Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Okay first up. We have an incident. A singapore airlines triple seven stopped. Climb at five hundred feet after the cruise way point. Entry error pilots. Of a singapore airlines boeing triple seven three hundred eighty are inadvertently entered an incorrect waypoint altitude constraint prior to departure resulting in several alerts from the ground proximity warning system as the aircraft climbed out of shanghai prudan. The is put on the. That's what it's going to be exactly right The takeoff runway assign had been changed from three or four left three five right which meant that.

Twenty nineteen incident. He decided to enter the speak constraint of two hundred and fifty knots as shown on the departure charts the triple seven's flight management computer required speed constraints to have a corresponding altitude constraint. So the captain chose to enter five hundred a meaning that the papa delta zero six two point should be crossed at five hundred feet or above but the captain inadvertently mis-keyed typing five hundred rather than five hundred a which neither crew member noticed. This error meant that the aircraft's autopilot would limit the aircraft of five hundred feet ahead of the way point crossing
