FAA SAIB Warns Of Airliners Being Prematurely Returned To Service
from AERO News Network
The FAA says it has received reports of cases where maintenance personnel did not complete required post-maintenance inspections, checks, and tests that would have prevented accidents or incidents. In one case, the maintenance crew only had time to adjust the tension of one elevator control cable and did not complete the elevator control system re-rigging. The crew then decided to do only a portion of the system post-maintenance inspections, checks, and tests. The system post-maintenance inspections, checks, and tests selected by the crew did not reveal that the airplane elevator control system was rigged incorrectly.
