Faa no crack policy l.jpg

FAA No-Crack Policy

The Old Policy

For cracks found in structural components some ADs have allowed continued operational flight if the cracks are smaller than a certain size.

Inspection requirements will be more stringent for known cracks.

The New Policy

Continued operational flight with known cracks in primary structural components should not be allowed.

Small Airplane Directorate will adhere to this basic policy.
