Overflying AD

Asked by: 1992 views FAA Regulations, General Aviation


If let's say there are 2.0 hours left until an upcoming AD, and the the flight gets delayed by an unexpected cause (flying around wx, ATC vectors, etc.) which results in landing after 2.1 hours, is that a violation because it exceeded the AD by 0.1?

Thank you.

    Yes it is a violation of the regulations as the aircraft is not airworthy. There are several simple AD’s that are required to be performed on a 100 hour basis. I know of an instructor who flew an aircraft being used for training and was returning to the home field, was within the 100 Hour grace period, but was cited because there is no extension of time for an AD similar to the grace period permitted on a 100 hour inspection. We made it a practice at our flight school to do all the 100 hour AD’s on the 50 hour oil changes on the training airplanes to avoid this issue. Most of these AD’s only took a minute to comply with.
