DIRECTOR General of the Trinidad and ..., 24 Mar 2014 [cached]
DIRECTOR General of the Trinidad and Tobago Civil Aviation Authority, Ramesh Lutchmedial, said yesterday, despite the concerns surrounding Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, flying still remains the safest form of transportation.
Lutchmedial made the statement yesterday as he sought to allay the fears of individuals who may second-guess flying as transportation option, following the bizarre circumstances surrounding Flight MH370.
Lutchmedial yesterday said mystery still surrounds the entire flight MH370 incident.
"The organisations responsible for safety certification and providing of air navigation services whatever we do, we do it with safety being of paramount importance and therefore whenever you have incidents that result in the loss of life you know it remains a cause for real concern and there is a lot about this flight that still remains a mystery because the flight was really intended to travel all the way up to Beijing and then appeared to make a turn and then went west and then headed back down south, and the reasons for that are all unknown," Lutchmedial said.
Lutchmedial said if the plane's two recorders are recovered then, "they can to some extent reconstruct what occurred".
"Clearly, the aircraft at the time it made that deviation from its planned flight it then flew for a number of hours which meant the aircraft was in perfect working condition, in terms of the mechanical aspect of it, but what happened inside the cockpit was a different story that no one would know until you can get the cockpit voice recorder which would record the conversations and the noise in the cockpit," he said.
Amid the concern surrounding flight MH370 and flying on a whole, Lutchmedial expressed faith in the system.
Lutchmedial said given the number of aircraft incidents per day compared to number of passengers means "it is by far the safest form of transportation".
"Aircraft systems have matured and they are very, very reliable. Aviation security has been significantly enhanced after 9/11 (September 11, 2001), of course there is no such thing as a perfect system so you know ever so often someone might be able to exploit a weak link in the safety and security chain, but I am saying all of that with the caveat that we really do not know what happened to the flight except that based on modelling if the flight had so much of fuel on board which they would have known then if it flew X number of hours where the flap lights are not receiving a signal meant that it may have run out of fuel and that is the assumption they are using to say it went down in the sea in that area because it used up all of the fuel on board," Lutchmedial said.

Contacted for comment, Director General of Civil Aviation, Ramesh Lutchmedial said rumours of an ebola scare at the airport were just that - rumours.
"Those rumours are false and you can quote me on that. The man was inspected by a doctor and he was cleared," Lutchmedial said. He confirmed that the passenger was isolated and measures taken to ensure the passenger was not a carrier of the virus.
It was learnt that he was a Nigerian doctor living in London, and who had not returned to his homeland in years.

The process of removing the damaged CAL aircraft from the Guyana airport field will be completed by next Wednesday, says T&T Civil Aviation head, Ramesh Lutchmedial. Lutchmedial spoke yesterday after returning to T&T following the start of the probe into the incident. Lutchmedial is part of the international multidisciplinary team instituted by Guyanese authorities to investigate the issue along various lines. The investigation, being co-ordinated by Guyana's Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA), involves five teams comprising investigators from the GCAA, Caribbean Aviation Safety Oversight and Security System, the US National Transportation and Safety Board, T&T's Civil Aviation Authority, Boeing Aircraft Company, Caribbean Airlines Limited and Suriname's Civil Aviation Authority.
Lutchmedial said teams yesterday began removing the aircraft from the runway field. "We'll have to drop the engines and altogether the move will take several days and should be completed by next Tuesday, Wednesday," he added. Lutchmedial said the aircraft had to be kept intact until completion of the probe.
When this concludes and it is released by Guyanese authorities, it will be handed back to CAL. Lutchmedial was highly critical of a Guyanese news report concerning the situation yesterday. He said: "I'm very disturbed about this because we need to steer clear of all speculation for the probe to be done properly.
