Pilots and checklists

There are at least a few things pilots know when it comes to crisis management. Among these, having a checklist is a very important tool for when situations get challenging.

Showing confidence

Pilots have the possibility to gain a great deal of experience from all the checklists and tests they go through throughout their training years and they can, therefore, handle difficult situations in real life while showing self-confidence. 

Just like them, managers should feel and show self-confidence whenever they know how to deal with challenging situations, in order to reassure their team. However, one should always keep in mind that confidence should be used only as a synonym for ability.

Effect Of Noise on Children

  • According to the United Nations, about two-thirds of the world's population will be living in cities by the next 30 years.
  • The World Health Organization recommends classrooms to be not louder than 35 decibels, which is never the case in big cities.
  • Children are facing disruption in their learning, and research points out that those who study in a noisy place are 11 months behind the ones who are studying in quieter places in the same vicinity.

Living In Noise

Most of the city planning is done so that the affluent neighborhoods are in quieter areas.

However, this is also nullified when the ultra-rich who travel frequently stay close to the transit hubs (like Airports), being exposed to high decibels of noise.

March 2020 was supposed to see around 180000 total fights taking off per day from across the world, but due to the lockdown, airports are eerily quiet.

Always In The Air

Due to space constraints, most airplanes, especially the large ones, were kept in the air almost all the time, only to land for getting the passengers (and cargo) in or out, refueling and cleaning.

Planes are supposed to operate efficiently and with greater reliability if they are used frequently, and not when they are parked.

Parking The Planes

  • Dedicated Parking Spots: Some companies use special aircraft storage premises called ‘desert boneyards’. Some companies are using airport hubs, which have ample spaces for parking.
  • Runway Parking: EasyJet has grounded almost all of their fleet and as it already has a dispersed hub structure, is parking the planes across 30 airports. Lufthansa and others have parked their planes in the now unused runways.

Flight Effects on Passengers

While we are on a flight, there are plenty of changes that we can experience:

  • Change in brain chemistry and memory due to the deficiency in oxygen.
  • Cognitive deficits in people who are already ill.
  • Increased tiredness and more yawning during the flight.
  • Deterioration in vision, dryness of skin, change in taste of food due to a reduction in the sensitivity of our taste buds and a decrease in the sense of smell.
  • Change in air-pressure makes passengers generally uncomfortable with the sitting.

    The Anxious Flight Passenger

    Mood swings, along with general anxiety or nervousness are common among flight passengers.

    • Less oxygen can increase the effects of alcohol and the overall anxiety. These factors contribute to emotional changes, which can make people less friendly, more stressed out and lethargic.
    • People are also prone to severe mood swings, like having extreme emotional reactions to movie scenes which would otherwise appear normal to them.
