AD: Grob

AD NUMBER: 2009-12-15

MANUFACTURER: GROB-Werke Model G120A Airplanes
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2009-12-15

 

SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by the aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as: The manufacturer has advised of receiving a report from a G 120A operator of an electrical fire caused by a chafed/scorched cable loom. It has been found that the RH main power distribution cable chafed on the instrument panel combing. It is likely that vibrations made the wiring to chafe. The chafing caused eventually electrical arcing and subsequently an in-flight fire that damaged partially the instrument panel cover. This AD requires actions that are intended to address the unsafe condition described in the MCAI.
