Circumstances weren’t conducive for touchdown: Civil aviation knowledgeable – india information


Civil aviation knowledgeable Captain Mohan Ranganathan believes that the pilot of the Air India Boeing 737, a Covid-19 evacuation flight from Dubai that crashed on Friday, ought to have diverted to Coimbatore because the situations in Kozhikode weren’t conducive for touchdown.

“The visibility was tremendous,” mentioned Ranganathan. “However as a result of torrential downpour, it was not prudent to land in Kozhikode. The pilot ought to have diverted to Coimbatore.”

Ranganathan, an aviation security guide and a former teacher pilot of the Boeing 737 specialising in moist runway operations, added that he was shocked that aviation regulator DGCA gave permission to the flight to land there.

“The runway just isn’t secure,” mentioned Ranganathan. “From what I’ve heard, not a lot has modified since I used to be there final. It’s lucky {that a} 737 was touchdown and never a large physique flight.”

In line with Ranganathan, he warned authorities a yr after the 2010 Mangalore crash that the Calicut runway was unsafe for touchdown and wanted to be re-evaluated, however his message was ignored.

“It’s a harmful scenario, particularly in moist situations. Runway 10 approaches shouldn’t be permitted in view of the dearth of RESA (runway finish security space) and the terrain past the tip of the runway,” Ranganathan mentioned in his report submitted 17 June 2011.

He was then a member of the operations group of the Civil Aviation Security Advisory Committee (CASAC).

“… despite the hazard if the crew settle for a touchdown in moist and tailwind situations, their idea of ALAR (Method and Touchdown Accident Discount) may be very poor,” he mentioned within the communication.

On Saturday, Ranganathan added {that a} 240m RESA ought to instantly be launched and the runway size needs to be diminished to make operations “secure”.

“There ought to 150m on both aspect to keep away from mishaps,” Ranganathan instructed HT. “However there may be not enough space there. It has at all times been harmful.”
