Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.


Final rule; correction.


The FAA is correcting an airworthiness directive (AD) that has published in the Federal Register. That AD applies to the products listed above. The reissue date of September 24, 1986, of the MU-2B-60 airplane flight manual (AFM) in table 3 of the Compliance section (e)(1)(i) is incorrect, in that it is “September 24, 1985,” instead of “September 24, 1986.” This document corrects this error. In all other respects, the original document remains the same.


This final rule; correction is effective November 23, 2010. The effective date for AD 2010-10-17 remains July 22, 2010.

Airworthiness Directive 2010-10-17, amendment 39-16296 (75 FR 34349), which supersedes Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2006-17-01, AD 2006-15-07, AD 2000-02-25, and AD 97-25-02, currently retains from AD 2006-17-01 the inspection of the engine torque indication system and possible recalibration of the torque pressure transducers and requires incorporating all revisions up to and including the latest revisions of the AFM for certain MHI various Models MU-2B airplanes.

As published, table 3 specific to the MHI MU-2B-60 airplane stating that the MU-2B-60 AFM has a reissued date of September 24, 1986, in the Compliance section (e) is incorrect, in that it is “September 24, 1985,” instead of “September 24, 1986.”

No other part of the preamble or regulatory information has been changed; therefore, only the changed portion of the final rule is being published in the Federal Register.

The effective date of this AD remains July 22, 2010.
