TSB Case closed . TSB file # A00A0066. Update: Company Maintenance reported that the engine remained at Maximum RPM after the left throttle cable broke during the Take Off. The Cable break was located within the control Pedestal area at the point where the Cable enters the housing. Update: Apr 20/2000. Maintenance indicated this was the first failure in this area of the control but have had cable failures in other areas. Also the first in-flight failure. An SDR will be submitted. UPDATE:. This engine shutdown, as a result of a broken throttle cable, was handled well by the instructor PIC, however he elected not to declare an emergency or request CFR stand by. It is recommended that in the event of an engine failure in a twin engine aircraft an emergency be declared to ensure the safety of the occupants should a control problem occur on landing.
