Discussion

On June 10, 2005, FAA issued AD 2005-12-20, Amendment 39-14136 (70 FR 35370, June 20, 2005), which applies to certain The Lancair Company (Lancair) Model LC41-550FG airplanes.

We incorrectly referenced the affected airplane model as LC41-550F. The correct airplane model is LC41-550FG. This action corrects the regulatory text.

This AD requires both visual and dye penetrant inspections of the elevator torque tube assembly for cracks. If a crack is found, this AD requires replacement with a modified assembly that incorporates a steel doubler. This AD also requires replacement of the modified elevator torque tube assembly every 300 hours time-in-service or 18 months (whichever occurs first).

Need for the Correction

This correction is needed to ensure that the affected airplane model is correct and to eliminate misunderstanding in the field.
