Airline blames pilots for crash

Colgan Air is blaming pilot error for the crash in Buffalo last February that killed all 49  on board and one person on the ground.


The airline released a 67 page report that blames the captain and first officer for not responding correctly to stall warnings, not completing checklists and failure to follow rules that prohibit unnecessary conversation during critical phases of flight.


The report concluded that the crash was due to ”loss of situational awareness and failure to follow Colgan Air training and procedures” by the captain and first officer.


The report did not blame the airline itself for placing two unqualified pilots into that cockpit.


Capt. Marvin Renslow, failed three pilot tests before joining the airline, but had disclosed only one on a job application. He failed another two check-rides while at Colgan Air.


First Officer Rebecca Shaw was a low time pilot who was earning a paltry $26/hour.


Both pilots were not properly trained or checked out by Colgan Air.


Colgan Air, in an attempt to further distance itself for taking at least partial responsibility for the crash also added that the pilots did not manage their time properly in the days leading up to the crash.


While it appears clear that these 2 pilots were in over their heads on the night of the crash, Colgan is ultimately responsible for the death of 50 people that night.
