LOS ANGELES (Map, News) -
Federal investigators on Saturday were looking into what caused smoke in the cockpit that forced Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's private plane to make an emergency landing.
Authorities intend to follow-up with the New Jersey-based private charter company that ferried Schwarzenegger on his travels, Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor said Saturday.
Gregor said the FAA will make sure NetJets Inc. diagnoses and fixes the problem that prompted the emergency landing on Friday.
Schwarzenegger's jet was about 10 minutes away from landing at the Santa Monica Airport on Friday evening when the pilot reported smoke coming from an instrument panel, Schwarzenegger spokesman Aaron McLear said in a statement.

The jet made an emergency landing after the pilot reported smoke in the cockpit. No one was injured.
The pilot made a "quick, steep, but safe landing" at 6:23 p.m. at Van Nuys Airport in the San Fernando Valley, McLear said.
Schwarzenegger tweeted about the incident, calling it "a little adventure," and posting a link to a photo of the jet parked on the runway on his Twitter feed.
"All's OK, though," he tweeted.
City fire crews met the jet on the runway, though there were no flames.
Schwarzenegger exited the jet and went to his Los Angeles-area home, McLear said.
NetJets spokeswoman Maryann Aarseth did not immediately return a phone call Saturday.

WHATEVER. It's confidential and shouldn't be brought up here.

You guys need to cut NJAOwner some slack.

He is who he says he is. He also knows a number of our pilots from this board, so I don't think its unreasonable that after reading an article in the paper concerning the governor of California and one of our aircraft, he came here to ask about it.

Having said that you are both correct about the confidentiality clause.

NJAOwner, for what its worth, the pilots know little more than what you have quoted in the newspaper article.

I was not asking for any confidentiality to be breached. But considering what usually gets discussed here, I thought there would be some info.

Fly safe.

I'm not advocating any violations of corporate security or suggesting that NJ pilots divulge confidential information....

But pretending like Arnold is not a NetJets owner is like pretending John Glenn was not an astronaut.

Any deviation from normal ops involving an unplanned landing or situation like he had is going to be known due to the FAA reporting requirements of FAR 91k. While his name my not appear in the reports, the tail number/location/date/time sure will be.

NJAowner deserves a little slack... (and since you can upgrade your flight to a IV/V, or may be given a complimentary upgrade can you please change your screen name to NetJets owner ;))

i must say i was relieved to see the FAA will force netjets to diagnose and fix the problem. It's that diligence that inspires my total faith in the government........

Relieved like spitting coffee out your nose laughing like I did or actual-honest-to-god relief?? Never mind, I think I know the answer.
