Airworthiness Directives; Gulfstream Model G-IV, GIV-X, GV, and GV-SP Series Airplanes
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Gulfstream Model G-IV and GV series airplanes, and certain GIV-X and GV-SP series airplanes. This AD requires a one-time inspection to determine if a certain floor heater pad system is installed, and deactivation of the subject floor heater pad system if it is installed. This AD results from an incident of short-circuiting of the floor heater pads, in which no circuit breakers tripped in response to the short-circuiting. We are issuing this AD to prevent short-circuiting of the floor heater pad system, which could result in a fire in the airplane cabin.
Airworthiness Directives; Gulfstream Aerospace LP Model Galaxy and Gulfstream 200 Airplanes
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Gulfstream Aerospace LP Model Galaxy and Gulfstream 200 airplanes. This AD requires a one-time general visual inspection for any damaged wiring, splice, connector, and pins for the fuel standby feed pumps and replacement of any damaged wiring, splice, connector, or pin. This AD also requires replacement of the power and ground wires for the fuel standby feed pumps. This AD results from reports of evidence of overheating found on the feeder wires of the left and right fuel standby feed pumps. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct damaged wiring for the fuel standby feed pumps, which could result in an ignition source in an area where fuel vapor may be present, and a consequent fire or explosion.
Airworthiness Directives; Pilatus Aircraft Ltd. Models PC-6, PC-6-H1, PC-6-H2, PC-6/350, PC-6/350-H1, PC-6/350-H2, PC-6/A, PC-6/A-H1, PC-6/A-H2, PC-6/B-H2, PC-6/B1-H2, PC-6/B2-H2, PC-6/B2-H4, PC-6/C-H2, and PC-6/C1-H2 Airplanes
The FAA adopts a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Pilatus Aircraft Ltd. (Pilatus) (also identified as Fairchild Republic Company and Fairchild Heli Porter) Model PC-6 airplanes. This AD requires you to repetitively inspect the stabilizer-trim attachment and structural components for cracks, corrosion, and discrepancies and replace any defective part with a new part. This AD also requires you to replace all Fairchild connecting pieces, part number (P/N) 6232.0026.XX, with a Pilatus connecting piece and requires you to replace fittings without an index after the P/N with an improved part. This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by the airworthiness authority for Switzerland. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct defective stabilizer-trim attachments and surrounding structural components, which could result in failure of the stabilizer-trim attachment. This failure could lead to loss of control of the airplane.
