    Return to Airfield

    Hi All,

    I'm wondering if a report would be filed with the AAIB when an aircraft would have to return to its originating airfield?

    I was on a flight on either the 4th or 5th November 2001 going from Glasgow to Heathrow, the aircraft was a British Airways 737. We departed from runway 23 and climbed out to the coast but had to return due to a pressurisation problem. We landed and then departed about 40 minutes later.

    Just wondering what the report, if any, would say?

    P.S. I would appreciate any help in finding the report

    You can try a search yourself but I can find nothing in the database that fits your description.

    So I would take it details weren't published if it required reporting.

        from what I remember of air law (haven't sat the exam yet) if no damage to the aircraft then reporting is optional, or may be reported under CHIRP

          I doubt if a report would have been published then.

            I had forgotten about CHIRP.

            Try searching through the Feedback section to see if it has been reported in there.

              I doubt very much if anything would be found on CHIRP as it is a human factors reporting scheme. There would probably be an MOR (mandatory occurrence report) but definitely an ASR (air safety report) filed. Depending on company procedures it may initially go to the company QA dept and then be passed on from there or may be filed directly. If the former manner is adopted, the report may not reach the CAA if it does not have to be completed for that incident.

              Without full details of what happened it may not have been neccessary to file either and the return was a precautionary one or made due to lack of servicing staff and spares at the originally planned destination.

                Ah, thanks for that. Just thought it would be interesting to read the report, but I suppose it was not big deal!

                  Thanks for that excellent insider info.
