Boeing 777: Engine Maker Will Conduct Inspections Ordered By US Regulator


The company said the fan blades would be examined using thermal and acoustic imaging inspection

New York:

Aircraft engine maker Pratt & Whitney said on Tuesday it would perform inspections as ordered by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration on 125 planes with engine blades similar to those that recently failed on a Boeing 777.

The company said the fan blades would be examined using thermal and acoustic imaging (TAI) inspection “to confirm airworthiness.”

“Pratt & Whitney is coordinating all actions with Boeing, airlines and regulators. Safe operation of the fleet is our top priority,” the company said in a statement.
