Airworthiness Directives; Trig Avionics Limited Transponders
AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.
ACTION: Final rule.

––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

SUMMARY: The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Trig Avionics Limited TT31, Avidyne Corporation AXP340, and BendixKing/Honeywell International KT74 Mode S transponders. This AD was prompted by the discovery that the retaining cam that engages in the mounting tray may not withstand g-forces experienced during an emergency landing. This AD requires one-time inspection of the transponder installation and, depending on the findings, removal of the affected transponder for modification. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

DATES: This AD is effective August 27, 2019.
