This is a subject we receive many calls about. The basic scenario is a AD is issued in say 1990 and the applicability statement does not list specific models but lists a series of an aircraft i.e. Cessna 172s, Beech Hawkers etc. At a later date a new model is TC'd that is part of that series. Does the AD apply to this new model?
We receive phone calls from IA on both sides.
What say you?
Does a 1990 AD apply to an aircraft certified in 2000?
Would you list it in the logbooks as NA or "Fix incorporated by Mfr"?
Would you perform the inspection?
Would you not list anything?
