AAIB issues safety recommendation on Do-238 beta range selection problem
21 August 2006

The U.K. AAIB issued a recommendation to the type certificate holder for the Dornier 328 aircraft. It advises operators to provide training for pilots in dealing with occasions when power levers cannot be selected to beta range and hence cannot enter the reverse range after landing. This follows an over-run, by over 300 metres, during a landing at Aberdeen on 22 June 2006, which has been found to have similarities to a fatal over-run accident, of another example of the type, at Genoa Italy in 1999.
