The FAA has issued AD2010-10-01 effective 10 May 2010. This AD applies to all our GA8 aircraft and supersedes AD2009-05-01. The good news is AD2010-10-01 is only adding an additional model aircraft to the applicability list and has no additional requirements to AD2009-05-01. Compliance with AD2010-10-01 will be required at the next repetitive inspection date required by AD2009-05-01. At this inspection shops should sign off compliance with AD2010-10-01 instead of AD2009-05-01.
