The company require restraining of at least the left propeller on SAAB 340 aircraft at all times during turnaround.
Propeller restraints are now a requirement on all turnarounds and are being correctly used. This practice was reinforced immediately following this injury. A modified restraint is used in high winds (>20 kts).
