How about all the calls to scheduling trying to call in sick and having the scheduler them that the flight will cancel. Why doesnt the media get a hold of those and play those? Or play the call of a pilot calling in unfit and being told he has to talk to the CP? (read: intimidation)
How do you know that her cold, contributed to a lot of deaths?????
Everything they say and do etc.. is put under a microscope- especially if there is an .
She had more than 250 hrs. I think she had around 1600.
Anyways, her being sick was a contributing factor. We've all been there whether we want to admit it or not. It still seems to me that she saw the airspeed but went "Ahhhh" instead of saying something I dunno like "AIRSPEED"! It's a mistake that a lot of first time FO's make. They don't say anything when they need to. The CA's don't know everything guys. He/she is a CA because of seniority nothing else. Don't let them kill you! It's a 2 crew ship.
Neither of these two should have been flying a 172 let alone a 121 flight with peoples lives at stake.....they allowed the airspeed to bleed off 57knots in 30 seconds then pulled when the shaker went off then pulled right thru the pusher.....no conversation about hey push the stick or increase power......They want to be treated like a professional then they should act like it! If tired call fatigued, if sick call sick......my family and yours deserve this type of professionalism! NOT THERE TYPE!!!!!
Yea, we had a guy do that mmmmmkkk. He is no longer employed mmmmmk. Supposedly, that isn't why he was "asked to resign." There were "other circumstances" for his resigning. He was a good guy, good pilot but didn't get along with Mgt. He had a target on his back. You have to play by Mgt's rules or they WILL get you. This gal was (in my opinion) working sick because: A.) She most definitely needed the money and B.) Didin't want to "raise any flags" with mgt. I see it all of the time. Business as usual. I hate it that it happened. It sucks.
Safety experts said the accident showed how increased workloads and limited rest periods can impair crew performance. The NTSB recommended yesterday, for the second time in 12 years, that the Federal Aviation Administration update its work rules for pilots.
