EASA relaxes inspection requirements for Trent 900 engines

22-Dec-2010 10:50 AM

European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) announced it has dropped the emergency inspection regime for Trent 900 engines, requiring inspections after every 20 flights (Wall Street Journal, 21-Dec-2010). EASA has relaxed the inspection schedule for most Trent 900 engines to 100 flights. The emergency inspection order was put in place in late Nov-2010, following the failure of a Trent 900 on a Qantas A380 on 04-Nov-2010.
