AD: Leonardo S.p.a. Helicopters

AD 2022-22-03 Requires Inspecting The Forward Cabin Roof Ceiling Harnesses And Installation

The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Leonardo S.p.a. Model AB139 and AW139 helicopters. 

This AD was prompted by a report of smoke and fire in the cockpit. This AD requires inspecting the forward cabin roof ceiling harnesses and installation, as specified in a European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD, which is incorporated by reference. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products. This AD becomes effective November 17, 2022.

Supplementary Information: EASA, which is the Technical Agent for the Member States of the European Union, has issued EASA Emergency AD 2022-0209-E, dated October 12, 2022 (EASA AD 2022-0209-E), to correct an unsafe condition for certain serial-numbered Leonardo S.p.A. Helicopters, formerly Finmeccanica S.p.A, AgustaWestland S.p.A., Agusta S.p.A.; and AgustaWestland Philadelphia Corporation, formerly Agusta Aerospace Corporation, Model AB139 and AW139 helicopters.

This AD was prompted by a report of smoke and fire in the cockpit and subsequent reduced control of the helicopter. The FAA is issuing this AD to address improper installation of the forward cabin roof ceiling harnesses, which could result in damage of the electrical wiring, fire in the forward cabin roof ceiling, and possible loss of control of the helicopter. See EASA AD 2022-0209-E for additional background information.
