The Need Of Quality Airplane Equipment In Correlation With Safety

Apr 3, 2008
There is a widespread public fear that airplanes are dangerous. In many senses, the fear might be well founded. But as statistics show, actual fatalities regarding airplanes are quite low. Even still, it is important for hobbyist pilots and mechanics to educate themselves on proper airplane safety and the importance of proper airplane equipment.

The Federal Aviation Administration

To help protect the aviation industry and those who take part in it, the FAA was created. The Federal Aviation Administration, in reality, does not currently put a large emphasis on the checking of airplane parts for quality standards.

Indeed, many airplanes are comprised of foreign parts, which is not necessarily a bad thing. Parts can be manufactured in countries such as China, Brazil, or Italy much cheaper than what they can be in other countries. Therefore, airlines tend to go the "cheap way out," and outsource their equipment.

But because of the lack of safety checking, substandard parts have found their way into other countries such as the United States. In fact, the FAA has made a report indicating that several engine failures were caused by unapproved changes made at the manufacturing level. One of the engine failures was during an actual flight- meaning consumers were put at risk because of this bargain hunting.

To come up with a solution, the FAA reevaluated their efforts in finding the best quality for the best price. In the end, the department agreed to make more on-site inspections of foreign manufacturers, and to also include inspection standards as the parts make their way into US territory.

Airplane Safety for Consumers

Airplane equipment safety for consumers isn't a subject that provides much options. Consumers can't choose airliners based on where they buy their airplane equipment. Pilots can, however, choose to buy their own equipment from manufacturers that have a good reputation. In that way, the quality of service is guaranteed.

There are several tips that can help improve the safety of a consumer when airplane equipment fails. Although there is the myth that one spot on a plane is safer than another, this is usually false. There are too many variables and scenarios that are present to decide what the best spot on an airplane is in regards to survival.

Consumers can, however, increase their likelihood of avoiding disaster by following the directions present on most planes. Depending on the make and class of the plane, certain safety devices should be made available to the consumer in the event of an emergency.

Of the many safety devices, the oxygen masks are quite important- as they help reduce the risk of losing consciousness. Other floating devices can ensure that one can survive even if a plane fails over a body of water. Some personal planes even include parachutes, just in case jumping out of the plane at the last second is the only option.

For a conclusion, it really is about the quality of airplane equipment that the airplane owner invests in. It is highly recommended that if you are a pilot yourself, that you invest in quality airplane equipment only. That way, you can ensure the best possible safety for you and your passengers.
