  • NTSB to investigate trio of turbine crashes

    News | 04 Jul 2006 00:00

    <p>Three crashes involving turbine-powered aircraft that killed three pilots in the space of two days are being investigated by the US National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB). </p><p>On 24 June, a Pilatus PC-12, on a training flight from Big Timber, Montana, crewed by an instructor and the new aircraft’s owner, crashed about 1.5km (0.8nm) from the runway just after take-off. Both pilots were killed when the aircraft came down on a hillside and burst into flames. On the same day, an Aero Charter Services Cessna Citation Encore overran the 1,880m (6,160ft) runway 24 at Upland-Cable airfield, between Los Angeles and San Bernadino, California, and burst into flames. The two crew and single passenger survived. </p><p>On 25 June, a Mitsubishi Mu-2 twin turboprop came down soon after taking off from St Lucie airport, Florida. The pilot, a professional with an instructor rating who had filed an instrument flight rules flightplan to Murfreesboro, Tennessee, was the only person on board.

  • Mitsubishi Mu-2 goes under FAA’s microscope

    News | 04 Oct 2005 00:00

    <P>The US Federal Aviation Administration is carrying out a safety review of the Mitsubishi Mu-2 twin turboprop on the grounds that there has been an increase in the number of accidents involving the type in the last two years. Since the announcement a Mu-2 crashed on approach to West Memphis airport, Tennessee on 23 September.</P> <P>The FAA says it is not merely checking out the aircraft, the oldest of which were built in the early 1960s, but also the operators and the types of operation for which the aircraft is used, and is reviewing the recent accidents to see if there is an identifiable trend or common causal factor. The FAA says that most of the accidents involved “cheque-haulers” – overnight cargo carriers operating under FAR Part 135. The early Mu-2s were powered by Turbomeca Astazou engines, but most now have Garrett TPE331s. US National Transportation Safety Board information indicates there have been five fatal and five non-fatal accidents involving US-registered Mu-2s sinhttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Mitsubishi-Mu-2-goes-under-FAAs-microscope-201916/
