  • Pilots warned over upper wing ice

    News | 11 Jan 2005 00:00

    <p>US National Transportation Safety Board issues alert that no amount of accumulation is safe for take-off</p> <p>Pilots are being warned that minute amounts of ice on a wing upper surface can cause severe aerodynamic and control penalties. The US National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has issued the alert as it investigates the November fatal crash of a Bombardier Challenger 604 on take-off from Montrose, Colorado.</p> <p>The NTSB says atmospheric conditions conducive to upper wing surface ice accumulation existed at the time of the Montrose accident, and that the aircraft had not been de-iced. The alert also follows the December publication of safety recommendations stemming from an NTSB review of 26 Cessna 208 Caravan icing-related accidents and incidents from 1987 to 2003.</p> <p>&quot;The bottom line is that pilots should be aware that no amount of snow, ice or frost accumulation on the wing upper surface can be considered safe for take-off,&quot; says the NTSB.

  • Report weakens airport campaign

    News | 31 Aug 1998 23:00

    <p>First, the good news. According to an official report, most of the runways in the US national airport system are in good to excellent condition. The bad news is that this may not be good for the airports. </p> <p>It will not be good news if the report, compiled by the US General Accounting Office, leads to a complacency that could ultimately prove expensive. According to the GAO, the cost of keeping those runways in good condition over the next 10 years will exceed the $162 million historically spent each year on maintenance under the Federal Aviation Administration's Airport Improvement Programme (AIP). And repairing runways once they have fallen into disrepair is much more costly. </p> <p>It is also not good news - at least not for the many airport managers who are anxious to see funding increased - because the report has been delivered to the chairman of the Senate commerce and transportation committee, Senator John McCain. Its sense of non-urgency will dull the edge of the Airhttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Report-weakens-airport-campaign-40956/
