FAT passenger aircraft
FAT passenger aircraft

We have seen that there are a lot of accidents taking place around the world when it comes to commercial and passenger aircraft. While some of them are company defects such as the Boeing 737 Max fiasco, we also see that some incidents take place due to the aircraft being too old. Having said that, we were not aware of the maximum limits set for passenger aircraft to be flown around commercially. Now, the Taiwan government has announced that they have a maximum limit of 26 years for flying passenger aircraft to operate in the country. This means that if a passenger aircraft goes beyond 26 years in operation, it will have to be retired as no new license will be given.

Talking about retiring the aircraft, we know that there are too many passenger aircraft flying around due to the company’s way of cutting costs to buy a new one. Now that this new rule has been levied, we expect the aviation industry to get a lot safer unless and until there is a system or technical fault inside the aircraft.

As per the new regulations, the aircrafts crossing 26 years in service will have to be retired from January 1, 2020. The government has also revealed that only FAT planes have crossed the maximum limit which means they will have to be retired by the airline. All these four planes are MD planes owned by Far Eastern Air Transport but we know that FAT has already suspended services due to financial problems so this new regulation is unlikely to affect the aviation sector of Taiwan.

The ministry of Taiwan also reveals that Airlines will be encouraged to speed up the acquisition of new aircraft and improve their risk management. Talking about FAT, it has applied to re-start operations but the delivery of the seventh plane from France has been halted by them.
