Special Airworthiness Information Bulletin (SAIB) CE-10-19

Wednesday, March 10th, 2010

FAA Bulletin for all GA Aircraft

This Special Airworthiness Information Bulletin (SAIB) advises the owners and operators of general aviation (GA) aircraft of and airworthiness concern, specifically the need to inspect properly and maintain the exhaust system to prevent carbon monoxide leakage into the cabin and to install a commercially available carbon monoxide detector in the cabin.

This SAIB is in response to a National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigation of an accident on December 17, 2000, where a Beech Model BE-23 aircraft impacted terrain killing the commercial-rated pilot, the sole occupant of the airplane. The NTSB determined the probable cause of the accident was in part “the pilot’s incapacitation due to carbon monoxide (CO) and a fractured muffler.”
