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 was described in PAD/GENERAL/87 Amdt 1 - Primary Flight Control Cable Terminals - Detailed Visual Inspections which closed for industry comment on 28 June 2017. The Summary of Responses can be found here. AD/GENERAL/87 Amdt 1 has now been published with a commencement date of 1 November 2017.
