Monitor (ECAM) displays, or other simi-
lar displays including primary flight dis-
play, primary navigation display or other
integrated displays. There is sure to be
future discussion about what constitutes
“flickering” and how long a flicker must
last before it constitutes a complete loss
of information.
Two of the new reportable incidents in-
volve averting collisions. It is now a re-
portable incident if Airborne Collision and
Avoidance Systems (ACAS) resolution
advisory is issued that requires an aircraft
on an IFR flight plan to comply in order to
avert a substantial risk of collision, or is
issued to an aircraft operating in Class A
airspace. It also is now reportable if an
air carrier aircraft lands or departs on a
taxiway, incorrect runway or other area
not designed as a runway, or experiences
a runway incursion that requires another
aircraft or vehicle to take immediate cor-
rective action to avoid a collision. Finally,
a report is now required for the release of
all or a portion of a propeller blade not
caused by ground contact.
Except among aviation-related publica-
tions and online chat rooms, there has not
been a lot of fanfare surrounding the new
reporting requirements. The new rules re-
garding reportable incidents, however,
present a good opportunity to review what
qualifies as an incident or accident, and
when a report is required.
