A proposed Airworthiness Directive would apply to various New Piper PA-23 models, and would require repetitive inspections of the flap control torque tube. The proposal stems from several reports of damage found in the torque tube, which could result in failure of the flap operating system. A proposed AD for Raytheon Beech models with V-tails would revise a current AD that requires inspections and modifications of the ruddervators. The revision would add a repetitive inspection of the fuselage bulkheads and change other inspections from a repetitive to a one-time action. Earlier this month, the FAA issued a correction to its recent AD for Bonanza and Barons; now, here is another correction, this time to clarify that an earlier AD has been nullified.
