Alitalia A320 at Budapest on Jul 27th 2013, flight control problems
Last Update: November 22, 2013 / 16:10:42 GMT/Zulu time
The flight was cancelled.
On Jul 30th 2013 the French BEA reported in their weekly bulletin that the crew received "F/CTL STAB JAM" and "F/CTL ELAC 2 PITCH FAULT" messages. Hungary's KBSZ have opened an investigation into the occurrence rated a serious incident.
On Nov 22nd 2013 Hungary's KBSZ reported the aircraft was climbing through about 4000 feet at 210 knots when the crew selected the flaps to 0 and almost immediately afterwards the autopilot disconnected. In sequence following ECAM messages appeared: "F/CTL ELAC 2 PITCH FAULT, AUTO FLT AP OFF, F/CLT ELAC 1 PITHC FAULT, F/CTL ALTN LAW, F/CTL STABILIZER JAM". The crew levelled off at 6000 feet, entered a hold and worked the checklists identifying the primary failure was F/CTL STABILIZER JAM. The crew subsequently requested the longest runway available and landed on Budapest's runway 13L.
