Boeing Aircraft Corporation issued a cautionary memo after the failure of one of the five altimeters (one of two radio altimeters) on board the Turkish Air 737-800 failed. As reported in an earlier article the known failure caused the automated systems to malfunction.
“(CNN) — Boeing is asking pilots who fly its 737 jets to pay careful attention to flight instruments after Dutch investigators said a faulty altimeter contributed to the recent crash of a 737 in the Netherlands.”
“Boeing reminds all operators to make sure flight crews pay close attention to all primary flight controls during critical stages of a flight,” Boeing spokesman Jim Proulx told CNN on Thursday.
The message from Boeing’s quotes are clear.
