Safety Recommendation

The ATSB recommends that CASA consider providing formal advisory material for operators and pilots, based on relevant research and publications, about managing engine failures and other emergencies during takeoff in multi-engine aircraft below 5,700 kg MTOW. This material should include the factors to be considered by operators when developing procedures for responding to such emergencies.

Initial response
Date issued: 23 August 2004
Response from: Civil Aviation Safety Authority
Action status: Closed - Not Accepted
Response text:

CASA has reviewed this recommendation and considers it to be unrealistic given the large number of aircraft types involved and the sometimes unique characteristics and procedures associated with each type of aircraft. Plus
There are a number of publications currently available dealing with multi-engine training and the factors to be considered by operators when developing procedures for responding to emergencies. In addition, operators are required to produce appropriate procedures manuals that are reviewed by CASA.
