AD NUMBER: 2008-08-07
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2008-08-07
SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive
(AD) for the products listed above.
This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness
information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of another
country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation
The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as: A crack has been
found in an axle adaptor during fatigue testing.
It was found that the internal edges of the dowel holes did not
have the correct radius and the crack had developed from the edge
of one of the dowel holes. A crack in the axle adaptor can cause
the axle adaptor to fail and ultimately lead to loss of [the]
wheels and total loss of brake capability.
We are issuing this AD to require actions to correct the unsafe
condition on these products.
