IHST - Helicopter Flight Data Monitoring

  1. 1. HFDM WORKSHOP INTRODUCTION Helitech International 2013 By: Captain Mike Pilgrim FDM Manager CHC Helicopter Services Co-Chair Global HFDM Steering Group www.HFDM.org Date: 26th Sept 2013
  2. 2. Global HFDM Steering Group • Vision: – Routine and effective utilisation of HFDM in a just culture environment across the global helicopter industry. HFDM Workshop – HeliTech 2013 Sept 26th 2013 – London
  3. 3. Global HFDM Steering Group • Mission: – Improve helicopter safety through provision of focus and leadership on issues concerning the manufacture, provision, support and operation of HFDM systems. HFDM Workshop – HeliTech 2013 Sept 26th 2013 – London
  4. 4. The Definition of Flight Data Monitoring. Flight Data Monitoring (FDM) is the systematic, pro-active and just use of digital flight data from routine operations to improve aviation safety. Flight Data Monitoring (FDM) programmes assist an operator to identify, quantify, assess and address operational risks. HFDM Workshop – HeliTech 2013 Sept 26th 2013 – London
  5. 5. Severity of event Why HFDM? REACTIVE Accidents Active Failures and Latent Threats Serious incidents Minor incidents PROACTIVE? Routine operations FREQUENCY OF EVENT HFDM Workshop – HeliTech 2013 Sept 26th 2013 – London
  6. 6. This is Why IIII FDM O O HFDM Workshop – HeliTech 2013 Sept 26th 2013 – London
  7. 7. Flight Data Monitoring Data will only be worth anything if the aircraft is actually doing something. • What do we mean by Flight? So ‘flight’ is from power on to power off HFDM Workshop – HeliTech 2013 Sept 26th 2013 – London
  8. 8. Flight Data Monitoring Anything about the state of the aircraft that can be recorded: • and Data? Airspeed Rate of climb/descent Flight control positions Engines / rotors / temps & pressures HFDM Workshop – HeliTech 2013 Sept 26th 2013 – London
  9. 9. Flight Data Monitoring Careful analysis of groups of data for indications of anything undesirable. • What about monitoring? So what does it look like? HFDM Workshop – HeliTech 2013 Sept 26th 2013 – London
  10. 10. Flight Data – Take-Off HFDM Workshop – HeliTech 2013 Sept 26th 2013 – London
  11. 11. Flight Data – Altitude Altitude HFDM Workshop – HeliTech 2013 Sept 26th 2013 – London
  12. 12. Flight Data – Pitch Pitch Attitude HFDM Workshop – HeliTech 2013 Sept 26th 2013 – London
  13. 13. How do we get the data? Solid State Quick Access Recorder HFDM Workshop – HeliTech 2013 Sept 26th 2013 – London
  14. 14. Aircraft without FDRs Stand alone units Power Earth Geospatial Digital (Optional) Video (Optional) Engine Data HFDM Workshop – HeliTech 2013 Sept 26th 2013 – London
  15. 15. Now I have the knowledge Start compiling your trend information Its not about individual incidents Aggregate the event types Produce readable reports Involve your staff Don’t talk about individual events in terms of the crews who flew them HFDM Workshop – HeliTech 2013 Sept 26th 2013 – London
  16. 16. Case Study #1 Approach Deviation HFDM Workshop – HeliTech 2013 Sept 26th 2013 – London
  17. 17. Case Study #1 Approach Deviation • Deviation From Flight Path – Picked up by ATC – Air Safety Report submitted – FSO Interested but no Immediate Action • FDM Programme? HFDM Workshop – HeliTech 2013 Sept 26th 2013 – London
  18. 18. What the FDM had seen! Elemental SMS Solutions HFDM Workshop – HeliTech 2013 Sept 26th 2013 – London
  19. 19. Case Study #1 Approach Deviation Deviation From Procedure – Picked up by ATC Air Safety Report submitted FSO noted incident FDM Data Checked – Multiple events found FDM Manager & FSO Meeting HFDM Workshop – HeliTech 2013 Sept 26th 2013 – London
  20. 20. Case Study 2 Expedited Approaches Crews report ATC requests to expedite approaches FDM High Rate of Descent Events HFDM Workshop – HeliTech 2013 Sept 26th 2013 – London
  21. 21. HFDM Workshop – HeliTech 2013 Sept 26th 2013 – London
  22. 22. Rate of Descent 700ft -1000fpm 30 SECS Pilot Radio Key Workshop – HFDM HeliTech 2013 Sept 26th 2013 – London 150ft
  23. 23. HFDM Workshop – HeliTech 2013 Sept 26th 2013 – London
  24. 24. Case Study 2 Solution? ATC – Expedite only when safety dictates Crews – Take responsibility and respond accordingly. HFDM Workshop – HeliTech 2013 Sept 26th 2013 – London
  25. 25. Flight Data Monitoring Demonstrable safety: Don’t just think you’re safe, KNOW YOU’RE SAFE HFDM Workshop – HeliTech 2013 Sept 26th 2013 – London
