Sukhoi Pilot too confident?

Former CEO of Pelita Air Service is also the Indian aviation observer Sukardi, reveal many things to be the cause of the crash of Sukhoi Superjet 100 in Mount Salak. One of them came from the pilot that the possibility of over-confidence (over confidence). "If we see, for example, such as Formula 1 racing, the car advanced, advanced riders, but sometimes there are accidents. So if I see it, in terms of aircraft technology if there is a possibility as well," said Ocean, while attending the discussion 'The tragedy of Flight again ', in Warung Daun Cikini, Jakarta Aleksandr Yablontsev pilot figure, according to the Ocean, could be one factor causing the crash. "Well from the pilot, the pilot can also convidence over, because he had major flying hours and he was actually a test pilot. He's new Sukhoi test is the first time," said Ocean. As is known, is a pilot Yablontsev born Warsaw, Poland, 3 April 1955. He has flown 221 types of aircraft and pocketed more than 14 thousand hours of flying. History of education, he graduated from the Higher Military Pilot School, Armavir, in 1976. Other factors, continued the Indian, the possibility of bad weather and a bit foggy, making the pilot may wish to avoid the weather was bright weather, so do not know the terrain that it faces. "Because if it should dibriefing pilot, before he flew, coming through everywhere, and there is anything there. Well if joy flight itself, was given a little freedom because, he would show a little of the plane's performance," he concluded.

Im sorry but I kinda disagree with this statement made by Sukardi, it is really sad to blame on the pilot when the KNKT is still investigating this case. air flight accident's investigation ussualy take 6 months to a year of investigation so better not to make a premature judgement. Shame on Sukardi, he never knew what was going on inside the plane it is easier to make statement but his statement doesnt make the situation better. We can only make assumption but then sukardi please do not make statement that might hurt the family member of the SSJ victims. According to Lapan there was a tick fog surrounding Mount Salak at 37,000 feet, the fog was too tick, it left only one choice for the pilot which was to go down at 6000 feet but alas they cannot avoid the crash. Well, this accident has left so many questions, better not blaming the pilot. 1st. why did ATC gave permission to Sukhoi Pilot to go down at 6,000 feet when they knew the Mount Salak is about 7,000 feet! 2nd question, who made this plane route, okay... the Pilot never flied here before but that is not an excuse to blame on the pilot! A pilot never worked alone he was guided by the ATC, he worked according to the route, the question is who made the route, who gave permission to pass Mount Salak at 2pm? Mount Salak is known for it's tick fog, and as I know there is no flight pass Mount Salak in the afernoon, the only airplane pass Mount Salak is a flight from jakarta to western australia but the route is in the morning to avoid the tick fog. So who gave permission to pass Mount Salak that day? Oh come on Sukardi, it is a commercial air plane it is not the typically of military air plane which can perform air flight attraction, commercial air plane is way bigger than the millitary air plane it is almost impossible to make that kind of air flight attraction so sukardi's assumption is totally ridiculous. May God Bless their soul.
