AD: Socata

AD NUMBER: 2009-13-05

MANUFACTURER: SOCATA Model TBM 700 Airplanes
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2009-13-05

 

SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by the aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as:

  • During a SOCATA flight test, it has been noted some difficulties for the pilot to release oxygen.
  • After investigation it has been found that, due to the design of the oxygen generator release pin, one of the mask's lanyard linked to the pin can be jammed when it is pulled by a pilot or a passenger.
  • This condition, if not corrected, would lead, in case of an emergency procedure due to decompression to a risk of generator fault with subsequent lack of oxygen on crew and/or passenger.
  • This AD requires actions that are intended to address the unsafe condition described in the MCAI.
