Safety issue

Currently, Civil Aviation Advisory Publication (CAAP) 42B-1(0) and Airworthiness Bulletin AWB 02-003 Issue 2, are ambiguous regarding required inspection intervals for Private category aircraft airframe items. This may result in the items being operated past the specified aircraft manufacturer's inspection interval.

Safety Recommendation

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau recommends that the Civil Aviation Safety Authority review Civil Aviation Advisory Publication (CAAP) 42B-1(0) and Airworthiness Bulletin AWB 02-003 Issue 2, in order to clearly define the required inspection intervals affecting Private category aircraft airframe items.
