Service Bulletin 24 is in the process of being updated to downgrade the compliance category from “Required” to “Recommended”. An analysis of the failed parts has shown that the failure was not caused by metal fatigue but probably caused by one or more abuse loads outside of the normal flight envelope. Additionally, as a product improvement, a new bracket will be available and upgrading burner assemblies to the new design standard is recommended as it gives greater resistance to abuse loading and improves inspection provisions.
