(Bloomberg) — Taiwan ordered the grounding of 10 pilots of TransAsia Airways Corp. after a test following last week's deadly plane crash showed they needed more training in emergency procedures, the Civil Aeronautics Administration said.

A further 19 pilots, who haven't yet been tested, also won't be allowed to fly for now, CAA Director-General Tim Lin said today at a news conference in Taipei. The 10 pilots have been grounded indefinitely and will undergo "intensive training" on emergency procedures, he said.

"Those 10 cannot fly," he said. The airline said in response it will comply with the instructions. The 10 pilots had an average 6,905.52 flying hours of experience, the airline said in a separate statement.
