Flying perks turn a shade of green
Free Flow – Braden Phillips

By David Millward Transport Correspondent
Air passengers could have their conversations and movements monitored as work intensifies to design the terrorist-proof aeroplane.

‘Hijac-proof’ airliner will fly itself out of danger
By Peter Almond
TRIALS have begun on the first “hijack-proof” airliner, which will be able to steer itself away from tall buildings and even land by remote control if terrorists kill the pilot.
Microphones will eavesdrop on passengers’ conversations while computerised CCTV detects suspicious movements so that hijackers can be caught before they go into action.
The plans, being developed by a consortium including BAE Systems, Airbus and the European commission, are designed to counter terrorists who succeed in slipping through airport security.

Child-safety seat gets approval for U.S. planes
Washington
The Federal Aviation Administration said it had approved the first harness- type child-safety device for sale to consumers for use on commercial airline flights.

The device, produced by AmSafe Aviation, involves a belt and shoulder harness that goes around the adult seat back and attaches to the adult passenger lap belt. It provides upper torso restraint for young children, who lack the upper body strength to brace themselves during turbulence or other incidents, said the product maker\'s founder, Louise Stoll.

The device, called a child aviation restraint, is designed for children more than a year old who weigh 22 to 44 pounds, or 10 to 20 kilograms, and sit in their own seat.

Air Safety is a state of mind

Flying is dangerous. That\'s heresy coming from a pilot, but I admit there\'s nothing inherently safe when you\'re high above the earth, going hundreds of miles per hour in a pressurized tube atop tons of explosive fuel. While it doesn\'t violate physics, it does violate common sense. As a senior captain once said to me one morning over the Atlantic, with a wink that was only partly ironic: "We have no business being up here."
