SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2012-15-17

SUMMARY: This AD was prompted by a report that chafing was detected between the autopilot electrical wiring conduit and the wing bottom skin. This AD requires modifying the wiring installation on the right-hand wing. The FAA is issuing this AD to prevent sparking due to electrical chafing when flammable vapors are present in the area, which could cause an uncontrolled fire.
DATES: This AD becomes effective September 12, 2012.
