MOSCOW, November 2 (Itar-Tass) —— The commander and the second pilot from an Yak-42 airplane, which crashed outside Yaroslavl, had much less flight hours on this type of airplane than on Yak-40, the chairman of the technical comittee of the Interstate Aviation Commission (MAK) Alexei Morozov said on Wednesday.
“The crew commander has more than 1,900 flying hours on Yak-42, but about 4,700 flying hours on Yak-40,” he said. “The second pilot had much less flying hours on Yak-42 with a total of 13,500 flying hours,” he said.
Meanwhile, the Yak Service air company, which owned the crashed airplane, did not retrain the pilots.
“The crew had two leaders – the commander and the second pilot. Meanwhile, the authority of the second pilot is higher,” Morozov underlined.
