The Chairman of Air Peace, Allen Onyema, says management reported the incident to the regulatory agency, the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, NCAA and also wrote to Boeing and the manufacturer of the aircraft’s engine, CPM International.
“When the incident occurred, we reported it to NCAA. We followed the aircraft manual, which guided us on what to do when such incidents occurred.
“We wrote to Boeing, the aircraft manufacturer and also wrote to the engine manufacturer, CPM International. We also grounded the aircraft.
“We always report any incident to the NCAA and sometimes, you may not know what to report to AIB because the NCAA is the regulatory authority and the Bureau is in charge of accident investigation.
“So when incidents like hard landing happen and you inform NCAA, we feel we have followed the procedure.
“Boeing has written back to us and told us what to do. According to the procedure, some inspection is currently being carried out on the aircraft,” Onyema said.
