AD: BAE

AD NUMBER: 2006-01-09
MANUFACTURER: BAE Systems
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2006-01-09
SUMMARY:
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all BAE Systems (Operations) Limited Model BAe 146-100A and -200A series airplanes. This AD requires inspecting the nose landing gear (NLG) assembly to determine the part number of the NLG main fitting sub-assembly. For subject NLG main fitting sub-assemblies, this AD also requires determining the total number of accumulated landings on a subject NLG main fitting sub-assembly, and eventually replacing the NLG assembly. This AD results from a report indicating that the airplane maintenance manual contains incorrect safe-life limit information for certain NLG assemblies. We are issuing this AD to ensure that affected NLG fitting sub-assemblies are removed from service before they reach their approved safe-life limit. Operating with an NLG fitting sub-assembly that is beyond its approved safe-life limit could result in failure of the NLG and consequent loss of directional control on the ground and major structural damage to the airplane.
