I'm lead to believe the so called AMOC has not been received by the FAA - the AMOC has been mooted since early last year so why the extraordinary long gestation ?

When you say "lead to believe", are you saying that you called the FAA point-of-contact and they told you it had not been recieved? Why such an oblique statement?

Did you get to talk to Justin Carter (he's listed as POC)?

June 28, 2021 9:16AM
Just received this morning from the FAA point of contact listed on the AD ...

"There were some preliminary discussions with SAP regarding an AMOC. I have not seen a formal AMOC submission yet."

Best,

Wow. I've been fooled by that statement three times so far by my count. I've tried hard to be positive about this for a long time. But to find out now that I was fooled a month ago, well... I dare not type any more here.
Actually, I'd like to ask: Larry, is this Bill Ross speaking to you directly, or to someone else? Just trying to get as much detail as possible.

Default Direct contact

I've been before "fooled" as well on this.
I got a follow up e-mail response from Bill Ross the same day I talk to Justin Carter at the FAA and learned that the AMOC had yet to be submitted ... At first Bill said the AMOC is being submitted "now" ... I pressed him as to when "now" actually was ... and he said "this week" .
so .. I'll be sending Justin Carter a note on Monday asking if they received it.

Default SAP loyalty?

Don't know about the rest of you but SAP will have a very difficult time getting me or any of my customers to do business with them in the future.
I've already purchased a new crankshaft and will do the swap with or without them this winter. 15 hrs since new means very little to them.
