    Re: A credible AIS track for the Costa Concordia

    The most notably being the decision to take off (without clear consent by air traffic control and doubts among his crew) by KLM captain/company chief-instructor Jacob Louis Veldhuyzen van Zanten on March 27 1977.
    583 casualties was more than enough to have the civil aviation industry reduce the absoluteness of a captains authority.

    "That's a good question. In commercial aviation, as I understand it, there was a major push starting a few decades ago to give the copilot more authority to question the captain in the cockpit. Not just by rules and regulation, but by training. A number of deadly accidents were blamed in part on crew members too timid or too respectful to speak up to the captain."
