AD revision for Doors on Piper Chieftain, Navajo, Apache, Aztec and Cheyenne Aircraft

Thursday, September 29th, 2011

The FAA is revising an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Piper Aircraft, Inc. Models PA-23, PA-23-160, PA-23-235, PA-23-250, PA-23-250 (Navy UO-1), PA-E23-250, PA-31, PA-31-300, PA-31-325, PA-31-350, PA-31P, PA-31P-350, PA-31T, PA-31T1, PA-31T2, PA-31T3, PA-42, PA-42-720, and PA-42-1000 airplanes that are equipped with a baggage door in the fuselage nose section (a nose baggage door). That AD currently establishes life limits and replacement requirements for safety-critical nose baggage door components and repetitive inspections and lubrication of the nose baggage door latching mechanism and lock assembly. This new AD removes the requirement for the nose baggage door compartment interior light inspection and retains the other requirements from AD 2009-13-06, Amendment 39-15944. This AD was prompted by further investigation and a request for an alternative method of compliance (AMOC). The FAA is issuing this AD to correct the unsafe condition on these products.

DATES: This AD is effective November 3, 2011.

Special Airworthiness Bulletin for Piper Aircraft

Monday, October 4th, 2010

This Special Airworthiness Information Bulletin (SAIB) alerts you, owners,
or operators of Piper Aircraft Inc. (Piper) airplane models of a potential
airworthiness concern regarding failure of the turnbuckle/control cable
assembly for the horizontal stabilator. This failure is due to stress
corrosion cracking at the turnbuckle/control cable assembly leading to loss
of pitch control.

At this time, the FAA has determined that this airworthiness concern is not
an unsafe condition that would warrant airworthiness directive (AD) action
under Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 39.

For the following models, ALL serial numbers.

Airworthiness Directives, Piper Aircraft, PA-46-350P, PA-46R-350T, PA-46-500 Published 12/24/2008

This is the AD # and Name: 2008-26-11 Piper Aircraft, Inc.: Amendment 39-15777; Docket No. FAA- 2008-1085; Directorate Identifier 2008-CE-057-AD.

Effective Date
(a) This AD becomes effective on January 28, 2009.

ACTION: Final rule.

SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Piper Aircraft, Inc. (Piper) Models PA-46-350P, PA-46R-350T, and PA-46- 500TP airplanes. This AD requires you to install a stall warning heat control modification kit. This AD results from ice forming on the stall vane heater during flights into icing conditions with the landing gear down. We are issuing this AD to prevent ice from forming on the stall vane, which may result in failure of the stall warning system. This failure could result in the pilot being unaware of an approaching stall situation.
