Bombardier release Flight Operations Service Letter
Please be aware that Bombardier have recently issued a Flight Operations Service Letter (FOSL) to ALL operators of Bombardier Dash 8 Q100, 200 & 300 aircraft. To view the document please click on the hyperlink below.
This FOSL document has been released after lengthy investigation into possible causes of "Bar Lift" occurring in the commutator of the Goodrich manufactured DC Starter Generator Part Number 23088-008 when fitted in the APU position.
In order to avoid catastrophic failure of the APU Starter Generator it is advised that all guide lines detailed in the FOSL document are followed.
We strongly suggest that you ensure this information is passed to your engineering department and all pilots working with these aircraft types.
Please feel free to contact me for further details or clarification.
