Coroner’s Final Report

November 16, 2008

coroners-final-report may be downloaded here. It is critical of CAA and of WAW. Since the report has been released little has happened and releases by CAA suggest they believe all is and was under control. The Coroner’s tough message has certainly fallen on deaf ears in certain quarters. There has however been a number of articles in Wings and while a number there are trying to reinforce the Coroner’s message it is clear many in the field have little understanding of the nature of aviation fatigue and see the Coroner as another armchair critic. That is very sad for the pilots who have been killed: apparently the old ‘pilot error answers all’ is still the position of many.
