Skyguide notes Ueberlingen court judgments

Geneva, September 4, 2007. Skyguide has noted the judgments of the Bülach District Court in the criminal proceedings over the Überlingen air disaster. “It is extremely difficult to rule in legal terms on such a complex accident and assign responsibility,” says Francis Schubert, interim company CEO. “We, for our part, are convinced that this tragedy is attributable primarily to systemic causes in the interplay  between people, technology and procedures. Skyguide has learnt the lessons from this tragic event, and has done everything to ensure that an accident of this kind cannot happen again.”
