Volcanic Ash

Under the current guidelines, EU airlines must abide by VAAC forecasts whereas US and Middle Eastern airlines use predictions by forecaster WSI, which pointed to lower densities of ash and area

British Airways test flight 9271E found no trace of ash.

Volcanic Ash

EASA Safety Information Bulletin
SIB No.: 2010-17R5
Issued: 11 march 2013
Subject: Flight in Airspace with Contamination of Volcanic Ash

EASA makes the following recommendations:

  1. 1.Avoid operation in visible volcanic ash.

  2. 2.Forecasted presence of volcanic ash should primarily be presented in the form of a zoning system that depicts areas of low, medium and high concentrations in 3 altitude bands.

  3. 3.When ash is forecast to be present within European airspace, it is recommended that an operator conduct flight operations in areas with Medium or High Forecast Ash Contamination, only if they have secured the agreement of the National Aviation Authority supervising their operations to their safety risk assessment for such operations.

It is recommended that Member States will not normally close airspace that is forecast to contain ash contamination.

Volcanic Ash

Ash inspections should include the following:

- wing leading edges
- navigation and landing lights, radomes
- landing gear
- horizontal stabiliser
- all extruding structure
- pitot tubes and static ports
- windows and windshields
- engine inlets and nacelles (turbine), induction air filter (piston)
- engine cooling system components
- engine compressor and turbines
- engine oil systems
- fuel tank venting system
- rotor blades
- ventilation and pressurization systems (e.g., the air cycle machines, ozone converter, recirculation fans, HEPA filters, etc.)
- smoke detectors (e.g., detectors located in the cargo compartment, lavatory, electrical equipment bay, remote crew rest areas, etc.)

Volcanic Ash

Unless specific instructions have already been provided by aircraft and engine TC holders to be applied after encountering a volcanic ash, the above inspections should also be performed after each flight, whenever the following phenomena are observed or detected or experienced during flight

- Acrid odours similar to electrical smoke
- Rapid onset of engine problems
- St. Elmo’s fire
- Bright white/orange glow appearing at the engine inlets - Dust in the cockpit or cabin

- Sudden (unexpected) outside darkness
- Airspeed fluctuations
-Landings lights casting sharp, distinctly visible beam

SAS have presently approval to operate in low and medium ash concentration.
