"Spies" will be installed in cockpits

Airlines are expected to be told later this month that all new aircraft will be fitted with cockpit video cameras from 2005, in spite of opposition from pilots in Britain and the United States. The International Civil Aviation
Organization (ICAO), which is the international ruling body on commercial aviation matters, hopes the cameras will provide air accident investigators with more evidence than is available from voice recordings.

ICAO is expected to announce its decision to make video cameras in cockpits a legal requirement at its conference in Canada in September.

Pilots are opposed to video cameras in the cockpit because they fear that video footage could be used
against them in legal action following an accident. They also believe that being filmed while they work could be distracting. The British Air Line Pilots Association claims the introduction of cockpit video recordings "offensive" and "an invasion of privacy". British law does provide pilots with some protection, however, as it prohibits voice recordings being released other than in the publics interest. The legislation is expected to be extended to cover video recordings.

Pilots in the US could be more vulnerable, however, as cockpit voice recordings were routinely released to the public until recently. New legislation introduced to prevent this made no mention of video recordings.

Well it should be too hard to find out where the camera is and then disable it.

A piece of chewing gum should work just fine!

I do understand that it would be distracting if a camera is monitoring you. It would be bad for pilots coz they would have to be extra worried and might not pay full attention during emergency,,,

Well whatever the security measures ...just imagine a camera behind you(or front of you) in your workplace....I just would not feel comfortable doing my normal routine itself!
