It is every airline’s goal to provide the best service they can give by making their passenger’s safety a top priority. A skilled and experienced pilot can take you anywhere in the world, but a faulty jet engine can put everyone’s lives in danger.
Just last year, Southwest Airlines Flight 1380 broke their fatality-free flying history since 2009 when an uncontained engine failure took the life of Wells Fargo’s former vice president of community relations Jennifer Riordan, 43, a mother of two children. Passengers reportedly heard a loud boom, after which Riordan, who was sitting next to the window where the engine failure happened, was sucked part way out of the broken window until being dragged back into the aircraft by her fellow passengers. Accidents happen and, sometimes, there’s nothing we can do about it. In Southwest Airlines’ case, perhaps it was a foreign object or a mechanical failure that was to blame, but if it was the latter, could it have been prevented? Absolutely.
An airline engine’s lifespan lasts up to 20 to 30 years, but it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t check up on the jet engine every once in a while. The question, however, is when is it time to replace them. It is advisable for an engine to undergo maintenance after a number of flights. This, of course, also depends on the engine type but checking up on the jet engine every once in a while can help keep any minor or major accidents from happening.
But what if it happens in-flight, just like in Southwest Airline’s case? An aviation company such as Jetset Airmotive that specializes in all PT6A models, Twin-Pac and JT15D engines.
