Airworthiness Directives; Dassault Aviation Airplanes
Document Number: 2020-18026
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-08-19
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2019-23-05, which applies to all Dassault Aviation Model MYSTERE-FALCON 900 airplanes. AD 2019-23-05 requires revising the existing maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate new or more restrictive airworthiness limitations. Since the FAA issued AD 2019-23- 05, the agency has determined that new or more restrictive airworthiness limitations are necessary. This proposed AD would require revising the existing maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate new or more restrictive airworthiness limitations, as specified in a European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD, which will be incorporated by reference. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
