AF447 Investigation Fails to Deter Future Mishaps

It is with great sadness that I note the issuance of BEA’s recommendation for new data streaming requirements for all pax acft.
In other words, BEA is saying, “To help us reduce our costs in locating the next accident site, we would like all of you to stream your DFDR.”

Well, that pretty much sums up what BEA expects- many more mishaps. This is a terribly failed approach to a Safety Investigation of such a serious nature.

Rather, BEA should be devoting themselves to ensuring that this mishap never happens again. Plain and simple.
