Ah, mostly mechanics hear say, which is about as useful as any rumour you’d hear although from time to time the whispers through the grapevine are scarily accurate.
It’s just a little worrysome that the system kept overriding the pilots inputs and had no obvious way to determine it’s own failure or faulty inputs, right? Makes no sense to me since Boeing knows how to design this type of sensor by now!
Haha yeah well, the LEAP is the hot now thing in engines these days, all the competitors are off worse. Pratt and Whitney have a lot of trouble with the geared turbofan design and Rolls Royce is off even worse. GE is leading the pack!
It’s mostly the fact that we are skirting up against material and tolerance limits when building these engines and new materials are being tested. Which might work fine on a test bench but give way quicker in real life conditions. The GenX engines also have quicker then expected shop visits but it’s all calculated in and for now falls under GE warranty.
