Aircraft Fire Hazards, Protection & Investigation Course

While commercial air transport is very safe, the advent of new technologies poses new fire safety challenges, thus the motivation for this course. Expect a comprehensive and unique treatment of practical fire and explosion hazards onboard aircraft. Using selected case studies from the outline below, we will discuss in depth candidate ignition sources, fire growth, systems survivability, design issues, protection methods and forensic implications, with the fundamentals introduced as needed. This approach is tailored to professionals who want to broaden and deepen their knowledge. We present a unified treatment of diverse situations pertinent to accidents, combat and terrorist attacks for both commercial and military aircraft. The course is illustrated by videotapes and photographs of real events and well controlled and instrumented bench- and full-scale tests by FAA, NTSB, DOD, NASA and BlazeTech.

Attendees will benefit from:

  • Discussion of numerous real accident case studies
  • Presentation of related fundamentals
  • Dynamic class exchange of current issues
  • Discussion of testing and accident reconstruction
  • Available simplified analyses for quick answers
  • When to use such analyses vs. computer models?
  • What to ask from Subject Matter Experts?
  • What information forensic tools can provide?
  • How to assess hazards from new technologies?

Attendees receive class notes containing a wealth of key data and a certificate of completion. Course is equivalent to three Continuing Education Credit Units.
