SERVICE BULLENTINS & AIRWORTHINESS DIRECTIVES
KEEPING YOUR ENGINES CURRENT AND WITHIN LEGISLATION
At GT Engine Services, we are committed to ensuring we work to incredibly high standards. As we hold accreditations with the EASA and FAA, we must ensure our technical services adhere to the latest Service Bulletins and Airworthiness Directives from these governing bodies.
There are some key differences between a Service Bulletin and an Airworthiness Directive. The former will alert the aircraft operator of a potentially unsafe condition; the latter will be issued when a perilous condition is found to exist in a product (in our case, an aircraft engine). Even mandatory Service Bulletins are not necessarily enforceable unless they are accompanied by an Airworthiness Directive. In our experience, however, all guidelines need to be considered if we are to offer a safe and truly comprehensive service to our customers.
Any engine that passes through our doors will be subjected to rigorous quality control procedures that are shaped according to the latest Service Bulletins and Airworthiness Directives available from the relevant aviation authorities.
