FAA wants MU-2B icing video to be mandatory

In an unusual move, the FAA has proposed an AD that would require pilots to view a new icing-awareness training video before they could serve as PIC of Mitsubishi MU-2Bs. The requirement would supplement a 1997 AD requiring MU-2B pilots to take an eight-hour training course about flying in icing conditions. The agency believes that special training is needed for MU-2B pilots to recognize operating problems and respond appropriately to decrease the chance of icing-related incidents due to pilot error. Training is offered by Turbine Aircraft Services in Texas, SimCom in Florida and some local FSDOs.
