Ace Abbott’s Aviation Affair – Allen Morris

Description

{Ace Abbott utilizes the archives of his 36 year aviation career that took him to 44 countries for his aviation-themed interviews. His layover venues varied from tents in Korea, to five-star hotels in Paris, and jail cells in Venezuela. After a 5 ½ year career in the Air Force that allowed him to fly F-4 Phantom fighter jets throughout the Far East, he returned to civilian life to become a Learjet charter pilot. His many flights from South Florida to nearly every island in the Caribbean and most of the Latin American countries was complemented with his chauffeuring of the rich and famous. He flew such celebrities as Jack Nicklaus, John Glenn, Evil Knievel, Jimmy Buffett, Helen Reddy and Olivia Newton-John, as well as Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. He also smuggled Bob Marley from Kingston, Jamaica when Marley’s life was in danger. Ace spent his final 22 years as a Boeing 727 Captain for numerous airlines, most of which went out of business. His 10 airlines in 10 years is likely an unenviable record. The subtitle of his book, The Rogue Aviator is: “in the back alleys of aviation.” Ace’s book provides an insider’s view of a professional pilot’s life on the other side of the tracks.}

Ace Abbott’s Aviation Affair – ASIANA SFO CRASH: UNDERLYING CAUSES

Airplane accidents frequently result from subtle underlying precursors. It is very obvious that Asiana Flight #214 that splattered into SFO on Saturday, July 6 touched down well short of the runway. It is also very obvious that the pilots allowed the airplane to get too low and too slow. This accident will unequivocally be tagged by the NTSB final investigation as pilot error. Even during the preliminary discussion NTSB chairman Deborah Hersman stated that the aircraft was at an airspeed well below the target airspeed for the approach. What set of prevailing circumstances allowed the pilots to fly this aircraft into this dangerous flight regime? Ace Abbott, his program guest, veteran airline captain and training pilot Bill Hurd, along with a student of human behavior and best-selling author Malcolm Gladwell (author of the Outliers), offer the premise that Oriental cultural anomalies were likely a contributing factor. The concept of “saving face” along with a military mentality of deference to authority, and a male-macho culture played a role in the accident. For a unique perspective and some insightful discussion of the nuances relating to cockpit culture and the need for clear and honest communication, this discussion will provide such. …read more
