And Washington and right now we want to bring in rob -- -- a thirty year aviation industry veteran.
A flight instructor former supervisor and air traffic controller with the Federal Aviation Administration.
He's -- the publisher of jet -- dot com and joins us on the pay -- rob good of you to be here.
My -- a lifelong pilot actually of course talked to him on the phone this morning -- and -- reaction from him and other people has been.
This looks like pilot error and it looks like what would be a rookie mistake what do you say.
Our I think you're probably is a very Smart man this better -- Reagan yeah and you know having been around thank you respect I have only been around.
Thirty years have been closer boarding -- -- -- I appreciate that you are quite different.
Cheerfully you know that this is -- initiate bobcat that I would be very sure I I really predict that this is going to become as big.
A watershed issue for.
I would involvement in in the tree you know -- in the cockpit as the Air France crash -- for.
Just the technology alone because did they -- just doesn't seem to be any reason why.
This aircraft got -- lol and -- old.
So close to the airport had no one did anything about it.
Other work -- pilots in the cockpit.
I guess it was a blessing it's a blessing that these instances are so few and far between -- -- days.
That it was really a bigger shock that it would have been some years ago -- -- we haven't had a major air on an airplane crash in recent years.
What you're right we haven't had a -- a crash on US soil.
In in quite a number of years and -- of course while this was not a US carrier I think that's going to be media.
The focus strictly because beat the training.
Although it should all be the same -- all of the countries are on the world.
I think culture and how people operate inside the cockpit is really gonna become the focus after this tax.
It again we for those of us that's why we just cannot imagine.
What those guys were doing up there.
Yet you know for them and and basically nobody said anything -- -- last -- what do they do it back.
Might as my dad said when that stick shaker when the stick begins to shape right before you go into a stall he said.
There's one thing that that that would that every pilot would do in that instance when you -- you're gonna stolid aircraft of that and it would be to mess yourself.
Com that -- right not to make light of this but what do you think if any will be that impact on air travel in this country.
Well I I think one thing we have to keep in mind is that you know air travel in the US -- It's still very very safe but a course.
You know -- and indicate again this accident was the result of a crew from another country it -- what happened on US soil.
But we're still going to have to keep our eyes open all the time to make sure that we don't relax their standards because.
We you know although we've reached this great pinnacle of safety.
It's going to take work to remain there it's not like Europe while -- we made it to Florida and the drivers know.
It was great to speak with you thank you so much please come back and hopefully we'll have better things in better news talk about Robert -- The bank -- end in thirty years is just fine if you wanna say that I'm like yes.
