Product Description

 

Question 1


A corporate pilot requested approval to pay to either have the corporation's jet brought into an FBO's hangar overnight to protect it from a snowfall at a stop away from the crew's home base or to have it de-iced by the FBO the following morning before scheduled departure. Both requests were denied by the pilot's employer because of the cost. So early the following morning, the corporate pilot was up on the wing of the jet sweeping off an accumulation of snow in preparation for departure with a load of executives, and slipped and fell to the ground, suffering a broken neck.

If the corporation has not provided workers'compensation insurance for its flight crewmembers:

Question 45 pts

A ramp worker newly-employed by an FBO is instructed to "top the tanks" of a transient aircraft. Seeing the word "turbo" on the engine cowlings, the ramp worker interprets that to mean that these are turbine engines, so tops the aircraft's tanks with jet fuel. The owner/pilot returns and, appearing to be in a big rush, pays for the fuel, boards the aircraft, starts the engines and departs without conducting a preflight inspection of the aircraft. Shortly after takeoff, the jet fuel destroys the aircraft's turbocharged piston engines and the aircraft crashes, severely injuring the pilot and further damagin the aircraft.

In ensuing litigation brought by the owner/pilot in a court in a contributory negligence state, a jury should find that:

Question 65 ptsRegional Airline Corporation (RAC) operates a fleet of aircraft powered by turbine engines manufactured by Pratt & Whitney Corporation (PWC). RAC's director of maintenance is approached by a PWC representative with an offer to perform the scheduled maintenance on RAC's engines at a price that is significantly less than RAC's current cost of performing the maintenance in-house with its own personnel.

What level of RAC corporate management should make the decision on whether to contract with PWC for this service or keep the function in house? Show your reasoning.

Question 75 pts

In the course of an annual inspection, an aircraft owner/pilot is advised by an A&P mechanic employed by the shop that compression on the aircraft's single engine is below the minimum required. The mechanic recommends the aircraft owner authorize an engine overhaul. The overhaul would cost about $20,000.

The aircraft owner discusses the matter with the owner of the repair shop, reminding the owner what a good friend and customer the aircraft owner has been over the years, but expressing remorse that the overhaul is unaffordable, so the aircraft must be sold. The aircraft owner asks the shop owner, who holds FAA Inspection Authorization (IA), to sign off the annual inspection to facilitate the sale. To accomodate the friend and long-time customer, the IA signs off the annual inspection in the aircraft and engine logbooks, showing the engine's compression to be within limits.

The aircraft owner later shows these logbooks to a prospective buyer. When the prospective buyer later asks the IA about the aircraft's condition, the IA repeats the false compression figures. Based on the logbooks and the IA's oral statement, the propect buys the airplane, but shortly thereafter discovers the compression problem that will cost about $20,000 to fix.

The General Aviation Revitalization Act of 1994 (GARA) was intended to enable U.S. manufacturers of general aviation aircraft to compete against their foreign counterparts by relieving U.S general aviation aircraft manufacturers of:

Question 165 pts

A 4-seat single-engine very light jet (VLJ) crashed due to the failure of its single engine shortly after takeoff, injuring the pilot and a passenger. The cause of the engine failure was the catastrophic failure of a turbine wheel in the engine's compressor section due to a hidden metalurgical flaw.

The VLJ's first owner, a charter operator, purchased the aircraft from its manufacturer 6 years ago, then sold the aircraft to a private individual for personal use 3 years later. The private owner replaced one of the engines after it was damaged by ingesting foreign objects a year before the accident, purchasing the replacement engine directly from the engine manufacturer. That replacement engine is the one that failed, causing the injuries.

Who is potentially liable for the injuries?
