Source = e-Travel Blackboard: P.T Claims that airlines are “under reporting” safety incidents came to light as a Senate inquiry into aviation safety and pilot training commenced in Sydney this week. The inquiry comes off the back of the recent sacking of JetStar pilot, Joe Eakins, who raised concerns about the airlines safety records.You’re fired: Jetstar pilot sacked over safety concerns Mr Eakins is currently seeking workplace reinstatement and his lawyers have advised him against giving evidence at the inquiry due to fears it would adversely affect his ability to get his job back. Jetstar has labelled Mr Eakins’s claims as “malicious” and said he had been fired for breaching the airline’s code of conduct and employment arrangements – not for reporting legitimate concerns, according to the Sydney Morning Herald. The investigation is being carried out because of airline’s reluctance to report all safety events. The Pilots Association have requested a central database be established, under the management of the Australian Transport Safety Bureau, to monitor and record safety information. Pilots Association Vice-President, Richard Woodward, expressed concerns pilots were afraid to come forward and provide the Senate with vital information.“There is a pool of pilots that are quite concerned about reprisals. The ones we are hearing from are, in essence, the tip of the iceberg,” he said.Other concerns raised during the Senate investigation included training and the offshoring of pilots’ jobs to Asia.
