B757 Aircraft Operators Work with Jetaire Group to Comply with New FAA Airworthiness Directives

FAA Airworthiness Directive AD2016-07-07 Mandates Modifying the Fuel Quantity System to Prevent an Ignition on the B757 Aircraft

ATLANTA – Jetaire Group, an award-winning aerospace manufacturer known for their patented aircraft fuel ignition mitigation system, called INVICTA, is helping airlines and aircraft operators worldwide comply with FAA Airworthiness Directive AD2016-07-07 issued for the Boeing 757.
