The plane accident of Malaysia brings changes to flight safety

As you know the plane of Malaysia Airlines, a Boeing 777-200ER, in a MA370 flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing is still missing (as they have not found debris or any other evidence which refers to possible crash), however the experts have studied carefully the events, they have made their proposals in order to prevent similar accidents in future. Inmarsat, a satellite communication provider service, proposed the adoption of a free world flight tracking service through their networks and it will be available for each plane which will fly for a long time.


The proposal was made during a conference organised by ICAO, the International Civil Aviation Organization, in Montreal, Canada. About 11,000 aircrafts are currently equipped with the systems of Inmarsat (in long flights) while it undertakes to give it without extra cost. In this way, facts relating to the aircraft will be known such as the precise coordinates, the height and the speed refreshed every 15 minutes. In addition, for any abrupt change, if something goes wrong, a "black box at the cloud" of Inmarsat will be activated to provide all data to airlines, manufacturers, rescue teams, etc.


As the CEO of Inmarsat, Rupert Pearce said, given that the system proposed by his company is global, it could be implemented on the spot since it is not required to install additional equipment.
