The August 9, 2007 Weekly Accident Update is now posted at <> .

"I think that if we want to continue as an industry, we have to admit to
ourselves that we don't have a liability problem. We have an accident
problem. The insurance companies and the rest of society will no longer
accept the accident rates that we've historically had in general

"In order for this industry to thrive, we absolutely have to cut down
our accidents. And the way to do it is to change the culture of general

FLYING LESSONS suggested by this week's report:

Lessons learned from Beech experience are universal. Consider them in
any make and model of airplane.

** A large throttle advance in a distracting or high-workload
environment may lead to a significant power loss if the throttle advance
is made from well lean of peak EGT (LOP) and the pilot does not (or does
not have time to) advance the mixture before opening the throttle.

** Pilots flying operations that require long descents (with naturally
aspirated engines) or large throttle movements in a high-workload
environment (MDA level-off, missed approach and/or specialized skills
such as formation flight) should consider returning the engine to rich
of peak (ROP) mixtures before beginning those operations, to prevent
excessively-lean engine roughness or failure when manifold pressure

** Do not attempt flight with a known landing gear problem, especially
if that flight includes rough-field operations in remote areas.

** Don't let plans for a big trip cloud your judgment about deferred
aircraft maintenance.


Airworthiness Directives (ADs) and Special Airworthiness Information
Bulletins (SAIBs) are going all-electronic. Starting as early as
September the FAA will no longer mail ADs and SAIBs to registered
aircraft owners or persons who subscribe to FAA AD/SAIB mailings. You
must register an email address with FAA to receive these vital safety

Visit the FAA's AD/SAIB
GL> registration site to sign up for updates. The process will take
several minutes. After you have accessed the site:

1. Follow all directions for registering.

2. When presented the list of manufacturers' products (even with
high-speed internet, it may take a minute or more for the list to
update), check the first box that appears and the entire list will

3. Go down the list and check the airplane, engine and propeller
types for which you'd like to receive ADs/SAIBs (by manufacturer and
precise model code).

4. Complete the registration process as directed.

ADs and SAIBs that apply to specific products will automatically be
emailed to you as they are issued. Example: A new magneto AD will be
sent to all who have requested ADs/SAIBs for the engine type that
normally has that model of magneto installed by the manufacturer.

If you modify your airplane, engine or propeller it appears there is no
way to request ADs for nonstandard installations through the email
system. Contact the STC holder or modification provider for its
guidance on how you can receive safety updates related to their


** Updates on the 1/14/2007 F35 off-airport landing near Sedona,
Arizona, the 7/21/2007 off-airport landing near Rockford, Illinois, and
an NTSB preliminary report on the 7/12/2007 Baron 58 gear collapse at
Northway, Alaska.

** A Be35's landing gear collapsed on landing..

** A Be36 landed gear up..

** The pilot of an A36 reported engine failure and force-landed on a

** A Duchess sustained a prop strike after landing..
