SE017: Maintenance Procedures – Servicing Landing Struts

Background

This safety enhancement reduces approach and landing accidents by re-emphasizing current maintenance rules, policies, and procedures developed by the commercial airline operators and the FAA. This re-emphasis specifically directs that approved maintenance programs related to the servicing of components incorporate all of the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) safety-related components and procedures.
