NTSB Recommends New Procedures On Turbofan Rain And Hail Ingestion

Then Teach Pilots New Strategies To Avoid Dual Engine-Out Situations

In recommendations released on Wednesday, the National Transportation Safety Board recommends that the Federal Aviation Administration:

Complete the review of the current turbofan engine certification standards for rain and hail ingestion, and, if necessary, revise the standards in consideration of recent service experience and atmospheric data. (A-05-19)

Require that all turbofan engine and turbofan- powered aircraft manufacturers, working with operators of such aircraft, develop effective operational strategies and related guidance materials to minimize the chance of a dual-engine power loss; the FAA should then verify that these strategies and guidance materials are incorporated into operating manuals and training programs in a timely fashion. (A-05-20)
