AD Issued on Maules M4 to M7s 2008-24-02 elevator horn paint.

This directive (AD) is for Maule Aerospace airplanes, Models M-4 through M-7, in any category. This AD results from mis-assembly after elevator cable maintenance.  It requires painting elevator horn sides and cable end parts in yellow enamel, and a maintenance manual update.

SSA would note that this is a one time AD, and does not address continuing maintenance and future changes or installation instructions for new elevator cables after 2008 compliance.  Control circuit continuity and correct operation should always be assured by a positive control check following assembly or maintenance of tugs or gliders.

 This AD has a 12-month compliance  period following the effective date of December 30, 2008.

Full text of the AD may be found at: link.
