    Recently the FAA has come out with an Airworthy Directive AD against light Cessna twin aircraft flying in icing conditions. The FAA after approving these aircraft, since their original development, has now come out saying they are dangerous!

    Twin aircraft should not be flown in icing conditions even thought they were certified to do so!

    Unfortunately, flight twin aircraft have a high accident rate and insurance companies are reluctant to insure them.

    This is an interesting read as the FAA has now back peddled and has removed flight in icing conditions for thes light twin aircraft!!!Even thought they were approved?

    Anyone that has flown Multi engine aircraft know that the aircraft is vulnerable in the event an engine fails!

    When an engine fails the aircraft loses 80% of it’s performance. Icing conditions are another area where if an engine fails the aircraft will not hold altitude!

    The accident rates on these aircraft are high. Insurance companies are reluctant to give insurance and if they do the costs is excessive. Now that the FAA had come out with their ruling insurance is very limited for owners!
