FAA proposes $1,567,968 penalty against O’Hare Airport over snowy runway operations

FAA proposes $1,567,968 penalty against O’Hare Airport over snowy runway operations

The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes a $1,567,968 civil penalty against the operator of Chicago-O’Hare Airport for allegedly failing to ensure safe airline operations during snowy and wet runway conditions.

The Chicago Department of Aviation’s Snow and Ice Control Plan requires the airport to take specific safety actions if two consecutive flight crews report poor braking action after landing. On November 11, 2019, at least two consecutive flight crews reported poor braking action three separate times after landing on runway 10L at Chicago O’Hare International Airport.

However, the CDA failed to limit operations on that runway, conduct a runway condition assessment, inform airlines about potentially unsafe conditions or limit operations to safe portions of the airport, the FAA alleges. The CDA allowed a total of 43 aircraft to land on runway 10L following the consecutive reports of poor braking action, the FAA alleges. One of those aircraft, an Envoy Airlines Embraer EMB-145, slid off the runway due to poor braking action.

EASA warns for pitot obstructions after COVID-19-storage

EASA warns for pitot obstructions after COVID-19-storage

The European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) warns maintenance organisations to be aware of possible pitot obstructions after COVID-19-storage.

EASA has noticed what it calls “an alarming trend” in the number of reports of unreliable speed and altitude indications during the first flight(s) following the aircraft leaving storage, caused by contaminated air data systems. This has led to a number of Rejected Take-Off (RTO) and In-Flight Turn Back (IFTB) events. Most of the reported events concerned the accumulation of foreign objects, such as insect nests, in the pitot static system. This contamination caused obstruction of pitot probe and static port orifices, in some cases on multiple systems, even when the covers were installed.
The risk of such contamination was increased, if the aircraft storage/de-storage procedures were not completely or improperly applied at the beginning, during or at the end of the storage period.

EASA recommends maintenance organisations to carefully follow the maintenance instructions for cleaning and inspecting the pitot static system during the return back to service of aircraft
