AD 2011-05-01 for Piaggio Aero P-180

This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as:

Compass mismatch (up to loss of heading information) were reported by operators, due to ferro-magnetic masses (like the telescopic Tow-Bar) stowed in the baggage compartment. We are issuing this AD to require actions to correct the unsafe condition on these products.

This AD becomes effective March 31, 2011.

Emergency AD on Fuselage for Piaggio P180

Thursday, December 23rd, 2010

AD 2011-01-51

This emergency AD was prompted by three incidents of the flight controls
jamming on Piaggio Model P-80 airplanes.

Since AD 2007-24-15 became effective, the FAA has received information on
two additional incidences where Piaggio Model P-180 airplanes encountered
water accumulation in the belly of the fuselage that froze and caused the
flight controls to jam.
