Recommendation issued to: Saab Aircraft AB
|Date issued:||01 March 2001|
|Safety action status:|

'The Australian Transport Safety Bureau recommends that Saab advise operators that use of autopilot modes that do not include IAS mode will not afford protection against penetration of the required stall margins.
|Date issued:||30 August 2005|
|Response from:||Saab Aircraft AB|
|Action status:||Closed - Accepted|
In both AFM and AOM published by Saab Aircraft AB it is advised
about using IAS mode when being in icing condition with ice on the
airframe, see appendix 2. In 1991 an Operational Bulletin was
issued about this and later incorporated in AOM.
