Prima facie, the AirIndia Express incident is intriguing. The aircraft on the left is the one involved in the incident of contact with obstacle after takeoff. Both aircraft have the similar acceleration to 130kts. They cover roughly the same distance. Their mass may vary but for the same ground speed, the distance seems to be […]

Among the key findings of the work, 51 per cent of pilots surveyed reported that fatigue was not taken seriously by their airline, and 28 per cent of pilots felt that they had insufficient numbers of staff to carry out their work safely.
A total of 7,239 pilots from across European nations participated in the European pilots’ perceptions of safety culture in European Aviation survey, approximately 14 per cent of Europe’s total commercial pilot population, in the largest ever survey of commercial pilots on safety culture.
