Minister: 85 Percent of Aviation Incident Caused by Human Error

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Transportation Minister Budi Karya Sumadi, during his talks with aviation expert Ilham Habibie post the Monday crash of Lion Air JT 610, said human error was believed to be the most common cause of aviation accidents.

“He [Ilham Habibie] says there are two factors behind airplane accidents: human error and technical error. According to statistics, human error is a very dominant factor contributing to 85 percent,” said Budi as quoted in Tempo magazine edition of November 5-11, 2018.

Budi could not comment on the cause of the accident considering investigation was still underway conducted by the National Transportation Safety Commission (KNKT). However, he mentioned, the Boeing 737 Max 8 was a brand new plane and very sophisticated, and so the pilot’s skill did not match with the plane.

“But, again, I don’t want to speak too soon before the investigation is concluded,” Budi underlined.

Budi explained there were no troubles found in the examination on 11 Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft operated in Indonesia. The government held a special audit on the aircraft, standard operation procedure, management, and flight crew and equipment which the result would be sent to the KNKT.

The minister then suspended technical directors and officials following the indication of human error. “I suspended technical directors after discussion with several parties,” he added.

Based on data collected by Tempo, 58 percent of airplane accidents throughout 1960 until 2015 caused by pilot error, while 17 percent caused by troubles on the plane machine.
