Lion Air crash: DGCA advises training for 737 MAX pilots

Boeing 737 MAX pilots to be trained for Lion Air crash-like scenario

Boeing 737 MAX pilots to be trained for Lion Air crash-like scenario

Following the crash of a MAX plane operated by Indonesia's Lion Air in October, the United States watchdog Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Boeing had issued advisories. In the future, simulators will also be required, she said. The crew in that case managed to shut off the system.

A review meeting was held in DGCA on December 3 with the SpiceJet and Jet airways operations and engineering team.

Pilots flying Boeing Co's 737 MAX aircraft in India should be trained on a simulator that replicates the Lion Air crash scenario to the nearest possible extent, India's aviation regulator said in statement on Thursday.

It further advised that verification flight should be conducted after rectification before undertaking any commercial flight if the aircraft had any MCAS-related snag in the flight. These additional safety measures, say officials, have been taken in light of the preliminary probe report of issued recently by Indonesian authorities.

The DGCA has asked airlines to provide detailed technical information and a reporting plan to its crew if they detect a manoeuvring characteristics augmentation system (MCAS) defect.

"Following a competitive public tendering process, the unique lease structure and terms offered to Cayman Airways by ALC, has afforded Cayman Airways the ability to be the first B737-8 MAX operator based in the Caribbean, and we look forward to a strong working relationship with ALC".

The last flight before the crash of Lion Air's Max 8 (registration PK-LQP) was from Bali to Jakarta on Sunday. The aircraft flight maintenance log for this flight reported some malfunctions like its indicated airspeed (IAS) and altitude indicators had "disagree shown after take off".

Referring to a November 7 emergency airworthiness directive issued by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in the wake of the Lion Air crash, the examiner questioned whether the DGCA had reviewed the FAA directive in detail to determine whether it was acceptable to the Indian context. Both the documents address erroneous high angle of attack (AOA) sensor input and corrective action for the same as it has a potential for repeated nose-down trim commands of horizontal stabilizer.

"We know our airplanes are safe", Muilenburg said.
