Human error cited in February crash
MISSTEPS : An initial aviation safety report said that the pilot of TransAsia Airways Flight GE235 shut down the wrong engine when one of the engines flamed out
Taipei Times Excerpt

The pilot of the TransAsia Airways Flight GE235 that crashed into the Keelung River in Taipei on Feb. 4 admitted that he shut down the wrong engine in a conversation recorded by the plane’s cockpit voice recorder, the Aviation Safety Council said yesterday.

Council executive director Thomas Wang (王興中) said that a master warning sounded after the aircraft climbed to 1,200 feet (365.8m). The aircraft’s engine warning display (EWD) then showed a series of steps that the pilot, Liao Chien-tsung (廖建宗), should have taken when the No. 2 engine flamed out after takeoff.

The pilot said that he shut down the No. 1 engine instead.

According to the transcript provided by the council, the pilot said: “Wow, pulled back the wrong side throttle,” about eight seconds before the plane crash.

As to why the pilot turned off the No. 1 engine when the EWD showed that the No. 2 engine was the problem, Wang said that the council would begin an analysis in the next phase of the investigation.

The initial investigation showed that four seconds after the flight began to take off, the copilot, Liu Tse-chung (劉自忠), cried out that the plane’s automatic takeoff power control system (ATPCS) was not armed.

Nevertheless, the pilot answered: “OK continue takeoff.”

At 10:52am, the copilot corrected himself, saying: “Oh, there it is. ATPCS is armed.”

Wang said that the ATPCS is a protection mechanism that increases power to the operating engine and turns off the bleed valve if the system detects that one of the two engines on the aircraft generates torque less than 18.5 percent. The system can also switch the failed engine to autofeather mode and inhibit the operating engine from being feathered, he said.

The feathered failed engine helps reduce drag so that the operating engine can generate sufficient power for the aircraft to continue flying, he added.

Wang said the council had inspected the engines and other devices on the ATR-600 aircraft. While the autofeather unit of the No. 1 engine passed the continuity test, the torque signal transmission of the same unit in the No. 2 engine was unstable during testing.

“The flight data recorder showed that the oil pressure, temperature and fuel flow of the No. 2 engine was normal and the engine was still running. However, the signal was not transmitted to the sensor in a reliable manner and the situation subsequently triggered the sequences of the ATPCS. The system then caused the engine to be feathered, which means that it no longer provided any power to the aircraft,” he said.

Data records also showed that the pilot disengaged the autopilot system at 10:52:41am, when the aircraft was at 1,300 feet.

At 10:52:43am, the pilot said: “I will pull back the throttle of the No. 1 engine,” with the copilot answering: “Wait a second, cross check.”

The copilot answered again at 10:53am, saying: “OK, engine flame out check. Check up-trim, yes. Auto-feather, yes.”

At 10:53:06am, the pilot repeated that he would shut down the No. 1 engine. At the same time, the copilot said that he had confirmed that the No. 2 engine was flamed out.

The condition lever of the No. 1 engine was pushed to the position to shut off the fuel at 10:53:24am, and the engine later went into the feather mode as well, according to the data.

At 10:54:05am, the copilot confirmed that they lost both engines. Though the pilot tried to restart the No. 1 engine, it did not accelerate fast enough to generate sufficient power to keep the plane in the air, the data showed.

The pilot verbally confirmed that he had shut down the wrong engine at 10:54:27am. At 10:54:35am, the aircraft crashed into the Keelung River, killing 43 people onboard.

Assigning blame for compensation
Taipei Times Excerpt

The truth about TransAsia Airways Flight GE235 that crashed into the Keelung River in Taipei on Feb. 4 was revealed this week thanks to the black box and other evidence. At the time of the crash, many hailed the pilot as a hero and even suggested that he be included in the Martyrs’ Shrine. All these conjectures were the result of subjective fantasy. Taiwanese and Taiwan’s media should be more rational: Evidence is the final arbiter.

The crash set off a debate regarding whether Taipei International Airport (Songshan airport) should be relocated. There is no simple answer to that question, but things might become clearer after the completion of Taipei’s MRT metropolitan railway system to Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport. Before that happens, Taipei residents might have to continue to worry about airplanes. After all, there have been many examples of airplanes crashing into buildings, not to mention the noise and air pollution created by aircraft.

According to data on flight security incidents during the past 60 years, 53 percent of all airplane crashes have been due to pilot error, which includes a variety of errors: pure pilot error (32 percent), pilot error related to the weather (16 percent) and pilot error related to mechanical problems (5 percent). Apart from pilot error, 6 percent of the incidents were caused by human error by people other than pilots — air traffic controllers, improper goods storage, impure fuel, inappropriate maintenance — 12 percent were caused by climate factors, 20 percent by mechanical error, 8 percent by destruction — bombs, being shot down, hijackings — and 1 percent were caused by other factors.

Everyone is paying attention to flight safety and the aviation industry is placing great importance on this issue. No one wants a security record like TransAsia Airways and the competent authority must take charge of supervision and instruction. Even in the case of pilot error, it is still necessary to identify the failing link in systemic and security culture. The achievements of modern flight safety can be credited to efforts to improve system and safety transparency.

The aviation industry and aircraft designers have learned that errors always occur when people are involved. This is why it is recognized that pilot error is unavoidable and why it is part of the system to put pilots through regular tests and evaluations, have health checks, see to it that they are not overworked and to prevent error by placing importance on standard operating procedures and complete automation. In other words, airplane crashes are a test of systemic error rather than human error. Looking at the Singapore Airlines (SIA) Flight SQ006 crash at what was then CKS International Airport in Taoyuan in 2000, the District Prosecutors’ Office did not charge the three crew members and the International Federation of Airline Pilot Associations said that if the crew members were charged, they would call on all members to refuse to fly in Taiwanese airspace. This shows that this flight safety culture is deeply ingrained.

EVA Air buys five new freight aircraft from Boeing
22 July 2015
Taipei Times Excerpt

EVA Airways Corp yesterday signed a NT$50 billion (US$1.6 billion) deal with Boeing Co to procure five new freight aircraft.

The Taiwanese carrier is expected to receive the first of five Boeing 777 Freighters in October 2017 and have all five in operation by September 2019, EVA Air chairman Chang Kuo-wei said.

The 777 Freighter uses about 20 percent less fuel than the older Boeing 747-400 cargo aircraft in the companys fleet, Chang said.

He said that it is crucial for the company to modernize its fleet, as the cargo sector is beset by dwindling margins and declining transport volume.

The Boeing 747-400 is no longer the ideal choice, as there is no longer enough demand to fill it to capacity on each flight, Chang said, adding that the 777 Freighters smaller capacity of 85 to 90 tonnes affords much more flexibility.

Proposal that Beijing allow flights to transit in Taiwan still in talks: MAC
Taipei Times with CNA

Taipei’s proposal for Beijing to allow international flights from China to make transit stops in Taiwan remains in limbo as talks are still under way, the Mainland Affairs Council (MAC) said on Sunday.

Asked about the progress of the talks, the council said: “The two sides are still negotiating and communicating with each other actively on the issue,” hoping they can reach a consensus and strike a deal to begin the service as soon as possible.

The remarks cast uncertainty over the implementation of an agreement reached between MAC Minister Andrew Hsia (夏立言) and his Chinese counterpart, Taiwan Affairs Office Minister Zhang Zhijun (張志軍), during their meeting in Kinmen in May that the transit stops in Taiwan would begin in the middle of this year.

Flight rules changing on electronics
Under the new rules, passengers will be able to use their cellphones during take-off and landings as long as the devices are in airplane mode
31 August 2015
Taipei Times Excerpt

As of tomorrow, Taiwanese airlines are to begin implementing new rules on the in-flight use of portable electronic devices, the Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA) said.

The agency has amended the Regulations Restricting Use of Different Kinds of Communication Devices or Other Appliances Disrupting Flight to allow passengers to use cellphones or smartphones during take-off or any other time during the flight as long as they are on airplane mode.

The move follows widespread passenger complaints about the previous rules that all electronic appliances had to be turned off after the doors to the cockpit were closed.

Under the new rules, if a planes pilot gives clearance, passengers can use their portable devices during take-off and landing.

Electronic devices that can be in airplane mode or that can be easily stowed in a cabin seat pocket are allowed to be used throughout the flight, whether domestic or international.

On international flights, oversized devices such as laptops weighing more than 1kg can be used once the plane has reached cruising altitude of more than 10,000ft (3,048m), but because of concerns about fixed cruising altitudes and different processes, use of laptops and other devices that cannot be easily stowed will still be barred on domestic flights, the agency said.

If a plane has the appropriate on-board communication facilities, such as Wi-Fi networks, devices that can receive such signals are also allowed to be used after the on-board systems are turned on, the agency said.
