SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2012-16-11
ACTION: Final Rule
SUMMARY: The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus Model A318- 112 and -121 airplanes; Model A319-111, -112, -115, -132, and -133 airplanes; Model A320-214, - 232, and -233 airplanes; and Model A321-211, -212, -213, and -231 airplanes.
This AD was prompted by reports that some nuts installed on the wing, including on primary structural elements, were found cracked. This AD requires inspecting to determine if certain nuts are installed or cracked, and replacing the affected nuts if necessary.
The FAA is issuing this AD to detect and correct missing and cracked nuts, which could result in the structural integrity of the airplane wings being impaired.
DATES: This AD becomes effective September 21, 2012.
