Rio-Paris investigators urge better pilot training
PARIS, July 29
PARIS, July 29 (Reuters) - French investigators called on Friday for better pilot training after a report into the crash of an Air France (AIRF.PA) Rio-Paris flight two years ago found the crew ignored stall warnings and standard procedures.
France's BEA authority said pilots failed to discuss the repeated "stall" alarms as their doomed Airbus jet plummeted 38,000 feet and hurtled into the ocean at 200 km (125 miles) per hour, killing all 228 people on board.
