    Default AM form 1180 - cause factors codes decoding

    Hi all,

    I was reacting in already archived thread and it does not work (what I have not noted earlier) so I am creating this new thread.

    The original thread was "AM form 1180 Hendon Air Historical Cards"

    http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/sho...storical-Cards

    Ross has been able to decode most of the codes on the AM Form 1180 - just to refresh memory what I am talking about:

    Looking at the groups first, a full code report comprises of 8 groups

    xxxxx Axxxx Pxxxx Exxxx Uxxxx Axxxx Xxxxx Wxxxxx

    1st Group relates to Stage of flight and first letter can be from L, T, O, F, I, M, FS
    2nd Group starting with A is either Type of investigation or denotes a class of accident
    3rd Group starting with P is pilot
    4th Group starting with E is engine
    5th Group starting with U is undercarriage
    6th Group starting with A is Airframe
    7th Group starting with X is external influences
    8th Group starting with W is weather


    Thanks to comprehensive answers from Ross I was able to decide 7 of 8 groups - the only mystery is the group for Pilot - I have "PSS" on my card - anyone has an idea what it means?

    TIA

    Hi all, just a little update - I have received reply from the AHB (RAF) regarding this matter that they have no information about this codes.
