AD: Pilatus Aircraft Ltd. Airplanes

AD 2021-01-05 Requires Modifying The Electrical Harness Installation

The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Pilatus Aircraft Ltd. (Pilatus) Model PC-24 airplanes.

The MCAI identifies the unsafe condition as electrical harness installations on PC-24 airplanes that are not in compliance with the approved design. This unsafe condition could lead to wire chafing and potential arcing or failure of wires having the incorrect length, possibly resulting in loss of system redundancy, or generation of smoke and smell, or loss of power plant fire protection function. This AD requires modifying the electrical harness installation. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products. This AD is effective March 30, 2021.
