I always maintained that we were out of ways to auger in an aircraft, turns out I was wrong. I just worry about how many previous accidents could be attributed to the exact same failure.
If I was still an aircraft owner, this would worry me to death.
Well, the design requirement for that specific piece of aircraft equipment is pretty vague, they don't always have the best quality control. I've never seen an STC'd/PMA'd one, so perhaps is just the OEMs who install them. In any case, it's still a design requirement that an aircraft be flyable and landable without electrical power, so you wouldn't think that should be a reported factor in an accident!
