WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration has issued an Emergency Order of Revocation of its repair station certification for Sensenish Propeller Service, Inc.'s facility in North Windham, Conn.
According to a statement from the FAA issued yesterday, the agency said Sensenish falsified maintenance records and approved for return-to-service parts that had been improperly serviced.
The FAA also issued an Emergency Order of Revocation for the company's accountable manager's repairman certificate for the same reasons.
"The FAA alleges that between March 2015 and at least February 2017, Sensenich and the accountable manager knowingly and intentionally performed maintenance on 47 propellers for 45 separate aircraft that was contrary to the instructions in the manufacturer's overhaul manuals," the agency said in a statement.
The FAA said that "due to the seriousness of the alleged violations" it had determined emergency actions were immediately required.
Sensenish has not appealed the emergency revocation, and it's other maintenance facilities were not subject to the FAA order.
