Featured Map for 14 February 2018:
A320neo Family and PW1100G Engines


Last Friday, the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) issued an Emergency Airworthiness Directive (AD number 2018-0041-E) covering all Airbus A320neo and A321neo aircraft equipped with International Aero Engines PW1100G-family Geared Turbofan (GTF) engines. The AD is based on a problem identified by Pratt & Whitney with the after hub of the high pressure compressor (HPC) with specific engines which would lead to an in-flight shut-down (IFSD) of the engine. Aircraft equipped with two of the affected engines could suffer a dual engine IFSD.

Over 100 A320neo and A321neo aircraft with PW1100G engines are in service with 17 airlines. (Two other airlines have received these aircraft but not yet commenced service with them.)

Today's Featured Map shows the routes on which these aircraft are currently being used, color-coded to the airlines. Individual maps for each airline are also available:
