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

2006-01-11 R1 THE CESSNA AIRCRAFT COMPANY: Amendment 39-14515; Docket No. FAA-2005-21275; Directorate Identifier 2005-CE-28-AD.

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule; correction.

SUMMARY: This document clarifies the intent of AD 2006-01-11, which was published in the Federal Register on January 12, 2006 (71 FR 1941). AD 2006-01-11 applies to Cessna Models 208 and 208B airplanes and requires the installation of a pilot assist handle and deicing boots on the cargo pod and landing gear fairings; and the incorporation of changes to the Pilot's Operating Handbook (POH) and FAA-Approved Airplane Flight Manual (AFM). The compliance time for the AFM/POH change currently reads "prior to further flight" after the installation of the pilot assist handle, which is required within 125 days after the effective date. The AFM/POH change is related to operation in ground icing conditions and should not be attributed to the pilot assist handle installation. Therefore, the compliance time should also be within 125 days after the effective date. Additionally, the requirement of installing the accessory kit or installing a placard should only apply to those airplanes equipped with a cargo pod and pneumatic deicing boots. The way it currently is written makes it apply to all airplanes equipped with pneumatic deicing boots. This AD action rewords the compliance time and the wording for the installation or placard requirement to reflect the above concerns.

DATES: The effective date of this AD remains February 22, 2006.
