State auditor issued report against Bay Area Bar Pilots


Among the conclusions:

  • Many pilots may not have been properly trained or evaluated, some were allowed to work without getting a required physical.
  • The board took too long to complete its accident investigations.
  • Pilots were allowed to fly business class to France for a seminar when they could have flown cheaper.
A Bar Pilot was held accountable for the crash of the Cosco Busan, and the oil spill that resulted, two years ago this month.
