Twin Commander Prepared for AD Inspection

The FAA has issued AD 2009-25-02, effective Jan. 8, 2010, that requires owners of 690, 690A, and 690B Twin Commanders to have their aircraft inspected for corrosion between the upper wing skin panels and engine mount beam support straps.

“We are committed to ensuring that Twin Commander owners can be proud of the performance of their aircraft,” Isley said, “and confident in continuing safe operation of them for decades to come.“
