2 SpiceJet pilots suspended for damaging runway edge lights

Feb 13, 2020 17:06 IST

Aviation regulator DGCA suspended two SpiceJet pilots on Thursday for a period of four-and-half months for damaging the runway edge lights of Mangaluru airport while landing a B737 plane on October 31 last year. PTI quoted a DGCA document as saying, "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". The aircraft was coming from Dubai when the incident occurred. Show cause notices were issued by the DGCA to the pilot-in-command and first officer of the flight demanding explanations but the replies were deemed to be "not satisfactory".
