Las week, the EASA issued an Airworthiness Directive that allows most of the Dassault Falcon 7X fleet to resume flight operations. The type was grounded nearly four weeks ago after a runaway trim incident. The AD authorizes those Falcon 7Xs equipped with horizontal stabilizer electronic control unit (HSECU) part number 051244-02 (about two thirds of the fleet) to fly again. For those remaining aircraft equipped with HSECU 051244-04, “the prohibition of flights is maintained,” the AD reads.
