The Ntsb Recommended FAA About AB300-600

Sun May 30, 2004 1:24 pm

The National Transportation Safety Board recommended the Federal Aviation Administration require the European aircraft maker to develop a more advanced rudder limiting system for its A300-600 family.

The safety board also asked the FAA to evaluate other passenger and cargo aircraft types to see if their flight control systems require similar changes.

The safety recommendation for Airbus is tied to an incident involving American Airlines Flight 903 over Florida in 1997 but grew out of the investigation of American Flight 587, an Airbus A300-600 that crashed in New York in 2001.

The safety board stressed the recommendation was not specific to the Flight 587 crash that killed 265 people. That probe centers partly on flight control sensitivity and rudder movements at much lower speeds.

I thought most planes already had that, isn't it called Yaw Damper?
Remember when sex was safe and flying was dangerous?
