Autopilot error 737 9

Hi I departed LIMC for eggw @ 12,000ft I set the autopilot and I went to the toilet I came back a few minutes later to find my aircraft nose down in the ground .

Aircraft parameters where all within limits there is no reason for the uncontrolled descent

Please can a moderator look in to this for me

Many thanks


Did you get any violations?
And just for the record it is not a good idea to leave during critical times of flight.

This could have been because you were going to slow and you stalled. I also recommend what @WestJet737767 said, ormaybe take it with you.

Yes I got 6 violation

A/p at 12,000agl is not critical phrase

Vs was at 700+ speed 220kts
Flight attitude was as expected during initial climb

In a ideal world I would have took it with me but none of us live there unfortunately.

When you gotta go you gotta go

Contact a mod with your callsign and display name and they might be able to look into the logs to see what happened

Any idea which mod is active now

Levet might be able to look into it, I just saw him close a thread. Can’t tag him because that’s against the rules.


Here are all the active moderators:

As noted, you must not leave your app during your flight because it might cause issues like this one.

This would be a critical phase as this is still your initial climb, most people have had it happen to them, but I’d recommend staying until you reach your cruise altitude, I had it yesterday, luckily, I was there to stop it.
