The Last Frontier By David Cristwell
eBook (PDF): $4.30
Redeemed in the Last Frontier begins with a plane crash loosely based upon an actual event. Jim McKay, the reputable owner of an Alaskan wilderness lodge is killed under circumstances that defy... More > reason for those who knew him. He was reportedly killed instantly, while the guide riding with him sustained comparatively minor injuries. A week later, it was overheard that the guide “wasn’t supposed to get hurt in this deal, and could cause problems for us down the road.” Small plane crashes in Alaska aren’t that unusual. Nor are hostile business takeovers. Now one may be the result of the other, and it looks curiously similar in circumstances to one that occurred three years before involving the same resort firm, presently many times larger. The authorities quickly rule Jim’s crash as caused by pilot error, the same as they did the one that claimed the life of Paul Dumont three years before. Jim’s brother Dan was already helping Paul’s widow Michele prove his death was no accident.< Less

In this option of A Science Discovery Nostradamus Predicted: Virgin’s Space Craft 2 Option I devote chapter 6 to explain the sound barrier and how this law helped the accident to take place.... More > The accident wasn’t due to pilot error or human negligence but because of the breaking of natural laws. I elaborate in the most detail ever presented of how the four cosmic laws that rule all movement within the boundaries of the Earth’s atmosphere apply. It’s better known as the Sound Barrier. The accident of Space Craft 2 was not the result of pilot error or of equipment mismanagement but it was the result of breaking 4 cosmic laws that science is unaware of. Without knowing these laws more fatal accident is waiting to happen. View this effort as urgent to prevent further loss of life. By not complying with certain specific and yet unknown cosmic laws more preventable but disastrous fatalities will follow in the development of Virgin Air’s Space Ship 2 program.< Less

Delivering the Right Stuff: How the Airlines’ Evolution In Human Factors Delivered Safety and Operational Excellence By Andrew J. Dingee

More > these men took to push the envelope and deliver America to be the first on the moon. These men were chosen because of their mental and physical toughness—they were chosen because they had “the right stuff.” As the space and aviation industries matured, they quickly learned that relying on men and women to have the “right stuff” does not work. Several high profile fatal airline accidents led to the creation of a new term—“Human Factors.” Delivering the Right Stuff examines the airline industry’s investigations into Human Factors and details how key findings from aircraft accidents shaped its acceptance of pilot error. It is an evolution that delivered transferrable frontline tools that forged a foundation for safety and operational excellence.< Less
