Reminder to Aircraft Owners & Maintenance Providers - AD Delivery
By now, no doubt, Aircraft owners received a little card from the FAA (that's Federal Aviation Administration for those who get confused with all these alphabet names) encouraging you to sign up online to receive your Airworthiness Directives (ADs) and Special Airworthiness Information Bulletins (SAIBs). As of March 2010, the FAA will no longer mail paper copies. While the FAA will continue to mail paper copies of Emergency ADs for the foreseeable future, aircraft owners and other interested persons will need to sign up to receive e-mail notifications for all other ADs through this free subscription service.
It's quick and easy.
Go to http://rgl.faa.gov (note: there is no "www" needed). Click on the link "Subscribe for e-mail delivery of ADs and SAIBs" then select your specific aircraft, engine and propeller make and model information. Make sure you include all three so you're sure to get these updates specific to you.
You can also contact the FAA via email 9-AMC-FAA-Information-Products@faa.gov (note: by clicking this link you will either open up Outlook, if you use that venue for emails; or you will be asked to set it up. The alternative is to copy and paste the email address and use your email service). Be sure to give detailed model numbers for your aircraft, engine and propeller in the email.
Or you can contact the FAA by telephone (405) 954-4103 and they will gladly register you.
