IFALPA-ECA Statement

IFALPA has condemned the publication by Irish Authorities of a CVR transcript from the crash of the CHC Sikorsky S-92 “Rescue 116” helicopter flight, that crashed in the Atlantic on 14 March 2017 killing all 4 occupants. 

IFALPA and the ECA called for proper adherence to the proper accident investigation process, and expressed dissatisfaction with this breach of international standards on the basis that the only thing such publications achieve is nurturing a perverse thirst for sensationalism.  The AFAP stands together with its foreign member associations and IFALPA against such potentially unlawful relaxations of the protections as given to CVR information by the international aviation community through ICAO.
