New approach to control cables
Aircraft owners, operators and maintainers need to be aware of a new approach being taken by CASA to the mandatory replacement of a range of primary flight control cable assemblies. This relates to AD/GENERAL/87 Primary Flight Control Cable Assembly Retirement.
The new approach will offer an inspection regime instead of the mandatory replacement of all affected flight control assemblies at 15 years time in service. This will provide relief from the cost and time needed to replace all affected flight control assemblies.
Full details can be viewed at New approach to control cable replacement.
