MANUFACTURER: REIMS AVIATION S.A.: SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive
2007-26-08 SUMMARY: We are adopting a
new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above.
This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information
(MCAI) issued by an aviation authority of another country to
identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation
The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as:
On several occasions, leaks of the landing gear emergency
blowdown bottle have been reported. Investigations revealed that
the leakage was located on the nut manometer because of a design
deficiency in the bottle head.
If left uncorrected, the internal bottle pressure could not be
maintained to an adequate level and could result in a malfunction,
failing to extend landing gears during emergency situations.
We are issuing this AD to require actions to correct the unsafe
condition on these products.
