AD: Avidyne

AD NUMBER: 2009-05-05
MANUFACTURER: Primary Flight Displays
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2009-05-05
SUMMARY:
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) to supersede AD 2008-06-28 R1, which applies to certain Avidyne Corporation (Avidyne) Primary Flight Displays (PFDs) (part numbers(P/Ns) 700-00006-000, -001, -002, -003, and -100) that are installed on airplanes. AD 2008-06-28R1 currently requires you to do a check of the maintenance records and inspection of the PFD (if necessary) to determine if an affected serial number PFD is installed and incorporate (if necessary) operational limitations. Since we issued AD 2008-06-28 R1, Avidyne developed a factory modification that will correct the problems on these Avidyne PFDs and also factory modified certain serial number PFDs. To terminate the operational limitations of AD 2008-06-28R1, this AD adds actions to assure any affected serial number PFD complies with one of the following: Passes the air data system performance verification test, receives the factory modification, or is replaced with a PFD that has complied with one of the previous two conditions or is not one of the affected serial number PFDs. Consequently, this AD will retain the actions from the previous AD until the added terminating action has been complied with. We are issuing this AD to prevent certain conditions from existing when PFDs display incorrect attitude, altitude,and airspeed information. This could result in airspeed/altitude mismanagement or spatial disorientation of the pilot with consequent loss of airplane control, inadequate traffic separation,or controlled flight into terrain
