2010-CE-068-AD Disbonding of the wing skin from the wing spar

We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This emergency AD was sent previously to all known U.S. owners and operators of these airplanes. This AD requires obtaining written approval from the Manager, Wichita Aircraft Certification Office (ACO), to operate the airplane. This written approval must clearly state that operation is approved per Emergency AD 2010-26-54. This AD was prompted by a Cessna Model LC41-550FG airplane that suffered a significant structural failure in the wing during a production acceptance flight test. We are issuing this AD to prevent catastrophic failure of the wing due to disbonding of the wing skin from the wing spar.
