You do know that most pilots are White right? They might have a co-pilot that is Asian. We should ground all flights, if we can't walk to it, we don't need to go.

It's pretty common knowledge in the pilot circles. They're terrible at civil aviation.

A deterioration in air safety in Asia has been predicted for some time. They have been recruiting American pilots for several years to fly for various Asian carriers but there's still a pilot shortage which means some pilots that would not make the cut regularly could have been picked up by budget carriers.

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/worl...icle-1.2174736

The strains are also showing in recurring pilot shortages and shortcomings in air traffic control systems and airport infrastructure that countries are scrambling to upgrade, especially in big Southeast Asian nations such as Indonesia.

how can someone be deliberately bad at flying? like isn't being a pilot just one of those things that with the right training, most people can do?
kinda like driving a car?

The captain of a TransAsia Airways ATR mistakenly switched off the plane's only working engine seconds before it crashed in February, killing 43 people, Taiwan's Aviation Safety Council (ASC) said in its latest report on Thursday.

The ASC's report also showed that Captain Liao Jian-zong, who was at the controls, had failed simulator training in May 2014, in part because he had insufficient knowledge of how to deal with an engine flame-out on take-off.

"Wow, pulled back the wrong side throttle," Liao, 41, was heard to say on voice recordings seconds before the crash.
