According to Bisnis.com, the number of Indonesian commercial airline accidents in 2011 has increased 28.6% over the previous year. To date, there have been 36 air accidents recorded in Indonesia.

According to officials from the Indonesian Department of Civil Aviation, the majority of the air accidents have been traced to pilot error. The director of Air Worthiness and Aircraft Operations from the Ministry of Transportation, Diding Sunardi, is concerned by the increase in air accidents in Indonesia. “Most of the accidents have happened when the pilot lost control of the aircraft or are due to weather conditions,” explained Sunardi on the sidelines of a Boeing workshop of performance planning for flight crews.

Diding said the current seminar was being conducted to reduce air accident levels in Indonesia. On an international level, 56% of all air accidents are linked to mistakes made by aircrews. All accidents are broken down into three categories: accidents, serious incidents and incidents. To qualify as an “accident” an air mishap results in either death or injury; a “serious incident” causes damage to an aircraft; and an “incident” is a malfunction that causes a delay or cancellation of a scheduled flight.

Data from Flight Safety International attributes 56% of all aircraft mishaps are blamed on pilot and flight crew mistakes, 17% are caused by aircraft malfunction. Meanwhile, data from the Indonesian Ministry of Transportation records for 2011 show 11 accidents causing death or injury, 16 serious incidents resulting in aircraft damage, and 9 incidents causing flight disruptions. The corresponding figures for 2010 recorded 9 accidents, 9 serious incidents and 10 incidents.

The head of the communications department for the Ministry of Transportation, Bambang S. Ervan confirmed that discussions are underway with the National Air Safety Commission (KNKT) to create a judicial court for air transport that if implemented would allow financial sanctions to be imposed on flight crew failings handed down after a professional review by an aviation tribunal.
