Subsiguiente / acciones de seguridad
The following safety recommendations were issued:

1 The Ministry of Defence, the Civil Aviation Administration of Vietnam should take into consideration with a view to increase the minimum obstacle clearance altitudes for routes over mountainous areas along the coast. All airports should be equipped with approach radars.


2 Aviation meteorology industry should in close collaboration with the General Directorate of Hydrometeorology pay more attention to the characteristics of the meteorological forecasts for Aviation industry, inform timely of thunderstorms, low pressure and climate changes in order to take precaution against windshears and vortex which cause violent downdraft and updraft.


3 Control towers at airports near the coast should have adequate meteorological equipment, and the controllers should improve their skills in controlling aircraft during approach.


4 Regarding Nha Trang Airport, if there appears a typhoon 250-400 km away, that typhoon should be watched and kept trace. If the typhoon is within a radius of 200 km or the airport is within the typhoon area, an alert should be initiated and the airport should be closed. Aircraft should be flown at the level of at least 2,000 metres above the highest obstacle along the route W-13 (Da Lat - Nha Trang).


5 The Government should promulgate a decision as soon as possible to form a National Committee for Search and Rescue, and there should be a decree for its operation from central to grassroots levels.
