AD NUMBER: 2009-13-06 R1
MANUFACTURER: Airworthiness Directives; Piper
Aircraft, Inc. Airplanes PA-23
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2009-13-06
ACTION: Final rule.
SUMMARY: The FAA is revising an existing
airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Piper Aircraft, Inc.
Models PA-23, PA-23-160, PA-23-235, PA-23-250, PA-23-250 (Navy
UO-1), PA-E23-250, PA-31, PA-31-300, PA-31-325, PA-31-350, PA-31P,
PA-31P-350, PA-31T, PA-31T1, PA-31T2, PA-31T3, PA-42, PA-42-720,
and PA-42-1000 airplanes that are equipped with a baggage door in
the fuselage nose section (a nose baggage door).
That AD currently establishes life limits and replacement
requirements for safety-critical nose baggage door components and
repetitive inspections and lubrication of the nose baggage door
latching mechanism and lock assembly. This new AD removes the
requirement for the nose baggage door compartment interior light
inspection and retains the other requirements from AD 2009-13-06,
Amendment 39-15944. This AD was prompted by further investigation
and a request for an alternative method of compliance (AMOC).
DATES: This AD is effective November 3,
