Computer-Related Incidents with Commercial Aircraft

The Bluecoat Project

The Bluecoat Project was initiated by Bill Bulfer an airline pilot who has written user guides for the flight management systems on board certain Boeing aircraft. The purpose of the project is to generate and maintain ongoing discussion between the designers of these computer systems and the pilots who use them, and has expanded to include regulatory authorities and noted researchers. The project maintains public information and reports on its WWW site, as well as private information for members. The public reports are a fine resource for those interested in current computer-related issues in aviation safety.
