HF Panel Examines AF447 Crash

September 9, 2011

French investigation agency Bureau d’Enquetes et d’Analyses has put together a seven-member Human Factors working group which will examine in detail the events in the cockpit of the ill-fated Air France flight AF447.

The Airbus A330 crashed in June 2009 after a high-altitude stall from which the pilots failed to recover, a situation which has split opinions over the extent to which the crew was responsible for the accident.

BEA said the working group will, “in particular”, look at the pilots’ response to the stall warning, as well as aspects relating to human-machine interfaces and cockpit ergonomics.
