Opinion: FAA Trips Itself Up With AD Legal Interpretation
from Aviation Week
From June 22:
In April, the FAA responded to public comments on a proposed legal interpretation that clarified the agency's position on how to comply with an airworthiness directive. That interpretation was issued in response to the Airworthiness Directive Implementation Aviation Rulemaking Committee, which asked the agency to elaborate on an operator's continuing obligation to maintain a product in an AD-mandated configuration after the unsafe condition is resolved.
