Irish pilots to ban "foolhardiness"

February 18 2007

Management of the Irish airline Ryanair warned its pilots on the inadmissibility of the commission of dangerous maneuvers when landing. Less than a year, the aviation authorities have been three serious incidents caused by the behavior of the pilots of the company.

The last such incident occurred June 4, 2006, but we know about him was only last week. When approaching the Irish city of Cork, the captain of the liner, which was carrying 134 people, I realized that the train had taken too high to perform a safe landing. The co-pilot advised to go for re-entry clearance.

However, the captain decided to make a sharp turn to lose altitude and land in a few minutes. He laid such a steep turn, that exceeded the critical characteristics for tilt of the wings of Boeing. In this case the captain did not respond to warning of the second pilot of that airliner loses altitude.

As a result, Boeing flew over the suburbs of Cork at a height of 130 meters, which frightened the local residents, 16 of whom filed a complaint with the aeronautical authorities.

The memo, issued by the leadership of Ryanair, the pilots have warned that in case of such incidents, they will be demoted, and if a second violation - dismissal.

In turn, members of the airline argued that the cause of accidents have become very strict deadlines for mezhpoletnoy crew training, which constitute only 25 minutes, wrote The Times.
