Overview

A detailed analysis of the aircraft accident environment with particular emphasis on survivability factors is provided in this course. It explores factors and forces that cause injury and examines the injury role played by impact forces and occupiable space compromises. Students examine crashworthiness and delethalization technologies and concepts with a focus on the best ways to protect occupants during a crash. Selected aircraft accidents are used as case studies. Students also complete an in-depth review of basic kinematics and development of injury-related information.

Who Should Attend

Because aircraft safety affects every individual and department, professionals working in various capacities across the aviation industry can benefit from this knowledge including:

  • Pilots
  • Airport Managers
  • Safety Professionals
  • Airport Risks Managers
  • Aircraft Accident Investigators
  • Aviation Insurance Professionals
  • Aviation Safety Engineers

And other Industry and safety professionals who want to stay on the cutting edge of research and practice focused on mitigating injuries and fatalities caused by aircraft crashes.

Course Objectives

Upon completion of the course, the student will be able to:

  • Describe the history and development of crashworthiness and survivability.
  • Determine the events and forces associated with an aircraft crash.
  • Mathematically analyze the impact forces and "g" forces, which occur in an accident, and describe their channels of force transmission to the occupants.
  • Analyze and critically describe the various protective measures currently employed; and determine alternatives to better provide protection.
  • Complete a "Crash Survival Analysis" rating for fixed-wing and rotor aircraft.
  • Understand the basic principles of "crashworthiness" applicable to general aviation, military, and air transport aircraft.
  • Analyze and critically examine the effect of post-impact fire and its byproducts.
  • Apply the principles of crash survival to the design and outfitting of aircraft.
  • Design and use of evacuation systems and processes.    

Attendees Said...

"Great instructors and very useful material; I've taken several accident investigation courses, but never an entire course devoted solely to crashworthiness / survivability. This course was excellent."
