Requirement: 1. Perform the inspection procedure and the leak test procedure as detailed in, Section 6 Action, of B-N Service Bulletin 310 Issue 1 dated 10 October 2005 or later revision approved by the United Kingdom Civil Aviation Authority.
2. Perform a check of the drain traps for moisture.

Background: Incidences have been reported to B-N Group where cracks have been found in the inner shell of the pitot/static pressure heads.

This condition has been determined to be potentially hazardous.
