FAA–2013–0724 Model J-2 airplanes equipped with wing lift struts

Print Email
We propose to revise airworthiness directive (AD) 99-26-19 
that applies to certain The New Piper Aircraft, Inc. Model J-2 
airplanes equipped with wing lift struts. AD 99-26-19 currently 
requires repetitively inspecting the wing lift struts for dents and 
corrosion; repetitively inspecting the wing lift strut forks for 
cracks; replacing any dented or corroded wing lift strut; replacing any 
cracked wing lift strut fork; and repetitively replacing the wing lift 
strut forks at specified times for certain airplanes. AD 99-26-19 also 
currently requires incorporating a ``NO STEP'' placard on the wing lift 
strut. Since we issued AD 99-26-19, we have been informed that 
paragraph (c) is being misinterpreted and causing confusion. This 
proposed AD would clarify the intent of the language currently in 
paragraph (c) of AD 99-26-19 and would retain all other requirements of 
AD 99-26-19. We are proposing this AD to correct the unsafe condition 
on these products.
