directive (AD) for all AeroSpace Technologies of Australia Pty Ltd.
(ASTA) Models N22B and N24A airplanes. This AD requires you to
visually inspect the ailerons for damage and replace if necessary;
adjust the engine power levers aural warning microswitches; set
flap extension and flap down operation limitations; and fabricate
and install cockpit flap extension and flap down operation
restriction placards. This AD is the result of mandatory continuing
airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by the airworthiness
authority for Australia. We are issuing this AD to prevent damage
to the aileron due to airplane operation and pre-existing and
undetected damage, which could result in failure of the aileron.
Such failure could lead to reduced or loss of control of the
