Eye on ship ground­ings

The Northern Advocate - - Nation -

The Trans­port Ac­ci­dent In­ves­ti­ga­tion Com­mis­sion has added ma­rine nav­i­ga­tion to its watchlist af­ter re­cent cases of poor nav­i­ga­tion. Mar­itime Pi­lots As­so­ci­a­tion pres­i­dent Steve Banks says it’s not only in­ex­pe­ri­enced pi­lots mak­ing the mis­takes, which in­di­cates a wider prob­lem. Banks says they’ve spo­ken to TAIC in the past about sys­temic is­sues they have iden­ti­fied.
