Various airlines have fallen victim to CFM’s dubious parts.
More airlines are coming forward to report fake parts in their CFM engines. American Airlines has become the latest casualty of the scandal surrounding AOG Technics regarding false safety documents for dubious parts fitted to engines operated on Airbus A320s and Boeing 737s.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has reiterated that the documents provided were falsified, and earlier this month, it issued an unapproved parts notification (UPN) for the parts supplied by AOG without approval. The FAA said,
“If these bushings are installed or found in existing aircraft parts inventories, the FAA recommends that they be removed and quarantined to prevent installation until a determination can be made regarding their eligibility for installation.”
