SpiceJet pilot’s licence suspended for a year over Shirdi runway excursion
The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has suspended the licence of a SpiceJet pilot involved in an incident of runway excursion at Shirdi airport, senior government officials said.
The preliminary investigation carried out by the DGCA observed that safety of passengers and the aircraft, VT-SGJ, was endangered in the incident that took place on April 29. The aircraft touched down late and the unstabilised final approach of the aircraft resulted into runway excursion, the regulator has noted, officials say.
While a showcause notice was issued to the pilot to explain as to why the action should not be taken against him, the regulator has observed that the crew did a long flare and aircraft touched down at approximately 5,300 feet from Runway-9 threshold.
