An incident in which the elevator controls on a Socata TBM 700 literally froze up and jammed because water accumulated in the fuselage and froze led to a French AD in October last year requiring compliance with a June 2000 Socata Service Bulletin calling for a new fuselage strainer draining system on the turboprop single. More than a year after the French directive, the FAA has issued a proposed AD to require the same compliance on nearly 80 U.S.-registered TBM 700s.
