WERNER KURZ from FRANKFURT/ GERMANY wrote:
This airplane would not receive an airworthiness certificate in western states but this doesn't mean it's not safe. Flight Safety mainly comes from good pilot training and experience, from well-established airline procedures, from proficient Air Traffic Control and from a good regulatory oversight by the national Civil Aviation Authority and not so much from technical aircraft requirements which all modern airplanes generally fulfill as long as their technical maintenance complies with international standards.
