AD: Mitsubishi

AD NUMBER: 2010-10-17

MANUFACTURER: Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. Various Models MU-2B Airplanes
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2010-10-17

SUMMARY: The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2006-17-01, AD 2006-15-07, AD 2000-02-25, and AD 97-25-02, which applies to certain Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI) various Models MU-2B airplanes. An FAA MU-2B safety evaluation resulted in the standardization of the MU-2B specific training and the FAA-accepted pilot operating checklists through a special Federal aviation regulation (SFAR). MHI revised the airplane flight manuals (AFMs) to align them with the information in that training and the checklists. In addition, incorporating all AFM revisions up to and including this latest AFM revision will incorporate all AFM compliance actions required by the four above-mentioned ADs. This AD would retain from AD 2006-17-01 the inspection of the engine torque indication system and possible recalibration of the torque pressure transducers and would require incorporating all revisions up to and including the latest revisions of the AFM. We are issuing this AD to correct inconsistencies in critical operating procedures between the MU-2B specific training, the FAA-accepted pilot operating checklists, and the AFMs, which, if not corrected, could result in the pilot inadvertently taking inappropriate actions in critical operating conditions.
