Anyone who has been on our fear of flying course knows what I think of the media and their reports about aviation.
On the course we take a look at one report from the press and discuss it in detail which is enough to stop anyone bothering to look at a press report again.
But today we have more evidence of sensationalism. Third item in the news ” Pilots’ new working hours are dangerous.” Really? Actually it’s a report of a report…the new rules aren’t for implementation for this year or next and the facts that I got from the news item were…none! They didn’t mention the consultation that is required from interested parties. What a waste of time and nervous energy for most of us.
