Pilot pay not based on fuel use, airline experts say
Shanghai Daily
2011-9-7

LOCAL experts and airline officials yesterday refuted an accusation that many private carriers link fuel consumption to pilot pay, an allegation that came in the wake of a Juneyao Airlines pilot refusing to give way to a Qatar Airways plane running out of fuel last month.

The South Korean pilot refused to give way to the Qatari flight from Doha as both planes waited to land at Shanghai's Hongqiao Inter-national Airport on August 13.

China's civil aviation regulator revoked the license of the pilot.

"The Juneyao pilot had to hover over the airport and consume more fuel if agreed to give way, but the fuel consumption will influence the pilot's payment," Ke Yubao, deputy secretary general of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association of China, told the China Economic Weekly yesterday.

The airlines also evaluate pilots by the on-schedule rate, which could also be a concern to the Juneyao pilot at that time, the weekly quoted an insider who declined to be named.

But local experts and officials said the speculations were "groundless."

"Pilots can decide neither the fuel consumption nor the on-schedule rate, because the flying route and time are precisely decided beforehand," Zhou Jisheng, a civil aviation researcher and former deputy designer of China's first domestically developed jet, the ARJ-21, told Shanghai Daily.

Even if the pilots had to wait before landing, the planes' hovering route and time were also decided by the air regulators, so it was impossible for airlines to link the fuel with pilots' salaries, Zhou said.

Apart from adequate fuel for the voyage, each aircraft must prepare additional fuel for at least 45 minutes as reserve, according to rules, but in most circumstances airliners prepare more, he said.

Zhang Wuan, spokesman of the Shanghai-based Spring Airlines, also said it was impossible for the pilot to refuse to give way only for saving fuel.

Juneyao Airlines apologized after the punishment from China's civil aviation regulator, but declined to comment on the accusation.

The lack of more than two airports in Shanghai could be blamed more for the incident, said Fu Shan, an aeronautics professor at Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

The city has two major airports - the Pudong International Airport and the Hongqiao International Airport.

I guess Mahan Air doesn't have to worry about fuel when they land at PVG.

There's a pilot shortage in China and since the international language of communications for air traffic is English, it's OK for non-Chinese-speaking pilots to operate in China. I recall one of the new private carriers had initially hired a European pilot when they first launched operations (believe it was OK Airways or something along those lines).

Well, with the new HSR connecting the country, air travel growth will likely slow. Much of the masses still cannot afford to fly.

Private jet facility at Hongqiao

By Zha Minjie | 2011-11-9 |


The business aviation base at Hongqiao International Airport in Shanghai has been licensed as the first facility on China's mainland to repair and maintain private aircraft. It has an annual capacity of 40-plus jets.

THE business aviation base at Hongqiao International Airport in Shanghai has been licensed as the first "4S store for private jets" on China's mainland, with an annual capacity of doing maintenance for 40-plus jets.

The license enables the Hongqiao base to conduct repair and maintenance work on various kinds of private aircraft.

"It can save large costs for the jets," said Jing Yiming, president of Shanghai Hawker Pacific Aviation Service Center in Hongqiao. Take the Hawk-4000 private jet, Jing said. It had to be flown to Singapore for repair in the past, a journey taking five hours. Now the plane can land in Hongqiao to save time and cost.

Projected demand is strong enough that plans are being made to build the city's second such facility at Pudong International Airport, said Jing.

Jing said he expected "the potential demand is huge around the Yangtze Delta region" and Shanghai "shall catch this opportunity." The gradual opening of lower air spaces will also help the industry grow, said the airport operator.

Shanghai has seen more business trips and a rising number of private aircraft in recent years. The city's two civil airports handled 2,900 movements of business aircraft this year so far, while the market demand is expected to surpass 3,200 movements, about one third of the country's total.

The Hongqiao base, opened in March last year, has a terminal, a 4,000-square-meter hangar, a 2,000-square-meter maintenance center, and three gate positions for private aircraft.

Pudong airport gets nod for 2 new runways

By Yang Jian | 2011-12-7

Shanghai Pudong International Airport has won government approval to build two more runaways at a cost of 7.2 billion yuan (US$1.1 billion), China's civil aviation regulator said yesterday.

The fourth and fifth runways for the airport, operated by Shanghai International Airport Co Ltd, will cost 2.6 billion yuan and 4.7 billion yuan each, the Civil Aviation Administration of China said on its Website.

The new runaways will enable the world's third busiest air hub by passenger volume to handle 650,000 flights a year by 2020.

The National Development and Reform Commission, China's top economic planning body, approved the plan in late November, the regulator said.

The fourth runaway, alongside the second runaway, will be 3,800 meters long and capable of serving the world's largest plane, Airbus 380, the regulator said.

A new control tower and a new air traffic control building will be built along with the 3,400-meter fifth runaway.

The country's overall passenger traffic is likely to reach 450 million by 2015, CAAC Director Li Jiaxiang said in a statement in March. Last year, the nation's air travelers totaled 267 million.

Cathay Pacific flight evacuated in fire scare

By Yang Jian | 2011-12-9


A Cathay Pacific Airway's passenger plane from Shanghai to Hong Kong caught fire before taking off at around 10am today at the Pudong International Airport with all passengers onboard evacuated during the emergency. -- Gao Zheng

A CATHAY Pacific Airway's passenger plane from Shanghai to Hong Kong caught fire before taking off at around 10am today at the Pudong International Airport with all passengers onboard evacuated during the emergency.

Most passengers onboard the KA5365 flight were safe, except one passenger who was injured and has been sent to hospital. Several others were slightly injured while escaping from the plane, according to passengers onboard.

Four fire trucks have been dispatched onto the scene, the passengers said.

The Boeing 747 plane was due to take off at 9:45am and arrive in Hong Kong at 12:25pm, but thick smoke suddenly appeared in the cabin along with an overwhelming smell when the plane was ready to take off, passengers said on their Sina.com microblogs.

The airport has closed part of the runway.

The plane belonging to the Hong Kong-based airliner took its maiden voyage in 1992 and has been in service for more than 19 years.

The cause of the fire was still unclear.

Cabin smoke forces plane's evacuation

By Yang Jian | 2011-12-10


Some 370 passengers and crew were evacuated from a Cathay Pacific flight waiting to take off from Shanghai's Pudong International Airport yesterday after thick smoke came into the cabin. Six passengers and two crew members were hurt as they escaped the Boeing 747 jumbo jet, bound for Hong Kong, by emergency chutes. No one was badly injured. Four fire trucks were sent to the scene but no blaze was found on the plane, passengers said. The East China Regional Administration under the Civil Aviation Administration of China and the airline said they were investigating the cause of the smoke. Cathay Pacific ranks as the world's second most profitable airline as measured by net profit and is regularly voted one of the world's best airlines.

SIX passengers and two crew members were injured during an evacuation after thick smoke appeared in the cabin of a Cathay Pacific Airway's jumbo jet at Shanghai's Pudong International Airport yesterday morning as it taxied for takeoff to Hong Kong.

All 351 passengers and 19 crew members onboard the Boeing 747 were evacuated safely about 10:40am via emergency slide, except the eight who were sent to hospitals, the East China Regional Administration under the Civil Aviation Administration of China said on its website.

Four fire trucks were sent to the scene but no blaze was found on the plane, passengers said. The administration and the airline said they were investigating the cause of the smoke. A report from the Xinhua news agency cited an equipment problem.

The injured, including an 82-year-old man suffering a fractured left ankle, were sent to the Shanghai Pudong New Area People's Hospital. Five victims had slight soft tissue injures and bruises and had left the hospital by 4pm, a hospital doctor said. One patient remained in the hospital for observation and was in stable condition. The other two, both suffering leg fractures, including the 82-year-old, were later transferred to the No.6 People's Hospital and Ruijin Hospital for further treatment.

"I was bumped by another passenger while sliding down from the plane. The passengers were anxious so we pushed with each other," said one victim surnamed Hua.

"The victims were injured while escaping from the slide of the plane and none of them suffered from burns," a doctor said.

Senior Cathay Pacific officials apologized to passengers in a press conference in Hong Kong. The airline agreed to fly the remaining passengers to their destination on other flights and promised to meet other requests from the passengers.

The plane, Flight CX365, was due to take off at 9:45am and arrive in Hong Kong at 12:25pm, but as it was taxiing, thick smoke suddenly appeared in the cabin along with an overwhelming smell, passengers said.

"Passengers began unlocking safety belts, standing up and asking to get out after some shouted 'fire' and choking smoke filled the cabin immediately," said a passenger surnamed Wang.

The crew members asked the passengers to wait in their seats and calm down but the strong smoke made some people unable to open eyes, Wang said.

The airline said the captain quickly ordered the evacuation once he established there was smoke in the cabin.

"The crew members asked us not to take luggage while evacuating, and many passengers were too hurried to take their coats, so many of us felt freezing cold when waiting on the runway," said Huang Huang, an interior designer who was on the plane.

The airport sent two shuttle buses to take passengers to the airport terminal.

The airport police checked with passengers who had sat between rows 30 and 33, where passengers said the smoke initially came out, to see if any were carrying flammable materials, said a passenger surnamed Xu.

Airport police declined to give any details about their probe.

The airport closed the runway, delaying 105 flights. The runway was reopened at 2:40pm and flight schedules returned largely to normal, the airports authority reported.
