AD: Hamilton Standard

AD NUMBER: 2006-10-07
MANUFACTURER: Hamilton Standard
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2006-10-07
SUMMARY:
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Hamilton Sundstrand model 14RF-9 propellers. This AD requires visual, feeler gage, and tap test inspections of certain serial number (SN) propeller blades of the "+E" repair configuration for blade delamination, and removing the blade from service if the blade fails inspection. This AD also requires removing those serial numbered propeller blades from service by March 1, 2007. This AD results from reports of delaminated blade fiberglass repair patches that allowed corrosion to form on the aluminum blade spar under the patch. We are issuing this AD to prevent blade failure that could result in separation of a propeller blade and loss of control of the airplane.
