EASA Airworthiness Directive

Most countries are member of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and as such have signed the "Chicago Convention 1944" (111 pages, 2 Mb). Aviation rules and regulations in member countries are based on the recommendations of the ICAO.

This AD is issued in accordance with EC 1702/2003, Part 21A.3B. In accordance with EC 2042/2003 Annex I, Part M.A.301, the continuing airworthiness of an aircraft shall be ensured by accomplishing any applicable ADs. Consequently, no person may operate an aircraft to which an AD applies, except in accordance with the requirements of that AD, unless otherwise specified by the Agency [EC 2042/2003 Annex I, Part M.A.303] or agreed with the Authority of the State of Registry [EC 216/2008, Article 14(4) exemption].

EASA AD 2012 0097 R1, ROTAX

Excerpt from the document:

Reports from the field confirmed a non-compliance of pressure side fuel hoses installed on certain P/N 893114 fuel pumps, which may have resulted in a latent defect on a limited number of engines. The affected fuel hoses may not be fuel resistant in accordance with the specification.

This condition, if not corrected, could lead to detachment of particles from the fuel hose and irregularities in the carburetor function, possibly resulting in in-flight engine shutdown and forced landing, damage to the aeroplane and injury to occupants.
