|Proposed UK AD 1977: Piper PA-28 and PA-32: Wings - Lower Main Wing Spar Caps - Inspection|
The CAA have published their proposed Airworthiness Directive for the inspection of the lower main wing spar caps.
Following a joint CAA/EASA review of the FAA AD, it was determined that, since in Europe there is no legal distinction and documentation requirement between the accomplishment of 100-hours inspections and annual inspections,depending on the operation of the aeroplane, the FAA calculation method for FSH is inappropriate for the affected aeroplanes operated under EU regulations. Based on this determination, EASA/CAA have decided not to adopt the FAA AD.
This proposed AD is considered to be an interim action and further AD action may follow.
