AAIB investigation to ATR 72-212 A, EI-FCY

Directional control problems on landing, Manchester Airport, 15 May 2014.


On final approach to Manchester Airport, both multifunction computers (MFC) failed, resulting in the nosewheel steering system becoming inoperative. After landing, the aircraft deviated to the left side of the runway before the pilots brought it to a halt. After resetting the MFCs, they were able to taxi the aircraft to the terminal without further incident. Both the manufacturer and the operator have taken safety action because of this incident.
