AD NUMBER: 2005-14-02
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2005-14-02
SUMMARY: The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness
directive (AD) for all Empresa Brasileira de Aeronautica S.A.
(EMBRAER) Model EMB-135 and Model EMB-145, -145ER, -145MR, -145LR,
-145XR, -145MP, and -145EP airplanes. This AD requires inspecting
to determine the part number of the left and right engine fire
handles; and replacing the engine fire handles with engine fire
handles having different part numbers if necessary.
This AD is prompted by cases of the internal circuit of the
engine fire handle failing. We are issuing this AD to prevent
failure of the internal circuit of the engine fire handle that
could disable the fuel shut-off valves and the discharge of the
fire-extinguishing agent, which, in the event of a fire, could
result in the inability to extinguish a fire.
