Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
The FAA is superseding Airworthiness Directives (ADs) 2015-14- 07, 2016-07-10, and 2016-24-09. AD 2015-14-07 applied to certain The Boeing Company Model 787-8 airplanes. AD 2016-07-10 and AD 2016-24-09 applied to all The Boeing Company Model 787-8 and 787-9 airplanes. ADs 2015-14-07, 2016-07-10, and 2016-24-09 required actions related to certain flight control module (FCM) software. This AD requires installing flight control electronics (FCE) common block point 5 (CBP5) software, which terminates the requirements of the ADs superseded by this AD. This AD was prompted by certain deficiencies in the FCM software, including a report of an unannunciated dual symmetric inboard slat skew. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
