Turbocharger Trouble by ProQuest


Back then, the NTSB had been investigating a 1992 incident involving a Cessna T210L, which experienced a partial loss of engine power and crashed short of the runway in an attempted emergency landing at Temple Bar, Ariz. In the Safety Recommendation issued on May 13, 2008, the FAA is asked to require manufacturers of aircraft equipped with engine turbo chargers to amend their POHs and airplane flight manuals to include an "Emergency Procedures" section with information regarding turbocharger failure and, specifically, procedures for minimizing hazards relating to in-flight fire and/or loss of engine power. The NTSB determined that the probable cause of this accident was the loss of engine power due to the failure of the aft clamp connecting the turbocharger compressor outlet to the intercooler ducting, resulting in reduced aircraft performance during takeoff.
