Any news? This happened almost 3 months ago and still don't have information about why the plane's systems were made unoperative. Only the lightning strike thing, but without details.Jump to post

Bjorn of Leeham has an analysis which he guesses that the bad landing was caused by a pilot induced oscillation partly because the crew were inexperienced with flying the plane when in Direct Law. https://leehamnews.com/2019/05/10/bjorns-corner-aeroflot-ssj100-crash-at-moscow-sheremetyevo-airport/ ...Jump to post
Did they miss that the plane went into direct law due to widespread sensor failure and relied on the protections that were no longer available for smooth landing? That would be one massive pilot error. Did perhaps they not train for flying under a direct law?? (AFAIK for Airbus planes, this is trai...Jump to post
A rumour is circulating that Aeroflot cut back on "direct law" pilot practice recently on SSJ-100 fleet. Pilots get minimum mandatory simulator training every six months, and are banned from practicing it in-flight. Take it for what it's worth. I hope that's not the case. Nobody can be of...Jump to post
The pilots shouldn't be guessing and evaluating what 'law' they are in, especially in an emergency. We have too much automation in airplanes, and it's killing us. I've been following very carefully all this forum's post and, not being a pilot but a very dedicated aircraft fan and agreeing with Vars...Jump to post
