The Canadian TSB is concerned that, despite best efforts by the industry and regulators alike to reduce the number of flap failures in the Canadair CRJ fleet, that number is increasing. It has been shown that a CRJ flap failure has the potential to lead to a much more serious incident or an accident. The Board requests that the Canadian Minister of Transport advise the Board of its action plan, both short and long term, to substantially decrease the number of flap failures on CRJ aircraft. The Board will continue to monitor this safety issue. (TSB)
