Everything in the entire place is in this space

This website is made for the RECKless

“I’m not reckless…”

We don’t mean’t reckless, we mean RECKless (because who doesn’t love a good acronym in aviation?). This site has been created for pilots, individuals, operators who need a little support in finding:

  • Resources?
  • Experience
  • Connections
  • Knowledge

We don’t want anyone to be RECKless, which is why we made this site.

Terrible sales pitch over

So is the terrible acronym.

But we did create this to help, because we think HUMANS are right in the middle of the SPACE between SAFETY and DANGER!

Humans and our ‘factors‘ are integrating, implementing and impacting all of it. So we really should be talking about all things human as the centre of our safety discussions, properly, in the context of our operations and not as some side note.

“Oh yeah, human factors, great stuff, let’s look at that tomorrow, in a totally separate classroom to all this…”

What do we really mean?

We mean we should be putting people at the centre of it all. Less ‘human factors’ and more ‘human’ full stop.

Proper conversations in plain English. Procedures and regulations written practically and simply so they can be used. More understanding of the human role within operation. A focus on the HUMANS that make aviation work.

The Aviation Place

So this SPACE is about providing RESOURCES to help you and your operation head away from danger and towards safety. It is for sharing EXPERIENCES, building CONNECTIONS to enable all operators big and small to improve safety in the industry, and sharing and developing KNOWLEDGE on the ways and processes that will help do all of this.

We want to help you find the direction that is for you and your operation by talking about the things that need talking about, in a way that is clear and simple, understandable and useable, practicable and persony (human).

Because we don’t want anyone to be RECKless.

Everything. From everywhere.

  • Multiple reports raise risk levels Syria & Iraq There have been at least 70 drone and rocket attacks in Iraq since October 2023. The increase is in part due to rising tensions following the Israel/Hamas conflict. Crisis24 reports that ‘US interests‘ in Iraq and being targeted, with a focus on the Al-Asad Airbase in Anbar…

  • Are runway intersections a threat waiting to happen? What’s are we talking about? A lot of major airports have intersecting runways. They are a design that allows airports to cater for varying wind conditions, and optimise operational efficiency without taking up so much room. Think KORD/Chicago and its 8 runways, 3 of which intersect, or…

  • An important conversation needs to be had The Incident On October 16 2023 a Lufthansa A350 from EDDM/Munich to KSFO/San Francisco diverted to KOAK/Oakland after ATC were unable to accommodate them with a ‘non-visual’ approach. There has been a lot of debate and discussion within the industry already on who was more wrong and while…

  • What is an MOA, and what do we need to know about them? What is an MOA? I’m not going to lie, this post is not interesting to anyone except folk who fly in bits of Australia, and even then probably not really. Which is why after realising how dull MOAs (a new kind of…

  • The USA’s en-route domestic CPDLC is open for all. For all with right stuff at least That’s right! It is now available to everyone. There was a NOTAM restricting GA/BA folk, but it’s gone so… logon one and all. But check first that you have equipment needed. This is available on the FAA site and…
