Loss of Control in Flight Accidents and Air Traffic Dispatchers


Loss of Control in Flight Accidents 

One of the most dangerous flight accidents that air traffic dispatchers have to deal with is an accident due to loss of control. A loss of control accident, or LOC, involves an unintended departure of an aircraft from a controlled flight. In other words, loss of control accidents occur when an aircraft departs from its regular flight regime and experiences a stall or spin. Flight dispatchers need to understand how to approach these types of situations so that they would know how to handle a situation like this if one were to arise.

When Do Out of Control Flights Mostly Occur? 

The phase of a flight where the loss of control typically takes place is during the approach phase of a flight. Many accidents related to an out-of-control flight result from an unstabilized approach or even a failure to go around. Since air traffic dispatchers are involved in this aspect of a flight, it is important to make sure that this stage of a flight is thoroughly planned, especially its altitude, which is a primary factor in out-of-control flights. 

Another reason that loss of control accidents during flights occur is the fact that excessive speed and unfavorable weather can contribute to a de-stabilized approach. This means that it is extremely important for an air traffic dispatcher to take these into account when making their flight plan. 

What Are Other Contributing Factors for Aircraft Loss of Control Accidents? 

Obviously, not all the responsibility for a loss of control in a flight accident falls upon the air traffic dispatcher. There are many factors that contribute to this kind of accident, and many are related to the pilot. This includes poor judgment or aeronautical training that the pilot did not take into account. This usually occurs with inexperienced pilots. It is important to make sure that the pilot follows the plan that was laid out from the beginning from what was learned in aeronautics school or flight classes.
