faa-2018-0245 amendment 39-19234 Fuel Selector
The wording by the FAA concerning requirements is open to several interpretations. My opinion is that they are stating that one preflight after the date given must be done and logged. Others have told me that is wrong that every preflight each time the plane is flown must include a placard review and a log entry must be made each preflight. Another opinion is that the preflight procedure needs to be altered to include the placard review and that needs to be logged. Those who differ with my opinion say if I am wrong and an incident occurs I could have difficulty with both insurance and FAA. If they are wrong then all that can happen is they wasted time in preflights and logging stuff. Anyone out there have any evidence to prove any of these opinions are wrong or right? Please don't tell me about common sense, there seems to be none.
This AD requires doing a preflight check of the fuel tank selector
cover to verify the left and right fuel tank selector placards are
located at the proper positions and replacing those that are improperly
located with new placards. The preflight check required in this AD may
be performed by the owner/operator (pilot) holding at least a private
pilot certificate and must be entered into the airplane records showing
compliance with this AD in accordance with 14 CFR 43.9 (a)(1)-(4) and
14 CFR 91.417(a)(2)(v). The record must be maintained as required by 14
CFR 91.417, 121.380, or 135.439.
