  • ATSB highlights crew workload in Virgin Australia ATR go-around report

    A Virgin Australia ATR 72 operating a flight from Moranbah to Brisbane had to conduct a go-around after an incorrect flap settings was selected on approach, the Australian Transport Safety Board (ATSB) says.

    The incident occurred on April 2 2017 when ATR 72-500 VH-FVL, with 38 passengers and four crew onboard, was turning onto final approach for Brisbane Airport’s Runway 19.

    At that time, the captain, who was the pilot flying, directed the first officer, who was the pilot monitoring, to select flap 30, set the airspeed indicator bug to the approach speed (VAPP) and start the before landing checklist.
