aviation: FAA: Flight system failure attributed to human error

aviation FAA Flight system failure attributed to human error


A disruption in the communications system for US air traffic last week is due to human error.

An employee of a service provider has deleted files that are important for the operation, the US air traffic control authority said yesterday. The breakdown largely paralyzed air traffic in the USA for hours. Pilots had access to the Notice to Air Missions (NOTAM) system, known as the Notice to Air Missions (NOTAM) system, which provides information about hazards, changes to airport facilities and information that may be announced on flights, on Wednesday night until midmorning. The FAA then suspended air traffic for safety reasons.

A preliminary report by the authority now states that contract staff « unintentionally deleted files » when working on the system’s databases. The investigation is ongoing, but there is no evidence of intentional disruption or a cyberattack. Criticism of the FAA had been raised because of the disruption. Air traffic control explains that it has taken steps to make the NOTAM system « more resilient ».
