Assessing the Impact of Pre-Flight Inspection in Preventing Hazards: A Case Study of 360 - Checks
Keywords:Pre-flight Inspection, 360-Checks, Pilot Training, Hazards, Safety.
A major priority for the aviation industry is how to prevent accidents and incidents. One of the ways in ensuring that during the duration of the flight, starting from the start of the engine until the engine is shut down, is the pre-flight inspection, or what is also called 360-checks. A 360-check is one of the risk mitigation practices by aviation organizations conducting flight operations. This study aims to determine the impact of pre-flight inspection in preventing hazardous situations from happening during flight. This research study was conducted on the pilots of Omni Aviation Corporation. The researcher analyzed the frequency of hazards that occur during the flight, the importance of inspecting the aircraft's structure for the pilots, as well as the importance of inspecting the quality and quantity of the fuel and oil inside the aircraft. As pre-flight inspection is an important aspect of ensuring safety, it is significantly appropriate to be applied as this study's variable, especially for pilots who are still training and gaining experience.
