Accidents & Serious Incidents involving JS31

  • JS31, Fort St. John BC Canada, 2007 (On 9 January 2007, a Peace Air British Aerospace Jetstream 31 on a scheduled service flight from Grand Prairie, Alberta made an instrument approach to Runway 29 at Fort St. John, British Columbia and touched down 320 feet short of the runway striking approach and runway threshold lights.)
  • JS31, Kärdla Estonia, 2013 (On 28 October 2013 a BAe Jetstream 31 crew failed to release one of the propellers from its starting latch prior to setting take off power and the aircraft immediately veered sharply off the side of the runway without directional control until the power levers were returned to idle. The aircraft was then steered on the grass towards the nearby apron and stopped. The Investigation found that the pilots had habitually used "multiple unofficial procedures" to determine propeller status prior to take off and also noted that no attempt had been made to stop the aircraft using the brakes.)
  • JS31, Skien Norway, 2001 (On 30 November 2001, a BAe Jetsream 31 operated by European Executive Express ran off the side of runway 19 on landing at Skien Airport, Geiteryggen, Norway. The runway excursion was the consequence of an unstable non-precision approach, with airframe ice accretion, and a very heavy touchdown, which caused severe aircraft damage and loss of control.)
