United Airlines incident was occurred because of human error

United Airlines plane landing incident on April 4 in New Orleans get a little bright spot. Although, the incident did not take casualties and wounded, it is getting serious attention of the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB). The incidence of Airbus A320 emergency landing due to pilot did not perform the SOP after hearing the fire warning so as not to accidentally disable critical electrical system in aircraft. In addition, pilots are also difficult to restore power to several devices so that the landings more difficult.

The National Transportation Safety Board found no signs of fire or smoke on United Airlines plane. According to them, the fire warning that was heard by the pilot because there was the possibility of damaged fire sensors.

As reported earlier, a Flight 497 of an Airbus A320 of United Airlines to San Francisco was about to experience problems after takeoff. Pilots provide emergency warning due to hear the fire warning at an altitude of 4000 feet. This is forcing the pilot to make an emergency landing. The crew of United Airlines have trouble to restore power while trying to make an emergency landing. Apparently, when hearing a fire warning, pilots use a “checklist for the Avionics electronics smoke-warning system” message. It turned out to trigger the shutting down of some of the airplane’s electrical systems.

Meanwhile, the United Airlines has not commented on the findings of the National Transportation Safety Board into the incident in New Orleans. “We are conducting our own internal reviews,” said a spokeswoman for United Airlines. “Any discussion of Preliminary Findings would be speculative,” she added.
