Mental hygiene: Can regulations prevent the next Germanwings tragedy?
from By Mark Huber
So when exactly is someone too mentally unstable to be trusted with the flight controls of an aircraft? In the wake of the Germanwings co-pilot mass murder/suicide this spring, we can expect the usual hysteria and overreaction from politicians and regulators and additional pages of compliance trailing behind. But it all really comes down to personal responsibility. A pilot instinctively knows when he or she is mentally or physically fit to fly. That's where the question really begins and ends.
