Monitoring P&W engine glitches to ensure safety, says DGCA
Aviation regulator DGCA today said it is monitoring engine glitches in the Pratt and Whitney- powered Airbus A320 Neo aircraft to ensure that safety is not compromised at any time.
IndiGo has grounded three A320 neo aircraft due to engine problems.
The DGCA move follows a directive from European aviation safety regulator EASA after instances of the engine's in- flight shutdowns and rejected take-offs involving A320 neo family planes.
"It is to reiterate that DGCA is continuously monitoring these operations to ensure that safety is not compromised at any stage and A320neo aircraft in the fleet of Indian operators are being operated safely," according to a statement from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation.
