AGENCY:

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION:

Final rule; correction.

SUMMARY:

This document makes a correction to Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2008-02-04, which was published in the Federal Register on January 22, 2008 (73 FR 3618), and applies to all Eclipse Aviation Corporation (Eclipse) Model EA500 airplanes. This AD requires incorporating a modification of the angle of attack (AOA) system, limits the applicability to airplanes under S/N 000065, and retains the operating limitations from AD 2007-13-11 until the modification is incorporated. The FAA incorrectly referenced the issue date of the AD as “January 9, 2007” instead of “January 9, 2008.” This document corrects the issue date.

DATES:

The effective date of this AD remains February 26, 2008, since the incorrect reference of the issue date of AD 2008-02-04 does not affect compliance.

Discussion

AD 2008-02-04, Amendment 39-15334 (73 FR 3618, January 22, 2008), affects Eclipse Model EA500 airplanes and currently:

  • Requires incorporating a modification of the angle of attack (AOA) probe;
  • Limits the applicability to airplanes under S/N 000065; and
  • Retains the operating limitations from AD 2007-13-11 until the modification is incorporated.

The FAA incorrectly referenced the issue date as “January 9, 2007” instead of “January 9, 2008.” This document corrects the issue date.
