Finding MH 370 wreckage on the shore won't help search for plane but will address the "not there" theories.

ICAO requires ALL pilots and controllers involved in international flights to have a level 4 "Operational" proficiency. One problem, as I see it, is that American (and Mother-tongue English speakers in general) pilots or controllers, do not understand that they may need to negotiate understanding with the other (level 4) party. When plain English is required, these level 6 "Expert" speakers need to use their innate linguistic talents to make themselves understood.

Egg Heads Unlikely Malaysia 370 Heroes in the Bamboozle Era
In the past I’ve referred to them as the kids who couldn’t
get a date for the prom. Now, I bet the engineers at the British satellite communication
company inmarsat will be the coolest kids of summer if the portion of
an airplane found in Reunion Island in ...

Could Possible MH-370 Debris Find Have Come Sooner?
It’s an exciting possibility that a piece of Malaysia Flight
370 may have washed up on the beach in Reunion Island, 3700 miles across the
Indian Ocean from Perth. What looks to be a piece of wing is nine feet long and
3 feet wide.  A statement from the Fren...

Can This Airliner be Saved?
Photo by Brian Walker Armchair airline pilots may be asking why the crew of Delta Air Lines Flight 159 from Detroit to Seoul opted to fly through a hail storm on June 16th, rather than insist on an altitude deviation from air traffic control in China. The d...

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.
