Mandatory Safety Directives
A safety directive is distributed to all registered users when a condition is found to exist that may also exist in other aircraft in the fleet and which would cause a deviation from original design or unsafe condition for flight, rendering the aircraft unairworthy. This change, maintenance procedure, inspection procedure, or other procedures deemed appropriate by the manufacturer is mandatory and must be performed and documented in the individual aircraft logs in order for that aircraft to maintain compliance with ASTM standards.

Service bulletins are distributed to all registered owners when no unsafe condition exists that could lead to an un-airworthy condition, but a service problem has become repetitive for which the manufacturer has developed a design change, or service procedure change that will contribute to the improvement or convenience of operation or maintenance of the aircraft. Service bulletin changes are not mandatory to maintain the aircraft’s compliance with ASTM standards.
The manufacturer issues service letters on any subject that is considered helpful to the owners. Such letters are intended to maintain a good rapport with the owners, encourage feedback on service and other problems, or to circulate items of interest that an owner may feel would be of value to other owners. A service letter does not include any mandatory owner actions.
