Mon, Dec 12, 2011 NTSB Forwards Recommendations On Tailwind Landings To FAA

Enviado há
 
The NTSB has issued a series of safety recommendations to the FAA in response to an incident in which an American Airlines B737 overran the end of the runway on landing in Kingston, Jamaica in December 2009. The aircraft landed approximately 4,000 feet down the 8,911-foot-long, wet runway with a 14-knot tailwind component and was unable to stop on the remaining runway length (www.aero-news.net) Mais...

you are either there or not. to land close to halfway down a runway, knowing you have a tailwind, in those conditions, is ludicrous. that man needs further traing in the worst way or just a good dose of common sense. that being said, not sure what the parameters are but it kinda looks like at some point, the tower would have changed the runway if the tw was that strong

Agreed I mean I learned that on my 3rd lesson never to land halfway down a runway with tailwinds (unless your in a 150 then that's a different story) and also with the runway being wet in the first place you would think that the pilots would know better. Unfortunately common sense was clearly not with them and this happened.

Per www.b737.org.uk:
Max takeoff / landing tailwind component: 10kts (May be 15kts as customer option)
No tailwind component allowed on contaminated runways.

So AA must have the 15kt option, and a wet runway isn't contaminated? Also isn't an approach that will result in a touchdown outside the touchdown zone immediate grounds for a Go-Around at most if not all airlines? Landing with 14kts on the tail on a wet runway...very likely wasn't the wisest decision those pilots made that day...

And how much was left to land on ? Time for the flight crew to go find another job if thats the best they can do.

If you are an inexperienced pilot, you say "hell no". If you are an experienced pilot, you say "hell no". If you are an experienced pilot with a major airline pressuring you to land on time and avoid delays, you say "uhh... ya, I can do it. I have 6000+ hrs flying everything from Cessna 150's to 757's. I've done Los Angeles to Hong Kong, I've done Argentina to New York, I've done Texas to Oklahoma. I've had an engine failure mid-flight, I had an engine failure on take off, I've landed at the minimums countless times, yeah, I'll get her down, business as usual...

Charles, unfortunately, you are so correct.

And the rest of the story is, when all turns out well, just another day, but when the results are as here, "WHERE DID YOU LEARN TO FLY? At the best, it's a reprimand and more training, at worst, you're fired.

Wonder why they have had engine failures mid-flight and on takeoff. Like you said that happens when under pressure from a cost cutting airline.

Bottom line.....Poor judgement..decision making. There were two pilots up there. What the hell were they thinking!

The monday morning quarter backing after something like this is always entertaining. Lots of experts out there.

Bottom line.....poor judgement....obviously! Nobody said anything about being an expert....chill out! This is just a forum of opinions and comments, not to be construed As a cause. Plus it's intertaining! Communication, that's all.

Being an expert was a rhetorical comment. This is a forum of opinions and comments and I made mine. Chill out.

Got to agree. We have all been there. It ain't like he was in a new place. With a 14kt tailwind, anything can bite you in the butt.His only mistake was not throwing the coal to it and going around and we all know there can be 9 million reasons for that.

Wayne, well said. I agree. Pilots must be the Master of the machine! That machine will do whatever you tell it to do......right or wrong......a man has got to know his limitations!!
HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO EVERYONE OUT THERE!! :)

Ouch! Saving five minutes by going around, in hindsight, sure seems like a better option. curious how many times that crew, and others, successfully pulled It Off without incident.
