TBM loss puts renewed focus on Hypoxia
Two months after the Sept. 5 crash off the coast of Jamaica of TBM N900KN, with two people on board, depressurization and the danger of hypoxia have drawn renewed attention, even though — and perhaps because — the pilot's actions after he reported an unspecified problem to ATC appear inconsistent with recommended procedures for loss of pressurization. N900KN was a new TBM900, the updated model of the Daher-Socata turboprop single introduced earlier this year.
