SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2013-14-11
ACTION: Final Rule, Request for Comments
SUMMARY: This AD requires revising the airplane flight manual (AFM) by incorporating an emergency procedure for uncommanded yaw motion. This AD was prompted by reports of airplanes experiencing uncommanded rudder movements while in flight.
The FAA is issuing this AD to advise the flightcrew of procedures to address a possible failure of the voltage regulator inside the yaw damper actuator that could lead to uncommanded yaw movement and consequent loss of the ability to control the airplane.
DATES: This AD becomes effective August 9, 2013. Comments on this AD are due by September 9, 2013.
