The FAA is proposing to rescind an Airworthiness Directive (AD 200-07-11) issued for all Piaggio Avantis to prevent the brake hydraulic fluid from leaking. It was prompted by reports of brake assembly rods contacting the brake valve tubing, which could compromise the airplane’s ability to stop during ground operations. Since then the FAA has determined it is no longer an unsafe condition and that regularly scheduled annual inspections address the subject. The FAA is taking comments until September 4.
