It is being announced on TV that the new runway of Mangalore Airport allows no room for error and landing has to be precise otherwise accidents will happen.
My question is - why build such runways that allow for no margin of error?
( Pilots are human after all. This pilot it seems realized he was at the edge of the valley and tried to take off again but failed and the plane crashed.)

Then by your logic we have to decommission all the aircraft carriers available in the navy. No airport allows margin of error, except that this margin is MUCH less in table top runways and in aircraft carriers. So who the hell selected pilots who had no exposure to deck landing to land in such environments? THAT is the problem, not building the airport w/a table top runway.
The problem here is selecting pilots w/o aircraft carrier experience. And I know your gonna fire me for this but then this privatized aviation institutes are all BS. Pilots only need 2 b drawn from Airforce and Navy, that too w/ pilots who've handled flights like MiG-21 and can at least land a propellor plane in an aircraft carrier.
A commercial civil aviation training academy teaches u how to do something rite with perfection but it is that MiG-21 experience which tells u what 2 do when u don't do what u were supposed 2 with perfection. Private CIvil aviation doesn't teach u that becuse there ain't that man
