Bureau d’Enquetes et d’Analyses (BEA) – Safety Investigation Report
Serious incident to the BOMBARDIER CL-600-2E25 (CRJ-1000) registered F-HMLD on 20 October 2021 on approach to Nantes-Atlantique (Loire-Atlantique
The BEA has issued its final report on a serious incident involving a Bombardier CL-600 (CRJ-1000) on approach to Nantes in Oct 2021.  The crew read-back and set an incorrect QNH (1021) instead of 1002, which was not detected by the controller.  The approach was approximately 600ft below profile, resulting in a Minimum Safe Altitude Warning and controller intervention.

The safety lessons/recommendations for the operator in this are:

  • To have a procedure that crews treat an ATC generated Minimum Safe Altitude Warning the same as an EGPWS ‘Pull up’ warning.
  • To consider adding the feature called Altimeter Monitor on the Honeywell Mark V EGPWS that derives geometric altitude and generates an ‘Altimeter Setting’ warning if it computes that an incorrect QNH is set

EASA Volcanic Ash Action Plan Update – July 2010
Posted: September 2010

Potential Operations in Future Ash Contaminated Areas
Since the height of the volcanic ash crisis in April and May the CAA has instituted a comprehensive Work Programme to look at all the aspects of establishing what ash is in the atmosphere, its potential affect on aircraft and how to manage the resultant risks. As an integral part of this Work Programme, CAA colleagues have participated in the ICAO Paris VA Task Force (TF), the ICAO HQ International VA TF, held regular teleconferences with OEMs and operators and held bilaterals/workshops with airlines and the Met Office. From the national perspective, one of the outcomes of this activity is a matrix looking at what types of operation might be possible in various types of airspace in any future ash event. A copy of the proposed matrix is attached.
The purpose of this matrix is to:
Help facilitate as much flight as possible in the vicinity or even within clouds of ash, especially where those flights (and machines typically used for those flights) are used to provide essential services to communities.
Identify clearly who has the responsibility for the decision to conduct operations in certain volumes of airspace and it puts the burden of responsibility and risk management firmly on the operators of the aircraft.
Recognise that the ash cloud is a source for a common failure mode (e.g. it would affect all engines on one aircraft) – that is why, for example, twin engine helicopters must be flown as if they were a single engine-machine.
We welcome your views on the ideas set out in the matrix and how it might affect your type of operation. The material has been sent to the following CAA consultative bodies and to NATS and other ANSPs: GACC (FOD), AOA (ASD), HIAL (ASD), FOLG (FOD), NATMAC (DAP)

As a consequence, you may be asked to comment on the matrix as an organisation more than once if you have representatives on more than one of these groups. It would be helpful if you could co-ordinate your response accordingly and, as this is largely an airworthiness issue, in the case of NATMAC representatives please forward your response to Ray Elgy in the Safety Regulation Group at Gatwick. His contact details are as follows: Ray Elgy, Head of Licensing and Training Standards, 2W, Aviation House, Gatwick Road, Gatwick Airport South, West Sussex, RH6 0YR [email protected] 01293 573250

In order to finalise and publish the document on the CAA website it would be helpful to have any comments no later than Friday 24 September 2010.
