FAA Proposes AD on Learjet 60 Fire Extinguishers

 - December 21, 2011, 9:45 AM

The FAA has issued an NPRM for an Airworthiness Directive targeting the Learjet 60 fire extinguishing system. It is prompted by two incidents of swapped fire-extinguishing wires and would require inspecting the electrical leads routed to the fire-extinguishing containers for proper identification and missing labels; to ensure the electrical leads are connected to the correct squibs; and corrective actions if necessary. The action would prevent the extinguishing agent of the fire-extinguishing container from being delivered to the wrong engine. The FAA is accepting comments until January 17.
