Unsafe Landing At Mangalore International Airport: Two Pilots Of Spice Jet Suspended

February 14:  Aviation regulator DGCA has suspended two SpiceJet pilots on Thursday for a period of four-and-half months for damaging the runway edge lights of Mangalore International airport while landing a B 737 plane coming from Dubai on October 31 last year.
According to an official document of the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), investigation has revealed that the aircraft touched down left of the centreline and deviated further to the left and the delayed corrective input by the crew led to the damage to three runway edge lights.
It also noted that the period of suspension would be counted from the date of the incident. Show cause notices were issued by the DGCA to the pilot-in-command and first officer of the flight demanding explanation on the “lapses”. The reply sent by both the pilots were deemed to be “not satisfactory” and therefore, the regulator suspended the license held by them for a period of four-and-half months, the document stated.
