Airworthiness Directive Alert
The FAA has released an Airworthiness Directive regarding certain Textron/Beechcraft products which has an immediate effective date with corrections required within 30 days.

Our intent is to bring this to your attention quickly as this covers model aircraft popular with our customer base and requires your immediate attention to avoid being grounded.

This AD requires inspecting the right aileron flight control cable end fittings (terminal attachment fittings) and replacing any damaged cable assembly. This AD was prompted by reports of cracked and fractured right aileron flight control cable end fittings .
