Germanwings crash probe recommends more medical checks for pilots
Published on 13/03/2016
The French probe into the crash of a Germanwings plane deliberately flown into a mountain by the co-pilot recommended more stringent medical checks for pilots in its conclusions published Sunday.
BEA civil aviation investigators also agreed with their earlier findings that the crash in the French Alps a year ago with the loss of 150 lives was caused by co-pilot Andreas Lubitz, who had been treated for depression.
The report said it recommended “regular analysis” of pilots to check for “psychological or psychiatric problems”.
