  • Concern

    • FAA’s growing concern over numerous reports of smoke/ fumes in cockpit/cabin

    • FAA data analysis indicates numerous events not being reported

    • Secretary of Transportation interest and concern has prompted FAA to issue new policy


Smoke in the cockpit1

Smoke in the Cockpit

Regulation – Required Reports

  • 121, 135, 125 Service Difficulty Reporting - 91 Subpart K Mechanical Reliability Reports

    • Each certificate holder shall report . . .

      • An aircraft component that causes accumulation or circulation of smoke, vapor, or toxic or noxious fumes in the crew compartment or passenger cabin during flight


Smoke in the cockpit2

Smoke in the Cockpit

New Guidance – FSAW 06-05

  • Applicability

    • Principal Inspectors – Airworthiness (PIs) assigned to 121, 135, 125, 91 Subpart K

  • Purpose

    • Provide PIs guidance to follow-up notification of smoke/fumes in cockpit/cabin events

    • Required Program Tracking and Reporting System (PTRS) reporting will allow FAA to further analyze and trend these events


Smoke in the cockpit3

Smoke in the Cockpit

New Guidance – FSAW 06-05

  • PIs Requirements

    • Determine adequacy of air carrier’s procedures for reporting, investigating, corrective action and follow up of events

    • PI follow up each event to determine programs are working as intended and effective

    • PIs PTRS entry for each event


Smoke in the cockpit4

Smoke in the Cockpit

New Guidance – FSAW 06-05

  • Events PIs must report (PTRS)

    • All events (reported by certificate holder or other) of smoke/fumes in cockpit/cabin while aircraft is in operation * to include:

      • All legitimate or erroneous reports

      • Whether a discrepancy actually existed or returned to service with no faults found

        * In operation means period from the moment the aircraft pushes off the gate for flight until it return to the gate from flight.

Smoke in the Cockpit

New Guidance – Flight Standards Airworthiness Information Bulletin (FSAW) 06-05

  • PIs review of Certificate Holders Procedures

    • Continuing Analysis Surveillance System

      • Proper investigation of smoke/fume events to detect and correct deficiencies in programs

    • SDR Reporting

      • Complete, accurate data

      • Submitted to FAA within certain timeframe


Smoke in the cockpit6

Smoke in the Cockpit

New Guidance – FSAW 06-05

  • PTRS Required Entries

    • Date and time of event

    • Aircraft Make/Model/Series

    • Flight Number

    • Originating/destination city

    • If crew declared an emergency

    • City flight diverted to (if applicable)

    • If emergency evacuation occurred

Smoke in the Cockpit

New Guidance – FSAW 06-05

  • PTRS Required Entries cont.

    • Discrepancy (Specific language, i.e., smoke, fumes, odor, fire, etc.)

    • ATA two digit system code

    • Corrective action (To include no fault found or could not duplicate)

    • Air carrier action to prevent event from recurring
