SUMMARY:  This AD was prompted by reports that cracks were found on the door mechanism actuator shaft assemblies of the nose landing gear (NLG).

This AD requires repetitive inspections of the NLG door mechanism actuator shaft assemblies having certain part numbers, and corrective actions if necessary.

  • Inspections - 21 work-hours × $85 per hour = $1,785 per inspection cycle. Parts - N/A. Total coat $1,785 per aircraft per inspection cycle.
  • Modification for Model CN-235 airplanes - 10 work-hours × $85 per hour = $850. Parts $33,626. Total cost per aircraft - $34,476.
  • Replacement - 14 work-hours × $85 per hour = $1,190. Parts - $18,720. Total cost per aircraft - $19,910.
