SPECIAL STUDY U.S. GENERAL AVIATION ACCIDENTS INVOLVING FUEL STARVATION 1970 - 1972
The report analyzes fuel starvation accidents involving 29 selected makes and models of fixed-wing aircraft, which occurred in all operations of U.S. General Aviation from 1970 through 1972. Of the selected group, 12 aircraft were found to be more, or less, susceptible to fuel starvation than the others. Accidents involving these 12 aircraft were reviewed in detail to define the primary causes of fuel starvation and other associated causal factors. Chronic difficulties and influential factors, found in the accident file review and technical research were discussed with representatives of the Federal Aviation Administration and three manufacturers of general aviation aircraft. From these discussions, remedial measures to reduce the number of fuel starvation accidents were formulated.
