Part 1 - OEB Report

1. Executive Summary

During the period of September 20, to November 21, 2008, Transport Canada and EASA conducted a joint operational evaluation (JOE) of the Cessna Citation 560 XLS+.

Beginning with aircraft serial number 560-6001, Cessna introduced a modified configuration of the Citation 560 XLS as the new production aircraft. The older Citation 560 XLS configuration will be discontinued and the new production configuration is marketed as the 560 XLS+.  As stated, the Citation 560 XLS+ is not a new aircraft but an upgrade of a certified aircraft that has been in service for several years.  Both the 560XL and the 560XLS aircraft are listed on TCCA Type Certificate Data Sheet (TCDS) A-130 and they share the same model number.  The nomenclature 560XL, 560XLS, and 560XLS+ will be used in this report to distinguish between the Cessna Citation 560 variants. 

Since the most restrictive training, checking, and currency differences are proposed at Level C/C/C, Cessna has requested that all the benefits associated with Same Type Rating be granted to the 560XLS+.  The application also proposed Operator Differences Requirements (ODR) tables to identify the training checking and currency requirements for pilots transitioning from one of the three variants to another.

The Transport Canada / EASA joint operational evaluation was conducted in accordance with the procedures described in the Common Procedures Document (CPD) for Conducting Operational Evaluation Boards dated 10 June, 2004.

This report details the findings of the joint operational evaluation board (JOEB) and accepts Cessna’s proposal that the 560XL, 560XLS, and the 560XLS+ should share the same type rating.  This report will help Canadian commercial air operators in the development of training programs and Principal Operations Inspectors (POI) in the approval of operator training programs pursuant to Canadian Aviation Regulations Part VII Subpart 4.

2. Purpose and Applicability

The primary purpose of this report is to specify Transport Canada master training, checking, and currency requirements applicable to crews operating the Cessna 560XL, 560XLS, and 560XLS+ aircraft.  This report will help commercial air operators in the development of training programs and POIs in the approval of operator training programs pursuant to Canadian Aviation Regulations Part VII Subpart 4.  Provisions of this report are effective until amended, superseded, or withdrawn by subsequent operational evaluation determinations.

This report does not address the operation of this aircraft under a CAR 604 Canadian Business Aircraft Association Private Operator Certificate.

4. Background

Transport Canada (TCCA) Type Certificate Data Sheet (TCDS) A-130 identifies the Citation 560XLS (serial number 560-5501 and on).

The 560XL, 560XLS, and XLS+ are all metal, pressurized, low-wing, turbofan-powered aircraft. Thrust is provided by two pod-mounted PW545 A / B / C turbofan engines manufactured by Pratt and Whitney Canada, Inc.  Each engine delivers 4119 lb. of thrust at sea level.  Engine-driven hydraulic pumps supply hydraulic power for extending and retracting the landing gear, wing flaps, air brakes, thrust reversers, and to operate the stabilizer.  Lateral and directional trim is accomplished by mechanically actuated trim tabs installed on the left aileron and the rudder.  Longitudinal trim is accomplished by mechanically or electrically changing the angle of the trim tabs on the trailing edge of each elevator.  Aircraft environmental systems provide heating, cooling, and pressurization for the crew and passengers.

The 560XLS+ aircraft is capable of maintaining a cruise speed of up to 0.75 Mach.  The aircraft maximum operating altitude is 45,000 ft.  The maximum operating range is 1858 nm (3441 km) with full fuel, maximum takeoff weight and IFR reserves.

The FAA in their evaluation identified that transitioning from the 560XL or 560XLS to the Pro Line 21 equipped 560XLS+ can be addressed by differences training.  As of the date of signing this report, the final FSB report has not been completed.  The draft FSB report indicates the minimum training requirements are satisfied at Level C. 

The FAA FSB Chairman is a qualified 560XL captain.  Accordingly, he evaluated the differences course provided by Flight Safety Wichita from the 560XL and 560XLS to the 560XLS+.   The representatives from EASA and TCCA received an initial 560XLS+ course and subsequently they evaluated the differences training to the 560XLS and 560XL respectively.

This operational evaluation is primarily based on a 560XLS+ to 560XL differences ground and simulator training provided by Flight Safety.  The training requirements for the transition to the 560XLS have been included under cooperation between TCCA and EASA.  The ground school was conducted in Wichita, while the simulator training for the 560XL was conducted at the Flight Safety Columbus facility.  Operational Suitability flights were conducted on the 560 XLS+ aircraft between Wichita and Columbus.  The Flight training consisted of 5 landings with one ILS approach, followed by a GPS approach, an engine failure on take off with single engine landing followed by a partial flap landing.   The aircraft was then flown from Wichita to Columbus for 560XL simulator training.   

5. Pilot "Type Rating" Requirements

With reference to Canadian Aviation Regulation  CAR 401.06 a new pilot type rating is assigned to the Cessna Citation 560XL and the designated licence endorsement is: C56XL.  This operational evaluation, with the consensus of the FAA and EASA, has determined that the same type rating can be awarded and that the 560XLS+ should share the C56XL licensing designator with the older production aircraft.    The Canadian Type Certificate Data Sheet (A-130) for the C56XL specifies the needs for one pilot and one copilot.  The issuance of a type rating would require a completion of a Pilot Proficiency Check for Commercial Operations in accordance with CASS 421.40(3)(a)(iii)(A).  Due to the design of this aircraft, the type shall not be eligible for PPC grouping in accordance with CAR Part VII.  The concept of grouping is not applicable in the context of the three variants as they are the same type-rating.

6. Master Common Requirements (MCRs)

The new 560XLS+ differs from the 560XL and 560XLS primarily in the following manner.

  • Immediate Action items are identical for both aircraft
  • Abnormal and emergency procedures are presented in Quick Reference Handbooks (QRH).  The QRH’s for the  three variant aircraft share an identical presentation format and direct the pilots to carry out emergency or abnormal procedures in a methodical and structured manner.
  • None of the 3 variant aircraft are equipped with a forward observer’s seat.  Checking should be conducted in a   full motion simulator with an observer seat that provides the check pilot a suitable view of the flight deck for the purpose of checking. 
  • Compliance with CASS 720.16(2)(a) for the extension of duty day with an additional crew member cannot be demonstrated because of the lack of a forward observer's seat on the flight deck or suitable forward passenger seat.
  • normal final landing flap setting is the same for all variants
  • handling and performance are similar for all aircraft with a slight variance in V speeds
  • pilot operation of the primary flight controls is the same for all variants
  • take off climb descent and approach profiles are the same for all variants
  • incorporation of the Collins Pro Line 21 avionics package
  • full authority digital engine controls including a new throttle quadrant
  • modified instrument panel
  • replacement of toggle switches with 2 position switch lights
  • repositioned electrical, air conditioning, pressurization and other controls

7. Master Difference Requirements (MDRs)

Master Difference Requirements (MDRs) for the 560XL, 560XLS, and the 560XLS+ are shown in the table below.  The requirements apply to operators whose crews operate 2 or 3 variants, or apply for conversion between variants.  The Difference Level Definitions (e.g. A/A/A) are specified in accordance with the criteria contained in, Common Procedures Document for Operational Evaluation Board (OEB) FAA - JAA - TCCA where the first letter refers to training requirements, the second to checking requirements, and the third to currency requirements.

Level C differences training is the highest level required for the 560XL, 560XLS, and the 560XLS+.  It is the responsibility of the operator and the training facility to ensure pilots moving from one variant to the other are given sufficient training to become fully cognizant of the differences in flight deck layout and avionics controls

** The currency level for flight crews, who are trained and qualified in both the CE 560XL/XLS and the CE-560XLS+, or who are engaged in mixed fleet flying, is Level C if they have not operated the CE-560XLS+ in the preceding 180 days.  If flight crews have not operated the CE-560XLS+ in the preceding 180 days, operators and training providers must ensure they receive the minimum training required by this report to re-establish currency in the CE-560XLS+ avionics system and FMS.  If flight crews have operated the CE-560XLS+ in the preceding 180 days and have retained systems proficiency with the Pro Line 21 System and the FMS, the currency level will be Level B.

*** The currency level for flight crews, who are trained and qualified in CE-560XLS+ and the CE 560XL/XLS, or who are engaged in mixed fleet flying, is Level C if they have not operated the CE-560XL/XLS in the preceding 180 days.  If flight crews have not operated the CE-560XL/XLS in the preceding 180 days, operators and training providers must ensure they receive the minimum training required by this report to reestablish currency in the CE-560XL/XLS avionics system and FMS.  If flight crews have operated the CE-560XL/XLS in the preceding 180 days and have retained systems proficiency with the Honeywell Avionics System and applicable FMS, the currency level will be Level B.

8. Acceptable "Operator Difference Requirements" (ODRs) Tables

ODR tables are used to show an operator's compliance method.  Acceptable ODR tables for operators conducting mixed fleet flying (MFF) operations, or operators converting between one of the 3 variants, begin on page 14.  MFF is defined as operations in which crews alternately fly 2 or 3 variants between PPC /training events. 

The ODR tables represent an acceptable means to comply with MDR provisions for the aircraft evaluated based on those differences and compliance methods shown.  The tables do not necessarily represent the only acceptable means of compliance for operators with aircraft having other differences, where compliance methods (e.g., devices, simulators, etc.) are different, or for combinations of aircraft not evaluated.  For operators flying variants, which are the same as the aircraft used for the ODR table development, and using the same compliance methods, the ODR tables have been found acceptable by TCCA.  Equivalent tables, therefore, may be approved by the POI for a particular operator.

Operators flying variants with differences not shown in, or addressed by, the acceptable ODR tables or operators seeking a different means of compliance, must prepare and seek TCCA approval of specific ODR tables applicable to their fleet.  New ODR tables proposed by operators should be coordinated with the Program Manager, Flight Technical in Certification and Operational Standards (AARTF) to ensure consistent treatment of variants between various operators’ ODR tables and compatibility of the MDR table with MDR provisions.  The operator retains the originals of the approved ODR tables.  The Program Manager Flight Technical will retain copies of approved Cessna aircraft ODR tables.

9. Specifications for Training

Initial, Transition and Upgrade Training:

The Flight Safety Wichita Training Center 560XLS+ training program was closely modeled upon the original 560XL,  and 560XLS training programs and shares the same philosophy in use of resource material and courseware presentation whenever possible.  Minimum training time requirements specified in CASS 724.115(31) Table 1 apply.  Commercial operators must ensure that their approved training programs requirements are met when contracting their crew member training to another organization.

Recurrent Training:

Annual recurrent training is accomplished in accordance with the operators approved training program that meets the standards of CASS 724.115.  Minimum Ground and Flight (Simulator) specified in CASS 724.115(31) Table 2 apply.

Differences Training:

When any combination of the 560XL, 560XLS, and the 560XLS+ are flown, appropriate instruction in design and systems differences will be required for any airplane consistent with MDR provisions detailed in Section 7.  In the future, when significant hardware or software product improvements are introduced for a single aircraft variant or for all variants, a reassessment of the differences training requirements may be undertaken by TCCA. 

  • Operator training from 560XL or the 560XLS to the 560XLS+ should emphasize the differences between the Primus 1000  / Universal or Honeywell FMS installation and the upgraded Pro Line 21 system.
  • The OEB recommends that the amount of differences ground school training and systems integration training when transitioning from 560XLS+ to or from the 560XL and or 560XLS is:

  • The OEB  recommends that systems integrations training be at level C using the minimum devices that meet the level C requirements specified by the MDR table.
  • Special Event Training
    Special event training is recommended.  Such training should be conducted to improve basic crew understanding and confidence regarding aircraft handling qualities, options and procedures as these relate to design characteristics and limitations.  Examples of this training should include the following:
    • Recovery from unusual attitudes;
    • Handling qualities and procedures during recovery from an upset condition (e.g., wake vortex encounter);
    • Operation of aircraft in icing environments including super cooled liquid droplet (SLD) events;
    • Low Energy Awareness Training;
    • High Altitude Stall Recovery;
    • Engine Failure/Malfunction Recognition Training;
  • The OEB also found that early exposure to the automatic flight control system (AFCS), and flight management system (FMS) is important, particularly for pilots with no previous Pro Line 21 experience.  Establishing early confidence in manually flying the aircraft, converting from manual to automatic (FMS controlled) flight mode and back is equally important due to heavy reliance on the AFCS.  In the event of a flight path deviation due to input error or system malfunction, the flight crew must be able to comfortably transition from automatic to manual mode and back in an orderly fashion.
  • Similarly, exposure to the use of VNAV in the terminal environment including SIDs, STARs and LNAV/VNAV approaches is important.  Establishing confidence in converting from basic autopilot modes to FMS VNAV controlled flight modes and back is equally important in order to cope with ATC clearance amendments to speed and altitude constraints.
  • The differences training program can be found in Appendix 2.

Display of Jeppesen Approach Charts on MFD:

  • Jeppesen approach and airport charts that can be displayed on the MFD do not meet requirements for an electronic flight bag because these charts cannot be displayed during all phases of flight.  In particular, when the battery is placed in the “EMER” position, the MFD display is not powered. This constraint would require that valid charts in another approved format be available during IFR flight.  CBAAC 0231 dated 2004.07.20 provides guidance to operators on the use of Electronic Flight Bags.

10. Specifications for Checking

Checking conducted shall be in accordance with CASS 724.108 schedule 1, as required.

11. Specifications for Currency

Currency will be maintained, or re-established, in accordance with CASS 724.115 through the approved Company training program.

The assessment of currency was not restricted to take-off and landing currency as the scope of this OEB was to specifically evaluate the differences in avionics between the 560XL, 560XLS, and the 560XLS+.  The differences in avionics form the primary differences between the three aircraft.  Please review the notes regarding currency under the Master Differences Requirements table..

12. Aircraft Regulatory Compliance Checklist

Any Canadian operator wishing to operate the 560XL, 560XLS, or 560XLS+ aircraft will have to demonstrate to Transport Canada that the aircraft fully complies with all applicable CAR 605/704 parts before that aircraft enters service. A sample compliance checklist is included in Appendix 1 of this report.  

POIs may contact the Program Manager of Flight Technical in Certification and Operational Standards, Flight Technical to obtain a sample checklist for guidance in determining an operator’s compliance with all applicable CAR 605/704 regulations.

13. Specifications for Devices and Simulators

Device and simulator characteristics are designated in Aeroplane and Rotorcraft Simulator Manual (TP 9685). The acceptability of differences between devices, simulators, and aircraft must be addressed by the POI.  Requests for device approval should be made to the POI.  The POI may approve those devices for that operator if their characteristics clearly meet the established TC criteria and have been qualified by the National Simulator Evaluation Program (NSEP).

14. Application of Report

All relevant parts of this report are applicable to operators on the effective date of this report.

15. Alternate Means of Compliance To This Report

The TCCA Program Manager Flight Technical should be consulted by the POI when alternate means of compliance, other than those specified in this report, are proposed.  If an alternate means of compliance is sought, operators will be required to submit a proposed alternate means of compliance for approval that provides an equivalent level of safety to the provisions of CPD and this OEB report.  Analysis, demonstrations, proof of concept testing, differences documentation, and/or other evidence may be required.

In the event that an alternate means of compliance is sought, training program hour reductions, simulator approvals, and device approvals may be significantly limited and reporting requirements may be increased to ensure an equivalent level of training, checking, and currency. TCCA will generally not consider relief through an alternate means of  compliance unless sufficient lead-time has been planned by an operator to allow for any necessary testing and evaluation.
