Comtek Introduces New CRJ Transcowl Repair in Response to AD
AMOC repair scheme for the CRJ700/900 Transcowl fixes problems highlighted by TCCA AD: CF-2009-33 and FAA AD: 2011-17-12
Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) have issued Airworthiness Directives (AD) for the Bombardier CRJ series 700, 701, 702, 705 and 900 airplanes mandating the inspection and reinforcement or repair of transcowl assemblies (Reference- TCCA AD: CF-2009-33; FAA AD – 2011-17-12).
Several cases have been reported of cracks in the joint extrusions securing the outer bondment to the acoustic panel of the nacelle transcowl assemblies. This could potentially cause an acoustic panel failure and possible runway debris, resulting in a number of potential safety and airworthiness issues.
In direct response to the Airworthiness Directives (AD), Comtek Advanced Structures has submitted and received approval on an AMOC repair scheme for the CRJ700/900 Transcowl for the following transcowl part numbers: CN624-2001-XXX, KCN624-2001-X with serial numbers up to and including SB0964. As a Transport Canada approved DAO, Comtek maintains a vast library of approved repair schemes for primary and secondary aircraft structures.
