Airworthiness Directives; Models 208 and 208B

2003-21-04 CESSNA AIRCRAFT COMPANY:
Amendment 39-13339; Docket No. 2003-CE-41-AD.

Airworthiness Directives; Cessna Aircraft Company Models 208 and 208B Airplanes

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule; request for comments.

SUMMARY: The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Cessna Aircraft Company (Cessna) Models 208 and 208B airplanes.
    This AD requires you to inspect the right inboard forward flap bell crank for cracks, deformation, and missing/incomplete welds. If cracks, deformation, or missing/incomplete welds are found, the AD would require you to immediately replace the flap bell crank or temporarily incorporate certain flap limitations. This AD is the result of reports of cracks and missing/incomplete welds in the right inboard forward flap bell crank. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of the right inboard forward flap bell crank due to cracks, deformation, or missing/ incomplete welds. Such failure could lead to damage to the flap system and surrounding structure and result in reduced or loss of control of the airplane.

DATES: This AD becomes effective on October 21, 2003.

What Airplanes Are Affected by This AD?
   (c)    This AD affects the following airplane models and serial numbers that are certificated in any category:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Model                               Serial No.

                                   208B1018, 208B1020 through 208B1024,
                                   208B1026, and 208B1029 through
