IMPACT conference liveblog: IFALPA statement on missing Egyptair flight MS804

IMPACT’s pilots’ branch, IALPA, has circulated a statement by the international pilots’ body about the missing Egyptair flight MS804.

“The International Federation of Air Line Pilots’ Associations (IFALPA) is closely
monitoring the developments related to the disappearance of Egyptair flight MS 804, an Airbus A320 en-route from Paris (CDG) to Cairo (CAI).

Our thoughts and best hopes are with the 66 crew and passengers onboard the aircraft, and their families. Whilst the search and rescue efforts are taking place, IFALPA stresses the need to avoid speculation as to what happened to the aircraft. The Federation has reached out to the Egyptian Air Line Pilots’ Association and will offer its expertise to the Egyptian Accident Investigation Agency in order to help gather facts and any other information which may be pertinent to this event.”
