Imbeciles. My point proved again.
Firesysok, the only point you're proving is that there are imbeciles outside of our country as well.

Safety Culture ????

This is presumably the reason that Italian ATCOs have started blanket refusal visual approaches... even in day/CAVOK!

The default reaction of the Italian authorities to an incident is to throw everyone left standing into jail and only then start asking questions.

If I ever have an incident close to Italy then an Italian airfield will be at the very bottom of my list of diversion options. This may well increase the hazard posed to my 200 passengers by an already perilous abnormal situation, but with the sure knowledge you will be thrown into jail on landing what do you really expect me to do ?

Such a backward approach to Flight Safety from the judiciary only reinforces my opinion that Italy is a backward nation, run by criminals, more concerned with prosecuting somebody.... anybody... than making aviation safer.
