FAA issues emergency AD following Vietnam Airlines A321 uncontained IAE V2533 engine failure

FAA issues emergency AD following Vietnam Airlines A321 uncontained IAE V2533 engine failure

The U.S. FAA issued an emergency airworthiness directive following an uncontained engine failure of an IAE V2533-A5 engine of an Airbus A321.

On March 18, Vietnam Airlines flight VN920, an Airbus A321-231, powered by IAE V2533-A5 model turbofan engines, experienced an uncontained high-pressure turbine (HPT) 1st-stage disk failure on takeoff from Ho Chi Minh City-Tan Son Nhat Airport in Vietnam. The flight crew aborted the takeoff.

As a result of this occurrence, the FAA issued an emergency AD on March 21, 2020, requiring removal from service of affected HPT 1st-stage disks with specific part numbers, installed on IAE V2500 engine models. The FAA considers this an interim action as the root cause of this incident is still under investigation.

FAA proposes $19.68 million civil penalty against Boeing

FAA proposes $19.68 million civil penalty against Boeing

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes a $19.68 million civil penalty against The Boeing Co. for allegedly installing equipment on hundreds of the company’s 737 aircraft containing sensors that were not approved for that equipment.

The FAA alleges that between June 2015 and April 2019, Boeing installed Rockwell Collins Head-up Guidance Systems on 791 jetliners, including 618 Boeing 737 NGs and 173 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft. The FAA alleges that the guidance systems in these aircraft were equipped with sensors that had not been tested or approved as being compatible with those guidance systems.

The FAA alleges that Boeing violated Federal Aviation Regulations when it certified these aircraft as airworthy when they were not in conformance with their type certificate. The agency further alleges that Boeing failed to follow its own Business Process Instructions, which are in place to help prevent such situations from occurring.
The manufacturer of the head-up guidance system, Rockwell Collins, subsequently conducted the necessary testing and risk analysis and updated the documents.

Boeing has 30 days to respond the FAA’s enforcement letter.
