AD NUMBER: 2012-17-01
PRODUCT: Goodyear Aviation Tires, part number 299K63-1 (Brazilian made new tires only), installed on various transport category airplanes, including but not limited to Bombardier, Inc. Model CL-600-2B19 airplanes.
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2012-17-01
ACTION: Final Rule, request for comments.
SUMMARY: This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by the aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product.
The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as tire tread separations and tread-area bulges on the main landing gear tires due to low adhesion in the tread shoulder area. The unsafe condition is specific to Brazilian produced new tires, size H29x9.0-15, only; retread tires are not affected by this AD. This condition, if not detected and corrected, could cause the main landing gear tires to fail during takeoff or landing. The failure may cause damage to the airplane structure, flaps, engine, and wheel well and result in reduced controllability of the airplane.
DATES: This AD is effective September 13, 2012. Comments on this AD are due by October 15, 2012.
