There were no injuries, the aircraft sustained minor if any damage.

- Crew did not aware of NTC (Notes To Crew)

- Nose wheel landing gear veered to the left upon contact with the runway.

The crew reported that the flight was normal until touchdown. When the nose gear touched down the aircraft veered to the left, even maximum right rudder could not stop the aircraft veering left, asymmetric power did not stop, then the crew realized the nose wheel steering tiller was fully deflected to the left, at that time the aircraft already went off the runway onto the grass.

An engineering examination did not find any fault with the nose wheel steering.
