Just culture under pressure in Switzerland

The most significant news for ATC this week did not come from a tower or an ACC but from a court room.

It must be noted that the safety nets on ground and in the air worked as expected and no body got hurt in this incident. The ruling is now final and binding and the fine has been confirmed too. This puts a very negative pressure on the just culture in which ATCOs can report mistakes with the goal to learn and profit from them.

Here is skyguide's press release after the court's ruling.
