Only one TransAsia pilot fails latest safety test after crash

TAIPEI (Reuters) - Only one of 53 pilots at TransAsia Airways Corp failed a second-round proficiency test held in the wake of a crash last month which killed 43 people, Taiwan's Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA) said on Tuesday.

A first round of testing saw 10 pilots out of 49 fail an oral test to evaluate a pilot's ability to handle an aircraft during engine failure and another 19 did not attend the test, leading to the suspension of all 29.
