Delta Private Jets...aborts takeoff...catches fire....

Thu Aug 22, 2019 1:59 am

It appears a Cessna Citation 560 operating for Delta Private Jets aborted its takeoff at Oroville CA and caught fire. 8 passengers and 2 crew escaped the aircraft which became fully engulfed in fire. Sound familiar??? Yes I know the other was landing..

4800 flights per day, one of the best safety record in the history of the industry, and they haven’t had a fatality on a DL operated airplane since 1996 but yeah, “the aviation Gods have turned on DL?” Why? Because a wholly owned sub had a runway excursion?

Looks like one thrust reverser is still active after the overrun while the other is stowed. I don't know a ton about the Cessna Citation series so I am not sure how it would be to counter it but having asymmetrical reverse thrust would not be a fun time on a lot of airplanes.

DPJ is a completely separate Part 135 charter operation that has absolutely nothing in common with Delta Air Lines except being owned by the same group and is crewed by a completely separate group of pilots from Delta mainline.

When you buy a Mainline ticket flown by a Regional, the Mainline is still responsible in the first place; then, it is their choice and responsibility to go back to the Regional for compensation.

For BizAv people, DPJ is the longest continuous holder of an ARG/US Platinum rating in Part 135 ops. I don’t imagine they will qualify for the rating going forward based on this incident. Hate to see it happen to anyone, but especially an operator with the highest safety rating attainable.

No, they're not, but the OP failed to provide context. How many incidents per month do corporate jets see worldwide?

Unless DPJ is flown by DL mainline pilots (and we know they're not) and maintained by DL mechanics (?) this example is meaningless with regard to DL safety culture and outcomes.

Delta is a lot more than just Delta mainline, and seeing as DPJ is 100% owned by Delta, it is absolutely a part of their brand and culture, safety and otherwise. If you open up Sky magazine, the ads are right there... and so is the widget.

True, but DPJ became a wholly owned subsidiary because they bought ComAir and they owned what became DPJ.

Just to clarify, the aircraft involved wasn't a Cessna Citation 560, but a Cessna Citation Excel (N91GY - 2003 build).

Glad everyone made it out safely.

The plane had a SDR filed on Jun 19, 2019 for stuck pitch trim problem causing the crew force the controls in pitch. Crew diverted, corrosion found and repaired. Might be related.

According to the TCDS the Citation Excel is designated the CE-560XL starting with serial 560-5001

Thrust reversers.

So... in less than one month, four Cessna Citation crashes have occurred. That’s like having a 737NG crash every week (except worse, because Cessna Citations do not fly nearly as often as a 737NG).
So... when will the Northwest DC-9s be retired?

Colgan Flight 3407 was marketed as Continental Connection Flight 3407; both airlines were sued and both airlines reach a settlement with the families of the victims.

Sorry for the following rant :
I understand fully regional vs mainline as I've followed this site and I've researched everything myself.
There are no regionals especially when an aircraft is in full Delta livery with only Delta connection added to the titles and in very small print
Operated by Skywest.

It doesn't matter a company sells a ticket the airline is responsible for any and everything that happens with that flight adding
Connection, express, or eagle to the titles do not exonerate the airline from delays, or any incident on board that A/C.
Ex: United took full responsibility for the Dr Dao incident, when they could have very easily blamed Republic Airlines for that incident.

Please excuse my grammar and punctuation as I'm getting ready for work.

I thought ARG/US was an insurance qualification? I didn't realize the NTSB was giving out safety ratings like the NHTSB does with car crash testing (and Consumer Reports). It doesn't change the fact that literally anyone who can pass a checkride and get hours can fly for an ARG/US qualified company. You can get lots of training, lots of 'experience', but no education in aviation.

Depending on damages, it 's very possible crew was commanding things from the front end, that didn't happen in the back end ...

The AOC is only one element - relating to operational responsibility for the flight of the aircraft itself. That doesn't make it independent of Delta (the parent corp) in terms of commercial responsibility, legal liability, party to a contract, and whatever else may be in play without knowing the precise details of the corporate relationship between Delta and any of its subsidiaries, including this one - Delta Private Jets.

This ongoing attempt to draw a complete distinction because of the AOC is quite simply in error.

Yes, ARG/US has nothing todo with the NTSB. It’s an audit program for charter operators and insurers.

Lots of owner/operator Citations, lots of low experience pilots; both types in their first jet. Many Citation accidents are high energy approaches with resulting overruns; hypoxia accidents, landing accidents not vastly different from a private pilot trying to “spike” it after a bounce or high flare. Lastly, a Citation is easily the easiest, most forgiving jet anyone can fly—it can just barely kill you.

Apparently there were control issues and the pilots performed a rejected TO at or around V1.

The runway used to have an overrun stretch, but not anymore.

The XL has a unique two-position stab that has to be positioned correctly for the flap setting. If incorrect for take-off flaps, it might not be possible to rotate. The SDR was related to this stab positioning, as I understand.

And one can use their jet-card funds on commercial DL as well, with a dedicated (and beyond amazing) booking team, etc.


This. Completely agree.


Don’t members get automatic DL Diamond status?


Yep. And for multiple years as well, since the contract bridges over 2 or even 3 calendar years.

Getting back on topic, does anyone else besides me find it odd that the pilot did not cut off engine power before evacuating the aircraft?


Thrust reversers.

So... in less than one month, four Cessna Citation crashes have occurred. That’s like having a 737NG crash every week (except worse, because Cessna Citations do not fly nearly as often as a 737NG).


Lots of owner/operator Citations, lots of low experience pilots; both types in their first jet. Many Citation accidents are high energy approaches with resulting overruns; hypoxia accidents, landing accidents not vastly different from a private pilot trying to “spike” it after a bounce or high flare. Lastly, a Citation is easily the easiest, most forgiving jet anyone can fly—it can just barely kill you.

They are forgiving, but not always easy. Citations have really high power to weight ratios. Down low and on departure it's easy for experienced pilots to get behind the airplane. I flew the 525 series for 3 years and it was always a cold bath adrenaline rush on a cool 5am departure. Transport category jets aren't as much of a handful, but do have more complicated systems.

I understand that, 2,500 hours in Citations, 4,000 in the CL-350 and Globals, the C-5 was certainly complicated, I have a handle on transport category planes. I’ll still say Citations are the easiest, forgiving bizjets. Straight wing, simple systems, great visibility make it.

I fly DPJ and and this incident wouldn't even enter into my mind-- not even in the slightest way.


How is the customer experience?

Absolutely exceptional.

Beyond the Jet Card, This is a perk for the .01% of top Delta flyers and Corp Contract decision makers.
