Why this Recommendation was Developed: link_64Final Report 01/2019
Addressee: Hellenic Civil Aviation Authority (HCAA)
Status: OPEN - Response received awaiting Assessment
Recommendation: PREAMBLE: The investigation revealed that the pilot flying (PF) during the landing phase did not realized in time that the aircraft’s low speed together with the rudder deflection would result in a stall and a loss in control in flight.

SAFETY RECOMMENDATION 2019-02: It is recommended to the Hellenic Civil Aviation Authority (HCAA) to review the educational material in order a student will obtain an ultra-light pilot license as well as students will be adequate trained in order to be fully aware of the conditions and circumstances as to avoid a potential loss in control in flight.

Response: HCAA replies by letter [HCAA /D2/E/29176/26.07.2019] that it accepts Recommendation 2019-02 and will take the following actions:
1. Organize through D2/D department ultralight instructor seminar for analysis and discussion of this and other accidents.
2. A separate chapter will be added to the curriculum of Ultralight Training Organizations on STALLING SPEED rise with the increase of BANK ANGLE.
3. A technical directive will be issued so that all Ultralight Aircraft Operators pass a compulsory 1-hour practical training each year, with an examination, including among other issues some new [briefed to AAIASB] related to Recommendation 2019-02.
[AAIASB will assess the response within the 60-day deadline per EU Regulation: 996/2010]

Recommendation

SR Number:

2019-01 -- Date Issued: 06/06/2019
Why this Recommendation was Developed: link_64Final Report 01/2019
Addressee: European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA)
Status: OPEN - Awaiting Response
Recommendation: PREAMBLE: The investigation revealed that the take-off mass of the aircraft was greater than the maximum take-off mass of 472,5 kg. The payload of the aircraft was 149 kg, which can easily be exceeded by the user of the airplane. The manufacturer of the aircraft, taking into consideration that the users are not always strict with the limit for the maximum take-off mass of 472,5 kg, he revised the aircraft’s speed limit during the base leg of the approach.
During the design of aircrafts in this category, in order to calculate figures regarding the structure and performance, such as stall speed and take-off speed, these figures are calculated based on the maximum take-off mass of 450 kg or 472,5 kg (when the aircraft is equipped with a ballistic parachute) and are entered in the Aircraft Flight Manual.
During flight when the aircraft’s mass exceeds the maximum take-off mass, then the above mentioned speed values are not applicable and they get higher limits.
This can easily lead the aircraft to a stall during the critical phases for take-off and landing and also to a loss in control in flight.

SAFETY RECOMMENDATION 2019-01: It is recommended to European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) to review and revise the maximum take-off mass (MTOM) for aircrafts in this category.
