AAIB Report SE-MAO, Control difficulties in flight, Guernsey, Channel Islands

In windy conditions, the crew of an SE-MAO performed a go-around from their first approach to Runway 33 at Birmingham Airport. On the second approach the aircraft departed the runway to the left after touching down. The crew had not applied or maintained into-wind aileron during the landing or landing roll and, despite the application of full rudder, could not keep the aircraft on the runway. The aircraft was off the paved surface for approximately 450 m. There was no damage to the aircraft or the airfield, and the crew were uninjured.

Following this incident, Safety Action was taken by the operator to introduce a crosswind limit for new co-pilots, and to include crosswind landing training in simulator sessions.
