SUMMARY: This AD requires installing a
rudder-aileron interconnect cable system shield kit and securing
any items stowed in the baggage compartment, using tie downs and/or
a cargo net until the cable shield kit is installed. We are issuing
this AD to prevent jamming of the rudder-aileron interconnect
cables by unsecured items in the baggage compartment, which could
result in failure of the rudder-aileron interconnect cable system.
This failure could lead to loss of control.
