US FAA Creates AD for Kubicek burners with "EGEFLEX" fuel hoses

The USA's FAA has released an Airworthiness Directive related to the recently announced issue for Kubicek burners equiped with "EGEFLEX" fuel hoses. This AD is the same as the previously mentioned EASA AD for Kubicek burners and ensures that any US type certificated balloons will comply with the required checks and corrective actions.

CASA are listing both EASA and FAA ADs on their Hot Air Balloon AD page to ensure that any European or US type certificated hot air balloons operating in Australia will comply with the required checks and corrective actions.

NOTE: Updated to reflect R1 of the AD that was modified by the FAA to remove some unnecessary documentation references.
