FAA Reissues Ercoupe AD


Ercoupe AD

August 30, 2012 - Prompted by the report of an in-flight breakup of a Univair Aircraft Corporation Model ERCO 415-D Ercoupe that crashed after an in-flight breakup due to possible aileron flutter, the FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Univair Aircraft Corporation Models (ERCO) 415-C, 415-CD, 415-D, E, G; (Forney) F-1 and F-1A; (Alon) A-2 and A2-A; and (Mooney) M10 airplanes.

The original AD currently requires an inspection of the aileron balance assembly and ailerons for cracks and excessive looseness of associated parts with the required repair or replacement of defective parts as necessary.

This new AD adds airplanes to the Applicability section; requires inspections of the ailerons, aileron balance assembly, and aileron rigging for looseness or wear, requires repair or replacement of parts as necessary; and requires a report to be sent back to the FAA with the inspection results.
