AD NUMBER: 2012-07-03
PRODUCT: All 328 Support Services GmbH (Type Certificate previously held by AvCraft Aerospace GmbH; Fairchild Dornier GmbH; Dornier Luftfahrt GmbH) Model 328-100 and -300 airplanes.
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2012-07-03
ACTION: Final Rule
SUMMARY: The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for all 328 Support Services GmbH (Type Certificate previously held by AvCraft Aerospace GmbH; Fairchild Dornier GmbH; Dornier Luftfahrt GmbH) Model 328-100 and -300 airplanes. That AD currently requires performing a detailed visual inspection of the cockpit door locking device and the surrounding area for proper installation, and corrective action if necessary.
This new AD requires removing or replacing the locking device of the cockpit door; performing operational tests, and repair if necessary; and, for certain airplanes, installing gap filler parts. This AD was prompted by a report that a righthand power lever jammed in flight-idle position during the landing roll-out, and the airplane was stopped by excessive braking.
The FAA is issuing this AD to detect and correct interference with the engine and flight control cables, which could result in reduced controllability of the airplane.
DATES: This AD becomes effective May 10, 2012.
