adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Learjet
Model 31, 31A, 35, 35A (C-21A), 36, 36A, 55, 55B, and 55C
airplanes, and Model 45 airplanes.
This AD requires inspecting for unsealed gaps on the pylon side
of the engine firewall and cleaning/sealing any unsealed gap; and,

liquids or fire through the engine firewall into the engine pylon,
which could lead to fire inside the airplane.
