As I mentioned in a previous post, the SMS program is all about liability. Or more to the point, TC absolving themselves of it.

An interesting clip, thanks for posting.


Still, a question that kept coming to mind was how would increased TC audits of Transwest Air have prevented the featured accident?


My understanding is that TC audits look more into maintenance, pilot training records, SOPs, paperwork etc etc, and not how air crew get along. I think alot of what this clip brings up is of valid concern, I just don't think they chose the best showcase of the failings of SMS.
