Check the tightening torque of the MRH/mast assembly attachment bolts, in accordance with paragraph 2.B. of Eurocopter AS 365N ASB No. 62.00.22, or SA 365 C ASB No. 65.44, as applicable.

Background: Several reports were received of tightening torque loss detected on the main rotor hub-to-main rotor mast bolted attachment on Eurocopter assembled attachments with less than 300 operating hours. A loss of tightening torque can lead to deterioration of the MRH/mast attachment and possible loss of the main rotor.
