NEW DELHI: Air India is studying the impact of a recent directive from US aviation watchdog FAA, making “repetitive maintenance task” mandatory on Boeing 787-Dreamliner planes due to certain issues with its power supply. “Our technical team is studying the Airworthiness Directive (AD) issued by Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). It would be difficult to talk about the impact or its implications or say anything on the issue at this stage,” a senior Air India official said on Sunday.

The national carrier currently has 20 Boeing 787 (Dreamliners) in its fleet.

Last week, FAA issued the directive saying, “We are adopting a new airworthiness directive for all the Boeing Company model 787 planes. This AD requires repetitive maintenance task for electrical power deactivation on Model 787 planes.”

FAA said it was issuing the AD as it had “evaluated” all relevant information and determined “unsafe” conditions described previously is likely to exist or develop in other products of the same type of design
