Détails:
The Caravan departed Fajardo (FAJ) on a flight to Culebra Island (CPX). Approximately 20 miles (32 km) from Fajardo, the airplane suffered an engine failure. The pilot was forced to make an emergency landing in the waters near Flamenco Beach.
Isla Nena sued Cessna Aircraft Company, the aircraft’s manufacturer, and Pratt & Whitney, the aircraft engine’s manufacturer, seeking damages for loss of the aircraft, repair costs to the aircraft, lost income during the time the aircraft was out of service and other damages based on tort and strict liability theories for defective products manufacture. The district court dismissed Isla Nena’s tort and strict liability claims because the emergency landing caused damage only to the plane itself.
