FAA issues emergency AD on Embraer 135/145 rudders
23 January 2004

The FAA issued an emergency AD, requiring operators of Embraer 135 and 145 regional jets to inspect the aft rudder control rods and replace them if discrepancies are found. The action is taken following an incident in which an Emb-135 experienced rudder control difficulties during takeoff because the upper and lower control rods for the aft rudder section had failed.
