It seems a french test pilot, Jean Franchi and then a british one Brian Walpole both both barrel rolled a Concorde during testing. From the pilot video below it's clear the french were quite familiar...

I watched the hearings after Indonesian and at the time it was all about blaming the foreign-trained pilots and telling the foreign victims relatives “too bad”., with the unions confirming their...

So now the report is out, the airline can blame Boeing, Boeing can blame the pilots and maintenance, and the FAA who are actually supposed to be the failsafe on design and training requirements can...

We have it on record the the test pilots reported the stick gradient issue and recommended an aerodynamic solution, but were overruled. They were then in the loop on every change and evolution in...

Of relevance: Forkner was a technical pilot, his job was fly sim and write manuals and procedures.
He’s a glorified secretary with a pilot’s license.

Gums,

I’m just an SLF. Worried about the certification system, hoping the FAA and even EASA get a good kick in the rear parts to keep them honest. I can understand the manufacturers trying to cut...

Reuters has the summary of the JATR report on both FAA and Boeing. It’s neither better nor worse than expected. Add pilot training issues and maybe maintenance errors and you get a few hundred so...

There were lots of big red buttons already, FAA delegated engineers. A word in the ear of any of them shoulda stopped the train. If there is a safety issue, and the FAA engineer documents it, he...

The politicians on both sides of the atlantic are smart: rather than pressure Boeing or get in trouble with the US they will say nothing and just wait until the next crash. At that point Boeing will...
