Comments will be accepted until May 7 on the proposed superseding AD, which is estimated to affect 123 U.S.-registered airplanes.
According to the proposal, the FAA identified inspection and life-limit requirements that were inadvertently omitted from provisions of AD 79-01-03 and AD 83-20-03.
The requirements of those ADs would be retained, and the proposed AD would mandate the spar carry through assembly inspection from AD 79-01-03 “for additional airplanes and add life limits for certain wing structural components previously omitted from AD 83-20-03 for certain serial numbered airplanes” as listed in the proposal.
Comments on the proposed AD may be submitted online or by mail to U.S. Department of Transportation, Docket Operations, M-30, West Building Ground Floor, Room W12-140, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE, Washington, DC 20590.
Please include Docket No. FAA-2020-0881 and Project Identifier 2018-CE-024-AD in your comments.
