AD NUMBER: PL2005-05-52
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive
SUMMARY: Emergency AD 2005-05-51 was considered an
interim action to immediately require visual inspection of the
forward, aft, and auxiliary wing spars for cracks.
The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association believes the Federal
Aviation Administration is being shortsighted as the agency decides
whether or not to decommission two heavily used VOR radio
navigation aids (navaids) in southern New England.
It was only a matter of time before a new generation of aviators
started climbing the aeronautical ladder... without benefit of
(now) old-style "steam gauges." Well, it has started happening...
and this time, it's a family affair.
