Rostransnadzor discovered flight safety problems at the Yakutia airline. Problems were identified at the level of the management of the carrier company: about 55 cases requiring investigation by the Federal Air Transport Agency were hidden, and the pilots made "adventurous" decisions at least 25 times that threaten the safety of passengers.

As they write "News", Rostransnadzor sent a letter to the head of the Republic of Yakutia Aisen Nikolaev. As indicated in the document, the authorities must intervene promptly in order to prevent negative consequences. The department noted the inability of the carrier's management to properly perform their duties to ensure safety and regularity of flights.

The problems were revealed after checking in August this year. It turned out that the leadership massively concealed aviation events requiring an investigation by the Federal Air Transport Agency. Since the beginning of the year alone, more than 55 such facts have been identified that fall into the category of aviation incidents. Without an investigation by the Federal Air Transport Agency, the airline could not take adequate corrective measures to prevent the emergence of threats to flight safety. Among the hidden cases: non-release of the chassis, exceeding the maximum permissible engine speed, a sharp drop in pressure in the hydraulic system and other incidents.

The crews were also exposed to unjustified risks. In particular, in 25 cases they made "adventurous" decisions on landing with an unstabilized approach without go-around. Also, aircraft that did not undergo proper maintenance were allowed to operate at least 70 times, according to the letter.

In total, from 2019 to 2020, there were 30 aviation events, and since the beginning of 2021 - 16. In 36 cases, the management did not take action for aircraft failures for a long time. For example, if an unacceptable vibration was detected in the engine turbine on August 16, a Boeing 737 aircraft made 30 commercial flights until the defect was eliminated.

Also, 95% of the engineering and technical personnel did not undergo compulsory periodic training. In addition, there are violations in the procedures and technology for passing the technical inspection. Aircraft assemblies are being rearranged without the necessary checks and research. Components and materials with expired service life are used from warehouses. There were about 100 such violations. In addition to this, the timeliness of departures from the base airport of Yakutsk was less than 40%, which already has negative consequences and leads to numerous complaints from citizens.
