Governor Failure

The key to successfully dealing with a failure of a fuel control governing system is a thorough knowledge of the airframe system. Most models do not provide for a method of practicing the failure which requires the pilot to have an even more in-depth knowledge of the system and emergency procedure. The EuroSafety ground school presentations provide for a thorough knowledge base of the systems by presenting the information through computer generated graphics, animations, videos and the ESI Systems Manual.

The AS350B3 2B, AS355N and EC135 models provide for a method of inducing a governor failure to allow the pilot to practice the emergency procedures. As with all emergency procedure training the goal is to build proficiency and confidence in performing the procedure. In models that allow for governor training, EuroSafety exposes the pilots to the failure in various segments of flight and completes the maneuver to a full touchdown landing.
