Statement on QF781

AIPA < 1 mins read

The Australian and International Pilots Association has lauded the professionalism of the QF781 crew after a safe landing.


QF781 from Melbourne to Perth landed safely in Perth on Monday night after a suspected engine failure on descent.


“These types of incidents are extremely rare but Qantas pilots are very well prepared to manage them safely,” said AIPA President Tony Lucas.


“The safety of our passengers, crew and cargo is always the priority for any pilot and we rigorously train for these unlikely scenarios.


“The QF781 crew displayed great professionalism, skill and expertise in delivering a safe outcome for everyone.  


“This incident demonstrates that having two well-rested and well-trained pilots on the flight deck is the best safety feature available to aviation.”
