FAA and NASA conduct crash test on a Fokker F-28

FAA and NASA conduct crash test on a Fokker F-28

The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and National Aeronautics & Space Administration (NASA) performed a crashworthiness test on a Fokker F-28 aircraft at the Landing and Impact Research Facility at NASA’s Langley Research Facility in Hampton, VA on Thursday, June 20, 2019.

The Fokker F-28 is a regional jet that is used on short to medium-haul flights to transport passengers from hubs to regional airports. A crashworthiness test was conducted to advance safety research on the structural performance of this style, design and materials for this size of aircraft.

NASA conducted a swing test and simulation of a narrow-body transport fuselage section of the Fokker F-28. The test simulated an aircraft crash onto a dirt surface. Data from the test are used by the FAA to develop guidance on how to determine crashworthiness of various aircraft. The data also help researchers ascertain how portions of the cabin interior and occupants of the aircraft react in a crash. Twenty-four test dummies ranging from small children to adults, one weighing approximately 273 pounds were used in this aircraft test.

Test results will also support the development of a new performance-based rule that will simplify the certification process by eliminating or minimizing the use of special conditions to certify aircraft.

The aircraft used in the test was a Fokker F-28 Fellowship 1000 that first flew in 1972. The last operator was Canadian Regional Airlines (C-GCRN), which owned the aircraft from 1998 to 2001.

FAA issues Notam prohibiting flights over parts of Persian Gulf and Gulf of Oman

The U.S. FAA issued a NOTAM warning U.S. pilots that flights are not permitted in the overwater area of the Tehran Flight Information Region, Iran, until further notice, due to heightened military activities and increased political tensions.

FAA proposes $715,438 civil penalty against Allegiant Air

FAA proposes $715,438 civil penalty against Allegiant Air

The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes a $715,438 civil penalty against Allegiant Air for allegedly operating an aircraft on more than two dozen flights following improper engine maintenance.

In October 2017, Allegiant asked the FAA if it could deactivate an MD-80’s functioning automatic reverse thrust system when the aircraft engine’s exhaust gas temperature exceeds normal limits. The FAA in December 2017 responded that deactivating that system would be improper unless the system caused the excess temperature, because the temperature exceedance could have other causes.

The FAA alleges that on April 13, 2018, the exhaust gas temperature of an Allegiant MD-88 engine exceeded normal limits while the plane was taking off from Roanoke Blacksburg Regional Airport in Virginia for Orlando Sanford International Airport in Florida. When this occurs, the MD-80 maintenance manual calls for turning off the automatic reverse thrust system, finding the cause of the excess temperature, and correcting the cause before turning the system on again.

Allegiant, however, did not determine the cause of the excess temperature, the FAA alleges. Instead, the carrier deactivated the system on April 14, 2018, and installed an inoperative placard on it.

Between April 14, 2018, and April 22, 2018, Allegiant operated the MD-88 on 28 passenger-carrying flights without determining the cause of the excessive engine exhaust gas temperature, the FAA alleges. As a result, Allegiant violated the terms of its FAA-issued operations specifications, the agency alleges.

Allegiant has 30 days after receiving the FAA’s enforcement letter to respond to the agency.
