FAA issues emergency AD on Eclipse 500 throttle

Following the Eclipse 500 VLJ incident reported earlier, the FAA has overnight issued an emergency AD on the type. It’s a real ‘emergency’ emergency AD. You can’t fly the aeroplane again until you’ve done the checks and made the amendments – and of course depending on what you find in the checks you may have a grounded aeroplane on your hands.

This sort of thing happens of course and the world gets over it. But in the embryonic VLJ world the regulatory sensitivity is huge. Good luck to all concerned.
