I hope it makes them safer.
My thoughts remain with all affected in this event.
Defective AOAs may have contributed to the crash at Parpinjon but they were not the main factor..... contrary to the approved acceptance check manual, the pilots were carrying out a low speed stall test at very low altitude.
Even at this altitude, the aircraft could still have regained lift but the pilots reaction was: TOGA and nose-up. This made the stall worse.....
We simulated the situation a few times on the sim and the only way to save the aircraft was TOGA and nose down.... but it takes guts to wait for pull up until the aircraft has regained airspeed..... even on the sim....
God created all men bald:
The ugly ones he covered with hair.
There were many problems with this flight.
I think AOA sensors with water/ice was one.
I also think flights of this nature need great planning and attention for all involved.
I think pilots doing these type of testing's could be more well trained, like test pilot's I think.
Aircraft in normal service is different to aircraft going through the hanger/mods/changing tail colours etc etc.
Again, my thoughts remain with all affected of this sad event.
Recommendations for cleaning and rinsing.
