Air Plains Services Statement on FAA Emergency AD regarding Lycoming Engines
Wellington, KS. (August 11, 2017) – Air Plains Services has already contacted its customers impacted by the FAA’s proposed Airworthiness Directive regarding a mandatory inspection of certain Lycoming engines installed or overhauled since November 2015.
“We’ve been working with our customers on this since the Lycoming Service Bulletin came out last week,” said Mike Kelley, president of Air Plains Services. “We stay connected with all our customers anyway and on critical issues like this, we like to get ahead of the issue.”
The emergency AD was issued by the FAA late Wednesday (Aug. 9), following the release of a Mandatory Service Bulletin (632B) by Lycoming Engines issued August 4. The AD requires owners of Lycoming engines installed or overhauled between November 2015 and February 2017 to inspect and potentially replace off-spec connecting rod small-end bushings. The affected engines include about 20 Lycoming O360 engines sold by Air Plains Services, and those customers have all been contacted.
For more information, contact Air Plains Services at 1.800.752.8481.
