Improper Aircraft Engine Maintenance in Scotland
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposed a $1.2 million civil penalty of General Electric’s GE Caledonian unit for performing improper aircraft engine maintenance procedures at a repair station in Scotland. The FAA, which certifies repair stations abroad, proposed the fine for maintenance involving 101 engines from January 2005 to May 2008. The FAA alleged the company used a procedure to remove parts from engine mounts that deviated from the process outlined by the manufacturer’s manual.
