The ATSB is investigating the operational non-compliance of an Airbus A320, PK-AZE, at Perth Airport, Western Australia, on 24 November 2017.

Shortly after departing Perth Airport, the aircraft was observed turning left at about 300 ft. This was contrary to the standard instrument departure, which required the aircraft to turn right when at 5 NM. Air traffic control then instructed the crew to turn onto a southerly heading and the flight continued without further incident. As part of the investigation, the ATSB will interview the flight crew, review the recorded flight data and gather additional information.

A final investigation report will be released following the conclusion of the ATSB’s investigation.
