Falcon 7X Wheel Well Electrical Plug Corrosion

April 2013

During recent inspections of Dassault Falcon 7X aircraft, Duncan Aviation technicians found corrosion on the electrical disconnect plugs in the wheel wells. In particular, the corrosion affected the group of plugs located on the ceiling of the Main Landing Gear (MLG) well. This plug gang is in the direct line of the outer tire rotation water spray.

Duncan Aviation reminds you at your next inspection to comply with Dassault maintenance task 05-50-00-620-801 which has you apply temporary protection type II, Dinitrol AV30, on all wheel well electrical connectors.
