AWAL has approved the removal of calendar TBO’s from propellers fitted to piston engine ‘Warbirds’. Please read the attached AWAL Engineering Bulletin.
AWAL has issue Engineering Bulletin EB18-001 which approved the use of NDT Australia’s procedures for verifying the material specifications of undocumented non-ferrous materials used during the manufacture of aircraft parts.

I would like to bring to the attention of all T6/SNJ/Havard and Wirraway owners, UK CAA AD G-2013-001. The inspection criteria of this AD is a little more comprehensive than the associated FAA AD. Corrosion has been found in an Australian registered SNJ during compliance with the UK AD. AWAL recommends owners have their Maintenance Orgs inspect their aircraft IAW the AD. UK CAA AD G-2013-0001
AWAL is pleased to advise that it has negotiated an amendment to AD/PHS/10 that extends the compliance time from 6 to 12 years. This is a great outcome for our members and will save many thousands of dollars for those affected. AWAL has issued a Maintenance Direction, with some additional maintenance requirements as a blanket amendment to approved Maintenance Programs.
