Aer Arann from Ireland has taken legal proceedings against White Eagle Aviation (WEA) of Poland, alleging that two crewed aircraft provided by the company were defective and that the pilots’ flying raised serious safety concerns.
Aer Arann claims WEA has breached a contract to operate the aircraft in a safe and effective manner and in accordance with rules and regulations governing air travel.
In one incident, Aer Arann alleges a pilot in one of the aircraft went 10 miles wrong when proposing to land in Galway and, in another case, claims a plane had to be diverted to Kerry airport.
The aircraft involved are ATR-42’s SP-KCA and SP-KCN. (ireland.com)
