AD: McCauley

AD NUMBER: 2005-24-08
MANUFACTURER: McCauley
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2005-24-08
SUMMARY:
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain McCauley Propeller Systems propeller assemblies installed on BAE Systems (Operations) Limited Jetstream model 4100 series airplanes.

This AD requires removing certain propeller hubs from service at new reduced life limits and eddy current inspections (ECIs) of the propeller hub. This AD results from three reports of cracked propeller hubs.

We are issuing this AD to prevent cracked propeller hubs,which could cause failure of the propeller hub, blade separation, and loss of control of the airplane.
