A report issued yesterday indicated the shop in Miami that worked on that AoA sensor has now been sanctioned by the FAA ( for doing work/selling products that they weren't qualified/authorized by the FAA to sell). "Cockroach corner" indeed. I hope someone goes to jail, and I hope the hire a few investigators to find and close down similar shops wherever they are.The plane was not airworthy according to the report. It had a defective or improperly calibrated AOA sensor that caused a flight control malfunction.
The standard definition of airworthy is compliance with the Type Certificate and other standards and in a condition for safe operation.
Still, a faulty AoA sender shouldn't (and needn't) produce this result.
