A Montgomery, Alabama County Circuit Court wrongful death lawsuit alleges that a Piper aircraft fatal crash was caused by the malfunction of a carburetor component.

Pamela Jean Lusardi, the sole passenger aboard a  Piper 22-150, was killed when the plane experienced engine failure and crashed. Lusardi’s representative Robert Pittman filed a lawsuit alleging that the carburetor series used in the Piper had “a long history of malfunctions and defects” that could lead to engine failure.

Pittman claims there are issues with the float and needle-valve mechanisms in the Piper’s MA-series carburetor which was overhauled and component parts manufactured by Kelly Aerospace Power Systems and Kelly Aerospace Inc.

The lawsuits claims that the carburetor “was prone to significant interference of movement occurring with the float and needle valve, causing improper fuel metering which resulted in the loss of engine power,” and alleges strict product liability and negligence because of “the use of metallurgically incompatible materials as well as improper screw holes that caused shifting of component parts.”

Pittman also claims that the carburetor was unreasonably dangers for its intended use and was sold with no warnings. disclaimer: This article: Wrongful Death Lawsuit Filed Against Kelly Aerospace Power Systems was posted on Thursday, May 5th, 2011 at 8:34 pm at and is filed under Accident Lawsuits.
