AD: MARS A.S. Parachutes

AD 2022-07-05 Identifies The Unsafe Condition As The Length Of The Ripcord Between The Pins Being Too Long

The FAA is superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2022-05-09, which applied to certain MARS A.S. emergency parachutes.

AD 2022-05-09 required removing emergency parachutes with certain manufacture dates or serial numbers from service. Since the FAA issued AD 2022-0509, the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) superseded its mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) to correct an unsafe condition on this aviation product. The MCAI identifies the unsafe condition as the length of the ripcord between the pins being too long, which could cause a malfunction of the emergency parachute. This AD retains the actions required by AD 2022-05-09 and expands the applicability. This AD is effective April 5, 2022.

Supplementary Information: The FAA issued AD 2022-05-09, Amendment 39-21960 (87 FR 10712, February 25, 2022) (AD 2022-05-09), for certain MARS A.S. ATL-88/90-1B (commercially known as ATL-15 SL) emergency parachutes with an extension of static line made of Microline cord. AD 2022-05-09 was prompted by MCAI originated by EASA, which is the Technical Agent for the Member States of the European Union. EASA issued EASA Emergency AD 2022-0018-E, dated January 28, 2022, to address malfunction of the emergency parachute. AD 2022-05-09 required removing emergency parachutes with certain manufacture dates or serial numbers from service. The FAA issued AD 202205-09 to address failure of an emergency parachute to deploy when needed.
