Abstract

The COVID-19 outbreak has shown that pandemics, like other rarely occurring natural catastrophes, have happened in the past and will happen in the future. Although humans cannot prevent dangerous viruses from emerging, they should be prepared to dampen their consequences for the economy and all of society. The main objective of this paper is to address the COVID-19 pandemic as a novel mechanism of the motion of an aircraft in MIRCE Mechanics, as only then the most effective technological, social and economic actions can be taken by humans to deal with it. Examples of devastating impacts on aviation world-wide are given in the paper, based on available statistics provided by governmental and global commercial aviation associations. Also, examples of professional and technological solutions taken to cushion the impact of COVID-19 on safety in aviation are presented. To assist airlines in the selection process of aircraft types that should be returned to the post pandemic service MIRCE Function ability and Profitability Equations are presented in the paper. However, they are applicable only when the mechanisms of the motion of an industrial system through MIRCE Space are known. As COVID-19 pandemic was not known until the beginning of 2020 business plans of airlines world-wide are for several orders of magnitude off the target, measured in flying hours delivered, revenue generated, an unprecedented number of aircraft grounded and prematurely retirement of B747 and A380 aircraft type from active service. Thus, this paper is bringing together the physiological side of COVID-19 and its physical impact on the operational side of airlines in order to assist them to predict the expected positive and negative work by each aircraft type grounded. This analysis will guide them to decide what type of fleet they should have in the post pandemic times and thus secure the business existence.
