AD NUMBER: 2012-16-06
PRODUCT: All Airbus Model A300 B4-600 series airplanes and Model A310-203, -204, -221, and -222 airplanes.
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2012-16-06
ACTION: Final Rule
SUMMARY: This AD was prompted by a report of a capacitive density condensator (cadensicon) coil overheating during testing. This AD requires an inspection to determine if a certain fuel quantity indication computer (FQIC) is installed, replacement of identified FQICs, and modification of the associated wiring. The FAA is issuing this AD to detect and correct potential overheating of the cadensicon coil, which could create an ignition source inside a fuel tank, which, in combination with flammable fuel vapors, could result in a fuel tank explosion and consequent loss of the airplane.
DATES: This AD becomes effective September 18, 2012.
