    Pilot Tells Passengers 'I'm Not Qualified to Land Plane'

    Post  Admin on Thu Dec 18, 2008 11:37 am

    A pilot with more than 30 years experience has been forced to turn his plane around - because he was not qualified to land in fog.


    Pilots need extra training to land in adverse weather conditions.

    Passengers on the 8.45am Flybe flight to Paris were just minutes away from landing at their destination when they were told they would have to go all the way back to Cardiff.

    One passenger from Bristol missed a job interview in France because of the incident.

    Cassandra Grant explained: "Twenty minutes outside Paris, the captain said, 'Unfortunately I'm not qualified to land the plane in Paris.

    "'They are asking for a level two qualification and I only have a level five. We'll have to fly back.'"

    The whole thing beggars belief. If I had not been on the plane, I would not have believed it.

    A spokeswoman for the airline said Flybe backed the pilot's decision "100 per cent".

    He had recently switched from flying a Bombardier Q300 to a Bombardier Q400 and has not completed the "requisite low-visibility training," she said.

    The dense fog covering Charles de Gaulle airport had not been there when the flight took off, she added.

    The plane was already three hours late due to bad weather in Wales.

    The pilot's situation is "quite unusual but probably not unheard of," according to the Civil Aviation Authority.

    for Fish, Wildlife and Parks Office on February 5th. From there it went to the Secretary's
    new york escort Office for final review. It has cleared the
    Office and is ready for transmission to the Federal Register. As of this morning, that has not happened yet.

    Again, I please urge Bike Shop you to oppose Florida S318. The current
    Concern law is working; it just needs more time to accomplish its mandate. This bill would have a large negative
    me personally, and would be particularly damaging to the many breeders of RoC animals in the state of Florida.
    Bike Store Additionally, the
    negative consequences of S318 could potentially extend to greatly worsening the problem it was drafted to solve. The
    Reptiles of Bike Trials Concern law, combined with the current efforts by
    Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and with help from Florida reptile breeders, is more than enough
    the python problem in the Everglades.Bike Trial Seller

    He is clear in what He asks and clear in what He offers. The choice is up to us.Isn't it incredible that NY Escort God leaves the choice up to us? Think about it. There are many things in life we can't choose. We can't, for NY Escorts example, choose the weather. We can't control the economy.We can't choose whether or not we are NY Asian Escorts born with a big nose or blue eyes or a lot hair. We can't even choose how people respond to us. But we NY Asian Escort can choose where we spend eternity.
