This should not be happening in one of the most resource rich nations in the world. Nigeria must do better. What say YE?!!!
The pilot of the Nigerian jetliner that crashed in Lagos, the country’s largest city, on Sunday was an American, said Oscar Wason, Dana Air’s director of operations, on Monday.
Wason did not identify the pilot by name or hometown, but he is among a legion of U.S. pilots now captaining jets for foreign airlines, said Kit Darby, an aviation consultant in Peachtree City, Georgia.
“A lot of U.S. pilots are working overseas, more than ever before,” Darby said. “It’s pretty common.”
Darby said that as airlines have consolidated in the U.S., the job market for experienced airline captains has become “stagnant.” Experienced captains are losing seniority, and it may take them 10 to 20 years to get a captain’s position back, he said.
