ESL 161: Don't Top Off the Tanks


Download


Alabama Airlines has notified its pilots to stop topping off their fuel tanks. Alarmed, pilot Buck Rogers sent a copy of the memo to Time Magazine, which investigated the matter. It discovered that AA was reacting to a 50-percent increase in fuel prices in the last year alone. The memo warned pilots to put only the amount of fuel into the plane that was necessary to reach the destination.

The memo reminded pilots that their primary responsibility was to ensure that AA's profits increased every quarter. Topping off the tanks resulted in extra fueling time and extra weight. The extra time and weight were reducing company profits. The memo concluded with these instructions: turn off the engines when stuck in long lines on the runways; if there is a strong tailwind, turn off all the engines and glide; and, wherever it is available, use "economy" jet fuel.

Pilots immediately complained, saying that such a policy put their lives and the public's lives at great risk. Yielding to their complaints, AA allowed pilots to put in an extra ten gallons of fuel.

Even with the extra ten gallons, Rogers had two near disasters. The first time, his plane ran out of fuel just as the wheels touched the runway. His plane had to be towed to the terminal. Rogers received a congratulatory phone call from AA's president! The second time, Rogers had to land his plane on a freeway, still under construction, 10 miles short of the Atlanta runway. This time the president told him he was making AA look bad. He told Rogers to save fuel AND land at the airport.

"People have no idea how little AA cares about their safety," Rogers said. "Saving fuel is more important to management than saving lives."

Không đổ đầy bình xăng

Hãng hàng không Alabama đã thông báo phi công của họ ngưng đổ đầy bình xăng. Báo động, phi công Buck Rogers đã gửi một bảng ghi nhớ đến tờ Thời báo, nơi điều tra sự việc. Họ phát hiện ra AA đã phản ứng lại việc tăng giá xăng dầu lên 50-phần trăm vào năm ngoái. Bản thông cáo cảnh báo những phi công chỉ đổ xăng cần thiết đủ để máy bay đến điểm đến.

Thông cáo nhắc những phi công trách nhiệm đầu tiên của họ là đảm bảo lợi nhuận của AA tăng hàng quý. Đổ đầy xăng làm tăng thời gian đổ xăng và thêm khối lượng dư. Thêm thời gian và khối lượng này sẽ làm giảm lợi nhuận của công ty. Thông cáo kết luận với các chỉ thị: tắt máy khi kẹt trong hàng dài chờ bay; nếu có gió lớn, tắt hết máy và chỉ trượt; và khi có thể, dùng xăng dầu máy bay phản lực "kinh tế".

Những viên phi công lập tức than phiền, nói rằng qui định như vậy đặt cuộc sống của họ và dân chúng trong rủi ro lớn.
Nhượng bộ trước những than phiền, AA cho phép những phi công đổ dư mười gallon xăng.

Ngay cả với mười gallon xăng dư, Rogers đã gần có hai thảm hoạ. Lần thứ nhất, máy bay của anh hết xăng chỉ vừa khi chạm bánh đường băng. Máy bay của anh phải được kéo đến điểm đỗ. Rogers nhận được cú điện thoại khen ngợi từ chủ tịch AA! Lần thứ hai, Rogers phải đáp máy bay trên đường cao tốc, đang xây dựng, cách 10 dặm đường băng Atlanta. Lần này thì chủ tịch nói anh đã làm xấu AA. Ông nói Rogers tiết kiệm xăng VÀ đáp xuống sân bay.

"Người ta không biết AA quan tâm tí xíu nào về an toàn," Rogers nói. "Tiết kiệm xăng quan trọng hơn với cấp quản lý so với bảo vệ sinh mạng".

Alabama Airlines (AA)thông báo cho các phi công của hãng không được đổ đầy các thùng xăng máy bay. Hoảng sợ, phi công Buck Rogers gởi bản sao tờ thông báo nội bộ cho tạp chí Times, là nơi điều tra vấn đề. Họ phát hiện ra AA đã đơn thương độc mã đối phó với sự gia tăng 50% giá nhiên liệu trong năm vừa qua. Bản thông báo nội bộ yêu cầu các phi công chỉ đổ số lượng xăng cần thiết cho máy bay tới được đích đến.

Bản thông báo nội bộ nhắc nhở các phi công rằng trách nhiệm hàng đầu của họ là phải đảm bảo được lợi nhuận của AA tăng thêm trong mỗi quý. Việc đổ đầy thùng xăng dẫn đến việc tốn thêm thời gian tiếp nhiên liệu và tăng thêm trọng lượng. Thêm thời gian và trọng lượng đang làm lợi nhuận của công ty sụt giảm. Bản thông báo kết thúc với các chỉ dẫn sau: Tắt các động cơ khi máy bay kẹt thành hàng dài trên đường băng. Nếu có gió thuận thổi mạnh , tắt tất cả các động cơ và đáp xuống; và bất cứ nơi nào có thể, hãy dùng nhiên liệu máy bay phản lực "tiết kiệm".

Các phi công lập tức khiếu nại, nói rằng chính sách đó đã đặt cuộc sống của họ và cuộc sống của công chúng vào một nguy cơ rất lớn. Nhượng bộ trước đơn khiếu kiện, AA cho phép các phi công được đổ thêm 10 ga-lông nhiên liệu.

Thậm chí với 10 ga-lông bổ sung, Rogers đã cận kề hai thảm hoạ. Lần thứ nhất, máy bay của anh cạn kiệt nhiên liệu ngay khi những chiếc bánh xe chạm vào đường băng. Máy bay của anh được kéo vào nhà ga đón khách. Rogers nhận được một cú điện thoại chúc mừng từ Chủ tịch của AA. Lần thứ hai, Rogers buộc phải đáp máy bay xuống xa lộ, vẫn đang trong thời gian xây dựng, cách đường băng Atlanta có 10 dặm. Lần này, viên Chủ tịch bảo anh đã làm cho AA vào thế bất lợi. Ông ta bảo Rogers tiết kiệm nhiên liệu VÀ hạ cánh tại sân bay.

"Mọi người không biết vì sao AA lại ít quan tâm về vấn đề an toàn của họ đến như thế," Rogers nói. "Tiết kiệm nhiên liệu lại quan trọng hơn cho việc quản lý so với việc cứu mạng sống của con người."

@chị HoangThiQuynhNhu & lanhuongbm

Có 3 loại gió tác động lên chuyển động của một vật.

1. Tailwind: Gió thuận. Gió thổi từ phía sau tới, cùng chiều chuyển động của vật thể, cụ thể là máy bay.

2. Headwind: Gió ngược. Gió thổi theo chiều ngược lại của chuyển động một vật.

3. Crosswind: Gió thổi ngang hướng chuyển động của một vật.

Khi cất và hạ cánh, máy bay bay trong headwind sẽ có thuận lợi hơn. Nó sẽ giúp tạo lực nâng lớn khi cất cánh và lực cản cần thiết khi hạ cánh. Hạ cánh khi có crosswind lớn là nguy hiểm nhất. Chiếc máy bay nặng vài trăm tấn sẽ bị gió làm cho chao đảo, tưng lên tưng xuống khi chạm đường băng và thậm chí đáp chệch đường băng dẫn tới thảm họa nữa là khác.

Nội dung bài học có cái không đúng, nhưng không sao, bài học cũng chỉ là bài học. Chúng ta không cần quan tâm tới nội dung sai đó.

ESL đăng ký: Bạn không cần phải đăng ký gì cả. Chỉ việc nhẩy vào bài ESL 1 học và làm bài tập. Tiếp tục những bài kế tiếp càng nhanh càng tốt. Mình sẽ 888 và thỉnh thoảng cùng nhau nhắc nhở cho vui hén. Chứ thật ra việc học là việc của tự bản thân mình. Mình giỏi thì mình được nhờ hén.
