AD: Viking Air Limited Airplanes

AD NUMBER: 2019-02-05

PRODUCT: Certain Viking Air Limited Model CL-215-1A10 and CL-215-6B11 (CL-215T Variant) airplanes.

ACTION: Final Rule.

SUMMARY: We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2013-11-03, which applied to the product listed above.

AD 2013-11-03 required repetitive detailed inspections for cracking of the left-hand (LH) and right-hand (RH) wing lower skin, and repair if necessary.

This AD requires repetitive borescope inspections of the LH and RH wing lower skin and repetitive eddy current inspections of the LH and RH wing front and rear lower spar caps.

This AD was prompted by reports of a fractured wing lower rear spar cap and reinforcing strap and a report of cracking of the wing lower skin and rear spar.

DATES: This AD is effective March 22, 2019.

COST: The FAA estimates that this AD affects 4 airplanes of U.S. registry. Operators may incur the following costs in order to comply with this AD:

  • Borescope and eddy current inspections 8 work-hours × $85 per hour = $680 per inspection cycle per aircraft
FMI: AD
