“LANGKAWI, March 16 (Bernama) -- Flying school HM Aerospace has set up a committee to probe the emergency landing by its Diamond (DA40) light aircraft in the sea near the Pasir Hitam police officers mess in Ayer Hangat on Monday.
Its principal, Brig-Gen (R) Datuk Ranjit Singh Gill, said today the committee would prepare a report for submission to the Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) and HM Aerospace.
The probe would be an internal affair and need not be made public, he told Bernama.
In the 9.30am incident, the aircraft landed about 100m from the beach and the pilot and a trainee were brought to safety by fishermen who were in the vicinity.
Meanwhile, the aircraft was taken to the flying school in Padang Matsirat yesterday for further investigation.
