Two Jet pilots grounded over flight error


DELHI

Two Jet Airways pilots have been grounded by Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) after an aircraft they flew last month reportedly gave a stall warning—that the aircraft didn’t have enough thrust to stay airborne. Luckily, the co-pilot of the Boeing 737 immediately pushed the throttle to log the required air speed and thereby averted a crisis.

DGCA chief Arun Mishra said: “We are investigating the stall warning which came on the Delhi-Leh flight on October 22. Initial probe has shown temporary lack of coordination between the co-pilot and the commander. It is a case of pilot error and not machine error. We will take strict action.”
