Hello there Nyakundi I am (Name withheld), congrats to engineer hulk on his earlier hot expose’ on Flysax crookedness.
I am here to write to account that fly SAX/540 is responsible for the accident, being an aircraft engineer for many years exposes one to challenges and clear understanding of how aircraworkrks and its limitation.
having watched and clearly analyzed aircraft investigation, accident don’t just happen there are series of events
1.human factors in aviation;
Normally, these are major causes of aviation accidents and incidents.
Lets start with 540/SAX… this is just one company and the aircraft that had an accident was on maintenance in 540 Hangar, under human factors above let me make one thing clear, as the maintenance of 5Y-CAC was going on don smith (CEO) fired some maintenance personnel involved in this check,he issued warning letters anyhow, how this can this lead to an accident you may be wondering?
No.4 distraction, continuation of the work one was carried out by another maintenace personel can result in errors, could these errors be the case where some major equipments were not working, let me make it clear you cannot hit a hill without a ground proximity waning system warning the pilot, there are navigation equipment,ahrs (altitude and heading reference system), even after the aircraft crashed the elt(emergency locator transmitter) never worked, and please the atc cant be blammed here they dont guide an aircraft 100% of the journey, the decision to land in jkia was request from the company not a decision by atc,
This is not the first fatal accident that the company had years back,
Fly540 Fokker F-27 plane crash
13th august, 2008
Does the public know of this? this was hidden from the public and don smith employed one of the brother to the deceased engineer as a cleaner now in jkia line to hide some truth. when you google this you will find some truth.
The second accident
There is an accident that happened at Wilson Airport on a test flight, to be simple on this the flight engineer had no chair, after the accident a chair was thrown at the scene of the accident to show that there was a chair for the engineer and it had come off, don smith dispatched large sum of cash to the accident scene through aiden moh to pay reporters to leave the scene as this would destroy the image of the company. https://aviation-safety.net/database/record.php?id=20110127-0 was this reported? don smith has his ways , am afraid if the truth is not taken into account it will be hidden by this mafia.
The incident on JKIA 540 CRJ
Here we go again bad maintenance, a CRJ 100 main wheel got off from the aircraft as it was taxing, the crew were notified of this by a Jambo Jet Aircraft that was taxing behind, was the company held responsible for this? again this was hidden till a disaster for 5Y-CAC. short cuts are how to define 540/SAX
The major 5Y-BXD CRJ 100
Why this, one of its engine was consuming a lot of oil, after every flight, to simplify a crj aircraft should consume an average of 2 quarts per day depending on flight as well, well the engineers in this airline wrote emails,hand over books on how this engine was unsafe for flight, what did the company do? money first, let it fly, the airline was very aware of how dangerous this was but they never took any caution.
The engine failed at flight on its way to juba, it came back with one engine and landed in JKIA, please note this failure would have been avoided. this would have cost lives like 5Y-CAC, so you can imagine all those systems that were not working on 5y-cac.
one big question is how this aircraft left JKIA to wilson with a faulty engine, some crazy pilot was paid handsomely to take it to Wilson Airport.
True facts, so who signed this aircraft? where was KCAA on this? if this aircraft crashed you would be told the same crap, ATC weather etc, aircraft have been directed to Mombasa, Nairobi did the pilots say they have never been to Kenya or they are not familiar with the route? no there is a navigational equipment for this? was the one for 5Y-CAC working? was the weather radar working? was the ahrs working? what of GPS? we clearly know the elt did not work? could life have been saved if the elt was working?
Ps. the person responsible for this is Muhammed Uppal, the chief engineer who Don Smith has kept to be taking short cuts for him, remember this is all to cut cost, make engineers take short cuts to help achieve this, make these engineer be in a blackmail situation, remember the field is too small this engineer is known to call other hiring company and advice them not to hire a certain individual. though this has changed the former line manager Peter Mwangi had one licence which he acquired by back doors means, he has been used by this company before to male decisions that the company wants. in maintenance we don’t just do what the company wants, we do by what the aircraft manuals and kcaa regulation. the line manager was at the time of 5y-bxd, what did he do?
There are so many incidents that we can list here that can show how 540/SAX take risks and put passengers and crew life at risks, they will try to blame the dead on this 5Y-CAC accident, ATC or weather, not the actual airworthy of the aircraft, also take note that this aircraft was not airworthy if all these equipments were not working, we don’t understand why the aircraft had delayed in kitale maybe because of weather or most likely the aircraft had snags and the pilot in dilemma.
How the company holds employee through blackmail
1.failure to submit deductions
The company or let me say don smith fails to submit NSSF, NHIF, tax and contribution to Sacco even after deducting them from the salary. its illegal to do this, why is the government so silent on this airline, let me make one thing clear with evidence: See attachment, 540/SAX has deducted money from the employee since february 2018 till date but has not submitted the money to the sacco. The rest follows suit the tax(see attachments) after an employee gets sick that’s the time you realize your contribution to NHIF are behind in moths. where is the justice for the employees working in 540?
2.Company transport for those working in JKIA,
Please note that human factors are connected to this, a simple thing can lead tp an accident, see accident investigation related to cutting on cost and see how the above human factors can play a role.
These employees are expected to be at JKIA4 am 4am, there is no company transport, there are no transport/fuel allowances, same goes at night shifts, shifts has no clear end, it can be at 11pm or 1am don simply doesn’t care how these employees goes home. some have to spend the night at the office chairs. how efficiently can these employee work? especially engineers how well can they make decisions on the aircraft’s that are carrying innocent lives. this is a disaster waiting to happen. don clearly said if you are not comfortable just resign.
3.Fear to sue as the industry is too small
Don Smith can fire at will, he knows very well that if you sue the airline, news will spread and the other airlines will most likely not accept you. so you are to do as the airline tells you to do, even if its clearly wrong and put the lives of people at danger(remember above 5Y-BXD). Some have resigned and have been fired for their conscious cannot allow but most are hanging there as this is the source of income.
Another email will come with call recordings that clearly shows this mohammed uppal can clearly take shortcuts on a no go items at put lives at risk.
Please post this information for public and families of the affected to know, keep my identity hidden, and please write back when you post.
