AD NUMBER: 2006-16-17
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2006-16-17 SUMMARY: The FAA is
adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Embraer
Model EMB-135 and -145 series airplanes.
This AD requires determining the torque values of the screws
that attach the seat tracks to the airplane, and corrective action
This AD results from a report of undertorqued screws.
We are issuing this AD to prevent improper torque of those
screws, which in the case of a hard landing or a high deceleration
impact condition could result in damage to the seat and possible
subsequent injury to the passenger.
