    Rosaviatsia recommends Tatarstan Airlines be grounded

    Tatarstan Airlines (Tatarstan Aircompany) (Kazan, Tatarstan, Russia) is still operating. However Rosaviatsia, the Russian federal air transportation agency that monitors airline safety activities, has recommended the airline be grounded due to alleged breaches in training and crew rest times according to The Moscow News. The Boeing 737-500 that crashed at Kazan on November 17 was attempting a go around when it crashed directly into ground killing all 50 passengers and crew members on board. The crew may have not been properly trained and apparently lost control of the aircraft.
