CRJ 100, 400, 700, & 900 AD to detect and correct damaged and detached WLPAs and BOPs
"This AD requires repetitive detailed inspections of the cage assembly, window louver panel assemblies (WLPAs), and blowout panels (BOPs), and corrective action if necessary. This AD was prompted by reports of several cases of damaged or detached decompression WLPAs and BOPs. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct damaged and detached WLPAs and BOPs. A detached WLPA or BOP could delay smoke detection in the cargo compartment, and in the event of a cargo compartment fire, this could lead to an uncontrolled cargo compartment fire."
G650 aircraft AD to detect and correct inadequate torque on the self-sealing coupling
"We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation Model GVI airplanes. This AD requires repetitive breakaway torque checks and torquing of the brake inlet self-sealing couplings. This AD also requires revising the airplane flight manual to include procedures to follow in the event of certain display indications. This AD was prompted by reports of the self-sealing couplings on the brake inlet fitting that have been found backed out of the fully seated position. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct inadequate torque on the self-sealing coupling. This condition could result in an unannounced total loss of braking capability on one or multiple brakes, which could result in a runway overrun or asymmetrical braking that can lead to a lateral runway excursion."
Cost = $170 per check/torque cycle
