Smartwings QS-1125

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki


On 22 August 2019 a Smartwings QS-1125 flight from Samos, Greece to Prague, Czech Republic suffered a human factors safety incident. The Boeing 737-800 (OK-TVO) with 170 passengers on board was at 36,000 feet over the Aegean Sea about 100 nm northeast of Athens when it had an engine failure. The crew descended to 24,000 without informing Air Traffic Control of the emergency and continued without clearance at that level. They made an emergency landing without any injuries at their destination about 2 hours and 20 minutes after engine failure.

In July 2020, the Czech Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) released the final report of the Air Accidents Investigation Institute (AAII, in Czech ÚZPLN - Ústav pro odborné zjišťování příčin leteckých nehod). The report blamed the captain for failing to follow mandatory procedures, including the requirement to land at the nearest possible diversion airport after an engine failure.[1][2] The report recommended a psychological examination of the captain at the Institute of Aviation Medicine in Prague. As of July 2020 the airline had demoted captain Pavel Veselý from his post as chief pilot in charge of flight operations. He continues to pilot Smartwings flights.[3] The Prague Police opened an investigation on suspicion of endangering the public due to negligence.[4][1]
