NTSB Issues Safety Recommendation On B757/767 Procedures

NTSB Safety Recommendations A-09-41 and -42

The National Transportation Safety Board recommends that the Federal Aviation Administration:

Require the Boeing Airplane Company to revise its 757/767 procedures and training for addressing an illuminated Standby Power Bus OFF light, to include specific steps to take so that complete loss of battery power is avoided. These steps should include landing at the nearest suitable airport before the power is depleted and actions to take if landing is not possible. (A-09-41)

Once Boeing Airplane Company has revised its procedures and training per Safety Recommendation A-09-41 for addressing an illuminated Standby Bus Power OFF light without depleting the main battery, require all operators of 757/767 airplanes to adopt these procedures. (A-09-42)
