The aviation industry is using improved methods and technology to detect potential defects in aircraft engines. Working in partnership, government and industry are using enhanced inspections for certain high-energy rotating engine components. The initiative is based on an extensive analysis conducted by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and industry on the historical causes of engine-related accidents. The FAA issued 23 Airworthiness Directives (ADs) requiring that operators inspect fan, high-pressure turbine and priority low-pressure turbine engine components.
