First A330 Landing Deceleration Computer Fails

According to the latest FAA announcement from the Civil Aviation Administration, the national airline A330 aircraft encountered a failure of the main flight control computer No. 1/2/3 system and the failure of automatic braking and thrust reverser during the landing stage of the wet skid runway. This is also the first time the Airbus A330 aircraft has occurred in the world. During the deceleration process, all three computers failed.

The announcement pointed out that during the landing phase of the wet slippery runway in rainy days, the main wheel has touched the ground and the reverse thrust is ready to be activated. The pilot found that the three systems of the main computer of the flight control, the engine reverse thrust system, the automatic brake system and the speed brake are all The failure caused the aircraft to decelerate abnormally, and then decelerated with manual brakes. The aircraft finally stopped safely before the end of the runway. For safety reasons, the driver requested the trailer to leave the runway.

According to news the incident was a China Airlines CI202 Pudong Feisong flight on June 14th, the aircraft registration number was B-18302, the Airbus A330 model, more than 80 people on board, malfunctioned during landing deceleration, and finally stopped at the distance from the runway The end is only 9.1 meters away. At 5:49 p.m. that day, the tower informed the flight that it could not move, the runway was suspended, and a trailer was sent to drag the plane back to the apron. The runway resumed normal takeoff and landing at 6:10 pm.

The Civil Aviation Administration said that it had taken out the flight recorder (black box) to analyze the problem at the Airbus headquarters in France. The other party expected to reply in mid-July. I hope to clarify the reasons and take preventive measures. If this is the first case in the world, I also hope that Airbus can explain it in the first place..

An unnamed aviation expert said that since it was less than ten meters away from the end of the runway, if it was not appropriate for the pilot to operate, the current automatic driving system was changed to manual. The aircraft might be unable to stop running out of the runway and was eventually blocked by EMAS (engineering materials Machine system, commonly known as tofu block). Because of the EMAS provided by the loose machine, the strength is no longer so as to break through the surrounding wall, then to the Tayou Road, and finally hit the embankment.

Evergreen said that no similar situation had occurred before. After learning of this case, it immediately asked Airbus to ask for the necessary actions as soon as possible and provide the A330 fleet flight crew to know. After receiving the Fei’an announcement from the Civil Aviation Administration, after reviewing the current operational policies and procedures, they are in line with the recommendations of the Fei’an announcement.

An Airbus spokesman said that he had been informed of the incident and provided the necessary technical support to relevant units.
