AD NUMBER: 2012-03-04
PRODUCT: Certain Airbus Model A310 series airplanes
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2012-03-04
ACTION: Final Rule
SUMMARY: The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus Model A310 series airplanes.
That AD currently requires, for certain airplanes, modifying the wire routing and installing additional protective sleeves. This new AD adds, for certain airplanes, modifying wire routings and installing a modified bracket. This AD was prompted by analyses of the wire routing showing that the route of the fuel electrical circuit in the right-hand wing must be modified in order to ensure better segregation between fuel quantity indication wires and the 115-volt alternating current wires.
The FAA is issuing this AD to prevent short circuits leading to arcing, and possible fuel tank explosion.
DATES: This AD becomes effective May 15, 2012.
