GULFSTREAM AEROSPACE LP:
Amendment 39-21165; Docket No. FAA-2020-0334; Product Identifier 2020-NM-014-AD.
(a) EFFECTIVE DATE This AD is effective August 27, 2020. (b) AFFECTED ADS None. (c) APPLICABILITY This AD applies to certain Gulfstream Aerospace LP Model Gulfstream G280 airplanes, certificated in any category, as identified in Civil Aviation Authority of Israel (CAAI) AD ISR-I-53-19-10-5, dated October 10, 2019 ("Israeli AD ISR-I-53-19-10-5"). (d) SUBJECT Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 53, Fuselage. (e) REASON This AD was prompted by a report of inadequate clearance between the fuel probes and forward fuel tank structure. The FAA is issuing this AD to address such inadequate clearance, which could result in a potential source of ignition in a fuel tank, possible fire, and consequent reduced structural integrity of the airplane. (f) COMPLIANCE Comply with this AD within the compliance times specified, unless al- ready done. (g) REQUIREMENTS Except as specified in paragraph (h) of this AD: Comply with all re- quired actions and compliance times specified in, and in accordance with, Israeli AD ISR-I-53-19-10-5. (h) EXCEPTIONS AND CLARIFICATIONS TO ISRAELI AD ISR-I-53-19-10-5 (1) Where Israeli AD ISR-I-53-19-10-5 refers to its effective date, this AD requires using the effective date of this AD. (2) Where Israeli AD ISR-I-53-19-10-5 requires operators to "check . . . clearance between fuel probes and forward fuel tank structure," this AD requires measuring the specified probes' distance to the adjacent skin. (3) Where Israeli AD ISR-I-53-19-10-5 requires operators to "adjust clearance" for the corrective action, this AD requires reinstallation of the probe at the correct distance. (4) Israeli AD ISR-I-53-19-10-5 requires compliance "at the next suitable planned maintenance inspection within the next 36 months." This AD re- quires compliance within 36 months after the effective date of this AD. (5) The rework (reinstallation of the fuel probes at the correct distance) required for inadequate clearance must be done before further flight after the measurement. (i) OTHER FAA AD PROVISIONS The following provisions also apply to this AD: (1) Alternative Methods of Compliance (AMOCs): The Manager, Large Aircraft Section, International Validation Branch, FAA, has the authority to approve AMOCs for this AD, if requested using the procedures found in 14 CFR 39.19.

If sending information directly to the International Section, send it to the attention of the person identified in paragraph (j) of this AD.
