Kanata, Canada-based First Air said it fired two Boeing 737 pilots last week after an incident in which the crew allowed the aircraft to stray from its programmed flight plan on a March 31 trip between Rankin Inlet, Nunavut, and Iqaluit. Initial reports claim the pilots might not have followed the company’s standard operating procedures and mis-programmed the aircraft’s flight management system. The aircraft, carrying 19 passengers and four crewmembers, arrived safely at its destination, 20 minutes late.
