FAA Revokes Repair Station Certificate For Sensenich Facility In CT

Alleges Company Falsified Maintenance Records For Improperly Serviced Parts

The FAA has issued an Emergency Order of Revocation of the repair station certificate that authorizes Sensenich Propeller Service, Inc., to operate in North Windham, CT.

The FAA alleges Sensenich falsified maintenance records and approved for return to service parts that had been improperly serviced.

The FAA also issued an Emergency Order of Revocation of the repairman certificate of the company’s accountable manager for the same alleged violations.

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 instructions in the manufacturer’s overhaul manuals.

The FAA further alleges that Sensenich and the accountable manager certified that on 47 separate occasions, the work was performed in accordance with the manufacturer’s overhaul manuals and Federal Aviation Regulations, and approved the propellers for return to service. Sensenich officials knew, however, that the propellers were not properly overhauled, the FAA alleges.

Due to the seriousness of the alleged violations, the FAA determined that emergency action was required to immediately revoke the certificates of the company and the accountable manager. Both surrendered their certificates to the FAA, and neither appealed the FAA’s emergency revocation order.

The company’s two other maintenance facilities that it operates elsewhere in the country are not affected by this Emergency Order of Revocation.
