The Flydubai air safety reports leaked to the Guardian cover all manner of incidents and mishaps as recorded by pilots during March and April this year.

This is a selection of their reports, which have been abridged in some cases. The sentences in bold have been highlighted by the Guardian.

The misspellings are as they appear in the documents; English is the language used by pilots, but it is not necessarily a pilot’s mother tongue.

In all, the reports include 42 complaints about or experience of fatigue; 25 bird strikes; 10 medical emergencies; five laser incidents; one bomb threat; one “dogs on the runway”; and one unstable aircraft due to unstable truffles.

The Guardian put the concerns raised by the pilots to Flydubai.

The airline said it had developed a “blame free” working culture to allow pilots to raise anxieties.

“Concerns around rostering and fatigue have been raised as part of the open safety reporting mechanism and however small the proportion we take them all equally seriously,” a spokesman said.

“The system is designed to encourage pilots to report all safety concerns as soon as possible.

“Flydubai has never and would never ask its crew to operate outside legally permitted hours. All flights are planned within legal limits.

“We have developed a comprehensive operational system with safety at its core. Our policies, procedures and control systems are applied to every operational function of our airline. They exist to provide our crews with a safe, regulated framework to help them meet the demands of their roles.”
