AD NUMBER: 2007-13-07
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2007-13-07
SUMMARY: The FAA is superseding an existing
airworthiness directive (AD), which applies to certain Airbus Model
A330-200, A330-300, A340-200, and A340-300 series airplanes; and
Model A340-541 and -642 airplanes.
That AD currently requires repetitively resetting the display
units (DUs) for the electronic instrument system (EIS), either by
switching them off and back on again or by performing a complete
electrical shutdown of the airplane.
This new AD requires installing new software, which would end
the actions required by the existing AD. This new AD also adds
additional airplanes that may be placed on the U.S. Register in the
This AD results fromincident in which all of the DUs for the EIS
went blank simultaneously during flight.
We are issuing this AD to prevent automatic reset of the DUs for
the EIS during flight and consequent loss of data from the DUs,
which could reduce the ability of the flightcrew to control the
airplane during adverse flight conditions.
