AD NUMBER: 2007-25-14
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2007-25-14
SUMMARY: We are superseding an existing airworthiness
directive (AD) for Agusta S.p.A. (Agusta) Model AB139
This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness
information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority to identify
and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product.
The aviation authority of Italy, with which we have a bilateral
agreement, states in the MCAI: Field reports have shown that the
Agusta AB/AW139's Tailpipe Assembly is prone tocracks.
To prevent any cracks from developing into failure of the
exhaust tailpipe assembly * * *This AD retains the requirements of
the existing AD, but expands the applicability to include the
Agusta Model AW139 helicopters and includes modification procedures
to strengthen certain cracked areas that are outside the cowling
and are within certain allowable limits.
This AD requires actions that are intended to address the unsafe
condition of cracks in the tailpipe assembly.
