Premier I Overruns Runway in France

A Raytheon Premier I business jet operated by Spain-based Gestair overran the runway while landing at Deauville, France, on December 6 at about 1:20 p.m. local time. There were no injuries to the four occupants–two pilots and two passengers–and no damage to the airplane, according to Gestair. At Deauville Saint-Gatien airport, Runway 12/30 is 8,360 feet long. A source close to the French investigation told AIN that it was raining at the time of the incident. The wind was “gusty, quite strong, from the west-southwest,” so it was a partial crosswind. It is still unknown whether or not the spoilers deployed. Failure of ground spoilers to deploy caused at least six nonfatal overruns involving early models of the Premier I between 2002 and 2004. Since Raytheon Aircraft incorporated a fix, there had been no reported overruns involving Premiers.
