Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION:

Final rule; correction.

SUMMARY:

This document makes a correction to Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2006-01-11 R1, which published in the Federal Register on March 16, 2006 (71 FR 13538), and applies to all The Cessna Aircraft Company (Cessna) Models 208 and 208B airplanes. AD 2006-01-11 R1 requires the installation of a pilot assist handle and deicing boots on the cargo pod and landing gear fairings; and the incorporation of changes to the Pilot's Operating Handbook (POH) and FAA-approved Airplane Flight Manual (AFM). Current language in paragraph (e)(4) of AD 2006-01-11 R1 regarding the placard requirement inadvertently states: “You may insert a copy of this AD into the appropriate sections of the POH to comply with this action.” This does not meet the intent of the AD. This document corrects that paragraph by removing the language referenced above.

DATES:

The effective date of this AD (2006-01-11 R1) remains February 22, 2006.

Discussion

On March 10, 2006, the FAA issued AD 2006-01-11 R1, Amendment 39-14515 (71 FR 13538, March 16, 2006), which applies to all Cessna Models 208 and 208B airplanes. AD 2006-01-11 R1 requires the installation of a pilot assist handle and deicing boots on the cargo pod and landing gear fairings; and the incorporation of changes to the Pilot's Operating Handbook (POH) and FAA-approved Airplane Flight Manual (AFM). Current language in paragraph (e)(4) of AD 2006-01-11 R1 regarding the placard requirement inadvertently states: “You may insert a copy of this AD into the appropriate sections of the POH to comply with this action.” This does not meet the intent of the AD.

Need for the Correction

This correction is needed to not allow a method of compliance that was inadvertently included in the AD and does not address the unsafe condition.
