Plane engine maker Pratt & Whitney said Tuesday it will carry out inspections as ordered by the US Federal Aviation Administration on 125 planes with engine blades similar to those that recently failed on a Boeing 777 aircraft.
The company said the fan blades would be examined using Thermal Acoustic Imaging (TAI) inspection “to confirm airworthiness.”
“Pratt & Whitney is coordinating all actions with Boeing, airline operators and regulators. The safe operation of the fleet is our top priority,” the company said in a statement.
