      24 years old is awfully young to be first captain of a commercial airliner

      24 YEARS OLD IS AWFULLY YOUNG TO BE FIRST OFFICER OF AN COMMERCIAL AIRLINE.

      Both pilots broke aviation and company rules governing cockpit chatter, previous day's commute, and previous evening's sleep. NTSB testimony from a test pilot expert in the type of aircraft involved indicates that the captain performed exactly the wrong manuever when the plane warned him of the stall which eventually killed them. There is some question as to whether the company operating the flight provided either pilot proper training for the type of aircraft they were piloting. The airline's top two training officials recently resigned. Finally, it appears the captain may have neglected to disclose having failed three FAA profiency checks when he was applying for work with the airline. Looks like there's plenty of lessons to point toward future improvements. Next time I fly, I'd like to think the NTSB, airlines, pilots' union, and FAA addressed these problems deliberately and with all the facts at hand. I think we've got enough to go on without blaming "Affirmative Action," sunspots, or someone's mom not loving him.

      You are an idiot. The captain was a 47 year old, white male. And he had the controls, she was on the radio. Get your facts straight. And screw off.

      DIVERSITY in action. Old man pilot lands safely in Hudson. 24 year old placed by Affirmitive Action doesn't fare as well? Wonder Why?
