Three safety recommendations were issued:
REC 08/03. It is recommended that the Civil Aviation General Directorate (DGAC) should establish guidelines and limitations on training manoeuvres involving intentional engine inoperative procedures, whether real or simulated, particularly as regards the minimum altitude and phase of the flight in which it is permitted.
REC 09/03. It is recommended that the aircraft's manufacturer, in coordination with the propeller's manufacturer, review the design conditions, referred to plays and tolerances, and the maintenance conditions of the bushing that exists between the sliding piston rod and the hub cover, in order to minimise the possibility of seizing and breakage during propeller operation.
REC 10/03. It is recommended that the Civil Aviation General Directorate, in coordination with "Spanish Airports and Air Navigation" (AENA), evaluate the possibility of carrying out the necessary modifications to runway 07/25 of Barcelona Airport in order to ensure compliance with the recommendations of Appendix 14 of the OACI, last edition, relating to its physical characteristics and the restriction and elimination of obstacles.
