A Dniproavia Embraer ERJ-145 on behalf of Aerosvit, registration UR-DNF performing flight VV-53 from Kiev to Ivano-Frankovsk (Ukraine), was accelerating the engines for takeoff from Kiev when the crew received a park brake and takeoff configuration alert, rejected takeoff and returned to the apron.

A subsequent test of the takeoff configuration alert revealed that the takeoff configuration was not sensed correctly with the park brakes seen set although not set. The commander taxied the aircraft briefly activating and releasing the brakes and repeated the test, however again received the alert regarding brakes.

Ukraine's Ministry of Transport reported in their monthly bulletin that the examination subsequently found oxidation at a pressure sensor which led to the contacts remaining closed signalling incorrect brake configuration for takeoff.
