Questions abound over Penghu crash
PENGHU CONDITIONS : CAA Deputy Director-General Lee Wan-lee said the weather and wind conditions did not exceed that set for ATR72 models
Taipei Times



The crash of TransAsia Airways (復興航空) Flight GE222 outside Magong Airport on Penghu Wednesday evening killed 48 people aboard the plane and injured 10, officials said yesterday.

Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA) Director-General Jean Shen (沈啟) said that rescuers had located 48 bodies at the crash site in Sisi Village (西溪), but many of the bodies were not intact.

As of press time last night, CAA Deputy Director-General Lee Wan-lee (李萬里) said the rescuers have yet to confirm the identities of 17 bodies, including that of the pilot, Lee Yi-liang (李義良).

Amid questions as to why the flight was allowed to depart from Greater Kaohsiung amid inclement weather conditions, and if such a flight had violated regulations, Lee said the weather information at 7pm on Wednesday showed that the wind was blowing southwest, while the flight path was on a north-south route.

Visibility was 1.6km, with the wind blowing at a speed of 20kph and cloud ceiling of 330 feet (100.5m), Lee said.

Data also showed that winds gust were blowing at 38kph and there was a thundershower of medium intensity in the air as well, he said.

Based on the flight standard set for civilian aircraft, ATR72 aircraft are able to take off and land in such weather, he said.

However, an aircraft’s pilot has the right to decide if they want to land in any given situation, Lee said.

“Even if the weather was fine, the captain could still choose not to land the aircraft if he felt there was something strange with the wind and decided to go around instead,” Lee said. “CAA record shows that a Uni Air (立榮航空) flight had landed at the Magong Airport before the TransAsia crash.”

Lee said he would not speculate if the pilot had experienced deteriorated visibility within a very short period of time, adding that Aviation Safety Council (ASC) investigators would be able to determine the cause of the crash after decoding the information recorded in the flight data recorder and cockpit voice recorder.

CAA data showed that Flight GE222 was circling above Penghu for about 30 minutes before it prepared to land following improved visibility.

Air traffic control personnel said they received a request from the pilot to go around at 7:06pm, but they lost track of the aircraft afterward.

The visibility worsened from 1.6km to 0.8km at 7:10pm.

What happened to the pilot within the four-minute interval is considered key to the investigation.

Both of the plane’s “black boxes” were brought back to Taiwan proper yesterday afternoon.

ASC investigators said that the exterior of the cockpit voice recorder was slightly damaged, but they said that the memory of the device should still be intact. The flight data recorder looked relatively undamaged.

ASC Executive Director Thomas Wang (王興中) said the council is would issue a preliminary result of the plane crash investigation within four weeks, adding that a more detailed report could be produced within three to four months.

Casualties caused by the accident ended the best aviation safety record achievement in the past two decades.

Statistics from the CAA showed last month that the average aviation accident rate was 0.17 times per million flight hours, which was better than the global average of 0.32 times per million flight hours.

TransAsia said that each passenger’s family would receive a preliminary compensation of NT$1 million (US$ 33,360). Civil aviation regulations stipulate compensation for each deceased passenger is NT$3 million, and NT$1.5 million for passengers who suffer major injuries.

Lee said these figures do not include any settlements that might be reached in civil court cases.

Man faces fine for trying to open aircraft door

Aviation police arrested a man on Monday night after he allegedly tried to open a cabin door on EVA Air Flight BR-836 shortly after it took off from Macau bound for Kaohsiung International Airport.

The man, surnamed Tai (戴), got up from his seat about 30 minutes after takeoff and walked to one of the plane’s doors and appeared to be trying to open it, officials at the Aviation Police Bureau’s Kaohsiung branch said. He was quickly stopped by flight attendants and other passengers and he was returned to his seat, the officials said.

Tsai was taken to the Aviation Police Bureau office for questioning, where he reportedly told officers that he had taken some drugs in Macau and he had been craving drugs during the flight.

The bureau said Tai did not fight with or yell at the flight attendants, and he did not have any weapons.

He was required to provide a urine sample for testing, it said.

Given that Tai cooperated with bureau officials during questioning and he had not been violent on the plane, the bureau decided that he would be fined for violating the Civil Aviation Act (民用航空法), but his case would not be sent on to the Kaohsiung Prosecutors’ Office. He faces a fine of between NT$10,000 and NT$50,000 for failing to follow aircraft safety instructions.

Chooi steps down as TransAsia president
EARLY RESIGNATION : The president stepped down in what the airline insisted was an arrangement Chooi and the carrier made before the Penghu plane crash

TransAsia Airways Corp (TNA, 復興航空) announced yesterday its president Chooi Yee-choong (徐以聰) had left the firm with an early resignation submitted before the July 23 crash of Flight GE222 on Penghu.

Chooi’s resignation was approved by the carrier’s board of directors on Friday last week, with vice president Fred Wu (吳滬生) appointed as the acting president, the company said in a filing to the Taiwan Stock Exchange.

“He [Chooi] has helped the company fulfill the short-term objective of route expansion and tendered his resignation in early July,” company spokeswoman Christine Tu (涂佩君) said by telephone.

Chooi, who joined the carrier’s management team as chief commercial operator in November 2012, was promoted to company president in March.

His shorter-than-expected term as president raised speculations that there was a connection with the plane crash, but the company denied that.

The incident has also raised concerns over the delayed launch of V Air (威航), TNA’s planned low-cost carrier, which was set to begin operations later this month.

Representatives for V Air said the carrier might be launched in the fourth quarter, and the holdup was mainly due to the lengthy process of filing its application and receiving official permission.

However, the other budget carrier in preparation in Taiwan, Tigerair Taiwan (台灣虎航), yesterday announced the Sept. 26 launch of its first route between Taipei and Singapore.

Tigerair Taiwan, a joint venture between Taiwan’s largest carrier, China Airlines Ltd (CAL, 中華航空), and Tiger Airways Pte of Singapore, has taken delivery of its aircraft, an Airbus SAS 320, and expects to receive the second and the third aircraft by the end of this year.

“Other than the first route to Singapore, the carrier might launch two or three new routes to destinations in Southeast Asia by the end of this year,” chief executive officer Yue Kwan (關栩) told a press conference.

After the company receives a further four A320 series aircraft next year, Tigerair Taiwan is set to launch new routes to destinations in Japan and South Korea, aiming to break even during the second year of operations, Kwan added.

CAA set to discuss rules about outside food aboard flights
8 October 2014
Taipei Times

The Civil Aeronautic Administration (CAA) is scheduled to meet with the Consumer Protection Committee (CPC) of the Executive Yuan next week to discuss whether passengers on budget airlines should be allowed to take their own food aboard.

Statistics from the administration showed that the nation would have 16 low-cost carriers by the end of this year. While the budget airlines attract passengers with inexpensive tickets, passengers need to pay additional fees to check in luggage or for meals.

Consumer complaints have begun to emerge after the nations first low-cost carrier, Tigerair Taiwan, launched flights last month. Passengers complained that the on-board meals are too expensive and that they were not allowed to take their own food onto the flights. They also complained that they were not informed of the airlines regulations banning passengers from consuming food that was not purchased aboard.

The administration said it is meeting with CPC officials next week to discuss ways to require the low-cost carriers to clearly disclose the relevant information on the consumption of outside food during flights. The information must be displayed on the airlines Web sites, it said.

The administration said Tigerair Taiwan, Scoot, Air Asia X, HK Express and Air Asia Berhad all have regulations banning passengers from taking food on board.

Jetstar, Vanilla Air, Peach Aviation and others do not have such regulations.

In response, Tigerair Taiwan said the airline has clearly stated the relevant regulations on its Web site, and its flight attendants only tell the passengers that the airline sells meals on board so they do not have to bring their own food.

It said that passengers bringing their own food will be asked to quickly finish meals to avoid inconveniencing other passengers and they will not be allowed to take strong-smelling food on board.
