Pratt & Whitney has disclosed that it discovered a scheme in 2011 at fellow United Technologies (UTX) subsidiary Carmel Forge to allegedly falsify metallurgical test results in certain aircraft engine forgings to make it appear as if they met Pratt's extra-high internal standards even if they didn't. While the scheme affected tens of thousands of parts, United Tech and FAA investigations found that the components aren't a safety risk.
