FAA AD 2012-24-09 HET Turbochargers FAA AD

          The FAA has issued  AD2012-24-09 on HET model TAO411 turbo chargers overhauled or repaired since August 29, 2012, using a turbine wheel, P/N 410188- 0019, serial number H120716 through H121988.       Affected turbochargers are to be replaced before further flight. 
         The AD does provide for special flight permits provided that the flight is limited to three hours, the turbocharger boost is set to “Off” in the cockpit if applicable and the wastegate for the turbocharger is safety wired in the open position.
                This AD affects the Cessna Model T182T. Cessna has determined that no aircraft have been factory delivered and that no spares engines or spares turbochargers have been sold by Cessna Service Parts and Programs that are affected. Cessna Single Engine Service Letter SEL-81-02 Revision 1: Transmittal of HET Alert Service Bulletin No.048 and Lycoming Mandatory Service Bulletin No. 604 have been issued to convey this message.


FAA Correction to AD on Turbocharger turbine wheel on Continental and Lycoming Engines The FAA is correcting an airworthiness directive (AD) 2012-24-09 that published in the Federal Register. That AD applies to Lycoming Engines TSIO-540-AK1A, and Continental Motors, Inc. TSIO-360-MB, TSIO-360-SB, and TSIO-360-RB reciprocating engines, with certain Hartzell Engine Technologies (HET) turbochargers, model TA0411, part number 466642-0001; 466642-0002; 466642-0006; 466642-9001; 466642-9002; or 466642-9006, or with certain HET model TA0411 turbochargers overhauled or repaired since August 29, 2012. The Summary paragraph and the Applicability paragraph list an incorrect engine model for Lycoming Engines. This document corrects those errors. In all other respects, the original document remains the same.
