Rule two pilots. whether ICAO innovation is appropriate?


Not so long ago it was reported that the organization ICAO intends in the next few months to introduce the so-called rule of mandatory presence on board passenger airliners two pilots, and, the pilots will not be allowed to leave the cabin during the whole flight, which is currently led a number of major scandals society and the civil aviation sector as a whole.



American experts decided to turn to conduct research about whether safer to fly in the cabin to find two pilots than one. The studies were conducted over several months, and eventually yielded important results.



As it turned out in the analysis of all major air accidents that occurred in the world in the period from 1977 to 2014, the probability of an aircraft crash in the presence of two crew members in the cockpit is higher than if one pilot was present in the cockpit, which emphasizes that it is far from the factor of presence on their seats of the crew members of the airliner affect the unfolding of events. A number of world air carriers have already confirmed their unwillingness to accept the new conditions of the organization for the management of civil aviation, especially since, most likely, the execution of the decree cannot be controlled in any way.



In the course of the conducted studies, it became known that of the 107 incidents that occurred, 40 of them happened in the presence of one member of the crew in their place, and 67 - in the presence of both pilots. At first glance, it may seem that some errors have occurred in the course of the research, but if you logically look at things, you can understand that two pilots can have different opinions about how to avoid a dangerous situation, and here the chance of that Something will go wrong, much higher. Among other things, it is important to take into account also those reasons that are not at all dependent on the crew members, in particular, the inclusion of birds in the engine, depressurization, technical malfunctions that appear during the flight, etc.

It should also take into account the psychological component of innovation by ICAO, in particular, has a view of the tense atmosphere, which in turn increases the chance of the aviation incident, which ultimately leads to an increase in the number of emergency and air crashes.
