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.
