Today in Jakarta the National Committee for Transport Safety (KNKT) of Indonesia and the Russian side signed the protocol on the results of joint activity in investigation of the SSJ100 #97004 accident.
According to the signed document the preliminary analysis of the CVR data showed the following: indications of the failure of the aircraft’s systems and components were not discovered, the terrain and collision avoidance system T2CAS was functionally operative in flight and provided crew with information on the hazardous ground proximity.
Due to the fact that the flight data recorder (FDR) has not been found works on detailed analysis of the radar information of the air traffic control (ATC) will continue. This is necessary to plot the aircraft’s flight path and synchronize ATC and CVR data.
The document signed by KNKT Chairman Tanang Kurniadi and Deputy Russian Minister for Industry and Trade Yuri Slyusar also noted the need to continue the search for the FDR. The Indonesian side will continue the search for the FDR.
“We highly value the professionalism of our Indonesian colleagues and their Russian counterparts that participated in the work of the commission. From our side, SCAC will ensure maximum collaboration in supply of any data necessary to conduct a thorough and comprehensive investigation of the accident” – said Vladimir Prisyazhyuk, SCAC President.
