I received an email today seeking opinion and speculation on the recent Air France tragedy, and asking why I have not blogged about it. To put it simply, blogging is a hobby, and my day job still involves aviation. I do not work for the FAA or NTSB, but I am in and around aviation, specifically safety, and that’s about all I’ll say. Some of the things I do at work would be interesting as hell to many readers, and I wish I could share them here. However, that simply would not be appropriate.
While this particular accident involves a foreign aircraft flying between two foreign countries, I still wouldn’t feel comfortable opining on the situation here. Do I have an opinion? You bet I do! But anything I would have to say about this accident would be pure speculation.
That’s the brief 411 on why I don’t blog about aviation accidents. I’ll try to keep the things I can blog about interesting and fresh. Thanks so very much for reading!
