Pilot salaries are high in fact directly proportional to the risk that will be accepted. Each flight carried out either domestic or international, potential pilot lost his life, crew, and passengers. This is a risk that must be accepted and borne by the pilot in addition to the lack of quality time with the family, get a variety of disease threats(skin cancer, cataracts, etc.), as well as having working hours timeless. Potential accidents that threaten the safety of private and others will be greater when the pilot could not overcome various problems while airborne. What are these problems?
Running out of fuel while riding motorcycles or cars become commonplace. The risks are most tired of pushing a motorcycle or car to the General Fuel Filling Station (Gas Station) or nearest retail gasoline sellers. If the aircraft ran out of fuel (jet fuel), the risk of fatal which could make the aircraft exploded.
Aviation aircraft fuel is petroleum-based translucent color to yellowish. Before the flight is done, checking the fuel necessary. If the fuel forgot filled, the aircraft could explode before it reached the destination because it ran out of fuel. In addition, the aircraft ran out of fuel also triggered due to bad weather making the plane had to turn the direction or in the air until the weather is safe for landing, leakage due to a broken machine, or due to a delay departure. Running out of fuel on aircraft fuel in fact can make the aircraft exploded. Therefore, pilots should be alert to the presence of fuel. If the destination has been thinned while still a few hours away, the alternative is to make an emergency landing at the nearest airport. Surely there must previously obtain approval from the ATC (Air Traffic Controller), which is also responsible for flight safety.
Air turbulence is a condition in which the shocks in the plane of the impact of air coming from different directions at high speed. Turbulence generally occurs when an aircraft crosses the mountainous area and during a storm (global warming further increases the occurrence of air turbulence). Basically, the turbulence that occurs in both of these conditions is not dangerous because pilots could give instructions to passengers to be seated using a seat belt. However, turbulence becomes a danger if unexpected or often called the Clear Air Turbulence (CAT). This turbulence occurs suddenly with perfect weather conditions without wind and storm. Spelled danger because the pilot could not make an announcement to the passengers to sit back to their places and buckled. Reportedly ultraviolet laser (laser will be fired into the path of the plane) into the latest technology to overcome turbulence.
One machine dies
Commercial aircraft called a multi-engine aircraft because it has two engines to control the plane. One of the problems often experienced pilot was the death of one of the aircraft engines. The cause may result from cumulonimbus clouds that give rise to extremely cold temperatures that freeze aircraft engines. Whether the plane would explode or fall? This is a question often asked by the public. The answer is no, the plane was still on the air at high altitudes even if one engine dead. However, the pilot must concentrate on high for control plane only stay working with the machine and find a safe place for an emergency landing. However, this problem remains informed on the ATC. Another step is to try to revive a dead machine, if there is still hope.
