AD: Air Tractor

AD NUMBER: 2008-26-01
MANUFACTURER: Air Tractor
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2008 -26 -01
SUMMARY:
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) to supersede AD 2008-11-17, which applies to certain Air Tractor, Inc. Models AT-200, AT-300, AT-400, AT-500, AT-600, and AT-800 series airplanes. AD 2008-11-17 currently requires you to install an overturn skid plate kit or a modification to the overturn skid plate already installed. Since we issued AD 2008-11-17, the manufacturer has notified us that Model AT-401B airplanes also need a modification to the overturn skid plate. Consequently, this AD would retain the actions of AD 2008-11-17 and add the requirement to modify the overturn skid plate installed on Model AT-401B airplanes. We are issuing this AD to prevent the front and rear connections of the overturn skid plate to the airplane from breaking, which could allow foreign debris to enter the cockpit during an airplane overturn.This condition, if not corrected, could lead to pilot injury.
