SAA has a shortage of trained flight inspectors. The task of the inspectors is to examine and evaluate each aircraft in SAA’s fleet.
According to informed sources, the current corps of inspectors is “dangerously under-qualified” and there is a lack of the necessary experience for such an important task.
Two new Airbus A350S will be delivered soon and none of the flight inspectors have the necessary qualifications to evaluate the aircraft.
Unconfirmed reports indicate that the SAA, with the application of the ANC’s labor laws, now employs extremely inexperienced personnel to do vital work on aircraft.
