AD NUMBER: 2007-19-11
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2007-19-11
SUMMARY: The FAA is
superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for Turbomeca
Artouste III B, Artouste III B1, and Artouste III D turboshaft
That AD currently requires removing certain fuel pumps from
service and installing serviceable fuel pumps. This AD requires the
same actions and adds to the applicability, additional fuel pumps
by serial number (SN).
This AD results fromTurbomeca identifying a number of fuel pump
SNs that they omitted from the original population.
We are issuing this AD to prevent reduced engine fuel flow and
subsequent loss of control of the helicopter, or an accident.
