Training to terrorize in AZ’s friendly skies? & Update

Andreas Lubitz, the homicidal co-pilot of the Germanwings Flight 9525 who by all accounts locked the pilot out of the cockpit before deliberately crashing into the French Alps, murdering all 149 aboard, had an Arizona connection. A spokesman for Lufthansa, the parent company of Germanwings, acknowledged “Every Lufthansa pilot does part of their training in Phoenix, simply because the weather there is so good and conditions are good for flying.”

The flight school training program takes between a year and a half to two years to complete, and includes several months in Arizona flying small training aircraft, as well as simulator and classroom work. The Airline Training Center Arizona, an arm of Lufthansa, has trained the German airline’s pilots for 45 years,  according to its website, which proclaims “Students From Europe To Asia All Train Under The Sunny Skys (sic) Over Metropolitan Phoenix. Perfect Conditions For Learning To Fly.”

The Phoenix area is home to a large number of flight schools, which make good use of our usually clear skies.

The pilot who crashed a hijacked airliner into the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001, did his flight training in Arizona. The hijackers on American Airlines Flight 77 were led by Hani Hanjour who trained at the CRM Airline Training Center in Scottsdale, Arizona, where he received an FAA commercial pilot’s certificate. He had previously been rejected for pilot’s training in Saudi Arabia.

In all probability, they have more rigorous psychological testing.


Monday, March 30, 2015:

 It is now being revealed by Duesseldorf prosecutors that the mass murdering co-pilot Andreas Lubitz, had received treatment for suicidal tendencies for several years —- before becoming a pilot.

 “In the following period, and until recently, further doctor’s visits took place, resulting in sick notes without any suicidal tendencies or aggression against others being recorded.”

 Lubitz’ former girlfriend said he was planning a spectacular gesture so “everyone will know my name,” a German daily reported on Saturday. “I didn’t know what he meant by that at the time, but now it’s obvious,” she said. “He did it because he realized that, due to his health problems, his big dream of working at Lufthansa, of a having job as a pilot, and as a pilot on long-distance flights, was nearly impossible.”

 “He never talked much about his illness, only that he was in psychiatric treatment,” she told the paper, adding they finally broke up because she was afraid of him.

 German authorities have said they had found torn-up sick notes from his doctor showing he had been suffering from an illness that should have grounded him on the day of the tragedy. A chief French investigator raises other questions, after being quoted as saying it was too early to rule out other explanations for the crash.  “There is obviously a scenario that is well known to the media and which we are focusing on,” investigator General Jean-Pierre Michel told French media.

    So, I came across the following:!/2015/03/muslim-convert-co-pilot-andreas-gunter.html

    …and then this:!

    Now, Gateway Pundit I’ve heard of, Roman Catholic Imperialist, not so much. I’m NOT saying I agree or disagree with what I’ve found, I just thought SRAZ & All would be interested. I do believe “th’ regieme” stated early on that they were POSITIVE this wasn’t terrorism (as usual…..).

    • Seeing Red AZ says:

      Thanks, Doc. As usual you are good to share this important information that has, for all intents and purposes, been tamped down by the MSM. Both of these sources point to the same conclusion, that the German co-pilot Andreas Lubitz was a radicalized Muslim convert. We’ll keep watching for more from the politically correct networks and lamestream news sources on this.

      • Doc says:

        Always & anytime, You’re welcome SRAZ & All! I’d like to point out here that foxnews is currently still ignoring this as well. Pretty sad, really. I remember when the news was actually….th’ news.

      Why am I not surprised? It could be due to the fact that this would not have been the first time such obscene events have occurred. If this information is verified, it will be high time we put an end to the foolishness of the zombie-like recitation that “Islam is a religion of peace.” Islam is a not actually even a religion but an overarching culture based in total control with violence for deviation, with the ultimate goal of global domination. Political correctness, including failure to identify things as they are, not what we wish them to be, will be our downfall.

    Psychological testing should be included in training and throughout any pilot’s career. Too many lives are at risk otherwise.

  3. Saguaro Sam says:

    Take a look at this news report, suggesting that there may be proof that this man was a recent convert to Islam.

    What is it about arizona that attracts terrorists. Was he here when janet nepolitano was governor then it would be understandable.
