FAA is Superseding Previous AD on Engine Exhaust for Piper Navajo Aircraft

Monday, December 1st, 2014

The FAA is superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 76-06-09 for certain Piper Aircraft, Inc. Model PA-31P airplanes. AD 76-06-09 required repetitive inspection of certain exhaust system parts with replacement of parts mating with the turbocharger, as necessary, and allowed installation of a certain tailpipe v-band coupling as terminating action. This new AD 2014-23-03 requires the use of new service information and expands the scope of the inspections of the turbocharger exhaust system. This AD was prompted by reports of exhaust system failures, new service information, and the tailpipe v-band coupling used for terminating action is obsolete. They are issuing this AD to correct the unsafe condition on these products. DATES: This AD is effective December 18, 2014. pdf icon 2014-23-03.pdf
