  • EASA Grounds Dassault Falcon 7X
    Posted by Sean Broderick 6:53 PM on May 26, 2011

    EASA has grounded Dassault Falcon 7Xs following an runaway pitch trim incident that investigators so far can't explain. Dassault recommended the move following the incident, which was not detailed in the emergency airworthiness directive announcing the grounding. Said EASA:

    A Falcon 7X experienced an uncontrolled pitch trim runaway during descent. The crew succeeded in recovering a stable situation and performed an uneventful landing.

    More to come following Dassault's findings from its probe of the incident.
