The tragedy in Petrozavodsk Tu-134 — the tragedy of not only the aircraft, but also for the entire aviation?

June 20, 2011 near Petrozavodsk at 1-kilometer from the runway airport crashed Besovets plane Tu-134. On board were 52 passengers and crew members, this tragedy claimed the lives of 47 people, as of today, five survivors remain in outpatient clinics. This tragedy caused a wide resonance in the media, taking into account the statement of the President on the prescription derived from the operation of all aircraft Tu-134. Most likely, this decision has impacted a lot of reasons, but a more extensive discussion of the masses have the following points: on the same day in Paris hosted the demo flight of the airliner Suhoi Super Jet 100. In this case took place with great success, giving confidence in the emergence of a new Russian civilian aviation aircraft to replace obsolete.

In this respect, hard to argue that the announcement about the plane crashes are often referred to with the phrase "another plane crash." Indeed, not even looking at the fact that air transport is a much more harmless and reliable than, for example, a car, even with the disasters of aircraft, manufactured aircraft really suffer disaster, and it is logical that it creates distrust and even fear of flying to the "carcass." This situation, of course, affect the application and management of the country's aircraft manufacturers, but it all depends on how it does not matter what kind of information is presented in the press. It's no secret that the plane crash, taking into account the state of the aviation industry in Russia, our media have paid increasing attention to the case of all accidents and "forget" about these events later, a small clearance time. Because the majority of our people, even if they do not use air transport, know that in the aviation industry, "trouble", the aircraft makes an emergency landing one after the other, and a new Super Jet 100 shines at the air show in France. This statistic is not under any circumstances be a reproach newcomer SSJ 100 aircraft, but rather as a claim to the short-sightedness of lighting applications and disk imaging, popravde, non-professionals in the field.

As for regulations on decommissioning "carcasses", it decision condemn or support many more, but hardly anyone will think of the need of solutions specifically after the disaster. The technical condition of the aircraft did not cause prirekany from professionals and established the premise disaster is a version of the human factor, ie pilot error. Means if and decommission Tu, with the clear and sensible reasons, you should do it was much earlier, because the standards of experienced aircraft were made in the 1960s, and the last was released already in 1987. Or is unclear why this decision was made in such a short notice. Explanation of this fact is really possible to prove the success SSJ — replacement of the fleet could significantly fill the orders specifically Russian factory industry that will give a great impetus to Russian aviation. That is, is such a solution, "to shoot a cornered horse", so that new horse took his seat in the stalls. In fact cynicism in that the hypothetical decision not, because really no one would argue with the dilapidated state of the fleet, and of another new Russian airliner we have at the moment no, because there is a policy not to incriminate the electoral lobbying business, as it is decision will benefit the entire country.

But back to the cause of the disaster. Crashed near Petrozavodsk Tu-134 was the first aircraft is not too far away that crashed due to pilot error. Against this background, the charges in the catastrophic state aircraft seem to be a little misleading, because the planes flew, and 40, and 50 years ago and that still changed to the current days of the air? No, changed attitudes and legislation to the standards and service of aircraft flights. Even if you think about the causes of high-profile crashes, the memory float such prerequisites as manager error, the bad and watered fuel, moreover, are not pre-flight technical service. So Makarov, it appears that the aircraft is flying a measured, regardless of age, but if you deprive them of the respective operating activities, the accidents can not be avoided. There are few scares fate of SSJ 100, because even the new and last but not the same, modern plane is immune from disaster due to the apparent sloppiness employees of airlines, airports and other staff. As for the errors of pilots, it is difficult not only due to a humane qualities, and prepyadstviya in Russian flight school — when there is no new aircraft to fly, it is logical that there is no new plane to learn to fly them. Do not forget that modern aircraft — is not only a huge amount of sverhtehnologichny devices and accessories, and sophisticated electronics. Even aircraft issued in Russian period, had various modernization and re-equipment, and it is concerned in the main electrical innards. Another thing is that simulators and training aircraft for some reason to re-equip the least, precisely the premise of this was most likely the fact that commercial airlines re-equipped aircraft to penetrate the modern norms of flights, and flying schools are municipal educational institutions, and apparently , do not have adequate funding.

To summarize, it should be noted that tragedy near Petrozavodsk may be one of the pivotal events in the Russian aviation, taking into account the decisions taken. Unfortunately, accidents and loss of life will always be used to cause a public profile, and on this basis to make even the right, but belated decision. It is sad to think that even if tomorrow a Russian aircraft will all be adjusted, then the push to change the situation in the minds of many ordinary people will not success SSJ 100, and tragedy with the death of people. Another thing that we talk about intractable dilemmas in Russian aviation can be long, but as long as Russian aircraft are in service, the airlines carry passengers, design bureaus and aircraft factories create and upgrade new aircraft, and the government support and finance these activities, the hope of reviving the greatness of Russian civilian aviation remains.
