NTSB to look into Embraer Phenom 100 landing issue

Flightglobal reports that the NTSB will look into a landing incident earlier this month in Texas, where a Phenom 100 skidded off the runway, damaging a landing-gear strut and wing light with no injuries.

Embraer said earlier this year it would re-evaluate pilot training on the brake-by-wire system of the jet following to previous landing incidents that resulted in blown tires. That company investigation, according to the Flightglobal report, considered mechanical issues, such as the brake lines and control units, as well as pilot training.

The magazine’s report notes that the NTSB involvement begins an official safety inquiry into the braking system of the Phenom 100. Embraer told Flightglobal that it supports the investigation as an advisor to Cenipa, the Brazilian equivalent.
