Robert said to Dubois, “We completely lost control of the airplane, and we don’t understand anything! We tried everything!”

Airplanes have been built in countries around the world for decades

So here is the picture at that moment: the airplane was in steady-state cruise, pointing straight ahead without pitching up or down, and with the power set perfectly to deliver a tranquil .80 Mach. The turbulence was so light that one could have walked the aisles—though perhaps a bit unsteadily. Aside from a minor blip in altitude indication, the only significant failure was the indication of airspeed—but the airspeed itself was unaffected. No crisis existed. The episode should have been a non-event, and one that would not last long. The airplane was in the control of the pilots, and if they had done nothing, they would have done all they needed to do.

He kept his job. In professional flying, a historic shift has occurred. In the privacy of the cockpit and beyond public view, pilots have been relegated to mundane roles as system managers, expected to monitor the computers and sometimes to enter data via keyboards, but to keep their hands off the controls, and to intervene only in the rare event of a failure. As a result, the routine performance of inadequate pilots has been elevated to that of average pilots, and average pilots don’t count for much. If you are building an airliner and selling it globally, this turns out to be a good thing. Since the 1980s, when the shift began, the safety record has improved fivefold, to the current one fatal accident for every five million departures. No one can rationally advocate a return to the glamour of the past.


Well here are the Top 10 Biggest Airplanes in the world in action

First, you put the Clipper Skipper out to pasture, because he has the unilateral power to screw things up. You replace him with a teamwork concept—call it Crew Resource Management—that encourages checks and balances and requires pilots to take turns at flying. Now it takes two to screw things up. Next you automate the component systems so they require minimal human intervention, and you integrate them into a self-monitoring robotic whole. You throw in buckets of redundancy. You add flightmanagement computers into which flight paths can be programmed on the ground, and you link them to autopilots capable of handling the airplane from the takeoff through the rollout after landing. You design deeply considered minimalistic cockpits that encourage teamwork by their very nature, offer excellent ergonomics, and are built around displays that avoid showing extraneous information but provide alerts and status reports when the systems sense they are necessary. Finally, you add fly-by-wire control. At that point, after years of work and billions of dollars in development costs, you have arrived in the present time. As intended, the autonomy of pilots has been severely restricted, but the new airplanes deliver smoother, more accurate, and more efficient rides—and safer ones too.

Mr. Diaz, I received my model Piper Colt this past weekend. Like the other models, it is beautiful. Thank you so much for your professional models.
I will remember you and pass customers to you. Thanks again. Bill Hartsell.

For now the night was smooth and clear. Thirty-one minutes after takeoff, the autopilot leveled the airplane at 35,000 feet, nearly as high as the Airbus could fly, given the outside air temperature and the airplane’s weight; the automatic throttles set the thrust to achieve the selected 0.82 Mach, which in thin air translated into an aerodynamic speed of 280 knots, and, with the tailwind factored in, delivered a ground speed of 540 miles an hour. More than a thousand parameters were registered start to finish, for the entire duration of the trip, by the airplane’s data recorder. The cockpit voice recorder, by contrast, was a self-erasing loop, a bit more than two hours long, restricted because of long-standing privacy concerns by pilots. As a result, the voice recording opened on the scene two hours and five minutes before the end, or one hour and forty minutes into the flight.

A weather text came in from the dispatchers in Paris, accompanied by a depiction of the developing line of thunderstorms ahead. Neither pilot made mention of it, but later comments hint that Bonin was growing nervous. Dubois then sowed confusion by answering an air-traffic controller’s call to another Air France flight and insisting on it despite Bonin’s weak suggestions that he had gotten the call sign wrong. After a few minutes the controller gracefully sorted out the tangle and gave Flight 447 a frequency change. Similar confusions arose over required reporting points and frequencies ahead, but Bonin did not intervene. Conversation in the cockpit was desultory, generally about flight planning, sometimes not. The airplane sailed over the port city of Natal and headed out to sea.
