Acreditem, o acidente com o avião da Gol pode ter sido causado por uma falha de comunicação (Inglês precário). Leia o texto da Reuters:
The recordings, parts of which were published by Folha, show that the ExcelAire pilots had trouble understanding the English spoken by Brazilian air traffic controllers. The plane was flown by Joseph Lepore, 42, and Jan Paladino, 34, both of New York state.
According to the transcript, which Folha translated into Portuguese, the control tower in Sao Jose dos Campos authorized the Legacy before take-off to fly at 37,000 feet but made no mention of other altitudes foreseen in the original flight plan. Apparently unsure of what they heard, the pilots asked three times for clarification without getting a response.
The transcript, which was prepared by the National Transportation Safety Board in Washington, also shows that air traffic controllers in Brasilia mistakenly believed that the Legacy was flying at 36,000 feet.
