The ATC community again got news from the court room this week. This time for good. One of the cases of a Swiss ATCO being subject to legal action after self-reporting a mistake has been finally closed by the Federal Court. In its ruling, the Court declared the ATCO innocent of public traffic impairment. Self-reporting and learning from mistakes is an important part of safety and a fostering a just culture is a key to self reporting. Other cases are still pending but it seems that the legal system in Switzerland is going in the right direction. Read more in the press release from skyguide.
