AEROBEARINGS ENFORCEMENT CASE
Continued from page 29

In the meantime, aircraft owners, operators, and
maintenance professionals are left to determine how to handle
bearings handled by AeroBearings.
It's interesting to note the FAA did not issue an
airworthiness directive related to AeroBearings products.
It would seem any violation so significant, so critical in
its impact to safety that it justifies an emergency order of
revocation would justify more than a quiet recommendation
to aircraft operators to check their equipment.
But that's exactly how the FAA responded - by publishing
a safety alert for operators. SAFO 18008 warns aircraft
owners, operators, air agencies, suppliers, distributors and
maintenance technicians of improper maintenance performed
by AeroBearings LLC.
Technically, SAFOs are not legally binding or statutory in
nature, but the fine print (literally) on every SAFO issues a
back-handed warning: "SAFO content should be especially
valuable to air carriers in meeting their statutory duty to
provide service with the highest possible degree of safety in
the public interest. Besides the specific action recommended
in a SAFO, an alternative action may be as effective in
addressing the safety issue named in the SAFO."
Does this language mean any air carrier that ignores or
merely misses this SAFO is not "meeting their statutory duty"
and therefore not providing "the highest possible degree of
safety?"
The SAFO recommends aircraft owners, operators,
maintenance technicians and others should:
1.	 Inspect their records and inventory for any bearings
approved for return to service by AeroBearings LLC.
2.	 Quarantine and inspect any bearings not installed,
then conduct a recertification inspection to determine
airworthiness prior to installation.
3.	 Inspect any installed bearings at the next piece parts
exposure.
It is prudent for maintenance technicians and aircraft
owners and operators to consider the guidance outlined in the
SAFO since the FAA alleges the airworthiness of the bearings
is in question, even though the enforcement case hinges
primarily on paperwork technicalities.
"SAFOs are not necessarily legally binding, but the fine
print on each SAFO should give air carriers, in particular,
pause," Jackson said. "All individuals using AeroBearings
products should follow the advice in the SAFO." q
