No. I cannot let you get away with this statement. AF447 showed that Air France training was utter shit.

Rule one in an emergency incident: ONE and only one pilot attempts to fly the plane, while the other goes through the checklists to determine what is wrong and what to do about it. The pilots are trained to communicate clearly so each knows what the other is doing. NONE of this happened in the Air France case.

So either their training was shit or they ignored it. Proper simulator evaluations will weed out pilots who ignore their training. So their training was shit.

Personally, I can't believe that AF management managed to avoid manslaughter through negligence charges.

Sorry for the rant - but as you can tell - it makes me angry.
