Low energy management
This is a reconstruction of a near stall on take-off caused by the distraction of a lightning strike which terrified the cabin crew.
The confusion and lack of monitoring of flight path and Flight Mode Annunciators in the cockpit results in a situation where no-one is flying the aircraft and it pitches up to an un-commanded 30 degrees.
When a distraction has occurred it is always important to check the flight path and FMAs to get back into the loop again and continue the monitoring task by mentally flying the aircraft.
Vertical flight path management
These three scenarios illustrate level bust examples caused by incorrect mode selections resulting from lack of monitoring of pilot actions.
These were due to in part to poor communication and workload management.
In order to avoid level busts it is essential that all flight path changes are monitored. Check the pilot actions, resultant system modes on FMAs and aircraft responses on flight instruments.
