The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Piper Model PA-34-200 Seneca airplanes. This AD was prompted by the determination that the life limit for alternate bolts that attach the drag link to the nose gear were not listed as airworthiness limitations. This AD requires establishing a life limit for these bolts. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
The FAA estimates this AD affects 187 airplanes. This service information specifies the life limits of the P/N 693-215 (standard P/N NAS6207-50D) bolt that attaches the drag link to the nose gear trunnion.
This AD has been made free for all website users. You can download the PDF below.
