SUMMARY: The  FAA is correcting an airworthiness directive (AD) that published in the Federal  Register. That AD applies to the products listed above. The AD number, as shown  in the PART 39—AIRWORTHINESS DIRECTIVES section, is incorrect.  This document corrects that error. In all other respects, the original document  remains the same.

  • Airworthiness Directives; Eurocopter France Model AS 350 B, BA, B1, B2, B3, and  D, and Model AS355 E, F, F1, F2, and N Helicopters. 14 CFR Part 39 [Docket No. FAA–2010–0611; Directorate Identifier 2009–SW– 18–AD; Amendment 39– 16487; AD 2010–22–08] RIN 2120–AA64. SUMMARY: We are adopting a  new airworthiness directive (AD) for the Eurocopter France Model AS 350 B, BA,B1, B2, B3, and D, and Model AS355 E, F, F1, F2, and N helicopters, with certain  main rotor servo-controls and tail rotor servo-controls. This AD requires  replacing all servo-controls that are identified in the Applicability section of this  AD. This AD is prompted by an internal review conducted by the manufacturer  which revealed that some main and tail rotor servo-controls do not conform to the  approved design. The actions specified by this AD are intended to prevent the  distributor slide valve jamming in its sleeve, leading to reduced controllability of  the rotors and subsequent loss of control of thehelicopter.DATES: Effective  November 26, 2010.
