Now AirBus is feeling the India Inc software disaster, just like Boeing did.
Crappy Indian code that leaks so much memory it causes AirBus computers to require a restart every 149 hours has hit the European company.
Frequent computer restarts are a sign that software leaks so much memory the computer has to be restarted in order to restore functionality.
Airbus, like Boeing had outsourced a lot of its software to India Incs.
Years ago, a Quantas plane plunged 1000s of feet in mid-air due to the same outsourcing fails. Quantas had also outsourced to India. “Psycho automation” nearly crashed the aircraft.
The world’s US-created air transport system – mostly reliable for over 60 years is in danger of becoming deadly, thanks to the crappy Indian coder.
Obviously Indians can’t do it “better, faster, cheaper”.
Mr. Modi has a lot to answer for.
“The Register, a British tech news website, reports that some models of Airbus’s A350 airliners, the company’s ‘workhorse’ model, still need to be rebooted after exactly 149 hours of continuous use, even after the EU’s aviation authority ordered Airbus to fix the glitch ASAP.
Now, the EU is issuing a reminder to pilots to make sure to turn their planes on and off again after 149 hours of power-on time, or risk the loss of critical systems in-flight.
In a mandatory airworthiness directive (AD) reissued earlier this week, EASA urged operators to turn their A350s off and on again to prevent “partial or total loss of some avionics systems or functions.”
