RYANAIR STAG PARTY GROUNDED BY GERMAN POLICE AS BRATISLAVA BOUND PLANE DIVERTS TO BERLIN

A Ryanair plane at Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam
A Ryanair flight from London on route to Bratislava in Slovakia on February 26 was diverted by the crew to a Berlin Airport,  after a British stag party from Southampton got out of hand, and caused 'operational problems' on board.  
 
The revellers were refused alcohol service by the Ryanair crew, who alerted the Captain when tempers became frayed.  
 

The pilot decided to divert and make an unexpected stop to remove six members of the rowdy group, including the groom-to-be.   German police reported that one of the men took off his clothes mid-flight, while the others repeatedly left their seats to wander around the plane, ignoring warnings from cabin crew members to stay seated. The group then allegedly became increasingly aggressive after they were refused alcohol service.

Local police said the group was met by police officers after the plane and its 170 passengers landed at Berlin Schönefeld airport.

Schönefeld before the Berlin wall came down was the major civil airport of East Germany (GDR), and the only airport serving East Berlin.

The men, from Southampton and aged between 25 and 28, were temporarily detained and charged under the Aviation Security Act.
which can carry fines of up to 25,000 euros (£19,700).

They could additionally face civil claims from the airline, and a possible worldwide air travel ban.

A Ryanair spokesperson : "This flight from London Luton to Bratislava (26 Feb) diverted to Berlin after a number of passengers became disruptive in-flight.

"The aircraft landed normally and police removed and detained these individuals at Berlin Schönefeld Airport.

"We will not tolerate unruly or disruptive behaviour at any time and the safety and comfort of our customers, crew and aircraft is our number one priority.

"This is now a matter for local police."

This is the latest in a series of British stag party trips to get out of hand.

Another Ryanair flight was delayed in June after a member of a stag party ran on to the airport tarmac in Majorca as part of a dare.
and was promptly arrested by Spanish police.

IAG RESULTS STORM IN WITH AER LINGUS & BRITISH AIRWAYS CONTRIBUTION



The owner of British Airways  International Airlines Group (IAG) has posted higher than expected profits for the year ending 2015, Its put down to marginally cheaper fuel prices and increased customer demand and contributions from acquisitions. 

Fuel accounts for some 30 per cent of overall operating costs, IAG buy fuel 3 years forward so recent fuel price drop will not be realised for some while, perversely the US dollar was strong against the Euro and Sterling during this period.  So that dampened results, although they stand at a year-on-year increase of 125% !! 

IAG , which includes  British Airways, Aer Lingus, Iberia, and other brands, reported an operating profit before exceptional items of €2.34bn (£1.84bn) last year – a year-on-year increase of 125 per cent. The firm predicted an operating profit of €2.29bn for the year, so easily beat that target.

Profits were marginally helped by the falling price of oil and gas, and fixed for three years ahead, which led to a 17.2 per cent reduction in fuel unit costs over the course of the year. Passenger unit revenue eased by 3.5 per cent and non-fuel unit costs were down 3.9 per cent in the 12 months to 31 December 2015.
The results also include a contribution of €35m from Aer Lingus, the Irish airline which was acquired by IAG in August 2015 for €1.5bn.

IAG CEO Willie Walsh commented: "These results are in line with our recent target and have exceeded our original 2015 operating profit target of €1.5bn that we set in 2011.

“It's undoubtedly been a good year but it's also been challenging with extreme volatility in the currency and fuel markets. The benefits gained from lower fuel prices have been partially offset by the stronger US dollar.”

He added that the board is proposing a final dividend to shareholders of €0.10 per share, which will bring the full year dividend to €0.20 per share, subject to shareholder approval at the AGM in June.

Shares fell 1.8 per cent to 548p in early trading. 

Speaking later to the BBC,l on the EU Referendum, Willie Walsh, IAG's chief executive said he didn't think it would make much difference one way or the other to his business: "We've undertaken a risk analysis and we don't believe a vote will have a material impact on our business."

He also repeated his previous view on the chances of a third runway at Heathrow, saying he did not think one would be built because the government continued to delay decision making.

LONDON CITY AIRPORT CHANGES HANDS FOR SOME £2BILLION

 
 
Julian Bray writes: News reaches us that London City Airport after many rumours and a couple of false starts, has finally been bought by a consortium led by a major Canadian pension fund, the value has been indicated as around £2bn.
 
London City Airport, is near Canary Wharf in London's Docklands, in the heart of the City of Londons' financial district.

In 2015, some 4.3 million passengers used the airport, which is an all time record.. This is surprising as some passengers are put off by the wind shear conditions, gusts of wind bouncing of nearby high rise buildings, which sometimes makes landing an interesting proposition. Also some operators have moved some schedules to other airports such as Stansted.

The purchasers are Alberta Investment Management Corporation, and investment funds the Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan and Wren House, part of the Kuwait Investment Authority.
They already operate and own a number of airports, including Belfast International Airport, Birmingham Airport, Bristol Airport, Brussels Airport and Copenhagen Airport.

They view London City Airport as: "a highly attractive infrastructure investment in the UK. The airport represents a unique opportunity to invest in an integral part of the London airport system and offers a service proposition based around location, convenience, speed and customer service".

The new owners are promising to increase the number of routes flown from the airport and claims it would have a "positive economic impact for all of London and the local community, in particular".

London City Airport last changed hands in 2006 (Global Infrastructure Partners), when it carried just two million passengers a year, less than half than the numbers currently passing through its terminal.

LORD HOWARD: BREXIT WOULD SHAKE UP EUROPEAN LEADERS


Lord Howard, BREXIT bound.....

David Cameron has been dealt a fresh blow as a former Tory leader said the EU renegotiation has "met with failure", reports Press Association.

Michael Howard, once a political mentor to the Prime Minister, says he believes Britain should vote to leave to "shake Europe's leaders out of their complacency".

Lord Howard said Britain "would be sorely missed" if it quit the EU and suggested that "there would be a significant chance that they would ask us to think again" if voters backed Brexit.

In an article for The Daily Telegraph, he wrote: "I had hoped that when the Prime Minister announced his intention to commence negotiations for a new relationship between the UK and the EU he might be able to achieve fundamental reform along these lines.

"When he spoke, at the outset of the negotiations, of the need for fundamental reform, I believe he may have had something of this kind in mind.

MPs blast delays in a lack of a national road/rail links access plan to airports across the country


 
 
The provision of an extra runway at Gatwick or Heathrow is 'holding up improved road and rail links to airports' across the country The Commons Transport Select Committee has warned. MPs on the Committee have accused ministers of making "little headway" on boosting airport access.
 
Chair Louise Ellman MP claimed an integrated approach to transport planning has failed.  She pointed to 'no clear plan to upgrade rail infrastructure to link cities and airports across the North' being considered.

"When a decision is finally made about airport expansion in the South East, this must be accompanied by plans to optimise connectivity between regional transport hubs across the country.
"This will provide much-needed national coherence on transport planning matters."

She warned that local areas and regional airports could not be expected to deliver their own plans effectively unless there was "a vision for the country" as a whole.

A report by the Airports Commission conducted independently of Government, controversially recommended building a new runway at Heathrow, rather than providing a second runway at Gatwick.
But the Comission did not rule out another runway at Gatwick or the doubling of an existing runway at Heathrow.

The government has delayed acting on the report, published in July, until further analysis of potential environmental impact is carried out. It would also inconveniently draw attention away from the EU in/out campaign and a referendum this Summer,

HEATHROW 13 get suspended jail sentences and unpaid community work orders...


Greepeace protest in support of the |Heathrow13 
As discussed by Julian Bray on BBC Radio London at 18:40 on Wednesday 24th February (catch up on the BBC I-Player)

Climate change protesters dubbed the Heathrow 13 took part in a runway invasion at Heathrow Airport causing some 25 flights to be cancelled, and flights delayed. They were protesting about a possible third runway at Heathrow airport.

All thirteen have been handed six-week jail sentences but suspended for 12 months, banned from the airport and its surroundings and will have to do unpaid community work. 

The barrister representing four of the activists had said the group had acted on "deeply-held beliefs". This was a sentencing hearing and all had been previously told they could expect jail sentences.

They were found guilty last month of aggravated trespass and entering a security-restricted area, the airport runway. The court was told by the prosecution the protesters' actions caused "astronomical" costs and disruption.

All the defendants must additionally carry out 120 hours unpaid work, apart from protesters Graham Thompson, Danielle Paffard and Roberto Basto, who have previous convictions, and will carry out 60 hours extra unpaid work, making a total of 180 hours each.

The demonstration took place last July, the defendants all from the direct action group Plane Stupid cut through a fence at Heathrow Airport and chained themselves together on a runway.

They were told when they were found guilty they could expect jail sentences, so although suspended legally they have received jail terms.

Arguing against a prison sentence Kirsty Brimelow QC,  for four of the defendants, told Willesden Magistrates they believed they had been "acting in the public interest" and highlighted what she called a "hard-fought for" tradition of civil disobedience.

The barrister instructed by Mike Schwarz of Bindmans said: "We have come a long way since the days of the suffragettes, since those people would have been locked up and treated appallingly."

District Judge Deborah Wright said her understanding was that "immense" costs had been caused by the protest.

Prosecutor Robert Short said prosecution costs alone had reached about £14,000.

3. Robert Basto  - you have  two previous convictions which arise out of protests One is for aggravated trespass in 2011.  You have  been a longstanding campaigner on environmental issues and your  views are described in the PSR as rigid.  You have a wife who does not enjoy the

I can not resist surmising that you may get there using air travel.

CAA AEROMEDICAL CENTRE TO CLOSE DOWN ON FEBRUARY 28th -BUT OTHER (RESTRICTED SERVICE) AEROMEDICAL EXAMINERS ARE AVAILABLE

Although the CAA aeromedical centre is closing down other aeromedical examiners are available on the CAA Database.
 Our picture shows the Royal Flying Doctor Service Exhibition unit (in Australia!)

THE CAA Medical Centre at Gatwick is closing down on February 28th, as the CAA claim there are enough Aeromedical Examiners on their database distributed throughout the country and at other airports who can undertake the required medical examinations locally.

However new or initial medical examinations / certificates for Class1 and Class 3 can only be completed at an Aeromedical Centre (AeMC):


To Find an AeMC:

All current AeMCs are listed below.

1:  London AeMC, 22 Upper Wimpole Street, London W1G 6NB (email: reception@amsgatwick.com or call 01293 77533601293 775336)
    
2: Aviation Medical Services: Horley, Surrey

3 & 4 NATS Aeromedical Centre (Swanwick, Hampshire and Prestwick, Ayrshire)  NOTE: NATS are not currently carrying out initial Class 1 medical examinations. 

So effectively for INITIAL (ie NEW) CLASS ONE MEDICAL EXAMINATIONS you now only have 2 locations:

Central London and Horley Surrey, as CAA Gatwick is closing down at the end of February 2016. 


The database link is: 

http://publicapps.caa.co.uk/modalapplication.aspx?appid=21


A medical certificate can be revalidated before it expires or renewed after it has expired.

Revalidation and renewal examinations should take less time than those required for initial issue and they may not require all the additional tests. This depends on when the last test was carried out, the type of certificate held and your age at examination.

Revalidation

You can revalidate a Class 1 medical certificate by taking a revalidation examination at an Aeromedical Centre (AeMC) or by appointment with an Aeromedical Examiner (AME).
Aeromedical Centres
Find an AME 
 
You can take your revalidation examination up to 45 days before your certificate’s expiry date.

Expiry date for revalidated certificates

When you revalidate a medical certificate, the validity period following revalidation will be calculated from its original expiry date.
Download our full table of medical certificate validity periods

Renewal

If you do not get your certificate revalidated in the 45 days leading up to its expiry date, you will need to have it renewed.


You can renew a Class 1 medical certificate by taking a renewal examination at an Aeromedical Centre (AeMC) or by appointment with an Aeromedical Examiner (AME), subject to the following conditions:
  • If your certificate expired more than 2 years before your attempt to renew it, the examiner will need to assess your aero-medical records before carrying out the renewal examination
  • If your certificate expired more than 5 years before then you will have to follow the same process as for initial issue.

TURKISH HOLIDAY FIRM GOES BUST, 300 HOLIDAYMAKERS GET REFUNDS UNDER THE CAA ATOL BOND SCHEME




Around 300 holidaymakers are being assisted by the ATOL protection scheme, after the failure of a London-based travel business.

Elixir Holidays Ltd, which specialised in bespoke package holidays to Turkey, ceased trading on Wednesday 17 February 2016.

The company, ATOL holder 6481, had around 300 passengers booked to travel, but had no customers abroad at the time of its failure.

All package holiday bookings were ATOL protected and customers will therefore get full refunds.

Andy Cohen, Head of ATOL, said: “At one of the busiest periods for booking holidays, the collapse of Elixir Holidays is a timely reminder of why holidaymakers should make sure their trip is ATOL protected and that they receive an ATOL certificate, as soon as they've booked their trips.

“As a result of the ATOL protection scheme, customers of this business have the peace of mind they will get a full refund and not lose their hard-earned money.

“Sadly, booking an unprotected holiday could leave you out of pocket or stranded abroad if something goes wrong with your travel company.

“So if you are looking for air holiday ahead of the summer, it is essential to check that you will get ATOL protection and receive an ATOL certificate when you hand over any money.”

The CAA has published advice for anyone affected by the collapse of Elixir Holidays and a claim form is on its website.

To check if a company provides ATOL protection and to find out more about the ATOL scheme, please visit www.packpeaceofmind.co.uk.

ICAO Council Prohibits Lithium-Ion battery Bulk Cargo Shipments on Passenger Aircraft from April 1st

 

 
The 36-State ICAO [International Civil Aviation Organisation Governing Council], a United Nations Agency,  has ratified a new aviation safety measure which prohibits, on an interim basis, all shipments of Lithium-ion batteries as cargo on passenger aircraft.
______________________

LAS VEGAS FIRE PLANE 'BEING PATCHED UP' BY BA AND DESTINED FOR PASSENGER OPERATIONS...

     


You may recall a London-bound Boeing 777-200 operated by British Airways caught fire on the ground at a Las Vegas airport in September, the pilot (who was on the verge of a long and happy retirement) piloting his penultimate flight as a Captain, and handled a textbook evacuation of the passengers and crew on board.

So what happened to the aircraft?
Was it an insurance  'write off' destined for recycling?  




Most commentators assumed the jet would never fly again. The fuselage was engulfed in flames and acrid smoke as passengers slid down emergency chutes, and some stupidly refused to leave without their cabin baggage, essentially holding up the emergency evacuation.

However pictures  have emerged on Twitter of the aircraft being patched up at McCarran International Airport, some two miles from the Las Vegas Strip. And BA confirmed it is to be put back into service following the completion of "stringent checks".

A faulty American made General Electric [GE] GE90-85B jet engine which caused the blaze has been 'swapped out'  by GE and replaced.

A statement rushed out said: "The airframe was inspected by a team of highly experienced engineers from Boeing who concluded that the damage was limited and suitable for repair.  A team from Boeing is carrying out the repair work, which will be certified to the same high standards as if the aircraft was brand new."

___________________

Julian Bray aviation expert writes: Within aviation circles it was always thought that as the damage was confined to one specific area, the aircraft would be patched up, re-certificated and and possibly sold on, for say cargo operations.  I've flown on aircraft that had been patched up, and put back into service, one in particular, (British Caledonian) lost its entire tail section, which was recovered and temporarily re-attached, then flown back from Africa to the UK for repairs..  

The assertion by BA this particular aircraft would return to passenger operation is however unusual as with acrid smoke contamination the smoke residue leaves a tar like residue on all services and in many highly inaccessible compartments and cable ducting, simply the smell will never be totally eliminated unless the entire aircraft is taken apart.  
______________________


During the November incident the Boeing triple 7 was about to ake off for a 10-hour flight to London Gatwick when the captain applied braking as fire alarms went off and flames emerged fropmn a failed engine.  157 passengers, 10 crew and three pilots were on board and  evacuated down emergency slides.


BA captain Chris Henkey, from Reading, Berkshire, had completed 42 years flying with BA and was on his penultimate flight before retirement. He said after the incident that he was "unlikely" to make his final flight, as a Captain but he made his last flight 'as a passenger' with his Partner on a holiday flight with BA.

The Small Planet Airbus was pushed back off the turf with a tractor some two hours later, onto the taxiway.



In a statement, the airport said: "Birmingham Airport confirms that an A320 aircraft belonging to charter company, Small Planet, has manoeuvred off the taxiway into grass after landing from Paderborn at 1320 today (Sunday).

"Passengers have safely disembarked and have been bussed to the terminal. There are no reports of injuries."

The airport's fire engines and emergency teams attended  throughout the recovery process. Birmingham's single runway remained operational throughout.

A spokesman for the carrier Small Planet, said: "On February 21, Small Planet Airlines flight S5-3260 from Paderborn in Germany ran off the taxiway after landing at Birmingham airport and stopped on the grass. All 98 passengers safely disembarked the aircraft and there were no injuries."

Should I stay or should I Go? Michael Gove explains....




Full statement from Justice Secretary Michael Gove on his decision to campaign for Britain to leave the EU.

For weeks now I have been wrestling with the most difficult decision of my political life. But taking difficult decisions is what politicians are paid to do. No-one is forced to stand for Parliament, no-one is compelled to become a minister. If you take on those roles, which are great privileges, you also take on big responsibilities.    >>>>>>>

Malaysia posts terror warnings as Brits warned off popular coastal resorts by the UK Government FCO

 
 
The Foreign & Commonwealth Office has unexpectedly raised the terror alert status from GENERAL to HIGH for a popular Malaysian tourist resort favoured by British tourists. 
 
The advice is against all but essential travel to the idyllic coastal towns and islands off Sabah state, north east Malaysia. The FCO said there was 'a high threat from terrorism' and added a chilling warning suggesting attacks on places visited by foreigners 'could be indiscriminate'. 
 
Deemed high risk are the coastal resorts, coastal towns and islands of Lankayan, Mabul, Pom Pom, Kapalai, Litigan, Sipadan and Mataking. Other areas are also under threat.
 
The FCO added: 'There is a threat to foreigners of kidnapping and criminality on the eastern coast of Sabah and in particular the islands close to the Sulu Archipelago in the southern Philippines.'
 
In happier times, annually more than 400,000 Britons visit Malaysia. Two Malaysian nationals were abducted in the coastal town of Sandakan in May, and one eventually murdered.  Malaysia has increased security in the resort towns, in response to several kidnapping incidents, it has been reported.

Last month, the Malaysian police said the country was on the country's highest ever security alert.

BREXIT - NO EU HIDING PLACE AS GREECE ( and partners) HOLD OUR FEET TO THE FIRE




Julian Bray writes: A chance phone call earlier today (Friday) from someone intimately involved with the European Reform programme suggests a few key side deals, or issues, are being additionally negotiated, in addition to the main headline demands David Cameron is hoping to take back to his Cabinet as a done deal.

The suggestion is that bilateral European reform mini-package deals (or incentives) are being discreetly shuffled between several of the dissenting parties. Its a big ask as the 27 member states of the EU will all have to agree, before it is put to the EU parliament.

The word is that its not just Greece threatening a blanket veto, but also Spain and Portugal, who feel they have been repeatedly disadvantaged by the main players, and their own set of issues, have they contend been 'put on the back boiler' during Mr Camerons' whirlwind round of diplomacy over the last few weeks.

New EASA Flight Time Limitations (FTL) rules now in force, a fully harmonised European set of rules specifically targeting air crew fatigue....

 
 
 
New EASA Flight Time Limitations (FTL) rules are now in force  (from February 18th), this is a fully harmonised European set of rules specifically targeting air crew fatigue which is of course a clear risk to flight safety. BUT it is widely feared that not enough has been done to put the supporting education programme in place to ensure all the complex regulations are full understood by national aviation and government organisations in addition to smaller regional airlines.
 
_______________
 
Julian Bray Aviation Expert comments: So finally the EASA FTL regulations - the ones they said would never be implemented, astonished some owners in the process, but they have, after a long preparatory period, finally arrived. In view of still unexplained aircraft losses in 2015, not a moment before time.
 
Clearly there is now no excuse for airline schedulers, marketing and operations staff to impose on air crew, unworkable, unrealistic rotas, rotations and skimping on rest days. The FTL regs. cover just about everything.
 
Clearly as this is a bottom up, brand new way of working, FTL will have teething troubles, but these should be easily identified and modifications put in place. We can all feel much safer.
 
_________________________
 
The new set of rules and regulations cover all aspects of fatigue risk mitigation, including time-zone crossing, sleep-disrupting flight schedules and addresses cross-border issues.
 
“Interpreting them correctly and in a harmonised manner will remain difficult not only for the companies and national authorities, but also for the individual pilots. This is why ECA developed an online FTL Calculator – allowing each pilot to calculate the legal limits for their daily flight duties."  
 
“As our survey among 6.000 European pilots showed, the application of the new EASA rules is a timely reminder that fatigue is a reality today in Europe’s cockpits,” says ECA Secretary General Philip von Schöppenthau.
 
“And the real extent of the problem is still not reflected in official data as over 70% of all fatigue occurrences are not reported. The good news, however, is that under the new EU Occurrence Reporting Regulation fatigue reporting is no longer a choice but an obligation.”
 
We've included a link to regulations on the EASA website and part of the initial overview. Our suggestion is you copy off the URL and widely circulate the rules. Which are now a mandatory consideration for us all...
 
 
FROM THE CAA WEBSITE:

From 18 February 2016 Commercial Air Transport operators of aeroplanes will need to have transitioned to EASA Subpart FTL. Operators can transition before this date and most major airlines plan to transition by October 2015 for the start of the winter season.

Who is affected?

The regulations apply to:
  • Commercial Air Transport aeroplane operators
However, the following groups are currently exempt from the regulations:
  • Air taxi operators of aeroplanes of 19 seats or less
  • Emergency Medical Services (EMS)
  • Single pilot operations
  • Helicopter operations 
EASA has a number of rulemaking tasks for FTL over the next few years including air taxi operators, EMS, single pilot operations and helicopters. In the future new rules will also cover ultra long range operations and non-commercial complex operations.

What does this mean for affected operators?

They will have to introduce both new prescriptive limitations and new demonstrable processes and procedures required by the regulations. This is a significant change in requirements and regulatory approach as operators will be required to actively demonstrate how they manage fatigue.
Affected operators will need to:
  • Write a new scheme that demonstrates all the requirements under the regulations.
  • Develop processes and procedures, including demonstrating how they are managing their crews' fatigue levels and associated operational risks. They will have to show how they can meet these new responsibilities before they transition.
  • Submit a change management plan/safety case to show that they have assessed the risks of the change and how they will manage it.
  • Conduct fatigue management training with all crew members, crewing and rostering staff and management. The initial training requirement must be completed during the transition process before the operator can secure a new FTL approval.
Further guidance materials and supporting documents on FTL are available, these include: 

What does this mean for crew?

All crew members flying for affected operators will have to learn the new regulations, take part in fatigue management training, and be aware of their increased rights and responsibilities.

Disruptive schedules - Early/late type decision

In implementing the requirements of ARO.OPS.230 (Determination of disruptive schedules) all CAT operators under a UK issued AOC will be required to comply with the ‘late type’ definition.

Variations

Within the new regulations there are two standard variations that an operator may apply for:
  • Two pilot flight duty period limits when un-acclimatised
  • Reduced rest provisions
These both require an increased level of risk assessment and full Fatigue Risk Management (FRM) approval. Unless an operator already holds an FRM approval, they will not be granted one with their initial EASA Subpart FTL scheme and therefore will not  initially be able to use these variations.
