After the emergency at Sheremetyevo, they wanted to test the training of Aeroflot pilots

On May 5, 2019, at the Sheremetyevo Airport (Moscow), when approaching an emergency landing, the Aeroflot airline Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ 100) crashed. As a result of the disaster, 41 people were killed (40 passengers and 1 crew member) out of 78 on board (73 passengers and 5 crew members).

And so, it became known that the Interstate Aviation Committee (IAC) may recommend the Federal Air Transport Agency to conduct an audit of the training of Aeroflot pilots. After all, the lack of pilot qualifications could lead to the tragedy.

In addition, IAC experts are also going to study the characteristics of the manual control mode of SSJ-100 airliners. And according to sources, the IAC is also interested in issues related to lightning entering the plane.

According to available information, the pilots landed the plane without consuming fuel, and even with speeding, which led to the liner jumping onto the runway. And during the fire, not yet landing the plane on the ground, they opened the window in the cockpit, creating traction for smoke and fire. Moreover, they did not turn off the engines and they worked until the very end, creating a semblance of a fiery smoke tornado in the passenger compartment. It should be noted that, unfortunately, many instructions, rules, charters and other similar documents are written in human blood.

It must be added that so far there are no official results of the disaster investigation. But the head of the Ministry of Transport of Russia, Yevgeny Dietrich, assured reporters on May 15, 2019 that the preliminary results of the investigation would be published in the next two to three months.

Traditionally, the IAC takes up to a year to complete the investigation. I suggest that within two to three months they will publish a preliminary report. For them, this is a standard procedure, the report is published in open mode.

- specified Dietrich.

Recently we Reported, as the head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia Denis Manturov said that they would not reduce the production of SSJ 100 airliners.

    In general, it is necessary to return the requirements and rules of the Soviet era - this is where the professionals were trained. And with the widespread transition to amerovskoy and geyropskoy equipment and requirements began to comply with them. And there are such requirements - the pilot has no right to once again intervene in the control of the aircraft. There should BASICALLY work computerized equipment, and the pilot - OBSERVES that it (this equipment) works as expected. And in the event of a failure - in due time I MUST REPORT the malfunction ... com, really ... hz. ... And with manual control THEM (especially so behind the puddle) is a rather sad situation. There, during training, a STRICTLY defined number of raids (something there is so small). In the USSR, the Chicago Convention was respected and 1500 hours of flight, at least it was respected. And now???
