KUALA LUMPUR: The full transcript of the communication between the Kuala Lumpur Air Traffic Control Centre (KLATCC) and the missing MH370 has been made public.
It is part of the preliminary report on the missing jetliner released by the authority yesterday.
The communication was full of aviation jargon which an expert said was an ordinary thing.
There was nothing out of the ordinary and the communication seemed smooth, starting from the moment the jetliner was on the runway up to the point when MH370 said “goodnight Malaysian 370”.
There was hardly any interference except for a minor communication friction which could be attributed to irregular radio signals. The entire communication, from take-off to when the communication ended, seemed to be calm and in order.
According to AirAsia X First Officer Vickraman Manivasagan, the multiple code words that were shared throughout the recording, starting from the point before the Boeing moved on the runway until it took off, was based on regular procedure.
Explaining that words like “agosa” was a standard departure procedure commonly used for most northern easterly departures to “Igari” and flight routes, Vickraman said they were common requirements.
He explained that the pilots were required to report back to the control tower on their climb level every time they switched over to a different control frequency or enter the airspace of a different country.
The recording ends after MH370 communicated “Malaysian 370, maintaining level 350 (35,000 feet) and finally Goodnight Malaysian 370”.
