The Indonesian investigation concluded: The crashed Air Asia Airbus A320 crashed into the Java Sea on December 28 last year, less than halfway into a two-hour flight from Indonesia’s second-biggest city of Surabaya to Singapore. A flight control computer had a cracked solder joint that malfunctioned repeatedly, including four times during the flight, and 23 times the previous year.
Indonesian investigators said on Tuesday that crew action caused a loss of control and the stalling of an AirAsia passenger jet that crashed into the Java Sea last year, killing all 162 aboard.
The flight data recorder of AirAsia QZ8501 did not show any indication of weather condition affecting the aircraft.
Investigators found: The AirAsia maintenance system was not optimal but do not pinpoint single underlying cause.

Flight crew action resulted in the inability to control the aircraft, causing the aircraft to depart from the normal flight plan. The situation caused a prolonged stall condition that was beyond the capability of the flight crew to recover.
It appears budget carrier Air Asia may be at fault for lack of maintaining its aircrafts.
