Aeroméxico aircraft crash: the cause was a pilots error
Situation has not been well managed and understood -ATTACHMENT
To cause the accident -miraculously without victims- of the aircraft Embraer ERJ-190 -registration XA-GAL- of Aeroméxico at Durango airport, which ended off-piste during take-off, was a cause of two events: inexperience of pilot and co-driver and the phenomenon of wind shear due to the strong perturbation that lashed the area. The investigation carried out by the Mexican Flight Safety Agency has therefore brought to light what had been suspected since the first moments, when it was pointed out that the Embraer commander had given way to a young and inexperienced pilot of the same company, which was travelling to the capital on that flight. Moreover, the same first officer of the plane was not authorized and qualified for training, so much so that from cabin registrations it emerged that he gave incorrect indications.
This led to not detecting changes in the relative speed indicator on the PFD (Primary Flight Display) while the ERJ-190 was in the run-off position, which would not have been performed following the operational procedures set forth in the flight operations manual. in the case of wind shear conditions. The sudden and variable wind currents in terms of intensity and direction, however, have not been reported correctly and consistently by the air traffic controllers at Durango airport, to whom a co-responsibility in the accident is charged.
