The complete engine from the Cessna Grand Caravan that crashed off Kalaupapa has been recovered by salvage crews, the owner of Makani Kai Air said Wednesday afternoon.

The thing is. When they pulled it out of the water. The word Dodge was visible on the top.
I wonder if the Coroner will drop dead from arsenic poisoning as LA Coroner technician, Michael Cormier, did the day his office released the Breitbart autopsy report.
You cannot be an air carrier operating over water, at night, or beyond a 50 nm raduis in a single engine airplane as an air carrier under FAA Part 121 certification. (or part 122, it's been a long-long time for me)
The article has an incident wrong: Loretta Fuddy did not die during the crash — she died afterwards, floating on the ocean wearing a life jacket.
“The thing is. When they pulled it out of the water. The word Dodge was visible on the top.”
Careful, I resemble that remark, being a multiple Dodge owner. I still love that 318 V8 which just kept on running, running, running....
This regulation applies to private and noncommon carriage when such operations are conducted in airplanes having 20 or more seats (excluding crewmembers) or having a payload capacity of 6,000 pounds or more. There must also be operations specifications issued to the operator which include the following information: Kinds of operations authorized Types of aircraft and registration numbers of the airplanes authorized for use Approval of the provisions of the operators manual relating to airplane inspections, together with the necessary conditions and limitations Registration numbers of the airplanes that are to be inspected under an approved airplane inspection program (AAIP) under §125.247 Procedures for the control of weight and balance of airplanes Any other item that the administrator determines is necessary Just as in part 121, subpart (E) identifies special airworthiness requirements dealing mostly with the mechanical devices of the aircraft.
14 CFR Part 135 Operating Requirements: Commuter and On Demand Operations and Rules Governing Persons on Board Such Aircraft As the title of this section states, this regulation is applicable to short distance commercial aircraft operations or commuters and nonscheduled carriers that operate on demand. These aircraft are frequently referred to as air taxi or air charter aircraft. Preceding the regulation are several SFARs.
One of these, SFAR 36, is of interest to the technician because, although it is linked here directly to part 135, it is also linked in the text to parts 121 and 145. The significance of SFAR 36 is that it allows for a company with sufficient engineering and certification personnel to perform major repairs on products it is authorized to work on, without having the technical data approved by the FAA Administrator.
The question to ask is "What FAR are local government flight operations required to be certificated under?
Well now, ain't that just too convenient?
A very critical point.
“And correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t a Caravan a single(centerline) line of thrust twin engine airplane?”
I’ll correct you1 The Caravan is a single engine high-wing turboprop. You are thinking of the Cessna Skymaster which was a CLT Twin.
“Airplanes Having a Seating Capacity of 20 or More Passengers “
The 208 is an 9 passenger aircraft with 1 pilot.
This administration makes the Clinton's look like Saints.
Interesting you bring Barry Seal up. I wonder if his family ever settled their case with the cia
Up to 14 with waivers.
(Over 6,000 lbs.)
“(or) having a payload capacity of 6,000 pounds or more.”
It’s only got a 2,800 lb payload. Full seats would mean about enough fuel to fly a touch-n-go. Fuel = 6lbs a gallon. Each person means 30 gallons less fuel.
The sentence was written in the context of meaning the whole event related to the crash of the aircraft, including the events which took place after the aircraft ditched in the sea.
But that was decades ago.
I think we’re looking at an 119.21 operation. I don’t know their operation or flight areas.
I departed Wilmington Delaware once in a Cherokee in the middle of August with five persons plus pilot and four sets of golf clubs with full fuel. I used all 8,000 feet of a 10,000 foot runway and had an initial rate of climb of 100 feet per minute without stalling. The passengers thanked me when we got to their destination, for the lovely scenic view of the bay as we left because we were as low as the sailboat masts. After I burned off enough fuel and got into some cooler air I managed to squeeze out about 400 feet per minute. It took me half way to Charlotte NC to get to my filed altitude of 4,500’. If only they knew?
Nope, a 119.21 operation applies to Alaska islands only.
I’m betting a 135. Any tail numbers released?
~~~she died afterwards, floating on the ocean wearing a life jacket.~~~
Ah, so she survived the landing. Interesting.
Is there anything else pertinent? Inquiring minds want to know.
Prolly why it didn’t need a hunnerd hour inspection......:o)
“...but Fuddy “remained in the fuselage of the plane,” Honolulu Fire Capt. Terry Seelig told KHON-TV. “It’s always a difficult situation when you’re not able to get everybody out.”
The first reports said she was in the water, her assistant helped her get into her life jacket, she was floating there talking to him and then she became unresponsive.
I think she probably died of natural causes. It’s possible, I suppose, that the plane was tampered with in hopes of taking them all down (her assistant, also on the plane, was also involved with the BC matter). However, I think the most likely thing is simply that the plane was overloaded and just went down.
I’ve been on that flight, and it’s a very tiny plane that has to fly over a very rough terrain and rough ocean with lots of unpredictable winds and conditions.
The Slant 6 was the winner of its era.
I believe the LA Times has inaccurate information, unless the man who was holding her hand when she died was wrong.
