SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2008-09-02
SUMMARY: We are superseding an existing airworthiness
directive (AD) for the products listed above.
This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness
information (MCAI) issued by an aviation authority of another
country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation
The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as: Further to a new
fracture in flight of a CAP 10B wing in June 2003, the
investigation in process seems to point out that a wrong
application of CAP 10B Service Bulletin No. 16 (CAP 10B-57-004)
would lead to the impossibility of detecting the potential spar
damage while performing the Type Certificate holder upper spar
We are issuing this AD to require actions to correct the unsafe
condition on these products.
