An algorithm for countering the threat of an aviation accident is proposed. It is realized in a decision-making support device, which is the main element of the aircraft flight safety control system and appears to be a dynamic expert system. A feature of the proposed device is generation of recommendations to a pilot to get out of an aviation accident upon identifying significant variation in time of the input variables affecting the aircraft flight safety based on information about psychophysical state of the pilot, technical conditions of the control object, external influencing factors, as well as forecast of alterations in the flight conditions. A corresponding block diagram is provided to describe the aircraft flight safety control system. An algorithm to support decision making by the crew is constructed making it possible to generate recommendations for the pilot and signals to the control system to increase the aircraft safety level. The set of decision-making support rules is evaluated for completeness and absence of data inconsistency. Numerical simulation of the algorithm operation accompanied by evaluation of the set of decision-making support rules confirmed its operating capability. Results obtained could be introduced in development of the aircraft flight safety control systems
