The man was attempting to enter an Airbus A400M transport aircraft owned by the German air force, the Luftwaffe.

The woman tells him that she needs to check his nationality "because it is a German aircraft".

When he tells her that he is Chinese, she immediately refuses him entry, saying "it's German rules, it's military restrictions".

Febrero es el Mes de la Historia Negra, al menos en USA y Canadá



Febrero es el Mes de la Historia Negra, al menos en USA y Canadá.

El Mes de la Historia Negra es un reconocimiento de las contribuciones, logros, e historia de los Afroamericanos. Lo que empezó como la Semana de la Historia Negra en 1926, fue ampliada al Mes de Afroamericanos 50 años después, en 1976, por el ex presidente Gerald Ford.

Mi especialidad ha sido siempre la divulgación sobre aviación, y por tanto creo que debo contribuir en este mes con 3 pioneros de la aviación que tuvieron que emigrar para poder triunfar. Ambos estadounidenses.

Elisabeth "Bessie" Coleman, la primera aviadora negra. En USA no hubiera podido aprender a volar, por eso emigró a Francia, y a su regreso a USA abrió la primera escuela de vuelo donde no se discriminaba por ser mujer o de otra raza. Podéis leer más sobre ella aquí.



Eugene J. Bullard nació en USA, a finales de siglo XIX. Pero fue en Francia donde fue condecorado como héroe. Corrió en carreras de caballos, fue boxeador y finalmente piloto de caza, aunque jamás voló bajo la bandera de su país. Podéis leer más sobre él aquí.

Josephine Baker, más conocida como artista de bodevill, fue aviadora, voluntaria en las IPSA (enfermeras piloto socorristas del aire) y espía.

Podéis leer más aquí.

Día Internacional Conmemorativo en recuerdo de las Victimas por Accidentes de Aviación 2024

lunes, 19 de febrero de 2024



omunicado elaborado por el Consejo General de la Psicología de España.




COMUNICADO

El 20 de febrero de 2024, hará tres años desde la primera vez que se celebra el Día Internacional Conmemorativo en Recuerdo de las Víctimas por Accidentes de Aviación. Desde la División de la Psicología del Tráfico y de la Seguridad del Consejo General de la Psicología, al que pertenece la Psicología Aeronáutica, queremos apoyar, reconocer y ofrecer nuestra colaboración a las asociaciones de víctimas de accidentes de aviación.




El factor humano aparece como principal variable y, en ocasiones, elemento final de una cadena de errores en el conjunto de las estructuras necesarias para un vuelo seguro. Por ello, constituye una de las prioridades centrales en la investigación para la mejora de la seguridad aérea.




En el año 2022 se produjeron 60 sucesos en territorio español relacionados con investigaciones sujetas al Reglamento (UE) nº 996/2010, de los cuales 34 se clasificaron como accidentes y 26 como incidentes graves, si bien en ninguno de los casos referido a aviación comercial. En los 34 accidentes mencionados se contabilizaron un total de dos víctimas mortales y cuatro heridos graves. En lo que respecta a las aeronaves ULM, se produjeron 33 accidentes, en los que se contabilizaron un total de seis víctimas mortales y cinco heridos graves.




El año 2022, se sitúa comparativamente, respecto a los diez últimos años, un 24% por encima de la media en lo referente a accidentes, y un 49% por encima de la media en lo relativo a incidentes graves. Durante ese periodo se originó un aumento de un 17% en las notificaciones recibidas en la CIAIAC respecto al año anterior. En ese mismo año, el incremento fue de un 45,9% n las operaciones totales, según datos facilitados por Aena para su red de aeropuertos, si bien en la aviación comercial el número de accidentes se redujo drásticamente. Esto ha sido posible gracias, entre otras causas, a la psicología aeronáutica, aunque todavía queda mucho por hacer y en eso sigue la Asociación Española de la Psicología Aeronáutica (AEPA).




La Psicología Aeronáutica abarca el estudio de los procesos psicológicos, emociones y comportamientos de los pilotos en su labor de manejo de una aeronave y de preservar la seguridad en vuelo; así como también estudia la tarea de otros profesionales del sector como son los controladores de tráfico aéreo, personal de asistencia en tierra, etc. La psicología aeronáutica orienta su atención, en especial, hacia el cuidado de la salud mental para promover la gestión de riesgos y la seguridad operacional. Se intenta comprender y predecir qué actitudes y comportamientos contribuyen a la óptima ejecución del sistema y cuáles la degradan. En este cometido la Asociación Española de Psicología Aeronáutica cumple 25 años también este mes de febrero.




Las investigaciones sobre accidentes han demostrado que un percance no puede producirse por el error de una sola persona, sino que es necesario contemplar también los fallos latentes del sistema, tanto en los operadores, en el diseño de las aeronaves e incluso en las normas y políticas vinculadas con la seguridad aeroespacial que tienen que actualizarse y seguir las recomendaciones, si las hubiera, de la investigación de un accidente.




En este ámbito queda enmarcada también la actuación de los profesionales de la Psicología en general, y de la Psicología aeronáutica en particular, a la hora de intervenir en aquellas actuaciones relacionadas con la asistencia a las víctimas de accidentes de aviación civil.




La Psicología está con las vÍctimas desde la prevención, intervención, asistencia y apoyo.
