AD: BAE Systems

AD NUMBER: 2008-04-16
MANUFACTURER: BAE Systems
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2008-04-16
SUMMARY:
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above.

This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product.

The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as: Corrosion has been reported beneath the heat shield which is located around the APU (auxiliary power unit) exhaust outlet.

Such corrosion could result in the fuselage being unable to sustain horizontal and vertical stabiliser loads. This is considered as potentially hazardous/catastrophic.

* * * The unsafe condition is that the horizontal or vertical stabilizer might collapse under excessive load, resulting in loss of control of the airplane.

We are issuing this AD to require actions to correct the unsafe condition on these products.
