A400M operators advised to check engine control system
Airbus has issued fresh operating guidance to users of its A400M tactical transport, as investigation work continues into a fatal crash involving the type on 9 May.
In an alert operator transmission (AOT) made on 19 May, Airbus advises its customers to take actions “to avoid potential risks in any future flights” .
While Airbus says its communication is being made as the result of “internal analysis”, independently from an official investigation led by the Spanish defence ministry, it focuses attention on the A400M’s Europrop International TP400-D6 propulsion system. flightglobal
