Two Jet pilots grounded over flight error


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.”
