Last Update: February 12, 2021 / 19:02:04 GMT/Zulu time
The Novourengoy Transport Prosecution Office reported the aircraft diverted to St. Petersburg due to technical reasons, the aircraft landed in normal mode. A safety check has been initiated.
Rosaviatsia reported the crew declared emergency and reported they had lost all airspeed information and assumed the pitot probes had been frozen over. They were tracking their speed (over ground) with the GPS only. They decided to return to Domodedovo and on subsequent recommendation by their dispatcher decided to divert to St. Petersburg, ATC agreed to provide the shortest route to St. Petersburg and a visual approach into St. Petersburg.
On Feb 12th 2021 Rosaviatsia reported that both captain and first officer lost their speed indications on the primary flight displays associated with the autopilot disconnecting. The commander decided to divert to St. Petersburg where the aircraft landed safely. Both ADR1 and ADR2 suffered the loss of total pressure due to corrosion on the contacts of the ADM-L and ADM-R block plugs. Rosaviatsia issued the recommendation to perform functional and accuracy tests of the ADMs with pitot and static test sets at least at intervals of 48 months (4 years).
