Cessna 172 and 172S AD

New SAIB Addresses Alternate Method of Compliance to Cessna AD
The FAA issued a Special Airworthiness Information Bulletin (SAIB) last week to inform the public about an alternative method of compliance (AMOC) to an airworthiness directive (AD) issued in 2001 that affects certain Cessna 172 and 172S airplanes. This AD (2001-06-17) requires a one-time inspection for proper engine idle speed and fuel control mixture setting and adjustment, as necessary. This AD also requires incorporating engine operating procedures into the pilot’s operating handbook/airplane flight manual.

The SAIB announces the availability of Cessna global AMOC 2001-06-17, dated August 13, 2014, which will facilitate compliance with the applicable AD. To view both the SAIB and the Cessna Global AMOC, visit: http://go.usa.gov/svGA.
