Canada’s Safety Board Wants Caravan Limits

 - September 18, 2006, 10:12 AM

If Transport Canada decides to accept a recommendation from that country’s Transportation Safety Board (TSB), Canadian-registered Cessna Caravans would be prohibited from operating in moderate or severe icing. In March, the FAA adopted such a rule for all U.S.-registered Caravans. The TSB’s recommendation results from its investigation and study of several ice-related Caravan accidents in Canada, the U.S. and elsewhere.
