CAA Nepal suspends AOC of Simrik Airlines over safety issues

CAA Nepal suspends AOC of Simrik Airlines over safety issues

The Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN), has grounded Simrik Airlines for failing to meet safety standards.

The inspection team of CAAN had found that the airline was using substandard spare parts in its Beech 1900 aircraft. CAAN did the same finding in an audit in 2018.  The aircraft will be grounded until the airline replaces its spare parts and conducts the required maintenance of its aircraft.

Simrik Airlines was founded in 2009 and operates domestic flights in Nepal using two Beech 1900C aircraft.

Engine Alliance to start engine inspection campaign over A380 uncontained engine failure

The French BEA issued an update on the September 2017 uncontained engine failure over Greenland involving an Air France Airbus A380.
Part from the fan hub recently recovered from Greenland has been examined by the manufacturer Engine Alliance under BEA supervision. Metallurgical examination of the recovered titanium fan hub fragment identified a subsurface fatigue crack origin. The fracture was initiated in a microtextured area approximately in the middle of the slot bottom.
Examination of the fracture is ongoing. Meanwhile, Engine Alliance announced to the concerned A380 operators that an engine inspection campaign will be launched soon.
