CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – A PSA Airlines flight landed safely at
Charlotte Douglas International Airport after the pilot was alerted
by a warning light.

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said
Wednesday that the flight with 58 passengers onboard was bound to
Charlotte from Birmingham, Ala., when the pilot reported a “flight
control failure” around 12:41 p.m. Bergen said the warning light
meant the Canadair Regional Jet’s spoilers didn’t deploy.

Bergen said the pilot requested no special handling from air
traffic control either before or after landing, and landed safely.

Once the aircraft landed, Bergen said aircraft maintenance
personnel performed a system reset, which indicated it was normal.
The flight continued to Lehigh Valley Airport in Pennsylvania.
