MOSCOW, November 29, 14:34 /ITAR-TASS/. The Interstate Aviation Committee, after receiving preliminary results of the technical commission's investigation into the crash of a Tatarstan airlines plane in Kazan, has proposed a number of recommendations to improve Boeing 737 flight safety.
The committee proposes to hold a technical conference to exchange experience of Boeing 737 operation.
In accordance with the regulations for investigating civil aircraft accidents, the commission recommends to organize additional training for pilots, including training to operate when approaching a runway, making a second approach, when it is difficult to determine the position of the aircraft and study specific features of the Boeing 737 navigation system, the IAC website said.
The federal air transport agency Rosaviation is informed about the recommendations, the IAC said.
Investigators are studying the documentation of the Tatarstan airlines on training and retraining of crews to pilot Boeing 737s.
On November 17, when approaching Kazan airport, a Boeing 737 fell and exploded. The liner was on a flight from Moscow's Domodedovo airport. All the passengers and crew aboard, fifty people, died. The Russian Investigative Committee's main department has opened a criminal case on charges of air transport safety regulations violation that caused deaths.
