Correct. However the primary reason the FAA issued Airworthiness Directive 87-08-09 (AD) on 06-01-1987 was to prevent aircraft wheels on Large Transport Category Aircraft such as Boeings,etc. from catching fire in the event of over-heating,etc. Large aircraft wheels contain large amounts of magnesium which we know supports fire and is difficult to extinguish.

The AD applies to aircraft in use on the effective date of 06-01-1987.

The FAA also amended 14 CFR 25.733 (e) (Tires) which governs the certification of Large Transport Aircraft that all such aircraft be equipped with nitrogen filled tires on and after 02-1993.

There have some references to nitrogen use in aircraft tires ( some by me) that overlook the primary reason for the FAA issuing the AD.

One other thing - nitrogen is only required on Civil Large Catergory Aircraft. Those are defined by the FAA as those aircraft having a certificated takeoff weight of 75,000 lbs or more.

But dosen't the Asinine dilute the nitrogen? Or does your Asinine contain larger molocules than the nitrogen?

Asinine doesn't dilute anything. It takes over.

What if my take off weight is less than 75,000 lbs? Does the FAA have any specs on the Forest River Airflyte?

Top off with you air compressor, like they say it'll be 78% nitrogen which has bigger molecular and will be the of last natural gases in the air to leach through the rubber. Eventually your tires will be back up to the upper +90% nitrogen level IMO. Hey can I get some service over here? Two Beers please..

Be careful, the FAA will start having static fatigue and bird strike testing on RV's...

Now you all are being silly.

I simply posted my reply in an effort to simplify and perhaps narrow the scope of this thread when it comes to pulling nitrogen and aircraft tires into it.

Perhaps I failed in that effort - at least with some people here.
