EASA Warns of Stolen Bell Parts

EASA has posted two Suspected Unapproved Parts (SUP) notices. Both SUP Notices are for serialized Bell strap assemblies:

  • Product: BELL AB206 / B206
  • Part name STRAP ASSY
  • Part Number 206-310-004-101

The first SUPs Notice is for Serial Number LPFS8480. The second SUPs Notice is for Serial Number LPFS7659.

The two parts appear to have been reported from Sweden, on or about September 23, 2021.

In each case, EASA states the following:

“EASA has become aware that a Strap Assy with P/N 206-310-004-101 and S/N [see serial numbers, above] and its associated log card have disappeared from a maintenance facility. The part and log card are suspected stolen. The part is considered not-airworthy and not eligible for installation on an aircraft.”

Recommendation: If this part is found in stock or installed on an aircraft, it should be quarantined until a determination can be made regarding its eligibility for installation.”
