DNA Exclusive: Poor Training Of Pilots, Crew Led To Jet Mishap In Dhaka: DGCA


Inadequate training of pilots and other crew members had led to the fuel tank of a Jet Airways flight from Mumbai hitting the runway on landing at Dhaka International Airport last year, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has said.

There was a serious damage to the aircraft, and as many as 168 passengers on board had a narrow escape in the accident that took place in January 2017. The aviation regulator has made the observation in its investigation report submitted to the Union Ministry of Civil Aviation.

Flight 9W-276 had bounced with its nose-up higher than the normal on initial touchdown. The pilot in command then took over the controls in a second attempt, and the aircraft finally taxied, exiting the runway.

An inspection showed rubbing marks on the tail and damaged underbelly of the aircraft. The plane had to be grounded, and its return to Mumbai was cancelled.

DGCA noted that during the “shutdown procedure”, the crew did not pull the Cockpit Voice Recorder (CVR CB) out as required for the aircraft not equipped with the CVR ‘Auto switch.’ The relevant CVR recording was over written and was unavailable for investigation, the report reads. Read More…
