Trial Initiated for Better Tracking of Flights One Year After MH370’s Disappearance

Trial Initiated for Better Tracking of Flights One Year After MH370’s DisappearanceFollowing the accident of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, countries like Australia, Malaysia and Indonesia are initiating a trial that will permit the air traffic controllers to track aircrafts more closely while traversing the distant oceans.

The mystery of the disappeared Boeing 777 aircraft still remains unsolved as no trace has yet been found of the plane that disappeared one year back during this week. It was carrying 227 passengers most of whom were Chinese along with twelve crew members. The flight was going to Beijing

On March 8, last year the MH370 went missing from radar screens soon after it took off from Kuala Lumpur. The investigators think that the flight flew off course for thousands of miles and finally crashed into the remote ocean somewhere near Australia.

According to the new system that is being trailed, all long-haul planes would in fact necessarily check in every fifteen minutes and not as per the previously required time gap of thirty to forty minutes. The test will be tried on the long-haul flights that cover approximately eleven percent area of the surface of the world.

However, no detailed information regarding the routes or flights of the test was available immediately.
