    Following an agreement with Transport Canada, Air Canada will have to review the security of all of its operations, including the training of its pilots, reported the Toronto Star. These measures echo to two incidents that occurred last year at the San Francisco airport.

    Air Canada will make an assessment of the safety of its flights, reducing the time between the training and the assessment of its drivers in six months and conduct flights under supervision to and from the airport in San Francisco.

    “These are good measures. By cons, it lacks a crucial element, is the problem of fatigue experienced by drivers in Canada,” said Ross Aimer, a former pilot for United Airlines when asked by the Bay Area News Group.

    The air carrier has agreed to undertake this approach, which echoes two incidents that occurred last year at the San Francisco airport in the United States. In July 2017, a pilot for Air Canada had failed to land on four other aircraft, merging with another airstrip that had been assigned to him. Three months later, another company pilot had ignored warnings to change the track that he had addressed to the control tower of the airport.

    The federal aviation administration u.s. (FAA) said it was satisfied with the measures that should be taken by the company.
