Making leaps of logic in Germanwings crash.
The news coming from French prosecutor Brice Robin regarding Monday's crash of Germanwings Flight 9295 is shocking, but on what is it based? Surely Mr. Robin knows something he's not sharing with the rest of us, or how could ...

Early thoughts on the Germanwings disaster. Pilot actions provide clues. 
It is too early to say what caused Germanwings Flight 4U 9525 to crash into the mountains in the French Alps. But the actions of the crew in quickly bringing the Airbus A320 registration D-AIPX down from 38 thousand feet sugg...

Crew oxygen serviced the night before MH 370 goes missing. Another intriguing bit of news about pilot incapacitation and airline incompetence in the airline mystery of the age.
The story making headlines on the anniversary of the disappearance of Malaysia Flight 370 is the news that the battery for the locator beacon in the plane’s flight data recorder was not changed on schedule as it should have b...

Monday's crash of Germanwings Flight 9295 is shocking, but on what is it based?

The ads-b data shows eight minutes from 38,000 to 11,400 when data was lost that's an average of just under 3350FPM descent, constant airspeed and very steady heading of 026 - suggestive of the plane being on autopilot the whole time.

Aaron, you are so right. That's where public and media pressure come into play. But I'm not so optimistic there...Thanks for bringing up a good point.

Introduction
Christine NegroniMy life as an aviation writer began with the crash of TWA Flight 800 in 1996. I covered it for CNN and my book about it, Deadly Departure was published in 2000. This piqued my interest in all kinds of flying and the mix of human, mechanical, technological and scientific factors that make it possible. Safety in particular intrigued me so I became an investigator for a New York aviation law firm. 
I am not a pilot or an engineer. My outsider status prompted the FAA to include me on a committee creating new rules for aging airplane wiring. I brought a non-technical perspective to the task. So some years have passed and I’ve “kicked the tin” on a few airplanes as the expression goes. Now write on aviation for The New York Times and I lecture at colleges and conferences. I often appear on those disaster documentaries that run on Discovery or History or the Learning Channel. I no longer claim to be an outsider. 
Aviation has its warts. But no other industry has learned and incorporated so much knowledge about human behavior into its operations. My unique vantage point these past 18 years gives me just the right altitude from which to write Flying Lessons.
