Cebu Pacific hits the lights ... Again.

Another Cebu Pacific plane skids
By Jaymee T. Gamil
Philippine Daily Inquirer
3:43 am | Saturday, June 15th, 2013

A Cebu Pacific Airways plane skidded on the runway at Ninoy Aquino International Airport and damaged edge lights on Thursday, less than two weeks after another airplane belonging to the airline veered off the runway and fell into a ditch at Davao International Airport, leaving 165 passengers shaken.
None of the 95 passengers of Flight 5J-448 was hurt when the plane, an Airbus A320, skidded on Naia’s runway 06/24 after landing in heavy rain on Thursday afternoon.
But Capt. John Andrews, deputy director of the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP), said Flight 5J-448’s pilot, Capt. Joseph Palomillo, was “automatically grounded” for a medical examination after the incident.
A report from the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA), operator of Naia, said Flight 5J-488 from Iloilo City landed at 4:16 p.m. on Thursday, but as the plane was taxiing down runway 06/24, it skidded to the right and hit five edge lights.
Andrews said the Airbus A320 swerved to the runway’s shoulder, but remained on the tarmac.
The plane ran over the runway lights, he said.
The pilot managed to correct the Airbus A320’s direction and proceeded to bring the plane toward the Terminal 3 ramp, where the passengers disembarked.
CAAP chief financial officer Rodante Joya said the CAAP would “conduct an investigation.”
“I offer that since all involved in the accident have been interviewed and the black box recovered immediately, the investigation can be done relatively faster,” Joya said.

Pilot Fatigue

Perhaps it's time the CAAP investigated the fatigue level of a crew member that is not given sufficient rest? It's standard practice, at Cebu Pacific, to deny the pilots any rest days off per month. During the supposed 8 days off per month, according the pilot code of conduct, all Crew members are required to be contactable by phone, and when contacted, they must report to work. No choice. If the crew member would like to leave his base, it's only by written permission.

Is it any wonder there are incidents? If you combine that with 4-6 sector days, combining night flights and early morning flights, well it doesn't require an Einstein, does it Mr. Br--n.
