(d) SUBJECT Joint Aircraft System Component (JASC)/Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 3410, FLIGHT ENVIRONMENT DATA; 3420, ATTITUDE AND DIRECTION DATA SYSTEM. (e) UNSAFE CONDITION This AD was prompted by an automatic reset occurring when the display internal monitor detects a potential fault causing intermittent loss of airspeed, attitude, and altitude information during flight. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the software interacting with a graphics processing chip defect. The unsafe condition, if not addressed, could result in intermittent loss of airspeed, attitude, and altitude information during flight with consequent loss of airplane control. (f) COMPLIANCE Comply with this AD within the compliance times specified, unless al- ready done. (g) REQUIRED ACTIONS (1) Before further flight, revise the limitations section of the airplane flight manual (AFM) for your airplane by inserting a copy of this AD or by making a pen and ink change to add: "Operation under Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) or night Visual Flight Rules (VFR) is prohibited." (2) The action required by paragraph (g)(1) of this AD may be performed by the owner/operator (pilot) holding at least a private pilot certificate and must be entered into the aircraft records showing compliance with this AD in accordance with 14 CFR 43.9(a)(1) through (4) and 14 CFR 91.417(a)(2)(v). The record must be maintained as required by 14 CFR 91.417. This authority is not applicable to aircraft being operated under 14 CFR part 119. (h) SPECIAL FLIGHT PERMIT Special flight permits are prohibited. (i) ALTERNATIVE METHODS OF COMPLIANCE (AMOCS) (1) The Manager, Fort Worth ACO Branch, FAA, has the authority to approve AMOCs for this AD, if requested using the procedures found in 14 CFR 39.19. In accordance with 14 CFR 39.19, send your request to your principal inspector or local Flight Standards District Office, as appropriate. If sending information directly to the manager of the certification office, send it to the attention of the person identified in paragraph (j). (2) Before using any approved AMOC, notify your appropriate principal in- spector, or lacking a principal inspector, the manager of the local flight standards district office/certificate holding district office.
