AD: Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation Helicopters

AD 2021-08-18 Prompted By The Discovery That Certain Part Numbers Listed In AD 2021-04-16 Are Incorrect

The FAA is superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2021-04-16 which applied to certain Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation (Sikorsky) Model S-92A helicopters. AD 2021-04-16 required a one-time inspection of the landing gear for components with non-conforming threads and removal of any non-conforming threaded hinge pin and main landing gear (MLG) and nose landing gear (NLG) actuator pins. AD 2021-04-16 also prohibited installing certain part-numbered hinge and actuator pins on any helicopter. This AD requires the same actions but corrects erroneous part numbers. This AD was prompted by the discovery that certain part numbers listed in AD 2021-04-16 are incorrect. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products. This AD is effective April 29, 2021.

ANN's Daily Aero-Linx (04.19.21)

Aero Linx: The Regional Air Cargo Carriers Association Recognizing that this dynamic, growing industry lacked an effective and dedicated voice representing it before the federal government, the aviation community, and the media, RACCA was formed in 2002. Since then, the association has been extremely fortunate to count as its members more than 95 percent of all aircraft operators eligible for membership. This means about 1,000 aircraft serving smaller communities each day in the United States and internationally are operated by RACCA members. One of RACCA’s primary goals has been, and will continue to be, enhancing the safety of all-cargo flight operations.
