- British Aerospace BA32 CFIT On Approach
- The US NTSB determined that the probable cause of the accident was the pilots’ failure to follow established procedures and properly conduct a non precision instrument approach at night in IMC, including their descent below the minimum descent altitude (MDA) before required visual cues were available (which continued unmoderated until the airplane struck the trees) and their failure to adhere to the established division of duties between the flying and nonflying (monitoring) pilot.
- British Aerospace JS31 CFIT
- This report explains the accident involving Corporate Airlines flight 5966, a BAE Systems BAE-J3201, N875JX, that crashed short of the runway on approach to land at Kirksville Regional Airport, Kirksville, Missouri (USA). Safety issues in this report focus on operational and human factors issues, including the pilots’ professionalism and sterile cockpit procedures, nonprecision instrument approach procedures, flight and duty time regulations, fatigue, and flight data/image recorder requirements.
- British Aerospace JS31 Inadequate Fuel Supply Leads To Engine Flameouts
- The crew of the chartered Jetstream 31 conducted a missed approach because of weather conditions and was attempting another approach when a loss of power occurred in both turboprop engines. The report said that fuel exhaustion and fuel starvation were among the causes of the approach-and-landing accident.
- British Aerospace RJ100 CFIT during Non Precision Approach
- The flight crew did not have visual contact with the runway or with the approach lights when they continued descent below the published minimum descent altitude. The airplane struck terrain soon after the crew began a missed approach.
- British Aerospace RJ100 Engine Failure During Descent
- During the descent into Edinburgh, smoke began to fill the flight deck. The No. 2 engine was identified as defective and was shut down.
- British Aerospace RJ100 Hypoxia
- On 22 March 2007 when limbing out of Stockholm (Sweden), the crew of an Avro RJ100 failed to notice that the aircraft was not pressurized until cabin crew advised them of automatic cabin oxygen mask deployment.
- British Aerospace RJ100 Tailpipe Fire On Start up
- Prior to starting the second engine on an aircraft with an unserviceable APU, the engine RPM was not increased on the operating engine, as required. Once the start was initiated, the increased load on the operating generator resulted in the operating engine going into a sub-idle condition. The engine was then over-fuelled and the result was a jet-pipe fire, which was reported to the flight crew by a ground handler...
