AD: Saab

AD NUMBER: 2004-14-11
MANUFACTURER: SAAB
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2004-14-11
SUMMARY: This amendment supersedes an existing airworthiness directive (AD), applicable to certain Saab Model SAAB 2000 series airplanes, that currently requires repetitive inspections for discrepancies of the upper and lower areas of the backup struts in the left and right nacelles; and corrective actions, if necessary. This amendment requires repetitive inspections for cracks in the lower areas of the backup struts, and corrective actions if necessary. This action also requires the eventual replacement of the backup struts with new, improved struts, which terminates the repetitive inspections. The actions specified by this AD are intended to prevent failure of the backup struts in the left and right nacelles due to fatigue cracking, which could result in loss of fail-safe redundancy in the design of the nacelle in terms of load capability, and consequent separation of the engine from the airplane and subsequent reduced controllability of the airplane. This action is intended to address the identified unsafe condition.
