Discussion

On April 13, 2004, FAA issued AD 2004-08-15, Amendment 39-13584 (69 FR 21393), that applies to all Goodrich TAWS8000 terrain awareness warning systems (TAWS) that are installed on airplanes. This AD requires you to inspect the TAWS installation and modify any TAWS where both the TAWS and any other device are connected to the same baro set potentiometer. This AD also prohibits future installation or reconfiguration of any TAWS8000 TAWS that does not incorporate hardware “Mod C”.

Need for the Correction

The FAA incorrectly referred to paragraph (d)(1) in the Compliance column of paragraph (e)(2). The correct reference is (e)(1). This action corrects the table in paragraph (e) of AD 2004-08-15, Amendment 39-13584.

This correction is needed to ensure that the affected airplane owners/operators do the corrective action after the inspection required in paragraph (e)(1).
