AD/BEECH 36/43 Amdt 3

Wing Bolt, Nut and Fitting

10/2022

 

Applicability:

All models of Textron Aviation (formerly Beechcraft) 36 series aeroplanes.

Requirement:

1.    Remove and inspect wing bolts, washers, nuts and fittings in accordance with Beechcraft Shop Manual 36-590001-3 Revision B16 Section 3 or Beechcraft Maintenance Manual 36-590001-9 Revision C11 Chapter 57, both as in force on the date of commencement of this AD.

2.    Retire wing bolts, washers and nuts from service and replace with new hardware in accordance with Beechcraft Shop Manual 36-590001-3 Revision B16 Section 3 or Beechcraft Maintenance Manual 36-590001-9 Revision C11 Chapter 57, both as in force on the date of commencement of this AD. Render unserviceable all hardware retired.

Note 1:  The bolt torque should be checked before removal for inspection or replacement to confirm bolt has been torqued to correct value. If the torque value is incorrect, other maintenance action may be required.

Compliance:

1.    a.     Unless inspection has already been accomplished in accordance with either of the requirement documents within 60 months from the initial installation of the wing bolts, inspect within 100 hours time in service (TIS) or two months from the commencement date of this AD, whichever occurs first.

b.    Re-inspect at intervals not to exceed 60 months from the previous inspection.

2.    Before 15 years (180 months) TIS after initial installation of the wing bolts.

 

This AD commences on 10 May 2022.

Background:

This AD makes mandatory the inspection and replacement periods for the wing attachment hardware detailed in the Requirement Document.

The original issue of this Airworthiness Directive became effective on 1 February 1996.

Amendment 1 of this AD added the Note to Requirement 2 and added the fittings as an item to be inspected when the wing bolts, washers and nuts are removed and inspected.

 

 

 

Amendment 2 of this AD removed the alternate means of compliance that had been issued to allow in-situ inspection of the wing attachment bolts and nuts and will require the manufacturer’s MPI.

Amendment 3 is issued to provide relief to compliance with Requirement 1 whilst the proposed airworthiness directive process occurs for a technical change to the airworthiness directive.
