“Flight 5481 UNRAVELED" ~ Aviation Safety Course for professional pilots, maintenance, management and employees.
Presented by Dave Allison and TC FREEMAN
January 8th, 2003, Dave Allison’s day started like the one before. He was working as an aircraft mechanic on the ramp of a busy hangar at the Charlotte-Douglas Airport. Typical noises of aircraft arriving and departing could be heard as his crew worked on the tail of a heavy jet. At 08:47 a.m. the sound of a turbo-prop engine rising to fever pitch catches Dave's attention. Quickly looking around, he witnesses the image of a Beech 1900 commuter aircraft literally hanging by the props like an aerobatic aircraft on the verge of a tail-slide maneuver. As the aircraft falls off to the right it is apparent the doomed aircraft is heading towards the maintenance hangar. The explosion is horrific, small bits of aircraft insulation fall from the sky ignited. It is learned a short time later that all 19 passengers and 2 crewmembers died in the crash. Dave's life and perspective about aviation safety would change forever.
For the first time he talking about the accident with a focus on Human Factors, professionalism and SOP's affecting the flight crew, maintenance, management and governmental agencies. Dave Allison, along with TC FREEMAN, Aviation Safety Specialist, AviationSafetyWeb.com, present “Flight 5481 UNRAVELED,” a message that needs to be heard by all pilots, mechanics and management personnel.
