    <p>Prevention is better than cure A gram of prevention is worth a kilo of cure, as your pilot training article (<i style='mso-bidi-font-style:normal'>Flight International</i>, 31 August-6 September) illustrates. From my experience, upset recovery training in a simulator costs little on a recurrent basis and can yield dividends as a tombstone imperative. It is treated as a training service bulletin rather than an airworthiness directive. It should be treated as the latter since loss of control events are relatively rare. Surely it is better to be proactive than reactive? Police extreme driving is not often called for, but clearly not superfluous. A recalcitrant aircraft can require extreme flying. Who knows for certain what such recalcitrance should befall a pilot. It could be inattention, atmosphere or wake. The Airbus contribution to the US National Transportation Board inquiry into the American Airlines A300-600 accident in December 2001 shows that it believes the maximum wake roll t

  • Gleaming Gardermoen

    News | 01 Dec 1998 00:00

    Can Norway's attractive new hub at Gardermoen carve out an international role in the Scandinavian market? <p>Oslo's futuristic new airport at Gardermoen can probably lay claim to being Europe's last major new opening this side of the millennium. It is undoubtedly a gleaming example of Norwegian architecture, coming complete with a smart express rail link into the city centre. </p> <p>Yet as the new NKr9 billion ($1.2 billion)airport opened its doors in October, there were still some lingering signs of a rather older tradition: the adversarial relationship between airport planners and airline management. Braathens, effectively Norway's national carrier with half the domestic market, wanted a different location south of Oslo, close to the city's major catchment area. This earlier choice was abandoned by the Norwegian Parliament in favour of Gardermoen, an existing charter airport 47km north of the City. </p> <p>A southern site would have placed the airport in the right direction, acc

    <p>As British Airways' low cost Go takes to the skies, the UK's leading no frills carrier, EasyJet, is expanding overseas while low-cost Virgin Express eyes a UK base. </p> <p>Go is due to start flying out of its London/Stansted base to Rome/Ciampino on 22 May, Milan/Malpensa on 23 May and Copenhagen/Kastrup on 5 June with twice-daily flights. </p> <p>Although Go will not compete with EasyJet on the routes, EasyJet's chairman Stelios Haji-Ioannou predicts that 'we will be crossing swords very soon'. He will proceed with legal action, due for an initial hearing in the UK High Court on 11 May, alleging that BA is illegally cross-subsidising Go. Go's sales and marketing director David Magliano meanwhile, insists 'we're confident that there's nothing anticompetitive about everything that Go has done'. </p> <p>While BAmoves into the low cost arena, EasyJet is moving into Switzerland. EasyJet has acquired a 40 per cent stake in Swiss charter airline TEA and plans to relaunch it as EasyJet
