Hat Yai: Co-pilot of budget airline passes out during flight and later dies

Recommended Posts

Can't believe all these silly comments over a persons death, hey it can happen to any one, any where regardless of what airline they fly or what aircraft they operate.

RIP.

Lion Air failed their IATA safety tests and are not members, they are also on a list of airlines not allowed to fly within EU airspace owing to their safety record. There have also been a number of incidences in which pilots have been found to be under the influence of drugs. - I would never fly them, or any airline not IATA certified.

IATA airlines do have NOTHING to do about safety. Most Budget and LCC carriers are NOT members of IATA and this has once again NOTHING to do with safety. Ryanair, easyjet, air Asia etc etc etc etc are NOT members of IATA too.

As I said in my previous post LION air is in the progress of being removed from the EU blacklist; which is kind of a strange list anyway.

Lion air is NOT an excellent first class airline BUT Lion air is a large airline that faces a difficult operating environment (indonesia) and it fastly improving to be at one point in the future an Excellent first class airline.

The Lion Group operates 153 aircraft today (about twice the size of TG) and has more than 200 planes on order. It does need some effective management to keep all this running smooth. so give them some credit. my condolences to family and friends.

And to all those that want to avoid LION AIR for their own interpretation of safety; I wish them safe flying on those airlines they consider safe.

Two people in the cockpit? These days they are talking about zero people in the cockpit. About as dumb as driverless cars.

Wow. So what happens when one of them has a heart attack?

What a very strange comments that people will NOT fly Lion Air because a pilot dies on the flight deck. What does this have to do with Lion Air.

Having said this I am aware off certain short comings in Lion Air but things are improving fast. They are a huge airline now Malindo/Batik/wings/Lion Thai/Lion. They have their own flight school, training center and simulators. Right now Thai Lion is a much safer airline to fly on than Nok Air. Unfortunately I can not get into details here but lets put it nicely; Nok Air is not taking safety serious.

P2F; yes I am aware of this; Ryanair comes to mind and many other airlines in the world... So if a pilot is willing to pay to fly why Lion Air can take those guys too,

LOL sounds like you have vested interest in Lion AIr....

9 serious incidents in only the past 13 years! with 25 recorded fatalities.....

work that one out Captain.. cheesy.gif

A much better record that Malaysia Airlines !

Why is it dumb? This story proves that human pilots can fail. Countless drone missions have been flown succussfully, with no risk to any pilot personnel at all. And for all the people who will "Never fly Lion, was this not a successful aversion of a potential disaster? The second pilot did as trained and landed the aircraft safely. I can show you evidence of failures by almost any airline or car manufacturer even. Does that mean you will walk everywhere now in your bubble of safety? More people die on bicyles every year than in airplanes so no bike either I guess huh? What a bunch of ridiculous cowards.

Oh well guess it was his time, Sad but completly natural, and as for the Bali incedent

no one can blame the run way the plane missed it and it went strait in the drink!

Just like the OZ incident at SFO. you can do training and training and training but human error remains a factor on ALL airlines. Didn't LH land on a runway that was still in progress of being build in Poland recently??

Even in America they land on the wrong runway or at the wrong airport occasionally.

Would like to see a prize for the first passenger to use Smartphone & GPS, & advise pilot e.g. 'Hey, St Louis is 55 miles north of here!!!'

Young man can collapse also, so don't think too much about pilot's age.

RIP flying Dutch man, continue your flights above the clouds where the sky always is blue.

This case didn't depend on the airlines is budget or high so, can be occurred any-where, any-time for any air company, This is the true life not an American movie.

Off course need some declamation words for the article ....

And something else:

The Ryanair (EU) had a plan to use flights with 1 pilot ...... Off course they can't, but they would. Crazy greedy people.

Hold on folks!

You can't blame Lion Air for this. The Co-pilot was only 41 years old, would have had all required health checks and just happened to die of a presumed HEART ATTACK..... thousands of people around the world do the same thing every day...without any warning.

I have no vested interest in LION AIR but come on, "fair suck of the Sav" (forgive the Aussie expression) but honestly, there is no way you can blame the carrier for this. The Skipper obviously did exactly what he should have done and all ended well...except for the poor Co-Pilot.

EXACTLY, this is more or less what I have been trying to say in all my previous posts todayclap2.gif

Anyone of us could have something go wrong in ones body causing pass-out at any time. We are not machines and we are not tested every day for a possible problem.

PS. One reason I never travel by bus/coach. whistling.gif
