AIRCRAFT FLIGHT OPPERATIONS IN IMC OR NIGHT CONDITIONS
Malfunction of a dry air pump or other pneumatic system component while flying In Instrument Meteorological Conditions (IMC), or at night without visual reference to the horizon and ground, can cause spatial disorientation and or loss of control. This can result in death, bodily injury, or property damage. Aircraft operating in these conditions must have a functional standby pneumatic source installed or a backup electric attitude gyro instrument. The pilot must be familiar with standby operations and have tested its function prior to entering IMC or night conditions. An annunciator light to warn of system failure is also recommended. If a pneumatic system has failed it must be repaired before conducting any future flights in IMC or night conditions. Installation of components or repairs of a pneumatic system must be functionally tested before the aircraft is operated in Instrument Meteorological Conditions (IMC), or at night without visual reference to the horizon and ground.
AIRCRAFT BRAKE INSTALLATION AND USE
Excessive brake pedal pressure, especially in aircraft equipped with a tail wheel, can cause the aircraft to loose control or overturn. In addition taxing with continued brake pedal pressure can result in loss of brake function, damage to the brake assemblies or even fire. The above conditions can possibly result in death, bodily injury, or property damage.
When installing brake linings be sure to check aircraft maintenance manual for proper torque value of back plate bolts. Over torqueing can damage brake cylinders. After installing new brake linings or new brake discs the installer must confirm that the wheel assemblies rotate freely while properly jacked above the ground. If they do not turn freely the aircraft must not be returned to service until the problem has been resolved. Failure to do so can cause loss of aircraft control, reduced take off performance, or fire, possibly resulting in death, bodily injury, or property damage.
