Cool

Hi,

What would the families do with it? Who would they take it to? The whole point of investigative agencies that are set up to be independent from regulators and the airlines (of which the BEA is one) is that they have nothing to lose or gain in the outcome. The families could take the data and pay someone to read it, but the conclusions derived from that would be worthless on the basis that the families' lawyers would have paid them to try to exonerate the crew, just as the same allegations could be levelled at DGAC, Airbus or AF if they had a hand in the investigative process itself.
What would the families do with it?
That's not the good question
Again it's just to try to understand the lawyers position on this problem
It's a law problem .. no more
Airbus is a party cited in the trial has come .. as well as family associations
It should therefore be treated equal .. which is not the case .. since Airbus has access to parts (FDR furnished to them by BEA) that will eventually be used at trial .. while the associations of families do not have access to because that the judge in charge of this case want not joint those pieces to the trial record .. (so far)
Unfair ...simple as that ......
the same allegations could be levelled at DGAC, Airbus or AF if they had a hand in the investigative process itself.
Airbus have not a hand in the investigative process .. fair enough .. but be sure they analyze each stances from the listing of FDR and they can use their results in court if necessary
Family associations do not currently have this opportunity
