Air France and Airbus being sued

Air France and Airbus being sued

Representatives of both companies remained silent before a judge in Paris on June 1, 2009, after officials said AF447 disappeared in an equatorial storm overnight en route from Rio de Janeiro to Paris, killing all 228 people on board.

Families embodying some of the 33 nationalities onboard, mostly French, Brazilians, and Germans, loaded into the Paris Criminal Court behind several legal setbacks.

After two years of examining the remote-controlled black box of the A330 submarine, researchers found that the pilots did not respond to warnings to slow down and free fall and responded inappropriately to the problem of freezing airspeed sensors.

However, the French agency BEA also reported that Air France and Airbus discussed the reliability of the rover. He has created dozens of safety guidelines, from cabin design to training, search and rescue.

Experts express the relative roles of pilot or sensor error will be critical to the trial, revealing a battle that has divided France’s aeronautical elite.

Pilot Training

AF447 flared a rethink regarding training and technology and is seen as one of a handful of casualties that transformed aviation, including industry-wide progress in managing lost control.

Centre stage is why the three crew, with higher than 20,000 hours of flying experience between them, fell to understand that their modern jet had lost lift or “stalled.”

That required pushing the nose down instead of pulling it up as they did for much of the deadly four-minute dive toward the Atlantic in a radar-dead zone.
