 Boeing does not use rust for a long time, FAA requires emergency inspection of 2000 aircraft


The directive applies to aircraft that have not been in operation for seven consecutive days or more, following four reports of single engine failures due to prolonged parking. Inspectors also found that the air check valve was damaged when the aircraft was removed from the warehouse.

Boeing said on Friday that it had recommended that operators inspect aircraft and that valves were more susceptible to corrosion because of low demand during the pandemic and aircraft were not used for a long time.

The FAA said that if the airline found corrosion, it would have to replace the valve before flying again.

After the epidemic greatly reduced travel demand, airlines around the world grounded thousands of aircraft, but as demand increased, some airlines have begun to fly again.

American Airlines and Southwest Airlines said they complied with the directive but did not encounter any problems. United Airlines and delta also said they had complied with the rules and were not expected to have an impact on operations. The safety of the flight has not been compromised, Alaskan said in a statement. The check valve is now being checked before the aircraft is put back into service. Boeing, which has been hit hard by the air crash and the epidemic, expects 737max deliveries to be significantly lower than previously expected in the next few years. In addition to the uncertain future of the 737max, the undelivered 787 dream airliner also faces the dilemma of no place to store. In May and June, Boeing delivered only three 787-9 aircraft in total, compared with 36 for all aircraft in the first half of this year, less than half of the same period last year (78). Under the impact of the epidemic, cash strapped Airlines slowed down or canceled aircraft procurement, and Boeings 787 and 777, as well as Airbuss A350 and a330neo, and other wide body aircraft were severely hit.
