*The AD Toolbox online airworthiness directives library is intended to be used as a guide only and should not be relied upon as conclusive evidence of AD applicability. Aircraft operators, inspectors, and persons performing maintenance are reminded that it is their responsibility under Sec. 39.3, 43.11, and 43.13 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR) to ensure compliance with all applicable airworthiness directives issued under 14 CFR 39.13

American Champion AD 17-07-10 Superseded by 18-14-06

New AD (18-14-06) further addresses maintenance for the American Champion 8KCAB:

The original AD 17-07-10 was “prompted by a report of a cracked hinge support and cracked hinge ribs, which resulted in partial loss of control with the aileron binding against the cove.” according to the superseding AD 18-14-06.

On January 11, 2018 the NPRM proposed to supersede AD 2017-07- 10, which applies to certain American Champion Aircraft Corp. (ACAC) Model 8KCAB airplanes. AD 2017–07–10 requires fabrication and installation of a placard to prohibit aerobatic flight, inspection of the aileron hinge rib and support, and a reporting requirement of the inspection results to the FAA. This AD was prompted by a report of a cracked hinge support and cracked hinge ribs, which resulted in partial loss of control with the aileron binding against the cove. Since we issued AD 2017–07–10, ACAC redesigned the aileron hinge supports with a reinforcement kit to strengthen the supports and prevent future damage from developing. This proposed AD would require repetitive inspections of the aileron hinge support, installation of the aileron hinge support reinforcement kit, and incorporation of revised pages into the service manual. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
