Analysis and study of the data recorder and cockpit voice recorder of the ATR-72 Yeti Airlines aircraft that crashed in Pokhara have been completed, according to the Aircraft Accident Investigation Commission.

The ATR-72 of Yeti Airlines that flew to Pokhara from Kathmandu on January 15 met with an accident in the course of landing at Pokhara International Airport, killing all 72 passengers and crew members on board.

The Commission formed by the government to investigate the incident has carried out data analysis of the flight data recorder and cockpit voice recorder at the Transport Safety Investigation Bureau, Singapore.

Member-Secretary of the Commission, Buddhi Sagar Lamichhane, said a team of commission coordinators, aviation experts, and member-secretaries has returned home after completing the task of data analysis of the flight data recorder and cockpit voice recorder successfully.

Further study of different flights and technical aspects was carried out at separate simulator flights of ATR aircraft in Singapore.

During the analysis and investigation, the propellers of both engines were found to have gone to feathering in the base leg in course of landing. Member-Secretary Lamichhane further said the Commission is carrying out further investigation into technical and human aspects of it.

A press release issued by the Commission mentioned that preparation was underway to come up with a preliminary report along with recommendations to increase aviation safety based on analysis and investigation of information and data received so far. The final report would be published later.
