GV / G550 Operators: Upcoming Task Awareness Notice
GV and G550 operators should be aware that when their 24-month Elevator Drive Rod Lubrication CMP 273019 Task becomes due that it should be planned for in conjunction with a larger inspection or other maintenance event.
This is due to the extensive tail section accessing necessary to complete the task. Also, operators can minimize down time and potentially reduce or offset costs by planning ahead. The Gulfstream specialists at West Star Aviation recommend scheduling this task in conjunction with a larger, major airframe inspection. The Elevator Drive Rod Lubrication comes due at 24-months and is recurrent at the 96 Month Inspection intervals.
West Star also notes If your aircraft is also scheduled for full paint during the large maintenance inspection, keep in mind to accomplish this task prior to paint as not to have to open the access panels on a new paint job.
