Not quite good enough?

A recent article on http://www.insidesources.com discusses the current trend in airline fatalities.

2017 Ended Without Any Commercial Jet Crash Fatalities. Can the Streak Continue?

The article states that Africa and Middle East have safety cultures that are “not as rigorous” as, presumably, those in Europe and the United States. Is this true or are the authors once again buying into the sentiment that exists that people think that we in Africa and the Middle East are just not quite good enough?

According to the IATA, sub-Saharan Africa still has an accident rate 44 percent higher than the global average, seems they may have a point……..

Is the problem with the “standards” or with training and application of the standards?

Is it an attitude, selection or leadership problem?

Do we have a culture problem?

Most important what are we going to do about it?
