NTSB Safety Recommendations A-10-129 and -130

 

************************************************************

 

The National Transportation Safety Board recommends that the

Federal Aviation Administration:

 

Require Eurocopter to review the design of the fuel flow

control lever (FFCL) and/or its detent track on AS350-series

helicopters and require modification to ensure that the FFCL

is protected to prevent unintentional movement out of its

detents and that it does not move easily to an unintended

position. (A-10-129)

 

Evaluate other helicopters with fuel flow control levers

(FFCL) and detent tracks similar in design to those on

Eurocopter AS350-series helicopters and require

modification, as necessary, to ensure that the FFCL is

protected to prevent unintentional movement out of its

detents and that it does not move easily to an unintended

position. (A-10-130)
