Aero-Associations Speak Out Against Intentional GPS Interference

Aviation Community Has Not Received A Response From The FAA or DOD To A 2018 RTCA Report

NBAA is among the major aviation organizations that have sent a letter to the FAA and DOD, expressing concern about restrictions to airspace and airports caused by the intentional jamming of GPS and are seeking mitigations on the operational impact of these interference events. In a letter to the FAA and DOD, the organizations recognized the importance of DOD’s mission and the agency’s need to simulate the loss of GPS as part of its effort to defend and maintain the global navigation system. However, as aero-groups noted, the NAS has become increasingly reliant on GPS as the primary source of navigation and aircraft system functionality, while reducing reliance on ground-based navigational infrastructure.

AD: Leonardo S.p.a. Helicopters

AD 2021-02-03 Requires Various Repetitive Inspections Of The Main Rotor (MR) Damper

The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Leonardo S.p.a. (Leonardo) Model AW189 helicopters. This AD requires various repetitive inspections of the main rotor (MR) damper. This AD was prompted by reports of in-service MR damper failures and the development of an improved MR damper. This condition, if not corrected, could lead to loss of the lead-lag damping function of the MR blade, possibly resulting in damage to adjacent critical rotor components and subsequent loss control of the helicopter. The actions of this AD are intended to address the unsafe condition on these products. This AD is effective April 1, 2021.
