Did FAA wait too long on inspections — Southwest emergency

Maker of Failed Southwest Airlines Engine Calls for Closer Inspections

Manufactured by CFM International, a joint venture between General Electric and France's Safra Aircraft Engines, the CFM56-7B is one of the most widely used jet engines.

"Debris penetrated the fuselage causing a loss of pressurisation and prompting an emergency descent".

In its letter, Southwest Airlines pointed to the ongoing National Transport Safety Board investigation into the incident but said its priority was assisting the traumatized survivors.

According to CFM International, about 680 engines will be impacted by the order to inspect engines with more than 30,000 cycles within the next 20 days. If you have to use the proxy of your company, contact us.

Southwest, which had opposed efforts by the engine maker last year to shorten the FAA's earlier proposed deadline, on Friday said its maintenance program meets or exceeds the new requirements. Forbes reports that the order affects 680 engines in use worldwide, including 352 in the US. For all other engines, inspections are recommended when the engine reaches 20,000 cycles.

Still, news about the inspection proposal is troubling.

After reaching a certain age, the engines should be inspected approximately every two years, the manufacturer said. No other Australian airlines fly Boeing 737s. The airline stated that there were around 40 cancellations out of nearly 4,000 flights on Sunday. The airlines have 20 days to comply.

And the very safety of air travel is what makes passengers complacent, said Laurie, the former flight attendant.

CFM said it issued the recommendation in "close collaboration" with FAA, EASA, Boeing and CFM56-7B operators.

The airline is encouraging customers to check their website to find out about flight changes.

Though the FAA isn't requiring inspections of engines with fewer than 30,000 cycles, it said in its statement that it is leaving the door open to "further rulemaking".

"These inspections will be completed by our engineers within the required time frame".

The Federal Aviation Administration has ordered inspections of more jet engines like the one that blew apart at 32,000 feet in a deadly accident aboard a Southwest Airlines plane. "So it's a fairly big deal for this kind of failure to happen".

Cappelletti described the CFM engines that power the Boeing 737 fleet as very safe and well-designed. She had been in the window seat.

Philadelphia's medical examiner said on Wednesday that Ms Riordan had died of blunt impact trauma to her head, neck and torso.

When an explosion or another event causes the passenger cabin to lose pressure, the oxygen masks drop down. The separation was seemingly caused by cracks in the fan blade. "They didn't get the inspections done, and when the FAA was going to put out (an order) they all objected".

On that occasion, the flight was diverted to Pensacola and there were no injuries.
