  • FAA Adopts Brazil's ERJ Icing System AD
    Posted by Sean Broderick 5:38 PM on Mar 25, 2010

    FAA Thursday issued an immediately adopted AD (AD 2010-07-04) warning Embraer ERJ 170 and 190 operators of a fault that could inhibit automatic activation of engine inlet anti-icing systems.

    Operators must revise the airplane flight manual (AFM) limitations section to prohibit airplane dispatch when a certain fault code is displayed unless the code is verified as being accurate. 

    The AD is virtually identical to one issued by Brazil's ENAC--and brought to the attention of TAT readers--in January.
