Fliegerfaust note: Pratt & Whitney is claiming that ONE engine is better than TWO... Really?? Canada please think again before selecting a single engine new fighter jet like the F-35
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has issued an airworthiness directive (AD) for the Pratt & Whitney engines that powers the Airbus A220 and Embraer E2 190/95.
Pratt & Whitney PW1000G is a high-bypass geared turbofan engine family, currently selected as the exclusive engine for the A220 and Embraer E2 190/95 with PW1500G and PW1900G correspondingly.
This AD was prompted by corrosion found on the high-pressure compressor (HPC) front hub, which could result in certain HPC front hubs cracking before reaching their published life limit.
This action may be related to the Swiss A220 incident in which the engine suffered a mid-flight shut down....
