So the agency I chose was the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Department of Transportation. (DOT). We are going to be talking about Airworthiness Directive 14 CFR Part 39 [Docket No. FAA-2018-0299; Product Identifier 2018-NM-060-AD; Amendment 39-19256; AD 2018-08-03] RIN 2120-AA64 in regards to the Airworthiness Directives, on the Boeing Company Airplanes. And that they are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for The Boeing company model airplanes powered by Rolls-Royce engines. Now, this means that the AD is requiring that the flight manual is updated to reflect a limit extended operating time on select engines. This went in to effect on April 17, 2018.
So, in short, the FAA and DOT are required Boeing to limit or -cutback the hours of use on the engines on certain plains for safety concerns. As to where the engine could have a significant failure causing serious, injury and or death to people riding the plain. I do happen to agree with the FAA the plain we ride in today is out dated. I feel that airlines donâ€™t care and they run their fleet of plains into the ground all in the name of making money while the whole time claiming to be safe. I know more people die in car accidents each year rather than plane crashes. But my safety is a concern I feel the Airlines need to take into perspective. So yes the FAA canâ€™t be hard enough on the Airlines or the manufactures of the engines that power these plains.
