Discussion

On November 25, 2003, FAA issued AD 2003-24-13, Amendment 39-13382 (68 FR 67789, December 4, 2003), which applies to certain Cessna Models 172R, 172S, 182S, 182T, T182T, 206H, and T206H airplanes that are equipped with a Honeywell KAP 140 autopilot computer system installed on the center instrument control panel near the throttle. This AD requires you to install an update to the operating software of the KAP 140 autopilot computer system, change the unit's part number, and change the software modification identification tag.

Need for the Correction

The FAA inadvertently duplicated affected airplane serial numbers for Model T206H airplanes in the applicability section of this AD. We also inadvertently included serial number T20608368 for Model T206H airplanes in the applicability section of this AD that is not affected by this AD. This correction is needed to ensure that the affected airplane owners/operators do not have unnecessary action performed on their airplanes.
