Example text

Twenty-one passengers and five crew members were seriously injured and 68 passengers sustained minor or no injuries. 2 Cause According to Ref. 18 the NTSB determined the probable cause to be: 1. Inadequate cockpit discipline which resulted in the wing flaps and slats not having been properly configured for take-off, and 2. The failure of the take-off configuration warning system to alert the crew that the airplane was not properly configured for take-off. The NTSB found that the take-off warning system had an intermittent failure problem which was not corrected during the last maintenance activity.

Pilot workload under instrument conditions plus any emergency becomes very high. Designers should not assume that pilots will have the opportunity to trouble-shoot and perhaps figure out what to do in high workload cases such as this. 14) was on a training flight. 4 engine shortly after lift-off. 4 engine, the airplane began yawing to the right, the right wing dipped and the airplane crashed and burned. Of the five crew members on board, two survived with serious injuries. 2 Cause According to Ref.

In-flight training toward a type-certificate should involve training to cope with this type of mistake. Cross certifying of flight crew members on different aircraft can lead to trouble if critical controls move differently. From an aerodynamic design viewpoint, this was a predictable scenario but, evidently it was not considered. It does not seem acceptable to have significant lateral control effects ensue as a result of mismanagement of cowl flaps. This should have been a certification issue.
