  • An Air NZ pilot crashed in a simulator. So why does the airline have to pay him 20k?

    Air New Zealand must pay $20,000 to pilot following flight simulator saga: Employment Relations Authority

    Air New Zealand must pay $20,000 for not acting in good faith to a veteran pilot stood down after crashing a simulator.Peter Cross, a Boeing 777 captain, was stood down after a full failure in the simulator during an assessment in March 2015. His medical certificate was not renewed by the Civil Aviation Authority later that year.
    A ruling by the Employment Relations Authority said Cross understood the non-renewal of his medical certificate to be related to the simulator incident.
    During the assessment, Cross did not respond correctly to a simulated autopilot failure at an altitude of around 70m.

    If that (not quite 13,000USD) is all it's going to cost Air NZ to get rid of him, it may well be the best deal they've ever received on anything.
