AD: Grob-Werke

AD NUMBER: 2005-13-09
MANUFACTURER:
Grob-Werke (CORRECTION)
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2005-13-09
SUMMARY: The FAA adopts a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain GROB-WERKE Model G120A airplanes. This AD requires you to replace the main landing gear (MLG) up-lock hook assembly. This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by the airworthiness authority for Germany. We are issuing this AD to prevent the MLG from becoming jammed and not extending, which could result in loss of control of the airplane during landing. During the comment period for the notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) regarding this action, we received a comment recommending the incorporation of service information to install connecting bolts secured with cotter pins instead of connecting bolts secured with snap rings. All U.S.-registered airplanes currently have these actions incorporated so these actions do not impose an additional burden over that proposed in the NPRM and prior public comment is not necessary. However, we are reopening the comment period to allow the public the chance to comment on these additional actions.
