Mr. Pareto Head BY MIKE CROSSEN 14 QP * www.qualityprogress.com Aviation safety (continued from p. 12) a security dimension to this tragedy, that two passengers could board an aircraft with fake passports rings alarm bells."8 Many other changes to flight operations and aviation activities are being debated: increasing capacity for data and voice recorders; using transponders that detach from a downed aircraft on impact and float; mandating software upgrades for airplanes' satellite systems; and finding ways to encourage more international cooperation and data sharing. "No matter how safe or secure we make the air transport network, these types of events remind our entire sector that no effort is ever enough, no solution is ever a reason to stop seeking further improvement," said Olumuyiwa Benard Aliu, council president of the International Civil Aviation Organization.9 -Compiled from wire reports REFERENCES 1.
