Based on regular feedback from members there are notably different interpretations by inspectors as to the nature and seriousness of inspections in different states. This has led to unduly severe reports and even grounding of aircraft. ERA collects examples of unreasonable reports to send to EASA. Captain Peter Damberg, Danish Air Transport, represented ERA members at the recent EASA annual forum to discuss SAFA issues.
