No. The crash investigation for the aircraft that went down in South Carolina reported a fuel line issue. Some aircraft need to have an inspection of the line, and possible replacement. Other aircraft already have good fuel lines and don't need inspections.

The entire inspection, following the TCTO exactly, takes a whole 2 hours.

Those fancy new self health monitoring systems sure are a godsend when it comes to situations like this.

You mean that half psi drop in pressure wasn’t the world coming to an end?!?! Inconceivable!!! 😝
At least now there will be less blood behind the rules and hard learning curve (god willing of course).

Zap buddy you’re the best but you lost me here what does the Comission on Narcotic Drugs have to do with Alaska Land Information System? 😝 I kid, I kid although the CND part did have me scratching my head for a moment still waking up getting ready to hit the road.
