AD NUMBER: 2008-07-04
MANUFACTURER: APEX Aircraft
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2008-07-04 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 product.
The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as: A case of loose bond
(ungluing) of one mounting wooden block of the control stick base
cover, found during the cover reinstallation, was reported to the
Type Certificate Holder (TCH) and led to the issuance of the
'recommended' Service Bulletin(SB) No. 031004 in February 2004.
Since that date, other similar occurrences have been reported. This
SB in its revision 1, has therefore been reclassified 'mandatory'
by the TCH. We are issuing this AD to require actions to correct
the unsafe condition on these products.
