The judiciary, a central piece of Just Culture
Although we prefer not to think about it, we unfortunately might end up having to defend one of our decisions in front of a court. However, the judiciary does not always have the necessary expertise to fully understand aviation cases. This is why we need to work hand-in-hand with them, in order to provide them with all the tools to help them make the right decision. Every year, the Eurocontrol Just Culture task force, in collaboration with IFATCA (International Air Traffic Controllers’ Associations) and ECA (European Cockpit Association), organises a 3-day prosecutor expert course.
