    The Russian Federal Air Transport Agency urged airlines to carry out training on how to recover a Boeing 737 airplane from a "complex space attitude, according to local media.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Russian Federal Air Transport Agency ordered air companies to check their pilots’ skills at going around after a landing attempt following the Flydubai passenger jet crash in Russia’s Rostov-on-Don, local media reported.

    The leaflet instruction also urged the companies to carry out training on how to recover a Boeing 737 airplane from a "complex space attitude," the Russian Kommersant newspaper said Thursday.

    According to the media outlet, the training presupposes the simulation of a go-around after a landing attempt "in a manual mode and from different heights."

    The Russian Federal Air Transport Agency’s order follows the Flydubai plane crash during a landing attempt in Rostov-on-Don during foul weather conditions on March 19, which killed all 62 people on board.

    Earlier in the day, the Interstate Aviation Committee said the crew had been approaching to land manually and made a nosedive at a speed of 600 kilometers an hour at 50 degrees while attempting to go around before crashing into the ground.
