Canada: Aviation Inspectors Warn of Impending Disaster
Aviation inspectors warn of impending disaster
OTTAWA – A new Abacus Data study among Transport Canada’s frontline aviation inspectors reveals broad concern about recent cuts to aviation safety oversight and an ominous sense that a major aviation accident in Canada is likely in the near future.
The survey finds most Transport Canada’s pilot inspectors haven’t flown an actual aircraft in years and a majority report they have not been trained for the work they are asked to do.
The state of aviation safety in Canada today has left eight-in-ten (81%) inspectors surveyed predicting a major aviation accident in the near future, according to the survey.
