Accidents & Serious Incidents involving GALX

  • DH8C / GALX, Valencia Spain, 2008 (On 11 February 2008, the crew of a DHC8-300 misjudged the sufficient clearance during taxi and collided with a Gulfstream G200 at a taxiway intersection.)
  • GALX, en-route, North East of Newfoundland, Canada, 2007 (On 8 February 2007, A Gulfstream G-200 on an eastbound transatlantic delivery flight being undertaken by its operator entered a high altitude stall resulting from crew flight planning errors after which flight at an altitude incompatible with the performance limits of the aircraft as loaded was attempted. The crew response to this situation was confused but eventually, recovery to controlled flight was achieved. The Investigation attributed the event to lack of flight crew understanding of the core principles of flight at high altitude.)
