Azul A20N at Cuiaba on Nov 25th 2021, rejected takeoff due to hydraulic fault and evacuated
Last Update: December 16, 2021 / 19:03:14 GMT/Zulu time
The airline reported the aircraft suffered a mechanical malfunction prompting the crew to reject takeoff.
The Aviation Herald received information that a passenger mistaking the flash of the red rotating beacon light as fire shouted "Fire!", opened an emergency exit and evacuated via the slide followed by other passengers. However, as the engines had not yet been shut down, the slide was blown away and passengers jumped rather than slid down. The flight crew subsequently instructed all emergency exits to be opened and an orderly evacuation.
On Dec 2nd 2021 Brazil's CENIPA reported during the takeoff roll the alarm panel displayed a message related to the hydraulic system. The crew rejected takeoff still at low speed. After the aircraft stopped on the runway an evacuation occurred without the commander's command. One passenger sustained a serious injury. No investigation was opened.
On Dec 16th 2021 Brazil's CENIPA had changed their initial information now stating, an investigation into the accident has been opened and is now in progress.
