  • TP 14185 - Through the Overcast
    "Through the Overcast" is a series of 11 aviation safety vignettes, varying in length between 5 and 6 minutes each, which was produced in 1997 by Ted Rankine Productions, for the National Search &Rescue Secretariat and Transport Canada. The aim of the vignettes is to promote safe practices for all sectors of the aviation industry, and to prevent accidents and incidents. By reducing the number of occurrences, the clips help also in preserving our national search and rescue resources. The clips feature Mr. Mike Doiron, who was the Regional Manager for System Safety, Transport Canada Atlantic Region, at the time of filming. Mr. Doiron is widely recognized as a champion of aviation safety in Canada, and he is currently the President and Chief Executive Officer of Moncton Flight College.

  • TP 13838 - Black-holes and Little Grey Cells - Spatial Disorientation During NVFR
    In this safety video concerning Night Visual Flight Rules (NVFR), black-hole illusion, somatogravic illusion and other traps and challenges facing pilots flying VFR at night are discussed and illustrated. The video also contains some recommended procedures and practices that will assist pilots in making their night VFR flights as safe as possible. This CD also includes the following materials: NVFR poster, articles published in the aviation safety newsletters, a brochure, a PowerPoint presentation and more.

  • TP 13652 - The Human Factors In Aircraft Maintenance
    (20 min. 50 sec.) - This video is filmed in three modules which cover various aspects of the human factors that affect an AME's performance and his/her work. The video is formatted to be used in a workshop atmosphere or to be run from start to finish as an introduction to human factors in maintenance. A case study is used where the viewer is challenged to look for the factors that affected the AME's performance. Then questions are posed to the viewer(s) which are designed to promote discussion. Examples of safety nets that can reduce the possibility of making an error are also promoted.

  • TP 13623 - A Simple Mistake: At An Uncontrolled Aerodrome, You Are in Control
    (19 min.) - A Simple Mistake is a dramatic simulation of a fatal accident caused by two simple and, unfortunately, common mistakes: one, a procedural error, and the other, an error of omission. Two small aircraft collide at an uncontrolled aerodrome in Northern Saskatchewan and five lives are lost. The video covers procedures that must be followed in order to ensure an acceptable level of safety in aircraft operations at an uncontrolled aerodrome. The lessons to be found in this video, although initially targeting general aviation, apply equally to all operations.
