Mathematicians are now Air Safety Investigators

Apparently my degree in aviation has no weight anymore – now mathematicians can tell us definitively what happens to our missing planes.

I love it!

Jet Suicides: Weighing in on the safety of Commercial Aviation

New post on The News Hub!

“New Information on Germanwings Crash starts a Media Firestorm”

Reality: statistically nearly impossible to die in a ‘jet suicide’

(Photo Source: NY Post)
The media has been ablaze with information that copilot of Germanwings 9525, Andreas Lubitz likely practiced his controlled descent into terrain on the outbound leg to Barcelona prior to the successful crash into the French Alps on March 24.
The French Civil Aviation Safety Authority has released information indicating that on the previous leg, the copilot was alone in the flight deck and set the selected altitude to descend to 100 when he was cleared to 35 thousand feet. This occurred again when he was cleared to 21 thousand feet. This data suggests he was either practicing his maneuver for the return flight or attempted to crash on the first leg but abandoned his plan. The report also confirms that Lubitz’s mental health was questioned in the past, although later approved with restrictions.

Many people that know I have an aviation background ask me (and I’ve written on this topic before): is flying safe? My simple answer: absolutely.

Branching Out!

Hello everyone!

No I haven’t fallen off the face of the planet – Just been busy getting ready for the big move to OKC next week & saying my goodbyes to all my GREAT friends here in Daytona!

I have lots of stories in the works from the WAI conference BUT!!! News never stops (even for my lagging in transcriptions) therefore a news story literally FELL into my hands today and I just HAD to put it to the top of my to-do list and write about it RIGHT THIS SECOND.

An editor of The News Hub found my blog & Facebook page and asked me to write a news style article for them about Germanwings 9525…

So that’s what I did.

I always feel terrible writing when tragedy strikes, but as a journalist it literally is my job to keep people informed. So without further rambling… here is my latest published article about Germanwings 9525. #InDeepSorrow

I would REALLY appreciate if you all would SHARE my link and UPVOTE my post on The News Hub – the way the pay structure works is I only get paid if I get LOTS of exposure. I really appreciate it!

“NextGen Program Gains ADS-B Implmentation”

Another one bites the dust!

avion

I was published this week in my school’s newspaper (on the front page!!!), The Avion, for a story I wrote about the Next Generation Air Traffic Control System phasing in ADS-B. Want to know more? Read the whole article HERE!

The funny part about this story was I pitched to to a fellow blogger (who has a LOT of aviation journalism experience) and she didn’t want to pick it up… so I changed a few things around and made it better suited for my school’s paper and they picked it up the week I submitted it.  It’s funny how that worked out, I thought I had spent all this time researching and writing this article only for it to be turned down… yet I actually got it in print media rather than online. (And kudos from the editor!)

Thanks for following my journey.

Till next time!

Xoxo Chrissi
