17 Oct Fatal Accidents in Texas, Hawaii and Delaware Attributed to Loss of Power in One Engine
Innovative Solutions & Support Management to hold news conference at NBAA on October 21, at 2:00 PDT to highlight improved safety profile for twin engine planes fitted with patented ThrustSense® autothrottle technology
EXTON, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Innovative Solutions & Support, Inc. (NASDAQ: ISSC) has announced that at the NBAA National Convention on October 21, Tom Grunbeck, Autothrottle Program Director will be joined by Chairman and CEO, Geoffrey Hedrick to provide an overview of the risks of the loss of a single engine in a twin engine aircraft and how Innovative Solution & Support’s patented new technology – ThrustSense® – can mitigate the potentially catastrophic consequences of an engine out.
“Accidents over the past several months are the latest in the catastrophic consequences of losing use of an engine in a multi-engine aircraft,” observed Mr. Hedrick. “Our patented ThrustSense® technology was designed to mitigate this condition. With the loss of control in an engine-out condition, even some of the most experienced pilots may be unable to react accurately enough to restore and maintain control. With its proprietary technology, ThrustSense® identifies the engine out condition, even during the challenging periods of take-off, climb and landing, and responds by correctly adjusting power in the remaining engine to facilitate the uninterrupted control of the aircraft. By mitigating this dangerous condition, ThrustSense® can provide pilots an added layer of protection against the risk of an engine out.”
Innovative Solutions & Support will be showcasing its patented and certified ThrustSense® technology at NBAA in Las Vegas, Nevada, October 21 – 24, 2019.
Geoffrey Hedrick will provide a more thorough review of recent engine out incidents and further describe ThrustSense® technology at NBAA Media Day, October 21, at 2:00 Local Time, 5:00 PM Eastern Time. Reporters interested in an interview with Mr. Hedrick should contact Maureen Robertson at 610-646-0310 or [email protected]
