C0117/14 - RWY 12/30 CLSD DUE DISABLED ACFT. 15 FEB 07:29 2014 UNTIL 16 FEB 08:00 2014 ESTIMATED. CREATED: 15 FEB 07:30 2014
No METARs are available, the local weather station reported light rain, visibility of 6-7km and nearly calm winds at the time of the occurrence.
The Civil Aviation Authority Philippines (CAAP) released their summary of final report concluding the probable causes of the incident were:
Miscalculation of the remaining runway during 180 degrees turn that resulted on the nosewheel going off the paved portion of the runway end. (Human factor)
- Lack of safety measures on the runway.
The airport runway lacks the necessary safety measures such as turning pads, turning guides to direct the pilots during maneuver.
- The simultaneous task of doing the “before take off checklist” while performing 180 degrees maneuver.
The carrying out of before take off checklist should have been suspended while making a critical maneuvers such as 180 degrees turn for the PIC to concentrate on the ongoing task.
