EASA Adds Pilot Training Requirements for Loss of Control Situations

The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has announced new training requirements to better prepare pilots employed by European airlines to respond to loss of control situations including stalls and inclement weather.  This training is intended to prevent some of the mistakes believed to have contributed to the 2009 crash of Air France Flight 447. States were recommended to adopt these training requirements last year by ICAO. European carriers will have until May 2016 to become compliant, and the International Air Transport Association (IATA) is producing implementation guidelines to assist the carriers.
