I am presenting new facts on the cause of the aircraft stall, leading to the accident.
At 1000ft where the crew has to take a decision, what if the default mode is to call for a go-around and if parameters meet the safe criteria, the crew continue to land? Will this be a safer option than the current method which is the reverse of this?
Background Startle and surprise are often cited as potentially contributing factors to aircraft incidents due to their possible negative effects on flight …
The root cause of this event was the initial difficulty to control the aircraft laterally due to the rapid asymmetric thrust increase at low speed. We will analyse this phenomenon in the following paragraphs and explain how the pilots can ensure a symmetric thrust increases to ease the lateral control of the aircraft in the early takeoff roll.
French (BEA) study on approach and go-around reveals that many pilot monitoring (PM’s) do not know where and when to look during a go-around.
How can a combination of surprise event, visual illusion and cognitive lockup lead to a heavy landing? Fog creates visual illusion. Other factors like tight coupling of events and cognitive lockup can lead to incidents.
