American Inspection of Airbus A300-600s Already Underway

16th Nov 2001

FORT WORTH, Texas - American Airlines Executive Vice President of Operations Gerard Arpey said today that American fully supports the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) decision to issue an Airworthiness Directive (AD) requiring precautionary inspections to verify the integrity of the A300 tail sections.

American voluntarily began its own inspection program on Thursday, Nov. 15, and that program is consistent with the FAA’s new AD. The airline’s inspection team includes mechanics, engineers, production supervisors and technical crew chiefs. To date, they have not uncovered any problems with American’s A300 fleet.

American operates 34 A300-600s, and will complete the inspections as quickly as possible.
