The company claims that they can only be made by official investigating authorities.
The report of the Federal Air Transport Agency, on the basis of which the media made conclusions about the violation of instructions by the SSJ100 pilots of flight SU1492, in fact does not contain information about the crew’s mistakes, said Aeroflot. Previously reported by RIA “News”.
According to the agency, “according to the document, the crew did not release spoilers, contrary to the instructions.” According to the company, their release was not possible.
The flaps were in a position consistent with the landing procedure and in accordance with the existing system failure. In addition, according to the procedure, the reverse is switched on first, and then on a steady run along the runway, spoilers are produced. Therefore, in view of the absence of a stable path, the release of the interceptors was impossible.
It is necessary to add that the requirements for airworthiness standards for certification of airplanes are designed in such a way as to prevent the situation from deteriorating to catastrophic in any event.
