accidents usually have multiple contributing cause and factors which lead to a series of events causing the accident.

Three of the most common cause and factors involved in a crash are the aircraft itself, the environment, or personnel (NTSB, ).

Personnel factors are the leading cause of aircraft accidents. Most accidents had more than one contributing factor. Over 70% of the accidents involved pilot factors. The most common pilot factors related to poor judgement and decision making.

In recent years, BASI has recognised that while pilot factors are of great importance, accidents frequently have their origins in systemic or organisational failings. human factors that cause aircraft accidents Sixty-seven per cent of “cause determined” aircraft accidents occurring in the U.
