  • Licensed engineer not familiar with the term ‘ppm’

    File this under 'wtf'. I somehow missed this when it happened back in 2020. A Titan Airways A321 climbs out, gets a #1 engine surge, goes Mayday and turns back, but then #2 begins to act up. The plane returns safely but it is then discovered that it almost died from a Kathlon overdose. 30kgs instead of 0.799 kg. Oops...

    That's what happens when the not-so-adequately-educated maintenance guy has to resort to Google to interpret the AMM.

    0.799kg? Really? Any sane engineer would round it to 1. A very pedantic one to 0.8.

      Well, this EASA Part-66 B1 licensed AMO engineer rounded it to 30.
