AD 2024-08-09 GA8 Electical Bonding

June 12, 2024

This AD applies to all 16 CAP GA8 Airvans and was issued to correct an unsafe condition identified as insufficient electrical bonding of the solenoid (relay) box assembly that could result in degraded performance, errors, or intermittent failures of equipment connected to electrical Bus 1, Bus 2, associated electrical control, and protective devices fitted within or attached to the solenoid box.

This AD requires inspecting for an existing wire connecting the relay box earth point to the ground power socket, and if one is not present, installing a mechanical connection. The part required is a 32” wire and may be sourced locally.
