AD NUMBER: 2013-08-07
PRODUCT: Eurocopter France (ECF) Model AS332C, L, and L1 helicopters.
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2013-08-07
ACTION: Final Rule
SUMMARY: The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the product listed above to require an initial and repetitive inspections of the outer skin, butt strap, and fuselage frame for a crack and modification of the helicopter.
This AD was prompted by an AD issued by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical Agent for the Member States of the European Union, which states that a crack was discovered in a fuselage frame during a daily check.
The actions of this AD are intended to detect a crack, to prevent loss of airframe structural integrity and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.
DATES: This AD is effective May 23, 2013.
