2017 FAA COS SLSA report

Postby Izzy » Thu May 31, 2018 9:17 am

Good morning to all,

Admin please remove if the 2017 FAA COS SLSA report has been posted or discussed previously.

A while back I stumbled across the 2017 FAA COS SLSA report - https://www.faa.gov/aircraft/gen_av/lig ... SA_COS.pdf.

The information is presented starting with a general overview and then get's manufacturer and even incident specific towards the end of the report. I found quite a few interesting facts as to number of incidents in specific phase of flights and also manufacturer specific incident numbers.

I hope you all find this to be an interesting read.

Thanks for posting this. At first glance, it appears several of the AMD 601XL fatal accidents included in the stats occurred prior to the mandated 2010 structural upgrades, which would seem to skew the numbers significantly. The unexplained pre-2010 mid-air breakups are undeniable, but airplanes with the airframe modifications completed have an enviable safety record.
