background
Background
  • Well over 200 commercial aircraft have encountered volcanic ash in the past 20 years
  • Eight encounters lost engine power
  • Ash is capable of serious damage
  • Damage depends on ash concentration, exposure, and pilot mitigation
  • Onboard radar cannot detect ash

monitored
Monitored?

Monitoring capabilities are highly variable around the globe

Sequestration has cut monitoring in the US

We need better, automated monitoring, advance planning, and post event analysis for air traffic in volcanic regions.

mitigation complacency
Mitigation Complacency

Mitigation of bad outcomes can lead to complacency – as if the hazard has been eliminated.

The threat remains.

Continued vigilance is necessary and supports mitigation capabilities.
