How to train the personnel of Aeroflot
The reverse side of any business is always very interesting, especially when it comes to companies with a worldwide reputation. Thus, Aeroflot held an open meeting of the State Duma Committee on Transport and Entrepreneurship, in which they talked about series of measures aimed at reducing the cost of air travel. In addition to this large-scale program for general reference has been made. As usual, we learned a lot. And some aspects of pricing me, to put it mildly, surprised.
I'll try and tell you, for which we pay money when buying a ticket. Since this is all discussed in the meeting room, I'll put these paragraphs through the photos, and I'm afraid to look for another 20 photos of the Presidium of you will be bored
But first - a tour of the training center - namely, simulators for flight attendants. First encountered Literacy excursions: from telling had a microphone and speaker. Audibility is excellent.
Here is a different aircraft equipment, which are processed emergencies.
It is traditionally believed that Russian air travel more expensive than those in Europe. Today, representatives of Aeroflot assured that this is not always the case. When comparing companies of the same weight category (ie. E. With Lufthansa, Aeroflot, EirFrans and British and not with loukost) price of the representatives of the great European troika is four times higher when flying at comparable distances. Four times - it was a concrete example of EirFrans reservation systems. At the same time (this was made a separate stress) ticket price taxis computer system and the person it can not twist. E. There is a base rate, and further, depending on the time of ticket purchase and demand, there is a correction of the final price. E., By buying a ticket at the last day, be prepared to shell out really a round sum. One of the most unpleasant situations on board - it is a fire. In this case, the crew must localize the fire and extinguish it with improvised means. If a fire occurs in the motor or in the luggage compartment, the quenching is carried out remotely. In automatic or manual mode.
In no event it is impossible to plow up the luggage rack. Open up a little, sprinkle from a fire extinguisher and close. Repeat if necessary.
A plane between reduced to land at the nearest airfield. Cabin crew before touching loudly, clearly and choir repeats the mantra that we should do.
The head pressed to her knees, clasp hands underneath. Repeats in Russian and English, of course.
In general, there has never seen harmonious work of flight attendants - seconds count and lives. And then I realized that the words on an airplane about security is not empty - it is in the center of the flight attendants learn to act wisely, decisively and quickly in any emergency situations.
Many factors that affect the price increase, we are registered at the legislative level. For example, the inability to sell tickets on the "non-return rates." Now the airline in Russia suffer great losses because of the many ticket refunds, and these losses are forced to raise prices. Airlines are obliged to feed on board, even if it's a short flight. It is necessary to reduce the number of "non-regulated fees" - most of the prices are they charged airports for services such as "cleaning the toilets" and "pumping drinking water", and their cost is growing without control by the airlines. All these changes in the law are necessary to create a domestic loukost. Past attempts failed because of the lack of facilities in the laws.
Honestly, I did not understand exactly what gives this machine. This emergency landing simulator based on the Il-96.
Vitaly Saveliev reveals deputies, it looks like an emergency landing.
A beautiful stewardesses are ready to demonstrate the emergency evacuation of the airplane.
Just as it is necessary to move down: sitting, clenching his hands into fists and thrust forward. Our people picked up at the bottom of your hands and pull out the ladder, freeing up space next to the passenger.
A traditional, but very fancy for resuscitation dummy. Pulse is!
The simulator for training cabin crew actions during the evacuation of the Superjet.
Girls show action in an emergency depressurization. Wear a mask, first for themselves, then, if necessary, to help the neighbor. At tier you will have 15-18 seconds before you lose consciousness. However, they still control the passengers and give them instructions for the choir.
After landing, evacuation if required, they are also the choir told what to do: take off your shoes, leave everything and move to the exit. Coordination of work, as I have said, amazing.
WAIT! The simulator simulates the sound of an inflatable ramp, and they show the passengers that he is not yet ready.
Let's go! Come on! Come on! Regulations on leaving the aircraft is very hard. When Superjet certification tests, as well as any other aircraft, tested the most unimaginable combinations during the evacuation. Including action in complete darkness and other complicating factors.
A special breed of dogs to search for explosives. Finds control simulator bomb planted among the "passengers".
But the laws - laws and aviation passenger starts at the airport. A Moscow aviation node is already almost exhausted its reserves of bandwidth. For example, there is little to build a third runway Sheremetyevo. By itself, the band will not make weather. But its infrastructure:.. Taxiing, terminals, parking lots, etc. - will increase the airport's capacity. But! Passengers must somehow deliver to terminal. We are up against a kilometer traffic jams on Leningradsky, idiotic isolation and ill-considered schemes of movement. Unfortunately, at the click of the fingers is not correct. It takes time and money.
Of course, this mimimi, but it is also part of the training in emergency landing on water.
Quickly jump into the raft (inflating vest only when you exit the plane!) And evenly distributed around the perimeter.
Rowing with all the forces of the aircraft.
If someone fell into the water, or lingered on board the rescue swimmer throws the ring, it tightens and pulls a on a raft.
Another one of the passengers was killed by a shark, says an accompanying. But the cold and the sun - powerful enemies. To protect the pull awning.
Then moved into the fitness center, which serves the pilots.
It is impossible to develop only the Moscow node. We have a big country, and the airport is very small. We need to develop hubs in the regions benefit, geographically we are standing in the way of Europe and Asia.
320, SuperJet, Tu-154 (suddenly!), A320. In another room there are still the A320, A330, and IL-96. Trainers work 22 hours a day, stopping only for prevention. Training, retraining and training flights are going around the clock.
In a cruel shortage of commanders Airlines aircraft in an ample amount of co-pilots. But to become a FAC, the co-pilot must fly a roughly three years. And what he will do if there is a very serious lack of these same commanders and instructors?
Exit suggests is simple: it is necessary to allow to invite qualified pilots from abroad. Many European airlines are now, on the contrary, an excess of the FAC. And this is not any there emigrants "from Asia" - this simply does not entrust the helm, and professional pilots. In many airlines fly Russian pilots. They can be invited from abroad, and we - no?
The first procedural simulator MS-21. The aircraft will fly only two years later, and crews need to prepare now.
The simulator Tu-154. He was already out of service, but not removed, as it will be transferred to the Museum of Lenfilm. On it were filmed scenes of the famous movie "The Crew".
As a result, "Aefrolot" and Duma committees prepared and voiced the complex changes in the laws, which, if accepted, would reduce the cost by 30% or more tickets. Wait and see.
