The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) released an airworthiness directive on 3rd of October about periodic control of pickle fork cracks regarding B737NG aircraft that exceeded a certain number of landings. Our technical team completed the controls of about 20 aircrafts within the scope of the mentioned airworthiness directive. Only one aircraft has been sent to maintenance upon the completion of these controls. Other aircrafts in our B737NG fleet do not require any technical maintenance within the scope of this airworthiness directive.
Developments are followed with Boeing by weekly meetings and announcements released by FAA. Our Incorporation continues to work closely with manufacturers and aviation authorities with the safety first approach.
