ERJ In Trouble With Faa?

Mon Nov 06, 2000 3:25 am

The has been a rumor going around at my employer that the FAA is considering grounding the entire ERJ fleet due to reliability issues with their RR/Allison AE3007 powerplants. Has anyone heard of this? Any input or information you have is welcome.

I haven't heard that, but if it is true, COEX is screwed.

Yeah so Is Eagle. I have heard nothing about it at all and I work for Eagle. So much for our "All Jet" ORD operation if it happens.

Oh, I know this all too well. It's the same in my company. The people involved are always the last to be informed...

The ERJ have had problems with the FADEC system. FADEC stands for Fully Automatic Digital Engine Control. I think the aircraft has four of them, so failure of one is a non-event. The FAA issued an AD (Airworthiness Directive), and the airlines were very fast to comply. Continental Express is the largest operator of Embraer jets, and American Eagle runs a distant second. As far as I know, both have addressed the problem.

At COEX we've already replaced many of the FADEC systems on the specific aircraft involved. Just to clarify, not all ERJ's are affected by this AD. To my knowledge the newer 145-LR's have a FADEC system which was not having this problem. Either way the system is very redundant and would not substantiate the FAA grounding all ERJ's

Cheers,
