Oh no.. The Flight Crew Hit it right on the money... Right in the middle of the company's bank account. The NTSB did a good report. It pointed out some issues with the airport rescue, and problems with some slides on the plane as a result of the unusual impact, but I don't think this could have been for seen. The NTSB released a good report.

The report finds that two of the fatalities would probably have survived had they been wearing seatbelts, but does not make any recommendations based on this. This was a serious failure by the cabin crew, in not ensuring that all passengers were restrained.

“I think this is a case of the pilot flying the airplane expecting the airplane would do something… that it wasn’t designed to do.”

And that misplaced expectation is unrelated to competency?

Easier politically to blame the machine (Boeing) than the man (ill-trained pilot), but if the safety and accident record of Asiana is reviewed there is a clear indication of 'incompetency' involved in these events - many of which can be directly related to pilot training and familiarity with an aircraft's systems. Flight simulation training has its merits, but cannot replace real world seat of the pants flying time to understand how an aircraft will react under all - including ideal - environmental and flight conditions. Personally, I believe too much complacency that the autoland system would put the aircraft onto the proper glideslope, airspeed and descent rate - and not flying the aircraft you are in command of, not a computer - is a failure seen in more and more younger pilots. Flight (training) time is expensive and to cut costs most airlines (US included) is becoming more reliant upon flight simulator time to build pilot hours and competency. I feel safer on the ground now a days thatn I did 20 years ago if I have to fly commercial.

Lesson, both here and flt 570, don't fly Gook Airlines. But sometimes that is all that is going your way!!!

570! iPad strikes again. Automation strikes again coupled with carelessness. Sound familiar?

Just wondering if pressing the "FLCH SPD" would have been appropriate during an approach on other Boeing airliners or if this works differently on the B-777? And, does dis-engaging the A/P and A/T during a visual approach procedure differ among other airline policies? If yes, why is this so?

Why require Boeing to come up with additional documentation? Lots of people have been properly trained and had no problems flying and landing Boeing 777s until these guys came along and showed you can't do it if you're not properly trained.

They did not want to throw all the blame on Asiana... Even though it was all their fault. Just political BS...

‘Crew competency’ not a factor in Asiana Boeing 777 crash: NTSB

The National Transportation Safety Board’s (NTSB) hearing into the causes of the crash of Asiana flight 214 last year continues to focus on misunderstanding of the aircraft’s systems, with one board member saying “crew competency” was not an issue.

‘“I personally do not believe this is a case of crew competency,” says board member Robert Sumwalt. “I think this is a case of the pilot flying the airplane expecting the airplane would do something… that it wasn’t designed to do.”
