Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk told his country's parliament that political games should not affect the pursuit for the truth in the investigation into the plane crash that killed the former president.

Tusk is saying exactly the right thing, this report mustn’t be politicised, and it must be kept technical. However these are words, he can help himself greatly if he now institutes concrete steps: the first is to educate the Polish people on the realities of the aviation industry, that it is regulated, and that there are absolutely defined rules and responsibilities. Obviously no one will trust a Russian view, but luckily this is not necessary. He should reference the copious amounts of western material that outlines the pilots responsibilities and the problems we have in the aviation industry with ‘pilot pushing’- if he is smart he can become an advocate of flight safety for Polish people purely based on western experience in aviation. This will instil the reality of the rules of aviation in the polish People and stop them becoming used victims, through ignorance by other parties. Secondly he can make the Polish investigative committee independent of politics, constitute it without political sitters, and give it independently to the Polish aviation experts. Let them pull in the highly competent aviation experts Poland has, pull in the Polish airlines Training Captains, the civilian and military instructors, the senior ATC personnel, both civil and military, the aviation officials….. Tusk can win this hands down on science, he can win flight safety for the Polish people based on the truth of correct analysis based on the rules of aviation, he can save Poland from silliness and embarrassment, and for me there is not a single genuine aviation expert who will not pull out all stops to help him. What is being generated by politicians now are plausible arguments on the surface which are totally invalid under in the context of the regulated aviation business. Pilots all around the world are operating from airfields ranging from, bush strips for doctors in Australia… to full CAT III (high tech) set ups at major airports. They do this safely, because they follow the rules.
